Things are going great guns, I'm, doing 1 hour cardio most mornings and training in the evenings. This is making the fat come off and so far in 4 weeks I've lost 3 kgs and have still managed to fit in some cheats (3-4 protien bars and some small snack bags of yummy fruti and nuts). I've been slack at posting cause work is killer at the moment. By training partner B is great fun and training with her during the week is great motivation cause I know someone is waiting for me so I gotta turn up and I have to be switched on cause we are doing the programms I have created.

Here's part of an email I sent her this morning which explains my trainig yesterday - hopfully if I keep doing things like this I'll shock my body and will be better than ever!

"Yesterday the gym was super quite when I did my cardio. Got there round 7.20am. I'd been reading about HIIT on spin bikes so thought I'd give it a go, warmed up for 5 mins and got stuck in:
Gear 10 for 1min,
gear 18 for 30secs,
Gear 10 for 1min,
gear 18 for 30secs.... and so on for 30mins then steady at level 12 for 30mins. I was sooooo sweaty and shattered, did some abs and went home for breakfast, I was totalled, it was great.

Did some high rep leg stuff in the afternoon

100 single leg presses (20 each side at a time)
50 squats
Box step ups for 4mins non stop
Box step ups with Squat (4 sets of 12)
100 stiff leg dead lifts

finished off with 20mins HIIT on the spin bike - KILLED IT

This morning I did the spin bike again for an hour - it's fun doing something else. But I was so hungry when I got home I nearly passed out in the shower.

That kinda training plus our walk and the stairs have nailed my legs - love it."

Train hard everyone - if work gets under control I will aim to update a lot more often.

Love the motivaion you got going there.

Be careful with the frequency of HIIT - you'll get best results if you do it a maximum of 2-3x per week and it's best done on a leg day so you don't overwork the legs on days you should be resting.

zedDon't worry about anything. The main thing is you are keeping your life on track, and where it needs to be.

You can always get in touch though, if you do have a few frustrating days :-) :-), but thne you knew that already.

As ever I will say that I am very proud of you, and I am wishing you all the love, happiness and success you can get.

Keep on being you Eve, and keep on smiling. I am 10,000% behind you, and I want you to have the very best in life.

You deserve it.

:-) :-).
