November 9, 2011

 

:D:D:D:D my partner bought me a new dumbbell and barbell set
he made me do some chores around the house whilst he sneakily ran inside to haul the equipment into our room so that when i walked in, i would be surprised. 
i have wanted one for AGES but have been a cheap ass so never bought myself any. they're great quality too, cast iron plate weights and a solid steel (?) bar and dumbbell bar. all interchangeable. :D:D i'm so lucky. 

it's very similar to this but with more weights and a longer bar as well.

 

 

(burgen bread + peanut butter + strawberries = YUM. don't knock it 'til you try it ;) )

Dinner the other night:

Wholemeal wraps with honey soy beef


Masterfoods Honey soy & garlic marinade
Lean beef mince
Whole meal wraps
handful of baby spinach
diced avocado


this meal was so simple.  All I did was cook the mince with the honey soy marinade & threw all the ingredients together in a wrap. You can add more veggies to this like tomato and rocket.. and also cheese if you like :) excuse the Iphone photography haha

Begin this exercise with your hands on the floor, your back straight and your feet on a Swiss Ball as demonstrated. Hold this position and slowly lift one leg keeping your knee straight and the Swiss Ball still. Bend your elbows slowly and perform 8-12 push ups.  Slowly return to the starting position and repeat with the other side.
