F45 8 Week Challenge: Week 1, Done

If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you would know that I have taken up the F45 8 Week Challenge. I was thinking I haven’t been active on the blog for close to a year, so it should be fine if I don’t blog. But then, I remembered – the reason I started this blog was because I could write basically anything I wanted, not only my food adventures.

So, I welcome you all to my 8-week journey.

I’m not sure what I’ll be writing about, but perhaps just an online journal, back to the basics of how I’m feeling through the whole process.

Monday. Weigh-in day, as The Biggest Loser would call it. But it was more so, just a body scan to see my fat percentage and all the nitty and gritty inside information we seem to forget about.

Nervous as hell, I stepped on the scales – it wasn’t as bad as I expected, but of course there is plenty of kilos for improvement. But the next step was surely one to scare me most, the photos (Yes, they’re not going to be posted at all). I didn’t even have the courage to look at them until the next day, and I did only because I was forced to. But it is a good thing, cause now I know whenever I feel slack and don’t want to go to train, I’ll have this to tell myself: look at those photos and think again.

Thus far, every day training has been amazing. I have previously participated in F45 classes, so I’ve always enjoyed their circuit training. But the pain, the morning after the first day – I honestly felt like someone had used me as a punching bag.

Then there is food, my love for food is really being tested. Do I love food more or do I love myself more? Well, my usual answer would be:

Cassie, you love yourself so feed yourself what you love.

But no, that’s just taking the easy way out and making myself feel better for giving in. I guess, this is also a lesson for the power of the mind.

I apologise for the lack of photos in this post, as I realised I wanted to document this half way through the week. I’ll attempt for more imagery next week forward.

Until next week, adios~
