A week in my shoes 

Quite often I get asked ‘What’s a typical day for you?’ unfortunately I don’t really have a ‘typical’ day from one to the next. Due to my training and work, every day is different so it is much easier to share with you a fairly typical week in my shoes at the moment.


So, I am currently 10 weeks out before the big competition date and this is what was in store for me last week:

Last week’s Daily Calorie Intake: 2350- 40% Carbs, 35% Fat, 25% Protein.


Wake up, Protein Oats and Food prep for the day

9 am– LEG DAY! Glutes, Quads, Calves with Artur

12.30pm– HIIT- Sprints and Abs

4pm-9.30pm- Work- It was press night for the new show so a fair bit busier than usual

5pm- Travel back to London

7.30pm– Home for dinner and relax


So as you can see this week was pretty busy and hectic for me. Lots of training around work and blogging. Due to my shoot on Sunday and working a few extra hours, I also didn’t have a full rest day this week.  Normally I like to keep Sundays (where possible) as rest days because it is really important to give your body a break and let it recover. Rest days are just as important as training days so that you don’t burn out. Next week I will be taking FULL advantage of my Sunday rest day as well as brunch at 26grains with Tyla!

There is a little insight into a week in my shoes. Coming soon will also be a post about what I eat in a day too as I know that fascinates quite a few of you too!
