The TT daily drama update

Just in case it didn’t quite make international headlines, this is why I still have a million Omega 3 caps sitting homeless in Auckland, unable to land in Christchurch today. This little incident really put a kink in my day! Yes.. it is all about me.. naturally. ;) I’m very glad that nobody was hurt of course, but it did make me feel a bit nervous as I dropped family members off at the airport tonight whom are heading North for the weekend. The atmosphere at the airport was quite tense and jumpy.

The current bout of ‘headache and tummy troubles’ that is going around has now come uncomfortably close to home, with Jase sitting around looking very ill. I’m still lurgy-free and determined to stay that way through sheer willpower and OCD behaviour with the handwashing… and sleeping in the spare room, taking a lot of Vitamin C and not touching anything. I’m catching a bit of ridicule at work because I actually have antiseptic wipes and use them to clean the telephone. I am not at the office very often and there is no phone at the desk that I use, so I have to use a shared telephone. My doctor told me that phones and very grubby and quite an effective way of spreading germs around. So I wipe the phone… what? Everyone has their little thing.

Day 54
Week 8, Day 5
(Week 2, Day 5 of official challenge)

TT 30 Day Fatloss
Workout C

I did pull-ups instead of the seated row. I don’t have a seated row machine and I’m really quite into my pull-ups at the moment. I SHALL do at least 6 in a row.. one day very soon, RAWR!. I use a ball for my incline press which means I have to keep the weight lighter.
A1) Wide pull-ups 3 x 6, assisted on the concentric
A2) DB Incline Press 3 x 6 with 7kg DB’s

B1) DB Row 3 x 8 with 10kg DB’s
B2) DB standing shoulder press 3 x 8 with 7kg DB’s

Kick-@$$, ‘legs want to fall off’ intervals on the stationary bike – 20 mins of wishing it was over (woot!)

I’m developing a new strategy around food, which goes something like.. stop being so uptight, just train hard and eat consistently, adjust if necessary.
1. Oatwhites, berries, 6 x Omega 3 capsules
2. Tuna and chickpea salad with tzatziki sauce, 1 plum
3. Pruffin, 6 Omega 3 caps
4. Protein cookie
5. Cheat meal: Cottage Pie,. ‘Eatright’ cookie, yogurt and cereal (that’s a sort of attempt at a healthy dessert!)
Fasting from 6.30pm – aiming for 24 hours this time, finish at 6.30pm tomorrow, let’s see how that works out!
