Maxine's Challenge Week 7
I think Maxine’s Challenge week 7 was a success! I’m feeling great & finding it much much easier to make better food choices.

This week I actually measured the right amount of Greek yoghurt (I usually buy it by the litre) and the right amount of protein. OH MY GOODNESS, why did I not start measuring it earlier? It tastes sweet and has the texture of pudding. I have had it for breakfast and I have also had it for dessert. I’m thinking about serving it as a fruit dip on Grand Final day. I think it would also great on top of pancakes.

This week for exercise I have been doing a Blogilates ladder work out each day. It’s only a short YouTube video (around 8 minutes) but I’ve found it to be useful, as well as challenging & it also gets the heart pumping.

I also had another training session for The Bloody Long Walk on Saturday. This time it was 15km. I have a few blisters on my feet & was quite sore that night but other than that I am surprised with how I feel now. I’m really getting excited about it!

I’ve also signed up for the Color Run in Melbourne on November 16. I signed up by myself but am hoping to find a friend to go with on the day. This will be my third colour run and I’m excited that I might be able to run/jog the whole way!

I won the footy tipping competition at work & they gave me my trophy early. Turns out that I was that far ahead that I had to lose every game from the start of the finals and the person in second place had to tip every game correctly to beat me!
