Oh yeah, that insane, maniacal hooting and hollering over Bathurst was MEEEEEE this morning!!! Guess who has finally HIT HER DOUBLE DIGITS!!!!
(*insert repeated jumping up and down here.... and then repeat it again!!!!*)
Can't believe I've finally cracked it - I'm absolutely gobsmacked, SO totally relieved and insanely happy right now! One crazy number on the scales has sent me WILD! hahaha!
Well, not just any double digits neither - but I'm down to 99.2 to be exact!!! (I nearly missed the 99s entirely, bahaha!) Thank you double and triple-whammy workouts this week, and this blissful 1.6 loss!!!
What a freaking awesome way to conclude Week Four of the Challenge - it's been one VERY up and down "emotional roller-coaster" week this one! After having my 'pre-100 meltdown' last weekend, and then my negatively-geared commentary bringing on some serious self-doubt and waterworks - not to mention all the intense workout sessions over the course of the week (I'm a lil tired bunny right now!) - I am SO VERY PLEASED to report in today with such a milestone moment high!!!
This week's "Baring Skin" swimming challenge was FABULOUS! Tuesday I hit the pool for my first session - and managed 40mins / 30 laps... Was so happy with being back in the pool, I hit it again on Thursday AFTER my PT session and cross trainer stint, for 30mins / 30 laps... And not to be outdone, Saturday morning's Aqua Aerobics session (which was so much FUN!) was followed by another 40mins / 40 laps!!! My inner-mermaid was on fire! ... and I'll definitely be adding more swims to the mix in the weeks ahead!
Now, to say I've been working hard is a slight understatement - I'm working at a totally new fitness level! All my weights are up in Pump; I'm going harder, faster, stronger in RPM; I'm adding sessions to my 'slow days' (can't be sitting still now can I?!) and even my PT has upped the duration of all my favourite killer moves - my side planks are now up to 3sets / 15seconds each side, and my prone hold is now 3sets / 30 seconds - and I'm getting through them!! I'm totally AMAZED at my body right now - I can definitely feel the difference in my fitness, my muscles and my endurance - after just a few weeks of new gym activities, I've risen to an entirely new level, and I'm totally IN LOVE with what it's doing for both my mind AND body!! Dare I say it... 'gym junkie'??!!! hahaha!
OHHH and a huge shout out to the Team Amy crew who have now lost an amazing 80+ kilos together in four weeks! You guys are freaking ROCK STARS and I'm so incredibly proud of your efforts, and stepping up to the Challenge with me! Keep it going - a few more weeks to go, MUSH MUSH MUSH!!!! ;)
SO excited guys - I went to go and buy myself my 'double figure' reward - a new pair of seriously sexy runners, but having tried them on (and didn't like how they felt) - I'm back to the drawing board... SOOOOO.... reward suggestions are welcome!
Now, back to my wooohooooo-ing and bouncing!!! :D
Bring on the new week!!
