1 goal already met and I passed 3 assignments today!

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

emoticon Do 5 push ups in a row (girly ones). Yesterday in class we had to do 4 sets of 8 push ups and I did them! YAY ME!

Just a note on the push ups. I did do girly ones. I'll admit it. Dara (Hi hun!) made an excellent point yesterday about the benefits of full push ups vs girly ones. She made very good points, and I wonder why wall push ups aren't offered in classes. The options are full or girly. I chose girly ones because....I know my form would be bad. The form of the ladies doing full push ups last night was horrible. Butts in the air a plently. I need to have a trainer work with me on my form before I attempt them, which is what I did before attempting a girly one last week. I will work up to full ones, probably at home, since wall push ups aren't 'allowed' at the gym.

emoticon I got some assignment marks back today! One B and a B+. AND another assignment I don't know the mark for but I know for sure that I didn't fail. Talk about your confidence boost!

emoticon I finished an assignment last night. YAY! I have 2 more to finish in 10 days. BOO!!

emoticon I got my details for my placement, which is in 3 weeks. I am very happy with the area and the school that I was placed with :D

    I'm not totally positive what a "girly" pushup is, but I know that even with "do a pushup" as my goal for the past 3 months, I still can only lower myself about halfway to the floor - can't get all the way down, with my nose touching the carpet. Grrrr.

    Hooray for meeting the pushups goal!

Great job on your assignment marks!

I have to ask...what does getting your placement mean? Is this where you'll be a student teacher? Yeah, I'm a little daft! LOL

Tornado!

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Scary, scary stuff. I know people who work at that mall and I had lunch there 2 hours earlier! In picture 13 you will see a 4 story building that has a blue ANZ logo on it. We had lunch there. Scary stuff!!!

    How often do tornados occur in New Zealand? The weather is really getting crazy all over.

    SCARY for sure! I'm glad you were long gone when it hit, and hope that no one was seriously injured.

Are tornadoes a common occurrence there?

    Great goals! I'm glad to read the comment from Daracox on progressing with push ups because I'm still trying to do one toe push up a year later. Grrrr!

    Sounds like great goals! As a trainer, can I give you some advice on accomplishing the push up goal? Girly style pushups don't work your core like "real" push ups. If you want to build the strength more quickly you could start doing regular push ups against the wall, up on your toes. Then with your hands on a bench and then down to the floor. The position is more similar to an actual pushup and you will be surprised how quickly you get stronger. I've had clients who can't do one regular push up start against the wall and I have them doing 10 full real pushups in 6-8 weeks.

Feeling very spacey

Sunday, May 01, 2011

I need a good nights sleep. Stat. Last night Russell was having some weird dreams and kept waking me up through the night. Once he tapped me, another time I woke up and his head was on my chest and another time I woke up to his hand on my breastage. Each time he was asleep and when I woke up and spoke to him he muttered and rolled over. So very annoying. Then my dad turned on the TV in the lounge in the middle of the night, and that woke me up too. It is amazing how much my day is affected by being woken up so many times. I am feeling sleepy, and slow and spacey. Ick.

I need to get some of my assignment done tonight. I'm hoping that I will perk up once I have some dinner. I have chocolate as my study aide, and tonight I'm not afraid to use it!

In other news, my scale has gone up a kilo. I'm hoping it is a bit of sodium and a bit of strength training gain. No idea what it is, really, since I have been good and been working out. I'm not letting it bother me, but I have noted it.

In other news, I have a busy week. Work, uni, assignments and the gym! Story of my life. I'm so ready to be done with studying!!!

    I hate when my sleep is messed up. I hope you get some good sleep to make up for it.

Don't fret the small gain on the scale. It will be gone soon with how on fire you are!

Have a good week! Remember to breathe and take care of yourself during all your busy-ness!
