Journal day 21-22 (7-8 September 2011)

Day 21 was 100 % cheat free diet wise. I was just way to busy and did not have the time to track everything or to write it down. Gym was nice. I had two sessions one the morning and one the afternoon.

Wow today was a successful day in the gym and I really enjoyed it, weights or not ;-).

There was one difficult part of my day and that was that I had to quit Netball :-(! My heart is sore about that because all those girls became so close to my heart. I have been struggling with shin splints for a while and it just got worse in the last few weeks. This is where I had to make a difficult decision and that was to give up this sport! I have to stay focused on this 12 week challenge and cannot afford to get hurt in a extend to stop training.

Then about my blog…I must confess that the thought about not going forward with it came to my head, because of the fact that I thought this was going to be more interactive and a motivation to me as well. It did not turn out to be that way though and I see that a Facebook page work better for this! But then again I started this blog first of all for myself and then to motivate and to be an inspiration to others.

On a lighter note: Do you like sushi?? Well I had sushi on Saturday and wow I actually liked it;-)…Now believe it or not I started craving for!

Me and my sister decided to make a Saturday sushi day but first I wanted to ask Gareth from USN if Fashion Sandwiches salmon and avocado is allowed to eat in this challenge. The answer was YES! Whooohooo that was the best news for my day. He even said I must ask the waiter for extra salmon and ginger (ginger help with the digestive system) interesting! At least Saturday sushi dates after my Zumba class and this is a aerobic class that I easily burn 500-700kcal so that make up for the little bit of soya souse or what!

Challenge wise it’s going great; diet is strict and part of my lifestyle now. I cannot believe that I haven’t had a sweet in so long. I have a sweet tooth so this is an amazing thing. I am so committed to succeed in this challenge even though it gets so tough at times I focus on the end result. We can all do it if we set our mind to it.
