Let's do this.8:47 AM
Can I also admit that I thought this challenge/linkup started yesterday, I maintained my bulletproof discipline until about 3:18pm when I realized this challenge actually starts today and I was so happy that I immediately went straight to my cupboard to polish off the popcorn that I was thinking about all.day.long. Sort of like a send off to fun eating. Now, let us bow our heads and have a moment of silence as we bid farewell to shovelling delicious food into our faces.
I'm stoked to get back on the healthy wagon and I already know my plan: eat clean and work out like fuck --
-- Good bye holiday treats, chocolate, popcorn and copious amounts of wine. Goodbye mint chocolate errting. Goodbye chemical-laden-yet-so-delicious mint coffee creamer. I'll miss each and every one of you.
-- My eating will be back to my usual - a modified version of paleo ie. I take sugar and cream with my coffee, I drink wine on Fridays and on occasion, I eat cheese. Although I'll be consuming these things, I'll go back to super disciplined eating. Been there, done that so no big deal.
-- I'm going 100% grain free again. I cut myself a little slack in December and allowed myself to eat an english muffin once in a while. If it's one thing I'll miss, it's my homemade egg mcmuffin breakfast sandwich.
-- Sorry mom, when you bring home those delicious spring rolls and bbq pork buns from dimsum, count me out #sads.
-- Already baked my grain-free bread for the week.
-- No snacking whenever I see a treat. Just my regular ol' 3 meals a day.
-- I'll be recording my eating habits for the first 2 weeks to make sure that I stay on track and rebuild the routine. This has always worked for me - when I know I have to write shit down, I never deviate and I stick to the plan.
-- I'll be hitting it hard at muay thai, as always.
-- more weight lifting and circuit training. Muay thai is my #1 choice for workouts and while it's allowed me to maintain my strength and is amazing for cardio training, I do miss lifting weights so I'll be focusing on 2 muscle groups during each lifting session.
-- more running, even if it's on the vile treadmill. Gotta get that cardio training in.
-- Yoga. Groupon, where you at?
-- Monday = Rest day
-- Tuesday = Muay thai
-- Wednesday = Strength & conditioning
-- Thursday = Muay thai
-- Friday = Muay thai
-- Saturday = Muay thai
-- Sunday = Snow shoeing (if there's snow); if not, yoga.
Right now, I'm 132lbs. Not mad about that since I thought it would be more. That's a 5lbs gain from Dec 1, so my target is to lose those 5lbs in the coming weeks.
Body fat% and pants size are still the same (whew!) so nothing else has changed other than the scale.
