Monday is one of my 2 favourite days of the week. My other favourite day of the week is Friday.
Why is Monday one of my favourite days? It all starts with Friday!
A few years ago I started seriously exercising and joined a gym, I lost about 15kg on that adventure and that’s probably, still is, one of my proudest moments, loosing all that extra weight.
Between then and a few years ago I’ve been dieting and exercising on a regular basis, gain some weight, start serious exercise, loose weight, take it easy, gain weight etc etc etc.
Then about 4 years ago (I can’t keep up, time moves so quickly) my medical aid/’gym membership‘ were set to increase, as they do every year. I found out that my fiancée’s medical aid with me as a dependent will cost less than just me as a main member on my medical aid, so I switched to her medical aid ASAP (but no gym membership though).
I cancelled my gym membership and decided I’ll buy some weights and a bench and make a home gym. So that’s what I did.
I bought a workout bench and some weights. No more excuses why I can’t go to gym. Since I opened my Home Gym, I’ve exercised religiously, following different workout plans, but found one that I’m sticking to for now, my second run on this 12-week workout/diet plan; and still loving it.
I gym 3x a week and maintaining my weight and BF%, although I would still like to drop about 2-3% body fat, my goal is to be under 10%. Almost there. It’s my goal for this year!!
So back to my favourite days. It’s all got to do with the diet plan I’m on.
Monday through Friday I ‘eat clean’. No Carbs and No Sugar during the week.
Friday is the start of ‘eat what I want’. Sugar and Carbs and Sweets… Ok that sounds like I’m pigging out but I’m not, I just eat a moderate amount of sugar & carbs and not checking what I eat and enjoying what I eat, that’s why I love Fridays, oh and Saturdays…Home Made Pizza Night!!!!
By Sunday night I am actually excited for Monday… Monday means eating clean again and I’m hitting the gym again! If my gym weren’t at my home… the gym would have been my second home!
