After writing the below post I debated about posting it, but here goes nothing…
Guess what — yours truly doesn’t own a scale, never have and probably never will. I can typically tell when I’ve gained or lost weight by the way my pants fit.
So why don’t I own a scale? Because it lies, okay not really but probably because I would weigh myself everyday. You know what I’m talking about. I also avoid the gym scale like the plague.
Well things are about to change and no I’m not buying a scale, but I did join the 90 day challenge at my gym. You’re probably asking — what does that mean? It’s a little friendly competition to see who can lose the most body fat percentage in three months. There are 20 people participating. I know you’re probably thinking I’m a fit person and don’t have a lot to lose. Well I thought the same thing until…. I had my body fat tested, weighed and photos taken. Looks can be deceiving.
Let’s keep it real — here are the results:
BMI: 30.6% (Fair for my age: 30)
|I’m saving the before picture for a comparison post.|
Now that you know the dirty truth — I’m Skinny Fat — what are my goals? and how will I reach them?
Goals in 90 days:
(Ideally the trainer would like me to lose 18 lbs — 1.5 lbs a week)
What is it going to take:
2 bio fit workouts a week (it’s very similar to cross-fit)
5 group workouts a week (think spin, body pump & yoga)
Eating clean and healthy (No more alcohol or ice cream)
Note: The above mentioned goals were set and discussed with a trainer I didn’t pull them out of thin air.
Of course the trainer asked me who I would want to look like at the end of 90 days and without hesitation I said Jennifer Aniston. Don’t you just love her?!
Thoughts, questions or bits of advise are always welcome…. and just a little more inspiration for all of us 🙂
FYI: Although, there will be monthly updates over the next three months I’m not turning this into a weight loss blog. This is me keeping it real while making me accountable.
