Nutrition without standard lunch is working a treat & am not bingeing as could be the case - feels like its working by my jeans as well - Tanita scales have still not arrived just got an email stating they will be in stock Thursday - Well why the ##@ didn't you post that on your website ??? hmm ?? yes of course because I would have gone elsewhere ..... nevermind another few days won't hurt in the grand scheme of things

Plan of taking my breaks & reading well hasn't quite worked out - but am getting plenty of reading on the bus/home - but really do need to start to take my breaks .

Now I think I have lost my cell phone ... bugger just when I have convinced myself an IPhone is not essential!!

Stepped things up a notch, and moved to advanced workouts, its all about attitude ...... mind you my quads won't like me tomorrow

Had a think about yesterday & the intervals, realised its important to keep your head on the 'end game', yes intervals are boring but its 2 x30 mins a week, when you think there is 168 hours a week kinda puts 1 hour into perspective! Whats the end goal when you look at the advanced stuff in "intense conditioning" stuff like 1-arm pushups, jump pull-ups etal,

Liked the e-mail today on Grains - makes you think - am trying to reduce grains/pasta from my diet. don't think they will ever go completely but am more aware of them now .

also helps add more daily veg in my diet - new goal to try & eat veg in most/every meal - that will be a challenge for me - so any brilliant ideas welcome.
