Getting my caps and traps ready for the weekend!


First things first – I washed my hair last night! Now my hair is all fluffy because I didn't straighten it.  But I can deal with that.  I also parted it on the other side today and am wondering if anyone is going to notice it.  No one has so far, but it is still pretty early in the day.  I kinda feel like I am going through an identity crisis when I part my hair differently.

Also, I saw this in the tattoo shop that I went to recently.  Thought it was good for a laugh! 

So, today I took a break from the high intensity circuit workouts I have been doing.  I felt the need for a shoulder burn and some specific strength exercises.  I love the upper body circuit I have been doing, but really want to still focus on building great shoulders for summer.  Being Australian and all, we love tank tops and cutting the sleeves off t shirts.  This means I need great shoulder caps and traps! Glamour muscles baby :)

Also, I have checked on three different websites today and it is supposed to be 17 deg on Sunday.  I am clearing my schedule and laying in the sun for as long as possible.

Just thinking about what I am going to train tomorrow.  I might go for a run in the morning and then do some more legs at lunch time or after work, If I am not too sore from yesterday’s lower body workout.
