Failed to wake for walkies after the late night, but diet spot on and did start back on the weights at the gym, trying a little PHA routine to warm me back into things (PeripheralHeartAction – Doing upper body excercise followed by a lower body exercise to get blood pumping/flowing hard):

20 reps SuperSets x3sets:

15kg barbell squat with 15kg barbell incline chest press

30kg lat pull down with 10kg DBs SLDL

1x20reps 20kg kettlebell sumo squats



Great walkies tonight, 50mins! To make up for missing Mon am. Out this am too.

Tried a cple of other podcasts, some Canadian Dean Dwyer, make shift happen, OMFG he’s annoying! & he thinks he’s soOo clever with the title! Gillian Michaels, was quite hopeful of his one, but man she’s negative, not necessarily in what she says although she did gripe abit, but the tone of her voice, she’s bitter!

So bak to 5* 😉

Ms FlickFit is happy to give me a potato replacement for bread for w/e breakiis, yay! I love bread but not without butter & with mainly egg whites, will work much better with potatoes! 🙂

Doah! Just looked at plan again, I can have quark on a w/e pm! YaY! 🙂

Had a loverley soak in hot-tub tonight, bit tight after 1st weights.


VERY sore today! Avoiding the foam roller, it hurts enough even when I don’t! Totally slept in too after hot-tub, so missed walkies, but not too worried as plan to start 5.30pm spin on a Thurs for cardio and that’ll make up for missed walk, not gonna make a habit of it though.

NOT looking forward to weights, but sat thinking at work scanning (VERY boring job!) about after comp and the lady at Magnet (when we were looking at kitchens) commenting on my legs, how fabby and toned they were and that you could tell I trained… I want those legs back!… So I guess I’ll be sucking it up at the gym tonight then! Feels good to be back on weights tho, just very wrong that I’m soOo fat, I don’t like how my movement’s restricted cos of my fat suit it’s fecking annoying! I didn’t mind when lighter, cos I’m strong and enjoy intimidating young lads by lifting heavier than them! 😉

Thing is when I lose weight, people don’t recognise me, so they just think it’s someone new not hey that fat lady’s done awesome! (as wardrobe changes too!)

Ended up being a great session tonight! Nowhere near as bad as I feared once I warmed up. Sods law gorgeous pm when I’m due in gym, nearly swapped for a walk, but I was really looking forward to my baked potato, so gym it was! 🙂

SuperSets 20reps X3sets:

Static Lunges – just my fat ass, 15 each leg (left quad ridiculously tight!?!)


Incline DB Chest Press: 8kg, 10kg, 10kg (up for 2 count, hard squeeze, down for 4 count)


SLDL: 8kg (was scared to do 10s as soOo sore, 8s hit the spot nicely, better form)


WideGripPullUps: assisted-70kg, was squeezing hard, lots of weight to keep form, but was working hard)



Phew! Spin was tough but great fun!

Walkies this am too. Very attractive picture posted on FB LoL, but I’m proud of my efforts in last chance WO! 😉

Had a low moment this arvo, but feel better & hubby’s home.


GREAT walkies this am, tried my playlist from prep and I just kept up with it! Couldn’t get anywhere near 2 weeks ago, so def progress.

Was really pumping my arms with my little 1.5kg hand weights, had quite a sweat on, LOVE it! 🙂

Gym tonight for another circuit and then BAKED POTATO! 🙂


Have a great w/e everyone!



1st Weekend/CarbUp

Mixed feeling about the w/e
Felt abit weird eating soOo many carbs and I missed exercising!
Bitova double whammy, eating more and exercising less!
Didn’t feel bloated at all but ‘visits’ were NOT good  Mayb the toast I was allowed for breakii?
May try the oat breakii option instead next w/e and see. Just I try to have a little whey as poss, as too much defo disagrees with me, will email flick in a mo
Cheat Sat PM was nice, some nommy BBQ type products frm M&S; ribs, steak kebabs with pine nut pasta & their delish fragrant salad pot, expensive but has flowers in! I also had half an avocado as wasn’t on plan for Sun at all.
Really missed my bedtime quark, so gonna add that request to email to see if that can be an option for w/e too.
Sun was such a loverley PM we popped out for a drive. I was due a meal in 30mins, but was only an hours round trip, and chkn n rice was ready for nomming on my return
AaaRrrGggHhh! Disaster! There was an incident on opposite carriage way on way out, at least we weren’t stuck in traffic or involved, but traffic was building up, so Mark wisely decided he should feed me somewhere, else suffer with a crazii hungry wife stuck in traffic, LoL! So we stopped at just saw the signs, didn’t know it was there! Fabulous! So we had calvery and I was able to stick to plan having plain meat with boiled potatoes+veg, perfect!
Didn’t get back till 9.30, luckily weeks plan doesn’t take much prep.

Mon failed to wake for walkies after the late night

YaY! Ms FlickFit is happy to give me a potato replacement for bread for w/e breakiis! I love bread but not without butter & with mainly egg whites  work much better with potatoes!
Doah!  Just looked at plan again, I can have quark in a w/e pm! YaY!

Coping fine with the low carbs thru day, not hungry at all, thank you Ms FlickFit
Gym was tough, only a 20min TRX circuit but I pushed hard and was sweating!
3xs thru:
Squat x20 reps (narrow stance, wider, wide)
Chest press x20 reps
ReverseLunges x10 reps each leg (really low/long, LOVE these)
Row x20 reps
Did 1.7 mile walk in the am too. Listening to the smarter science of slim podcasts (will do a blog on these also), bit slow, but really enjoying them


Bit hungry this arvo, had 4pm meal at 3.30 & was worried I’d b ravenous by dinner but I was ok actually.
1.7m walkies this am & tonight, mark joined me tonight, was nice, helped as I’m quite tight in quads and lower back tonight. Walk and good hot tub soak have really helped though 🙂
Taking advantage of relaxed office environment too and doing some foam rollaring in the boardroom of a lunchtime if free! I never find the time otherwise and figured I don’t take my lunch often so this’ll get me away from my desk for a break and help my training/recovery too, win,win.


Very good day today!
Walkies this am, plus cycled to/frm work as time trials in the area & traffic could have been a complete mare, didn’t look too bad actually, but extra cardio makes up for unauthorised carbs last night, ish (carbs only on WO pm’s) oops!
Thought gym wud b quite painful, but in the zone, endorphins flowing, was great! Sweating a LOT! Same TRX routine as Mon, really focusing on keeping core tight throughout.
Was very thirsty today, & abit hungry, but fatso’s stomach has to shrink a little! Had drunk 2L water by 1pm!?! Only drank another half in arvo & then half at gym tonight.
Looking forward to b pre-bed cheesecake! Well it tastes like it to me!


Mark sold the Corrado (VR6) last night
VERY sad to see it go, but it seems to have gone to a good home and he has got a rather fabulous new toy on the drive to polish 😉 so onwards & upwards.
Another good day. Walkies this am. REALLY enjoying listening to my SmaterScience of Slim podcasts. They can a bit slow & repetitive but that suits me as I’m not used to audio chat. There’s a British woman in the discussions & her British humour saves it somewhat. The way the info’s put across is just really working for me, making me think, all good!
Still quite thirsty today, more so this arvo?
Not as hungry.
Foam rollaring at lunchtime, great! OweEe!
Walkies tonight, tough.


So far so good.

Walkies this am. Car’s in garage so have to pik that up after work, which will not motivate me to gym being later in, but I will go, I want my carbs for dinner! And it’s only 20mins eh!?

Got my carb-up plans from Ms FlickFit, CARBTASTIC!

Will update you prob Sun pm or Mon

Have a great w/e everyone!
