Where did the weekend go?…
Just a recap on a couple of days I have missed.
Friday Day 5 – My excuses got the better of me and at 5.15am I hit the snooze button and there was no Spin Class on Friday for me! Definitely need to work on early mornings JFDI in Week 2. The day was a bit so, so, business working lunch was difficult (I ate a club sandwich) and was starving for the rest of the day. Dinner was a repeat of Chicken Biriyani – great fast meal and very filling (sorry no photo).
Saturday Day 6 – Morning cycling yeah!! after a two week break (due to weather and my cold) back on my bike. Great ride (only 35kms) and a bit of a struggle, but did it and burnt 1,200 calories. That is what I love about cycling – big calorie burn. Last night’s dinner included a glass of wine and the yummy “I can’t believe it’s not Butter Chicken”! Just love this dinner. and as it was SSS day, I had a slice of homemade apple pie (nom, nom).
Sunday Day 7 – After a terrible weather on Saturday in Auckland, the rain cleared and we were out again – this time 46kms – WooHoo and 1,450 calories burnt :). Dinner was Baked fish and chips in the oven with cold slaw. Sorry I ate my dinner and then remembered I hadn’t taken a photo hehehe.
SO THE WRAP UP OF WEEK 1
Fails – My workouts at the gym – one for the week – WTF. So trained three times this week. The following: 1 Spin Class/ 1 road bike ride 35kms/1 road bike ride 46kms. So what have I planned for week 2 – Monday night a Body Balance Class, Tuesday PT session, Wednesday Spin Class and Thursday PT session. All in the diary.
Successes: Cooked all my meals, made my lunch, drank my water!! Weekend cycling! No Potato Chips!! Week 1 weigh in – a 600gms loss.
What I learnt week one – I need to be organised and know what I am having to eat each day, get into Robot mode and JFDI. Never, ever let the teenager out! Be consistent! This is not time to allow the guard down and allow myself to have food that has not been planned. I have learnt I know I can not be trusted to just have one. No potato chips (not even one).
And the light bulb moment – I started the week struggling to consume 1.5 litres of water, but by Friday I was drinking 2 litres and not having trouble drinking water at all. Drinking water certainly has helped curb my appetite this week.
So that is the week. Ready for week two and goal is to get my training me.
Have a great week – Gayle
