Week 4 Day 4

Tonight I want to talk about trusting the process (as a reminder to myself and all of you). I have to admit today I've struggled mentally with the process and feeling like my choices aren't "healthy" enough blah blah blah and I would be lying if I said that the thought of dropping calories to give my mind a break didnt cross my mind - but we kept on trucking because nothing worth getting is easy 💪

Eating more and eating a little more processed in a world that is all about "diet culture" along with "good" and "bad" food makes going against the grain difficult at times and today was one of those days. 
But then I remembered all of the FACTS that have come from eating a lot more.. My weight (as of last weekends weigh in) is down from when I started 4 weeks ago DESPITE increases each week! 
My lifts have gone up from 4 weeks ago and I'm FEELING amazing! 
Food should just be food! Eat balanced (80% nutrient dense, 20% not so nutrient dense is how I like things), eat what you love and f*** what anyone else says (unless it's your Dr saying what you're doing is dangerous to your health of course) because this is YOUR journey. 
In life things change and nothing is permanent. If you find something isnt working for you, change it up! You're in the drivers seat 😊

WEEK 4: Day 4
Upper body workout done ✔️
Today I achieved 6 close grip pull ups unassisted. Week 1 I could only just make the 4th one. My goal for the end of the 12 weeks is to be able to do 8 reps unassisted - it’s definitely looking achievable 👏🏼
Felt super strong in my shoulder exercises today - increased weight again - so giving myself lots of oats on the back today 💪🏼🙌🏼👌🏼

WALKS WITH MY BABIES
👦🏼🐶🐶
When your toddler asks to take the puppies for a walk, you do it . . .
(Regardless of the fact that never before have you taken a 3 year old and your two crazy 7 month old puppies for a walk on your own)
A nice way to get out of the house on such a beautiful day 🙏🏼
Also a great way to get my steps up for the day #steplife

Week 4 Day 4

Happy Thursday everyone!

When you start your day with a plateful of hotcakes you know it's going to be a good day 😜 p.s if you want the recipe you can head to my recipe page @sophiewatsonfitnessfood and look for the picture (swipe to see the one you're looking for) 
Today had me thinking just how quickly your body can adapt! Which is a pretty freaking cool thing! 
From my restart submission weight to my weigh in last Saturday I'm 1kg down (though weight/fat loss wasnt the goal for me right now) eating a heck of a lot more than I was 4 weeks ago!

I've noticed changes in body composition and my strength has made massive gains! 
In 6 weeks (I'm onto week 7 of my training even though I'm participating in the restart, just doing my own programming for the most part) my working sets for deadlifts and hip thrust has gone up 30kg and front squats are close behind on about 22kg increase, bench increased by 12kg. 
I've been putting in so much hard work mentally and physically but seeing those lift numbers go up makes me even more determined and excited to keep pushing on

Week 4 Day 3

A friendly to reminder to you all that food and water takes up space and adds to the number on the scale (if you were to weigh yourself in the morning and then at night)

WEEK 4: Day 3
I told myself this morning, to only do today’s functional session if I really felt like it - to otherwise give myself today to rest and recover.
I had every intention of NOT doing it.
But I put Mr.Three down for his nap after the morning at gymnastics and felt the need to move my body.
Today’s session was the same session I did in week one of #thebodrestart.
It involves Handstands for 30 seconds, push ups, mountain climbers and bench hops.
The handstand hold is in between every other exercise and you continue repeating the circuit for 20minutes.
Since I can’t hold a handstand freestanding for 30 seconds, I decided to use the walk for one round of three holds, then the next round hold it freestanding for as long as I could and continue for the 30seconds.
When I held it on the wall I squeezed every muscle I could throughout the time. I found it really helped when it came time for my freestanding attempts - I was able to hold for a lot longer 👌🏼 I was also able to get through the entire 20 minutes doing the push ups on my toes, which I couldn’t do in Week 1.
So it was a very successful workout indeed.
Now for house work 🧹🧺 #thebod #thebodsquad

Perfect start to the day ☀️ 🐩 🥤

Perfect start to the day ☀️ 🐩 🥤

R E S T 😴
This morning was an unintentional rest morning. Usually on a Wednesday morning I walk, the Do my functional session at the gym.
When my alarm went off at 4am, I was exhausted still and since I didn’t rest yesterday morning (which I usually do) I told myself to stay put.
I may do the functional workout while Mr.Three takes his nap today, but I also may not. I’ll see how the day unfolds.
PLEASE NOTE: I’m wearing a midriff top and jumper today 😱👏🏼🙌🏼

Here’s one of my 70kg deadlift as I was getting ready to find my 1RM a few weeks ago. I’m really working on my initial set up for that first lift as right now it’s ok, but could be better that’s for sure 💪🏼 #deadlift #deadlifts #deadlifting #legday #huntingforabs

Happy Wednesday friends! 
Holy wow what a great workout! Not mindset wise but when I was done everything was already aching 🙈

Today was a prime example of discipline over motivation. 
Even though I felt how great of a workout it was the whole time I wanted to quit but I turned my music up a little louder played something angry and kept going 😂

WEEK 4: Day 2
I binged today. . .
But that’s over and now I’m walking home
(slowly, red faced and with jelly legs) from an awesome leg session that’s left me not only exhausted but proud and pumped and feeling strong.
This feeling I’ll hang onto.

On another note. . .
How annoying is it when you set up for your last set of heavy squats and an ad comes on Spotify 🤦🏼‍♀️

Today was just so nice to move. So much has been happening, and life just doesn’t slow down for anyone!

I’m practicing being appreciative for my amazing husband, my incredible children, and all of the things that make up our beautiful lives. #grateful #blessed

So today was just perfect - moderate weight, reps, and a beautifully orchestrated session. Feeling good!

Here’s my last set of sumo deadlifts at a weight I once dreamed of as my 1rm - today my poor thumbs were throbbing by rep 8. And some nice low bar back squats for reps of 8. Also did a bunch of other stuff but it takes time to fluff around and record 😅

It took me 4 weeks of constantly resetting, telling myself I was starting again, picking up and trying to get back into it before it finally stuck. Yes it would have been great if the first time it worked, but it didn’t, however, it work the 25th time and that’s what counts. If I had given up after that first reset I’d be in a much worse position than I am right now, but I didn’t, I kept pushing forward, I kept resetting and starting over and now I’ve got 2 weeks under my belt and I’m in a place I never thought I’d be again ❤️ @thefemalehustlers

Week 4 Day 2

Happy Tuesday friends! 
The past couple of days with not reaching my new calorie goal (of a 200 calorie increase) not going to lie I was feeling like a "failed". But then quickly put it all into perspective with three main points... - This is me listening to my body and my hunger/fullness cues. - Your body can only put on about 125g of muscle per week so with that in mind 100 cal per week is probably more accurate for my goals anyway so I should keep aiming for that since it's more realistic and what I want. - I've seen so much positive change mentally and physically so I should celebrate that!

“IT’S JUST A BAD DAY. . .
- NOT A BAD LIFE”
And that’s about all the positivity I’ve got this morning.
I’ve been for my morning walk, so that’s a positive. But for the first time in. . . I don’t even no if there was a before - I wish I hadn’t of bothered.
No matter how tired I am, how much I want to stay in bed, I ALWAYS feel incredible after my morning walks.
This morning, not so much.
I felt shitty while walking and I still feel shitty now.
I don’t know if the cold I thought I had on Saturday (that seemed to disappear after half a day) is still actually here, or if I’m just really physically exhausted but right now, I feel like crap❗️❗️

Chocolate peanut butter overnight oats. Yum. 
Have been super slack with posting and if I'm honest, thebod in general. 
Exercise is great. Food is average. Not eating badly, just finding macros tricky due to life, my partner's diet (big appetite). Will post measurements and weight tomorrow.

Week 4 Day 1

Egg appreciation! 
This may seem like an odd post but I've been LOVING eggs the past few months and I can't believe I haven't done a post on them before 🙈 
I posted a super quick light lunch/dinner yesterday on my story which took 5 minutes to make packed with all the healthy stuff and a balanced meal with protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats and micronutrients! • 3 whole eggs - scrambled with black pepper • Frozen spinach - thawed • Grated cheese
• Bread - Toasted

Swipe to see the benefits of whole eggs (vitamin/mineral benefits)

I am STRONG NOT SKINNY 💪
•
We get criticized when we're overweight and we get criticized when we are underweight. Just as it isn't acceptable to call someone fat it also isn't acceptable to call someone skinny. I have never been more healthy, fit and strong in my life and I am NOT DEFINED by my weight or how lean I look.

LUNCH TIME GOODNESS 😋
For the last three weeks of the Bod Restart, I’ve had exactly the same lunch every day of every week, it’s served me well and I’m not one for variety with my food. 
For this week I decided to change it up a bit and have sweet potato shepherds pie from #thebodapp.
Oh My Goodness. . .
I’m so glad I tried it.
It is so yum and satisfying in every way. I was a little worried it wouldn’t fill me enough but it definitely did - and I was absolutely ravenous when I finally sat down to eat it. Bring on tomorrow, when I get to eat it again 😂

With all my details entered and my profile all set up, thebodAPP has unsurprisingly put me at level 1. Being honest my workout discipline has sucked and my mojo had still been in hiding...(possibly still trying to bribe it out🙈).

Week 4 Day 1

Happy Monday and welcome to a new week everyone! 
This week my goals are mainly mind focused because physically things are going fab! 
Another little update on the workout this morning (swipe to see workout stats) deadlift ended up going up 7.5kg from last week 😳💪 and front squat and bench went up another 1kg from what I had tested last week too 😉 🎉🎉🎉🎉 So my 12 week goal of increasing deadlift and front squat by 6kg (for working sets) has been well and truly smashed by week 4 😂 🎉🎉🎉🎉 ♡ This Weeks Goals ♡ • Be present in all aspects of my week • Take time to breathe - even if it's only for 5 minutes a day
• STUDY!! I've been lazy when it comes to teacher registration work (early childhood teaching) and extra personal training reading so even if I get an hour in this week of each it's an hour more than I've done in the past couple of months 😂

What are your goals for this week?

Another little update on the workout this morning (swipe to see workout stats) deadlift ended up going up 7.5kg from last week 😳💪 and front squat and bench went up another 1kg from what I had tested last week too 😉 🎉🎉🎉🎉 So my 12 week goal of increasing deadlift and front squat by 6kg (for working sets) has been well and truly smashed by week 4 😂 🎉🎉🎉🎉 ♡ This Weeks Goals ♡ • Be present in all aspects of my week • Take time to breathe - even if it's only for 5 minutes a day
• STUDY!! I've been lazy when it comes to teacher registration work (early childhood teaching) and extra personal training reading so even if I get an hour in this week of each it's an hour more than I've done in the past couple of months 😂

What are your goals for this week?

WEEK 4: Day 1
I was super keen to get started on a new week of lifting and also to get back into the gym this morning.
My mind was there but my body wasn’t. My body felt super fatigued, and on my walk I noticed no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t stick to the pace I usually do.
I just didn’t feel myself.
When I got to the gym I said to myself I had to wake my body up some how.
So. . .
I put on a video that always motivates me
(it’s actually a long Nike ad called ‘Rise and Shine’ - check it out on YouTube it’s awesome)
And did some handstand walking.
It’s fun, it’s challenging and it definitely wake my body up, my entire body.
Then I was ready to train 👌🏼
-
On another note; I think I’m going to have to increase my rest time.
The weight is getting heavier and 1 minute didn’t quite cut it on some of the exercise today.
Either that or my body wasn’t quite back to normal energy levels as I thought it was

Sweet Potato Beef Nachos
Oh My Goodness❗️❗️
This meal was sooooo yummy delicious.
I made it mainly for my husband who absolutely LOVES nachos. I’m not a big fan of nachos usually but I certainly am a big fan of this nachos.
Easy to make and jam packed full of flavour.
-
I am absolutely loving flexible dieting and getting rid of the thought that I need to restrict food to lose fat.
Never ever would I have attempted to fit something like this into my macros before.
But there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t eat this way and still reach your goals

What are your food obsessions? For me its DEFINITELY chocolate and almond butter and while there are days where I think 50 to 100g of dark chocolate and half a jar of almond butter is "too much" then I quickly put it back into perspective I need to get my calories up for my goals.. These both contain SO MANY health benefits! Sure maybe the quantity isnt what most could easily fit into their diets but for me and how things are with my calorie needs increasing (just to maintain weight still havent found the magic number yet) they are both easy and tasty ways to get calories in 😋

Natural almond butter (with only almonds and a bit of salt used) has SO many health benefits - being a monounsaturated fat powerhouse which also helps keep blood sugar stable, its packed with magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin B2 and is also a source of copper and manganese just to name a few. 
Dark chocolate (70% +) in 100g contains 11 grams of fiber, 67% of the RDI for iron, 58% of the RDI for magnesium, 89% of the RDI for copper, 98% of the RDI for manganese. It also has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium which is something that most people struggle to get in their diets.

• SUNDAY🧘‍♀️STRETCH •
Since I did the main part of my meal prep yesterday, and I have one more breakfast left, while Mr. Three sleeps there’s nothing I HAVE to get done. . .
I’m heading to the gym where there’s no distractions to do a big stretch session.
The weight in the workouts are increasing,
so I’m keen to do everything I can to make sure I don’t get injured.
Foam roller here I come 😫

HAPPY SUNDAY! 🥳 .
How did you all go this week? I would love to hear what week you are up to and how you’re finding your program so far.☺️
.
My week started out a little off track. I had full intentions of starting @thebod_ Gym Program until I got back from holiday and realised my gym membership had expired while I was away. So, I decided to swap to the home program and man oh man, I have enjoyed it so much! The workouts look easy enough, but I have woken up sore in all the right places the following day. 💪🏽
.
While I was away, I realised that we are nearly mid-year and I am still yet to finish a program from start to finish. So, it’s clear that if there’s one thing I’ve struggled with this year, it’s consistency with my training.
.
This really bothered me. I don’t want to be the person that says “I’m too busy to exercise”. As I know from past experience, completing a full round of ANY program, gives you a real sense of achievement. It isn’t just the physical and mental/emotional benefits you gain from the exercise itself, it’s the feeling of accomplishment you get when you realise you’ve had the DISCIPLINE and DEDICATION to prove to YOURSELF that you can fulfill the goals you set out to achieve.
.
I sat down and did a solid journal session. I asked myself the following questions:
.
• What will make me feel proud of myself?
• What is holding me back from achieving this?
• What do I need to do next?
• Where do I want to be in 3 months time?
.
Once I had answered these questions as honestly as I could, I was pretty clear about what I had to do next.
.
So here I am, 1 week down with 11 to go! If you haven’t yet worked out your own plan, please sit down and ask yourself the above questions. You may just surprise yourself with the answers you put down. 🧡

Some 60kg warm up deadlifts before going for my 1RM a few weeks ago with @probodyft ... since this day I have really got myself back on track both training and diet wise. I have dropped over 2kg, got myself back on track and feeling great for it. Can’t wait to kick start another great week and keep the results coming in 💪🏼 #deadlift #sumodeadlift #sundaysessions #gettingitdone #huntingforabs

Week 3 day 7

Numbers are done for next weeks workouts and wholley molley did they go up 😳 only 500g away from my goal of comfortably adding 6kg to my front squat and deadlift in the 12 weeks and we're only 3 weeks in! I definitely undersold myself 🙈 But we'll see how much we can add by the end of week 12 - to be honest would be awesome to get to (for working sets of 10) 90kg for deadlifts and 60kg for front squats 
Playing around with fonts so its going to look a little messy 😂 But think I've found one I like.

I cant believe we're 1/4 of the way through the challenge already! Cant wait to see everyone's progress pictures come in over this coming week! 
I hope everyone's ready to smash another week 😋

How is everyone spending their Sunday?

WEEK 3: Day 7
Ready to jump into Week 4 of #thebodrestart like . . .
I’ve had a look at the workouts for the week and I’m super excited.
Weights going up and reps going down 👌🏼👌🏼
Excited to push my limits and test my strength. I intend to test my chin ups and push ups (which I have set goals for) to see how close I am to achieving the goals I set and to see if I need to move the bar higher.

This is something I’m really learning this year. I used to think that you always had to give 110%, that everything had to be perfect and that any mistake, no matter how small, was a failure. All I did was run myself into the ground day after day for people who wouldn’t even take a step for me. I’ve learnt this year that it’s ok to say no, it’s ok to stay in on a Friday night and catch up on sleep or spend Sunday at home preparing for the week ahead. It’s ok to reach out for help, to take rest days, to eat the damn chocolate when you want it and I listen to yourself more than anyone else. Yes this year I’ve made many mistakes but I am more content today with my progress than I was all last year when I tried to do everything perfectly. I may not always be the best but I am sure as hell always my best and for me, right now, that is enough 💪🏼 @carolineohaganfitness

Week 3 day 6 
Weight down again this week so time for another increase 🍫 In the past 3 weeks we're up 400 calories a day 💪 I'm thinking if I drop again next week I'll start increasing by 200 calories rather then the 100 calories I've been doing the past few weeks. 
Usually I dont take a lot of stock in the scale but at the moment I know it's a tool I need to look at. For 2 reasons... So I know if I need to keep increasing but also because I know where my body doesn't like being weight wise. I know I'm a fair way away from being at that weight (meaning I would have to drop a fair bit further) but it's still important to watch how things are going in that respect.

Logically I'm thinking these weight drops are due to body recomposition with how much my strength has gone up + seeing more definition. But I also think that its important to monitor especially as this has been kind of an ongoing thing.

When this orginally started I got my blood work done so I know I'm not deficient in anything, dont have thyroid issues or diabetic (something that did cross my mind given weight loss despite increasing intake and family history of diabetes) or have any other issues with my liver/kidneys or other vital organs ect. 
So for now I'm just going to keep doing what im doing and eating all the food 😂💪 #fitness #health #girlboss #holisticliving #vegan #girlswholift #nutrition #mentalhealth #balancednotclean #onlinecoach #yoga #happy #bbg #thebodresults  #strongnotskinny #personaltrainer #healthyfood #nutritionist #weightlifting #gym #healthisnotasize #thebodresults #transformwithsophie #thebodsquad #thebodrestart

WEEK 3: Day 6
Is Cancelled❗️❗️
Im currently still in my pyjamas deciding whether to get ready and go for a walk or stay put.
The cold that I thought I’d avoided has overnight taken residence in my body.
I will not being doing the functional session that is set for the day and I turned my usual Saturday alarm off and stayed in bed.
I LOVE going for my walks so I may still go but other than that I’ll be resting in hope that this thing has well and truely left my body come Monday when it’s time to lift again.

"Expressing forgiveness is easy, forgetting takes time"

When I look at that little sentence I see so many different events in my life flash before my eyes... Some directed at myself (as in things that I've done) and things that I've experienced (things directed at me by other people)

Past experiences have a way of staying with you and shaping how you see the world, change the steps you were going to take, change how you saw your life being (really the list can go on forever). Forgiveness while it can be incredibly difficult and take a lot of time, moving on from those feelings or the event is an even greater challenge. 
Those past experiences can have a way of making you doubt your decisions or the people around you and can make you fearful of those situations happening again. 
While its difficult to wait, time definitely heals, gives you clarity, let's you make changes and eventually after what can feel like an age - move on. 
But you will move on.

One of the best ways I know how to be successful when it comes to moving my body daily, and fat loss is setting small goals that are my main focus on a daily basis. My Apple Watch has certainly helped me keep track of setting small goals and not focusing obsessively on a long term goal.
Move Goal : 1000 cals per day
Proud of my steps today, after a big walk this morning, walking around the zoo with Mr. Three and walking our puppies and my first fur baby (who’s now an old man)

Week 3 day 5 
Todays workout stats 💪

This weeks workouts were a little up and down when it came to my mindset but usually when that happens I know it's time to switch things up a bit. I usually keep the same "base" workout because I've made it so it targets all the major muscle groups with a lot of compound movements and I've seen SO much progress through doing it (hence why I keep going back to it). When it comes to changing things up I usually keep a lot of the same movement patterns - especially when it comes to the compounds, but change the weight/how I load the weight e.g good mornings instead of deadlifts (with a lot lighter weight) and dumbbell goblet squats (with lighter weight) instead of barbell front squats. Even having those little changes makes it feel like a completely new workout when you're still hitting the same muscle groups 😋

WEEK 3: Day 5
Today’s workout was Deadlifts.
Only Deadlifts.
It took me only 20 minutes to complete the sets and reps and I found it really hard to leave it there.
I felt the need to do more.
My mind was telling me I hadn’t done enough. Deadlifts alone weren’t enough of a workout.
I was ready to head to the weights machines and add in some additional exercises to make the workout. . .
“ENOUGH”❗️❗️
But I ignored that thought and told myself it was enough. There was a reason why the program was set that way and there is no time limit, no rule on how long you have to be in the gym or working out.
I trusted in the program and I trusted in @sophie_guidolin expertise and instead of doing more, I stretched.
I also reminded myself of the positives, I left that gym feeling strong, knowing I lifted well and I also took care of my body.

It took me only 20 minutes to complete the sets and reps and I found it really hard to leave it there.
I felt the need to do more.
My mind was telling me I hadn’t done enough. Deadlifts alone weren’t enough of a workout.
I was ready to head to the weights machines and add in some additional exercises to make the workout. . .
“ENOUGH”❗️❗️
But I ignored that thought and told myself it was enough. There was a reason why the program was set that way and there is no time limit, no rule on how long you have to be in the gym or working out.
I trusted in the program and I trusted in @sophie_guidolin expertise and instead of doing more, I stretched.
I also reminded myself of the positives, I left that gym feeling strong, knowing I lifted well and I also took care of my body.
