May Goals AND an amazing story (you lucky things!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I had a fantastic April. Lets hope it becomes a trend!

Weight goal: Lose a kilo. That seems achievable and would bring me to 78.6kg.

Nutrition: Iím still focusing on getting in more fruit and veg and less junk. I am also going to start tracking more often. Lets aim for 3 days per week!

Water: I drink heaps of water, this one is fine!.

Exercise: Run my first 5k!

Exercise #2: Start my new weights program. I met with my trainer last night and pretty much told him to give me a mans program. I told him I wanted to try high weight, low reps, and he was really excited to get started. Apparently I am the first woman to ever ask him for a program like that!

Thats it, pretty simple!

And for fun, a 4 month progress pic!



NOW for my amazing story!

OK, so my dads car was stolen from outside our house at 5am on Sunday morning. He woke up when the engine started and looked out the window to see the car driving away. It is at this point that I should point out that the car was unlocked, with the keys in it. Yeah, we did that waaaay too often. Of course he called the police right away, but where we live is very close to a motorway, so the car could have been anywhere.

This morning, I decided to go a different way to work. My usual route was backed up with traffic, so I ducked around the back way and down some side streets, which is quicker when the traffic was bad. AND wouldn't you know it, I FOUND THE CAR! Parked on the side of the road! I owned the car for 4 years before my dad bought it off me, so I know that car. I called the police right away to tell them I found it and asked them to send someone. Then mum came to wait for the police because I had to get to work. We think that the theives dumped the car when they realised there was no petrol in it and they wouldn't get far without a petrol station (and those have security cameras).

How cool is that?!

    " told him I wanted to try high weight, low reps"

    way to go!.. You'll find it gets quicker results and you feel better.. I dread the day that women find out how effective heavy weight s are for making you look good and lose weight. It means I'll be fighting for turns on the squat rack ;(
