Hey GI! So, I am totally excited but I am sooooooo scared at the same time!!
I spent half the night waking up to check that my alarm was working so I didn't sleep in and miss my consultation this morning... haha, so I'm totally tired right now.
Anyway, I got there at 530am (half hour early - keen much??
) and went in to meet the girls for the challenge. I basically had to do a couple of questionnaires on my goals, my current nutrition /health / fitness and stress. Then she took my hips/waist (just below my belly button) measurements (113cm), checked my height, did a pinch test on the back of my arm and the front of my thigh, weighed me (96.3kg
I blame her scales!!
) and then I had to do two fitness tests... 1) get down and do as many push ups as I could without pausing - got through 25 of them, and 2) hold the plank / bridge for as long as I could (44.3 seconds)
She then said that they will now go and put all my "data" into their computer program and on Monday morning when we all start - there is apparently 9 of us doing the challenge - we all find out our Bio Age together. I'm so scared I'm going to be 93 years old or something!! LOL, but it's really exciting to be able to find out, and then aim to improve it.
Throughout the challenge we will also be given nutritional advice and we also have to fill in a weekly food and exercise diary to keep us accountable.
I AM SOOOO PUMPED!!!!
Bootcamp starts again tomorrow morning, and I am really looking forward to that too!! So this is my new weekly routine as of Monday morning...
Monday mornings - 1 hr - Challenge
Monday nights - 1 hr - group boxing
Tuesday mornings - 1 hr Bootcamp
Tuesday nights - 1 hr boxercise
Wednesday mornings - 1 hr - Challenge
Wednesday nights (maybe) - X-Training
Thursday mornings - 1 hr - Bootcamp
Friday nights - 1/2 hr - PT session
Saturday mornings - 1 hr Challenge, then 1 hr Group Training, &/or water aerobics
Saturday arvos - truck washing - about 3 hours washing two gigantic trucks to save some more money for our wedding
Sunday - DAY OF REST & RELAXATION
I've just messaged my PT to see if I can still join the 12 week challenge at the gym which will add another 1 hour session to my week.
So - in my consultation this morning, I made my short-term goal to lose 10kg's by June, and 20kg's by September... (hopefully more, but 20 is still a fair whack!)
