Maxine's Challenge Week 9
My nutrition has been out of whack for most of Maxine’s Challenge week 9 as well as week 8. Most of this week I ate a tin of tuna & crackers for lunch or a tin of tuna & a cuppa soup. Not the best options but I made do with what I had. I was planning on being more organised but that just didn’t happen.

Grand Final day was a bit harder to manage in terms of temptations. It should have been easier as it was at my house! I probably should have filled my drinking cup with water from the start of the day. I ended up having 2 cans of soft drink then stuck to water for the rest of the day. Lunch was a steak with salad, then we shouted everyone pizza for dinner. While everyone else was having four or more slices, I found the two smallest slices I could & stuck with that. Two separate people told me that I had lost weight. I assured one of them that I hadn’t, my weight it still the same & it was agreed that I had just toned up.

Sunday was another training session for The Bloody Long walk. I was up at 7 that morning, to be at Casey Fields by 8 to start. I tracked a total of 12.44km in 2 hours 32 minutes. The wind was blowing an absolute gale! My feet & hips are a bit sore now but I don’t appear to have any new blisters, which is definately considered a win. We are about 6 weeks away from the actual event now. I feel like all this training is really going to come in handy. Poor Harley can’t handle too much more of my training, he is done after about four kilometres.
