Week 6 Results

August 26, 2007 at 11:12 pm 3 comments

So much for planning to succeed. Meals 1 and 2 went to plan yesterday, but that was it. Found myself unexpectedly in town for meal 3. Did I find a cafe to order a tuna salad? No, I went to Starbucks and had coffee and their blueberry cheesecake. (Yummmm. No, dammmit, BAD blubber, BAD BAD BAD.)

Went to the supermarket to get the rest of the ingredients for the chicken and squash in cream sauce recipe (we’d run out of mushrooms) but hubby fancied a roast chicken. Ok, I thought, roast chicken and salad. That would be fine. But then I had mash with it. Without having worked out first. For readers not familiar with Precision Nutrition, you get veg at every meal, fruit sometimes, but are only allowed other carbs when you have done a workout in the previous couple of hours, when your body is more receptive to processing the carbs for energy rather than storing them as fat. And ideally they should be wholegrain complex carbs, not mashed potato from Smash. Find out more about Precision Nutrition here. Then I craved something sweet, so I made chocolate banana brownies. So I ate five meals yesterday and only two were PN-compliant.

Also, apart from the class I taught in the morning, with maybe 15 minutes of demonstration time, I didn’t do my Turbulence Training weights workout. My legs were like lead and I could barely stand up from my chair, let alone do squats and stuff. I did manage to get it done today, meaning I did all 3 TT workouts this week. But because I need a day off before my next one, I won’t be able to do it till Tuesday. I had hoped to do Monday and Wednesday because we go away Wednesday evening. And I’m still a touch over an hour short of my 5-hours minimum exercise for the week. Maybe I will try Aluschka’s Free Yoga DVD. Aluschka is an amazing (and amazing-looking) woman. Check out her story on the PN Challenge forum, here.

Anyhow, as you can see from the sidebar, all this weak-assed compliance has finally taken it’s toll. I’m back up to 15 stone 2.8 pounds, although my body fat has held steady at 44%. This is attributable to me gaining another 1 pound of lean mass. But my waist measurement is up 1.5 cm! The workouts are doing their job, but I’m sabotaging it with what I’m eating. Only 52% compliance this week – my worst yet. I’m disappointed this week, not so much with my results, but with myself.

    Just stumbled onto your blog tonight and love the title! I also love the fact that you list your weight in stones, something I had COMPLETELY forgotten since my trip around Europe. I also love the pics in your posts – I should do more of that now that my hubby’s home more often and can play photographer. Again, LOVE your creative title!

    Hi Mrs B,

    Thanks for the feedback. Let me know if you start one of your own.

    Sara,

    Thanks so much for missing me, that’s so sweet. I felt so guilty when I read your post that I had a mushroom omelette, just for you. 1 egg plus one egg white, about 100g mushrooms, and around 15g stilton cheese crumbled in. Just what I happened to have in the fridge but really delicious – I’ll make it again!

    Anyway, I’m back now, and will try and post regularly again.
