Bits and bobs

Yesterday BFLer Amanda dropped in for lunch. This may not seem like big news.... but I live in Melbourne and she lives in Canberra. And she came down just for the day - to look at a bike. Keen, or crazy? You be the judge.

She bought the bike - it's shiny, and pretty colours (both important factors to consider, of course) and then we sat in the sun and had lunch and chatted. I even cooked. Now that IS big news!

*****************

I did my new leg workout on Friday and GOD! Yesterday I was hobbling around like an old lady. It didn't seem like much of a change - the only differences are the addition of dumbbell squats and the removal of the one-legged leg press. Oh, and one extra set of everything - maybe that's what did it?

Yesterday was back and biceps, and I'm not really feeling it. Better up the weights next time.

Today I was planning a bike ride, but I'm not feeling very enthusiastic this morning, I'm just too tired. I think I'll substitute a walk instead. My current cardio program isn't a big ask - just 2 bike interval sessions and either a walk or a bike ride each week. With strict instructions not to go hard on the cycling, OR spend more than an hour in the saddle. I suppose that means I won't be doing my usual competitive "MUST overtake that guy up ahead" thing....

All in a good cause - I've gotta build me some more muscle. At least I can see the results of my efforts over the past year. My shoulders have really gained some width and my quads are coming along nicely. Still working on my lats though, I seem to make sloooooooow progress there.

What IS your workout program at the moment Kek? I'd be interested to see it, and you nutrition plan. When do you start with the fatloss phase?

Oh Yeah, I've got weights this morning. Then cardio.... and I'm already tired just thinking about it!

Sara, I was wondering the same thing myself...
