So I didn’t quite get that early night. But I was up at 6am, I perservered for a while… and then went back to bed! Oooops. I set my alarm for 9am, but either I slept through it, or it didn’t work, as I woke naturally a bit after 10AM!! ARGH. Immediately I thought damn, I can’t do the 10:30am class now, but I could do the 6:30pm instead. But then I realised HANG ON. I can still make it! So I jumped up, got changed, ran out the door, and I made it just in time! It was my 3rd class of the new Pump, and I’m getting more familiar with the routine. Very glad I JFDI because an evening class would have upset our dinner routine, and I was asked to play an extra netball game tonight, which I wouldn’t have been able to do if I had a 6:30 class. Phew!
My Wednesday netball team is part of a larger group that also plays on Monday nights, and they needed extra players. So between Pump and then netball, I was pret-ty excited about aiming for a 1000 calorie burn!!
I played GS for 3 quarters, and I could see I was no-where near my calorie target, so I swapped to GA for the last quarter, to have a run around. But it wasn’t enough. And I was OK with that, I gave it my all, and it was still up around the 900 mark, which is not bad!
BUT… then another team needed extra players (YAY!), so I was keen to play again to get to 1000 calories!
And, I DID IT! (cue Dora, lol) My 1st Super Session! In fact, I didn’t just do it. I SMASHED it! 1351 calories!!!!
I tell you this. There isn’t a food item or taste in this WORLD that is better than how I feel right now!
I feel STRONG. I feel CAPABLE. I feel like I CAN DO ANYTHING I put my mind to, and it’s ONLY WEEK THREE!!!!
I’ve been playing netball for most of my adult life, since primary school. Although I have dodgy ankles as a result of countless injuries, I still love it! I hope to continue playing for many many years, and can’t wait to introduce Miss E to junior netball. We joke that we are priming her for the Australian Olympic Netball Team in 2028! 😉
Today’s meals are a bit out-of-wack, due to sleeping half the morning. I grabbed a banana on my way to Pump, and had breakfast at lunch. So technically I skipped lunch (meant to be Thai Pumpkin Soup). But I made up for it with other snacks. Not quite how I had planned the day, but that’s just how I roll.
Poached eggs on vegemite toast.
Coffee & muesli biscuit. Not an ideal lunch by any means, but I was able to have a coffee date with a girlfriend, without any temptations! All good 🙂
Those Carman’s bikkies are great, really tasty. Actually it is about the same calories as a regular lunch anyway, whoops.
Penang Chicken & 1 slice multigrain bread (to mop up the delicous sauce!). This is so yummy, I can’t believe it’s only 257 calories (not including the bread).
Rice pudding with strawberry jam & fresh strawberries. OMG. YUM!! Seriously.
I wanted to lick the bowl.
Tomorrow – Tuesday. It’s last chance training. I’m going to do either a 9:30am Fitbox class, or a 4:30pm Combat class. I haven’t done any boxing for a looong time, but I really enjoy it. Combat has boxing too, but no resistance.
I *may* have done another sneaky weigh-in this morning, and I CANT WAIT for Wednesday!!!
I hope your week is off to a brilliant start!
