Day 36/37/38

I woke up with heaps of energy at 4:45 this morning and I was ready to leave for the gym 10 minutes earlier than usual! I always get that Adrenalin kick whenever my body runs low on sleep/energy... I will surely crash tomorrow.

8 minute EMOM
4x3 push ups (on toes)
4x4 push ups (on toes)

For time - took me 19 minutes
Push ups (I did 4 on toes then after than it was all on my knees until the last 10 or so where I was doing negative push ups due to muscle fatigue)
5kg medicine ball sit ups

I did not really feel anything from this workout to be honest. My arms hurt a little but that's probably it.


Okay, okay my arms do actually feel really sore! It hurts to raise my arms :(... I decided to skip yoga and hit the gym today instead. I'm feeling totally "fluffy" from eating a huge dinner late last night.

Warm up
12 sit ups
8 crunches

7 minute AMRAP
10 leg raises
15 sit ups
Rounds: 4

7 minute AMRAP
10 6kg kettlebell swings
10 6kg squats
Rounds: 7

For time - I took about 6 minutes
2x50 single skips
2x100 single skips
2x50 single skips

30 minutes of cardio; 5.5km/h treadmill.

I was feeling HUNGRY after that workout and my trip to the grocery store and I was craving cookies. In attempt to avoid excessive refined-sugar consumption and to achieve complete satisfaction, I baked a giant (and totally clean!) blueberry cookie for lunch.

40 grams rolled oats
25 grams coconut sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
50 grams cooked chickpeas
25 grams peanut butter
50 grams almond milk
30g Bulk Nutrients Earth protein in vanilla
Some blueberries
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Blend the ingredients all together then scoop it on to a tray lined with baking paper. 
  • Add in the blueberries (or even chocolate chips -yum!!). 
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes or until golden (it's okay if it's a bit raw as the ingredients don't require cooking to be eaten safely + you can pretty much just eat the batter...). 
  • Drizzle with some cacao sauce, add some fruits and enjoy! I initially planned to make some banana icecream to go with it - how perfect would that have been? - but I wasn't really up for anymore cleaning hahaha. 
The result was a gooey, chewy texture. Not really like a cookie, i'd say... Maybe i'll try to bake it for a bit longer and see how that goes! I was too eager and impatient to wait any longer than 15 minutes. This totally to about 600 calories and was not 801010 friendly :P - nonetheless it was delicious and I would definitely go through this process again!


I decided to try having some coffee before I left the house for the gym this morning. I'm not sure if I had slept well or that the caffeine-kick gave me the energy - well no matter the cause of motivation, this morning's workout was a baked-cake of success with a sprinkle of extra strength.

Warm up
2x20 pvc backsquats
2x10 step ups

Every 2 minutes for 8 rounds
Complex: 3 clean + 2 front squats + 1 jerk
2 15kg complex
2 17.5kg complex
2 20kg complex
2 22.5kg complex

I was tempted to try 25kg but I had failed all my previous attempts to clean and jerk 25kg. I should have tried it though because I was feeling extra strong (-er than usual).

For time - I took 9 minutes (I think)
21 - 15 - 9 reps
8kg kettle bell swings
Box jumps
Wall balls - not sure of the weight

Usually require a lot of peer support from my coach and the other people in the class but this morning, I was able to push myself the majority of the time. I'm quite pleased with that.

I have two 25-minute oztag games with no half time tonight. The aim is to always be there with support so my team can score and ultimately win =^_^=
