What do you have for breakfast? Dehydrated Sweet potato what is that like? Is it like smash potato, you add water and you get mashed potato?

:lol: No, but thanks for the mental image. It's dried veg, like dried fruit but with less sugar. I really like it, you should try it! I don't know why its called dehydrated not dried, just what the packet said. But yeah, the mango and sweet potato and milky chai tea was my breakfast.

It's yummy (and good for upping calories!) but I've never bought it, I make mine... just soak some cashews (4 hrs min. or overnight) and blend! you can add more water if you like it thinner and stevia (or whatever sweetener you like) to make a dessert version :) oh and the longer you keep it in the fridge the thicker it will get.
Thanks for the support :) But I never feel deprived, even when I eat too little its always yummy food I enjoy! I love food but the past few days have been painful, eating when I feel full is starting to make me dislike eating. I think this is counterintuitive :roll: and as I'm still overweight & overfat I feel very odd making myself eat all day... here's hoping my workout tomorrow gives me a huge appetite so I won't dread the dining table *crosses fingers*

-Training-
Cross Trainer 10 mins, level 12, random hills
Deadlifts- 20 @ 50kg
Incline bench press- 3 x 4 @ 30kg
45 degree Single Leg Press- 3 x 4 (on each leg) @ 60kg
Standing Scoop Fly- 3 x 8 @ 3.75
Standing Reverse Fly- 3 x 8 @ 1.25++
Wood Chop high to low 2 x 10 @ 6
Wrist Curls- 4, 3 @ 1.25
Back Extension- 2 x 12
Easy bar lift up in front? ***

Glute exercises on all fours- out to the side, then up keeping a bend in your leg. And lifting your foot with glutes whilst legs are at a 45 degree angle.

Sauna 15 mins- stretching
Spa 15 mins- constantly doing glute exercises
Walk 1.5 hrs

Deadlifts were embarrassingly light but seeing as it was my first time I was only working on form. Which is getting slowly better but I really need to work on not rounding my shoulders/back on the way down.
Incline bench is harder but good, I'm starting at a low weight but it feels like I'm working me chest more.
Leg press with one leg is harder than I expected. I kept slipping to the other side and keeping my other leg on the floor was a challenge. But my knees which I was worried about felt fine.
The glute work was at my request so i'm trying to enjoy the burn but isolating the muscle and not letting my thighs take over takes all my concentration!

-Nutrition-
Dehyrated sweet potato
Dried mango
Chai Tea
4 bowls of recovery/Protein Chia pudding- spreading it out made it much easier to eat.
Banana
Bowl of Green Soup
Mixed Salad w. sun dried tomato mustard dressing
Bowl of Spicy Carrot & Chickpea Soup
Mixed Salad w. vinegar & oil
Dried Dates
Row of dark chocolate
Mixed Nuts
Chai Tea

-Training-
Cross Trainer 5 mins, level 12, random hills
Deadlifts- 10 singles (practicing form) then 3 x 6 @ 50kg
Incline bench press- 6,6,5 @ 30kg
45 degree Single Leg Press- 3 x 6 (on each leg) @ 60kg
Standing Scoop Fly- 3 x 10 @ 3.75
Standing Reverse Fly- 10,10,8 @ 1.25++
Wrist Curls- 4, 3 @ 1.25
Back Extension- 12,10 (Holding 10kg plate)
Wood Chop high to low- 2 x 12 @ 6
Tabata Intervals on incline treadmill- Could only get half way through. Need to bring my inhaler to the gym from now on. Cardio fitness is shocking!!!

Glute exercises on all fours- out to the side, then up to the back keeping a bend in your leg.
Lifting your foot with glutes whilst legs are at a 45 degree angle.
Clam pilates exercise.
Planks 3 x max hold

Deadlifts feel weird. I'm scared of them, scared of hurting myself. My shoulders will not do as they are told (keep coming forward on the way down). I was concentrating too hard on it in one set that I bashed my knees :roll: Got the guy next to me to watch my form and asked the gym instructor to look and give me some pointers but the only thing they said was keep the bar closer to my shins and look higher... maybe I just need to get used to them *crosses fingers*
Incline bench press is great, feels much safer without a spotter cause I can actually reach the top properly. Feels strong, think I can go up next session.
Single Leg Press was better today, less slipping today. Feels strong, will go up next time.

Walk 1 hr

-Nutrition-
Banana
Chai Tea
1/2 Head of Broccoli with Creamy Cashew & Nutritional Yeast Sauce
Carrot Salad with pine nuts, oil, parsley
Huge bowl of red cabbage in tomato & herb sauce
Mixed Salad

Deadlifts are going to feel a bit weird at first but stick with them, practice makes perfect.

How do you make avocado ice cream?

Thanks, I'm not giving up, don't worry! :wink:

Its nice and easy- for one serve just mix 1/4 avocado, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, sweetener to taste, a little oil or 1 tbsp nut butter and 2 drips of vanilla extract and any other flavourings you think will taste good (orange rind is good) then stick it in the freezer. It's the consistency of mousse when refrigerated and of dense ice cream when frozen. It can be as rich as you want to make it but I make strong so a small scoop will cure any choccy craving! But if you make more than one serve at a time you'll need to leave it out for a little bit before it'll be soft enough to scoop! Enjoy!

Deadlifts felt much better today. I stopped stressing so much about hurting myself and relaxed into the lift. I can feel my entire back working but not so much my legs, is that normal? should I be bending them earlier?
Increased the incline bench, feels better now, nice and hard.
Increased leg press but I can go heavier next time.
