So Far, So Good

I re-committed to the 80/20 lifestyle on Monday and so far it’s going well.

I did 20 minute HIIT workouts on Monday and Tuesday and then tonight I ran 7km. It’s all about building stamina and toning up!

I’ve got a 10k race in early July and I’m aiming for 55 minutes – it’s the we love Manchester 10k. Gotta make sure my legs are strong!

Take a look at the beautiful scenery along the canal route I ran tonight…



As for food, I’m probably still at 70/30 but I have made some really delicious meals.

1) baked cod with hassleback potatoes and garden peas with roule – so good!

2) baked chicken marinated in herbs and evoo with a salad of spiralized courgette, carrot and apple – total game changer!

3) more baked chicken (this time in thin sterips and nice and crispy) with a salad of carrot ribbons, cucumber, red cabbage and wait for it…orange segments. SOOO good, juicy and interesting – better than your average salad!

The salads are lovely on a night when the meat is still warm and just as good the next day for a portable lunch at the office!

Having said that, I’ve also had chocolate each day this week, so I need to work on that! I’m trying to find a healthier alternative that will still get rid of cravings.

What’s your favourite guilt-free “treat”?
