OK. Last week didn’t go to plan. Or to be more precise, last week had no plan. I had a rare week where I did hardly any exercise, and I ate why I liked. Oops.
I am now paying the price for that, feeling a bit rubbish and sluggish, and my jeans are a little too tight for comfort!
So, it’s back on track this week when I can- I do have a really busy week ahead, but I’ve started well today with my eating back on track and a spooky WAR class in the bag 👍🏻
We all have occasional blow outs, but that’s ok if it’s only once in a while, and if we rein it back in.
If this resonates with you, I hope this helps:
Hello! How was your week? Mine was busy, but great fun. We were on holiday, spending three days in Somerset and three days in Edinburgh, so we pretty much covered the country from one end to another!
We did plenty of walking and we enjoyed lots of great food – as well as a few gins 😁
But I’m back to my routine today, so I did my Sunday night food prep so that I could start on track first thing.
Here’s to a new week, and here’s your motivation right here:
So, tell me: how has your week been? You may remember that last week I mentioned that I was doing a 10 day accountability/clean eating challenge, and it finished last Thursday. I really enjoyed the challenge and did well, losing a few centimetres and 2lbs along the way. I also re-established some food prep routines and focussed more on portion control and eating well. What’s not to love?
After a few more lenient days over the weekend, I’m back on track until the end of the week when I’m having a few days away.
I stayed in track with both my eating and my exercise last week, with one exception. I made it to my classes (Monday- WAR, Tuesday- Stability and then Stretch and Flow, Thursday- PiYo) but I wasn’t home in time for JogScotland last Wednesday. I’m hoping to get Running this week, however 👍🏻
Here’s a lesson that really helped me during the 10 day challenge, which I really think is an absolute truth:
Have an ace week!
Hello! How has your week and weekend been?
I’ve been really focussed, on my health, my food and my fitness 👍🏻 Jacqui has been running a 10 day accountability/clean eating challenge which was just what I needed. Thanks Jacqui! It started last Monday, so we are already in day eight and I have loved it.
I’ve focussed on eating well- and cleanly- with no junk, no alcohol, no empty calories, and on staying active. To that end, I went to every class last week, which was great. Here was how my week looked:
Monday- no WAR, but as I reported last week, we did a lovely hill walk during the day instead
Tuesday- Stability ball class and PiYo Stretch and Flow. Doing the Doubler is great!
Wednesday- a wet Jog Scotland run, which I thoroughly enjoyed
Thursday- PiYo signature round, for the first time in ages
Friday- Wii Fit
I didn’t do anything in particular over weekend as we had a quiet weekend planned, and it felt great! On Sunday evening a cold started to appear, but I’m pushing through as best as I can, it explains why I needed some extra R and R this weekend!
When the challenge comes to an end on Wednesday night I’m planning on keeping it on track, but loosening the rules only ever so slightly. I’m excited to check out my measurements on Wednesday night!
Here’s some positivity to help kickstart your week if you need it: Have a great week!
