A New Me For Christmas:Week Six

  

After a very poor week last week I’m back in full swing, which to be honest has been prompted a little with the fact I have a night out at the end of the week.

As im sure is the same with most of you, nights out are rare so I always like to try and look and feel my best as I’m never sure when the next opportunity will be!

I’ve trained everyday even if it has been a quick 20 mins in the front room.  My diet has been good in the whole apart from a couple of chocolate slip ups!!

I am however trying to take a different approach to food as it is something I really enjoy so if I really fancy a treat I’m going to have a little as life is to short to not have a little of what you fancy!

A New Me For Christmas:Week Two

Well I had lots of good intentions when I started my journey this week but didn’t make quite the progress I had planed for my goals this week.

Number four and I were both ill at the beginning of last week so that mixed with a change in crèche times at the gym left me with a limited time to train.

I still managed to fit in three sessions indoors.  One kettlebell session, and two tabata training sessions.


Tabata is a fantastic way to train if you are pushed for time.  You work hard for 20 secs and then rest for 10.  This process is repeated 8 times.  The exercises I chose to perform were jumping lunges, burpee jumps, mountain climbers and squat jumps.

My diet was a lot better than it has been and I only had a couple of small slip ups.  One with a Galaxy bar that was calling my name one evening, and I couldn’t resist a piece of sponge pudding with my Sunday lunch.

A typical day for me has been:

  • Porridge with raisins and a drizzle of honey
  • Bowl of raspberries
  • Chicken, rye bread and salad
  • Handful of grapes
  • Tomato based chicken curry with small portion of basmati rice
