Luckily, I was off work to recover from RTTB so I was home for the delivery. Unluckily for the courier man, I was in the shower when he arrived, and was so excited to get my delivery I hung out of the bathroom window to tell him I’d be down in a moment and I think he saw rather more of me than I intended. In my defence, it was early, I was tired, and I knew that with my achey legs it would take me ages to get downstairs and I didn’t want him to drive off. Poor bloke.
So, now that I have all of the supplements, I thought it was time I started following the training plan which calls for 6 days of training a week. I thought I would struggle a bit this week, and to be honest I haven’t done as much as the plan calls for, but I have done something each day and in my book that’s good. Monday was a 3 mile run/walk, Tuesday a 3 mile dog walk followed by 30 mins resistance, and tonight a 2 mile run and 30 mins circuits. I’m not sure if this resolve will continue for the rest of the week!
The bit I am finding hard is the nutrition plan. I didn’t realise before just how carb heavy my diet is. Ann from Famously Fit has recommended that I should aim for a 40/40/20 split protein/carbs/fat, wheras I was probaby eating 20/55/25. I have tried to introduce more protein and eat fewer carbs over the last 4 weeks but it’s not been an easy chnage to implement. You have to be REALLY organised…making packed lunches and planning meals is hard because I don’t know what I want to eat for lunch tomorrow but unless I go to work with it prepared I’ll end up making a bad choice (i.e. todays lunch ended up being a subway – not good). If anyone can recommend anything other than chicken salad or omelettes for lunch please share!
*yawn* Just realised how late it is…sorry to cut short but I must get a good nights sleep in as I have an 8-10 mile run planned tomorrow night. Night all.
