When I saw this I laughed so hard and knew I just had to share it! My abs still hurt from the laughing…
Note to self: need more ab-work.
I don’t remember the last time I went to the gym. Or went for a run. I haven’t been to boot camp in a while either (I missed the sign-up deadline for May… now I have to wait until June).
I do, however, remember the last time I ate icing straight out of a cup, and what I had for breakfast. It was covered in sugar & cinnamon, and dipped in chocolate dipping sauce. And I ate it in a fluffy pink dressing gown that adds another 5kg. Oh yeah, I’d totally tap me in the mornings.
Tomorrow, however, is a completely different story. I will get to the gym in the morning, and go out for a walk in the afternoon.
Please members of this tight-knit community – do not be alarmed! This is not delusion. This is motivation.
It was hard to spot at first.
But I’m 98% confident I’ve got it right, now.
I may have just eaten half of a family-sized block of Cadbury chocolate. That’s right, not even the good stuff.
I feel okay sharing this with you because this is the least-terrible thing I’ve eaten in the past week.
This has left me feeling very icky, bloated and poor.
I’m off to Auckland for a couple of nights tomorrow, and when I get back there will be no more takeaways, junk food or bought lunches. It’s all about the homemade, penny-saving goodness, baby!
This week I have a nice, casual dinner plan sorted. We’re headed into winter, so I want warm, filling meals – and
it’s dark by the time I get home I’m lazy so they have to be quick and easy.
Solution one: cook a batch of something delicious on Sunday, and eat up well for the fist half of the week (at least). Cue this so-easy-my-dog-could-do-it recipe: roasted vegetable couscous salad with cashews for extra crunch.
I made a bulk-batch of four servings, at approximately 370 calories each, with really simple ingredients. If you’re interested in the recipe, read on! Continue reading
What’s this obsession with having a gap between your legs when you stand with your feet together?
Y’all know it comes down to the size of your hips, right?
Ladies, there’s not a lot you can do to change what God gave you.
And this would be a terrible reason to try getting pregnant.
Can we all just agree that anyone looking there (let alone judging you!) is a creep?
Because damn girl, you be fiiiiiiine.
Ladies, if you haven’t seen this video yet, do.
Take a moment.
Think about it.
Mull it over. In your own time.
Share it with someone else.
Then tell me, do you think you’re more beautiful than you say?
Yes. Yes, you are.
Boot camp has been getting better and better – and I definitely feel it in between! There have been plenty of body weight exercises, more boxing, and suicide sprints.
The latest ‘thing‘ seems to be what our trainer calls snack planking. Ummmm… what the?! What the indeed.
I had never heard of it – and googling it isn’t much help either. For those of you who are as confused as I was when I first heard the phrase, the idea behind snack planking is multiple bursts of planking with limited rest time in between.
10 second plank.
4 seconds rest.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
It is in the beginning…
…Then you just want to collapse into a pile of sweat and tears.
We did them yesterday at the end if our session in a car parking building (wet weather back-up plan). I have never been so thankful for being able to lay on a dirty car park floor in my life. Any tears were tears of joy, once it was over.
Ouch. My arms.
My very first session as testing too – I wrote about it here. And I’m glad I noted my results, because it gives me a standard platform to compare my progress.
After the last test, I mentioned that I was going to focus on my upper body and core. And I certainly feel like I’ve improved – though my planking results don’t show it.
Next focus will be on my mental stamina: got to improve those planking and wall-sits times! Maybe crack 60 sit-ups, too?
