Yuck, Oh my, Eeerk and Woohoo

I'm so excited that the official round is finally here and I am so excited for the first mind set lesson. This is where I struggle, even though I have had an excellent pre-season. So much better than I ever could have imagined, I still told myself it was ok to go out with a band last weekend....and Oh did I go out with a bang.
Uni is about to start back up for me and that is going to be a struggle, I reckon I would eat my daily calorie allowance plus some in the few hours of study I get done a day.

So, Yuck - Task 8....all those horrible measurements, so depressing. I was so happy (well not really) living in denial about my size. Telling myself I'm not really that bad....Well the cold hard measurements don't lie, I am that bad...I am obese and quite frankly I have no desire to be obese any longer.
Oh My - That photo.....again I see myself in the mirror (briefly) every day and I was still shocked when I saw my photo. It's funny, when I get dressed I look at myself and think "I don't look that bad" but photo's don't would seem I can cover up and look semi decent in clothes but naked's horrid.
Eeerk - Fitness test...well not surprisingly I'm a beginner. I must admit I hadn't deluded myself into thinking I'd be intermediate..My 1km time trial took 9 minutes, I was happy with that cause I slow jogged most of it, I reckon if I'd walked it probably would have been faster. 20 push ups, I was stoked with that. 48 seconds for the wall sit, again pretty darn happy with that. Flexibility was + 11, absolutely stoked with that.....notice I've been avoiding one??? Oh dear the sit up was dismal....I could not even get to level 1, I was quite shocked I must admit, but it can only get better from here.

and finally WOOHOO....I was deadset beside myself happy to report that my pre-season weight loss is 7kg. That's pretty much just sticking to my calorie allowance with a little bit of exercise. I am so proud of myself.

So my thoughts on Week 1, day 1.....Can't say I loved the berry brucshetta, But I loved the Turkey and cheese wrap and everyone in my house loved the steak with salsa. I procrastinated all day about doing exercise yesterday, all day! And finally about 3.30pm, I made myself JFDI and I did day 1 of C25k. This morning when I got up around 5am to feed my baby boy, I literally argued with myself the whole time I was feeding him..."I want to go back to bed", "don't go back to bed, do an exercise video"....This went on for half an hour and once I put my little man back to bed, I went into robot mode, shut off my mind and just got into my workout gear and did Mish's video....and of course felt so much better for it.

Happy week 1 everyone and PS the apple muesli is absolutely delish x
