I had a really down day yesterday but was determined that today, I was going to pull myself together and get back on track. So, I got up out of bed all guns blazing, had protein pancake and banana for brekkie and off I went to the gym.

I did about 35 mins of weights (still on my rehab plan, another couple of weeks then will be going onto full strength training) then straight into spin class and I really worked as hard as I can ever remember working - I pushed myself even when I thought my lungs had shrunk to the size of peas and the sweat was dripping off my eyelashes! 600 cals burned in total.

I don't quite know where it came from, but I enjoyed it so much and I hope it was enough to set me up for an energetic and motivated week ahead.

Now, my challenge for the day is eating all my calories - 2099 including my exercise cals. I struggle to eat that many cals and keep it good quality food but today I'm really going to set my mind to it as I want to reap the benefits of my efforts, not just cancel out my hard work by eating crap.

I'll post my food later to let you see how I've got on!


  1. Well done mate, sounds like an awesome workout! I can't wait to get back to the gym tomorrow! If you're struggling with the calories, remember calorie dense foods such as oily fish, nuts and seeds, a larger serving of pasta or rice, add some avocado to your salad, etc.

  2. Wow, what an awesome gym session!!!! Well done girl x
