Officially three days in to the program and … 1.5kg down. First weigh in today, and I sucked it up and took the ‘before’ photos.
As I was a little late to the party and missed out on the pre-program, I have been working on my pre-season tasks. Glad to say that I am done, and ready to dedicate all my focus to the nutrition and exercise plans. First weigh in today, and I sucked it up and took the ‘before’ photos. Yesterday I did the fitness test and measurements – I have to say I was surprised at my results, I thought I would do better. I was pretty sore from Samba the night before, so the wall sit was agony, but I pushed through the 2 min mark. The run was the hardest; if it wasn’t for the run I would have made it into the advanced, but hey, better to be honest.
Other thoughts >>- I love that the program works around the exercise I already have locked in. e.g. Zumba and Samba are my two cardio days, bikram is my core day – So I just need to do the two toning days and figure out my super Saturday sessions. I have no access to the gym, so I love that she offers at home vids, and outdoor sessions.
- I have not made many recipes yet, but looking at them – YUM. I will be altering them to gluten-free, and I have still been fitting in my green monster smoothies, which kinda works as a snack under the program.
- Today was a hard day craving-wise, I think I probably was over my calories, but, I said no to sugar… opting for healthier options.
- Surprisingly I am only burning 380 calories at Samba and 440 calories at Zumba. There is a fair amount of core work at Samba, which I guess explains for the lower burn. I am not sure what to do to hit the 500 calorie burn for those days though. Maybe a walk would suffice?
Noting that it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I have yet to figure out how to eat out on the program. Obviously I will make sensible choices where I can, but I think I will have to work extra hard to compensate.
On that note for tomorrow – Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy National Condom Day!!
