Rewarding myself with a Banana!

Morning Activity - Gym

5 minutes warm up on stationary bike
Chest Press - 3 x 15
Body Weight Squat with Swiss Ball - 2 x 20
DB Static Lunge - 2 x 15
DB Side Lateral Raise - 1 x 15, 1 x 12
DB Biceps Curl - 2 x 15
Triceps Cable pushdown - 2 x 15
Abs - 3 x 15 crunches; 3 x 15 reverse crunches
Stretches between each set.

I used the increased weights today for all sets. I find the Side Lateral Raise (similar to Flies only not on a bench) the hardest and I have only increased the weights a little bit for this one. I always feel good after a gym session and look forward to increasing the weights more next session if possible. I allowed myself the luxury of buying one banana to eat after I had finished. I haven't eaten a banana for ages - at $12 a kilo that's not surprising. It was very yummy!

Evening activity

Tonight we learnt a few new movements as we have just 2 more weeks before the end of the term and are now preparing for Level 1, next term. We spent some time doing hand stands resting our legs on the wall and ages in our shoulder stand.


  1. Then bananas don't grow in Australia, so sad can't imagine life with out bananas :)

    Nice yoga session.

  2. Bananas I have looked at with envy cost $14.99 a kilo in the last few days, at the local shops, and at the Fruit shop in Woden.

    They are now a luxury item.

    And Hilda - Yes they grow in Australia, but were devastated by the Hurricane in Queensland.
