Day One.

Well its day one of body rev, and so far I am going okay. Not sure how much more food I can stuff in my mouth, so I'm going to question that - but I managed an attack class (mostly low impact) and then came outside to find beautiful rain. There's nothing like jumping on your bike when your seat is wet.

I find I am really naughty in that when I get home I muck round for ages before eating dinner, jumping in the shower, going to bed, etc. So this week I'm going to make a determined effort to leave the damn computer alone - to start my dinner, jump in the shower, turn my dinner over, get dressed, eat my dinner, do the dishes, and then relax.

I'm sitting here in a t-shirt freezin my ass off - which is just stupid. It's no wonder this damn cold won't piss off.

Goal Revisited.

Oh yea, I do have a goal in my head that I want to reach. It's 'under the hundy'. (thats kilos, not pounds). But once I get there, I'm not sure what comes next. I was hoping to hit it before my birthday - but with only eight weeks to go, I'm not sure its healthy-achievable. So I'm breaking it into little steps.

Be prepared.

So tomorrow I start my first day on Body Revolution. I went shopping yesterday and bought a gazillion veges and fruit, and tonight before I go to sleep, I'm going to pack all my snacks and stuff to be ready for work. I think this is all about being prepared. About taking enough food so that I don't slip up and eat chocolate, or chips or whatever. I mean I still can have that stuff, just not every day.

So here goes. :)

How much?

Today I was asked by a lady (who has noticed my weight loss with interest) how much I wanted to lose.

I thought about it for a while - and I actually don't know.

For some reason the numbers don't really matter - as long as my clothes fit right, and I'm healthy then I don't mind. Plus, if muscle weighs more, then surely the weight thing isn't that important?

I need to think about this. My thinking is shifting. I'm kind of scared. Well, okay not really.

Final Results

Here they are -
7.1 kilos (or 15 and a bit pounds for my american friends)
Total cms : 42 (or 16.5 inches)
13 off my chest
18 off my waist
4 off my hips
4 off my thigs
.5 off my calf
3 off my biceps

I'm pretty happy with that. Wrote my story, got my after photos done, everything is in - roll on the prizegiving.

I've also decided to do Body Revolution. This is kind of like the challenge again, but in involves dedicated eating and menu plans - and seeing is where this is where I tend to crash and burn, I'm looking forward to it.

I'm meeting my trainer on Monday to go through it all. Should be cool. So don't stop reading because I still need your support.

Also if someone can help me figure out how to put links on the site that would be awesome.

So its week 12 and I wrote a big post about it last night, but bloody blogger ate it and as much as I hit the recover post button it would not come back.

Its the final week of the 12 week challenge. I'm meeting my trainer on Thursday morning for the final measurements, weigh in and body fat. Next week I have to get my 'after' picture taken, hand in my measurement and goal sheet, and write a story about me vs the challenge.

It's actually a lot harder than I thought it would be. The story part I mean. I didn't really struggle, but I have realised a few things about myself. Once its handed in and the judging and winners have been released I'll post it here.

By the way - don't think that with this week being the end of the challenge that I'll be stopping. I've only just started :)

I hit the gym this morning. Its the first time in a fair few Sundays that I've actually come - but I did a lot better than my Wednesday attempt, so I must be over the virus by now. (PLEASE!)

I also weighed myself. Now I'm not sure if I should be going off the last couple of weigh ins, because I haven't been eating right and I still could be deyhdrated from being sick, but it seems that I am currently 600 grams underneath the goal I wanted to hit for Week 12 of the challenge.

I clocked my goal. Two weeks early. I'm really stoked, but also really nervous that prehaps I won't stay that low. So I decided to give myself a deal. And I'm posting it here, so I have to stick with it.

For the next two weeks (until the end of the challenge) I promise to:
1. Track everything that enters my mouth. (I just had the dirtiest thought then)
2. On the days I don't go to the gym, I need to use my pedometer and hit the 10K step mark.

If I am at goal at week 12 my original promise to myself was to buy myself a piece of bling.

If I am under my goal = by at least 500 grams = then I will give myself an extra reward, by purchasing something from my wishlist at Amazon.
