’twas the night before 12wbt

Today’s daily food intake…

and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse…

Is it silly that I feel like it’s Christmas Eve? I’m full of excitement about 12WBT starting up again officially tomorrow. Excitement and a wee bit of nervousness because I’ve set myself such a large goal this year. I was hoping to have gotten down to 100kg even by the time we kicked off tomorrow, but I’ve missed it by a few kilos. Which means I have about 18kg to lose over the next 12 weeks.

Of course, there is an official weigh in tomorrow morning so maybe I have lost a little more? I’m hoping so, because 18kg sounds like a lot to lose over such a short period. That’s where the most of my nervousness is coming in. Can I lose the weight I’ve set myself to lose? Well I’m going to damn well try and I’m going to be happy with whatever I lose, (if in the future I seem despondent over what I may or may not have lost, please remind me that I said I was going to be happy!) even if it’s not the full 18kg.

Today I did the rest of my fitness test and I’m putting myself well into the beginner’s class. Here are my results:

Fitness test

  • 1km time trial: 8:33
    I am so happy with this result, I was expecting into the 10minutes.
  • Wall sit: 32.2seconds
    Not the best, not the worst. I’ve been doing so much extra running and exercises lately I’ve got really sore knees constantly. I know if it wasn’t for that I could have done better. But in 4 weeks time I will do better, because I will weigh less and my knees won’t hurt as much as they do now!
  • Push ups (on knees): 19
    This one actually surprised me, made me wonder if I was doing them properly. Happy with this result.
  • Ab strength: Stage 1.
    Hell I couldn’t even do one full sit up properly. I sucked at these!
  • Sit and reach: -2cm
    Nope, can’t touch my toes. Yet.

So there we go. If you’re interested these were my results from 2010. There are some tests where I was better back then, but others where I’m worse – like the time trial, last time around it was 10:46. I’ve shaved 2 mins off – yay me.

To everyone out there who will be joining me in doing 12WBT this round GOOD LUCK. I hope you all get to your goals that you have set yourself and that you have fun while you’re doing it.
