8 Week Challenge Update (the first two weeks)


Firstly I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of you for the support and encouragement I have received after my last post (if you missed it, you can read it here)! It means so much to me and has definitely motivated me to try even harder.



The last two weeks have been hard but not as hard as I thought they would be.  The biggest adjustment has been the amount of food I was eating.  I ended up adding up the things I had been eating over the last few months and there was an average of 1000 calories over-eat PER DAY! This is what happens when you don't track what you eat and you disregard the nutritional information of everything you put in to your body.

To say I have been perfect over the last two weeks would be a lie. I haven't had or made the time to exercise more than twice. Granted those two sessions were amazing but still not enough!  I have had one cupcake and WAY too many coffees. Whilst this doesn't sound bad and it's not the worst, I definitely aim to do better over the coming six weeks and really put more effort in to being active.

Week one meal plan was as follows:

Meal one:
30g rolled oats
40g blueberries
100ml full fat milk

Meal two:
100g full fat Greek Yoghurt
100g banana


Meal three:
300g serve of healthy fried rice (if you want the recipe, let me know)

Meal four:
1 x protein shake (made on water)

Meal five: 
300g serving of Mexican beef mince mix (if you want the recipe, let me know)

Meal six: 
1 x protein shake (made on water)

This is based on my BMR (Basal Metabolic rate) of 1500 calories. This week was sitting around 1600 calories given I haven't been working out.

Week two is/was:

Meal one:
30g rolled oats
40g blueberries
100ml full fat milk
1/2 scoop chocolate protein

Meal two:
100g banana (no i don't actually weigh this, it's just approximate)

Meal three:
150g chicken breast with 12g pesto for flavouring
100g broccolini
100g brown rice

Meal four:
1 x protein shake

Meal five: 
150g chicken breast with 12g pesto for flavouring
100g broccolini
100g brown rice

I had an inbody scan at the start of the 8 week challenge so I will share all my results come April 7 when I get my second scan but I did weigh and measure in after two weeks and here is where I am at:

Weight: 3kgs down
Waist: 10-20cm down.....I'm not sure exactly what point the inbody scanned measured so it's either 10cm (biggest part of the belly under belly button) or 20cm (if they measured my waist, right on my belly button)
