Life has been a little crappy for the last 4 weeks for many personal reasons and I’ve also been under the weather. I haven’t felt like working out or eating clean, I have probably only worked out about 6 times in the last month as I have just lost interest in it. I was working out consistently for 8 months never missing a week, but due to not feeling well and life taking over I’ve lost it and can’t be bothered.
My eating habits have been all over the place, I have eaten pretty much whatever I’ve fancied – bread, crisps, chocolate, take away – I have had a very balanced diet which is okay but I don’t feel healthy at all. I have come to the point now where I’m starting to feel better within myself and the urge for working out and eating well is slowly returning which I am so happy about.
I’ve got a plan – I am taking it week by week – I want to start eating well introducing lots of fruit, vegetables and salad into my diet, up my protein and also continue drinking lots of water. I’ve ordered a new recipe book The Hairy Dieters Eat For Life, as I think sometimes changing up recipes is good, I’ve followed The Body Coach Lean In 15 books for nearly 2 years now and I’m a bit bored with chicken this and chicken that. As we are entering the Autumn/Winter months I crave comfort food and hearty meals, I don’t really eat salad during those months but I do still want to be healthy during the run up to Christmas as we all know Christmas is all about the food and drink.
So this week’s meal plan is:-
Monday – Hairy Dieters Cottage Pie & Veg
Tuesday – Left Over Cottage Pie & Veg
Wednesday – Chicken Fajita Sweet Potatoes
Thursday – Chicken Breast & Veg
Friday – Pork Chops, New Potatoes & Veg
Saturday – Sausages, Sweet Potato Mash & Veg
Sunday – Chicken Stir Fry
I’m going to return to my normal schedule of working out 3 times a week, I’ll be starting Kayla Itsines from the beginning as it is exactly 12 weeks until Christmas. I’ll also add in a couple of Kettle Bell workouts once I’m back into the flow of things. I love having a plan and drawing a line under the last month, it feels good to want to work out again and sort my diet out.
But as luck would have it I’m currently looking after a poorly girl who now has a tummy bug and threw up right in the middle of The Range this morning, she is clinging to me like a newborn – mummy duties always come first.
Have a great week everyone!
