Monday 27th January
So it’s been AGES since I updated… been too busy being happy and having a lovely Christmas. Turns out the right person is the key to being happy… not numbers on a scale :D. HOWEVER, that said, we have just booked a springtime holiday and it would be nice to be looking my best so a little bit of ‘maintaining healthy habits’ can’t be a bad thing 😉
SO… this morning I started out with fruit, yogurt and oats before snacking on an apple and a cup of tea during break time.
– Activia raspberry yogurt, oats and 1 nectarine (290)
– Apple and Tea (130)
Lunch was a quick and easy Uncle Ben’s rice and sauce with another apple and more tea. Later on I snacked on a duck sushi pack in town.
– Uncle Ben’s Rice and Sauce (370)

I also had a cheeky mini cheesecake bite as a bedtime snack 😉

TOTAL CALS: 1690
Today’s exercise was one of the big ones… INSANITY! My least favourite workouts of all time (ie. the hardest 😉 ) Now usually I’m not one to shy away from tough workouts; I’ll lift heavy until I literally can’t move anymore and I happily ran marathons before my leg operation stopped me from road running… but these workouts just fill me with dread. The sheer speed and frenetic nature of them terrify me. Nevertheless they are an unavoidable part of my program and so I push through. Today, luckily, was one of the (marginally) easier ones. And by that I simply mean slightly shorter. Pure Cardio. I felt like I did a good job although I had to push pause a few times to take a few breaths in between exercises. Later on I went and did some gymnastics training… trying to get some of my old moves back 😉 .
– INSANITY DELUX PURE CARDIO (40 MINS)
