I just couldn’t help myself. I had to write something…!

So I wasn’t going to blog this week as I wasn’t intending on training, but I needed to send some videos of my big lifts to my online coach before I head off on holiday, so I thought I’d just write up a quick summary of my rest week.

This week is also the first week of my diet. Unlike Tara’s, my diet food actually resembles diet food! 😉 If only I could lose weight and eat as much as she does. It’s just jealousy!!

Diet food! Friday night's dinner. So inspiring...

Hey ho. It’ll all be worth it once I get down to 60kg and don’t have to stress pre-comp! It has worked though: I weighed in at the comp at 65kg. Saturday morning this week I was 63.8kg. Most of that is water weight as I was pretty carbed-up for the comp, but I was aiming for 64.5kg. I’ll take that little head start, considering next week’s going to be full of bratwurst, cheese and the best chocolate in the world!

I even managed to make a fairly good diet food choice at Flesh and Buns in Covent Garden. Thankfully, I haven’t had much of an appetite recently, otherwise this would not have been sufficient! I had the grilled sea bass with miso and coriander, pickles, Japanese buns and Korean sesame chicken wings (I only had 1).

Flesh and Buns: poor lighting and tiny portions. This was not worth £23!!

Anyway, here’s the small amount of training I actually did. Add to this a HIIT session on Wednesday morning and Friday evening (after squat failure!)

Not too shabby. Managed to match my bench PB even though I haven’t benched in ages! It must’ve been the bread and cheese I allowed myself at lunch 😉

Bread, ham and cheese. OK so not traditional diet food, but it was Saturday...
