Week Three – Diary
I was all ready to hit the ground running this week and got knocked back by a stomach bug! I couldn’t even down a meal on the Monday, Tuesday and finally able to eat on the Wednesday. I didn’t go to work or the gym on the Monday, but Tuesday I went back and that included the gym. Having no food (cause I couldn’t eat) made me feel a lot worse than what I thought, I ended up home in bed as soon as I finished learning my lesson if your body says no then listen to it.
Progress photos this week, im more happy with. Im actually starting to see a little bit of definition, which is exciting, mainly in my back and noticing my butt lifting, MUST BE THOSE SQUATS! I have also noticed my arms are getting a bit thicker, must mean I’ve built up some muscle,
I have been asked by a few people why I’m doing this, and “why change” has been said a few times. Firstly – I normally eat what I want to eat, If I want chocolate I eat chocolate, if I wasn’t pizza I will eat pizza and If I want to eat two pies in one sitting.. I will. I also love cooking, I like to create dishes and work with flavours, but not everything I cook is beneficial to your body, for example Cream! So 1st step is becoming a controlled healthy eater and finding out how to fuel my body correctly. Secondly – Even though I’m not fat I have a high body fat, I want to reduce this. Like most girls, I have cellulite, my butt wobbles, all those things.. I want to firm everything up, become fit and be fit skinny not fat skinny (there is such thing).
Back onto the food as of Wednesday midday. On Thurs I headed out to catch up with a friend over from Aussie, I knew it meant a few drinks so I grabbed a sparkling water which I drank from a wine glass, this definitely helped me feel like I was a part of the social drinking atmosphere and on the plus side no one hassled me to drink. To be honest I prefer not to drink anyways, I never used to and it was only something I started doing over the past 6 months.
Still sitting at 19.0% body fat and sitting at 52kgs. Weight has dropped, but body fat has not! Concerns me. Feeling a bit better about my progress photos than I did about Week 2. I feel like I look different between the last three weeks photos but don’t feel physically different, actually feeling quite sluggish.
