My willpower muscle needed a break last week, hence my apple crumble recipe tonight, it’s back to work tomorrow for my willpower muscles. I think it was feeling a little fatigue I’ve been constantly using it since I started my new healthy lifestyle at the start of the year.
Not sure why I had a break from my 12WBT program. I think it was hump week. It’s so easy to do, it’s a slippery slope from 1 day to 1 weekend to 1 week. I did the shopping today so that I wouldn’t have any excuses from tomorrow.
I have had great results so far, I’ve cut down on soft drinks, almost nil now, cut down on coffee to maybe the weekends (which start on fri for me). At the start of the program I set mini milestones for myself at 4 weeks and 8 weeks, I did reach my goal for my 4 week mini milestone which I was surprised about, I didn’t think I could achieve it but there you go. I did it!
So I lost 5cm of my waist & legs and 7cm of my hips. I’ve lost 5kgs and have 7kgs to go. My fitness has improved significantly on my good days I can almost finish a spin class I flake out on the last two songs. I can run 1km under 7mins which I’m amazed I can do, did not think I could run for more than 2 mins.
I just need to flex my willpower muscles again and give it a good workout, I’m sure if I measured them they’ve probably doubled in size. I know they’re much stronger than before. I need to stay on track now and make sure all this good work doesn’t go to waste.
