Week 3 began yesterday, with the Fit Test. Here are my results, old scores in brackets.
New Fit Test scores~ (+1st FT Scores)
-Squat Jumps - 28 (26)
-Pushups - 20 (18)
-Burpees - 8 (13)
-High Knees - 95 (115)
-Switch Lunge - 33 (29)
-Tuck Jumps - 18 (16)
-Tricep Dips - 19 (17)
- Straight Crunch 21 (23)
My numbers have gone up in most of them, so I'll take that! I'm happy with the small improvements but baffled on the ones I was worse at, heh! I was going to do two rounds of the fit test, to get a longer workout, but ahh... I decided I was foofed after just one round. Or I was lazy.
The good thing is I've started Week 3 and now we're rolling! Yay! I went to Zumba on Monday night too and loved it. This class seemed to last longer and I was able to get stuck in and push harder in parts I knew. And we danced to a new song or two, one of them being The Pussycat Dolls "Jai Ho" (Spelt wrong I'm thinking!) so that was lots of fun. We also had a 'battle'.... which was hilarious. I do have a giggle and get a real sweat on.
The eating has still been (really) bad but now... I have a PLAN! Yay for plans, hey?? So it's Lent. Lent starts today. My friend in work who I zumba with has been telling me she is giving up chocolate and wine for Lent - which will be very hard for her. I thought all yesterday of something that would be good to give up, but also a real challenge for me.
For Lent - I am giving up TAKEAWAY. No takeaway at all for the whole of Lent. This is my worst... what... thorn in my side? It's so easy to be lazy and order takeaway... and I do it far too often. It's creeping up as well, as I used to eat a lot of takeaway before I lost the big chunk of weight, and the takeaway was what led to me getting so big.
So it STOPS now. I'm really happy to do this... Not only will it give me a major health kick but I will save a bunch of money too!!! Homecooked meals only - and I was going to allow restaurant meals but we'll scrap that - homecooked meals ONLY for the whole of lent. No fast food, no takeaway.
Also, I talked zumba friend into trying some different stuff too - and we are now booked on a "Body Attack" class for Thursday night, woohoo! My only worry for this is getting home afterwards and being 'too tired' to BodyRock... But I'm 3 weeks into the challenge now... I am NOT slipping. I WILL finish this challenge and I WILL be proud of myself for sticking with it. I'm sick of always falling off and quitting early.
THIS IS NOT HAPPENING ANYMORE.
So, Lent, we begin! :)
