Friday was a rest day. I decided to give my cardio session a miss and we went out for dinner instead. I had grilled Barramundi with a salad and some fries and a couple beers.

On Saturday I went to work. I had Subway for lunch... nom nom, then I bought some gummy lollies and shared those with my workmate. They made me feel a little ill actually, kinda like a bad sugar rush. It's probably why I don't eat them that often anymore. After work I went to the gym for a lower body workout.


Squats (with Safety Squat Bar)
warmup: bar x 8, + 20kg x 5, + 30kg x 4, + 40kg x 3
sets: + 50kg x 5, + 52kg x 5, + 52kg x 5

These are feeling really good.

Glute Ham Raises 4 x 10 x 7.5kg behind head

Split Squats 2 x 10 x 48kg

Cardio: 15 minute incline walk on treadmill

Saturday night, we went out for beers. Had a great time!

SUNDAY - Rest Day. I was feeling slightly hungover in the morning from the beers the night before then by the time I remembered I was supposed to go to the gym for intervals I didn't really feel like it. In the morning I made those Cheesy Walnut Scones and then some Almond Biscuits. I spent the day just lazying around then we went out for a couple of beers again then went to see Underworld 3.

I didn't really have a great sleep last night, luckily I don't work Mondays.

I ordered some Candy Corn on Friday and got an email today that it's been posted! I hope it gets here in time for the weekend so I can eat them then. I ordered the Pumpkin Mellowcremes, Autumn mix and Fall Festival Mix. They were out of the regular Candy Corn. I can't wait!!
