Its chilly in Melbourne!!
A whole bunch of us from my company from all over Australia arrived at Melbourne airport on Sunday night – it was like a big reunion!! I got up this morning to get to the hotel gym for 5.30am… managed to fit in half an hour of cardio to start the day – woohoo!. Had to be at the office by 7am (and its still DARK at 7am – What the…!?)
Finished work at about 5.30pm (a long day for me!! – eyes hanging out of my head. Lol!), headed back to the hotel, got changed ready for a weights workout… got to the gym… all the lights are out and theres a sign out the front saying “THIS AREA CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE”. Again – What the… ?!!! So the hotel manager says they’ve had a whole bunch of power blow in the gym today. Definetely wont be fixed until tomorrow evening, at the earliest. Grrrrrrrrrrr
So, all dressed up and no-where to work out! Headed back to my room to do push ups and sit ups. Oh well – its better than nothing I guess. I’m quite chuffed with myself too that I managed to do 4 sets of ‘mens’ push ups, 1x15, 1x13, 1x10 and 1x9 reps. I had no idea I could do that many, so I’m quite pleased with that!!
Because the gym wont be open in the morning, I get a sleep-in tomorrow. Dont have to get up til 6am!! ha - not much of a sleep in!
AND… I’ve been so good today with food and water! Normally when its cold I don’t want to drink so much water because I want to avoid the COLD TOILET SEAT!! Hehehee – but I am making myself drink it – don’t want to wind up dehydrated. I’ve brought my oats with me for breakfast, and I’ve got my protein powder for shakes, rice cakes, protein bars… lunches are salads with beef or chicken.
Thats about it so far - I'm missing home and my lovely boy, dogs, cat, electric blanket etc, but I'm sure this week will fly and I will be home before I know it.
Time to go read some blogs!
