    I love chili too, but this was like instant mouth blister... not at all pleasant!

    Ok, I need to post and run today. I'm spending far too much time online and not enough studying. This has to change.

    I feel like crap today, I woke up in the foulest mood and I have no idea why. It feels like a PMS bitch-slap except I just finished my period. Hopefully I'll cheer up as the day progresses.

    Eats yesterday:
    B: Coffee and 3 brazil nuts
    L: Lamb and broccoli with tuber-hash
    D: Beef sausages with mashed potato and broccoli, 4 squares 85%

    Exercise:
    'A' workout from NROLFW. Have taken all the weight from my squats until my form is right. Air-squats are getting much better and I can get nice and low (thighs below parallel), I'll go back to adding weight next week I think.
    Day 3/week 1 100pushups program.

    DOMS today are concentrated in my quads and adductors (? - the ones in the inside of the thigh). My triceps and shoulders are also giving me a little trouble, but I love it.

    Sounds like you're getting where you want to be, even with the odd pissy day thrown in. Good stuff

    OMG I'm horrible about being so scheduled. I really ought to shake it up more.

    Sometimes you just wake up feeling cranky. I hate it when that happens but tend to embrace it- and just let people know "Look, I'm cranky today. Watch out." The mood generally passes by mid-day.

    It's a good kind of pain. Nothing like achy muscles to remind you that you did something worthwhile. Way to go chica!

    I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in Chapters.
    Of course the actual purchase will probably have to wait until I get a "real" job...

    Glad you're feeling better

    His basic prescription is don't have one! Eat your good foods but mix up when you eat them. Don't eat every meal at the same time, don't IF at the same time. Mix it up! Workout when you have the energy to do it and rest when you feel lazy.


    I'm probably not explaining it very well, I highly recommend you download the podcast and have a listen, it's very interesting.
    Which podcast is this one??
    And where would I find it??

I also (although, of course I'm not really thinking about this... ) think I'm losing bodyfat. I refuse to get on the scale anymore than once a month, I really don't want to go there again. But the old favourite test (how does my belly look) seems to be giving me good news.


    Rest day. I think 10 hours on my feet is enough for a Tuesday.
    Yea! for the return of your energy levels!

    And yes. 10 hours is enough

    I'm subscribed through I-Tunes to the Underground Wellness show, but here's the link to the episode through blogtalkradio. Hopefully you can link to it from there. If not, just subscribe through I-Tunes and it's the Feb 7th episode.

    I too am finding my ankle better after just a day when I'd normally be hobbling for days!. Maybe thats primal for you!

    hope your cranky mood improved!

    Thanks DR, I kind of embrace it too, especially when I'm here by myself which I am today (lucky for the kids, they're in school ). I'm starting to lift a little, but I need to get out of the house and I need to study and the two don't mix. I'm just on here quickly while I eat my lunch then I think I'll give the books another hour then I'm going to the beach. The ocean fixes everything.

    Em, I have so totally given up scheduling for the most part! Now, Of course I have a certain amount of stuff (work, school) that is "scheduled", but other than that I try to go with how I feel that day. Yesterday I took the pupper on a long walk and afterward just did NOT feel like lifting. So I didn't! And I'm good with that... I'll lift this weekend sometime, but I'm also doing mad yardwork on Saturday and that will work me out something fierce!

    Not sure what I'm doing this weekend, as the boy child will be here so we'll play it by ear, but there will be some movie watching with him for sure.

    And wine tomorrow night.

    I'm jealous of your ButtDOMS! I almost never get DOMS lately after a "workout" (by which I mean dicking around with this or that from PBF) -- I know it's because I feel like I'm so much further behind physically than everyone else here on the forums, and so I don't push myself at all. Because, you know, THAT will help solve the problem! Argh! *laughs*

    I can't do a real plank pushup either ... though I feel like I'm failing better than I was before! Ha!

    It did, thanks. Glad to hear your ankle is getting better so quickly.

    Mmmm, wine... (Imagine I'm saying that the way homer Simpson says 'donuts' ) I didn't lift today either, my DOMS were still too sore so I decided to give myself an extra rest day.

    I haven't worked out for a month and I'm only just getting back into it now so I doubt you're that much further behind me. Now if you're comparing yourself to people like Batty and Unsuperb, well then that's just asking for a big dollop of inadequacy!


    Good day today, I had the worst night's sleep and woke up at 5am but hey, I feel really good! Whattup with that!?

    I had a haircut, it's all levelled off at one length finally and it looks purty.

    I went to a training session for a literacy program that I've volunteered for at my kids school. It's to help the kids who are being left behind in their reading and writing. I am such an avid reader and the idea that anyone could be deprived of the pleasure that books can give is terrible. I'm really looking forward to helping these poor kids and seeing them catch up with their classmates.

    Charlie had a haircut too and looks about half the dog he was this morning. He can see again now which is great, he kinda had that adolescent hiding-behind-the-fringe thing going on.

    Eats yesterday:
    B: Coffee and 3 brazil nuts
    L: Lamb and kale cooked in masala mix over a small serve of rice
    D: Prawn stir-fry with vegies and rice noodles, a couple of tequilas and orange

    Exercise:
    Rest day, SORE!!!


    I'm going through one of my, um, ah, not sure what to call it. Every few years I feel the urge to do something different. It could be my job, where I live, my relationship, anything really. I get really impatient with sameness, I blame my parents and the fact that I've been moved all over the place as a Navy brat my whole life. Anyhoo, I'm having one now. I want to move. I'm fed up with Perth, it's lovely, but it's hot and dry and brown and I've BTDT now. I want to live somewhere green, I can't decide whether I want cold and green (New Zealand maybe) or hot and green (tropical Queensland perhaps), but I know that I want to live somewhere else.
    The problems with this desire are many and varied;
    I have kids who theoretically should stay within driving distance of their father.
    I have another 10 months or so till I finish my degree and then I really need to complete a 12 month Grad program in order to be employable anywhere in the world.
    Completing said grad program will be really hard to do with my kids as it's full-time shift work and nursing shifts (0700-1530, 1300-2130 or 2100-0730 - 7 days a week) do NOT work around school hours and I have no family near by to help out.
    I kinda love my boyfriend and don't really want to leave him, but by the same token, we don't live together and have no plans to anytime soon.

    So, consequently I feel rather hemmed in and stuck and believe me, this is not a good way for me to feel, I'm likely to do something impulsive and stupid when I feel trapped. I will try hard not to do that of course, but I know me.
