Tri photos

So there is photographic evidence of my triathlon attempt:-

Looking a touch porky there, but that's after 2 months away from the gym and an extra kg fat going on. So, not too hard to fix, should take about a month back in the gym again. But still, not the prettiest sight.

It was my first proper gym session today, since before we went skiing and it was a touch hard. I had to drop the reps on some things and I missed out the jacknife on the Swiss Ball completely:-
  • Warm up on the rower; 1km at L7 (took 04:30!)
  • Dual arm lateral pulls; 2x 12.5kg, 3x10
  • Walking lunges; 16kg kettlebell, 3x18
  • Squat and clean to shoulder press; 9kg dumbbell, 3x16
  • Reverse flye; 1kg on Kinesis, 3x10
  • Dips; 3x12 (superset with below)
  • Planks; 3x60s (superset with above)
  • Reverse crunch; 3x12
  • Bicep curls; 2x7kg, 3x8
  • Cool down on the cross-trainer; 10 minutes at L7
Which clocked in at 52 minutes of exercise and 474kcals burned (including background).  Of course, my glutes started to make themselves known about 10 minutes after I'd finished so I'm going to really feel it in the morning!

Mm, tuna fishcakes with roasted veggies and a spoon of chilli sauce for dinner:-

B - greek yogurt with 1 scoop, fruit compote and grape nuts
S - banana
S - Dorset Cereals bar; 3 berries and cherries
L - salad; Tesco Alfresco salad (lettuce, carrot and pepper), prawns and cherry tomatoes
S - 1 scoop in skimmed milk
S - 2x mini Babybel
S - beef jerky
 D - tuna fishcakes with roasted veg (parsnips, sweet pepper, courgette) followed by Tims Dairy yogurt (toffee)

  1. Kat, much as I love you, I seriously can't see anything unpleasant looking about that photo. Perhaps it's the size and the watermarks but you look lean and fit and the clothes don't look too small for you. I can understand you want to get back to where you were, mind, so congrats on getting back to the gym :).

    Love the shades!

  2. I think you're being too hard on yourself, there is nothing porky at all about your picture! You look fit and healthy.

    Well done on the tri!

  3. Don't be daft, theres definitely nothing porky about you in that photo! You look great, strong fit and healthy x

  4. So yes, I am a bit hard on myself, but I see soft legs with no definition where there was before I had 2 months off exercise. Trust me, the swimming photo was a -lot- less flattering; the word "sofa button" springs to mind!
