Today is a rest day , wrote up my workouts and food in my diary, made tommorrows lunch, shakes etc. Just packed my bag for work and gym, will head to the library later to return some books and Cds.
Took a friend to my gym yesterday to help her out, was trying to get her to commit to going gym 3 times a week at work and maybe the weekend once, also trying to help her make better food choices but the girl likes to socialise!!
also she said the funniest thing to me i had my VBB tank on and she said don;t you get bored of egg whites for breakfast?! I said re-read the top i'm wearing lol she took a minute to understand what i meant!!
I will be started a personal training course at the end of the month as i just love helping people but i find my biggest challenge is people not being as motivated or passionate as me but if i can help them make positive changes in their life thats something!

Food changes for this week-

Now down to 1/4 cup oats pre & post Workout i was at a 1/3
Meals 3 & 4 Sweet potato reduced to 40g
Also i ran out of balsamic vinegar and i usually add to meals 3&4 just 1 tablespoon forgot to buy some so took it out will be using lime?lemon squeezed over with a hint of mrs.dash seasoning plus i add cucumber and tomatoes to my salad but i de-seed them so i use that the make cucumber/tomato salsa with blend them up with extra spicy mrs dash and add 1 teaspoon to my salads.

Side lateral raises 17.5/6 17.5/6

Bent over lateral raises 20/6 20/6

Shrugs 70/6 70/6

Mass machine cardio distance 7.24 best distance of the week, i closed my eyes and listened to Anthony Robbins talking how we associate certain things in life and i was associating cardio with the feelings of looking great, achieving my goals, winning the challenge this kept me pushing all the way through!

I felt a little bit irritable when i woke up this morning and annoyed at nothing in particular, seemed to have gone after cardio. But my body feels a bit worn got to keep on keeping on!

I feel more energised today than yesterday , i felt like a zombie all day i nodded off early but was awake for a bit before i fell back asleep.

Mass machine cardio distance 7.18

was a great cardio session, my record is 7.30 not far off i had music on today , had a great stretch afterwards and felt so much energy on my way home got to do some food prep then off to chiro at 10.30 and shops on the way back for some essentials.

I don;t know if its in my mind but i seem to be feeling my pre-workout more than ever this past 2 weeks.
