Week Two

Weigh in day after week two - 80.3 kg
Lost 1.2 kg or 2.65 pounds.
Woohoo, I am so ecstatic about this loss. I so hope to be under 80 kg by next week. I am currently only 4.3 kg off pre-pregnancy weight of 76 kg. I think I will try and make this my goal for the challenge. I'm sure if I up my exercise a little and cut out the drinking I will be able to achieve this. :=)

Ok, took a sneak peak but am confused??

So i kinda hopped on the scales this morning three days before weigh in. I was worried that I might have done some damage after having a couple of drinks for three nights straight, but no I had a a huge surprise. How is it possible I thought. All i can put it down to is the extra exercise I have aded into my routine for the last two weeks. So I did a little happy dance and sent my ass off to body balance. What a shock that was. I was expecting a cruisey class with stretching and meditation but NO I was sweating within 10 minutes and holding poses I never thought possible. Ouch. I can't wait to do it again!!!
I am amazed at what a difference a little bit of excercise can do. Not only do I feel stronger and healthier but i feel better within myself also.
Bring on the next four weeks I say. Not sure if I will be able to catch up to grace but I will sure as heck give it a try :)

I'm sure it is killing me!

The gym that is!
I started back at the gym on monday and have since done 2 pump classes, a body attack class and 45 minutes on the cardio machines. Not bad for 4 days.
I am really feeling it. I was struggling to walk the day after my first pump class but pushed through the pain, and am glad I did.
I am taking today off though cause I think I went a little hard yesterday in my attack class and now my ankle and heel are playing up. Will be back in the morning for another pump class (I love those).

And onto band related news, I am sure I am a little too tight. I have been PBing heaps but am managing to keep fluids down with no trouble. We are heading to Brisbane early December for a night or two and I'm thinking I might go in for the smallest unfill. There is a doc here in Mt Isa that does it but I'm just not sure if I trust him. I think I can battle through another couple of weeks.

I'm still enjoying the Holiday Challenge and have not cheated once. Yay! this would have to be a first for me. I'm looking forward to tonight though when I have allocated my self a glass of wine with dinner. :)

First Day of Challenge

I am super excited and motivated by this new 6 week challenge that starts today. We are still in the process of unpacking everything so I have yet to find my measuring tape to do my inches, but I did find my scales.
My stats are:
7 November : 82.2 kg or 181.22 pounds. BMI: 29.5

I joined the local gym here on Thursday. They have a great price for what you get and they have a kids club for a few hours each weekday morning, which I am totally going to utilise. I'm looking forward to doing some of the classes like Body Pump and Body Combat.

I'm joining a challenge that is being hosted over at Kristen's blog. I think it will be great to get into this leading into the new year and now that I am in Mount Isa. My place will be all set up by the start date of 7th Nov so I should be all steam ahead.
