Maxine's Challenge Week 10
During Maxine’s Challenge week 10, I somehow managed to jump back on the workout motivation band-wagon. I’ve wanted to get back into running again but that first run after a break is always the hardest. I’m suffering such a lack of motivation for that right now. I just want to be better at it already!! I have been doing some Fitness Blender videos again because I figure if my overall fitness/lung capacity is better, I will find it easier while I’m running. I’ve also signed up for Blogilates because there is a calendar that lists a workout circuit per day. I haven’t really looked into it too much yet but I assume it ties in with the Blogilates YouTube channel. I am somewhat familiar with the channel now as I’ve done a few of the workouts.

As for the nutrition side of things, I’m still loving the protein powder with greek yoghurt. It has the consistency of pudding so it really does feel like a treat. I’m quite over the protein powder & oats combination, although it took me a lot longer than I thought it would. I’m not a huge fan of eating the same things all the time. Variety is the spice of life after all.

This week I am very determined to prepare my lunches in advance since I have been so slack with that over the last two or so weeks. I think preparing really does make a difference to my progress. If I have planned out what I am going to eat, it is much easier to stick to as I have already made a decision about it. Which means less time I spend procrastinating or making not so wise choices. I find it helps to make smarter choices too, rather than denying myself of some things.
