Monday – Day 20
Monday was pretty action packed. We rode the horses and I did some Pilates and dragged myself to the gym at 8pm for a session of bench press, running and 50 burpees. Being a very sad individual though, I’d rather do a mammoth session of burpees than run any distance over 500m. I was really needing my kip last night knowing I had Crossfit with my boy at 6 the next morning. Quinny, my little bundle of joy, decided that Crossfit would be much more challenging for me if I did it on minimal sleep so she came into my bed in the middle of the night and assumed her usual position in the middle of my bed. I love hanging onto the edge of the bed and waking up feeling like you’ve been booted a few times. It’s even better when your nearly 15 year old son then tans you at the gym.
I can’t remember what it was like before I had kids. Although it didn’t feel like it at the time, I know now that it was quite easy when they were little. I hate to disillusion all you kid newbies out there, but the fun starts after they’re toilet trained. That’s when real life management skills are needed. Anyway, I wouldn’t swap them for all the tea in China even if they do leave me wanting to lock myself in a sound proof room!
Monday’s food – day 20
Day 20 was manic beyond all stretches of the imagination and I was in, out and shaking it all about. It was a real grab and go day and dinner went to pots. I couldn’t face a meal when I got home for the gym at 9. Although I have my plan, sometimes I just need to go with the flow.
Lemon water on waking
Breakfast – fried eggs and mango (so predictable, I know!)
Snack – protein bar (homemade with cashews and protein powder)
Lunch – 8 shrimp, 1/2 an avocado, green salad, apple cider vinegar and a handful of toasted seeds
Snack – banana and peanut butter and a bowl of steamed broccoli (I steamed broccoli for the dinner I didn’t eat! It was a family dinner though so everyone else ate it and there was enough for lunch)
Dinner – missed but I had a protein shake when I got in at 9.
Not a very structured food day but I ate what I wanted and when I wanted it and I avoided sugar. I didn’t have any cravings for sugar but I did force myself to eat to ensure I didn’t have any dips.
That’s me for another day.
Still loving this no sugar thing! Oh, my skin and nails are in great nick too! Just saying 😉
