I’m a total doughnut. I set my alarm for 9am rather than 6am by accident. Luckily, my body is more than used to getting up early and I woke up naturally just after 6am. I’d have been really annoyed at myself if I’d slept in and missed the gym, nevermind being late to work! I skipped my cardio again this morning and did a heavy full body workout. I put my legs through their paces which I haven’t done properly for a while. Squats, Lunges and Deadlifts. REPEAT. REPEAT. REPEAT. I can guarantee I’ll be feeling it tomorrow. I then did the same with my core. I used heavier weights and upped my reps to get a really great burn.
I was a little bit naughty with my intake today, but it was nice to allow myself the things I wanted:
- Nutrigrain Granola Bar
- Graze Blueberry Toasts w/ White Chocolate Dip
- M&S Sweet Chilli Lentil Curls
- Smartie’s Cookie (this is where it all went wrong)
- Salad w/ Chicken
- Chicken Burrito – No Sour Cream, Beans etc so it’s not too bad
- Doritos w/ Salsa
- Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut
Brandon and I decided to have a night in and grab some dinner when he picked me up from work. We stopped off at Illegal Jacks for some Mexican and I have to say it was outstanding. The food was fresh and by omitting the high-fat ingredients, I’m hoping it wasn’t too calorific. Not that it matters with what I ate afterwards. I was having really bad cravings and I gave in to them. I ate far too much and too much of the wrong foods, which I’m slightly disappointed by. I don’t want to throw away any progress by eating crisps and chocolate, but at the same time I enjoyed it and life is for enjoying. As I’ve said countless times it’s all about having the balance.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
