Week 3

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Aims from Week 3:
Limit chocolate to a small, bitesize portion when necessary - 1 Fail
Continue logging food - Done
Continue with daily challenge videos - Done

So week 3 has been tough. I've had two cheat meals which definitely hasn't helped with the weight loss. I had fish and chips one night and an ice cream last weekend! The fish and chips was planned so I prepared myself for that and planned my meals for the day but the ice cream was a moment of weakness. I think 2 weeks of cutting out chocolate and sweets took its toll and I caved. It means this week I haven't lost anything. BUT I haven't gained either which is great.

To try and boost my motivation I decided to take my measurements for the first time since starting at Sparks and that's really spurred me on!
Waist - lost 2 inches
Hips - lost 1 inch
Thigh - lost 1 inch
And my waist to hip ratio is down by 0.03. It's amazing how much losing a couple of inches makes such a difference in my appearance!!

The gym sessions this week have actually been fun. I've mixed up the sessions and used more interval training which has had me sweating like crazy. I've also started to focus my strength training on sections of the body; so I do lots of arms in one session and legs in another and it's beginning to show in the mirror with everything starting to tone up.

Goals for Week 4:
No cheat meals
Minimum of 3 cardio sessions and 2 strength training
Continue drinking 8 glasses of WATER every day
