Fitness Challenge - February Report

in life •  9 months ago

Would you read my February fitness challenge report, which is my fourth monthly report because it's the month I got the best results in my weight loss and healthier body efforts?

Fitness Challenge - February Report

I started this fitness challenge by myself on the first of November, using the Samsung Health app to record and track my progress on my phone, and my will power.

I wrote a report on Steemit at the end of each month so I can document my results, and be accountable to you and myself. This helped me to continue doing a 2-kilometer walk and exercising 40 minutes every day without fail, and also explore other solutions in healthier eating.

You may be interested to read my three previous reports:

I have never exercised like this in my entire life or made strict diet changes, and I will show you that change is possible if you want to. You will be in better shape and feel better in your body, this might be useful for you.

Let's see my results for this fourth month.

Fitness Challenge - February Report

I am glad to report that again, I have walked my 2 kilometers and exercised 40 minutes every day in February 2018.

Let's see what the app is saying for "Walking."

Fitness Challenge - Walking

As you can see, I walked 28 days in February for a total of 62.35 kilometers in 10 hours and 49 minutes. In January I walked 69.53 kilometers, in November 66.59 kilometers, and in November, 62.26 kilometers.

We are missing 3 days in February so that explains the lower number of kilometers walked. In 4 months I have walked 260.73 kilometers and I don't know how it's even possible.

On some occasions, I have walked more than 2 kilometers like when I went to the Lumpini Park three Saturdays.

Let's have a look at my exercise this February.

Fitness Challenge - February Report

These are for the 4 months.

Fitness Challenge - February Report

I have exercised for 19 hours and 1 minute in February and burned 11,303 calories if the app is accurate. This is less than the other months because February is only 28 days.

My weight loss results.

February is my best result so far because my average weight is down 1,9 kilograms from January.

February weight loss

The second month my average weight was down 0.5 kilograms, my third month it was down another 0.8 kilograms, and now it is down another 1,9 kilograms.

Average weight loss: 80.8 - 77.6 = 3.2 kilograms

Weight loss: 81.4 (max) - 77.2 (min) = 4.2 kilograms

I try to present the data as it looks the best because I have been stable at 77.2 kilograms for several days now.

Now I am very pleased with the results, but it was not done with walking and exercising alone.

In November and December, I only walked and exercised, and changed my diet a bit, like drinking more fruit smoothies and reducing meat.

In mid January, I started to make smoothies with fruits and vegetables and then started to try juicing.

You may be interested to read the posts where I talk about that.

This February, I continued for several days to drink my green smoothie recipe, and then started to experiment more and more with vegetable and fruit smoothies and juices.

veggie juice

Last week, after studying about juicing and weight loss on the Internet, I decided to go with juicing long term and I bought a new cold press juicer, which makes the minimum waste, gives the maximum juice and nutrients.

Kumings veggie juice

Juicing vegetables with fruits has been a revelation for me and I have become quite addicted to it as my body feels extremely good every day, and this is what helped a lot with the weight loss.

This is my daily breakfast when I'm at home, after exercising and my walk.

My breakfast

I also have a small coffee early in the morning, not ready to quit that yet!

Then, I prepare the veggie juice, which is my lunch.

Kevings veggie juice

Here it is.

My lunch

I can say that the juice is delicious and I drink it slowly between noon and 2:00 PM. I felt hungry at 4:00 PM when I started, not anymore.

So what do I eat for dinner you ask?

I normally eat rice with some meat or sausages, and vegetables.

I cut down on cookies and I may have a fruit or some juice later in the evening.

As you can see, I still keep some normality in my diet, so it doesn't look too hard to make it a daily routine. My goal is not to become a vegan, but to have a much more balanced diet with meat as a minimum.

Well Michel, when I read the title of the post, I decided to come and give you some motivation.
But after checking your post and your images, I saw that you're self-motivated and already made a great progress.

It seems to me you have a real fitness target and I'm sure you will achieve it
But once you achieve it, don't stop and keep yourself in a permanent healthy lifestyle.

Thank you Michel for sharing such a positive post today, glad to read it :)

Yes, you are right @imran-aslam, it's easier to workout with friend and it's sometimes difficult to find time for it.

Admirable progress! Not only that you've lost weight, but your doing so much good to your overall health by small steps. 😊 You could also write about how you've felt after incorporating all those new habits into your life. E.g. what has been hard if something has been, or your overall feelings. I think many of us would find that interesting!

Thank you very much @fajarabbasi for your comment and I am glad that you like the post.

Being healthy is simple, right? "Eat less, move more, i.e exercise." That's easy to say, but practicality is one of the most important things when it comes to health and fitness . and so just like the saying ' no pain no gain' i see you even surpassing your fitness target. @gmichelbkk please check out my supernatural contest here. Thanks.
