Last week, I set myself a goal to up the intensity of my workouts and burn at least 500 calories in each session. I reached this goal in 5 of my 6 workouts, and I am so happy to share with you that all that hard work paid off with me losing 2.6 kgs this week. Awesome!

Increasing the intensity of my workouts, helped me to lose 2.6 kgs in 1 week! Image source: www.freedigitalphotos.net by Stuart Miles


I was stoked yesterday afternoon when another mum from my daughter's pre-school said that she had noticed I had been losing weight! What a compliment and motivation to keep up the momentum!

So, last week I promised I would share my workout results with you, and thought it might be a good time to share the type of training that I have been doing as well. Please note, all the workouts listed below are online videos designed and distributed exclusively for members of Michelle Bridges 12WBT. Michelle is currently signing up pre-season for the next Round. Click here for more information.

Isn't it interesting to see that by slightly increasing the intensity, what a difference it can make!

In other news this week, I also treated myself to a new pair of workout runners and man - what a difference! I was using 5 year old netball shoes and getting severe pain down the little toe sides of both my feet. I didn't realise how heavy my old shoes were until I did a couple of the above workouts with my new shoes. If you are planning to start your own health and fitness journey, I recommend you make sure your shoes fit correctly and have the right support for the exercise you are doing!

Coming up this week, I am participating in the Mother's Day classic, which is a 4km walk or run. It will be interesting to see how my fitness has improved since I completed the 5km Pink Fun Run in 44 minutes Week 1 - wish me luck!
