Back into full-on training this week, and it feels great! Yesterday morning I did a cycle class. OMG it hurt! I kept saying that I must have got the "hard" bike (you know how some bikes seem harder than others) and my legs were burning, but soooo good to sweat so hard! Then yesterday afternoon I got home and walked the dogs.
This morning I did weights for the first time in 6 weeks - where did my strength go???? I deliberately scaled back the weights I was using cos I knew I would have lost some strength, but I did not realise just how much strength I'd lost. Felt like I was using baby weights! Today was back and biceps - and I think I'm gonna be sore tomorrow!! (cant wait actually!). After weights I did 20 minutes interval cardio on the Cross Trainer.
Food is spot on - and I'm feeling good. I've switched to using Calorie King instead of Fitday, and I'm finding it heaps easier because all the Aussie brands are there. Anyway today I thought I'd give Cottage Cheese another go... I keep trying to like it, but I'm afraid its just not working. Today I had cottage cheese mixed with a packet of Splenda, cinnamon and chopped up pieces of apple. It was ok to start with, but the more I ate the more I wanted to gag. YUK! Cottage Cheese and I are never going to see eye to eye, so I think I'll just stop now.
Yesterday I took my measurements and skinfolds. I was absolutely horrified by my bodyfat %, its gone up 5% in 6 weeks - ouch! Never fear, it wont be there for long! Funny thing is that I seem to have put the weight on in places that I dont normally... like my boobs. :)~ My other half is quite chuffed!
Thought for the day: Dont eat lunch at your desk if you are a messy eater - I speak from experience and have ended up with mustard all over my mouse "roller"...
