My five Week Challenge - 27 days to go!

27 Days to go of My 5 week challenge which started  on Monday 17th March 2014. The Goal?  37 days to lose 1 whole stone. That means just under 4 weeks left to go. OMG!

As of this morning, I have lost 2 and a half pounds of the 14 to lose. That means 11 1/2 pounds left, which means 3lbs per week is the target I must hit.

Today's progress then - 3 proper meals, healthy snacks, and shock - plenty of water! My skin is starting to look better which is a side effect, and a good one!!

This morning before work I did a workout routine for approx 10 minutes, as I am starting to build it up now. The clock is ticking after all. Today it consisted of:
  • 100 abs/crunches
  • 15 press ups
  • 15 tricep dips
  • 10 front kicks
  • 10 knee lifts
  • 10 lunge jumps
  • 10 punches
  • 10 squats
  • 1 min running on the spot
  • 10 side steps
Today was also a gym day. This evenings session consisted of:
  • 1 mile run (120 cals)
  • fast incline walk (80 cals)
  • 2 x sets of 80 abs = 160 abs
  • Stepper (150 cals)
  • Cross Trainer intervals (50 cals)
  • Stair master (100 cals)
  • Interval springs (50 cals)
Total burned on cardio = 550cals. Plus abs. It took about an hour and a half in total. Quite intense tonight!

Steps wise, I am on a roll - 14,000 and counting! Whoop! All of a sudden, its like something has clicked into place. I don't dread going to the gym any more, and I find myself planning times to go rather than thinking of reasons not to!! 

27 days to go. 11 1/2lbs to lose. PT tomorrow evening. Onwards and upwards (down on the scales ) :)
