Well Monday was such an challenge... I took the plunge and got ready for work at gym. Phew what an event! I never knew you had to be so organised to achieve this - now I have a great appreciation for everyone who gets ready at gym every day!
So I thought I was super organised but I still managed to forget something. I dont know why that is... you know how often I have to travel for work, well you'd think I'd be used to packing everything by now - but no... Hil has to forget something doesn't she? On Monday I forgot to take a COMB for goodness sake. Luckily I had one in my handbag, which was in my car. So I left the gym totally blowdried and totally dishevelled, but I was able to rectify that once I reached the car.
So I'm going to do this 3 days per week, just while I'm commuting down to northern NSW every day. Gives me a little more time for cardio after weights, and not rushing so much. The other two days I will still come home and get ready. I just cant be that organised for 5 days in a row!!!! This morning was a much better experience - I didnt forget anything for once!! I have to say that I do not like using public/gym showers though. *shudder*
I baked up a big batch of homemade protein bars on the weekend - just used a Tom Venuto recipe that I got from somewhere. They turned out pretty nice, so I'm able to eat one while driving to work. Its basically just oats, banana, egg white and chocolate protein powder. Tastes good though :-)
Have had a great week of training so far. PB's on deadlifts, and today I worked my biceps so hard that I could barely make 6 reps on the last few sets. Just need to keep the energy up for the rest of the week. I have to make sure I get to bed early each night otherwise I'm going to be cactus by Friday!
