Well, for those of you who might have followed me earlier this thread is a continuation of my 90-Day-Challenge
First let me tell you how all of that ended. Well, it didn't end perfectly. It turned out that during the entire 90 days I had been eating way under the calorie count that I should have been hitting, so after I decided to do the so called 'metabolism reset' (eating at my supposedly maintenance calorie count) I gained back all that I had previously lost - not a big surprise. I was expecting it, so I didn't freak out completely. Thankfully once I hit my starting weight I stopped gaining, so it might mean that my metabolism isn't completely ruined.
For those of you who do wish to know more about calories and working out, please before you commit to something look into the terms of TDEE, BMR, calorie deficit and maybe even metabolism reset if it turns out that you've eaten way less than you should have. Better late then never, but trust me it's not fun to postpone because of a reset...
Anyways. During that reset I didn't workout - things got crazy at work, I was promoted to a multiple product manager, thus leading a miny army of 10 developers, working on our most major products for our mother company and our biggest client >.>' Got to travel a bit to Germany, went on a vacation to Turkey, then we had an awesome summit/team-building at work for a full week and then I was crazy busy
The team building went great - the hottie that I was crushing over in the beginning of the previous blog was there, still hot as hell, and he might be moving to Bulgaria!! Woop! But he has a girlfriend >.> *coughs* anyways~
Things are starting to get normal at work. I'm already in the loop of everything, I think I'm handling it quite alright, despite sometimes stressing like nuts over some things. And now that I feel much more comfortable in my new position I believe is the time to get back into working out, eating in a deficit and trying to lose weight and gain a healthy life.
However, this time it's not just about some period of time, but I'm aiming for the rest of my life. This time around I'm way more knowledgeable about calories, eating properly, training, staying healthy and avoiding injuries, and I do think with my stubbornness I do have a chance of making it through. The home workout DVDs that I've picked up to go with is... Insanity
by BeachBody... Yep, I'm slightly insane to go with it as it's a really really really highly intense, but I think I need something hardcore to challenge me in order to make it. I did survive the first workout yesterday and after a full hour of biking, so I think I have still got a bit of my earlier fitness endurance. We'll see about that.
I'm once again starting at the kilograms from before, so I once again want to lose 10-13 of those not-so-lil bastards. And I've once again taken like 10 measurement points to follow. I'm really hyped about it. Not only because people have got crazy results with Insanity, but because I want to see whether I can make it.
So, welcome to my new blog where you will see me challenge myself for a better healthy life for the rest of my life <3
