Maxine’s Challenge week 5 has disappeared without a hitch and since not much happened this entry will most likely be short. My nutrition has been pretty spot on this week, better than it has ever been, to be honest! I’m finding that I’m having the protein oats for breakfast every morning. It’s so much easier than having to worry about cooking eggs or organising the greek yoghurt. About once a week, I pre-measure the oats with the protein powder into containers, it makes it so much easier for me in the morning. There is also much less mess & clean up afterwards. It’s just one bowl & one spoon to add to the dishwasher, then I can get on with getting ready for the day. They are also so easy to eat while I’m getting ready. If I made eggs, I feel like I’d have to sit at the table to eat them.

As for my workouts, they haven’t been too amazing yet. Like I mentioned last week I don’t have any equipment to do the weight sessions. It’s becoming really difficult to improvise at home. In other exercise news, I’ve finished week 1 of the Couch to 5K program. I think that I’m going well, but I just need to stick to it now! I’ve also started training for the Bloody Long Walk, which is a 35km walk to cure Mito. For that I went to the local botanic gardens with some colleagues, we walked 2 laps which are approximately 10km. I was lucky enough to spot some kangaroos there but they hopped away before I managed to take any photos.

I didn’t even take any relevant photos this week. But I sure do have lots of photos of my puppy! Here he is snuggled up on the couch with a blanket.
