So hungry and it’s not even 11am :( I had a huge breakfast too :(
I had a complete change of plan last night in regards to working out. I had to work late so I didn’t get out of here until about 5.35pm, which of course didn’t help my goal to do an hour cardio. So I scrapped that, because I didn’t want to be home too late. I ended up doing 45mins (10 mins on the bike, 30 mins treadmill, 5 mins on the side to side steppy thing - never been on one before, but it was good!). I managed to leave at 6.45 in time to catch the 7pm bus, except I failed and the 7pm bus doesn’t exist haha. So I ended up having to wait 30 mins in the cold for the next bus :( BOO! I could have done that extra 15 mins :/ I must learn to plan better.
So it was a late night again last night, I didnt end up eating dinner til 9pm because I had a lot of food prep to do.
Anyway, the exciting thing is, I ended up running for 8 mins straight on the treadmill. I cannot even tell you the last time I did that! Usually I run for a minute and walk for a minute (mainly because intervals are better for fitness, and I am lazy haha). I walked for a minute or two and then did 6 minutes at my half marathon pace, not too shabby! Oh and then finished off at a 10kms a hour pace. Sweaty.
No working out for me tonight because I have a dinner and I was not going to have enough time to work out, shower and bus. I could possibly run at home though if I have enough time? Nah, I will just enjoy my rest day.
Peanut butter is my life.
I did good this weekend! I was good on Friday, I measured on Saturday, I ate ate ate on cheat day, I didn’t stray from the plan yesterday, YAY! My only prob is that I didn’t workout all weekend, but to be honest, my body needed some rest. I can’t go too hard out all the time.
Cheat was goooood. So good. I may have gone a little nuts even though I didn’t mean to, but all good.
I’ll share the dinner I made last night after this, it was so good. I’m pretty much having it all week haha. Well not quite, but for a couple of meals.
I am not going to make as much progress as last week this week as I have dinner at a friend’s house and I can’t control what I will be eating. Hopefully it’s not too far off the diet. I know a friend is bringing dessert, so I shall have to have a little, but I will try not to eat too much.
Plan is to do some cardio and weights tonight. Then have tomorrow off because too complicated trying to do gym and dinner out. Wed is some cardio/yoga. More cardio/weights on Thursday. Pilates or a run on Saturday. I hope the weather is nice this weekend so I can go on a nice long walk. I feel like a long walk.
Right now I am currently starving and hoping this last half hour before lunch flies by!
Didn’t go to Pilates as it was raining cats and dogs and my friend and I both agreed we didn’t want to go out, but little did we know the rain would pass and it was sunny by the time the class would have started! Oh well I did 4 sessions this week, good enough for me.
Will think about going for a walk tomorrow if its not hosing down and I have some time.
Weight: down 1.5kgs
Waist: down 1 cm
Hips: down 2 cms
Thigh: down 0.5 cm
Body fat %: up 0.6%
Weird body fat. Those scales are fucked. Oh well, going on measurements alone that was a good week - yay! Just stick with it Angela - you can do it!
This is how Sooty sleeps now, face buried in my lap. I don’t know why or how he breathes! Weird cat.
Thank god! I finished off a majorly boring work week with 50 mins cardio at le gym. I was going to do an hour, but then I would have had to wait another 20 mins for bus instead of being bang on - so I capped it at 50. My feet were getting sore anyway - something about those elliptical machines hurts my feet, it wasn’t just my Nike frees! Might try the bike next time, hopefully my nerve doesn’t play up.
So a successful week of slow carb and exercise. The only cheat I had was a couple of tablespoons of natural yoghurt and a few chip crumbs this afternoon. I did 4 exercise sessions with another planned for tomorrow (oh god Pilates is going to kill me, my core sucks).
Thank god for cheat day tomorrow, the only thing I am really dying for is a flat white!!! Lucky I will be in the vicinity of Espresso Workshop in Britomart, who make the best coffee. I am thinking maybe a fruit bagel/muffin/toast for breakfast and a cafe lunch.
Then josh and I have a dinner thing to attend where we have to bring food, so I am making a caramelised onion and feta tart and some raspberry and chocolate brownies. Mmm maybe I will try the new orange and ginger ciders too. No hangover though, sets me off course!
Right now I’m off home to cook Josh a homemade burger and a steak for myself. Bitchin.
