I know I was gonna leave it a week but I cant help it, I just feel like writing something. Not particularly sure what I will write but I am sure I will think of something.
Yesterday at Uni was good, the tutor that was a complete a**e last time was actually quite reasonable. Not sure whether our other tutors had said anything to him but he was quite quiet when he first came in but then settled and all went well. Fingers crossed it stays that way!
We also went to the gym last night and I did chest and back. I felt good on the bench press and one of the other lads that was working out commented on the amount of weight I was pressing (65kg) which was actually really nice, then another bloke who has only just started said he felt embarrassed to do his after I had done mine. I said he was silly and we all have to start somewhere, which eased him a bit!
I do love the feeling I get when other people comment on my strength
When finished on the bench I did some incline flies which I have not done for a while so these really hit my chest hard, only 7.5kg in each hand but doing slowly and controlled and with good form (too easy to get wrong). I then did lat pull downs, wide and close grip and then some back extensions. I really would like to actually work hard on my lats as I just can not feel them and I would like to be able to at least make it easier to contract them when working out! Just gotta keep going I suppose...
My back is strong but I am concious that we do not really do that many isolation exercises for each muscle group on the back. I am also going to start doing some cable rows too!
As a result of doing that lot my chest and back are aching like anything, it feels good though, proof that I actually did something!
Today has been an easy going day, my other half worked late last night so I stayed up and consequently did not venture out of bed until 10:30 this morning! lol We popped into town for an hour to get a few bits and then came back, I have been doing some work as have got tomorrow off too, although need to go for my follow up immunisations.
We are thinking of going on holiday over Christmas and would really like to go somewhere warm, like Goa. Never been anywhere like that so it would be good! I would however, like to go to California as we are on about moving out there in about 5 years so would be good to have a look around and see what is there, sun sea and sand. Hopefully I will be slightly fitter and smaller by then!!!
My eating has been awful this week, I have been managing my protein drinks and breakfast but am struggling with all the pasta still for lunch. I actually had a jacket potato and been yesterday and as we did not get up till so late my calorie intake for today is way low, although I have just had some chicken.
Only Saturday will tell, I feel good in myself and I do not feel as bloated now! Fingers crossed it has passed.
My other half told me this morning that I am getting my arse back now, which is great as he really likes it!
I am going to get myself some really nice jeans when I get to goal so that I look really sexy in them! Ha ha.
I also asked my other half if once we are both at our goals that we can go to a photo shoot and have some couples photos taken for us. I think it would be really nice! We were talking today about what it is going to be like when I get down to my weight and what I would like to do. I am going to go to a sports shop in the summer and buy some workout shorts (hotpants) and wear them around town with a sports top on and relish in the attention. That probably sounds really vain but I really do get a warm fuzzy feeling when I think about it, because I am going to look damn good and I want to celebrate and share my new body! Do you think that is really vain??? I have also promised myself a boob job once sorted, get rid of the saggyness and make them firmer for my posing suit!
Anyway, I think I am going to have to write on an as and when basis as it actually really helps me and also keeps provides a positive perspective for me. I can get all my negativity out of me here and let go of it. Plus all the comments I get really help!
Night night all...
