Back at the gym :)

Hey guys,

So I’ve gained weight 😦 and a lot of it. It’s more worrying and frustrating when your clothes, especially your FAVOURITE clothes don’t fit like they used to! I have no excuse to be honest. Yes, I’ve been busy, but I’m sure I could’ve squeezed in a few hours of gym in the week and maintained a healthier diet. Snacking during exam season is definitely my weakness!

My weight has really started to make me feel insecure, so I’ve decided to join the gym again after a whole year and a half (maybe more :/).

This post is just to share my first day back with you guys, what I did and what I ate. I’ll be posting more food posts as I love experimenting with food!

For breakfast I had a bowl of muesli with skimmed milk and some green tea. I must say I quite enjoyed it. Luckily for me, my brother is quite a health freak, so we always have some form of healthy option always available! hehe πŸ˜‰

Me and my friend spent roughly 1 hour 30 minutes in the gym, 45 minutes cardio and we spent the remaining time on the toning machines. Felt great! Really hope we can stick to this! Having a gym buddy always helps keep you motivated.
My lunch was delicious, especially after an intense workout. It consisted of:
  • Tuna and sweetcorn (with very very very little mayonnaise) and some chilli flakes
  • Cherry tomatoes and cucumber topped with some caesar dressing
  • Piece of garlic bread (okay..maybe I should have avoided that lol)

 

Β and of course, a glass of water with lemon and lime (just a warning that this made me run to the bathroom a gazillion times!)

 

So I was kind of hoping to stick to the ‘no eating after 7pm rule’ because that really worked for me last time but unfortunately I had work, so ended up having dinner at roughly 8.30pm.
The portion was a lot smaller than lunch and literally took less than 10 minutes to make. It consisted of:
  • Sweet potato mash – very easy to make, peel the sweet potato (I used half a potato), add some hot water and stick it in the microwave for roughly 6/7 minutes maybe more if required.
  • I lightly buttered some mushrooms in a pan and then added sweetcorn and kidney beans and two cherry tomatoes for a juicy flavour. I then seasoned it with very little salt, pepper and of course chilli flakes! I really struggle to eat bland food or food lacking spice.
Hope you all enjoyed this post, many more to come πŸ™‚
