Hello all ,
I've been absent on here, for a little while ,wasn't ready to tell you what an IDIOT i've been. Because i was such a FOOL and went back to the gym to early. Everything was going fine after my op, no pain , healing all very quickly, so thought it would be ok to do a leg wotk out. Nothing to heavy. No pain or discomfort. Till the next morning woke up to some major swelling. Thought ok better just rest up , going to get stitches out in a few days.Went to get the stitches out and got told to go home, pack a bag , meet you in surgery tonight. That was Monday 18th. He said i had an absess and hematoma. Woke up  from surgery in pain , had a nappy pin through the wound  holding a drain tube. Looked and felt like i had been hit with an axe. The doctor said it was a bigger op than he thought , he had to cut away dead tissue. Spent two days in hospital, and have been a couch potato ever since. Had the stitches out on Monday just gone and and now on the mend. So yes i feel like such a FOOL. So obsessed that i couldn't put my body on hold for just a week or so longer. So ANGRY with myself . But whats done is done. My body has gone a bit soft on me, but nothing i cant fix .Will give me something to work on. Ventured out for a little walk around the neighbour hood last night with hubby and daughter. Just a walk no power walking yet. Had to get out in the fresh air .Woke up this morning checking to see if there was any swelling , but all is fine. So yes i am a bit paranoid now. Will head back to the gym next week.Wont be doing any legs till maybe the week after.Will start with just body weight squats and lunges i think.My little chubby legs will just have wait .
So there you go , that was my news. Hopefully next week i will be able to report on my progress at the gym. No doubt i would have lost a bit of strength .
Take care all
love Diane

Recovering well after my op, not as sore or uncomfotable as i thought i would be.Just really sleepy all the time.Have been relaxing on the couch most of the time watching telly and dozing on and off. Must be the all the gas in my system from the anaesthetic. Did manage to go to the gym on Friday though. Had to finish the week with a shoulder and chest workout.

Had a bit of pigout last night, found some butter cookies someone gave us for xmas and thought i would just have a sample to see what they were like, ended up eating way toooo many , i dont even normaly like bickies, but these were bit more ish. Then got into some lollie snakes, which i have hidden from my kids for times when i have had a hard workout , i take one or two to put some sugar in my muscles. Then had rice cakes with peanut butter .This little feast took place at about 11.30 last night after waking up from napping through the movie i was watching. Never mind i must have needed a little sugar fix. Will have to be good today, since i cant cardio it off. I think i can manage a walk, so will do that this evening.

Had a lady from the gym stop me on my way out on friday, she is training hard and wants to compete in Oct and said she wants my body and was asking how to get it. Geeee whooo da thought .....It's funny how we think we are out of shape in our off season, but to others were obviously not. I seem to be getting a few comments lately, even from the young ones at the gym . I tell them hard work and determination. Getting fit isn't easy.I thought my trainer was tying to kill me those first few months. He worked me hard with the weights and the cardio. So many times in my head i wanted to tell him to , dont you know how old i am ? this is not fun .hahaha, but i am such an obedient little girl i perservered. Every week i wanted to sack him, but thought no, that would be quitting, keep going , try it for a few more weeks.  Now i love my cardio and training.I couldn't imagine my life with out it.
 So anyway i am quite excited for this lady, told her her i would help her out anyway i can with advise or posing practice. From my past mistakes I should be able to pass on what not to do in posing, like squeeze your bum cheeks together in the back pose, ewww not a nice look.hahaha.Not on me anyway. hehehe.
Well thats my post for today, enjoy your sunday everyone

Hi Everyone,
Spent my day in hospital today. Had a cist (hope thats all it is.) removed today. It was down below on my panty line  near my lymph glands. Took three months to get in to see a specialist, and he was a bit concerned about my glands being up a bit so wanted it out ASAP. So my day went as follows

Woke up at 6 am , into the shower and at the hospital by 6.30.Was dying of thirst and hunger by 7.30.
They gave me a pre op at 8.30 thank god so i got to sleep through my thirsty and hungry state.hahaha.
Woke up at 12.00 and they took me down to theartre. then woke up in revovery at 1.30 i think it was. Stayed there till 2.45 and then they got me back to the room and fed and watered me. Then dozed on and off till my daughter collected me at 5.30.They fed me again before i left, i must have looked still hungry, haha. So have slept most of the day today and still fell a bit groggy and could take off to bed for the night now.But i will wait til at least 9.30 .Not in any pain as yet so thats good. My lump that was about the size of a 10 cent piece has gone off to pathology, so hopefully the results will come back clear .Have stitches in for next 10 days.Hopefully I will be able to still do my leg work out next week. They will go to mush if i dont train them.
Well thats my post for today, finding it hard to concentrate here , must be still drugged.
Take care all

what a day

Hi All ,
Well i have been busy today. First up was gym this morning. Warmed up with two 800m stints on the rower. Then a good back session with my trainer. Then home to do some major house work.Finaly got that done by 5.00 then met my daughter at the beach and she took me on a walk run in the boggy sand up the beach for half hour one way then half hour back again.She did let me walk some of the way back on the waters edge. But then it was back to the soft deep stuff with a sprint to the finish line. . She's such a slave driver. Certainly got a good leg workout doing that one .She said she has been doing beach runs a few times a week lately , no wonder she has nice legs and butt , or is it because she is only 22 ?? hahaha. No she has been on a fitness journey the last few months.She has lost about 5 k's and looking like a real little sexy fit bitch . Finaly taught her that eating more and more often and cleaner is the way to go. So now she is a real little health and fitness freak. She wants to do a comp this year. Will have to get her to start her own blogging  journey to the stage. Would like to see her start off with bikini sports girl section or figure fitness as she has the acro and dancing skills. Dont think she has enough muscles yet for figure, sh sh sh sh hopefully she wont read this , hehehe.
 Well i'm off to bed , keep working hard girls, remember 2010 is the year and i WANT to follow your journeys to the stage, weight loss , improving your physic or what ever else.
Love  Diane xxx

Do you think i am to old to take this up?

This is my very talented niece Georgia above perfoming in Singapore Recently, she has just turned 15. Her Dance school has opened a new studio in Singapore, So a select few were invited from Perth to perform a few times over a weekend to promote the dance school.There are photos of her doing back flips but she was so fast they turned blurry. Their performances were exceptional, some of the locals came back to watch each show.They happened to be up there the same week we were there, so i was so happy i got see their show. I am definately going to get her into figure fitness in a few years time.
