Week three is here!

 

DAY FIFTEEN

- Not a paleo day (I ate pasta for the first time this entire challenge - forgot how filling it is!)

- No junk food alone (woop woop)

- Exercise: will be doing BBWW in a little while. Aiming for three sets. To fit in with this week's mini challenge, going to add 1 minute of high knees after each set, as well as the jumping jacks!

- University work: done! Already worked for over an hour!

 

Well done, crar!! Week three is going strong :D

 

What University work are you doing?

Sounds like you started your week three like a rock star!!!

 

Thank you!

 

Well done, crar!! Week three is going strong :D

 

What University work are you doing?

 

Yesterday, I was doing some notes about infectious diseases (meningitis, malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, that sort of thing). Today I am going to work through a workbook I got from uni about Urology (kidneys/bladder/prostate problems). You mentioned your university work... what do you study? :)

 

DAY SIXTEEN

- Paleo day! Sweet potato hash, banana pancakes, baked salmon with harissa, roasted cauliflower and salad, plus a pear as a snack. And muchos green tea. (I have quite a formulaic time of it whenever I eat paleo at the moment - I've been looking at some recipes, going to mix things up on my next paleo day)

- No junk food

- Exercise - started the day with a half hour yoga video

- University work - as I said, urology workbook. I expect the whole thing will take 2-2.5 hrs so I will probably end up leaving some for tomorrow.

 

Thanks for stopping by everyone, it means a lot.

Love the confidence thing! Great progress

 


- Exercise - 5km run completed (girl talk - I wore shorts to work out for the first time ever, because of that confidence thing I have going on right now!)

 

WEEK TWO REVIEW

A good week when we look at the numbers:

- 6 workouts

- 3 paleo days

- Still not caved to the junk demons

- Not as much university work done as I would like, sadly.

 

Bring on week three! It's great sharing this challenge with you, my new friends :)

I've been terrible at updating of late! But don't worry friends, I'm still keeping on with the challenge, have just been spending a lot less time on my laptop of late, going home to visit family and stuff. Feel very physically and emotionally rejuvinated after a long weekend at home. Hopefully I will put together a full update tomorrow. Also I got a personal best time on 5km running! And also managed to get my time below 30mins for the first time ever!

Glad to see that you're still with us!

 

Spending time with friends and family AND taking a break from the virtual world can be very rewarding/reflective.

 

Well done on your personal best running, not something I'm brave enough to really try.

 

Looking forward to your update.

Indeed - just feel so much better about life for the weekend spent at home!

 

Full update coming up from last Wednesday until yesterday - I keep a challenge spreadsheet on my phone so I can update it whenever I need to and then use that to update my thread :)

 

DAY 17

- Not paleo

- No junk food alone

- Exercise - yoga video

- No uni work :( this is a theme for my update

 

DAY 18

- Paleo! This was a challenge, because I was with a friend and we went out to lunch. However, I managed to order what I think is a paleo meal (obviously, this will not have been as strictly paleo as it would have been if I had made it myself, but I am really pleased to have had the experience of eating paleo in a restaurant, which is obviously a challenge in itself and a situation that I will encounter more and more the greater the proportion of my time I spend eating paleo-only foods!) I had roast chicken thighs, sweet potato wedges and a pea salad that involved peas, chilli and various seeds. I am glad that I felt full and satisfied, even though the fries were calling to me!

- No junk food

- Exercise: 5km run :)

- No uni work

(Also I was out with my friend for a day of shopping and seeing the Avengers at the cinema which I loved!)

 

DAY 19

- Not paleo

- No junk food alone

- No exercise

- No uni work

 

DAY 20

- Not paleo

- No uni work

 

DAY 22

- Not paleo

Mammoth post there. Been a busy few days at home. Haven't stuck to my challenge as much as I would like, and I am down one workout for week 3. Pleased with myself on the whole though :)
