So I was a little concerned that my dear friend Kimmy Hamilton and Margie were not going to be able to come along with the new dates, you see a big part of why I am competing has to do with my wonderful friend KIMMY. She is to busy these days to keep her blog for those who have the plesure of knowing her. Anyway she emailed me this morning and they are still coming. Thank god!!! Margie and her have to prepare me for stage, because I have no idea. Well after Jo’s seminar I’m sure to have much more of an idea.
So I still have a hell off a lot of work up till then, so I had better get off this computer and go train HARD!!!

Well another week down. I have had a pretty good week. Cardio has been a not quite as good as usual. Did some extra yesterday due to missing a spin class and today’s is not due to the long weekend, ummmm … don’t ask. I will have to motivate myself, which I do 5 mornings a week, so I look forward to doing spin and having someone else kick me up the bum instead.
The other day while training chest I had to do my exercises out off order or I would have been waiting for ever for the weights I use. I have built up to be able to do around 12-14 maybe 16 full push ups. WELL because I did them (superset with another chest exercise) first I managed to do 24 full push ups!!! I was not only surprised but very pleased with myself LOL. I didn’t realise I could do that many caus if I do my chest exercises in order there would be no way I could pump out that many at the end. Something to strife for anyway 20 full push ups at end of training chest, when I get there I will let you know. ;)Well I just wanted to brag about my push ups so I am off to do some cardio before it is too hot for me hehe
Have an awesome day everyone. HAPPY

I have four weeks left of holiday from uni. I have picked up a little massage work, which is great because the money is needed ;)
Today I am writing a time table and plan, you see I can not afford to not be extremely organised now and once uni goes back. This semester we have two 15 week subjects condensed into 5 week, Maths Education 2 and Language Education 2. They are theoretical subjects as well not practical.
One reason for the time table now is so I can try and get some of the readings for the subject out of the way prior to commencement, that way when I read them again, they may be a little familiar. Well I’m hoping anyway LOL. Also I can not and will not let uni interfere with my training, so the more organised I am the better.
Yesterday I did a great spin class, probably seemed a little harder than usual because two classes were cancelled last week. I love spin/RPM. It is such an effective workout. Another bonus is you don’t get muscle soreness after the class just during ;). I enjoy them so much I have been tempted to update my outdated qualifications so I can teach it, however enough off that at present as I really do have enough on my plate for a few months.
I am actually going to miss the first day back of uni. I have just as important things to attend too. Thanks to Sam I got offered a great deal in regard to
I spoke To
Well I had better get on with the day, going to be another hot one by the feel. Jacob has gone off with his dad, I kind of always feel a bit naked when he has gone. Last weekend was the first weekend he went with his dad for the whole weekend, where I didn’t have to be interstate or anything. My goodness he is growing up. He said to me before he went, ‘don’t worry mum……. I will miss you’….. He appears to have the gift of the gab that boy!!! Knows Just what to say and when to say it, and he is three!! ….My other three I can’t keep up with, especially the younger two, what social lives they live!!! ….Back to school soon enough and they will have to buckle down a little.
Hope you are all having an awesome day!!

Well training is going awesome, can see positive changes occurring, did notice a funny little cyst thing on my lower abdominals last night whilst lazing around sweltering in the heat we are having. Don’t think it is anything to worry about will get it checked out next week. Might have been there for ages, just covered in good ole’ padding.
I’m hoping Kerry comes up from their holiday down the coast, would be awesome to catch up with her and her family.
Well I must get on with my chores so to speak, have an awesome weekend everyone

I wasn’t able to train properly while over there though because the two gyms we were near too didn’t allow casual visits would you believe. So that was a bit of a bummer, I certainly didn’t need. Never mind life goes on and now I have more work cut out for me over the next 12 weeks.
For the last six weeks or so my dear friend Sam has been training me online in preparation to compete, either at the end of March at Wagga Wagga or if not then July in Melbourne. I have a lot of work cut out for me, but I am determined to get there.
I haven’t written any goals yet for this year, been thinking about them but haven’t got anything on paper yet. However I was looking over my goals that I had written on Sue’s forum and ones I had with my very dear friend Kim Hamilton and I was very pleased that I had actually exceeded most of them well all the fitness ones.
I must admit though one goal I had was to meditate and visualize at least three times a week, I certainly didn’t accomplish that so will endeavor to accomplish that this year.
So in total since I started losing the weight I put on during my pregnancy with Jacob I have lost over 25 kgs. Not actually exactly sure as I lost quite a bit before I was game enough to get on the scales. However that is a pretty good estimate.
Well I will post again soon, I am on holiday at present, and this is the last year off my uni degree. YIIIPPPPPPPYYYYYYYY!!! I’m kinda over uni
