I'm back!

well its been 6 weeks since I last posted anything - seems like longer than that - so much has happened!

ok so lets do a quick catch up 


its was the hardest thing I've EVER done - mentally and physically - not for the faint hearted thats for sure! trouble was I got sick with a severe chest cough, fever and flu the day I left for Africa....could hardly get out of bed to drag myself to the airport...and it didn't get better the whole time I was away. I climbed the mountain stopping every 2nd or 3rd step to cough up my lungs and green goo - twice I broke down in tears cos it was so bloody hard - I nearly quit...
but I didn't....and I made it...and its was amazing once I got to the top, check out the photos!
I did say I probably wouldn't go to the gym for 3 weeks after Kilimanjaro  because I was sick of exercise - well I haven't, not because I didn't want to, but because I have just been sick - mind you the upside of this has been - lots of sleep!! 
I did say that once I got back I'd be getting a lot more sleep, well I think I've finally caught up on the last 3 months! :-)

so where am I at?

well I'm sooo glad to be back on my low/no carbs diet
I've been eating anything and everything the last few weeks to try and get better, but I've felt like a total fat blob - now that is certainly not true (pick up my new size 6 tailored suit today....very excited! and the spray tan lady complimented me on my beautifully toned legs....bring on short shorts this summer!), but my body just doesn't like carbs anymore - and I'm talking about multigrain bread and brown rice here - so not even crappy carbs like white rice, white bread, sugar or pasta.
lean is the way to go - curry for breakfast again - yay!

I've also got back to the gym this week for the 1st time in 4 weeks - phew! how nice is it to be back training again - albeit not to the same extent as before - definately no more office block stairs for me!
well....until the next mountain... :-)

so now I've got at least another 2 weeks before my next assessment which  I'm looking forward to  - it will be very interesting to see whats changed.
I'm going to really focus on eating lots of broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts and getting lots of sleep - lets see if I can make some progress on my calves and hammies!
