another weekend... in the gym #6


FOOD

I've been a busy bee in the kitchen again this week. I've made almond butter cups (recipe coming soon!), chia seed banana bread, goodness bowls a la The Good Life Eatery, baked eggs and my fave roasted cauliflower casserole with turkey mince. This morning's baked banana, blueberry and walnut oatmeal was pretty epic! Again I've been eating well 80% off the time, snacking on nuts and cucumber or rice cakes with houmous, but I did slip up towards the end of the week with a cookie feast and my first buttery since Christmas time! I'm learning not to beat myself up about it though. If I let the guilty feelings take over then I'm left feeling depressed and craving even more crap!

Just Do It Nike Climbing Bennachie

EXERCISE

Monday - 6.30am Boxercise, followed by climbing Bennachie with Gordon and Harley and then a 6pm metafit class. We did the "olympian 2012" track which is luckily one of my faves!
Tuesday - Circuits in the morning and kettlebells in the evening! Bought my own 8kg kettlebell now so there's no excuses!
Wednesday - Rest day. Still finding that I eat more crap on days off. And am also moodier.
Thursday - Early morning metafit! My trainer is now a certified Insanity instructor so Epic has now been changed to an Insanity class, which I loved! I didn't love the pain in my glutes the next day.
Friday - Had a personal training sesh in the morning. Super chuffed to find out I've lost 2% body fat, gained 2.5lbs of muscle & got my metabolism back to that of a 13 year old! I just need to carry on and get under that elusive 20%.
Saturday - Rest day.
Sunday - Dragged Gordon along to the gym and burned just under 500 calories doing my new training plan. I love having someone else to work with - this is the 1st time we've been to the gym together in years but hopefully it'll become more regular :)

  1. I am amazed by your commitment. I was impressed at myself for going to the gym for 45 minutes a few times a week. I have much to learn!

    Keep it up! :)
