Well not a lot happening here, uni is getting busier; I really have to give myself a kick in the bum as I am not that motivated to be there at present. Not sure what that is about, I better get bloody motivated as assignments are starting to roll on in!!

I have been doing a bit of soul searching lately trying to decide what I want in my life lately. If you don’t even know what you want how can you ask the universe for it?? It will come to me eventually I’m sure.

I’ve gone back to sewing for enjoyment, started last week, great teacher!! I can’t wait until tomorrow for my next lesson. Sewing is much more exciting than uni for me at present. At present I am learning how to sew elastic into stretch lycra and velvet. I am very pedantic and fussy with some things, so I am sure to annoy my teacher with this as I used to annoy my old teacher. If you are going to do it you got get it right!!!

My almost 16 year old came with me to the gym a couple of times last week. Was great to have someone to train with not sure if he is going to continue or not, I think he would much rather train with his mates.

I did an RPM class on the weekend and am just about to go to another one. Forgotten how much I love to hate them!! I enjoyed it, but it was bloody hard.

The pic is one I love of Jacob that his dad messed around with, anyway have a great day all!!! I’m off to RPM class

Well what a marvellous weekend we had!! The comp was great, and just as importantly so was meeting up with Kimmy, Sue, Hilary, Sam, Margie and Kerry and Katie again. And meeting Jodie, Di, Cheryl, Lia, Rae, Bekki, and Jade for the first time was awesome!!

I enjoyed the company as much if not more than the comp. I stayed with Hilary and Kerry, both are just great girls!! We had a ball and they are such both wonderful company. It’s like we have been friends for ever.

The comp was awesome, some great competition, it is such an inspirational experience. All the girls who competed should be so very proud of themselves!! What a competition, I also got a new appreciation of just how much blood sweat and tears goes into competing!! It certainly isn’t for the light hearted.

After the comp we went out for a great meal in Lygon Street. What a feast, I never know what to order so having a smorgasbord really suited me because we could all have a little of this and that!! YUMMO!!! I think we all felt a little full and bloated after our desserts.

I would like to thank all the girls for making the whole experience a memorable and wonderful experience, can’t wait to do it again! :)

Thanks so much guys for your well wishes!!

My hip is great!! My quad fortunately is fine as well.

My shoulder is still not good, had another massage today, will see the effect over the next few days, think I will have to watch and cut out what exercises that appear to contribute to trigger it, presses seem fine lateral side raise not good :(

Lat pull down seems okay.

Have a great weekend everyone

Happy Birthday LIA!!!!

Well I had a deep tissue massage on Sunday, and that helped my shoulder, although it still isn’t 100%. I’m just putting of the acupuncture to see if the massage helps as I can’t really afford both at present.

Helped my hips, which play up HEAPS!!

Yesterday at the gym I had the strangest feeling in the top of my left quadricep/ hip flexors when I was doing lunges. There was three little pops which didn’t hurt when it happened but bloody hurt afterwards. Not at all sure what it was and today other than DOMS I think it is okay. LOL !! Gosh I sound like I’m falling apart LOL!! Well training and nutrition are back on track well and truly after my wonderful holiday of fun and indulgent behaviour.

Enjoy the rest of your week all!!
