Here is my very first challenge: Lose 5 pounds and lower body fat content by 2-3%. Deadline: February 15th
Not much of a challenge, right? Well, I have to start somewhere. I’m aiming very low because I want to successfully complete my first task. It’s much easier to accomplish a few smaller goals than shoot right away for impossible! My real goal, however, is to be disciplined! Yes, Disciplined! I want to stay motivated, work out at least 5 times a week, eat right and write short reports. I hope this will inspire others to jump on board with me.
Workout for today: Warm up and stretch. Walk fast for 4 minutes and run for 1 minute. Repeat that 6 times. First 2 running rounds should be easy but 3rd, 4th and 5th I sprinted. Cool down for another 5 minutes. Very mild Sunday workout – just enough to get me started. Running intervals are short (just 1 min) because I ran uphill on a trail. Below is a picture from a top of Beacon Hill in Griffith Park, the place where my trail ended.
