The future's bright, the future's... Fight Camp!

Looking for my next challenge I stumbled across a flyer in The Griphouse where I go to my Muay Thai fitness class. 'Fight Camp' it said, 'Willpower Required' it said. Well that had me intrigued.

When I got home I booted up my laptop and went to their website. What I saw made my jaw drop and I instantly wanted to sign up. And sign up is what I did!

Fight Camp is an intense 6 week fitness programme where I will be working out 4 mornings a week, 7am to 8am, consisting of 2 boxing/muay thai sessions and 2 strength and conditioning sessions.

Yesterday I went along to get weighed, measured, pictures taken and pay my fees. I weighed in at 85.4 kg/13 st 4lbs. Not entirly sure what my bodyfat % is at the moment, but i'll find out and post it on here. Met the 4 trainers who all seem really nice and easy going.

I start tomorrow morning at 7am. I'm a bag of nerves, a little bit scared but also very excited to get started! Thankfully, the first monring session falls on the holiday monday, so I will have a chance to get over the shock I am sure my body will go into.

I'll be sure to let you know how my first session goes.

Progression and what's different this time...

With the end of the year on the horizon it's only natural that we all start reflecting on the year we've had. I've been doing the same and can honestly say that I've had such a good year.
I usually get to this time of year and start to feel a bit down, mainly because I regret having not done something about my weight...again, nothing more depressing than another year passing and feeling full of regret. It was feeling like that this time last year that had me make a promise to myself that I was going to make some big changes, determined to not let another year pass and feel like a failure. I am so glad that I did and that I kept that promise to myself. This year, I am finishing the year on a high, feeling full of hope and determination for next year.

Getting started was the easy part, like most diets, you start out full of good intentions and motivation. I started with Slimming World in January and I went in all gung-ho. Things went well for the first couple of months, I …

My X-Rated Baked Eggs

What makes them x-rated? I hear you say!
Well, one, they look downright sexy. And two, the noises you make when you eat it will be x-rated ;)
Surfing around on Pinterest looking for some new breakfast recipes to try I came across a few variations of baked eggs. Some are called Turkish eggs, others use Moroccan spice mixes to add extra depth of flavour. The dish is really versatile so you can adapt the flavours to suit what you fancy. I made mine a spicy breakfast version which you could easily make for dinner as well. Rich and moreish it is packed full of protein, low on calories, filling, and super tasty. It's a winner all round.
This is my recipe for 2 portions. Bear in mind that you can chop and change ingredients for what you have available: 3 muscle food chicken chilli sausages Handful frozen onionHandful frozen peppersHalf can haricot beansCarton of passataHalf tsp frozen chopped garlicTsp paprikaTsp Sriracha (use chilli or chilli flakes if you don't have Tsp olive oil4 eggs

Training is the easy part!

Training only requires me to make a couple of simple choices, showing up is the first. How much effort and how hard I am going to work is the second. It is three to four hours out of my whole week. 4 hours out of 168 hours.

It is, in fact,the choices I make outside of training that will have the ultimate impact on the progress I want to make and the results I want to see.

Am I going to choose to watch more tv and relax on the sofa this evening? Or am I going to choose to get up off my ass and go for a walk/do some housework/cut the grass?Am I going to choose to have that packet of crisps that is going to push me over my calorie goal today? Or am I going to skip the crisps today and work it into my allowance tomorrow or the day after?Am I going to go for the family size bag of crisps and to hell with the calorie deficit for the next five days? Or am I going to go for the regular 25g packet and just have a little indulgence?Am I going to reduce how much I am going to eat over the next fe…
