I R Model Now!

30 Nov

I’ve got about a week and a half until my next measurements and I’m feeling apprehensive.  These last couple of kilos are being a real pain in my fat ass.  It’s going to take extra discipline to get rid off them so I’ve gone back to keeping a food diary and I’ve really started to up my workouts.

I’ve started playing touch football again for the first time in 11 years and it is so much fun!  I was so worried I would be a fumbling mess but at the risk of sounding like a corny Celine Dion song, I have to say it’s all coming back to me now.  We train twice a week in fitness and ball drills and we have our games on Mondays.  I scored a try last week and that was fricken awesome!

Seeing that I have picked up touch I have decided to drop indoor soccer for the time being.  Not that I don’t love it, because I really do, but Thursdays have become the only day that I can have a rest day and boy, I need that day.

So the old training schedule looks like this now:

Monday: Touch Football
Tuesday: Group Personal Training
Wednesday: Personal Training + Touch Training
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Personal Training
Saturday: Group Personal Training
Sunday: Touch Training

Intense, yeah?  Pro athlete, right?  Oh I know.  You don’t have to tell me!

Food-wise I’ve still been sticking to minimal wheat / starch products and lots of lean protein, legumes, quinoa, fruit and vegetables.  I just need to be careful of this sweet tooth that seems to be taking a large bite out of me lately.  I’m blaming hormones.  Yep, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.  But no more will I be a slave to hormonal changes!  I’ll allow a few pieces of dark chocolate once a week and THAT’S IT.  No ifs, ands or buts! (cries)

In one of my last posts I mentioned I did a fashion shoot for Cosmopolitan magazine.  Well, that’s because I’m pursuing a lucrative career in modeling!  I’m going to be the next Jennifer Hawkins y’all!  Ha! Insert your own laughter here.  No, actually Cosmo like to use “real girls” in some of their shoots so I tentatively put down my name.  To my surprise they actually called me in!  It was such a good experience because it was almost like a little reward for myself for all my hard work this year.

I was incredibly nervous and some of the photos look like I’m a deer caught in headlights!  Luckily they let me pick me my favourite photos so they will use one of the ones I picked for the issue.  I will be in the March issue of Cosmopolitan Australia so make sure you grab a copy!  For a small fee I will sign your copy.  Yes, that’s right!  You’ll have MY signature!  Get in while you can.  This offer is very limited (so limited it doesn’t actually exist…).

I think that’s about all I needed to update you on.  Oh, yeah, my obsession with chai lattes… I think I’ll tie that in to the tea post I’ve got coming up.  A word of warning – you may become addicted to tea after reading.  I take no responsibility.

    I can’t wait to see you in Cosmo! There are only a handful of places to find the Aussie version of the magazine here, so I hope you post a copy when it comes out!

    I can’t wait to see your magazine shoot!

    I love these buzz words, “lean protein, legumes, quinoa, fruit and vegetables” – very appealing.

      Haha “buzz words”… 😉
