Nemesis Coaching - 16 Weeks In

Nutrition


I had some pretty bad weeks nutrition wise this month, with a few social events (North Hop, date night at No 10, menu tasting at Adelphi Kitchen!) and my chocolate cravings getting the better of me! Lainey adjusted my macros to give my results a little boost as my measurements have been up and down lately and not really progressing much further, as you can see from the pictures. I'm still trying to fit a few treats into my macros to stop myself feeling deprived so I've been enjoying Lindt dark chocolate melted into my proats, and the odd magnum! Treats aside, I'm trying to fill my plate with veggies and keep drinking at least 2 litres of water a day. My hen weekend is in 2 weeks time so my goal is to stay on track and make some progress by then - I'll keep you updated! One thing I do struggle with is foodie events. It's so hard to enjoy them properly and stay within my macros too. I've actually turned down a few blogger events lately because of this, but I made an exception for the AK Meat Up last Sunday. (Blog post coming soon!)

Not much visible change, other than the lack of tan!

Training

Over the last couple of weeks I've been struggling to fit my training in with everything that's been going on. I've had a serious lack of motivation and haven't even been finding it a stress relief when I'm there! I'm trying to focus on the results I want to achieve to push myself to keep at it. I tried my wedding dress on which should give me a bit of a push too - it's pretty snug at the back and with less than 3 months til the wedding it's now or never! This month's cardio included a horrific 2 hour hilly cycle, a metafit class, a 5k run and a little boxing for my HIIT. I'm starting to worry that my cardio fitness level isn't going to be up to scratch for Tough Mudder next month!


I'm going to do some more frequent progress updates on here over the next month or two as I find breaking my end goal down into smaller pieces will help me stay mentally focused. Plus it keeps me accountable to you guys - posting half naked pictures online for the world to see is bad enough, but it's even worse when there's not even any difference to be proud of!

So two weeks til the henny, then three weeks til Tough Mudder, and then only six weeks til the Big Day! Eleven weeks sounds like a long time until you break it up like that!

  1. I've been following your progress using the Nemesis program, there's definitely a difference in your photos :) I'm following an online PT program myself and i'm into week 7 now. I totally agree that eating out etc is tricky, particularly when it's somewhere you can't scope out the menu first to preempt what choices are available. Looking forward to your next post :)
