Day 6

It’s Saturday so changing things around a little today.

I did my workout at 10am.
Spinning Bike HIIT 20mins.
Did some good sprints in this today.

Push ups, Sit ups, & Dips
10 x push ups
10 x sit ups
10 x dips
5 sets

I did all 5 sets. The last set of push ups were still tough.
But feels amazing to have done it!

Tonight we’re out for dinner for a friend’s birthday so I had to eat earlier.

I had usual meal at 10:45am.

 

Day 5

Sad day today as it was the funeral of a local neighbour.

So I was hard pressed for time. I was also in charge of our Jack Russell dog; Pumpkin. So instead of spinning bike I took her for a long walk. Yeah, I know it’s not the same but needs must.

So no workout today and to be honest I ache all over so not a bad thing to have a day’s rest.

I ate at 3:40pm in the end. And I was ravenous!

Usual eggs, avocado and toast with strawberries.

Dinner was chicken breast, whole wheat pasta and broccoli.

I had 1 protein bar for a snack.

Total cals – 1,408 😃👍🏻

 

Day 4

So the fasting was really tough this morning. I was starving by 11am.

All I have each morning is lots of water. I use a filter to remove the chlorine and other stuff. And I drink a cup or 2 of black, Nespresso coffee.

Workout – 12:15pm
Honestly, after yesterday I thought there was no way I could do today, but I’m committed.

Spinning Bike HIIT 20mins.
I knew I could at least jump on the spinning bike and do 20mins. Had a great session.
But then something possessed me!

Push ups, Sit ups, & Dips
10 x push ups
10 x sit ups
10 x dips
5 sets

I did all 5 sets. The last set of push ups were so so hard.
But I felt amazing having done it!

I missed out the Plyo boxing. I’m not going to do that. I might get a proper boxing punch bag and add it in in Month 2.

3pm Meal
3 whole eggs fried in coconut oil
2 slice of toast (seedy wholemeal)
Medium Avocado – mushed onto each slice.
Cherry tomatoes
12 Pecan nuts
7 strawberries

Wow! I loved this today and really needed it.

Dinner
Chicken
Peas
Brown Rice

Snacks I went a bit overboard with 2 protein bars and a banana and 13 almonds.

2085 calories but still happy.

Day 3

Today was the first day of adding in training!

I was really excited but apprehensive too. Working out on an empty tank was new to me.

I did the workout at 12 noon.

Workout
Spinning Bike

20mins HIIT
4mins warm up
1 min slow
1 min sprint

It was amazing to sweat bucket loads, but I may have overdone it a bit!

Plyo – Shadow Boxing & Kicking
10mins
This was me punching and kicking for a minute each.

Push ups, sit ups and dips
15 x Push ups,
15 x sit ups
10 x dips
5 sets.

OMG! This was so intense. Got the number of reps so wrong. Last 2 sets nearly killed me so I’ve scaled them back to begin with.

No weight training until Month 2/Day 60. But I tell you what, there’s no way I could have done any, so Justin has got this spot on!

Felt so shattered later on in the evening – I had definitely over done it!

Boy oh boy did my 3pm meal feel amazing. I could almost feel my body digesting it immediately after I’d finished!

3pm will always be the same. (Weekends may be trickier but we’ll see.)

Dinner
Grilled Salmon
Cabbage
Quinoa and Wholegrain Rice

Snacks
2 protein bars
Pink Lady Apple with 12 almonds
Slice of toast with Peanut butter

1,801 calories but had a deficit added for the workout of about 284 cals. So all good.

Day 2

Feeling good today.

I’m down 2lbs already. I’ll update my starting weight etc on the Progress page later on this week.

I consumed 1,621 calories and again managed to go all the way until 3pm before the first meal.

This time I spread the avocado on to the toast and put the eggs on top. It was scrummy!

Dinner was:
Tuna
Chick Pea salad
Tender Stem Broccoli

Snacks were 2 protein bars.

I need some sweet potatoes so they’re on the shopping list.
