A few treats this week mostly due to eating out and giving into temptation! I'm not feeling too bad about it though as I didn't binge like I usually would. I don't have any plans to eat out this coming week so hopefully I'll manage to stay on plan even more - fingers crossed! Lately I've been enjoying salads made up of spinach, rocket, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado & feta. I'm not usually a salad lover so I'll probably sicken myself of it soon enough... You'll probably notice I eat the same things over & over, day in,  day out. Does anyone else do this? Eat something obsessively until you can't stand the sight of it any more?

EXERCISE


Monday - Insanity class. (No yoga til the end of the month as my teacher is on holiday!)
Tuesday - Kettlebells & personal training. Dropped body fat % (albeit a tiny amount but more than I'd expected!) & gained back the muscle mass I'd lost. :)
Wednesday - HIIT & Weights.
Thursday - Insanity class.
Friday - Metafit.
Saturday - Rest day.
Sunday - HIIT & weights.

In amongst my training plans this week I found a scrap of paper with some measurements scribbled on it. These were the results from the very first time my PT weighed me, well over a year ago now. I hadn't realised that I've actually increased my muscle mass by a whole 9lbs since then!! Mental. I'm too busy focusing on my ever fluctuating body fat % that I hadn't even noticed the progress I'd made there. My overall weight is roughly the same as it was that first time but I've lost fat & gained just over half a stone of muscle. I'm making it my mission to make it to the whole stone!

  1. Well done on the muscle gaining-how exciting!!!! I got the Kayla Itsines workouts and meal plan and did my first workout today. It was mental! My body hurts so much right now I cant even walk up the stairs. Food-wise all I can say is we both love porridge, I have it every single day :)
