I have had another good week of training and eating well and I am noticing such a difference in my body. I am really enjoying weightlifting and had a PB this week with my deep level squats- I am now squatting 40kg which may not sound a lot but I have been focusing on my technique and ensuring I have good form and am as close to the floor as possible. I really believe squats are one of the best exercises you can do as long as you are doing them correctly and strengthening your back not opening it up to injury.
I am still training 5 times a week and working on strength training rather than cardio. I’m not trying to lose weight and I do a fair amount of cardio in my day to day living anyway, especially as I still put Taylor in the sling rather than the pushchair which hurts my wrists.
I had been hoping to get a chance to practise walking in my heels and bikini before the camp on Sunday but unfortuntely my son has other ideas. He’s 15 months and loves taking my shoes off me and playing with them, I think it’s the sparkles on the heel! I’m hoping I don’t make a fool of myself in front of everyone!
I’m finding the evenings are the hardest time food wise as I feel very hungry and tempted to snack on naughtiness, I’ve resorted to peanut butter and a few chunks of dark chocolate to keep the sweet cravings at bay. I’m still eating the same amount and am just trying to eat every couple of hours rather than cutting down on calories and becoming food obsessive.
I have 4 days until the camp so I’m trying to get as much training in as possible and have Sunday as a rest day training wise but will need to prepare all my food the night before so I have enough to last all day. I don’t really know what to expect on the day but am so pleased I’m going with a friend so we can be moral support for each other.
