Challenges all over

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Not only are challenges a way of life on Spark. I joined a challenge at the Fitness Center here at work. They are running a Maintain Don't Gain Challenge from 11/17-1/15. You go there on 11/17 and get weighed, fat percentage BMI and Waist and Hip measurement. I typically weigh myself before I step into the shower so I got to learn what my winter clothes weigh. on Nov 17 I weighed (with a heavy sweater and jeans) 127.8 My fat percentage was 32.8 as measured by a highly inaccurate scale. My BMI was 21.4 My waist was 28 and hips were 32.5. I'm not bragging I just want to write it all down so I can compare it to the measurements in January. We get a free fitness coach. I weigh in every Tuesday and each time we maintain we get a raffle ticket for a $50 gift card. On the 20th my weight was 128.4 and again on 11/27 it was 128.4. It's a good accountability measure.

    Way to go! During the holidays is a great time to do a challenge. I'm challenging myself for Christmas. :)

    Always good to keep track of one's measurements - easy way to track what's going on with our bodies.

    My gym is doing something similar. I could choose weight loss or transformation - transformation being a change in my body shape. I chose weight loss but that is not working too well. However, I have lost 2% body fat and gained almost 3% muscle mass in just two weeks so far. I have been doing a lot of strength exercises, guess I need to ramp up the cardio.

    Good for you for joining the challenge. This is the second one I've done at my gym and it is making me a lot more accountable to myself.

    Fun! Our gym has the same thing, but weigh in next Friday and we'll be in FL. My goal is to maintain over the holidays.
