ANOTHER super day

I have had another great day.......

Great time with both my children
A great chat to my hubby on the phone - he is away :(
A good diet day (one little slip but thats not going to sink the boat)
A great cardio session this morning and a great back calves and cardio workout tonight
A productive day around the house

Who else had a great day?????

As you can see lots of 'great' things happening here. I even took the time tonight and had a soak in an epsom salt bath. I have weekly massage and bi weekly dry needling appointments. Well this week my massage therapist is away on holiday (why do supportive therapies people need to take holidays.... LOL) and I had to promise to her that I would take at least 1 epsom salt bath this week as a replacement to her work.

Yesterday I had my dry needling appointment. At the same time my therapist gave me an upper body assessment and identified strong and weak points. I made a few hand position changes in my workout tonight following her recommendation and it made a HUGE difference.

Its 8.30 and I am going to enjoy reading my book in bed and have a bit extra zzzzz's

Hi all,

well I am going to try really hard to try and post at least a couple of times a week from now on!

I've got an exciting 16 weeks ahead of me - I am going to give it my best shot to get back on stage again!!! YES I am very excited and YES I will come in, in the best shape of my life!

I'm training SMART not hard! So far so good I am coping just fine with comp prep combined with:

Living in a remote location
Having two small children (1 child under 2), and
A husband who travels lots for work

I do all my morning cardio at home - I have a studio in our yard and I have converted this into a 'home' gym with a treadmill, cross trainer and an exercise bike. I then train weights at the local gym here in town 5 afternoons a week.

My boys WILL not suffer or miss out because of my comp prep - I make sure that my two little boys and my very special man always come first, and I manage this by 'organisation' in the household!

Stay with me blog gang and enjoyt the journey - the focus is still on fit for life, but with a goal of a competition thrown in there as well!
