October 2016 was really a month of surprises for me. Firstly let me share with you how wonderful it has been for me being on the Nutritional Cleansing Program that I started at the end of August.
I start the day feeling very energised and my fitness level has certainly improved. Exercising 3-4 times a week and improving my diet has certainly boosted my mental clarity. I find myself more productive each day as I get more things done then before.
I’m enjoying life much more as I find that even though I have more on my plate to handle this year I’m still able to find time to pursue my passions and do personal development on a daily basis.
I’m really happy that I am making progress in my weight loss goal and the stubborn body fat that I have been carrying around with me has finally started peeling off 🙂
Focusing on Fat Loss instead of Weight loss has brought about the results that I seek.
5 weeks on here are the changes that happened to me.
Weight from 70.4kg —-> 66.7kg (-3.7kg)
Body Fat – 38.4% —> 33.3% (-5.1%)
Metabolic Age – 55 —> 42 ( -13 years)
As you can see I have accumulated quite a spare Tyre from the 3 pregnancies I had. I’m working hard to get a flatter tummy and remove all the unsightly love handles that I have. My aim is to get to looking good with a strong core and be my ideal weight of between 55-58kg.
Since October I haven’t been that diligent on the program and have been slack since the school holidays. My weight has been stagnant
and the scales hasn’t moved due to holiday feasting that I have been indulging in. Now that my schedule has settled down a bit as Chinese New Year is over I’m more focused on my health goals.
I make it a point to exercise with the kids on the weekend and during weekdays I go for walks too if time permits.
I have been tweaking our family diet and will share more about what we have been eating lately in the next post.
