January Jean Club update


I got back from a 3 weeks break on 8th, my flight was delayed by a few hours so it was a tiring journey. I started work the next day and finally today I found time to write. By now most of you know I am now Mrs T ;)
I want to share a few more posts about the wedding but before that I want to share with all of you my January Jean Club result
I lost 2 kgs in the last 3 weeks, I am sure it was all the running about which goes with a wedding that made me lose those kgs. I was good with my exercise plan and my eating but did not expect to lose any weight. Though I did not manage to run as many days as I wanted I managed to do a lot of circuit training. Most days ended very late for me (1:30 am or later) so I would find it really difficult to get up in the morning for a jog. I was also surrounded by lots of family and friends on most days, these are people I was meeting after ages so instead of going out for a run I would workout at home while spending time with family
Things that kept me on track:

  1. Making exercise plans with my sister and friends. I did most circuits with my sister, I went running with one of my closest friend. I went sprinting alone and I went for my long run with T (that was a good way of spending time with people I love) 
  2. Being very stubborn about not eating unhealthy. I did not budge once, if I decided to eat healthy I ate healthy. If I was eating out I controlled my portions. I did my usual sharing and one bite for desserts  (except once when I ate one entire ice-cream cone)
  3. Improvising my plan. My original plan was to run most days but I found myself not being able to manage that so instead of letting my day go waste because I could not fit in a run I would improvise my plan and do circuit training. There were days when I did three 15 minute workouts because I was so busy 
  4.  All my blogging friends, reading all the blogs I read always keeps me on track. Most bloggers remind me to keep going

My circuit training
1 min squats
1 min jumping squats
(5 rep)
1 min plank
1 min push up
--
1 min lunges
1 min jumping lunges
(5 rep)
1 min side plank
1 min mountain climbers
1 min side plank
--
1 min sumo squats
1 min burpee
(5 rep)
1 min donkey kick
1 min leg raise
(5 rep)
Most days this was how my circuits looked sometimes I changed the exercises depending on my mood. that's all for now. Next post back to wedding fun

Keep Reading I will Keep Writing
