barbabella's Journal, 10 January 2013

Thursday afternoon.

It's been a good week so far. I was exhausted last weekend, working days, shifts at the clinic and nights spent receiving new bison, but I caught up with sleep on Sunday and Monday night.

Eating is going very well, healthy homemade food, I increased my protein intake and it feels right. Old good habits are coming back!

Last night was my second Kettlebell class, and it was so much fun! At the end of the class I went to talk to Stef the teatcher. She complimented me on my form, I explained the previous Crossfit training and we started talking about our workouts. I am so glad I joined this class, she is a really nice, positive and dynamic person! She even offered me to borrow her KB if I want to train at home, and seemed interested in learning Olympic Weightlift. Who knows, maybe I found a new workout buddy!!

This weekend I will be at school, We'll have an exam first thing Saturday morning and I don't feel ready... It's ok, I still have time to review the muscles before the test. I can't believe the final exam is almost here, only 2 months left!

Time to get ready for my shift at the clinic tonight. Hopefully the roads are not too bad, we're having heavy snow fall since last night.

Happy day buddies!

That's wonderful that things are working out so well with your kettlebell class and the instructor. The quality of the instructor is so important! Good luck with your exam - I'm sure you'll do great. Wishing you a safe drive :)

YUP, KB training is great. I have been doing it for over a year now, & never get bored of it. When I first startet I used a 4 kg bell, now I do most of the class with 12kg :). Good luck with your exams & drive carefully in the snow :)

I have a couple of very light kettle balls. Haven't done my DVD in a LONG time. I'm on an unintentional exercise hiatus but will get back to it soon. You sound great Anne. So cool about the new class. I'm excited to see what the future holds for you!
