1st November I started the 17 Day Diet as having tried this plan once before a few months ago, I really believe in it...its the one plan that makes total sense ~ as I am at goal weight I have only done Cycle 1...Cycle 4 is how I try maintain my day to day eating plan...
The reason I decided to do 17 Days again.....
I'm off to Cape Town in 20 days time for a 9 week holiday and want to get myself back into this way of eating ( a little stricter ) so that I have a few kg's to play with over Xmas and New Year...birthday party's and family time.
On waking ~ warm lemon water and coffee
2x scrambled eggs
Did one hour of Kettlebell from 9.30 - 10.30am
Tub sheep's Greek yogurt
2x Tsp Flaxseeds crushed
I feel asleep on the couch while watching tv, when I woke up it was too close to dinner time to have lunch so skipped lunch and had another snack.
I taught a mixed cardio class from 7.30 - 8.30pm
Got home and jumped in a bath as my leg was really sore and my ankle very swollen
For those who don't know...last Wednesday I went for a run with a sore calf after my Monday's run, the section with lots of stones was covered in beautiful Autumn leaves so stepped in a stone I could not see...
My ankle cracked and I fell straight down to the ground.
I put out my hand to support my fall so now also have a sore and lethargic arm
I will not be able to run for sometime...
and know I have to rest it as much as possible.
Day one was good, I had no cravings for anything.....
The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.
