Going to attempt to make this a good training week. Didn’t get off to a good start yesterday. I was basically stuck at the computer working from when I woke till 11pm last night and hardly had a chance to answer mail or annoy people on the interweb…and I always try to make time for that…no matter how busy I am.
This week is basically about maintenance…I want to maintain my weight at or around 110kg and keep the off mat portion of my training on track. I feel great at the moment and am looking forward to the Christmas and New Year period being over and everything getting back to normal in the New Year.
I’ll be doing some testing between Christmas and New Years as well so we’ll see where I’m at then.
Rest Day…too much work to do and not enough time to do it.
I weighed in tonight…109.6kg…and yes…I had a witness. Pretty happy that I’ve been able to maintain and manage my body weight so close to where I wanted it.

Went to the gym…warm up…started my session and just felt like crap so stopped. Did a bit but nothing worth mentioning really.
Note: It’s Christmas morning and I feel like absolute crap. I think I’ve managed to work myself into the ground…I blame my non existent job and the long hours I’ve not been working…I had a bit of a cough yesterday…but today I am properly sick…the cough, congestion and I have the ‘sickness sweats’ so no training today. Going to spend my Christmas day sleeping I think in the hope that the rest will have me sorted out.
I am having a prolonged near death experience…no sleep due to hacking cough…constantly alternating between chills and full body sweating…along with soreness in every joint in my body. Not the Christmas and New Year period I was looking forward to.
Still sick as a dog but managed to drag my carcass to work. Thankfully stumbled onto the right combination of over the counter medications after going through cough syrups like it was some sort of wine tasting…my personal recommendation is Benylin 4Flu Tablets stacked with Nurofen Plus tablets…a fantastic oral only cycle.
No longer feel like I am on my death bed. The medication I’m taking has worked a treat. Not coughing anywhere near as much and when I do cough I no longer feel like my head is going to explode.
I think it is going to be a few more days before I am back ready to train.
