Have read ur posts and I can totally relate in so many ways, I have just done the big 'click' on 'begin challenge' just today. very depressing putting on my before shots and in fact did them myself in the mirror with my iphone, haha, hope they're exceptable. I think if i make a point of getting on this website and surf it everyday (when i'm not exercising of course) i think it'll keep me motivated! I know exercising isnt my problem, its the food and portion sizes, i enjoy a drink or 2 on occasions so needa be mindful of temptations!
Anyway, sorry for the dribble, i'm excited to begin this but fearful at the same time. would love to hear how ur doing.

I am cellecell, I am here to disscuss about stem cell which are collected from womens menstrual blood.
Well my first week is ALMOST done! ... and apart from keeping up the movement thing, I don't think I've accomplished much at ALL!!! BUT ... I am sleeping a darn site better and am still enjoying the excercise!
However, as I said this is pre-season time and as of tommorrow (2 days early) I will start my food diary; I've worked out my daily calorie requirement and worked out that if I reduce those calories by 500 each day I will actually be consuming a few less calories than I need to maintain my IDEAL weight!!! that said I've decided my reduction will come by way of reducing my intake by 250 cal/day and burning off the other 250 cal/day - the only one I will have fairly accurate control over is what I put in my mouth!!
Anyways starting night shift tonight and my darling man surprised me today by taking me out and going fresh fruit and vege shopping *YAY*
Oki Doki - so so far this week I haven't been a total angel as far a nutrition goes ..... and yesterday I felt like bailing ... instead I've chosen to use these first few weeks as like a pre-season period, this week incoroporate the excerise plan, next week continue with the excercise AND run a food diary by the third week - the holes in my bank account will have healed some and I will be able to afford to go PROPER food shopping and not just living off tinned food and pasta with the minimum of fresh produce - god how I'd love a lovely big fresh salad !!! right now I'd love the money to buy the ingredients for a lovely big fresh salad!! AND I'd love my partner to want it too!!!!
One of my biggest challenges this week is the fact I will be working night shift for most of the week and automatically default to wanting bread and all those lovely comfort foods I indulge in when my poor body clock is out of whack! - So my project today is to draw up a "living plan" to survive the night shift week .... coupled with PMT week ... I have to say it IS tough to eat fresh fruit salad, or big fat fresh salad veges in the wee smalls, I can however do a bowl of porridge at 8am prior to going to bed so I don't wake up hungry .... I have stuck a photo of the old me, where I want to get back to on the fridge as a gentle reminder of what I'm working for, next step will be to pull out my goal outfit and have it in a visual spot as an incentive.
Anyways so far the excercise has gone really well this week with the exception of Australia Day ... when I defaulted entirely .... I'm probably not working out as hard as I could BUT I do look forward to the next day work out - at the end I feel like I have done some thing to benefit myself but without the torture element -- you could say I'm easing myself into it!
Not sure that the forum is specifically designed for my "blog" but no one else seems to be using it so atleast the forums look active :)
have a great weekend!
hey body blitzers;
Day 2 .... Australia Day ... didn't go well for me - and I'm not even an Australian, Don't worry I paid for it with a sore tummy and bloating and gas and nausea all night ... after i consumed beer, and bread rolls yesterday, in fact that was only part of my nutritional sins yesterday compounded by the fact i did very little excercise! unless taking the dog to the dog park , holding her down in the doggy wash; de-fleaing and administering worming medication to a very scratchy and agile wee cat and sweltering through the unbelivable hell-like temperatures yesterday counts as some kind of excercise!! (please let it count)
Anyways back on track - I have NO DESIRE to repeat my behaviours from yesterday and will take puppydawg for expected hill walk today (no choice there, live on a hill) and head to the gym before my stepchildren arrive this afternoon! will have to tackle that issue when it arises!
Anyhow people ... one day at a time huh?!
Today I start the challenge! ... I do LOVE a challenge and I do NOT love the body I currently have - so I'm hoping that the combination of the two will spur me on some! All my motivation will be coming from within as my lovely man isn't keen to join me on the challenge ..... YET !
I'm your typical YO-YO dieter and in the past 10 years my wieght has ranged from 68kg to 97kg ... up and down; up and down .... it's not so much the numbers that concern me as how I felt in my own skin at a particular point in time.
I miss going shopping and KNOWING that I will actually FIT the clothes I'm looking at instead of taking clothes into the changing room and endure that sinking feeling as I can't
A) get the damn thing up over my hips
B) get the damn zip done up
and have that awful feeling compounded by the disgust, frustration and feeling like the fattest person in the vicinty, and the feeling of hopelessness that I will NEVER get this beast I live in (aka my body) under control - now I know that's irrational but that's how it FEELS ... the reality is the beast isn't the body I live in, and it's not in my head .... the beast is the world I live in and whilst I get my body back to feeling strong and healthy, I need to teach my mind how to handle the beast that is all around me ... maybe i should think of it as a pack of dogs and I need to be leader of the pack?? ... hmmm either way I look at it - it's going to be a lot of work!
good luck, hang in there
I have finally started the Bodyblitz Challenge today! FINALLY!!! I have got a positive attitude & determined to complete the 12 weeks. Wish me luck. xxxx
My name is Danni and I'm finally getting my butt into gear with a 12 week challenge. I've been a repeat offender but have never really made it to the end before...This time I'm determined to change this! So I thought jumping onthe forum would be a good start :-) Can't wait to chat to you all and I hope all is going well with your body blitz!
hi friends I am Alan Smith currently I am working as
a health article writer ..................
I am new to this body blitz thing! I have been trying to do the program on my own for a while and not registering but its not really worked out very well. So a friend 'persuaded' me to register and put photo's and all on. Very scary. So I've completed week one and feel good. Only going ot measure fortnightly in case i don't see results and get depressed. anyway I'm enjoying thew work so far. The food is a little difficult and i find i'm a bit hungry at times but I'm sugar free for 8 days and feelign much better.
anyway just wanted to commit by using the forum and look forward to reading all the posts and writing a few occassionally
Decided I'm going to log a few ideas/ comments to keep me motivated. I'm about to complete week 2 and although I haven't lost a kilo yet I do feel motivated. I have noticed I already look a little better, posture is better afetr doing a little bit of abs. I stand strighter, and hold myself in. I have given in to buying lifesaves musks - as I had major sugar cravings two days... but considering I've been have protein shakes, carrots and bananas I don't think the lifesaves were too bad. :-) A long weekend ahead, but I don't think that will get in the way of my exercising. This week I have been good with bodypump, RPM and just plain old treadmil, but I think I should start walking to work a good 4km walk before I start the day should help shift a little bit of the kgs. But with DLS about to start this weekend I lose an hrs sleep and won't feel like getting up just that bit earlier. So soon enough I'll start the morning walks. Time to kick start the long weekend!
This is my first time at the 12 week Body Challenge and I am so pleased to see others on here going for it as well.
I am new to the gym, and I became aware of the 12 week challenge on the walls at the gym when I saw the transformation of ordinary people of all ages. Wow! When I asked how long it took them to make such dramatic changes, I was told it was only 12 weeks.
I said that is what I want too.
I don't have the means for a personal trainer so I am going to do this myself and I see others on this site have managed to do this as well.
I am not sure of the exercises to do this, tho I am starting out with some suggestions from the local gym.
3 Sets of 10 Reps on the following machines:
Vertical Chest 13.5kg
Compound Row 30kg
Assisted Chin Up 64kg
Leg Press 64kg
Abs Machine 30kg
Fit Ball Squat Pulse if needed to burn
I walk 1hr first thing in the morning and also do 1hr cardio on assorted machines at the gym later in the day.
For those with experience, can you comment if I am on the right track or not?
I wish you well Gem. See you at the finish line. :)
