Day 48 of 84
Transitional Day – Sydney
I got a good 8 hours of sleep last night! Normally, I averaged 6.5 to 7 hours. I guess it’s my body really asking me to catch up from insufficient sleep the previous night.
As soon as I woke up, I went for my HIIT run (18 minutes) outside. It was cold and a bit foggy in Sydney’s upper north shore this morning – I already miss Brisbane’s warmer weather! It was good though as I was forced to keep my pace up thoughout. I jogged to the local park, then started running once I hit the path that runs around and through the park. I’ve lost some pace after not having done HIIT for more than 10 days, so I think this session was a good warmup to get me ready when i get back to my Surge cycle.
My meals were clean from meals 1 to 4, then on meal 5, I again fell into the trap of dessert (a scoop of gelato). That’s enough dessert for me – no more until my next planned reward meal in two weeks (at the end of round 1 of Metabolic Surge). I wrote before I travelled that I planned to have a maximum of two meals this weekend that do not stick to a clean plan; now I have already got to that. I’ll watch what they serve on my flight tomorrow closely and will be ready with fruit and protein bars should I need to switch foods. Tomorrow evening when I arrive in Manila I’ll have to be very careful with what I eat and let them know immediately what my fitness plans are.
I was able to sneak my camera into the bathroom after breakfast this morning to take my daily progress pics. I’m not satisfied with how I looked today; this is extra fuel to shred hard until I get to my target date! I’m going to use my plane time to refocus and recommit to my goals.
