I thought it would be fun to show you a typical day in my life these days – as I am 12 and a half week out from my bikini competition!
I will be getting new plans from my coach any day now so I´m guessing the food will be stricter and my cardio will be upped soon. Now I´m doing 40 minutes of cardio 3-4 days a week...I wouldn´t be suprised if he puts me down for 60 minutes 5 days a week! My body has not been responding at all the past few weeks. I´ve been on vacation but never stayed off track for more than 2 days and none of those days was I totally careless about my diet and/or training! So I´m kind of dissapointed...I feel like I should have gotten more progress by now, but I guess my body only responds to ALL OR NOTHING!!! So for the next 12 weeks it´s gonna be just that! I´ve already ordered my bikini and I´ve told myself a million times that I´m not getting on that stage if I´m not at peace with how I look, so I´m gonna have to work, a lot! But I´m ready for it! I think my life is gonna be something like this for the next 3 months:
Woke up at 06:30 for fasted cardio. Went to Sporthúsið Gym at 06:50. Did 40 minutes cardio, drank 1 scoop of Amino Energy (green apple), listened to pop music and burned off about 370 kcal. Such a good way to start the day!
|Done with cardio :)|
Then I got home; showered, woke up my daughter Elín for her confirmation seminar, dressed and got ready for work, ate breakfast, took my vitamins and collected my meals for today in my „work“ bag.

|Ready to go!|
|Love vitamin tablets - this is calcium and vitamin D|
Worked from 08:30-4:30, I work in an office so I just sit in front of the computer all day long! Elín came to my workplace after her seminar finished at lunch and we went to a book store to buy a book she needs at the seminar, then I took her home and went back to work. We take „coffee“ breaks at work around 10 o´clock and again at 3 o´clock, and lunch somewhere between 12 and 1 J so I have enough time to get all my meals in, and don´t have to eat in front of the computer!
|Morning snack - pecan nuts and an apple|
|This is what my work looks like :)|
|Lunch! Chicken breast, sweet potatoes and a salad|
After work I drank 1 scoop of Amino energy and headed to Reebok Fitness where I do my weight lifting (I use different gyms for cardio and weight lifting). I was there about 5 o´clock and today on my plans was Back, shoulders and chest plus 15 minutes of cardio afterwards. It took me about 1,5 hours to finish. I drank 1 scoop of 100% whey protein shake in the car on my way home.
I got home around 7 o´clock and started by putting away my
tupperware boxes from work and the things in my gym bag. I cleaned the „dishes“
(aka boxes), put clothes in the washing machine and put away the clothes I
cleaned last night. Then I ran myself a hot bath! After the bath I had a late dinner, and it was the exact same thing I had for lunch! I drank half a
liter of lemon water with the dinner. This was about 8 o´clock.

At 10 o´clock I had a few slices of watermelon. Between that time me and Elín watched some TV, did a little bit of cleaning and started to change up our living room. We´ve been living in the same apartment without changes for 4 years now and are in desperate need of change. I will show you before and after photos soon J
Good night y´all!
