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:
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!
Happy Bank Holiday Monday!
We’ve had a lovely weekend, with lots of RnR. Last week was great, though a busy week at work meant that my training wasn’t quite a planned I’m afraid. We had no WAR on Monday, but I did a double class on Tuesday: stability class is getting tougher using weights, medicine ball and increased reps with every week. This was followed by PiYo stretch and flow, which I really love. I missed Jog Scotland on Wednesday and I also missed Thursday night PiYo. Here’s hoping for a calmer week this week, with more of my regular routine.
Have a good week, all!
Sorry, another Monday has hurtled by and is drawing to a close. I’ve only just sat down, and realised very quickly that I hadn’t blogged yet. Oops!
Quick summary of last week:
Monday- 12,500 steps, no class as WAR was cancelled (Jacqui was celebrating her anniversary!)
Tuesday- stability ball class followed by PiYo Stretch and Flow. The stability class is building, and we are now adding weights and medicine balls to help with core strength and balance. I’m really enjoying it!
Wednesday- Jog Scotland, 4 miles in total. Ace!
And that’s it, I’m afraid: work and a very busy weekend meant I didn’t do much else. But I did what I could, and I’m happy with that. I’m running the Great Scottish Run half marathon in two weeks, and I’m very light on training, but I’ll walk if I have to- I’m not going to be too precious.
