Offically Summer!

The clocks went back an hour this morning so that means it's summer time! This weekend, the weather has been great started off really cold and foggy but turned really warm and sunny, today wasn't as warm but slightly windy, still nice. I had my first workout with Steve and was great, had a good chest workout, looked really pumped, if only it stopped like that! Let's see how I feel tomorrow, hopefully will have that workout ache, then I know it has been a good workout.

I've been slowly turning my CD collection into MP3's and storing them on my external harddrive, do you realise how long it takes to convert into MP3's then scan the covers in? Guess I'm halfway through but it has given me chance to listen to stuff I haven't listened to for ages. I forgot how some albums are great and there's one or two that I wonder why did I buy them in the first place, also there's the ones that you bought as the singles off them were great to find out that they are the only good tracks on the CD!

In A Rut

I feel like I'm in a rut and I don't know what to do. All I seem to do is get up, go to work, come home and if not going to the gym, I go to bed. I can't wait for spring and the good sunny weather to get here so that I can go for a bike ride on an evening, or just not to feel so bloody cold! I've had a bit of a feeling down weekend, not like me but I guess we all feel like it sometimes!

Training is going well, I can see changes and I actually have abs and they are not disapearing either, I could see them through my shirt at the gym and that made me happy, all the hard work is paying off. Steve txt me to go training on Friday but to be honest I wanted to train by myself and told him I was busy to put him off, but hopefully we will start training again this week, I'll find out too what his plans are, to see if he is quitting or not! I've done 5 days at the gym but today I felt like I ran out of energy, I worked my shoulders and tried to do some ab work but the body said enough. I'm not at the gym tomorrow, well up to now I'm not as I want a day off unless we are training then I'll have Tuesday night off!

I really seem to have got the weight training bodybuilding bug, I bought another book and have dug out my other books and started to read them for any little bits of help I can find from them. Hopefully they will push me forward and guide me to the next level!

Missing My Training And The Trainer

Steve, my trainer was injured playing football on Saturday and I got a text off him as we were due to train on Sunday saying he had done his ankle in and couldn't walk on it. This was about 7am, I'd been awake listening to my iPod anyhow but was still surprised about it, I wasn't going for a ride as I was thinking about what had been said on Friday night about too much cardio. So I went to the gym later and had a good workout and text Steve the next day and he had been given crutches, so it sounds like he is out of action for a while. It may sound selfish, but I'm really missing his workouts and him pushing me, I am trying as hard as I can to try and have a good workout, but the results will show soon I guess. I really hope he heals soon, I keep sending Reiki healing to him!

Talking of the gym, it was fairly busy tonight but managed to get on a bench, no matter what I did or where I stood I always seemed to be in the way, don't you hate that when it happens!

Changing Times Ahead

I got told this week that I'm back on a 5 day week, I think it was all a big con as the orders never really dropped off and I think it was so they could move the machinery around at work, we'll see! On Friday evening I was at the gym working with Steve and he was asking how I thought we had gone over the last 6 months, I told him how pleased I was with the way we had copletely tuned my body around. My goals were to lose weight, get fit and put muscle on, two of the them have been reached and muscle is getting there. He sais we should really be putting muscle on and less cardio work (which helped with my fitness) So I think we will be changing things around when I'm at the gym next (tomorrow) and start bodybuilding I guess. Whatever, I am really liking the results and feel great to watch this space!

Went to Orlando's Christnening today and it was nice to see the gathering of the family but was really crowded at Angie's. Everything seemed to go well too, which is always a good thing in my book!
