Fitness Challenge - November Report

in #life6 years ago

Late October I set myself a challenge to exercise more as I need to lose some weight. 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.

I am writing this November report for myself, so I have the motivation to continue this December, and also for you who wants some motivation to do the same.

Fitness Challenge - November Report

I am glad to report that I haven't missed a single day walking and exercising for November. That was challenging to start as some days I was a bit lazy, but I still did it. After 3 weeks I was starting to look forward to my daily fitness hour.

Let's see my achievement now.

I walked 31 days in November 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.

I am not sure that the app is accurate for the calories, but I am extremely impressed with my results for November, never in my life I have exercised that much.

Even when we were on trips and staying at the hotel, I managed to still do my one hour of fitness as seen in my previous blog posts:

One Night at the SO Sofitel Bangkok Hotel

Ibis Bangkok Sathorn Hotel and Exercising at the Lumpini Park

This post is where I first talk about my fitness challenge:

3 Things I have Set Myself to Do Every Day!

I will spare you a photo showing my belly before and after, but these are my results.

My maximum weight was 81.4 kilograms in November and the minimum 80.1 kilograms, which makes a loss of 1.3 kilograms in November. Looking at December, the minimum weight is 79.9 kilograms, which today makes a loss of 1.5 kilograms.

Fitness challenge in December?

I am continuing this fitness challenge for December as I want to reach 78 kilograms on the first of January. Then, I'd like to reach 74 kilograms this year and maintain it. Writing these fitness reports here on Steemit will help me to be accountable.

I am grateful to have this fitness equipment available for free in the village where I live, which makes it very easy.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Impressive! I'm excited and happy to see your commitment in fitness.
Congratulations! You look much better now. It's not always the look, sometimes you might not distinguish by seeing pictures, but you can feel it. You will definitely feel much better and lighter.

Thank you very much @rezoanulvibes for your nice comment and encouragements.

Congratulations on committing to your goals every day this past month! That open-air gym location looks fabulous! I am hiding from freezing winds currently and am attempting to keep my cardiovascular activity up during the winter when I don't enjoy walking/running outdoors for exercise.

It is no coincidence that avoiding the cold weather has typically led to an increase on the scale but I plan to not let a lack of exercise be an excuse any longer. I have had so much more success in losing weight and gaining strength and energy once I zeroed on the way of eating that made sense for me. The exercise is the part that may seem like the hard work, but the real discipline comes at meal time! I enjoyed looking back at some examples of Thai cuisine that you shared previously, I still need to try matcha! Do you prefer yours warm or cool?

Thank you very much for your long comment @thisismework. Exercising is not the most difficult, changing food habits is. It takes more learning to know what to eat and when, and what not to eat or in moderation. It is fortunate that it is always hot here. I like matcha tea hot or cold, preferably hot for breakfast.

i think it is helpful post..

I am glad you like it. Thanks for your comment!
