– Run 10km
– ENJOY THE JOURNEY, BE CONSISTENT, TRAIN HARD, EAT WELL BUT STILL ENJOY THE PROCESS
Week 3 has been great, so much better than Cyclone week and has
reminded me again just how important it is to keep going. After a pretty
average week last week it would have been so easy to give up but I know
from experience I needed to keep going.
This week my training wasn’t the best although my nutrition was
fantastic. It’s also been a good reminder that about 80% of our results
come from what we put into our mouths and even though I might not have
trained as much eating really well has paid off.
TRAINING LAST WEEK:
2 x HIGH INTENSITY RESISTANCE WORKOUTS (aiming to burn at least 300 calories per session)
1 X BIKE INTERVAL – 35mins
1 x BIKE SESSION – 40 mins
• The lack of training was because I struggled to get my mojo back
on the weekend (the start of my week) and then I left a couple of
workouts until the afternoon and it just didn’t end up happening as
Braden had his shots and had been a grumpy bum all week. Lesson learnt!
HAVE TO TRAIN IN THE MORNINGS!!!!!
FANTASTIC. After having a pretty average week the week before I knew
I had to get my nutrition back on track if I ever want to get back into
my “normal” clothes. I’ve decided simple is the best and is what works
for me. So basically during the week I eat the same things for
breakfast, lunch and snacks and then just change my dinner around. This
makes things so much easier as I know exactly what I need to eat, lucky I
love all my meals. I’ve also included a more substantial afternoon
snack as it’s when I tend to hit a wall and I need something more
filling. So Chocolate Oats is on the menu twice and I have it for
breakfast and late arvo again.
WEIGHT LOSS: 1.4kg – 7.9kg TO GO (2.9KG to pre-pregnancy weight)
LOST 6CM – 44.5CM TO GO
HARDEST THINGS SO FAR –
– Training myself! I might have the knowledge but I still doubt
myself all the time and I do enjoy having someone to keep me more
– Being constantly tired and staying strong when it comes to those sugar cravings
-Lack of time. I now understand why everyone told me to really enjoy
those last few weeks before bubs arrived as now I struggle to find any
time for me and it’s hard.
The good news is that I’m still going strong and little Braden is
getting bigger by the day so I can’t be doing too bad. (sorry I had to
attach another pic of the little spunk!)
Thanks for everyone’s comments recently it really helps especially
Shar’s which reminded me not to be so hard on myself. (thanks Shar)
