12wbt: Week One (Reflection)

What a truly terrible start I have had to the Michelle Bridge's 12 Week Body Transformation. How else do I describe getting sick on the second day of the program and missing four workouts!?!

I was soooooo motivated when I woke up on Monday. I had my gym bag packed and all the food for the week was ready to go in the cupboard/fridge. Having never been to the gym before work I was apprehensive about how I would go with getting a treadmill to use and having time and space to shower and prepare for the day, but to my delight it was a breeze. I think i'm really going to learn to love morning runs at the gym.

The next day I made plans with friends to attend my favourite HIIT gym class that afternoon but by lunch time I knew I was not going to make it. I came down suddenly with a cold/flu/bug that sucked my energy and left me feeling gross. 

I missed the next 3 days of training too while I tried to sleep and rest away the bug. Throughout these days I tried really hard to stick to my 1200 meal plan but deviated a couple of times when planned meals made me feel unwell.

In regards, to the meal plans and recipes within the 12wbt I'm not 100% sold on it. My breakfasts this week included packaged pureed fruit which are jampacked, full of sugar that I don't think my body needs. I'm trying now to tweak my meal plans to suit the nutritional views that I hold and reduce my sugar intake (and up my good fats), while still staying in that 1200 calorie range.

Come to today (Saturday) and I feel brand new. I've come home to celebrate my Mum's birthday and we decided to smash out a #supersaturdaysession workout by bike riding into town, where we meet my Dad and dog for a coffee in the sunshine. 

I'm super pumped for Week 2 and really ready to hit the gym hard this week (to make up for all those missed workouts).

oh man, unfair! That's a huge bummer when you're all motivated and held back by being sick! But what can you do but begin again. I am looking forward to reading this, I have been so unmotivated lately and I feel like a walking blob. I need some pushes!

I love these pics ps, your dog is so cute!!! Happy birthday to your Mom!

Oh I understand the walking blob feeling so much. It's crazy how much lighter I feel just eating well for a day or two :)
