Well I’ve been doing “Operation Body Shape” for a month now so it’s time to review how the month has been and see what progress I made towards my goal of changing my body shape.
So in January I achieved:
17 visits to the gym
2 rowing club sessions
3 hours of Just Dance
I’m really pleased with this level of activity; I guess going to the gym is easier for me than some of you because A: because I only have to worry about myself so can go as and when I choose and B: I have always been a bit of gym bunny so getting into the routine of it all again felt pretty familiar.
So having done all this activity, the question now is whether it has impacted on my body shape; well the simple answer is yes.
I weighed myself and was pleasantly surprised that I’d lost 7lb or ½ a stone which is great and I’m really happy with this but as I said in my first post, how much you weigh is totally irrelevant. I also did my measurements and I’ve actually lost 6.5 inches across the whole of my body, which I’m absolutely delighted about, because my main goal in this process is to change my body shape so losing size is more important to me.
Overall I’m really pleased with what I’ve achieved in January and hope that this success continues for the coming months. I’ve experienced highs and lows, which I expected, but knowing that I’ve made progress toward my end goal is very motivating indeed.
I am going to carry on what I’m doing in the gym, and increasing the intensity of my workouts to continue to push my body to change.
The food and eating bit has been the harder part to crack and I’m still working on improving this aspect, but do know that now I find it hard to eat a large meal and on occasions I’ve felt quite ill when I’ve eaten the amount that I would have eaten without thinking a few months ago.
