Hi everyone. Thank god its the weekend, been really looking forward to it. Seeing my parents new house tomorrow and staying over, and then i'll have plenty of time to get stuff around the house organised. Might try and get some baking done if I have time.
Yesterday went really well, had some leftover chilli and rice and an apple for lunch, did another spin class and kicked my sorry behind! With about 30 minutes muscle work in the gym, and then I cooked a simple healthy dinner- Herby Cannellini Beans, on a jacket potato with salad. Gimme a shout if you want the recipe for the beans- they are lush on a baked potato, or toast, or as a chunky soup, and if you want something a bit healthier to go on the side of roast lamb instead of roast potatoes, they go very well. Well I suppose lamb chops/ roast lamb is a bit cheeky anyway but a little bit of what you fancy....
Am trying out something a bit different today. Trying a 22 hour liquid fast. Basically, I ate late last night (10:30pm!), and I thought I would try to not eat anything until 8:30pm tonight dinner (not sure what i'll eat, probably veg and potato soup with some seedy bread). Drink like water and coffee, tea, juice, squash and milk throughout the day to keep me going. After I finish work today, i'm going to go to the gymn and either have a short gym workout, or perhaps try an aerobics class, I just hope its not as intense as the last one. And of course weigh-in! I have decided I wont be too upset if the scales haven't gone down much, but I will check out my muscle density and see if that has changed. Because I reckon the scales wont have budged much but what with working out 10/12 days so far, my fat/muscle ratio should have shifted. I have decided on my actual goals now as well:
Reduce total body fat by 6.5%
Lose 3.5 inches off my waist.
That'll do pig!
