Fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.

I know that all too well but these couple days I couldn’t help but fail in my meals. I was too busy, too tired and too excited to spend time out instead of staying home preparing and cooking. As a result, I ate the last week at least 1 meal a day out and they cause me nothing but bloat. 

I feel out of energy. Plus I am more inclined to order unhealthy stuff when I’m ordering home but when I’m cooking myself, I don’t crave such stuff. I ate fried onions and veggie burgers and normal burgers as well. And all my ordered meals contained bread and they make me feel down. There is a very obvious difference I feel when I eat out vs I eat home, and even more when I eat raw. The less meat and the more raw I eat, then I am full of energy. I literally do feel it. But knowing this is not enough at times. I need to plan better. So ok, this week was a fail in food.

But then, I did well in the training department. After missing a couple WOD last week, when my baby was sick, I picked up from where I left. Weight training on Saturday, run/jog 5.5 km on Sunday. Monday I took a rest day and this evening I’m training again. 

This morning I took the extra time to prepare my meals. I had 2 eggs, a nice piece of cheese and a huge tomato with olive oil for breakfast. No bread. I need to get rid of the bloat. For lunch I have a slice of eggplant/meat I have cooked yesterday and a huge bowl of salad. In the afternoon I will have 2 large carrots. The days when I go training, I don’t have dinner because I don’t feel comfortable training with my stomach full. I just eat a small meal in the afternoon and fuel up with dates whenever I have a sweet tooth.

Last week I drank my green smoothie in the morning for breakfast but I haven’t had smoothies since then. I need to pick that habit up again.

My baby is cranky since Wednesday. Runny nose and decreased appetite. Coughing rarely. No fever- that’s a good sign. I hope she’s theething finally. And that it’s not a virus or something.

So I missed yesterday’s training. Not that I care. But I wish she was well and happy and we could be home yesterday evening and have fun.

One week past and no she’s STILL not teething:) Everything looks like she is but no, we don’t see these pearly whites. She’s much better now, only coughig very rarely. Eating and playing well. So we don’t mind the teeth much. Only that we are going on holiday this Saturday for 10 days, on a yacht and being on board with a teething baby is frightening. But this is what’s going to happen. Thanks Murphy.

Week 36 Exercise log

I started the week pretty motivated.

Monday- 25 min midday run on treadmill+20 min weight training

Tuesday - 75 min leg day (lots of squats, box jumps, 60 KG deadlift 5x3)

Wednesday - Rest (45 min easy walk)

This is before Monday’s exercise. Sorry for the crapy quality. I know I am still large but my belly is shrinking and it’s not loose anymore.

Exercise log

I did my 1 hour training on Saturday. I was there early so I did 50x4 rope skipping. Man that was exhausting. I finished my training with additional deadlifts, climbing up to 55kg.

Sunday was no rest, we did 1 hour slow jog/power walking with my husband and our little Z in her stroller.

This week’s WOD plan:

Monday - 40 min jog/run

Tuesday- 1 hour training

Wednesday - rest

Thursday - 1 hour training

Friday - 40 min jog/run

Saturday - 1 hour training

Sunday - 40 min jog

I decided to up my exercises this week, to boost my metabolism and also to train for the 7K ahead.

Back on track and staying there

My daughter is 9 months old as of yesterday. 9 months. I can’t believe how all this time has passed away so fast. She is crawling now real fast, standing up holding on to stuff, waving her hand, dancing to every music, babbling, hugging and laughing at people. Life is hard at times (when she is sick and noone around to give a hand) but it is exceptionally beautiful. I’m nothing but grateful.

Healthwise, I feel good. Much better than the past years. I swear by weight/cardio training 3 times a week, no matter what. I cook very often and don’t indulge too much. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I lost my sweet tooth. Incredible, I know. I don’t crave ordering treats when I’m out because I don’t like their flavor anymore, most is too sugary. At times, I fight with addictions, things that I was used to eating but things I dont really like anymore. I ate ice cream at mom’s yesterday. She asked if I wanted to and I said yes because I have always liked ice cream. But I don’t like it that much anymore. When eating it, I tried to be conscious about it and I was aware I didn’t like it when I was eating it. It was a small cup anyway. And when my husband asked for a second cup, I didn’t take it. That is an obvious win from my side. Not only refuising the second cup but also and more important, being aware of my addictions and tastes.

Once in a while, I bake a cake at home which has 1/3 of the sugar in the recipe and treat myself a nice slice. I try to eat raw everyday at least once and I’m not bad at it.

My weight has been so up and down the last 2 years. First I lost 4 kg, then I was pregnant and gained 15+ kg, then I gave birth and lost some and then I was madly hungry when nursing and put on some more.

Finally last month I began watching what I ate (portion control) and I lost 4 kgs. I need to lose 10 kg more to go back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I am in no rush, no stress. 

I am happy where I am. I am getting stronger and I love it. Yesterday I did deadlift with 50 kg, 7 reps. Lying dumbbell press with 10kgs each, 11 reps, 5 sets. Lovely even to think about it.

I will be running a 7K next month so I’ll start training for it.

I do yoga after my workouts, instead of strecthing but I would love to dedicate more and special time for yoga. It heals me and it makes me stronger. That is this month’s goal too. More running and more yoga. 

This is literally me and my husband

My green juice of the day. A bunch of chard, parsley, 1/2 banana and a full slice of watermelon makes this yumminess. I’d pput pineapple if I hadn’t run out of it because it makes the final touch to perfectness:)
This week has been sooo great. I returned from holiday Saturday morning and since then we have only been eating home made food. I’ve been cooking at home regularly as my little cutie pie started eating solids this week for real. She likes the food and I’m so happy with what she’s eating. She drinks vegetable soup daily and I put literally all the veggies in it:) Today’s soup had chard, sweet corn, green beans, carrots, potato, squash, peas, avocado and a piece of lamb, all cooked with steam. A touch of olive oil and a batch of veggie soup for my Zeynep is ready.
My workouts are strenous this week. Yesterday’s WOD was:
1000m row + 12 kg kettlebell swing + burpee + sit up + pull up
500m row + 12 kg kettlebell swing + burpee + sit up + pull up
250m row + 12 kg kettlebell swing + burpee + sit up + pull up
I finished 1000m row in 4.31 min, 500m row in 2.07 and 250m in 0.58min. The total WOD took almost 1.5h.
Plus I ran twice this week so that makes it a good week too.
Come week #28, I’m ready for you:)
