Work out at least 3 times this week: I’m back with a vengeance this week! I worked out 5 times this week (a variety of gym, weights and HIIT workouts) and loved every minute of it. There really is a lot to be said for having a break from fitness over Christmas and New Year, because this week I’ve had that great ‘aching all over’ feeling that you get when you have never exercised before. I feel reinvigorated and ready to blast off a few pounds of fat and gain some muscle!
Eat at least 3 healthy vegetarian dinners this week: I thought this would be a fun way of getting more vegetables into my diet, although I have been using a few Quorn products which although low in fat, I’m sure are full of additives that aren’t ideal. It might just be the January ‘healthy eating bug’ but I have definitely consumed more veggies than usual this week. Here are a few of my vegetarian meals:
Vegetable soup with quinoa and coriander
Things I’ve learned:
- Meat substitutes are convenient and tasty but have played havoc with my gut
- Quinoa is a handy ingredient to increase my protein intake
- Rest periods are tough but probably worth it in the long run
