8 week challenge - 4 weeks down



I feel like I haven't actually put enough effort in to the last two weeks. I am still not making enough time for myself to be able to work out in order to get the results I want. I MUST get better at this. I must start being okay with taking time for me!



My nutrition has still been pretty good but I have been very loosely tracking over the last two weeks and was no where near as on point as the first two weeks which makes me a little disappointed in myself especially since I didn't prep and I've skipped dinner on more than one occasion.

Writing this down at least has made me realise I need to get my butt back in to gear and organise my time a little better and not be afraid to leave Achilles in daycare for an extra half hour or so to get in some exercise. Given he never wants to leave anymore, I should definitely feel less guilty, although I do love my time with him.

As some of you know, I enlisted the help of YouFoodz to try and take care of my dinners but Ben and I ended up eating them all during the weekend so I have organised for some more for next week JUST IN CASE I find myself in another pickle, they will be there for me. Plus, I had to try some more of their dinners considering we weren't really happy with the first lot. It's such a good helpful concept for those of us with really limited time and I would rather be working out and spending time with Achilles than worrying about cooking my food (at this point in time anyway).

Here are the meal plans for week three and four which I kept to probably 80% of the time.

Week three meal plan was as follows:

Meal one:
Healthy pancakes (if you want the recipe, let me know)

Meal two:
50g almonds
Meal three:
150g chicken breast with giant salad

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

Meal five: 
 2 x eggs
50g brown rice

Meal six: 
1 x protein shake (made on water) with:
40g peanut butter
1 banana

Week four is/was:

Meal one:
Healthy pancakes

Meal two:
100g full fat Greek yoghurt

Meal three:
150g chicken breast with giant salad

Meal four:
1 tin sweet chilli tuna
1 piece burgen bread

Meal five: 
150g chicken breast
150g vegetables

Meal six:
1 scoop protein powder
20g peanut butter
1 banana


I didn't weigh or measure this fortnight as I didn't want to be discouraged. I will just wait until the final scan now I think. Keep the suspense going!

  1. Hi Tahana, I think you are doing so well with taking on this 8 week challenge. It was you that always told me that small changes make the biggest impact. I was just wondering with your meal plan how you fit in 6 meals across the span of the day. Would you mind letting me know the typical times that you eat each meal so I can get a better idea of how to spread smaller meals across a full day?

    Thanks!!!
