I’m starting week 9 a little late as I have just spent a long weekend in Djibouti (I’ll post about that tomorrow night when I can download my pictures). I am now fully recovered from my chickenpox and even enjoyed a lovely 14 km hike on Friday. Onto week 9, carbs are my passion and weakness. There is nothing yummier than carbs or is there.
Last night I had a delicious Djiboutian Fish Skewer and a fruit platter for dinner. Saying that the past few days have proved extremely difficult to maintain a healthy diet when I can’t speak the language and pre-packed lunches have been carb central. Apparently all non-French speakers must love hot chips as somehow a fruit salad was interpreted as chips and a bowl of hot chips was served (yes I ate them all as I LOVE hot chips).
This week I am excited to train again with much more intensity than the last month. I am acutely aware after my 14 km hike that in less than 3 months I will be climbing a 4,167 mtr (13,671 ft) mountain very soon I will need to start training for that but for now I am focused on returning to normal training.
|Sunday||Rest Day in Djibouti|
|Monday||Zumba Sculpt & Tone and Zumba Abs|
|Tuesday||Michelle Michael’s Workout DVD|
|Wednesday||X Trainer 5 mins
Complete body dumbbell workout
|Thursday||Pilates Perfect Body DVD|
|Friday||Super Session: Complete week 8 fitness test (yes a little late!!) Zumba live / 4 km run|

I am not sure how successful I will be at keeping the carbs out of my diet this week as I have a dinner tomorrow night and then a seminar on Tuesday night. Might have to eat the vegetarian options for the remainder of the week. Looking forward to a busy week after my restful and enjoyable 4 days off.
Keep smiling when you train; it brings a little sparkle to your training.
