Congrats to Rae!!

A big congratulations to Rae for winning her comp!!! Woohoo well done girl, you deserve every success!! Rae was such a big inspiration to me when I started on my own fitness journey - awesome job!

This weekend has gone so fast! I'm pleased to say that I've had a fantastic week this week. I had my free meal last night. Have to say though, I certainly didn't enjoy my meal that much... its always the same, I build up the free meal, get excited about it, and then I end up not enjoying it that much.

The wine was yum though.... one and a half glasses! After two sips I could feel the alcohol coursing through my muscles, hehehe I'm such a cheap drunk!

But today after my spurge meal, my weight has gone up one whole kilo. Why does one free meal make my scale weight go up so much?

Not been sleeping too well this week... well I had about 4 hours on Wednesday night, so when the alarm went off I dragged my sorry arse out of bed and went and did a less than energetic leg workout. Hmmmm - doing legs when I'm tired always makes me feel nervous, my strength is depleted, my motivation is depleted, so I'm always scared to lift heavy. So sadly I didn't leave the gym with jelly legs, but my butt and hamstrings were sore on Friday, so I must have done something right.

I made up for the sleep on Friday night though - 10 hours - heavenly! It was just the best sleep ever. If only I could have that every night. I average about 5 hours a night. Not really enough I know.

No walking this weekend, we've been too busy unfortunately. I have done all my housework, groceries, my cooking for the week is done, plus all the washing and ironing is done, dog food is chopped, so all I need to do now is to start preparing tonights dinner and prepare my gym diary for next weeks workouts, and I'm all done!

Here's to another fantastic week!

Hi Hilary :-)
Lacking sleep can have the worst effects on your body and mind. I went through a period of finding it hard to sleep at night but then i got my exercise bike, I exercise in the evenings now and it has been knocking me out for a good nights sleep.
I hope its a passing phase and you sleep well soon.

Hey, I went and bought that mag New you, that you were in! Good job, you must be so proud of yourself!

Hilary said...

Em - I hate leg day too - I'm sure its just a psychological thing though... enjoy your cookup on Wednesday!

Thanks Tracey and Jeh - its not a bad pic of me and the dogs. I am quite happy to get a second minute of fame in another magazine!

Hi Splice - sleep is something that I do go through phases with, like you. I think its mostly because as soon as I lay down I start thinking about the issues of the day! Need to work on that!
