Fitness Challenge - December Report

in #life6 years ago (edited)

Would you read my December fitness challenge report because if you are trying to exercise daily and lose weight as I do, then this may motivate you?

I started my personal fitness challenge on the first of November, which is to walk 2 kilometers and exercise 40 minutes using fitness equipment every day.

Let's see my results for this second month. 

Fitness Challenge - December Report

I am glad to report that I haven't missed a single day walking in December, and concerning exercising I missed only one session, which was on the last day of the year.

My excuse: I was in a resort in Khao Yai and they did not have fitness equipment, in addition of that, I had an upset stomach and was not really in the mood to be creative and do the exercises without the equipment.

Let's see my achievement now.

As you can see, I walked 31 days in December for a total of 66.59 kilometers in 11 hours and 54 minutes. I exercised 30 days for 20 hours and 10 minutes, and burned 12,392 calories.

Let's compare that to November.

In November I walked 31 days for a total of 62.26 kilometers in 10 hours and 30 minutes. I exercised 31 days for 20 hours and 26 minutes, and burned 12,638 calories.

Looking at my results this month, I can congratulate myself because I walked an additional 4.33 kilometers. Concerning the exercises, I have exercised 16 minutes less, and I will forgive myself for that.

I am still extremely impressed with my results so far and for doing it two months in a raw every day. I have never exercised that much in my life and have done it even when on trips and staying at the hotel.

My weight loss results.

If I want to present this data in a good light, I would say that my maximum weight was 81.4 kilograms in November and my minimum weight this January is 79.3 kilograms, which is a loss of 2.1 kilograms.

Now if I look at the averages, my average weight was 80.8 kg is November, 80.3 kg in December and 79.7 kg for the first three days of January 2018. That's a total loss of 1.1 kilograms, which is not that much considering that I walked 128.85 kilometers in 2 months and exercised 40 hours and 36 minutes.

I am starting to wonder if the fitness I do really has benefits in terms of weight loss. I am also more careful on what I eat and eat much less than what I used to, so I was expecting better results.

All in all I feel better in my body, maybe the cholesterol in my blood has started to go down and that the fat elsewhere will be next. I have still less belly fat than previously and someone suggested that the weight loss is minimum because I'm building muscles instead.

What do you think? 

Fitness challenge in January?

I am continuing this fitness challenge for January, of course, even if I did not reach my goal of 78 kilograms on the first of January.

My final goal is to reach 74 kilograms this year and maintain it, and if I lose 500 grams per month, it will be 11 months later.

Wish me luck!

Writing these fitness reports here on Steemit will encourage me to continue and be accountable.

One last photo taken this morning.

What the app recorded today.

I forgot to mention that this month I bought shorts, shirts and socks, and even a plastic bottle designed for runners, so I am fully equipped now, like a pro.

I hope this is helpful for you.

You're doing great! Being consistent is the key to get the result that you always wanted.

Walking and exercise will not only help us to get in shape but also help to improve our memory. I have made a post recently about 10 Effective Ways to Improve Your Memory.

Thank you very much for your nice comment.

yes sir!
Keep that going and never stop :)
try doing some high intensity workouts can actually fasten your progress sir :)
try dropping by a crossfit gym and try it out :)
of course I'm only suggesting!
keep that going man! <3

Thank you very much for your nice comment @mamalikh13. I try to make it as easy as I can to keep being consistent because if I start more intense workouts I may not have the motivation to continue.

for sure!
get comfortable doing what you do as of now :)

This post gives me so much joy. I started working out today after a long hiatus. Glad to see your progress.
