It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted an exercise update here, but the Biggest Loser Challenge continues!
With my last update, I was weighing in at 103.8kg. However, with some increased exercise, I’ve been steadily working the weight downwards. This morning, after a 3.2 mile jog, I showered and weighed in at 99.4kg.
Now, no doubt throughout the day that may rise to over 100kg again, but it’s a great sign that I’m nearing my target weight. In fact, it’s virtually the midway point. Remember, my starting weight roughly 6 weks ago was 109.8kg, and my target weight is 90kg. So I’m literally in the middle.
And what’s more, I’m really starting to feel the effects of the exercise now. My waistline is visibly trimmer, and my stamina is increasing weekly. This last couple of days, I’ve started jogging. I’ve never really tried to jog before, but I’m finding that I can jog longer before I become breathless, and my recovery time is shortening, so I can pick up jogging again quite quickly.
My plan continues to be to get down to my target weight as quickly as possible, then work on maintaning that weight while trying to tone up my midsection. All being well, I’m on track to being my target weight beforewe go on holiday in the summer.
How am I going to achieve this? Well, I’ll continue doing the Biggest Loser Wii game sessions daily. Those are working wonders right now. But I believe I’m attacking the weight harder by supplementing this with cycling or jogging sessions. I’m also trying to mix up the exercise sessions by making sure I take one day for total rest, and mixing up the times and intensities of exercise to that my weight loss doesn’t start to plateau.
