Week Five – Diary
Late! but better than never
Back to normal on the eating, which has been good… except those
cravings are back. I had my first glass of coke last week that I’ve
had since I started my clean eating etc. Funnily enough I didnt
actually like the taste of it!
My portions have become better, as we
are leading up to Xmas we have had countless amounts of goodies coming
into work but I have been good and stayed away. I want to save myself
for Xmas day so I can have a few treats (not go over bored but
definitely let loose a little bit)
I’m starting to see definition in my back. Except after
last week I feel as if I am back to square one. I am currently
battling with a heart condition which I found out I had about 2.5
years ago, I’m open about it but I dont use it as an excuse. I will
still push myself to my maximums, but some weeks are proved harder
than others. After a week of a raised heart rate I started to see my
definition I’d been working on disappear and I got weak really
quickly. Physically I almost go back to how I was prior to starting
at the gym. I chatted with my cardiologist about it, his answer was
basically “when your heart rate rises it’s like you are doing constant
cardio. Because your heart rate sits high for days sometimes weeks
you would be burning off all the muscle you have built therefore you
are going back to square one). As much as its frustrating it is
causing me to want it so much more!
Eating has been great this week YAY. Feeling focused and determined!
Getting back into training properly this week. Hasnt been the easiest
though – proving challenging.
