Yaay!!! I was so excited to hear the “ping” of my emails yesterday and the arrival of my BodyCoach Plan… It’s here, it’s here!!!
I couldn’t really get a good look at it when it first came through because I was doing my training for Oncology Massage, in the West End, so I emailed it to my husband and asked him to download and print it out. He actually hole punched it and added it to a folder which made it even easier to look through.
So, I had decided to go for the vegetarian option. I’m not completely veggie but I wanted to keep costs low and get as much nutrients into me as possible and I think that this is a really good way to do it. I will miss chicken most and there’s different types of fish that I wouldn’t normally eat but I knew this before I signed up, so it’s not at all a shock or disappointment. I did have my friend Jo send hers over and some of her meat recipes look great, but I know I made the right decision.
I like that there are a lot of amazing recipes to choose from, and I mean a lot in cycle 1. I was nervous that there wouldn’t be but safe to say that there is no chance that I’ll be lost for ideas. The only thing that I have to say is that there isn’t a lot of snack ideas but as it’s only cycle 1, I’m not going to complain and moan about it!
Now, the whole idea is 3 main meals with two snacks in between and at least 3 litres of water.. on rest days, all meals are low carb and in training days, I have a refuel meal at least 60-90 mins after my HIIT session. This is more than I am used to eating in a day but I think this is also one of the reasons why I have gained weight.
We decided last night that I could have a last take away and a bottle of fizz! Here’s what we had… chicken fried rice, chick balls, chips and egg rolls! Oh, and a bottle of prosecco.
Tonight I will go shopping and pick up the things that I will need for the next 4 days recipes. I’ll do my first HIIT in the morning and I’ll probably head on over to Instagram and YouTube for my very first impressions.
I have done a lot of HIIT in the past with @Gymguymark so it won’t be a shocker for me although I’m really not all that fit at the moment! I’m also used to having 1 hr sessions so 30 mins is going to seem really odd and almost incomplete for me. I do love exercise, but I just got so busy studying and caught up with starting my own business as well as having two young kids, that I lost myself.
I’ll post my “before” pics, and measurements, tomorrow… well maybe not the pics but my weight reading. I hope to achieve a lot in the next 4 weeks… it’s almost 4 weeks to the day that I turn 40!
