A kick up the bum if ever I needed it!

So, I went to the gym! Had a great workout, by the end of which, my legs were so wobbly that I wasn't sure my knees would support me to get me down the stairs from the changing rooms in the gym to the front door. Here comes DOMS bad enough to mean I'll be unable to get back to the gym for at least 3 days lol!

Anyway, I thought that since I was kind of on a new start with my workouts today as it has been a couple of weeks and my food hasn't been great, I would get my body fat measured.

When I rejoined the gym in mid June (so more or less 2 months ago) my body fat was a not very good at all 32%. Now, by that stage, I had been eating better for about 2 months and had already lost about half a stone so I've no doubt back in April when I started all this, it would have been even higher.

So now, 2 months later, my body fat is still 30% *sob*

I know I haven't been consistent enough with my workouts and my eating has gone downhill in the last few weeks, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little lower than that and has gone back up again! I am gonna be one of those skinny fat people!!!

So a kick up the butt, that is. No more treats except for one treat meal a week. No more sausage night. No more sneaky porridge for supper.

I am going to measure my body fat on a roughly 8 week basis from now on. I think thats a big enough gap to see a difference. I'll aim for now for approximately 25% and see how I feel and look once I get to that level.

Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck Jildo. How was your BF measured? If it was with a scale, take it with a pinch of salt as they aren't that accurate


  2. It was with one of those computer things you stand on. Its the only method available to me really, and it shows how inaccurate the WLR figure is!!!
