Day 21 – my last day of the 21 day fat loss challenge

So today is my last day of my 21 day challenge – but I will be keeping it up! I’ve got into a great routine over the last three weeks and really enjoying my workouts too. They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, and I think that is correct!

Today I started the day off with a Kettlebell Tabata workout whilst Lacie was in bed, then I had a juice made up of 3 carrots, a whole cucumber, 2 apples and half a lemon before taking her swimming at Virgin Active. I love how many vegetables you can cram into a juice – think of all those nutrients feeding your cells!!

Lacie had a good sleep after her swim so I had a protein bar before answering a few emails and starting a feature for Fertility Road Magazine.

For lunch, Lacie had sweet potato, butternut squash, spinach & pear with Cod, while I had a spinach falafel and hummus salad. I then had some chocolate CO YO mid arvo followed by a spinach, apple, celery, cucumber and avocado smoothie for dinner.

I will weigh myself tomorrow – but I know that all my clothes feel really comfortable and I’m feeling slimmer than before so I’m happy. This challenge has been great for keeping me focus, so if anyone wants to join me on another one, drop me an email and I’ll write a 21 day challenge for you too.

Day 6 – 21 day weight loss challenge

Day 6 already…and it’s been another good day.

I started the day off with an hour’s without. I won’t lie, I very nearly stayed in bed, but I didn’t. I lied to myself and said I’d do 20 minutes, but once I got stuck in it ended up being 65 minutes! I’m glad I did it. Today’s session consisted of tube walking, planks & squats to warm up, then some overhead squats to help improve my strength followed by a 15 minute circuit at the end of goblet squats, burpees, squat jumps & more burpees.

I then had scrambled eggs, avocado & almonds for breakfast, homemade tomato soup for lunch, some homemade CO YO and banana ice-cream mid arvo (yes it was amazing!) and then a chicken breast & salad for dinner.

With my soup I also had this amazing Sukrin low carb bread. It was delish. I really crave the stodginess of bread now it’s cold (and I’m tired!) and that Lacie has toast every day. I have to throw her left overs away as soon as she’s finished just so I’m not tempted. Wheat doesn’t agree with me, and I haven’t eaten toast for years…why start now?! Thanks Lacie!! 🙂

So for now I’m going to have the Sukrin bread instead. It was so easy to make!
I literally added 250ml of water to the mixture then baked in the oven for 1 hour and 20 mins. They even provide the tray for you to bake it in!

The bread is low carb, gluten free, dairy free and made from seeds. I’ll definitely be buying this again and perhaps add some raisins or sultanas into the mixture to make it more of a sweet treat.

Today I’ve stuck to around 1400 calories again and weighed myself just to see how I was getting on. There was a slight shift…61.4kg rather than 61.5kg. It’s not alot but at least it’s going in the right direction!
