I had every intention of blogging weekly my journey with my eating plan, sometimes being a mum of 3, running a business, training CrossFit and running a house I do not keep on top of everything. I guess this is one of those times. School holidays especially tip me over, as I try to balance enjoying having my kids home and my normal responsibilities.
So school is back, I am trying to catch up with getting my newsletter out (which is a week late) … and finally a blog about what is happening – I can hardly believe it’s the 5th week … seems to have gone fast.
The first week on the program was new and exciting, and I got into it with gusto … what I have learnt is that the more organised I am, the better the eating goes. The plan Libby made for me is based on macros and I’ll be honest, I don’t understand how all that works, which is why following the plan is even easier – as I don’t have to worry about that part of it.
I have noticed quite a difference in my energy, and my performance with training. I have had a few times of hunger – mainly at night. I guess I usually don’t allow myself to be hungry. I found it quite easy to stay on track, until this week. The weekend before last we had functions on every night, so I fell off the wagon – I got back on track this week, although … I am not sure if its hormones at play, or just having a hiccup in the program that has thrown me off. I have stuck to the program this week, it has been more challenging – I have found my motivation to be testing me. I guess we have to stay realistic that it will not always be easy …
here are the comparisons from day 1 until this morning – which will be 6 weeks (still find it confronting posting these) hair out are the photos taken today, hair up are day 1
I have just competed at Allstars this past weekend (I actually started writing this post last week and didn’t get it finished) so I will need to sit and plan the week out and get organised as I couldn’t on the weekend.
remember to grab some wrist inspo here, like Robyn … a great way to keep goals on track. Find out more here
Time to get on with this Monday … so much to do this week. Eldest daughter turns 18, so its going to be a busy week. Hope your Oct is off to a good start …. and have an awesome Monday. xxx
