Well, I had better get my butt into gear and give an update before I am sitting at my computer on Friday evening wondering where the week went and another lot of time flies by without a post.
I had a lovely weekend, but didn’t get to Mum’s. Will be organising this weekend around going though as I really need to. I did however, have an awesome night out with the girls and Si. I also got a tour of the cubby house, swing set, electric car and bike by Miss Sierra while Michelle was getting ready. It was very cute and I thoroughly enjoyed it!! As for the rest of the night, what a wonderful way to spend a balmy summer’s evening… at a restaurant on the beach with wonderful friends. It’s times like that you certainly find yourself counting your blessings!!
I am loving Bikram yoga and will be signing up to go along to regular classes. The heat really does allow me to stretch further and believe me, I need all the stretching help I can get!! I was telling Coach earlier this week that it has really helped me to discover where my body’s shortcomings are, such as my shoulder joints being too tight to bring my arms behind my ears when they are clasped together overhead, my right hip joint is far less flexible than my right, my neck has limited range of movement both backwards and forwards and I am almost too scared to do the backward bending poses where you drop your head back because if I do it too quickly instead of testing it as I go down, my neck really hurts, as in shooting pain kind of hurts through my traps. I think that learning about my body and where it needs to improve is one of the highlights of yoga for me… well besides the 90 mins of a pure stretching workout. It’s definitely a workout and not just a stretch, that’s for sure!!
I am also really enjoying my new program from coach. It is really challenging, as are all his programs. And this is the way it should be. There would be something very wrong if I received a new program and it was easier than the one I’ve just done!! I’ve just had to send my current diet and supplement regime off to coach as he has requested it so he knows what I am doing with regards to that.
The kittens are still making me laugh daily, although not so much last night. After eating and showering after Bikram, the exhaustion had seeped into my bones. I chose to leave my bedroom door open as I thought I was so tired it wouldn’t matter if they were in my room because I’d be dead to the world and wouldn’t hear them. WRONG!! King decided it was behind my vertical blinds that he wanted to climb the fly screen. So you can imagine how quiet the rattling of the blinds and sound of a cat climbing, then dropping through the blinds to the floor was. Then Charu wanted to be on the bedside table and knocked everything off that. I shooed her off that only to have her attack my feet. Once that had all been sorted I flopped back down on my bed and was drifting off when there was a “snap, ping, snap, ping, snap, ping, etc.” King had found a hair elastic with a metal join on my iron bed post and was pulling at it, then letting it go where it would snap followed by the ping. It was at this point that both furry ratbags were scooped up, dumped on the outside of my room and the door shut in their faces. The last I saw of them were two little kittens with rather indignant looks on their faces!!
Anyway peoples, must dash as I’ve still got a couple of things to prepare for the day ahead tomorrow. All my food is in the fridge ready to go, just need to organise my gym gear.
Have a great night… eat well and train hard!
