I can honestly say that this 21 day challenge has been brilliant for keeping me on track.
I’ve kept to my calorie allowance nine days out of ten (well 16 out of 19), worked out or walked every day and am really noticing a difference with my physique.
My husband has also been away for three days and usually I would see it as an opportunity to eat whatever I wanted but I’ve been extremely focused and had a small piece of Lindor chocolate when wrapping some Xmas presents on Friday night (day 17).But that’s allowed right?!
Today, I’ve been out for a short and sharp run (4 miles in 30ish minutes) followed by a walk into town with Lacie. That’s my fasted cardio done!
I then had a three egg omelette with cheese and bacon as a late breakfast, followed by some Sukrin low carb bread for lunch with goats cheese and a pot of Morello Cherry CO YO.
For dinner I had a carrot, apple & lemon juice with a handful of spinach. I really fancied a juice, after Watching Jason Vale’s ‘Super Juice Me‘ documentary last night – I’ve been truly inspired by it. I’ve been on one of his retreats and have forgotten just how amazing you feel after having a juice!
I’m definitely going to have one every day and may even do a week long juice detox. We’ll see! I just hate making them and washing the juicer up!
Tomorrow I have a gym workout planned first thing and then I’ll probably take Lacie out for a walk in the afternoon. USA Pro sent me some of their amazing new workout clothes and I actually can’t wait to put them on in the morning and work out. It’s amazing how new gym clothing can be so motivating!
Ok, I’m now on a MISSION to get down to 58kg. Lacie is 9 months now, and I have my sisters wedding in about 4 weeks. I have a gorgeous dress to wear and I want to feel simply amazing!
I’ve been hovering around 61kg for the last few months…it’s so annoying, so I’ve written myself a 21 day eating plan that I’m going to stick to and see if I can sort this out once & for all.
I started yesterday and day one went really well.
I did a met-con session in the morning based around 400m sprints & high rep (50 to be exact!) squats, press ups, deadbugs and back pulls and ate well too.
I had a high protein breakfast with a handful of almonds, some soup and chicken pieces for lunch, a Slender Blend protein shake and 1/2 banana with coconut milk and then salmon and veggies for dinner. My whole day totalled around 1400 calories – not that I’m a big calorie counter but it’s good to check in every now and then as it’s easy to not realise how much you are eating!
Keep checking in to see how I’m getting on. I will be posting every day for 21 days….
