What's 25 years?

I took my son (and one of his friends) down to the dojo this afternoon - well he actually asked to go. I gave them a 40 minute bag workout. Waiting with anticipation for a text tomorrow about sore shoulders. It was a great workout. I threw in some overhead lifts with steel bars and a lovely long plank session, when I got to yell at them to keep their knees up. They are younger, stronger and fitter than me, but I made them sweat. Next time I choose the music!

Over the weather, over talking about the weather, over dressing for the weather. Bought a singlet made of bamboo today, cosyish now.
There is a ten week 'work place' fitness programme starting mid July and I registered and did the fitness test yesterday. Aced the fitness part of the test - I'm already at excellent (VO2max) for the age group younger than me! So, not too much work to do there. I have more muscle than expected for a girlie (yaah!), but as usual a higher than normal BMI (it's all that muscle!!). And sitting a couple of kgs above where I'm happy - even if it is all muscle, lol. Still have blood test to complete.
I've managed to entice three other team members to do it as well, so it should be good to have the challenge of everyone being 'healthy' at the same time. Basic concept is eat well, drink water, and exercise for 30 minutes a day for ten weeks and repeat the tests.

Two weeks, twelve weeks...

Gaah, it's not about the weeks. It's about the days. Two more to get this assignment away. I'd like to think that then its time to focus on me.

Friday - duh

Great Thursday, great food and a fabulous class followed by study time. And then, about 8 pm I got my second assignment results back and it was a stinking little arse of a B. I don't do Bs. I'm an A student. So what does one do? Chocolate of immediate raging urge to swallow chocolate. I resisted all evening and the next morning. By Friday noon it was all over and off I trotted to the supermarket. Several 'treats' later and a dinner of potato chips and I think I'm over it. Tomorrow is an other day.

Sickness, holidays and mice

Ewgh, nothing worse than sleeping in the same bed as someone who is sick, and snotty, and snoring - lots of it at work too, hope I don't get it. Another ok day, not much exercise, just a meander up and down the main street at lunch time (bought tickets for holiday at Surfers!). I've had a headache all day and I want to eat to make it better, but I ask myself - am I hungry - and I never am. Probably not drinking enough water, without the coffee prompt, as I usually have a glass of water with each cup. Bikini, bikini, bikini, :D Breakfast, bacon and eggs; lunch, leftover veges and cold chicken; dinner, lamb chops and the most delicious cauliflower fried 'rice' (from Primal cookbook). Square of dark chocolate. Oh, and a stupid protein bar at about 3pm. I'm trying to stop any snacking, and no food after dinner. I read an article on MDA about mice. Both groups ate the same amount of food. The group that ate it over a 24hr period got fat, whereas the mice that ate it over 8 hrs didn't.

Coffee time?

Lol, how often do you get offered a free coffee the day after you give up coffee? Breakfast was bacon and eggs and veggies from the night before, lunch was chicken from the night before and the delicious soup from two days ago ( leftovers are the best!). Dinner was steak and the same veges as the night before, newly made but I just loved the taste I had to make it again: kumera, parsnip, carrots, celery, ginger, garlic, onion, brussel sprouts, nom nom. A cup of tea and a square of chocolate. I am truly not hungry, but the head is conflicted. Busy, busy day out in the buses again customer service is great, but very draining. Not getting any study done at nights. If anyone can advice on how to get paragraphs into this stupid blog, please do!
