Monday marked the final day of the nutrition challenge I had been participating in with my boot camp. I do not really consider myself to be a competitive person, but I find having a group of motivated people around me brings out the competitiveness. So maybe I am a tad competitive!
In order to determine a winner, we are being scored on three different items:
- Overall point score (see my post here for description on point system)
- Best time overall on bench mark workout (see below for workout details)
- Most improved times on bench mark & in weight/measurements.
My goal had been to lose 10lbs. in six weeks, which I knew was going to be a stretch. My final weight, measurements & times are as follows:
Day 1: Day 42:
- Weight: 118.8 lbs. —————— 112.8 lbs.
- Waist: 25.5 in. ———————— 22.5 in.
- Hips: 35.5 in. ————————- 34.5 in.
Bench Mark Workout
Run 1/2 mile
- 3 Rounds of:
- 100 Jumping Jacks
- 80 Mountain Climbers (total)
- 60 Squats
- 40 Push Ups
- 20 Burpees
Run 1 mile
I didn’t get a look at my original bench mark time, but I improved by 6 minutes!! Running is not my forte, so I knew that I needed to do the exercises as quickly as possible in order to get a head start on the run. I ended up being the first done with the circuit, but had to sprint the last quarter mile to keep my first place spot. I ended up coming in a second or two after our resident marathon runner.
We will hopefully have the results next week – we do not know what the prize will be yet, but I am hoping for a FREE month of boot camp! In celebration, I ate the most delicious piece of chocolate torte, and then subsequently had a huge stomach ache. Totally worth it.
MyFitnessPal app was been my best friend these last 6 weeks, and I am going to stick with it as I found it extremely helpful in seeing my calorie intake and keeping myself on track. Plus, bathing suit season is already here and I’ve got my eye on a new bikini!
What are you doing to get summer ready?
