This mornings coached session revolved around the deadlift. Lots and lots of deadlifts. Approaching a deadlift reminded me a lot of approaching a 2 year old, you have to show the deadlift who is boss and not hesitate or second guess yourself. You are in charge. It doesn’t matter whether the bar is holding a weight you would consider light or heavy you should go hard or go home. I think I will be hearing the word hips! in my sleep tonight.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a PR, probably because I didn’t show the attitude I needed to bring to the bar until I failed the lift twice. Luckily a swear jar policy is not operating.
Two blog posts I have read in the past week that I very much enjoyed and want to share
- Cellulite – it’s time we all just get the hell over it written by @go_kaleo at Go Kaleo.
- Why the thigh gap makes me sad written by Tracy I over at Fit, Feminist and (almost) Fifty.
Women, love thy body. That’s an order.
I have been munching on these 3 ingredient cookies, as I seem to be starving today. I used unflavoured pp and added raisins, cinammon and a tablespoon of apple puree. They taste bloody gorgeous. DrF took some to work for breakfast which were made using chocolate pp and a tablespoon of peanut butter. So versatile, quick and sugar free. Belvita can fuck off. I like adding photos to blog posts but I’ve finished them (I only make half a batch at a time otherwise I would wolf down the lot).
Final thought, I am going to get a post recovery workout drink. I would like something complete with leucine in, preferably unflavoured but if it is flavoured then with no sugars or sugar substitutes in. Any recommendations?
