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.

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.

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
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.)

Grilled Salmon
Quinoa and Wholegrain Rice

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:
Chick Pea salad
Tender Stem Broccoli

Snacks were 2 protein bars.

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