So, as I’d hoped today was much better than yesterday! I woke up having left all my negativity behind and was ready to go smash the gym and have a great day at work!
I worked out HARD, leaving the gym drenched in sweat – my favourite feeling! I ran 7km again, pushing my inclines to 3.5% and upping my speeds throughout the run. I burned more kcals than normal – 540. I’m feeling strong when I run now and I’m definitely getting fitter and faster; the 10k is in my sights and I’m going for a sub-hour run. People have been commenting on my progress and my body as though it just happened overnight. Or they’ll say ‘have the biscuit, you’re doing so well.’ But they forget that the reason I’m doing so well and making great progress is because I’m working my god-damn ass off!
My intake for today was:
- Pineapple Chunks
- Nutrigrain Raisin Bar
- Graze – Veggie Protein Pack
- Chicken and Couscous (again!)
- 2 Egg Omelette w/ Ham, Cheese and Tomato
- Starbucks Chocolate Cream Frappuccino (Friday Night Treat!)
After dinner Brandon and I went to the cinema to see London Has Fallen (the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen). This was another of his little surprises to cheer me up yesterday! I loved the first film and was desperate to see the second. I don’t go to the cinema often but I did not want to miss out on this. The story-line is gripping (I won’t ruin it for anyone) and the film had the perfect balance between action and a little bit of humour. I can testify to its brilliance as I actually managed to stay awake past 9pm for the first time in a long time.
I’m now looking forward to a weekend off with Brandon and seeing my family for Mother’s Day on Sunday. Have a great weekend.
