You Are Cookie Monster

Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.

You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you life your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"

I actually was expecting to be Oscar the Grouch! That's my mother's pet name for me at times. My sister however has always been, and will always be to my mother "My Little Ray of Sunshine". At least we balance each other out :P

On another note, my week has improved from the mood I was in. I know why too - my leg pain made me so grumpy coz I couldn't - and still can't - do anything. I haven't been able to do cardio since Monday, I still cannot walk properly. I had to walk a few blocks to the bank yesterday and my legs just collapsed, I can't explain it...they just gave out. I saved myself from falling to the ground (would have been a sight to see!), lucky it wasn't when I was crossing the road! LoL It also happened last nite as well at home... it's bizarre. :( Kek, you did remind me that I DID miss a session last week although I did get one in the week I flew out to play tourist. That would be the reason they're so bad, but this is just worse than the first time I ever ever trained legs
I've also got a heeeuuwwwge ulcer in my mouth, the 2nd consecutive one since I've been back from holidays, and it's in such a bad spot and so painful that no mouth ulcer gel is helping. It hurts to talk and to eat, so i just mumble and slurp away. LoL. I've had to take painkillers as I can't sleep, then when they wear off I'm up again. It's also giving me headaches. So THAT'S my 'excuse' for my mood earlier this week. Oh woe is me isn't it!! *brings out violin*

I had a chat yesterday with a business mentor (I guess that's what I'd call him) and showed him a few proposals I'm working on, and he was quite impressed. So I'm happy :) I've found previously that being my own boss and having no one to be held accountable to, I can get a little 'relaxed' at times in my approach to building the business - especially when I'm in my comfort zone and things are ticking along OK. This guy has taken me under his wing and will be great to keep me plodding along with my ideas, and to make sure they get done

Better run, I mean crawl, work to do. Am going to the gym to train upper body, and plan to jump on the bike and do what I can. Should be right once my legs are all warmed up! I better have built some muscle from Monday's session...

Load up on L-Glutamine and vit C - all good immune system stuff. And some B vitamins might help the ulcer too.

Maybe sitting in a bath full of ice might help your legs? LOL.

Poor legs, copping another hammering like that!

I feel for you with your mouth ulcers... I am usually a chronic mouth ulcer sufferer too, but since I've been taking glutamine religiously I've barely had one. Hope it clears up soon - lots of Kenalog!!

Oh your legs sound so sore. Maybe your body just needs a week's break? Just to recover a bit. Or maybe you should book in for a massage? They are great!

That is awesome about the business mentor, it is a great opportunity to learn from someone else's successes and failures so you can make your business the best!

Hope you have a great weekend

Don't forget to pick your Filex workshops..... Hot Bosu Guy is a MUST. We can have fun being all un-co and falling off those things and perve at the same time.

*ahem* Not that I'd do that. Perve, I mean. Married and all that....

Geez girl, what are you doing to yourself??? That's some serious DOMS happening there!! I hope the pain has eased up a bit, nothing worse than being antsy to do cardio or training and your body is too sore from previous training to give it 100%. I hope it's eased off a bit and you're ready to do it all again :o) xxx

Hi Selina!

Thay are painful little suckers :(

Selina said...

Ta Kek - as i said in that email, are you ever wrong?? ;)
Hils - another sufferer!! Kenalog used to work a treat, but it's like I'm now immune to it! Was on glut until i forgot to take it to melbourne, then looked what happened. back on it now, hope it makes a diff :)
Bec - LoL i just had a break! that's why I'm so sore I guess. no one was touching me with a massage in their state!!
Kek - getting there.
Rae - all better now! until tomorrow :P
Rene - you've NEVER had one before?!?! OMG! U so don't know what you're missing out on! LoL Lucky you, I always have one somewhere or other
