Well I woke up this morning feeling so excited that it was just one more sleep until I could say I am officially being trained by Michelle bridges. Then came the realisation that today I had to do measurements & weigh in!
Doubt hit & it took me at least an hour or two before I would even look. Measurements were first! I was devastated to find that I had been measuring incorrectly all this time. For 4 weeks it is the measurement drops that has kept me going since the scales werent doing anything. Now I find that I have been so wrong and have no idea if anything I have been doing is make a difference. Scales werent much better since they said I was still sitting on 74.4kg.
I cant tell you how upset I was this morning. I even contemplated giving up since if doing my best still wasnt showing results then I was wasting not only my time but Michelles time too. I am not worth that trouble if it isnt going to happen. After lots of tears I had a chat to a very good friend. She reminded me how far I had come in just these short few weeks and also how much more positive I am now. She told me not to give up! She even told me to change my facey status to something more positive to put out there to the world that I am doing this & I will not give up. the power of friendship & writing hey.
Well I am feeling a little better now. Still down that I havent seen any changes though. My PT commented at circuit class yesty that he can see that I am becomeing fitter. I am lasting alot longer during our runs before I start walking, I am able to do crunches, situps, burpees with the fittest of the girls and pretty much keep up and he is just overall stoked that I have come so far in such a short time. This is another thing that has got me through this morning. I must remember that th changes on the outside may not come straight away but the fitness levels & loosening clothes are a sure sign something is working!
So here are my opening stats for 12 Week Body Transformation with Michelle Bridges! All measured exactly how Michelle has asked.
Distance from knee: 33cm
Right Thigh: 57cm
Left Thigh: 58cm
Waist/Hip Ratio: 0.86
We are also meant to take a photo. Not sure if I am gutsy enough to do that although I know I will kick myself if I dont. Will get hubby to take one tomorrow morning since he is off work & I have no idea how to work the camera on a timer which sucks cause we have a tripod here so would be able to do my own. Well he is my hubby & I should not be ashamed of letting him take it should I? Well its my only option!
Will be posting more often now that the program is officially starting. I cant wait to look back on this blog in 12 weeks and be proud to say that I did it. I did the hard yards and I am proud of my achievements.
