But today...I started the 8 week challenge at our gym. 8 weeks of gut busting, supplements ( a new lean chicken and salads- Im sorry I love my steak!! So at this stage I plan to cut night carbs, Increase my protein and introduce some supplements into my day as well. The workouts will step up a notch too.
I'm starting this at 85.5kg and looking to lose at least 10-15kg out of this process. It will be full on and intense. But I want to make it worthwhile. It is ONLY 8 weeks. I want to challenge myself and be fitter at the end of this. Im VERY Excited about it!!
Tomorrow is my first ever "Bootcamp". Im not afraid to admit...Im terrified. Eeeep. Another new thing for me. But Im gonna give it all I got. So Im sure the following weeks will be full of exciting updates and info. will try to get some new Pictures up too. i WILL get here more often...I know i have dropped the ball. But hey..Im here now. ;)
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger...Right?!

Later in the week I was feeling pretty run down. I had two long shifts (one late night) this week back to back and on top of working out and home commitments I was feeling a bit burnt out. But I rested up Friday night. Pumped an extra dose of Vit b6 sups on Saturday. And I was good as gold.
been working hard at getting in my net calories too. Some days ahve been harder then others. i struggle to cover what Im burning off.
But Now Onto the Challenge!
WEEK SIX CHALLENGES:
Focus on your excuses again. Write them down and defeat them.
-Work: Been working out BEFORE. And If not before. Getting it in at night. :)
Commit to exercising all seven days even if it's just active recovery.
Get outside the box. One day, do an exercise routine you've NEVER done. Go to Zumba, try a swim class, go rollerblading. It doesn't matter what it is, but give it your all and push hard.
|Surprise Circuit we walked into!|
Intermediate-Advanced: Do your scheduled routine but add a workout from your partner.
- Regular workout CHECK! Late Night extra Run CHECK! Workout from Buddy...Um. No. But we did convince each other to NOT chicken out of the Circuit class. So that Counts ...right?
Message your partner telling them to give you an assignment.
Stay connected with your partner.
- Melissa And I check in with each other daily ( living together it is rather handy!) But we always make sure that we are not over doing it and Push each other when we need it. :)
Send the Men in Black to my apartment to zap out the Super Bowl. Do not want to remember.
|"It was a bad bad dream, Superbowl hasn't been played. In fact the game was cancelled. Due to a Pocket of Swamp gas exploding and knocking out the Satellites."|
Push hard, guys. We have to stick with it even when it's getting monotonous.
|After the Class On Thursday.|
Work Out breakdown for this week!:
Push Ups- No idea how many. Just kept going till I couldn't do any more.
Till next week Do lifers!
