Well it was an interesting renovating weekend. By Friday evening I couldn't use the kitchen, so meals were either makeshift, or the dreaded takeaway. By Saturday we were knee deep in floor sanding, puttying and vacuuming (actually I mostly supervised... lol!!) Developed a tickle in my throat and a chesty cough from inhaling all that sawdust, not fun!
We got this fabulous satin-finish floor paint that is water-based, it only took 3 hours to dry between coats, and had no noxious smell. So Connor the cat stayed home, locked up in one of the bedrooms for 3 hour spurts, with everything a cat could need... bed, litter, food, water, toys! Much better than having to relocate him (and us) for a few days. Anyway, by Sunday lunchtime we had all the coats done and all the furniture back in place - it looks like a new house!! I love the lighter colour of the floor now - not bad for a day and a halfs work!
Yesterday I had to drive to Murwillumbah in northern NSW for work - what a long tiring drive that was! Took about an hour and 15 minutes each way, of straight highway driving = a very long day! So didn't get to train yesterday because I had to leave home so early. Did a pretty good cardio session this morning though.
Today I decided to start using Fitday again, havent used it in over a year, but I think I need it to focus on my daily nutrition. Its surprising how many calories you consume when you dont pay close attention to what you're eating. Anyway, today I've pulled it in at 1720 calories, 20% fat, 45% carbs and 35% protein. Didnt realise I was eating so many carbs!! Gonna have to watch that I think.
2 more days of work and then I have 4 days off - woohoo!! Really cant wait to get to Melbourne on Friday... although the 4am start isn't going to be very nice!
Happy training everyone!
