Last week I stepped onto the scales for the first time in over a month, and I was shocked by the digits staring back at me: 86.9 KGs! This has got to be the heaviest I have weighed, ever! Normally, I’d be absolutely ashamed of sharing this figure with all my readers, but I figure that it’s time for me to admit that my weight has gotten out of hand. I have to admit this, not just to me, but to others. I’m not ashamed of my weight. I myself am responsible for it, but it is not a healthy weight for my age and height.
So after weeks of random, non-consistent gym visits, I have decided that it is time to revive the initial concept of my blog:
To keep a record of my fitness journey, and get on track with a healthier lifestyle.
In keeping with this concept revival, I am sharing some statistics, stemming of my most recent boditrax scan (taken on Tuesday this week). This will be a way of keeping a record of my progress. I will post updates once a month to remain accountable.
To track progress, I will be looking at three main metrics, weight, body fat percentage, and my metabolic age:
As you can see from the above, my current statistics are not great. My weight and body fat percentage have gone up since I last checked, and my metabolic age (whilst not correctly displayed here) has gone up as well. These stastics are the starting measurements of the long journey that lays ahead of me. But I can do it, and I will do it.
My Workout Program
- Kayla Itsines’s BBG guides: 3 times a week
- LISS or HIIT: 2 times a week
- Rest day: 2 times a week
I’ve started with Kayla Itsines’s BBG guide (abs & arms) on Tuesday this week, and went for a short, did a LISS session on Wednesday, and a 20 minute HIIT session yesterday (Thursday). This leaves me with 2 more BBG guide workouts and 2 rest days.
As always, thank you for reading Coffee Guaranteed. x
