Yum i just had ravioli carbonara and garlic bread for dinner! Todays my high calorie day and that was delishus. This morning i burnt over 900 calories at the gym (thats huge for me!) i did about 50 minutes on the treadmill..a PT session of resistance work and then a 60 minute body balance class. Today i did 55 kilos on the LAT pull down and also on the leg press...and 45 kilos on the chest press!!! GO ME!!! Fiona is super impressed with the weights im doing for my upper body. She was telling me today she went to a workshop yesterday about stretching etc she is just waiting for the gym to buy some new equipment and then pretty much the stretching at the end of each session will stop. She basically told me...stretching for me is pointless anyway lol...i am VERY flexible to the point fiona said i am verging on being hyper mobile. I notice it in classes too...these skinny lil girls and we are say...cross legged and having to bend at the hips aiming our chest to the floor...i go a long way down but these skinny girls barely move lol...cant imagine how close ill get to the floor once i lose my stomach! LOL Anyway they are going to be buying rollers and balls etc...and fiona will figure out my trigger points...with the rollers etc and it will be something that we will build a routine of so i can do on my own too.
Tonite i tried on a top...i bought it late last year...got it from Asia LOL china i think off ebay....gorgeous dressy top...in like a saphire blue colour...it barely fitted me at the bust and had no chance across my hips/stomach...well it now fits! We have the ww dinner at the end of august...so i may even venture and buy a black skirt to wear with it...wow im turning into a lady! And speaking of turning into a lady...i mentioned a few weeks ago about what reward i will have for reaching 100 kilos.(or getting under to be exact) ive thought and thought about this...and come up with it ;) Firstly...i wear basically no jewellery apart from my heart rate monitor...no necklace...no bracelet...no ring (havent worn a ring since i gave ang back hers!) well i dont want a ring or bracelet cos it would be too easy to get caught on something at the gym...so i am thinking of a necklace with a significant pendant...something that signafies my new life at under 100 kilos and the next step in the journey....not sure of the pendant tho...i did think of a butterfly pendant....not sure of any other real symbol that mite mean new beginnings or freedom or happiness? The second part of the reward...is a trip away....the last time i went away apart from streaky bay to visit my sister and her family...was about 6 years ago...was a few months after i broke up with ang...and i was miserable...i went to sydney...had a awful time...had to ask for a extension for my belt on the plane...i even changed my flight home to a earlier time cos i was so miserable. Sydney has always been significant for me....as i lived there from 7 years to a few weeks before my 15th before....i love the harbor bridge and circular quay and am even tempted to think about doing the harbor bridge climb? Anyway i think it would get a voodoo off my back...hopefully no extension belt...a nice relaxing time...strolling around circular quay...and living up to that goal of never getting on a plane again till i got under 100 kilos...im thinking of booking it for december 10...i figure even if i am not under 100 kilos at that point i would be very close to it!
I just watched a really good documentary called "processed people" check out www.processedpeople.com ive seen a few of these docos now...and find them fascinating and just ingrain in me more and more how i dont want processed crap in my life...another good one was Food Inc...they are american docos and based on the american food industry and our industries arent as bad as theirs (i dont think) but it is still very eye opening
Hope everyone has a good saturday night!
