12WBT | week 6 review

I’ve been so busy of late that I haven’t even had time to update week 6’s review. And now I’m almost at the end of week 7!

My Week 6 was by far the most challenging. It was my birthday. And like most birthdays there were drinks, food, more drinks and more food! However, I didn’t let my exercise slide and although I went over my daily calories from Wednesday – Saturday, the effort actually paid off on the scales!

Here is my week in review:



Monday brekkie

The turning of the weather means that mangoes are out!!!
Untoasted Muesli with Mango

Monday dinner - Thai Pad See Ew Beef

Exercise: Lunchtime gym session; cardio blast with bike, rower, Xtrainer & treadmill. Running on the treadmill is so much easier than outdoors!

Monday calorie summary



Tuesday brekkie

still obsessed with mangoes & muesli!

Sushi for lunch….

Exercise: BodyPump class at the gym in the morning.

Tuesday calorie summary



Wednesday lunch - fruit salad

Wednesday night was pre-birthday drinks with friends from work. What was planned as 1 or 2 drinks turned into an epic night that I paid for the next day with a hangover. On my birthday.



Thursday lunch - edemame beans
pre dinner cocktail
pork & cauliflower mash at Quay
Quay's Jackfruit Snow Egg

Jay took me to Quay for dinner. The food was amazing. Especially the Jackfruit Snow Egg which I proclaimed as my all time most favourite dessert! To say my calories were out the window would be an understatement…

Exercise: due to my gigantic hangover, and the fact that it was my birthday, I choose Thursday as my rest day.



Straight back on track.

Friday lunch - rice cakes with salad
Friday dinner - steak & lentil salad


Friday night BodyBalance class.

Friday calorie summary



Saturday brunch

At our fave cafe for Saturday brunch. I had poached eggs, with mushrooms & spinach and brown toast.


My SSS session was with Bondi Rescue Lifeguard Reidy at Shift60 gym in Bondi. It was pretty awesome and a real challenge. You can read about that session HERE.
