michelle only asks for a weight from the scale to be reported every week, and every 4 weeks we measure..but i measured this week anyway and will every week from now on. Im trying to make them as accurate as possible but sometimes measuring yourself is hard and you can get the measurements wrong. so it looks like I’ve lost a couple of centimetres in a few areas but again I’m not getting my hopes up too high yet, because i may have stuffed the measurements up, but if this is right then I’m super happy because its proof that it is making a difference.
right thigh 60cm left thigh 59.5cm
both knees 37cm
chest in line with nipples 104cm
both arms 28cm
left arm 27.5
right arm 27
its been a few days since i’ve posted but thats because i’ve only got sad things to say. well i lie - i have one good thing but we’ll start with the bad. friday night was really bad because i made my healthy nacho meal and i ended up having seconds and then having lollies with jeremy swell but that was going to be my cheat meal instead of saturday night. then saturday i was good, i got up and did RPM at 8.30..until the afternoon, my sister came over cause i was bored and we got lollies from across the road. then i decided i wasn’t going to eat dinner because i had already eaten enough, and i was going to a 21st that night. when i got to the 21st i didn’t eat anything, but i did decide to drink. i don’t regret this - because it was a great night and i haven’t had a good drunk night out with the girls in a loooooong time. sunday didn’t start off too bad, i didn’t stick to michelle bridges but jeremy cooked me 1 poached egg on toast with avocado and some bacon. then i decided to have some orange juice and some milk. for lunch i didn’t have anything cause i slept all day but then that afternoon we went to jeremy brothers house for dinner and i ended up having a risotto ball from cucumbers and also chicken chilli meat balls (lunch) and then a white bun with cheese and a rissole in it for dinner. so i felt gross, i felt like the last 3 days id let myself down completely! so monday i decided to start fresh, did RPM at 6am, and went for a walk that arvo with bailey to test out my new HRM. i resisted chinese that night for dinner and all was good. then tuesday i got up, did my pump class at 6am, had breakfast, had my lunch and then i got hungry so i ended up have 4 mountain bread slices with cheese on them, then i had a multigrain wrap with cheese, tomato paste and olives. i felt so disgusting that i decided i wasnt going to eat dinner because i had already eaten double what i should’ve. i went to mums and i ended up having a bowl of steamed veges for dinner, but instead of stopping i ended up having aero chocolate and a fabulicious lolly, which meant i hadn’t even been able to resist dessert. this morning, it serves me right..ive woken up with a cold. and on my last day off for the week too. so i didn’t go to RPM this morning - i promised myself i would do michelle bridges workout or go for a long walk but its pissing down and I’m too tired to even make lunch or get lunch and its 2.30pm. so i decide to weigh myself and lord and behold I’ve actually lost 0.9kg since i started last week. i can’t believe it..after all the shit i ate over the weekend i actually have a tiny bit of success to show for my hard workout efforts because i haven’t missed a workout until today which I’m very proud of. AND the days not over - maybe i can re read this and make myself so disappointed that i actually push through the pain and do a workout today as well because i haven’t eaten the right breaky or lunch today - at least I’ve kept it healthy. so there we go. my first disappointing write up to look back to when i feel weak and hungry. i only have 16 days until cairns and i still want to lose 3 kilos by then. this means i have to be super strict and I’m actually dreading my nans bday because i have to drink and also jambes italian this saturday means my cheat meal will be at a restaurant so instead of indulging in his pasta I’m going to have to make a good choice. good luck to me.
Day 3 - BAKED BEANSSSSS half of a 420g can, meant to be with 20g spinach but I decided against it but still had my 40g of avocado on it’s own. I love baked beans and I feel like it’s sort of a naughty breakfast. I am so so so so sore after pump yesterday I feel like a cripple and am really upset cause I’m meant to be doing cardio today and I don’t think I’m going to be able to run. I’m definitely going to go for a walk no matter how much it hurts and then hopefully that’ll help my legs stretch a bit
Day 2 - my granola tasted amaaaaaaazing was really happy with this one :) natural yoghurt with strawberry and apple purée mixed with cinnamon and granola.. 298 calories well needed after smashing my first pump class in months, and I’m so so proud of myself that I got up and did the 6am class, something I’ve never done before! And then went straight to work after. I’ve had headache past 2 nights so I’m seeing that as a good sign as my body getting rid of all the toxins
Day 2 - First time I’ve eaten steak I don’t even know how many years and it wasn’t too bad.. Must say I enjoyed my roast beetroot and pumpkin more but it’s progress 👌 feeling so sore after pump this morning and dreading cardio tomorrow 🔫
This is such a big accomplishment for me! Actually making up my own granola muesli to have for breakfast tomorrow morning. Usually I would never attempt this. I’d just buy a low calorie granola but my problem was I couldn’t find a low cal one sooooo I made Michelle bridges granola! It’s smells amazing so I’m thinking it’s going to taste awesome but mainly I’m just proud that I’m cooking it for myself and trying new things ✌️✌️✌️
First cooked meal on the 12wbt and it was amazing! Feijao 💃 put a tad too much chilli powder in it but was still so good and really filling. only 327 calories except I accidently put double the beans in so this would be a bit higher but I didn’t have my egg for a snack this arvo so I guess that makes up for it. after the first day I must say I’m not feeling that different except I feel really good like proud of myself. I just pray I can keep up the strength to keep going 👏
for lunch curried egg sandwich without the curry powder because I forgot to get some from the shops 🙊 2 boiled eggs, half a tablespoon of light mayo, lettuce, cucumber and 2 wholemeal slices of bread 341 calories 👌
My mid morning snack at 11am.. Seeing as I has breaky at 8.30. 1 small carrot (60g), 3 celery stalks (120g) and 2 tablespoons of skinny hommus - 133 calories 👍👍 Just did RPM class at 9.15, they’ve changed it since I last did it but it’s even harder! Or I’m just super unfit but that’s what it’s about - if it was easy then I wouldn’t be getting anything out of it 😌
1st day of my journey - berry bruschetta for breakfast before I go and smash an hour RPM class. I use 2 wholemeal pieces of toast, 60g of low fat ricotta and 80g of mixed berries. Only thing is I got up too late and my berries were still semi frozen and I think next time I’ll wait for my toast to cool before I put the ricotta on. Overall it’s so filling and pretty good. I got through 1 slice and didn’t even want anymore but I ate both to make sure my calorie count is up. it’s a bit bland, ricotta doesn’t taste like anything to me and the berries would be sweeter fresh but frozen is easier. only 302 calories 😊
