Well I’m ending this week on a real high. Yes it’s taken me longer to start this journey than I originally planned, but I can now comfortably say my heart is in it. Knowing that you guys are reading this too, really keeps me on track.
I have eaten some wonderful food this week – my favourite being my easy, but nutritional lunch of poached eggs and avocado on gluten free sourdough bread (with some chilli flakes thrown in!).
I also tried cauliflower rice for the first time and I have to say it was AMAZING. I mixed it with satay style Quorn pieces and sweet potato chunks. I didn’t get the best photo as I was too excited to eat it!
The week’s food has also consisted of: courgetti, Eat Natural bars, Nakd Salted Caramel Bites, protein shakes, Gosh bakes (give these a try, they’re gorgeous!) and a rocket and goat’s cheese frittata!
For exercise I have been following the first and beginning of the second week of the Couch to 5k app on my phone. It has been brilliant at building up my stamina again and I’m pretty pleased with how quickly my fitness is improving. I hope to be as fit as I was before pregnancy soon. Next week I will be introducing daily High Intensity training which I’ll go into more detail about in my next post.
Another benefit (among the many) to running, is that I have been able to explore my local area. We live on a brand new housing development, which is still in the process of being built. We are surrounded by beautiful fields and I have been lucky enough to run around them and take in the gorgeous surroundings. I do keep getting distracted by the views though!
I haven’t begun to fill out the daily sections of my Daily Greatness Training Journal yet, this starts tomorrow. I wanted to make sure I was fully devoted to my plan before I started the book. I’m ready now and I’m so excited. Next week I will be sharing some of my journal entries with you – I think you’ll love to see what’s inside and look at the beautiful page layouts.
As extra motivation I have also created a new Instagram account where I share food, exercise and beauty related pictures. You can find it at @sparkle.with.kerry – make sure you give me a follow! I’m following lots of other food and exercise lovers and I have seen some fantastic inspiration on there!
Well thank you for checking in on my progress. Any motivational comments are very welcome!
