Our best friends here in NZ have decided to go back to the UK and they are leaving this week, they have been like our family for the last 4.5 yrs and our youngest children are very close, so it's very hard to say goodbye. My youngest son is very very sad and keeps asking me why they have to go, it's really hard to deal with as I feel just as upset and sad as he does!

anyhow I am still very low about it all, but have managed not to completely lose the plot with food and have still got to gym and done my TT workouts. Saturday I also added in the total body ten circuit which is really good, super quick but super hard, really good to use when you are short of time.

Saturday - totaly body 10 circuit

Sunday - 1 hour walk very brisk pace, nice to be out in the sunshine

Monday - day off mentally and physically tired from the weekend emotions and 10 circuit

Tuesday - got to gym at 5am this morning, it's freezing here in NZ today, freezing fog everywhere , damp and dreary, not nice at all.

but hit the gym and did Workout A from booty for wife

General Bodyweight Warm-up Circuit
• Go through the circuit TWICE using a 2-0-1 tempo for each exercise.
• Rest 30 seconds between warm-up circuits.

Day 1 – Workout A•

1B) Stability Ball Leg Curl – 12 reps (2-0-1)

I used the treadmill for this.

Feel good today, but tired from hitting gym so early!

Am also doing a fast today so hope I manage the day through, .

Hey Katie

Well done of the fast! That sounds like a great day for you. How you feeling after the workout? It sounds like you are keeping on top of food and your emotions. That's the big challenge isn't it? I have found logging into the TT forums everyday is really keeping me focused. Like I said previously, if you need anyone to talk to or help you keep focused, please let me know. I'm probably on most days.

The social stuff is always hard to balance. My social life is 75% focused around food or drink. Going out to dinner, meeting up for a beer after work etc. So I can understand having visitors can be a challenge. You're not alone their mate!!

Keep at it, sounds like you are doing really well.

Talk soon
Tanya

Hi Katie,

Just wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and posting on my thread. Just checked out your challenge 9. Wow!! What fantastic results you had! Sounds like you are on track with workouts and food, I am sure you will reach your goals with this challenge.

So sorry to hear about your FIL. What a terrible blow for your family. It is so hard to be so far away from family, especially at a time like this.

I will definately take your advice and log my food as this is where I struggle the most. It is amazing what I put in my mouth and not even realize that even little bites and tastes count as well.

It will be great to have a partner in crime for "Booty for Wife" workouts. I will be cheering you on in your challenge. Go get 'em!!

Smile food & exercise today

Exercise :
30 mins of yoga

I have a sore back and thought the yoga might help but it hasn't so am going to see a physio tomorrow, hope I can still train at the gym, I will be gutted if I have got an injury so early in the contest

Nutrition:

porridge/semi skimmed milk
grapes

cottage cheese
poppy & sesame seed crackers (not good)

grapes

2 mandarins

tuna/salad, toms, carrot, cucumber, peppers

yoghurt - meadow fresh vanilla lite

2 slices vogels museli toast

total cals for day: 1280

There were a few things that sneaked in which were not that great, eg the crackers! Also had 1 Oreo biscuit which I have just remembered about so will have to add that in too.

Not too bad on the calorie front and managed quite a bit of fruit & veg, but am sure I can do better.

Planning another fast tomorrow as I am going out for lunch on Friday and can't do it then, and planning to get weighed on Saturday morning, I think!

Cheers for now Katie

Hi Heather

thanks for the messsage, I have actually managed to practice what I preach today and logged my food even though I don't think it was 100% OK, but calorie wise it has not turned out too bad. There were a couple of things that sneaked their way in which I should not have had, eg oreo biscuit and the poppy seed crackers, but I am not letting them put me off track.

Am hoping the back injury does not stop me training or the physio can at least offer some alternatives I can do. I am supposed to be doing workout B tomorrow, with the eccentric chin ups, how are you finding them?

I am quite short, so even though I use a bench to reach the bar, I still have to jump up so find I am swinging a bit when I am lowering down, so it's taking even longer than the 5 secs! They are hard, but definitely work, but its that part of my back which is sore so not sure I will be doing them tomorrow. Might have to mix my workouts up a bit this week until back sorted.

Hope you are doing ok with the workouts, def keep in touch and spur each other on, really good that there seems to be a few of us doing the Booty for Wife.

cheers for now Katie

Hello me mucker, glad to see you back I'm so sorry about your friends leaving I hope you're feeling better - try and sweat it all out in the gym! Have you tried making your own crackers? You could make them all healthy and then munch away. I believe the world is a better place with crackers and hummus...

ello Mrs! Crikey not heard that saying for a while mucker! Good ol UK saying!

You might need to give me a recipe for making crackers, not sure mine would by any good!

Am good at muffins, yoghurt cake, chocolate cake, chicken balti, veg balti, and other stuff that I should not be eating, but when it comes to the healthy stuff, I am rubbish!

But am still sweating away at the gym. So glad you are here for another contest, really love your sense of humour I really miss that over here!

hope you had a fab time on hols, am guessing you made it to vegas this time

willl PM you, as we have booked flights to come home for a holiday, would be great if we had time to come up your way!!!

talk soon, cheers for now Kate

Smile could do better!

OK as the title says, I could do better!

Nutrition yesterday was a quite a bit over my allowance, I am trying for around 1400 cals and managed just over 2000 yesterday - ooops

fasted until lunchtime but then we had a staff lunch which I sort of had to attend, it would have been frowned upon if I had not gone along, so although I was sensible with my choices, I only ate about 1/3 of my main course (pumkin rissoto), I did have desert and 1 glass of wine.

Prob was when I came home and did some home baking and over indulged..... less said the better

I also went to physio yesterday and he worked on my back so I had to miss the gym yesterday/. Good news is that it feels loads better and he says I can still train!!

So hit the gym this morning and did workout B from booty for Wife.

Will post that soon.

Nutrition today has been OK, fasted til lunchtime, then I was out for lunch again.

2 small chicken satay kebabs

1 glass of wine

slice of citron tart

since then I have not had anything apart from water.

and am not really hungry yet, so should be OK.

I will post my workout later

hope you are all doing OK. Training will be difficult this weekend as hubby is working day shift and gym is only open until 4pm, so too late to train. But I might be able to get yoga or walk in.

Cheers for now Katie
