Today was my birthday and I have to be honest and say that I indulged in a bit of cake today. You only turn 37 once haha.
These felt so painful today. The minute felt like 10!!! I got through it though and feel good for it.
My son turned 7 today and so we asked him what he would like for supper. The toss up was between a takeaway curry (which he loves) or going out. Thankfully for me he chose to go out to a place where I was able to have salmon and vegetables. It's actually quite difficult to find something on a menu that is plain, without any added sauces etc. I felt quite proud of myself for choosing something that was completely within the allowances of the diet.
The BEACH!!! haha no, jokes aside I just thought it would be a good one to do to see what I can achieve in 4 weeks. It is also pre summer, sort of!? I say that but it is currently pouring with rain outside and the sun definitely does not have its hat on.
Workout done!! I didn’t think I’d sweat as much as I did but it felt great. I’ve had two weeks or so of doing pretty much nothing except gardening haha. Definitely time to start working out again. I have asked my husband to get on the healthy eating band wagon which makes my life easier plus I have home support aswell as online. Looking forward to the next 4 weeks and can’t wait to see what we can achieve.
Super late graduation post GRADUATION POST
I loved KB2 although I really struggled in the last two weeks. I was put on a waiting list to do a course that was full and two weeks before it was due to start they had a cancellation so I was put on it. The week of the course I did well keeping up with the exercise and food although I felt completely exhausted from waking up so so early and only getting to bed very late. That week went straight into a week where we flew to my mom and dads and celebrated 3 big birthdays. My diet wasn't what it should have been and so the end was not as good as it could have been. I would love to do KB2 again as I really saw a difference in muscle tone and weight loss even though the scale did not move a great deal. I also love being in a training regime because it keeps me accountable as well as having the support of everyone. There really is nothing like having a group around you that are all going through the same thing.
Last week was super long and tiring although very productive. The weekend was no less busy as we flew to see my mom and dad and celebrate my dads 70th and my sisters 40th birthday. Huge apologies for the late blog. My mind has been so over occupied.
I’m on a sports massage therapy course this week which has me up at 5am and home around 8pm each night. Needless to say I’m a little exhausted mainly because I’m not used to that routine. I’m keeping at it and am also completing my workouts. Counting down the days until Saturday when I can have a lie in.
Honestly, that seems like nothing!! Surely it’s not ending that soon?? I’m not sure I’m ready for that, I’ve only just started seeing some changes.
I went swimming today with my kids. It’s cold in the UK so I’m usually covered up with a big jumper or something. When I got into my costume yesterday and looked in the mirror I could see quite a big difference in my arms and chest area where it looks a lot leaner and more defined. So glad there’s some changes going on.
Interestingly enough, I seem to be aching more after the exercises than I have been. This is great and enjoying the feeling. Maybe I’m focusing more as I do them.
Apologies guys, this week got so busy. My husband also bought back these incredible cookies and I ate waaaayyyy too many. The last two days have been back on track so I'm grateful for that.
I held off on my indulgence so I could take it on Saturday. I was at an event and they had a buffet style lunch so I was able to relax and not worry too
much. They had cold meat, sandwiches, salad etc so I took a mix. It wasn’t the best indulgence I could have gone for but it was a needs must situation.
After a full weekend of not doing workouts today I managed to do it but walked instead of skipped. My chest is still not great but I felt slightly more normal this morning so was able to get it done. I hugely dislike being sick and normally I can push through but I really couldn’t.
My daughter also has a chest infection so she is feeling moany and not wanting to do anything except lie on me.
Looking forward to the week ahead and to feeling much better.
I think I’ve finally succumb to all the sickness that has been doing the rounds. Two of my children are not well and today I started with it. I managed to do the workout this morning although I don’t think that helped me so not sure how tomorrow will go. I’ve eaten very little today because I just couldn’t stomach anything. We are in need of some sun and warmth to get rid of all the bugs either that or I need to isolate us all until it’s gone.
