Feeling Ill but still achieved!
Let's see what the week held for this fatty to fitty PT!!
An extremely busy day and only kept a log of my food, physically active throughout the day but no 'formal' exercise regime.
Breakfast: Chicken breast on GF wholemeal bread, butter.
Lunch: Baked sweet potato with mackerel.
Dinner: Wholegrain rice and quinoa with baked salmon and sugarsnap peas.
Snacks: GF porridge, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, raw cacao and superberries made with hemp milk.
Fluids: Water, herbal teas and 4 coffees.
Another extremely busy day! I ended up training at 8.30pm just to get my #hiit session in.
Tuesdays Hiit Session
6 exercises for 45 seconds with a 15 second rest in between, repeat the cycle 4 times.
- High knees
- Double clean & jerk (2 x 5kg kettlebells)
- Russain twist (1 x 5kg kettlebell)
- Press up
- Renegade rows (2 x 5kg kettlebells)
Breakfast: GF porridge, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, raw cacao and superberries made with hemp milk.
Lunch: Smoked mackerel, spinach, sugarsnap peas, red onion & a little squirt of mayo.
Dinner: Singapore style vermicelli (home made!) - turkey breast, fresh mixed vegetables and rice noodles.
Fluids: Water, herbal tea & 5 coffees.
Felt on fire! Absolutely killed it and nearly myself in the process!! ha ha
Was feeling a little off and tired all day and then WHAM! Felt like I was coming down with whatever I've had over Christmas. Coughing, headache and by the time I went to bed, didn't know if I was coming or going!! I had to make myself eat as the day went on, as really didn't have an appetite.
Lunch: Turkey with sugarsnap peas and wholegrain mexican rice.
Dinner: Turkey with sugarsnap peas and wholegrain mexican rice.
Fluids: Herbal teas, 4 coffees (1 decaffe)
Still not feeling 100% and really struggling as the day goes on, thankfully I was hungry at breakfast and made myself eat. I did get hungry later and treated myself to leftovers from Christmas (don't worry, not naughty though!!) No energy to train today :(
Breakfast: Grilled bacon sandwich on GF seeded bread.
Lunch: GF porridge, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, raw cacao and superberries made with s/s milk.
Dinner: Baked sweet potato with 1 tin tuna, red onion and small squeeze mayo.
Snacks: 2 nakd bars (christmas pudding)
Fluids: 5 coffees and water.
Finally I've been to see the doctor and I've been given a course of antibiotics and told to rest, in my book that means still work but don't train!! I may have to have further tests but I'll find out in 2 weeks when I go for my next appointment. So I really cannot train (frustrated is an understatement!) but I can keep a log of what I'm eating and my stats.
Breakfast: GF porridge, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, raw cacao and superberries made with s/s milk.
Lunch: 2 boiled eggs, 1 small avocado, red onion, tomatoes and a small squeeze of mayo with black pepper.
Dinner: Baked sweet potato with 1 tin tuna, red onion, no mayo.
Fluids: Herbal teas, 3 coffees and water.
Still not feeling too great and decided to treat myself! Not too much though, as I'm not training!!
Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, small avocado, red onion, tomatoes and black pepper, small squeeze of mayo.
Lunch: GF macaroni cheese, very small portion!
Dinner: Turkey stir fry with peppers, onion, tomato, kale, spinach and vermicelli rice noodles.
Snacks: 4 GF chocolate biscuits
Fluids: water, 4 coffees and 1 small glass of rose wine
Think these antibiotics should have kicked in by now! Still not feeling 100% and feeling tired. Today is stats day!! So let's see how I've got on!
Lunch: 2 egg omelette with cheese and onion
Dinner: Roast chicken (breast), roast potatoes, greens, carrots, brocolli and GF gravy.
Fluids: 3 coffees and milk.
- Weight 78.5kg
- Bodyfat 41%
- Lean 25.1%
- BMI 26.5
- Waist 93cm
- Hips 109cm
So considering I have only trained once this week and my eating isn't majorly strict. My aim is to eat clean with a few treats here and there! I haven't fared too badly! Now here is the part that I keep telling all my clients........ stop worrying about what the scales tell you!! You need to look at the overall picture and weight is only one measurement that you should look at and definitely not on it's own. Yes, I've lost 1.4kg since last week but take a look at my waist and hip measurements.... I have lost 6cm off both! The rest of my stats have barely changed at all but that will follow. As a rule I wouldn't weigh and measure myself every week but I know you all want to know whats happening here!
So think about what you want to achieve. Are you looking to get fitter and lose inches/cms? Can you cut out some of the processed unclean foods that you eat? Do you want to train? Would you like my help to achieve this? Get in touch if you do.
Good luck and we'll touch base on Fatness to Fitness next week!
