I really need to update more.
I have been gyming more so thats a good thing. I have been doing lots of Pilates and Zumba and Killer Abs.
Pilates is good, my core is definitely stronger than its been in a long long time. I also like that its quite and calm, Ingred from Balfour Park is an awesome instructor.
Zumba is fun! Especially since I do it with my mommy on a Sunday morning. Its a great motivation to get out of bed knowing that I get to share some fun quality time with my mom. The cup of coffee together afterwards is also great
Killer Abs is, well, killer! Its definitely a help having someone standing over me pushing me to keep going. Those are the most hectic 25 minutes of gym ever. I never sweat quite as much as I do during a Killer Abs class.
Last night I did a baseline fitness test, I need to keep training to improve on my times but these are my results from last night:
- 3km run – 20m16s
- Pull ups – 1
- Sit ups (1 minute) – 28
- Push ups (1 minute) – 13
- 400m sprint – 1m57s
Any advice on what to do to better those stats would be greatly appreciated!

- Weight: 51 kg (down 1.2 kg from last measurements)
