I *heart* the postman

OK, so it was actually a postwoman, but today she brought me parcels. I LOVE getting parcels in the mail. It's way more fun than the usual assortment of bank statements, bills and junk mail.

So, internet shopping - how good is it? You click a few times on a website, enter your husband's credit card number, and they send you stuff! Cool. Today I got a box of goodies from Evelyn Faye Nutrition, including a new big tub of Ladybird Protein Crunch. Now I can make my choc-cheesecake thing again.

Coincidentally, I was training a client this morning at the skanky gym, when I ran into Helen, the lovely sales rep for Ladybird/Redbak. I seem to meet her all over the place. Probably because it's her job to BE all over the place. It's always a pleasure to see her anyway, she's a sweetheart. :-)

Oh, and the postie also brought me a fab book entitled Play as if Your Life Depends on It. Sara put me onto the Go Animal website a while back, and recently I've been using some of their ideas with my clients - it's so much fun! The idea is to make training functional and fun, turn it into a game so that clients barely even notice that they're getting a workout. Click on the 'Games' link for some really great ideas to make your training something to be enjoyed, not just endured.

Wow, I just had a quick look at the link and the Go Animal site looks great...will go and read thru it properly in a minute

I was so excited when my city health package arrived last week.

Thanks for your message about the caffeine too....I thought I had to get caffeine out of my body for 5 days before starting creatine and also during taking it??? do you know of any good links Kek where I can actually read what to do when taking creatine? I was going on my husbands advice as he takes it but if I can save giving up coffee I will be a happy girl!

Do you have a particular brand of L-Glutamine you would recommend?

Sharon, I'll email you.... remind me if you don't hear from me tomorrow, will you? I have a busy day....

Crossfit ROCKS. Although some of those workouts scare the crap out of me. <=O
