It feels good to be back!
Last week was pretty uneventful, I went a bit off the rails food-wise over the weekend but nothing major - few drinks, chocolate covered raspberries, Magnum ice cream, my bodyweight in Yo! Sushi :D
But I also did 3 x 45 minute runs and 2 weights circuit session plus LOTS of walking, I didn't end up having a rest day at all!
Plan for this week is to continue to improve on healthy eating. I'm going to take a tip from Tamzin and introduce a free day once a week. Not a day for me to stuff myself silly with crisps and chocolate but a day to just relax about food and go with the flow really, I'll still count calories since I'm still in my weight loss phase though.
I also plan to run 3 times this week and complete a full body weights workout twice, possibly three times but I struggled to fit it all in last week so I'll see how things go.
Food, I'm being a bit boring in the interests of making it easy and cheap!
Breakfast: Porridge or a smoothie
Morning Snack: Berries with nuts or apple or banana with nut butter
Lunch: Salads with chicken, tuna or prawns with a home-made balsamic, mustard and EVOO dressing, sometimes in a mini pitta pocket or two
Afternoon Snack: Yogurt with seeds and berries or raw veggies with hummus
Dinner: I have my meals planned from Sunday to Sunday but can't remember them off the top of my head so will post when I've eaten them!
Drinks: Moring coffee, probably with syrup, need it to get me started at 6am! Plenty of water and teas.
Other: I received an order from My Protein last week so protein shakes will be back (chocolate orange and cookies & cream, yum!). Green monsters will probably feature as workout fuel. Nakd and 9 Bars for snacks, possibly make some fudge babies. And I bought some lovely cheeses at the weekend so will probably nibble on some of those.
So that's the plan, now for the hard part of sticking to it!
