It Has Begun! Round 2 2013 Is Underway

DAY 1 is here!
That’s right, Round 2 2013 has begun today!

Over the course of Friday and Saturday I completed my Fitness Test and also my Measurements.
Below are the results I got:

Week 1 12wbt Measurements & Fitness

It’s a bit blurry I know!
My measurements from left to right are for my chest, waist, hips, right thigh and right arm (in cms).
The fitness test left to right begins with push ups on my toes, the box is empty because I still find it difficult to execute these! I definitely need to work on my upper body strength!
It then goes to push ups on my knees, the sit & reach test (flexibility), 3km bike ride time trial, wall sit and then ab strength (planking).
Both my wall sit and plank are pretty terrible times but it gives me something to improve which is a plus! Not to mention I had my dog in my face the whole time, he likes to join in!
My starting weight, which was taken on Saturday, for this round is 80.6kg it’s a little up probably because it was the weekend but that’s ok, again it’s something I intend to make smaller!

 I was a busy bee on the weekend!
not only did I do my fitness test and measurements, I spent some time grocery shopping and also cooking up some food for the first week. I will no doubt be back in the kitcken through the week though!
I went through the recipes on the 12WBT index and came across a “Sweet Potato Stew”  I was so excited to see some lovely new recipes! Yay! So I had to make it. The smell of all of the spices together was absolutely amazing! It reminded me of Mexican cooking and well we all know I love Mexican food!

I then decided to cook up a batch of “Banana Bread” except I decided to make them into muffins instead of a loaf. At least as muffins I can control my portions better!
I’ve made this before and I just love the flavour. its the perfect snack!

If you’re doing this round let me know how your first day has started. Did you prepare any meals over the weekend?
How are you feeling about Day 1 of the Round?

  1. Hi Amydeville, I’m quietly following your blog. I haven’t signed up for this round but feel confident doing it on my own. I weighed in at 81.8kg so not to far behind you. Good luck with this round and I look forward to all your updates. We can do this!!!

    • Hi Barb! 🙂
      Aw thank you for following, even if it is just quietly I still appreciate it so much!
      That’s great that you’ve gotten to the point where you can go through the “Round” by yourself though! 🙂 Are you still going to bellowing with the weekly weigh ins and fitness tests? I’d love to know how you travel over the next 12 weeks!
      Thank you so much and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on how I’m going!! We can BOTH do this!! 😀 x

  2. Oooh I haven’t seen the sweet potato recipe, must go grab that one. I do my banana bread in muffin pans too, much easier. I may have even got that hint from your blog. Good luck for the round! Go smash it!

    • I actually really enjoyed it Carol 🙂 the spices all really compliment each other, very tasty!
      How much easier is it doing it in muffin trays though? I find they cook quicker too which is great!
      Aw thank you!! I intend to get into this round and just smash it!! 🙂 x
