I hope you have a good day! We have wonderful weather in Germany at the moment. Really warm and sunny. I am in such high spirits that I already know I will have a hard time focusing on my work today.
But am here for an update about my New Body Makeover Challenge. So what happened in the last two weeks since my last update?
New Body Makeover Challenge – the lost weeks
I was in London and you’ve already seen what and how much I ate during my trip. When I came back home there was no motivation to go back to my eating scheme and I had not prepared a meal plan to follow. So I thought I could ditch another week and just go with whatever I fancy. On Saturday I celebrated my birthday with my friends and next to too many taco chips I had a few fizzy sugary cocktails. I had a great time on Saturday and a crap time on Sunday. As an epitome of my indulgence I had a pizza on Sunday for lunch. AND THAT WAS TOO MUCH! I felt like a huge balloon of rubbish and almost couldn’t fall asleep in the evening as my stomach was so nauseous.
The good thing about the whole situation is that this was exactly what I needed to see sense. Until I complete the half-marathon I will have to be a bit stricter. I am only out 5 weeks today and if I want to do this in the best way possible I will work on this hard now. No excuses anymore. it’s so ridiculous that I trap relapse into old habits so easily when I know how much better I feel when I don’t!
Though I am not a religious person I make advantage of the fast and will cut back on some unhealthy food sources out for the next 5 weeks. And I will make a huge effort to stop the constant snacking. I am not talking the necessary pre-workout I-collapse-when-I-do-not-eat snacks but this unnecessary almost unconscious nibbling. I allow one satisfying snack per day and that’s it period!
So let’s get us some lists!
So I sat down and worked out a meal plan for this week:
- I tried to focus on light meals
- I still try to keep my veggie intake hight
- I am struggling to get enough protein so I included a few (mainly post workout) protein based meals
What I cut out during the fast:
- Sweets (chocolate, sugar, artificial sweeteners, honey)
Goals for week #8:
- Stick to my 5 workouts including 2x soccer practice, 1 power plate training, 1 long run, 1 cross-country run
- Stick to my meal plan
- Follow my fast plans
- STOP WITH THE SNACKING!!!
Let’s see how I will cope this week! Now it’s coffee time. My guilt free pleasure 🙂
Though this is not a week in review but one in preview I am linking up with my fellow list maker Meghan. Am am sure she appreciates any list 😉
Happy Monday you all! Have a great start to the week lovelies!
