Hey Weight Watchers

How was your Christmas & New Year? Mine was spent mostly on the platform and asleep. It was HEAVEN! I hope you're all training hard and feeling motivated. Don't just want; do.

I have a NYR which so far, so good, I have managed to keep to! I have absolutely no self control when it comes to sugar even though I am more than aware of how rubbish it is for me. So I made a NYR to have no processed sugar in 2013. I am so excited for 2014 new year's day for my next cup of M&M tea :) mmm M&M tea.

So anyway, another great thing happening in 2013 is that so far, I have somehow managed to get a PB of an exercise or lift EVERY SESSION. This hasn't been a conscious effort, but a side effect of the, let's face it, brilliant coaching and planning on the part of my coach (quite frankly, I haven't a clue in terms of programming).

Also exciting, I have a training partner in Hannah. AKA Kermit. She is pretty strong and keen on technique so even though she is starting out, she is getting crazy good fast :) I am trying to help coach her too :)

A very brilliant man often jokes "you don't want to get too strong too fast" - which, in terms of technique keeping up and injury, isn't bad advice, but those aside, I intend on giving it my best shot.

In the back of my mind, and the pit of my stomach, the English Championships are approaching fast. I need to keep my head and stay focussed.

Oh! Dinner's ready; later lifters,

P.S. A PB for you all to see: I wasn't focussed and halfway through the 2nd pull, was calculating what was on the bar. Never do this: it will throw you off your A-game ;)
Cleaning up, Again


  1. Dear Ellie,

    I wasn't able to find the email function so I decided to write to you via a comment. I just want to tell you that I somehow missed your goodbye on instagram and that I really do miss your pictures of your happy little dog.

    Hope all is well with you and Cali. Wish you all the best! Take care!
