Slow & steady wins the race.

Apologies, this post was meant to go out yesterday but my not so super computer was playing up.

So it is officially the last day of the first week of a new year – 2015! I am still 3 pound heavier (the same weight I mentioned on new years day) but I intend for tat to be gone by hopefully next week. I had a moment of reflection this morning comparing my weigh in notes from the start to the present day.

I have lost just over 11KG in weight.

My BMI has dropped by 5.1.

My body fat percentage has dropped by 10.6%.

In the last 3 months (as I cant find my measurements from the very beginning) my hips have decreased by 4 inches, my waist by 3.5 inches, the largest part of my tummy by 5.5 inches and my thighs by approx. 3 inches each.

As much as I would love the weight to be dropping off and I see results immediately, I have re educated myself as I know if this happens you can put it all back on just as quick. It’s a marathon not a sprint.

Also you will be pleased to know one of my new years resolutions was to try something new… last night I did just that. I went to a military fitness boot camp. I was super nervous but I went, I participated and I waddled home covered in mud from head to toe. I am not going to spout that I loved every second of it because I didn’t, it was tolerable. They made me run which is my worst nightmare but I did it and I will go again next week and the week after before I decide if I hate it or not because I have learnt that you need to give things a proper chance before throwing in the towel.

Happy new year followers, I hope your first week of 2015 has been a successful one!

  1. awesome stats πŸ˜€

    also really well done for trying a new thing! I guess that explains the cat perturbing muddy shoes!!
    I really will have to find you a prize now!

    I also will really have to try spinning :-S

    • As I was writing this I was wondering if you had tried spinning yet!
      Yes that explains the look of disgust from my little furry son, it genuinely looked like if he could talk he would be saying ‘get these disgusting trainers out of my kitchen now, look at you you’re a disgrace’ haha
      ooo a prize I’m excited πŸ˜€

  2. Congrats on your successes! The boot camp sounds like fun to me. I love to run, but old injuries make it tough for me to do more than a mile at a time before new damage sets in. I’ll bet you felt very proud of yourself after completing your workout! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, a mile run… to me that’s hard-core and impossible I wouldn’t even run 200 yards for a bus so to get me running in that field last night was a major success and I still live to tell the tale! Thanks for the comment πŸ™‚
