Faithful Finish lines week 2

Faithful-Finish-Lines-ShortI’ve been challenged by Sara to join Faithful Finish Lines for the next 7 weeks. Last week I wrote about my journey up to now.I’m not one for New Years Resolutions that is why I chose one word for the year: Grace and Faithful Finish Lines is all about that. Let me continue:

Second part of week 1:

I started a new job that I really enjoy. Since it’s still in the beginning stages I have a lot of energy. I walk on the treadmill for 15mins each day and do between 800m and 1km. That is a lot for me. From doing zero to 1km.

I’ve also seen that writing down what you eat helps a lot! Thanks for the tip.

Week 2

The challenge for week 2 was eat more fruit and vegetables.

prepped fruitThis isn’t hard for me as I LOOOVE fruit and veg. The challenge for me is that hubby loves protein-any form of it. He would leave veggies etc if he can have meat. A steak on his plate is enough to keep him satisfied. What I’ve learnt is that if I prep the fruit both of us eat more of it. I have containers with peeled fruit in the fridge so that you can just grab and go.

We also need to set a fitness goal for this month and Faithful Finish Lines has some great guidelines and tips for deciding what your goal would be.  They take you step by step and advise you. If you’re struggling with this as much as me I would really recommend that you sign up for the next challenge it is worth it!

Update on my progress:

I’m exercising more and I’ve lost 1kg.

I’m focusing on what I eat and eat less.


I’m planning  menu for February at the moment. Please share any tips and advice in the comments? Some great recipes?

  1. I love having food prepped & ready to eat in the fridge 🙂 Makes it so easy to grab & go! I’ve started prepping dinner ingredients this way, too. A whole pan of chicken, quinoa, sweet potatoes, etc. Dinnertime is a lot less stressful with so many healthy options already cooked & waiting! 🙂

  2. I am horrible at meal planning. But what we’ve done this week is buy only healthy options, so we don’t have a choice! We either eat these fruits and veggies or we go hungry. I have protein sources in the fridge too, as well as some healthy carbs… And I’m going to have these veggies prepped and ready to grab and eat.
