Fitness show - 4 weeks out


Ok, I've not been great with writing these weekly blog posts in the last 3 weeks, I'm sorry! I've started a new job, so my days look like this...

  • 5:00 am awake: Fasted cardio ( every other day)
  • 6:30 am: Eden gets up, rush to get out of the door so I can start work by 8:00 am
  • 4:30 pm: Finish work, collect my little girl from nursery, give her dinner, do some housework and get her to bed by 8 pm
  • 8:00 pm: Gym - weights and cardio
  • 10:15 pm: Home from gym, shower, food prep for the next day and do any other work I have going on.

So as you can see, I'm a bit busy :)

Quick update, since I last blogged I've done a photoshoot for a gym and Fit Boutique, here's some amateur shots...


Photoshoot day 


I've been getting all my weight training in but have really struggled with the fasted cardio, just because I don't sleep enough at the moment, so now I'm trying to do it every other day. You need to listen to your body, if your body is exhausted then take a day off, or cut down for a bit until you feel better. I felt so tired when I went to see my coach last week, I was supposed to be training legs and cardio but I needed sleep, so I did my cardio and went home. Felt so much better for it and had more energy the next day.

Food and drink

My diet has changed this week, I noticed my fat loss had plateaued, so I've brought carbs back in. I automatically feel so much better and tighter. 

It now looks like this:

Meal 1: 3 whole eggs and oats
Meal 2: Chicken, brown rice or sweet potato and green veg
Meal 3: Turkey, brown rice or sweet potato and green veg
Meal 4: Chicken, brown rice or sweet potato and green veg
Meal 5: Cod, brown rice or sweet potato and green veg
Meal 6: Salmon and salad

I'll have update pics for you next week!

Have a great week xox
