Since taking up blogging instead of endurance sport I have put on a bit of weight. It ain’t that bad, I am still in the same clothes, they are just a little bit tighter, and I am far happier than I ever was. I wrote this post before about how once I got to my ‘magical’ skinny weight and nothing much occurred.
But things in recent months are starting to irk me a little. I didn’t feel so fab in my bikini in the Philippines. I feel tired and lack energy in the mornings. Besides that my immune system is low after having two bouts of tonsillitis and a severe reaction to a spider bite.
With that all behind me and the promise of being able to run this week, F45 is starting a 10 week challenge tomorrow! I am DETERMINED to stick to a clean eating plan for 10 weeks. This will lead me up to two things that I am really looking forward to in spring; Bali Bliss Retreat from the 7th September to the 11th and the SMH Half Marathon on the 20th of September.
What could be better than feeling your best, then going to a retreat in Bali then returning all healthy and relaxed and running another half marathon? This will be me like beautiful Nadine in the video… Except for the surfing part.
So after an inspirational talk from our trainer Adam, this is my plan for the next ten weeks!
I am hoping to – lose 6 kilos, fit into my black bikini and increase my energy.
I am going to do this by…..
Sticking to eating clean (no processed grains, dairy or sugar) with a cheat meal
Avoiding the booze, (but enjoying a glass of red per week if I really really want it)
Meditate for 5 – 10 min daily, no matter how busy I am
Completing 2 runs for half marathon training and 2-3 F45 and a yoga per week
Enjoying 1 small coffee a day
Get 8 hours sleep a night (No phone or computer for 1 hour before bed)
Drinking 2 litres of water a day
Reading more books at night instead of TV and blogs…
What do you think of this?
Reckon I will be ready for Bali?
Come join me and get fit for spring!
