I'm on a dupe account, as I wanted to enter the TSR transformation contest. This is going to be my blog, where I will post my progress.
To give a bit of background, I have been healthy eating and exercising for many years now and over the past year or so have lost a bit of interest and focus with it all. I am hoping this blog and entering the TC will further motivate me to keep a healthy lifestyle that I can stick to.
My stats - age 18, height 5'4
I do a lot of outdoor running; currently I run about 10k and 5k runs - I want to shorten my time for these and run farther.
I am also trying to do more weight training.
I am going to eat clean, and have been enjoying making clean recipes, some of which I may post on here.
Also i'm a pescetarian
Thanks for checking out my blog, and if any of you have your own, feel free to post them and I'll have a look!
Yesterday, I ran about 10k - time 55 mins approx. Pretty pleased with this as although I've been getting a bit below this a few months ago, after all the weight I've gained over Chrsitmas, I really had to push myself!
My polar FT7 watch came yesterday also Totally stoked, just a bit gutted it came after I went running haha.
Eating wise, I bought the nakd cocoa orange bites from Tesco, and seriously they're amazinggg. They're totally clean, gluten, wheat and dairy free and contain about 8g protein per half bag :O
Today, I did the 30DS level 1. Ive been doing this on and off for over a year now, but I'm going to do it on the days I don't go running/cycling etc. Although it isn't extremely challenging, I think it works well at strengthening the muscles. Later on I think I'll go for a long walk.
Edit: went on a two hour long walk/hike around the area I live in.

Yesterday (14th) I did the 30 DS l1 and a 35 min HIIT bike ride. Really enjoyed it! Each interval was about every 30 seconds. Burned 300 cals by doing that alone, which I'm impressed with, with it being just cycling
Friday and Saturday (17th and 18th) were rest days as I was very busy. Sunday I went for a 30 min walk but had to come home as I developed a fever, became extremely cold and fell asleep in front of the fire (yet continued to shiver). I had photosensitivity, muscle aches, lack of appetite and lethargy. Woke up today and my throat is excruciating - tonsils have white spots so visiting the doctor tomorrow. I'm guessing it's tonsillitis or a viral infection. Obviously this means I will not be able to exercise until I have recovered. I am however trying to eat healthy when I do eat (which is very scarcely as it hurts so much) but aside from that there's nothing else I can really do except gargle salt water and sleep! Hoping for a speedy recovery as I feel like s*** and I'm really missing running etc!
On 1st feb I went the gym, did HIIT on treadmill and step machine, as well as various weight exercises. Pushed myself hard! Burned 620 cals
On 3rd Feb I went on a 10k run burnt 520 cals. Fell over on my knees near the end and cut through my running pants :s it is funny looking back but at the time it hurt like a bitch! I think it would have been a PB but I had to walk the rest of the way home
7th feb (yesterday) I went on a 8km and achieved a PB
Had a rough couple of weeks because of various things but I'm getting back on track now. I had eaten badly and obviously haven't been keeping up with the exercise but my life doesn't revolve around exercise etc! I am going to be stricter with what I eat now and get into doing daily exercise.
Life has been mad over the past few weeks, and there's been extremely important things so this blog has been the last thing on my mind. I still have been exercising though; I've done a lot of walking, still going the gym to do HIIT and weights, I've been cycling and running also. Eating hasn't been great but I've tried my best!
