So week 4, this weeks been a mixed week for me emotionally. I’m stressing about an assignment and have been stressing about marathon training. Physically my niggles have somewhat settled down.
In terms of my thinking slimmer I’ve continued to listen to my slimpod at night as I drift off to sleep and I’m still seeing the differences. I’m leaving food on my plate and turning down the offering of snacks. I even managed a trip to costa without having something to eat. The snacks I am having are much healthier. Its also helped me accept my body a bit more, accept it for what it is and not focus on an ‘ideal’ weight so much.
Mutu core has as always been easy to fit in. A quick 10 minute round isn’t hard to do. I’ve cracked the exercises off by heart now so don’t have to turn on the video. I’ve been doing one set in the mornings, albeit with a 2 year old climbing all over me, and one set in the evenings once the kids are in bed. Marathon training has been a bit all over the place and I’ve decided the most sensible thing to do is going to be to not do intensive on run days. I need to be careful not to push myself too hard so days I’ve run its stupid to push harder so I’ve been fitting it in on my ‘rest’ days from running.
I’m noticing my core does feel stronger. I don’t know if theres any change in inches. I know there isn’t on the scales. But I feel happier in myself. So I’m happy about that.
