It took me a bit to get back in the groove w/ my muy thai session this morning but I was so happy to be back & energetic! Nutrition was NOT on point the past couple of days but will rectify that starting tomorrow! Have a great weekend everyone!
Does anybody else feel like a complete dumbass doing the scoop push up? Just curious. If i could only post a few videos I am sure it would entertain you all for days 🤣🤣🤣
After 10 VERY L O N G days of no exercise & sparse eating, I am back in action! YES!! Energy is HIGH & so thankful for my health! Something we all take for granted I think! Felt a bit weak this morning during my workout but that is to be expected! All in all, thrilled to be back & feeling 100%. Ready to kill the next 33 days! Have a great week everyone!!🙌💪
Soooo, turns out I got a nasty skin infection (cellulitis) that has had me super sick since my last muy thai session. Had to have a procedure to have it fixed & now cannot exercise @ all until it is fully healed. Between the infection in my system & the super strong antibiotics, food has not been my friend since Thursday. So, back to dr tomorrow to see what the prognosis is. Needless to say, I have defo hit a speedbump. However, this too shall pass. When I start to feel sorry for myself I remind myself of my good friends who have passed on from cancer. They had it far worse & far longer. Temporarily sick or not, I am blessed bc I am ALIVE & surrounded by people I love & who love me! Grateful & thankful despite the hiccup. Taking the opportunity to reset, regroup & heal. I’ll be back in full action as soon as I get the go ahead. Will make sure food is on point as soon as I can keep it down again 🤢 until then, its bananas, broth, rice & applesauce. Yummy 😋 😬🙌 hope everyone else is having a better week!!
Always a highlight to my week. No matter how good of shape you think you are in cardiovascularly, this sport humbles me EVERY TIME. I am not generally a “scale” person but i stepped on the scale today for a halfway check if you will. I am down almost 4kg which is awesome! Great motivation to absolutely shred the second 1/2 of the program! Lets go get ‘em peeps!! 💪🙌
Took the boys to Dubai to visit some friends for the night! Took a 7k beach jog for free cardio day & it was awesome scenery! Except for a few drinks last night w/ dinner, I managed to stay on the nutrition track! Big WIN inthe books! 1/2 way there team! 💪
My sons had a birthday party 🥳 today @ the ice skating ⛸ rink. I knew I had 2 hrs to kill while waiting for them so I grabbed my trusty kenzai bag w/ all my goodies in it, found a shady spot & got my workout in 💪 killed 2 birds w/ one stone & will now have a bit more free time later in my day! #noexcuses
Anniversary dinner tonight so looking forward to that!! Hope you all have a great weekend!
Coleslaw w/ 1/2 avocado 🥑 & 120g shrimp 🍤 drizzled in balsamic vinagrette & scooped up w/ 2 tortillas! YUM 😋
Hi all! Looking forward to another week of egg white, fruit & yogurt dinners! Makes dinner super easy planning wise & I can cook whatever else for the family! Workouts going well! Enjoying everything & today I substituted a 2.5 mile fast run for the skips. My 16th wedding anniversary coming up on Thursday followed by a full week of mid term break for the kids. I am sure I will indulge on my anniversary but we are staying here for termbreak so should be pretty easy to stay on nutrition plan! Have a great week everyone!
Today was my muy thai day & let me tell you—it is one hell of a workout. As you can see in this photo, I was D O N E at the completion of this round! Training & diet absolutely on point this week.b. Feeling great! Having trouble getting my final 200g of veggies in @ night though as I am eating my egg white /apple/ banana / yogurt dinner @ about 8 & then i am not hungry again b4 bed😳😳😳 willtry to eat dinner earlier to make room for those grams over the next 4 days! Hope you are all doing well 🙌🥊
Called in for reenforcements today as I taught my spin class first & KNEW I would need some extra motivation to power through this workout! The gas ⛽️ went out on my stovetop last night so I had to cook my egg whites in the microwave 🤢 i do not suggest this method if you have the option. My poached egg turned out much nicer this morning! But alas, the “gas man” arrived with a new tank so I am good to go for today 🙌 tonight’s eggs will taste much nicer i am sure! Have a great day team Chestnut! 💪👊
It was 87 degrees this morning w/ a LOVELY breeze! Dare I say it actually felt COMFORTABLE to be outside this morning! For that reason, I absolutely ENJOYED my workout today! I substituted 10 x 250m hill sprints, 250m downhill recovery for my jumps & burned almost 300 calories so i think that was a great sub. The lesson resonated w/ me as this past weekend was my son’s 11th birthday & I might have allowed my indulgence 200 calories to turn into 2 complete meals, drinks & birthday 🎂 😳😳😳 workouts are NEVER the problem for me but I need to dial the nutrition in tight! I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted as long as I was working out but since my 42nd birthday, that is no longer true! Back on the nutrition wagon today & pushing for a CLEAN week! Have a great one everybody!!🙌
