WORKING ON MY FITNESS: Before
The Above Measurements are from Feb 11. I started Washington Gym toward the end of November, right around the time for Thanksgiving. I wish I had photo's to show from then but we never got around to it. My posture was pitiful (Still working on that)! I was going to the gym 2-3 times a week, but I was also eating whatever I wanted and I was still drinking a lot (wine night every night). So when we took the above photo's after 3 months I was disappointed in myself because I knew I could of done a lot better. However, I was impressed with the results from the gym and the workouts, so I figured if I just ate right and drank less then I would be a lot happier with myself.
Hahn, one of the trainers at the gym came up with a BCI challenge. When I heard about it I was super excited and I knew this was just what I needed to get my butt in gear.
BCI challenge // 30 days of:
<> eating clean
<> 5 meals a day // every 3 hours // customized proportions
<> 8 hours of sleep a night
<> intense workouts
<> no alcohol
<> no sugar
<> 2 cheat meals a week... but their cheat meals are like oatmeal or cereal.
...there is more to it but this is the jest of it. Below are my current results
March 7 ( Day 6 into 30 day BCI challenge) We took measurements again so that we could track the progress of the Challenge properly. I did not know we were taking photo's (which is why I didn't bring my swimsuit in photo 1). If I knew we were taking photo's I would not have eaten beforehand!
The top section is my frame measurements so that won't really change in numbers much.
The second and third section is what will change dramatically if I make wise choices. So from here you can see that I went from 29 % to 17 % body fat. Jess (my trainer) is trying to get me to stop weighing myself in the scale but I can't help it though. I even brought in a photo of what I weighed before I ate because I knew I would be heavier when I got my measurements. She did not care and put down how much I weighed at that moment. boo.
I want to get down to 14% body fat and have at least a 4 pack.
Instead of drinking a bottle of wine every night with friends I mostly hang out with them during the day so I am not the girl who keeps saying " I can't eat that" or "I'm not drinking."
I'm also loving hanging out with my friends at WG while working out.
All in all I'm feeling great and realize how much I am what I eat!
