Goal for last week
Last week’s goal was to get back into things properly, and to drinking at least 2 litres of water per day. I definitely did the water thing, but my eating still leaves a lot to be desired! I have found that shortening my eating window has helped slightly as it makes me more mindful of the fact I only have until a set time to eat my food for the day.
Goal for this week
This week’s goal is to keep up with my exercise routine. I’ve finished the PiYo 8-week schedule that came with the dvds, and I’m worried that without a set schedule to tell me what to do, I’ll end up going a bit too easy on myself!
As mentioned above, I’ve now completed the 8-week programme that came with my PiYo box set. In all honesty, I can’t believe I stuck at it for eight weeks and am really pleased with myself. I’m not sure now whether to buy another dvd set from the same company (there are several). With my hernia and separated abs, my options with exercise are somewhat limited, and I don’t want to buy something I won’t use. My other option is to just re-do the last four weeks of PiYo over and over again!
This week I’ve been trying to pay more attention to the amount of protein I eat in my 8-hour window. Apparently you’re supposed to swap your pounds in weight for the number of grams you’re supposed to get each day. I’m working on that, but I’m also incredibly… laissez-faire (lazy) about my eating. I’ve never been a big one for counting calories or anything like that but I’m just about managing to get the right amount of protein!
I’ve been reading lots about intermitent fasting, and listened to a couple of really interesting podcasts about it. I think it works really well for me because I’m one of those people who can go all morning without eating, but then once I start eating, I’ll eat everything in sight. By limiting the number of hours in which I eat, it means I don’t go too crazy on the amount of junk I eat!

I’m actually quite pleased with this! I did a few really tough workouts this week where I really felt like I went all out – but I’ve also been really busy and feeling awful. When I did my workout on Thursday I actually thought I might pass out, I felt so rough. Despite not losing weight or inches this week, I do feel a difference. I feel like the fat is going from my belly, and my core is definitely stronger. So I don’t much care about the numbers!
