February 1st 2013 update
Crikey O’Reilly where does the time go?!
Sometimes life just seems to ebb away on a tide of inconsequential nonsense—i wish i had one of those alpha personalities like Richard Branson, Bill Gates or a multitude of others, but unfortunately i`m naturally a bone-idle dreamer!
So what’s new?
Well christmas Eve saw me complete the Beachbody.com Insanity 60 Day Challenge, fully and without missing a day. So quite pleased with that. I didn’t turn into a young, black American with washboard abs high-fiving everything in sight, so not pleased abou that… :P Seriously though i know all that marketing stuff is utter rubbish, but it did give me some ideas for my clients, gave me a set challenge to complete and did wonders for my aerobic fitness.
Consequently as of 04/02/2013 i`ve done sod all exercise in comparison!
Oh hang on, i know do Krav on a friday night too, which mainly consists of an hour and a half of getting my face rearranged in the extremely physical sparring. I`ve come away with some painful wounds, but i still keep going like a silly arse… I`m getting to the stage now where i think if i never use it i`ll be a bit pig sick! Sod’s law says i’ll get my arse kicked as well :P
Still P3 grading booked for end of March, just my Brother’s wedding in Sydney to go first! Flying out for a week and a half without my family, which i`m not pleased about but the costs were just horrendous and would have crippled us.
And Christmas? Well i managed to gain half a stone.
Seriously, i thought i`d eaten baby jebus. So where did it come from? Fat? nope, that would have been physiologically impossible. I`d have had to be doing Mr. Creosote impressions every day for 2 weeks.
What it was was all the shite i was eating partially reinflating the existing fat cells—retention if you like.
So what did i do? Cut the carbs, skipped breakfast and hey presto all gone, no harm done. Come February 1st i’d dropped back under 13 st again, just in time for beach wear in sydney—if it wasn’t for the unsightly skin that is a result of too much weight :( Oh well, it could have been worse!
So when i get back from my beloved Australia, i`m looking at starting up the next early morning challenge, probably Les Mills Combat, then i’ll hit the weights once Spring is here.
Also looking forward to training my clients away from the carpark now that the nights are getting darker later.
And i`m waiting to see if i get on a Univeristy course too…more on that later :)
