Deficit Push-ups

So it was a hectic day.. and I’m so grateful to have a good friend who went for a chill out walk with me this afternoon.. and then off to the gym to sweat off today’s happenings. It was a tough workout with 5x300m rows, 50kg sled pushes.. (a cheeky 80kg one too!), followed by the daily WOD which included deficit push-ups. I never thought I’d be able to do them.. I ended up completing the workout on 20kg plates.. and just to see if I could, I tried 2 x 20kg! Yay! Progress! ​

TGIF

I’m grateful that it’s Friday. I’m looking forward to a big sleep in.a weekend to reenergise my flat batteries.You know you’re pale when the makeup artist who is helping you match your skin tone to foundation announces your shade as…… translucent! That’s right, I don’t have a tone.. I’m see-through.

I’m grateful for warm, snuggley, poncho jackets.. it kept the chill away and looks fabulous (even if I say so myself). I’m also grateful to be awake… it sounds silly but when you’ve struggled to be awake, to go to work, to eat, to breathe through pain.. you begin to appreciate the smallest things in life. Tonight for the first time in eight days I have minimal pain in my gut which means I’m not beyond exhausted (just tired). Yay! On the mend.
