Fitness Report: Week Four

Summary: This has been one hell of a week! I finally had the guts to quit the job I’ve been miserable at for some time now. But the process of doing this was not entirely straightforward. I’d say this had a greater impact on my diet rather than my fitness schedule. My mistake was not prepping food  early in the week, which meant that when I got home late, I would typically go for a comfort bowl of Special K.

Moment of the Week: On Friday Morning, I felt like throwing the towel in with all my fitness work (shock horror!). But I put on ‘Ain’t Got Far to Go’ By Jess Glynne (such a tune!) and managed to get myself out of bed and go to the gym and feel x10 better for it.

Notes/Comments

  • This has been the first week where I’ve seen a noticeable difference in my abs, feels very odd to look at. I’m also definitely improving so much with pushing myself in gym classes. Seeing these minor changes over the past four weeks is so rewarding.
  • I’m sweating so much more in classes and think I may need to invest in more gym wear and a towel for just wiping the sweat away?
