For somebody who doesn't like ice cream I've been eating a hell of a lot of it this week! Onwards and upwards.
Monday - Insanity class.
Tuesday - Kettlebells & metafit.
Wednesday - Hurt my back the night before so took a rest day.
Thursday - Early morning PT. Insanity class in the evening.
Friday - Metafit followed by weights.
Saturday - Rest day.
Sunday - Weights.
My muscle mass is up to 7.4st! Just 1lb away from my 1st target. My PT is on holiday this week but has set me the challenge to be down to 21% body fat by the time he returns. I can't believe I'm not there already, considering my usual challenge is under 20%, but I only have myself to blame. I can't help it, I just love to eat!
How's your week of nutrition and training been? Better than mine I hope!
