TT today end of week 8!

Day 56
Week 8, Day 7
(Week 3, Day 7 of official challenge)

It’s the last day of week 8! I only lost 200g this week, but at least it is something and I’m now very, very close to getting under 59kg. That will be some time next week for sure. In week 9, I’m continuing with the TT 30 day Fatloss program, training Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and I’ve set some nutrition targets to keep myself awake when it comes to the daily munching.
Total TT fatloss so far is 7lbs
Total challenge fatloss is 2.6lbs

Workout D

A1) Snatch Grip Deadlift. Um.. I don’t think this exercise is for me (or I’m not made for it more likely). I need to leave this one until I can go through it with my physio. I did one set and hurt my back and my knee. I tried again on the second superset and then got wise and changed to the BB RDL which I mastered on workout B. My back in particular was giving me ‘keep this up and you’ll regret it’ messages – I have learned to listen to those! I think maybe with the knee, ankle, back problems I have too many issues for the snatch grip deadlift. For a start I can’t squat low enough to pick the bar up without going up onto my toes (ankle issue). Yeah, I’m quirky.
1 set snatch grip deadlift 1 x 8 with 10kg on the bar
BB RDL 2 x 8 with 15kg on the bar
A2) Side Plank 3 x 5 with 5 second hold

B1) I was not game for the Good Mornings and changed to the reverse hyper, which I think targets the same area. If anyone has better substitutions then PLEASE pipe up.
3 x 10
B2) Forward Lunge 3 x 8 with 7kg DB’s

C1) 1-leg Ball Curl (yikes!) 3 x 12
C2) 1-leg Hip Extension 3 x 12


I found today difficult and was having hunger and sugar cravings all day as well as being tired. Maybe lack of sleep or the mental exhaustion of studying for my exam which is next Friday. Next week I’ve set a nutrition goal to have 90% compliant meals, which gives me about 4 meals to indulge my naughty habits and many, many more meals in which to get it right! Saturday night is a big party and I’m planning to relax a little, have a few ouzos, involve myself in the greek dancing and try not to flirt too heavily with the waiters, all of whom are so gorgeous that it’s hard not to stare. I may even do the limbo if my back feels up to it.. no, scratch the limbo idea – after a few ouzos my pain receptors may not be as reliable as usual….
