Sponsored by: LeanStop.com

Its been 1 week since I started my journey to fitness and so far here are some of the results…

Hips : 89.5 cm

Thighs : L : 52 cm           R : 53 cm

Arms :  L : 26.25 cm       R : 25.75 cm

It’s amazing to see results like these after 1 week. Just goes to show how big an impact diet and exercise has on one’s own body and overall health.

I’ve learned a lot this week about discipline when it comes to food (rice & noodles especially) & waking up every morning to work out which is not easy. I also learned I cannot do a pull-up to save my life… which is why my coach has me doing negative chin-ups that will strengthen my arms so that one day I will eventually be able to do a “real” pull up.

A negative chin-up is where you jump up and slowly lower yourself, focusing your strength & control on the negative/decline. If you can’t do a pull-up or even a chin up, this is a good place to start.

Before I go, here’s another snapshot of a low calorie, highly nutritious and very delicious meal.

Can you believe this meal is only 394 calories!? OMGoodness… Here’s the breakdown:

100g Roast Chicken = 239 calories

60g Mashed Pumpkin & Carrots = 75 calories

60g Garlic Beans & Carrots = 30 calories

50g of Side Salad with Garlic Ceasar Dressing = 50 calories

Well that’s it for now. If you missed the beginning of this journey you can read about part 1 here and part 2 here. Until then, stay tuned for more Apple Cider’s Journey to Fitness!
