Well the magazine came out yesterday, my Mum called me at lunch time and came by to drop me off a copy so I could show it around the folks at work, she took home another copy to show my father - who was impressed according to my Mum. Quite fun being in a magazine and in 2 months time (fingers crossed) there will be a story about Jason and I in the magazine.
Well the last two days have been a bit of a drag - it's very muggy weather wise and it is draining and sapping my energy! But I'm still doing my moring cardio sessions and training 5 days a week at night with evening cardio to fill in the non lifting evenings. My diet has been good with the addition of nuts and dried fruit to keep energy levels a touch higher.
I am having to focus on drinking enough water - not normally a problem cause I love my water (you'd understand if you've ever been through a dehydration for a competition), but with the heat I really should increase fluids. Speaking of fluids, naughty old COKE ZERO has made it's way back into my life, yummy, but bloaty for my tummy. Will have to go cold turkey on this I think - it really is amazing the difference only drinking water / green tea (and a few morning coffees) makes. My skin is usually much clearer and no spots!
Competition Update: I am considering doing a comp early 2009 (March). I have been thinking about it for a week now and mentioned it to Jason - he of course is supportive no matter what I want to do, but I asked him to think about it for a day or two just to weigh up the impact of me doing a show on my own - I don't even know if I could do it on my own... watch this space I guess.
