I smile a lot.
People ask me why.
I ask why a smile needs to have a motive behind it.
People become confused.
What a world!
Recently, a friend showed me a funny picture stating:
Sorry I haven’t been posting about my workout - I’m still on it, and still with it. Will post about weigh-in in the next couple of days!
I was in a school last year that had names for each of their classes. ie, “The Electric Einstein”, “The Busy Bees”, “The Upgraders”, etc. All of them were funny, but also said something about learning, and developing one’s brain, or keeping busy.
What’s a good name for a classroom?
I tried to make the most out of Hump Day… Did a bit extra, and did some target muscle work. I was SOOOO sore… But it was totally worth it. My arms feel amazing, and I took a photo today to compare physical progress.
- 100 Skips (I’m doing them faster and they’re becoming a lot easier)
- Runwalk… Walkrun… Raln? Wunk? I’ll come up with a name for my technique.
- 100 Crunches
- 20 Bicep curls
- 20 Tricep lifts
- 10 Deltoid raises (HARD)
Breakfast: Strawberry Protein Shake
Lunch: Strawberry Protein Shake
Snack: Mini Wrap
Dinner: M and I went out to the pub with some of his friends. I ate a chicken thing with some salad… Couldn’t finish it, unfortunately. But it was good. It just means that my stomach has adjusted and I can only eat small portions again :) Coming in handy!
It’s come to my attention that I need to increase my water intake. I don’t think I’m making as much progress as I could, and it’s worrying me. Weigh in today was at 73.7kg. But I’m not trusting the scales… It gives me mixed answers. I fiddled around with the settings and found out that M had it set to the settings for his height and gender. Before I fiddled with the changes, it told me 75.8, 75.0, 75.2 … All different weights. So I changed the settings and I was under 74kg. Weighed myself a few more times, and it stayed at the same reading. But I still don’t trust it.
So, Goal for Tomorrow:
Carry around a 600mL water bottle during my adventures today and aim to fill it up again TWICE.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you’ve written up your resolutions and that you’re as glad as I am that the world hasn’t ended.
Breakfast: Strawberry Protein Shake :)

Exercise for the Day:
We spent the whole day out on Lake Alexandrina with M’s friends, on one of their properties. We went on the Jet-Ski, we rode motorbikes, we sat around enjoying the sun and each other’s company… They even had a water trampoline!! They suspended a trampoline on floating drums out in the middle of the water, and when you bounced on it, water splashed through. I spent a great deal of time on this genius invention…
The great thing is that, because I was so active and busy, I didn’t have time to sit around and snack. I didn’t have time to do anything except drink water and laugh all day.
And, as a result, the scales showed this morning that I’ve lost OVER 1KG!! I decided to weigh myself and my weigh-in was 74.0kg.
Stick with it, try and keep active today, and do things as much as possible… even though you’re sore from yesterday.
