Week 3 Day 1…

This week I’ve started week 3 of my C25K challenge. It was a bit more challenging this time stretching the jogging intervals to 90 seconds and then 3 minutes.  The time was less , 28 minutes instead of 31. It must be a way of putting variety into the session.

Here are my results 


Less time and I still got over 4km. So I’m happy about that .

I survived 10 minutes on the dreaded stair machine… really I hate it but to build up my butt muscles it’s the best.

Sticking to my goal…

Today…

I’ve been slack at posting this week gone by. 

I went to Bali for work and took bf with me, it started off amazing, then went sour for a tiny bit. After some communication we were back on the wonderful and amazing track of love ❤️. 

I’ve been on a high ever since. So happy. 

I’ve also slacked off with the gym, can’t believe it’s been a week since I’ve run in a treadmill 😐.

My goal …

I’m following Discovering Your Happiness and she has a fitness goal to reach, it’s great to see her get closer and closer to it. So, I decided to follow suit.

My goal is to run (or at least jog) 5 km in 8 weeks. I have downloaded the C25K app (couch to 5k) and I started it yesterday. I got to 4km on the treadmill in 30mins jog/walk 1min/90secs with 4 minutes warm up at the beginning (which I ran :)) and 4 minutes cool down. My average speed was 7.25km/hr. 

My aim is for fitness not weight loss, I may (see I said “may”) try a charity event some time in the near future.

After gym dinner…

Super easy meal tonight.

Porterhouse steak with mixed vegetables.

Porterhouse steak

Mushrooms 

Red kidney beans 

Cherry tomatoes 

Baby spinach 

I cook my steak for 5 1/2 mins turning every 30 seconds on medium high heat. Vegetables are popped into a pan , mushrooms first until they get colour, red kidney beans next , then cherry tomatoes until warm. Add baby spinach last cook until spinach is slightly wilted( you don’t want to lose all the good stuff).
