sexist as it may seem LOL I have always said men are better for training us old ladies!! that is so freaking awesome. way to go!!! the power lifters do have special dead lifting shoes so they may have some heel. I am not sure. Once you have the proper squat going on, the weight will climb a lot. ditto with the deads. there is a female masters 3 power lifter at my gym. masters 3 is over 50s. she apparently started a couple of years back barely being able to bench the bar for 20 reps. the bar at our gym is 20kgs. she now does about 52kgs or so. they do only have to do one lift, but still. pretty impressive.
bumpity bump. monsoon weather here. I have a very twitchy red dog too. he had to have his dew claws amputated so he cant do any exercise where he may bang the stitches for about a week. consequently we are both climbing the walls. I've even had to resort to doing the kids just dance on the wii. going to potato for 5 or so days in honour of the irish ancestors this week for St patricks day.
Poor doggy. No rain to speak of here, but it's a bit windy. Still very warm but from our point of view the cyclone has been pretty much a non-event.
Finally Blue skies up here again. Irish eyes are smiling
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
my eftpos card got declined getting diesel today so I had to credit card it. short week due to the dog or I would be off having a whisky for the ancestors. I may be able to find enough change or just have a bourbon and pretend. except we didn't go via America LOL
No Irish ancestry here, but I did use potatoes tonight on my cottage pie tonight. My main reason was so I would have something to whip my 10-day-old cream into
I managed to find some money. drove over the hill to the pub and they only had Scottish whisky!!! so potato hack, coffee with calcitrim milk and scotch yesterday. I think they were even English potatoes!
Foggy here today. What, fog?? In the Waikato?? Surely not . I guess it begins.
