After falling off the wagon over the holidays, I am officially back in the game.
I’m sticking to a mainly Paleo diet, however if it’s just not possible in certain circumstances then I just eat as healthily as I can.
I let myself cheat at the weekends, and pretty much just eat what I want, but I’m working on trying to control this a bit more, and reducing the amount of cheat meals I have.
I’m now doing a 5 day split workout routine, working on different muscle groups each day. Although I’m currently waiting for my local Crossfit box to be set up and I’ll be first in line when it’s eventually ready.
My goal, as it always has been, is to just be the healthiest and strongest version on myself that I can be, If I just so happen to reduce my body fat and up my muscle mass while I’m at it, then that’s just an added perk ;)
I’m not disheartened at all by the fact that I had a break over the holidays, I know what work I need to do to get back to where I was, and I know that it will come more easily this time. These things take time, and relapses and mistakes before you eventually get it right.
Just because you fell off the wagon, doesn’t mean you can’t get back on.
These photos were taken today, so technically a week into my Paleo journey, but I’m still using them as my ‘before’ photos.
Sorry it’s been so long since I last updated! Just covering what food I bought and how my first Paleo week has been!
If you want me to carry on making video updates please ‘like’ this one, if no one is watching them then I don’t see much point in making them…
Hope everyone else is doing well, if you have any tips or questions, let me know!
Today I am taking a break and not working out, as well as having a couple of cheat meals. Personally I think it’s important to not only have a day of rest from working out, but to also schedule in 1 or 2 cheat meals a week, just to keep you sane! So tonight I am having some pizza and sweets then watching a film.
What day(s) is/are your rest day(s) and favourite cheat meals?
Didn’t manage to get out and get anything today, I guess I will just make do with what I’ve got until I can!
P.S. Just had a shower, hence the damp hair.
Just realised I mumble quite bad in this video, so sorry if you can’t hear me very well, also, sorry I look so gross, felt sick/had a headache all day today. But here you go! My first vlog, will let you know what food and shiz I get tomorrow.
Think I’m starting to see some definition…
To help me stay on track etc. What do you guys think? Would any of you be interested in watching them?
