Planning out my week

How is this not a plan? I have a few trips to the Central Coast and Sydney for appointments, Lady Gaga, and the Good Food and Wine Show… and maybe even seeing Ms Glowless to boot :) Do some running and bootcamp in there, then fly to Hobart for the Speech Pathology Australia conference, armed with gloves, hats and scarves, and running shoes, to find my speechie mojo and to see the lovely Foale ladies :)

My someday has come

seven days

Ow ow ow. So sore in the quads and abs and SOMEWHERE in my arms from my first Bootcamp session yesterday morning!

Yes. So I’ve started Bootcamp at the same time I’m starting the Up and Running 10k program. Progress, they say.

Looks like my running gear is coming to Hobart next week and Canberra the week after. It’s gonna be cold!

Bring on 30.

(I also started my Speech Pathology blog this week. Finally. It’s currently getting some of my relevant posts here republished over there but new content will be upon us soon!)

It’s All About Me (diet and exercise journal)

Diet and Exercise Journal

Excited because my new It’s all about me journal came :) I had a couple of these and used them well to keep myself on track a couple of years ago, and this will totally help me to get back into it!

Always nice to be accountable in some way. I’ll have this November/December/January period to get myself back into recording (not that there’s any guarantee of good habits, but recording it is a start!!) before the new year really kicks in.

I love how it has places to track weights and cardio worksouts, along with abdominals in its own space! (Better do them then!!), which is much better than many journals that only let you track food and calories. It also has “check ins” every 2 weeks.

(for the boys, or for those who prefer discreter than red (it used to be bright pink!), there’s also a black journal available)

I also signed up for two sessions of bootcamp a week for the next 7 weeks in the lead up til Xmas. That, and being inspired by healthy green apples on my blog layout (yes, click through if you haven’t already) instead of cupcakes and things I can’t actually eat will set me on the right track!

10 minutes of HELL


Bootcamp this morning was short but fun. A one-on-one session, because noone else was there!

After the warm-up, I did –

15 box jumps (up and down off a foot high step)
20 jumping pullups (from hanging to pulled up)
30 situps
?600m run
30 situps
20 jumping pullups
15 box jumps

New stuff in there for me. And I nearly died. But I pushed through, and got ten minutes flat.

2 weeks off now, due to holidays and long weekends.

Better get a run or two in while I’m in Brissie, hey?

(it looks like we’re getting a team together at work for Train for the Brain fun run in November)

An Out

Got the very tempting reminders that the Uni census date for this semester is this Friday, and if I withdraw from a subject before then I won’t have to pay, nor will they record the withdrawal on my record.

In better news, bootcamp this morning was awesome.

5 rounds of for your fastest time of
– 400m run
– 20 situps
– 10 deadlifts.

Was wiped but pumped by the end (20 mins 49 sec).

What a good way to start the week!
