Fitness Report – Week Three

Summary: This has been a mixed week. I’ve noticed significant improvements in my stamina and my propensity to push myself harder in gym classes. However I’ve been far more indulgent and snacking more. There isn’t necessarily a correlation between the two trends but I don’t want the trend of munching on more sugary junk to continue in parallel. Therefore I just have to be more disciplined with my eating habits and not rely on being consistently motivated to eat well.

Moment of the Week: During my Morning Workout on Wednesday I started my plank for a minute but when I checked the clock, I couldn’t be confident when the full minute was up. I therefore stopped and started again. A few seconds into this second plank I started shaking furiously, first from my core and then all over. I was determined to continue the plank for the full minute and did so successfully. At the end of the workout, I had a little jam session to ‘What Have You Done Today to Make You Feel Proud’. For the rest of the week, I have now incorporated x2 one minute planks into my routine.

Notes/Comments:

  • Mediterranean Salad Wraps have been such a treat for lunch, so easy to prepare! Towards the end of the week I brought the ingredients into work to make which suits me quite nicely. Definitely see this as a solid lunch option. I think going for two rather than one for now will help me cut down on snacking.
  • I think Fat burn classes on Wednesdays are too easy :S. Need to decide whether I’m tough enough to brave the more difficult Legs, Bums and Tums class on a Wednesday.
  • I’m fairly certain my boobs are shrinking which is a tad bit depressing as there’s hardly anything too them in the first place.
