Five weeks seems like plenty of time but I’m down three weeks and it feels like it’s going as quick as Sally Pearson over hurdles. When you want time to slow down it seems to move faster and when you want it to speed up it drags on. Despite all that five weeks is just that, five weeks.
So I’ve lost a minute amount of weight, but I’ve been doing a lot more weigh resistant exercises. Remember muscle weighs more than fat. So perhaps I’m coming along okay thanks to Chelsea at Wise Force Gym, Burleigh. At only $10 a 1 hour class it’s terrific value and I’m seeing the improvement in muscle definition. I’d recommend ladies who live close by to give it a go. There’s a nice bunch of people to encourage you too.
I’ve been more conscious of my eating and have cut out any junk and added more protein and greens, plus trying to drink more water or coconut water (I love Cocobella).
My results so far:
- Feeling less bloated in the stomach
- Lost 2.4kg
- Feeling fitter
- Hitting the boxing pads harder
- Lifting heavier weights easier (though I don’t lift much over 18kg)
- Having fun with my fitness
And, the real test. Those white jeans that couldn’t get over my thighs are now up to my waist – but the zipper doesn’t do up. Oh well, two and a half weeks to go. We’ll see.
