Struggled a bit today as I had to fly out and was feeling a bit tired.
Was feeling a bit average in the morning, tried to sleep in but for
me that meant getting up at 6:30am. I had done all my training for the
week so was planning to relax before flying out, although after sitting
around feeling average I decided a run was in order at 8:30am! The sun
was out in full force and it was hot, but I needed a run to pick me up.
I’m seriously addicted to the endorphins from exercise and after just 35
minutes I came home a different person and was so glad I’d forced
All packed for my 3 day trip. Had to fly to Sydney (paxing, not
working) so had a Salad on board, wasn’t as spot on as my usual salad
but a pretty good option. Managed to say no to the nuts, wine and
ice-cream althouh had to really fight the urge to include a few extras
Added in an extra jog/walk. Went up my favourite hill, although this
time ran to the base, 10 mins, walked up 10 mins and ran home! Hot but
WATER: Most probably not quite enough, didn’t bring my water bottle
on board although had lots of glasses but not as much as I’d normally
DRINKS: NONE and that Business class wine looked so nice!
Overall just glad to make it through Sunday as it was one of those
days that just felt a bit harder. I also find it hard when I’ve got time
just hanging in my hotel room as the mini bar calls you.
WEEKLY RAP UP!
Feeling quite proud of myself that I’ve made it through the week and
pretty much achieved all my goals (except for that one extra little
4 X WEIGHT
2 X SPRINT SESSION
1 X 5KM RUN
1 X 45 MINUTE STEADY STATE
3 X RPM (1 extra, than planned)
2 X HILL (1 X JOG/WALK)
1 X 50 MIN POWERWALK
* All walking is extra and not planned.
It sounds alot but I pretty much normally do cardio every morning
anyway, it’s the weights that I’ve let slip lately so feeling really
happy that I got all 4 sessions in.
Really happy with my nutrition although I did notice myself getting a
bit more relaxed as the week went on. Portion sizes slowly increased
and I was more tempted to pick. Have to keep reminding myself to really
be spot on so all my hard work in the gym isn’t going to waste. It’s
also helping keeping my nutrition really simple.
Still having days where I feel great and other days where I don’t
but just focussing on doing what needs to be done! So onto week two,
sticking to the same again.
Have a fabulous week.
