30 day challenge

I'm taking up a challenge with my friend Roxie (will figure out how to link her blog - i've forgotten how - d'uh) when she blogged that she was doing a 30 day challenge and of course, just had to join her (can't pass up a challenge).
So here's the deal. You have to set your eating goals and exercise schedules up and for the month of April you can't deviate at all. Not sure yet on the point penalty system yet, Roxie will have that on her blog. She has done the same, as you will see on her blog. So, this is my plan.
Meal 1 30g oats, 75g blueberries, 4 eggwhite and tomato omlette, 100ml fat free yoghurt mixed with 25g protein powder
Meal 2 50g protein, 1 cup fibrous veg or salad
Meal 3 100g protein, 1 cup fibrous veg or salad
Meal 4 50g protein, 1 cup fibrous veg or salad
Meal 5 100g protein, 1 cup fibrous veg or salad
Post Workout Meal chocolate protein pancakes (1 serv choc protein powder, 1 egg white, 50g fat free cottage cheese dash of water - blitz and cook in non stick frypan
Throw in an apple and if hungry 13 raw almonds.
Healthy fats - olive or flaxseed oil in salad dressing with balsamic vinegar
Supplements: 6 fish oil caps, 2 multi vitamins, 1 CoQ10
3 litres of water
Green tea during day with spoon of benefibre
Will work out calories and macros in post tomorrow.
Monday Wednesday and Friday: pump class at gym
Tuesday: upper body and 45 mins cardio
Thursday: lower body and 45 mins cardio
Saturday and Sunday: off
So thats the basics, we will both detail daily whats been happening. We have pledged to be honest and really, if one of us cheats, we are only cheating ourselves.
Wish me luck - next week we have 2 weeks school hols, easter, and ANZAC day - oh good grief - why did Roxie pick April (she must have known!!!)
Cheers and clean eating everyone!


  1. Best of luck to you both. You certainly do have a challenge ahead :-).

  2. WOW - that looks hard core!! The 45 minutes of cardio after a weight training session would be where I'd run away...LOL! There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of carbs in your menu. Don't you need carbs to fuel those long workouts?? You will probably shed some stubborn fat after this month! Good luck to you and your friend. Can't wait to hear how it goes!!

  3. I'm watching you!!!!

    You know I picked April on purpose right? I knew you were going to be super busy with the kids home and then I would win!!! I'm evil like that. Bwahahaha.

    See ya tomorrow!
