  1. Alright week 4 update since starting Lite'n'easy I've lost 2.6% of my starting weight! 2cm each off my hips and waist. I think I'm really going to have to push myself to reach my goals by Australia Day but still I'm liking the progress
  2. Hello Perth/WA peeps sorry I've been MIA recently. How is everyone? Did anyone do the City to Surf the other weekend?
  3. Well Rebels I'm back again! I do apologise for my absence, I've been out and about levelling up my way. I got a new job, one with career opportunities. I'm now a "TRIM administrator & Trainer" (TRIM is a records management software) with local government. I'm now permanent, have a lot more freedom and responsibilities which is awesome. I booked a cruise through South East Asia. I'll be visiting 3 countries I've never been to before which I'm super excited about! I brought a cross trainer and it lives in the middle of my lounge room - no more excuses. I started up my own website, not ready to share it with y'all yet, maybe soon I'll have the confidence I competed in the Perth City to Surf 4km, I walked, ran, jogged my way through it in 41m 15s! I'm currently trying out Lite'n'Easy, the first 2 weeks I lost over 2.5kg, weigh in is tomorrow for week 3. If the results are as fantastic at the end of 4 weeks I'm going to keep it up. I get breakfast, lunch and dinner for 5 days a week, a lot of proper food - none of that water rubbish you get in the freezer section of the supermarket where you can't tell if its cauliflower, chicken or cardboard that you're eating. I had risotto the other day for lunch, steak for dinner, bacon and eggs for breakfast. I'm really pleased with it, it's a little costly but when you break it down it's really not too bad for what you're getting. The other 2 days I have meals with my partner, with never 2 in a row being the rule in regards to junk meals. I've worked out that I can get to under 100kg by Halloween if I stay committed to what I'm doing (plus I have exercise plans for when I plateau). I can get to my goal weight by Australia Day if I push myself. So I'm back here at NF asking y'all for the support I need to achieve this. I know I can count of you guys, this community is the most supportive bunch of people I've ever met! Love Rachy

    Rachy87 vs BMI

    Hi guys! I've been away on holiday but we're half way through so I figure I owed y'all an update Goal 1: I'm struggling to add in the warm up/cool down aspect. I need to try harder to remember more so than anything. I've got ice skating as a regular cardio each week, trying to find other activities I enjoy to add to that. Goal 2: Barely touched the stuff whilst on holidays, be interesting to see how I go now that I'm back. Goal 3: This I'm not too sure about, nights where I have salad with dinner I don't really eat too much (I liked cooked veggies but I'm lazy and salad is easy). Those nights I only count them as 1/2 rather than a full tick for this goal. Life: I have a fitbit now, it's been interesting. Having an office job means I don't move too much.
  6. Thank you Yeah the beep test is a cruel mistress that's for sure! More than happy to be your hero Yeah I like referring to it as Big Massive Inaccuracy. I did not know that the inventor had intended it for groups. Unfortunately it's what they are measuring me by so I'm stuck, *sigh*
  7. I have a fitbit now... It reminds me of the SpyKids movie "how long have we been falling for?" "I don't know my watch doesn't tell time"

    Rachy87 vs BMI

    Alright I'm back trying 6 week challenges again (after reading the latest newsletter - thanks Steve). For those who don't know I'm wanting to enlist and while I feel confident about being able to work up to certain requirements such as X sit ups and X push ups and find some other requirements daunting ie BMI and Shuttle-run. Main Quest: meet requirements for enlisting into the defence force. Minimum requirements for females: BMI of 32.9* or lower *Ideally under 29.9 but up to 32.9 is acceptable however will be monitored. 4 push ups 20 sit ups 6.5 shuttle run/beep test score My main thread for completing the quest above can be found here! As you can see I'm treating each week as an attempt at a different level of a new 'game' with the current working title of "Reducing BMI so I can enlist". I'm using this 6 week challenge as a 'walk-through' of 3 levels, taking 20 (for those DnD freaks out there) and doing them properly and with care Level 1 Purge house of junk food & red bull challenge Complete 4 exercise activities Work on sit ups and push ups 3 timesBonus Stuff: Prepare a meal plan Make up meal and snack boxes for the week Attempt beep test at the park to allow 20m straights instead of doing 2 x 10m straights at home. Level 2 Complete 4 exercise activities Work on sit ups and push ups 4 times Have veggies with dinner x5Bonus Stuff: Look into monitoring apps to track progress Attempt beep test training. Keep up with Red Bull challenge Level 3 Complete 4 exercise activities Work on sit ups and push ups 4 times Have veggies with breakfast x1Bonus Stuff: Keep Up with Red Bull Challenge Veggies with dinner x5 Try a running app Which translates into: Goal 1: Build up to a exercise routine of warm up (which includes: sit ups and push ups), cardio and cool down (which includes: sit ups and push ups), 3 times a week Goal 2: Red Bull challenge (I drink it M-F before work, cut back 1 at a time until I get to just 1 per week) Goal 3: Eat more veggies (5 x dinner and 1 x breakfast each week) Life Goal: Research apps for tracking fitness and helping with running. Try them out. Rankings (to be completed by the end of week 6): Goal 1 (Str 2/Dex 3): A= 4/4 (4 cardio, 4 warm up/cool down with sit ups and push ups in a week), B= 4/3, C= 3/3 and D= 3/2 Goal 2 (Con 4): Pass: got down to 1 Red Bull by week 6 Goal 3 (Con 3/Cha 1): A= 5/2 (dinner with veggies x5, breakfast with veggies x2), B= 5/1, C= 5 (can be made up of just dinners with veg or combo to include b/fast) and D= 4 Life (Wis 2): Pass: downloaded and played with some fitness apps. Let's get to it!
  11. Today is berocca day. I'm doing ok so far.... Didn't get to do yoga yesterday as I was the only person in my department and wasn't able to leave the front desk for an entire hour. Also had to stay back into close so by the time I got home and everything exercise didn't happen which I'm rather bummed out about. Looks like I'm facing the same today and maybe tomorrow as well :/
