This is why I never get anywhere with my belly issues!

As you can see I eat a lot. Told you a full food diary might get boring! I do most of my food shop on a Sunday for the week ahead so I end up repeating meals quite a few times until it's all used up. On days that I'm doing lots of exercise I'll snack more, but always try to pick the right thing depending on time/type of exercise. Obviously the chocolate is not part of the plan... The snacks are spread throughout the day before anyone thinks I'm eating them all in one go haha! This Thursday I got weighed at PT & am chuffed to have lost 5lb in total! 2lb of that was muscle though so my PT has reduced the cardio from my plan to make more room for weights. 

EXERCISE



Monday - Insanity class and yoga.
Tuesday - Kettlebells and the crappiest metafit in the world - a double matrix! Kill me.
Wednesday - Followed my PT plan at the gym.
Thursday - Personal training & insanity class. Think I got my mojo back this evening!
Friday - Rest/cheat day.
Saturday - Kettlebells & metafit.
Sunday - Weights at the gym (using my new PT plan this time.)
