Day 3: That was hard (Natalie)

Woah! Today's workout was seriously hard. There were times when I didn't think I would make it through, but I pushed and did it. Yay! The double high knees pushed me ridiculously hard. I had to break a few times to catch my breath, but got straight back into it. I kept shouting "I can do this" and it got me through. My DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) pain in my legs and butt has actually affected the way I've been walking, so when it came to the workout I didn't even know if I would be able to get down to the floor! But I pushed myself and feel great for it now. Day 3 will push you, but it will be worth it. 12 minutes is all it takes, that's all. Find the time. high-knees-female_-_step_1_max__v1 I've eaten really well today: Breakfast: Porridge Lunch: Soup Snack: Green vitality smoothie (from the Nutrition guide) Dinner: Steak, kale and rosemary sweet potato chips (from the Nutrition guide) with a corn on the cob added I absolutely love steak and sweet potatoes, so was looking forward to making this meal, but I'd never tried kale before so was a bit anxious about that. I had no reason to be though, it was amazing! The way that the recipe in the guide tells you to cook the kale makes it taste delicious! I can't wait to add it to more meals. I added a corn on the cob to my dinner as I was (for some unknown reason) craving it. I just boiled it, no added butter etc, so I'm really proud of how I've eaten today. I feel good for it too. photo 3 (3) I'm starting to see small changes in my stomach already. I will post a selfie soon to see if any of you guys can notice a difference from my 'before' photos. This challenge is definitely harder than I thought it would be. The workouts may only be 12 minutes long, but they are kicking my butt. If you are struggling just remember that if it hurts it means it's working. keep-going-1024x751 You WILL see improvements.   30 day challenge
