Merry Chirstmas to anyone who reads this... MATT? do you even stop by still (wouldn't blame you if you didn't)
I've got some comp goals - looking at competition that will be 20 weeks out from Christmas day as a target.
Doing some study in personal training
And setting new career goals
HAPPY NEW YEAR - I'm predicting that 2011 will be awesome!

I got over 3.30pm slump - I've been busy so mind on other things truth be told
Overview for today:
AM cardio spin bike 60 mins 630 cal goo intensity, mix up of pace, speed, levels etc. Got up a good sweat.
M1: (7.30am) 1/2 c Oats, Egg White, splend, cinnamon + Protein Shake (favourite meal of the day)
M2: (10.15am) 1/2 c brown rice, 1 tin tuna with low cal chilli sauce
M3: (1.15pm) 1 x Medium Chicken breast + 2 cups veg
*Glass of fiber drink - filled me up so much I'm not hungry*
M4: (5.00pm) Maybe 2 c veg & 6 egg whites on the way home in car
Training: Chest tonight, yay, should be good, I'm feeling strong, just hope the gym is not as busy as it was the last few nights, I hate it being busy, it is hard to navigate and get on the equipment you want in the order you plan! I like to train with Jason and people move out of his way a lot of the time.
M5: Not sure, but probably chicken
M6: Might not fit this one in - that's ok though, I'm not exactly starving here!
I have been looking at bikinis and colours for next year - I know that I like valvet fabric and darker colours are better for me as I am not all that careful with the tan and I would hate the brown to stain it and look yucky. So far over the years I have had:
Black with Purple swirls
I had a red one made with a different fabric that I didn't like so I didn't wear it - But I don't think the red suited me. I am pouring over websites and magazines to get inspiration!

I'm not doing Nationals this year
I will be doing Aucklands early next year
I was not ready mentally to compete and therefore trained ok... but not 100% and certainly did not diet very well, it endded up as 1 day on 1day off with promiss of extra cardio to make up for it... nasty cycle of promissing that I'd get it sorted and focused.
So as I was not mentally ready, I was therefore not physically ready AT ALL!
- Not lean enough
- Not fit enough
- Not well enough
- Not recovering quick enough
It was a relife to finally let myself 'off the hook' and admit that 2010 was not going to be a competitive year for me.
Jason is competing in the local North Harbours in 2 and half weeks and he look fantastic! He took last year off and it worked for him, so it's going to work for me.

We went to see the breeder on Sunday and chose this little man. He is only six weeks old here, and we have to wait until he is 12 weeks old.
His breed is a 'Cheetoh', he has the looks of a wild cat -striped legs with spots on belly and back. They have great personalities, loving and fun, very social, like water and can be trained to do tricks like fetch.
This pic below shows how big they can get! Yay, I hope Hunter gets big.
Came home for the gym yesterday morning and told Jason I realised that I was not obssesed enough with training, dieting and competiting... I'd only gone through the motions. I tell ya that realisation is all I needed. I have written up a training plan and diet log and also seen a trainer who will give me a free sesion to 'change things up' and perhaps learn a few new things. So I'm getting it together, including my diet focus. Feeling good I tell ya!

Tomorrow (NZ time: 21 April 2010) it will be our anniversary, wow 4 years of happiness and love. Without Jason I don't know if I would have achieved my competitive goals, all I know is that he makes it easier and understands me like no-one else. The ups & downs, the highs & lows. And I know he will be there for me this year and we both aim for the stage in September and October and maybe even August...

Lets just say I'm in for some hard work and long hours in the gym this year to get my butt (and body) back into competition shape. I'm just working on some dates for Competitions etc and then it'll be full steam ahead. I'd really like to keep my log of training and dieting more up to date this year - but at the moment I don't think it'll do me any good to blog about how I'm not dieting and letting myself down by not giving it my all - but it's ok I know I will get back on track soon. Then all I can say is WATCH THIS SPACE - I'm out to claim some 1st places for sure!
