I’ll be honest -today was marginally better than yesterday but certainly not back to my former performance or determination. I did my meal – or should I say salad prep last night but that was about it. The day didn’t start too bad and I went training even though I didn’t want to.
4:00am 1/4 cup of grapes 🍇
4:30 WOD AIR
Partner row splitting each distance between them – work rate full sprint
2 rounds of:
I rowed pretty hard to be honest keeping my pace between 1:44-2:10/ 500m – but most sub 2:00/500m
I like rowing – but short distances. Like the 500m is my optimum distance which I can do under 2mins. I get kind of bored but I’m pretty good at it. I was going for it on my rounds but my partner who I thought would be good actually wasn’t that good. Poor technique let her down I guess and just not frigging pulling hard enough!! I’m not the fittest person out there but I friggin yanked that chain like there’s no tomorrow. My partner didn’t – I was getting proper annoyed…. my competitive side comes out in these kinds of situations especially when I know I can do well. If it was burpees I’m sure it would be me letting the side down so I should be more forgiving right?! It was a good workout though.
6:30am 3egg white omelette with sweet peppers and lemon tea
7am protein bar – I was just simply hungry and wanted something else to eat
9am tea with milk and 1 sugar
10:30am 10 raw almonds and kale, pineapple and protein powder shake
11:30am coffee with milk and 1 sugar
1:30pm 2cups salad 🥗 tin of tuna
Rubbish lunch it was in that it was pretty dry. I mean I ate it obviously I like the salad just uninspiring. One of those meals you just eat cause you’re supposed to eat. But at least I didn’t buy food out.
2:30pm green tea
So I was doing alright but I didn’t prepare an afternoon snack, which meant by the time I passed by my cousins after work I was hanging! And so I went into his fridge. Luckily he didn’t have much.
5:30 – 7pm
Handful of peanuts
1 bite of a guava jam puff (random I know)
Bowl of soup with pumpkin, yam, chicken wings. Was quite nice a bit salty for me but nice.
8pm roasted almonds (about 1/2 a cup may be a bit less) and green tea
So yeah not bad – but not great. Still haven’t kicked the tea/coffee habit. It’s ridiculous as I don’t drink it at home at all! And I really need to go to the supermarket so I can cook food. I’m still in lazy mode.
One good thing is that my knee felt a bit better after the icing last night. Icing it again now to see if I can get more of the fluid or swelling to go down.
Undecided whether to go training tomorrow morning. I know I should but I also feel I should rest the know from doing squats. There’s always an element of squatting in the regular wod. I may just get up and do abs at home or something or go for a run up the road. I live literally 400 m from a running track!!
So that’s it – pushing on as best I can. I submit my final piece of work for MA this weekend so no excuses from there on in. Total focus on weight loss 😬😬
