I think it was over all good first week back into the swing of things (not excellent just good). My last exam was on Wednesday which threw my gym plan of a little as I wasn’t able to work out on Tuesday or Wednesday because I was busy cramming for my evening exam. I ended up doing 3 days of phase 1 as I didn’t want to hinder my brain function for the exam by depriving myself of carbs. Thursday Friday ended up being phase 2 so unfortunately I sacrificed one of my precious phase 3 days :(, not impressed.
So here’s how I worked out:
Monday: 30 minutes of treadmill interval training, check!
Thursday: Legs Day, Check!
Friday: Arms Day, Check!
I tried to go to the gym on the weekend but it didn’t end up happening which was a little disappointing but this week there will be no excuses. 3 out of 5 in week 1 is not the start I wanted, but week 2 WILL be better. I will be doing the third weights session today (Monday) to make up for it, I really want to make sure I get my squat reps day. 3 cheers for twice a day Monday’s… My body is going to be in hell by Wednesday.
Here are my results for week one:
Weight 68.4 kg, that’s 0.4 kg’s down from Monday last week. Not bad for week one considering I only got to the gym 3 times and had an extra day of phase 1.
I didn’t do measurements on Monday last week so this week will be the bench mark for this challenge, although as punishment/motivation I am comparing them to my last weigh in when I hit my goal weight back in July:
Weight: 68.4kg (-0.4 this week, +3.6 from July)
Right Leg: 62cm (+4 from July)
Left Leg: 61.5cm (+4.5cm form July)
Hips: 91cm (+4 from July)
Waist: 73.5cm (+6cm from July)
Right Arm: 28.5cm (+1.5cm from July)
Left Arm: 29cm (+2cm from July)
Note to self: no more sugar bingeing! It wasn’t really worth it was it.
