Stepping it up!


I've been inspired by Lia to get myself organized. I'm moving into a very busy week with learning the new Les Mills choreography and attending Mike McSweeney's Core Course for Fitness First - I'm also moving into the next phase of Christian Thibaudeau's program which is all about pre fatigue type work which should be interesting (and DOMS inducing to say the least!).
My exercise week is looking like:
Sunday: Horizontal Dominance Training Upper Body, 30 min cardio
Monday: teach RPM
Tuesday: Prefatigue workout A
Wednesday: RPM at home, learning choreo
Thursday: RPM revision with Em, Bodybalance
Friday: Prefatigue Workout B, cardio
Saturday: Prefatigue Workout C, cardio
Sunday: teach RPM
My personal week is looking like:
Monday: work (programs etc), make birthday cake, cupcakes for school
Tuesday: Miss S's birthday
Wednesday: Public Holiday - activity with family
Thursday: Core Course
Friday: lunch with Steve (it's our 11th wedding anniversary!)
Saturday: 10 pin bowling and Sizzler party for Miss S
Sunday: off
Unfortunately with launches coming up, a day off doesn't look likely until the last week of August. This is when I'm going to schedule another day of indulgence! I'll have certainly earned it.
My other good news is that my physio, Dan, thinks my glute control has improved and he has given me the go ahead to keep squatting, deadlifting etc. I still have a long way to go with it and it will never be perfect, but it's really heartening. I am throwing in the Bodybalance to help open my hips - I did Balance last week and compared to Tony's yoga, it's a piece of cake. Well, not quite - but not as hard as I had remembered it to be.

Hey Liz,

My daughters birthday is also on Tuesday. She is turning 5, how old is yours?

I'm making chocolate crackles for the kinder kids (hoping these are fine for the kids with nut allergies, must confirm other wise I will also make cupcakes).

We have the Les Mills workshop on next Sunday so I am looking forward to seeing what they have for us this time round. Not looking forward to having to learn the chorey in 1 week on top of everything else though!!

Hi Liz.
I read your blog daily and just wanted to say you really are an inspiration to all of us mummies. I have just started my own 12 wk program with sue @ IBO but just wanted to say that you inspire me, and I hope to one day look and set good examples for my 3 kiddies.
I hope the flu didnt spread, and hubbys on the mend, it's getting real nasty these days.
Thanks for motivating me daily.

hi Liz,
Just wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration to all us mummies out there, I have just started a 12 wk program with sue at IBO, and I am excited, but I just wanted to let you know you are what I want to achieve and show to my kids that this is the way to be healthy and happy at 35, god I can only hope to look as good as you.
Thanks for motivating me daily to be the best I can.

Hi Hann, Combatgirl, and Jools -
Thanks for visiting!

Nice to "meet" you Jools - I wish you all the best on your journey. Motherhood certainly does a number on our bodies but that doesn't mean we can't be the best that we can be :)

Hugs
