An Announcement . . . . .

WOAH, Steady on there Tiger!

Not that type of announcement!
REALLY!

NOOOOOOO! There is nothing baking in this oven I can assure you!

This is a different type of announcement, I’ll explain.

You may (or may not) note that I’ve been all over the place with my blogage over the last few months.

Nope? Didn’t notice??

Hmm I may need to work on my witty banter then!

Anyway, the reason for this is because (all) my time, spare and not so spare,  has been taken up with studying. Yes I’ve been a studious student for the last year and everything else has fallen by the wayside as I got stuck in to studying for my Certificate III and Certificate IV in Fitness. It’s been a looong road and at times a very stressful and tiring one, but . . . . . I did it, I finally did it.

I am now a fully qualified Personal Trainer! Check it!

BOOOM!

 DOUBLE BOOOOM!


 I am so ridonkulously happy and relieved to have finished and I am pretty proud of myself for pulling it off with 2 kids to look after. I was going to say, whilst also running a home,but given that I really didn’t quite pull that off we’ll stick with just looking after the kids! Hey, they are still alive, I count that as a win!

At times though I really did wonder what the hell I’d done and why on earth I’d started it, I mean who knew there was more to personal training than just shouting at your client to DROP DOWN AND GIVE ME 20?! (That’s a real question by the way!) Oh boy there is soooo much more to it and I wasn’t sure I would finish at times.

BUT I DID So YEY! GO ME!

 Well, that’s all fan-dabby-dosy isn’t it?!

Except . . . . . . . .

Now that I’m not studying anymore I actually have to –  do Something!

Hmm  bit stressful! What to do? What to do?

Anyone out there in need of a Personal Trainer?????

I went to the cafe – you’ll never guess what happened next . . . . .

I had a coffee!

What a story eh!

Don’t you just love those click fodder titles though, I saw one the other day and the title was something ridiculous like the one above and turned out to be such a non-story. Well let me assure you people I have one helluva story for you.

Keep reading . . . . .

So I am currently into my weight training ‘it’s all about dem gainz people, it’s all about dem gainz’.

Coupled with this, I am also currently studying to be a Personal Trainer  – I have nearly finished my Cert iii actually and have my practical assessment this weekend. In addition I am also following a Paleo(ish) diet.

Anyway part of my training regime involves me ensuring that I am getting enough protein in order to grow my little baby muscles but I really struggle with the traditional protein shakes (they taste gross) so I have jumped on the ‘Bulletproof’ bandwagon and now after I have been to the gym I make myself a Bulletproof coffee in my mixer shaker thing.

For those unfamiliar with the Bulletproof concept  – you basically put grass fed butter, MCT/Coconut/Brain Octaine Oil and whatever else takes your fancy, into your coffee, whizz it up and Bobs your Uncle –  Bulletproof a go go! Weird as it sounds it tastes really creamy and I have developed a bit of an obsession with it. So much so I have started adding my protein powder to it as well and having it as a post workout protein hit.

So far so weird?!!!

To continue, and provide some background for this story I must let you know that I am currently typing this (while I should be studying) in a busy cafe soaked from head to foot in Bulletproof!

As is everyone in the immediate vicinity to me.

What happened? Well let me fill you in. I’ll be honest,  my obsession got dangerous. I took my trusty shaker to the cafe, ordered my long black with extra hot water, poured it carefully into the shaker, started to shake and  . . . . .

Yep

Everywhere

I thought the top was closed, it was,  but the hot water created some sort of non vacuum meaning hot coffee, butter, oily mixture sprayed all over me and all over every.single.person sat within a 2cm radius of me.

I am sitting here mortified,

stinking of coffee, and,

attempting to style it out!

N.b Very difficult to style it out when you, all those around you and all of your hard written notes, are covered in coffee.

Ashamed!

On a side note though  – Give Bulletproof a try it’s awesome.

And wish me luck for Sunday!

Right I’m going for a shower.
