The struggle that is Monday...


I hope everyone had a good weekend!  I did.  Saturday morning I went for a nice early run to start the day, then did some chores around the house.

I am loving how my stomach is starting to tone up a bit more.  Maybe it is the mirror or the lighting, I don't know, but I am pretty stoked at how things are starting to look.

Saturday night Michelle and I went to a friend’s birthday party, where the fancy dress theme was R.  We went as Roller Derby Girls!  It was such a comfortable and good costume to wear.  Sneakers, shorts and a shirt?  Easy!  Oh, we also watched “Whip It” before we got ready just to make sure we were in the mood.

Drinking is a dangerous sport - make sure you wear appropriate elbow, knee and wrist guards if you usually require supervision :)

Sunday was a bit of a write off with regards to my energy levels – but I did manage to make my lunches for the week and watch about 5 hours of TV.

Man, I really couldn't be bothered with working out today.  I stayed in bed for a little bit too long and ended up having to rush to the gym.  It’s funny, although I have plenty of time to get to the gym and workout, my brain tells me that if I get to the gym after 7.15am then I am late.

I worked on shoulders today and was actually surprised at how bearable the 20kg press was.  It would be so awesome if we had a rack at my gym, but we don’t, so I have to kind of clean the bar up to my chest, awkwardly sit down and get into the right position to complete the shoulder presses.  Then just as I am struggling with the last few reps, I basically have to drop the bar on my lap and then stand up and put it on the floor. LAME.  One day that’s not going to work too well and something is going to end up bruised.
