Happy Monday! Is that even possible?
Yes, I am pretty happy today!
I sucessfully got up early and
hauled forced myself out of bed and got to the gym at about 6am!
I am really glad I did as I feel really good today! It is true what they say that you never regret a workout!
I definitely don’t regret this one! Check my figures out:
I am really happy to learn that I have actually been burning more cals than I thought!
I did 20 minutes (5 minutes walking, 15 minutes running with a 1% incline) on the treaddy and 10 minutes on the summit climber, plus my core weights training.
Tomorrow is weigh in day and I have everything crossed that I will get a loss!
I have been fairly well behaved on the food front, although we had tea at M’s parent’s house last night and it was Lasagna and Apple crumble with Custard!!! I have no idea how many calories that it was and we also didn’t have any salad or veggies served with it either, so I can’t even say I ate a huge amount of veg!! Oh well I’ll just have to be super disciplined today and hope that my workout this morning will make up for last night’s tea!!
P has seemed to handle childcare a bit better on Friday so fingers crossed he will be ok this week! It really breaks your heart when you leave him there and he is hysterical! He also was crying before we got into the car which made things difficult! Hoping this week will be better!
I haven’t been getting to the gym or doing much exercise lately, which is not great. We are in week 8 of our 12 week challenge and so far I have lost 1.7kg! I think my goal was 7 kilos but cannot remember. We have a photo shoot in 2 weeks time which is meant to be celebrating our weight loss and it is going to suck if I have not lost much weight! So what am I going to do? Well firstly I am going to commit to working out in the morning Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (This of course depends if M is starting early or not) Tuesday nights I am going to go back to Pilates and on Saturday and Sunday I am going to do some form of exercise whether it is a walk with P and Chili or going to the gym or doing my workout game. Food wise I am going to have to be soooo good I really would love to get to 70 kilos soon and fit into a size 12!!! So going to be having a lot of salads, soups and healthy dinners.
My food has been great today I had porridge with apple and cinnamon and for morning tea I just had two small mandarin’s but I’m still feeling a bit peckish so I might have some yoghurt.
Lunch today will be soup with toast and Dinner tonight is meatballs with spaghetti and salad. Since having my new nutritional scales it has been so easy to work out how many calories are in meals that I make. Before a lot of the time I was just guessing or looking it up on the internet. Now I can be much more accurate and it’s great! Sure, it is time consuming but I would so much rather take a few extra minutes and know for sure instead of guessing!
Well my stomach is grumbling and there is washing to be hung out to dry so I better make a move!
Till next time…..
