Went shopping yesterday and found that I didn’t fit in the usual size 10’s and had to move up to size 12s. Now, since I’ve been working hard to stay trim, moving up a size was not what I expected or wanted. I also haven’t lost a kilo since I started this blog (not that kilo loss is really what I’m aiming for, but it is a little surprising…) Add on top of that,...
TMT - Day 65
Yesterday was a 3.6km run & a tough Mudder weights session. Legs were a bit sore from konga the day before, but otherwise, pretty good :) Bike ride and weights session today, and then podiatrist tomorrow!
Just had a beef and haloumi salad with lots of veggies and good things. I’m stuffed, but my brain wants dessert and I’m a little sad that I can’t fit any. Weird. Gunna go home and drink a herbal tea or something…
TMT - Day 63 & 64
Monday mum and I ran the whole 3.5 km route. Which was awesome! Yesterday was 2 hours of konga. But my heart wasnt in the second class… Just couldn’t find the motivation… I’ve also come to the realization that I haven’t actually lost any weight. All this time and nothing. Next steps: Massive more effort, especially with the weights and; Eating habit...
Just realised that McDonalds breakfast is not a...
Sitting on the bus feeling shitty and needing a detox fast!!!
TMT - Day 57
Yesterday turned into a rest day, due to my lunch being extremely lack luster and I was starving when I got home… I guess that’s what happens when you have a free lunch… Today consisted of two circuits on the tough muddier boot camp… Should have done more, but I’m out of time.

Yesterday, went for a 3.6km jog in the rain… (photo to follow!) Would have done a weights circuit, but I had to rescue my Dad and his powerless motorbike, so that put an end to that! Today was a 3.6km jog (fastest time of...

Day 42 - Rest Day. Plus, I worked 12 hours Day 43 - Started the day with my babysitting. 4 kids between 3 & 10. They like it rough. and preferably if I pick them up and throw them over my shoulder.

The exercise will come back...
