YES! This week has been amazing. I finally feeling motivated and happy and strong.
I went to the gym four times, Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and did a leg workout at home on Wednesday.
I also did 3 arm workouts at the gym and one leg workout and lots of abs over the week, so I’m finally getting back into weights which is what I’ve been banging on about for SO LONG but I’ve not actually been able to get into the groove.
I set a few goals last week, which were:
- Each day either eat a 20g Arla Protein Yogurt or have a Protein Meal Replacement shake.
- Track food on MyFitnessPal.
- 3 workout sessions.
- 2 of the workout sessions to be weight based.
- Alcohol only on Tuesday and Sunday.
I didn’t achieve them all. There were a couple days where I didn’t have the protein shake/yogurt because it got late and I had planned on having it when I got hungry, but I didn’t get hungry. I also didn’t stick to the alcohol on only Tuesday and Sunday rule thing, though I was counting my calories with alcohol and sticking to mixers with diet coke, apart from on Tuesday when I went to a press event and drank prosecco and beer!
I did so well with the other goals though and managed to lose 4lbs!
So yes, I’m feeling really happy and positive about it. I’m going to keep those same goals for the next week and see what happens. Even if I don’t get every single one done, I do better than if I didn’t set them at all!
Doing the weights feels great, and I feel much more confident in my body already. I went to the gym on Easter Sunday and it was so quiet so managed to take some full body photos so I can see my progress.
10lbs to go!
How was your week?
