VIDEOFY ME

Have just tried a new app called Videofy Me and it’s for all of you awesome people who like to video blog as well. I love it! I notice I have gotten lazy about writing stuff but I would still like to share what I’m up to and this is definitely a good way of doing that those days I’m out and about and don’t have time to write… as I like to do more than one thing at a time. I have put in an order on a 3rd bodily arm so I can do more, but I think that order will take a while to deliver. 😉

TOP 10 FEMALE TRAINING QUESTIONS

“The female body. Why is there so much confusion when it comes to building the ideal female body? Perhaps it is because many fitness professionals are just as confused as their clients. Should you use female specific programs, or just grab a program out of Men’s Health? And where does resistance training come into the picture? Is cardio better then lifting weights when trying to drop a pant size?

As an educated fitness professional, you are in the perfect position to clear up the confusion. It is no surprise that most women are not content with their bodies. They hear celebrities claim that lifting light weights is how they stay thin. Women see advertisements showing thin yogis saying that Pilates and yoga will give them the “long” and “lean” muscles that are so desirable. Then they read magazines stating that cardio is the only way to burn those extra pounds hanging around the mid-section. But what does research say about this dilemma? The solution goes by many names: resistance training, lifting weights, strength training. Whatever you choose to call it, one thing is for sure: it works.

Let’s look at the 10 most common strength training questions asked by female clients, so you’ll be ready to answer them when they inevitably arise.”

LOVE THOSE LUNGES

Living my life in 250 km/hr today. Got up real early so I could have a refreashing -12 degree walk with Murphy. Then off to the gym where I completely murdered my legs. One of my favourite exercises at the moment are walking lunges! Looove them! Haha. Then the nanny was back, had a 3-year old to run around with all day, including join in at her dance class. Then rush off to get pummeled at a Kickboxing session where we practiced falling and swiping each other. Bruises developing as I write. And to finish off this lovely action-packed day, I instructed a fast, fun-filled IndoorWalking class. After today, my legs don’t know whether to come or go. “The Tina Turner-walk” tomorrow for sure!
Now, lights out! Nite nite.

LIVEFIT WEEK 4

It was so worth me taking a rest day yesterday because this morning I felt strong and revving to go, to start this fabulous week! First on my workout schedule this week was Back and Biceps. Remember last week when I was feeling so week? None of that today. I was ripping through the workout and it felt great. I really worked on isolating the muscles and feeling them work. Total focus!

Here’s my workout for today:
Hammer strength lat pull
Pull-ups
Seated narrow-grip cable row
T-bar row
Back extensions
BB biceps curl
Incline DB curl
Alternating hammer curls

Jamie Eason with some nice looking back muscles. 

THE NANNY

Lordy lord what a day I had! Being a full-time parent is never to be underestimated ever again. Complete and utter focus 100% of the time, but at the same time be sure to make the child feel independent as well… Where to draw the boundaries? Beats me, all I say is that I pretty much had a little angel to baby-sit today, and still, I am mentally drained. I’m sure it gets better once you know what the child is capable of doing and not doing, but heck, I defo had a full-time job today. Any laundry done today? Nope! Dishes? Some of them. Household chores ticked off the list? Are you frickin kidding me?! I was minding the child! Workout done? Heck yeah! 🙂

I remember being a nanny in my young days… Oh, so vaguely now. Haha!

WORDPRESS APP

So, I have just exported my blogspot blog to this wordpress blog and downloaded the app. Seems like WordPress has a more advanced system so it will take a while for me to find and figure everything out, but wanted to give this app a go anyway. Over and out for tonight! 🙂

GO HEMP

Picked up this protein powder mix at the supermarket yesterday. It’s made from Hemp, Acai, Spirulina and Wheat grass. Yummy! Haha!
I mix it in with my regular protein morning smoothie. Doesn’t look pretty and has a funky taste (which I mask with pure organic kakao), but it’s good for me! 🙂 New year, new challenges.
