Sunday is the first day of the 12 Week Body Transformation program and so this week I had to document my current state of being a bit of a fatty.
Here are my measurements
And in the grand tradition of before photographs, I’m wearing no make-up, my hair isn’t done, my posture is poor and I’m wearing a very unflattering outfit.
I had a bit of a shock today when doing a fitness test before starting the 12 Week Body Transformation next week. It may have not been my best effort because Terri and I decided to do the test together in Perth but I forgot to bring up my exercise gear and had to borrow hers. This means my pants were too small, my shoes too big and I had no sports bra. Still Here are my results:
- Number of pushups without stopping = 8
- Time taken to run 1 km whilst holding my boobs up = 6 minutes 33 seconds
- Longest plank (from knees) = 3 minutes 4 seconds
- Wall sit = 54 seconds
- Flexibility test = -13 cm (I was 13 cm away from being able to touch my toes!)
All these stats were put into a formula and the advice given was that I should start the beginner program. Beginner! I ran a marathon a year ago and now I’m back to the beginner program!
It was a shock!
