This blog has taken me a long time to write, I have had the words floating around in my head, and to be honest I wish I could just press print & they would flow easily.
I will keep it simple today though, I am working on a longer blog about why I started 12WBT in the first place but for now I am going to focus on what I have achieved over the past 8 weeks.
- I have lost 8.1kgs which is 9.9% of my body weight, bringing me down to 73.4kg this morning.
- My BMI has dropped from 27.6 to the current healthy 24.9.
- My boobs have reduced in size by 10cms, my waist reduced by 17cms & my hips by 7cms.
- I can now run 1km in 5mins 20seconds (a 1min 19sec improvement)
- I can do 47 push ups in 1 minute (including 10 on my toes) this is up from 27 push ups in week one & none on toes.
- I can now hold the dreaded wall sit for 3mins 19secs (improved from 2mins 6sec in week 1)
- I have reduced my consumption of alcohol and now only have 1-2 glasses of wine one day per week (down from a bottle a night!)
- I eat breakfast every day.
- I execise 5-7 days per week.
There is no doubt about it I have done really well, I am feeling good, I now see a skinny girl looking back at me in the mirror. However now is not the time to slacken off or get complacent.
The next 3 weeks are where the challenge really begins – I have 5.4kg to reach my goal weight of 68kgs, and 21 days to get there!
I have arranged for a friend to take my final photos, but because I have to go away with work on the 4th of December they are going to be taken earlier than I would like, so on the 2nd of December I will be stripping down to my new blue bikini & hopefully showing the world the physical transformation I have made.
I mentioned in the first part of this post that I am working on why I started 12WBT I am hoping that when I can finish that blog people will be able to see the mental transformation that I know I have made.
I hope that everyone is having a fantastic day, take a moment to reflect on what you have achieved to this point in the game – if you are not happy with that ask yourself what you can do to be happy in 3 weeks time, and then JDFI!
