The 12th April is my one year anniversary since embarking on this journey. From today that's exactly four weeks. So I am embarking on a personal challenge, there are some things I want to attempt to achieve by then. I'll be realistic, but anything on top of that is gravy.... or some non food item hehehe.
So I'll ramp up my exercise, I did this just before Christmas, even though I gave myself the day off on Christmas Day I increased my exercise to help get me a step ahead. I only work that hard for short periods of time, because this is a lifestyle and both exercise and food have to be sustainable for the long term. Training too hard for too long can cause, burnout and injuries, so I focus on a short sustainable burst, after which I'll have a recovery period and then get back into a more regular training mode.
So my aim is to get as close to a 40 kg loss as possible currently I'm at 36.9 kg. Now 3.1 kg in four weeks is doable, but I'm also at a stage where anything could happen, I could plateau or my body could just refuse to co-operate or it could just slow right down. So I will have to see how it goes, I refuse to be hard on myself for simply trying.
My first pit stop is 37.5 kg's lost that will mean I have a BMI in the overweight range rather than the obese range. Seeing I started out in the morbidly obese category this will be quite a nice pit stop to make.
What comes on top of that will be a super bonus.
So be sure to check in and see how I am doing, I'll be reporting progress along the way.
