March goals

Monday, March 04, 2013

I've been in maintenance for a month now (Woohoo!), so my goals have changed. I still have goals though, so here they are!

emoticon Keep maintaining around the 67kg mark (I tend to see numbers anywhere from 66kg (fluke, I think) to 68kg, depending on a lot of factors)

emoticon Work out 5 times per week (usually 2 boxing and 3 ST, but want to add running back in somewhere)

emoticon Do a pull up without the band

emoticon Run Round the Bays this weekend and not die (I signed up on a whim and haven't trained due to illness, work stuff, being out of town, and general laziness)

emoticon Eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies every day. I'm slipping on this one so I need to get back on track!!

So, there ya go. I'll update at the end of the month and let y'all know how I went!

    Sounds great!!

PS: How do you use a band (or anything else) to assist you in pull ups? I'll like to one day be able to do a proper pull up, but don't know how to get there!

    Very good goals! An easy way to get in your servings of fruits and veggies is to 1, eat the ones you really like, and 2, try to eat 2 at every meal. I usually have baby carrots at lunch, just because I really like them, they're crunchy, easy to pack, you can have a cup of them, and they're tasty! So enjoy what you like!

Where I've been

Sunday, March 03, 2013

In Wellington with the boyfriend again.

He is just as goofy as me, and I love it!

And we were even social this weekend! Went out for drinks with some of his workmates (I think they liked me!) One friend snapped this photo. He looks a little stunned, but I look nice, LOL!

Why you shouldn't deadlift while sleepy...

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Because your reaction time is delayed and you could keep bumping the bar into your knees instead of getting them out of the way in time...

    Bummer! I usually scrape my shins.....may have to start wearing sweats!

Good job tough....deadlifts are hard, but incredible good for you!

Stay Strong!

Check out my new toys

Saturday, February 23, 2013

My very own focus mitts! I wanted pink ones to go along with my pink gloves but these were on sale. I got these PLUS a pair of gloves for $50, down from $70. Since I didn't need the gloves I put a photo on facebook and offered them for $20 to anyone looking to start boxing (I figured someone might want to try it without a huge investment). They were snapped up in minutes, so that means that my focus mitts only cost me $30 in the end! YAY bargains!

In other news, my trainer is trying to kill me, and my hands hurt. I did 2 pull ups and 2 almost-but-not-quite pull ups today, as well as the rest of my killer program. Hurts so good! Not a bad effort after only getting a few hours sleep! Must give a shout out to Chaley3, who is my friend on facebook and who allowed me a safe space to vent some feelings last night when I couldn't sleep. I love my network of sparkfriends! I really couldn't ask for better people to be in my life.
