Ola everybody! And a happy Monday to those of ya’ll in Aus. It feels like only yesterday that I was typing away my last update but nevertheless I am still excited to share with you guys how my week went. Lets get to it!
This weeks stats:
Waist Circumference: 63.00cm
Macros 5x per week: 110 P, 120 C, 40 F
Macros 2x per week: 110 P, 170 C, 30 F
Cardio: 36, 15 second intervals with a 1 min 45 second rest in between. I split these over 3 sessions and do 12 intervals each time on the spinner bike. 3, 30 min MISS sessions on the stepper.
The week in a nutshell was pretty damn good! I had a taper week on my program which was much needed and it has put me in a really good frame of mind coming into this week. I smashed my sessions and made sure I took some solid time to plan out my meals each day. As I showed you and wrote above, overall macros were reduced this week and most days I struggled hitting those EXACT numbers (mostly protein, I find it easy to eat more than 110g) BUT I made sure each day I was consistent with my overall calorie numbers. One of the days which was supposed to be my normal day pretty much turned into a high carb day because I was super (like really) damn hungry… in times like that, I think its okay to bend the rules a little in regards to which day you have when. At the end of the week your total amount of calories is still going to be the same so why let it stress you? Answer: you don’t!
Here’s to wishing I was allowed to lat flare on stage…
I also had Sunday off work this week because we went and did Operation Blackhawk which is basically a different version of Tough Mudder, Spartan Race etc BUT only 7 k’s. Was super fun (also super cold) because I got to do it with a real good group of people! My parents even came along and had a HEAP of fun.
Earlier this week I was lucky enough to attend and help instruct a cooking class for a group of young girls! We decided to make San Choy Bow with pulled chicken as it is super healthy, versatile and fun to make. I am beyond pleased to say that regardless of the fact that ALOT of them hadn’t tried/didn’t like some ingredients, they all gave it a go and all but 3 came back for seconds… SUCCESS! It was a really good experience for me and I left the session with a really big smile on my goofy face.
I haven’t tried to hide the fact that this process is getting really hard. I find myself getting to the end of the day and just wanting to eat and sleep, that’s all! It made me realize that the little things, meal prep for example, are SO crucial in times like this. The last thing I want to do when I get home from training is cook! So coming into this week (short week luckily), I decided I would try and cook as much as possible, without my food going bad, of course. Now for what I am eating… you shall see on Thursday! I’m actually going to photograph two days worth of food this week, one on my normal day and one of my high carb day so you can all see how it differs depending what day of the week it is! STAY TUNED!
Little baby leg lines coming in
Hammy lines (in super good lighting, mind you)
AND can we all just appreciate how happy my puppy is going to the dog park!
OK, enough photos haha! Here is to another good week (fingers crossed), will keep you all updated though regardless and see you on Thursday for my ‘What I Ate’ edition, right?! Right… see you then!
