The Day Before My New Fitness Programme

I’m nervous… excited too but more nervous than excited.  It’s the day before my personal fitness schedule : Goya90 Days Fat to Fit

The challenge is a daunting one.  It isn’t so much the workouts itself, but the anticipation of a mental battle to keeping motivated throughout these 90 days.

I’m sure I shouldn’t be beating myself with self-doubt and that I should trust my body to get into the new routines comfortably… eventually. 

These few days leading up to it, I’ve also been doing some rounds and testing of the new workout routines to prepare for it.  So far so good as long as I don’t push myself too hard right out from the start.  This will be something that I will have to work in comfortably.

Just now also I did some measurements. These I will be also doing weekly to track my progress. Things such as weight and size as well as basic calculations of Body Fat % as well as BMI.

I shall spare the rest of the info, but I will be starting this programme, weighing in at 113kg… (sad, huh… this is how much I have let myself to put on till now.. 🙁 …)

I have a complete Excel sheet just for keeping records of my progress.

Ok, keeping my fingers crossed.  It’s 11pm and I’m getting to bed for my first HIIT workout training tomorrow.

GOOD NIGHT! 🙂

Progress of my new fitness efforts

Hmm… it took me a while to think about how to write this title…. and it still sounds cliched!  Gosh…

  • Weight Loss Progress
  • Excitement @ My New Fitness Efforts
  • 1kg a week weight loss progress!
  • Latest update on my fitness progress!

Yup, cliched forever! lol…

Anyway, this’ll be a short report about how I am doing since I started this round of new efforts from 1st Oct : The Line… Crossed!

I started this whole thing with the goal of hitting a 1kg weight loss per week.  (FYI, in between more comprehensive health check-ups and fitness tests, I’m using my weight as a gauge of how I am progressing)

And guess what?!

I’ve been hitting my targets so far!!! HAPPINESS! What a motivation.

When I started this on 1 Oct.. I was at an embarrassing 110kg. Yes, I was back to that much… not as bad as my worst but bad enough to scare me into doing something. 

As of today, 24th Oct, I’m at 107kg! Almost a 1kg weight loss per week!!!

I’ve been doing a lot of activities and for the most part of it, I’ve been watching my food intake very closely thanks to an application called My Fitness Pal on my smartphone.  Diligently inputting your daily consumption and exercise meant that I was always reminding myself about keeping to my goals.

This is what I have on my mirror which reminds me daily to keep to my goals.  I’m targeting to maintain this progress until mid February for this round where I would be targetting to achieve a total of 20kg weight loss.  well, I gotta keep myself motivated and keep the activities coming!  If you read this, do drop me a message once in a while to remind me to keep at it. Winking smile

Enough is enough!

Doesn’t it fear you when you see something spiralling out of your control and will end up being very, very bad if you don’t do something about it?!  Goodness… frustrations and woes.  Yup, my fitness isn’t looking too good and the digital number on my digital scale finds it a real laugh when I stand on top of it everyday changing my expressions from looks of surprise, to shock to HORRORS!

Damn it… for a guy to be worried about weight gain, that’s pathetic isn’t it?!

But, then again, although weight is at the top of my list to physically change, it should really be on the last of the list of what I should be concerned about.  Yeah, without dwelling in the dumps on the thoughts of weight gaining, I realise the best is to focus on being able to do more, get fitter and eventually stand in front of the mirror in full nudity. looking and feeling GREAT!

So, I say here and now, enough is enough!  I know I’ve done this before and I was so happy then, I’m getting happy back and this time, I’ll keep it in my back pocket and maybe on my face where I’ll willingly smile like a fool and frown like a fat idiot…

Enough is enough!!!

but it motivated me the last round, it should do again for this round.
