We’re about halfway through the challenge and I’ve adjusted well and I feel like I’m making steady progress. Before the challenge, my meals were a lot different. For breakfast, I used to have a bowl of Frosties and a glass of juice but now I just have an omelette and a Whey Better, oats and milkshake. I’ve kept my diet pretty consistent and based around chicken breast fillets and brown rice, with cans of tuna for a quick between meals snack. I’ve never really eaten almonds before taking part in this 12-week challenge. I’m on a student budget so cooking basic meals is the easiest way to go for me at the moment.

My exercise plan is based around weights, cardio and yoga. One of the most important for me in the weight sessions has been using correct form. I used to end up aching after gym sessions for a few days due to bad form but now I don’t hurt. I’m worried that I don’t always get a good continuous 8-hour sleep regularly because that’s when muscles repair themselves. Does that mean that I’m not making as much process as I could?
One thing I definitely want to do is carry on this diet and fitness plan even after the 12 weeks are finished as this is the best I have felt in a long time. It would be nice to see how much I could improve on my body in 6 months, 9 months and beyond. One thing I’m slightly worried about is stretch marks on my arms I seemed to have gained on my biceps. Is there anything I can use to reduce them?
