This week was a bit mixed up and not my usual week, we had a ‘cyclone’ Friday and that made some things a bit tricky (see the thing about cyclones is you just don’t know when to take them super seriously or when to be a bit slack about it…I err on the side of caution and also make sure we are prepared).
I had a gym buddy this week too, how awesome is it to train with a friend?! Makes the time just fly by.
Monday: Legs day and I had planned a run with my girlfriends, which fell through with last minute babysitting falling through for one of the girls. I added PBs to my leg weights this week J
Tuesday: Chest/Shoulders/Triceps and 20 minute HIIT on the Rowing Machine (1 minute sprint and 1 minute steady).
Wednesday: Back/Biceps/Abs and 20 minute HIIT on the Elliptical Trainer (30 seconds fast as I could and 1 minute recovery).
Thursday: Unscheduled rest day.
Friday: Modified my training so I could complete my workout at home, couldn’t get to the gym. Legs in the morning and Shoulders in the afternoon. No cardio because I did the 2 sets of training.
Saturday: Walk in the morning before breakfast (with my girlfriends) and then Back session.
Sunday: Hill run/walk with my girlfriends and my running stroller (with my toddler inside…because running with an empty stroller would be totally weird).
My goals are not primarily to lose weight. I want to lose body fat and lean out while building muscle and this type of training and eating will get me the results I am after.
I did 7 weeks of Jamie Eason’s LiveFit program and wasn’t seeing results (sometimes a one size fits all program just doesn’t work). So I sort the help of a trainer, she wrote a meal plan for me (specific to me and my goals) and a training program. I have just finished my second week with her, I feel fantastic and I am SEEING results!!
My food was spot on apart from some banana bread on Thursday. I post my food everyday on IG, so if you’re interested in that then head over to InstaGram and check it out. High carb day tomorrow…that makes a sweet potato loving gal really happy!
How was your week? What kind of training do you do?
Yours in health
