another weekend... in the gym #3


FOOD

My diet was pretty good most of the week - I made a clean chicken balti with quinoa, Honestly Healthy's stuffed superfood sweet potatoes, chicken fajitas and chia and nut crusted salmon with honey steamed kale, which was epic! I tried figs for the 1st time this week & loved them so they've been in my breakfast quite a lot. By the end of the week I had a bit of a breakdown though and ended up eating half a cheesecake on Friday night. On Saturday our plans changed last minute after Gordon had to fix my Mum's car and we ended up having a Chinese takeaway. It always seems like a good idea until I feel really sick afterwards!


EXERCISE

Monday - I went to boxercise at 6.30am and Metafit after work. Billy has us doing this thing at the end to make a sweat print on the floor to see how hard we worked - look how huge my ass is in mine!
Tuesday - Another early morning class - this time circuits - and kettlebells at night. Went up to an 8kg kettlebell which was hard work but not as bad as I'd expected. I didn't have quite as much control as I do with my 6kg but I'm going to keep at it.
Wednesday - Ran 4.6k after work. It was a good run but I could do without the uphill battle against the wind!
Thursday - Went to a 7am Metafit class and did the new "half pipe" workout again. It's a thigh killer! At night I went to EPIC and did "Combination" which is one round of endless, one round of pure sports, a round of immense abs and then a 5 minute finisher!
Friday - I forced myself to do a 5.6k run from hell. My body was aching and my mind wasn't in the right place but I made it.
Saturday - Rest day, thank God!
Sunday - Did the same PT plan as last week. It didn't feel so hard this time so either I didn't put in as much effort, or I'm actually getting stronger.

I feel like I really pushed my body as hard as I could this week so fingers crossed it pays off, despite my food relapse at the end of the week. How have you been keeping fit?

  4. i wish I was so determined and focused as you are! I spent most of my days eating chocolate cupcakes, chocolate fudge cakes and chocolate cookies (hence the chocolate overdose on my Instagram and weekend posts).
    I have tried to change but no effort :(
