ha ha ha!
I belong to a gym here in Taipei called California Fitness.
My trainer told me about a cool contest today. Whoever loses the highest percentage of fat in 3 months splits NT$100,000 with their trainer! $1USD=$32 NT (roughly)...so that's about $1500USD!
I need this incentive as I have consistently gained weight (fat!) since moving to Taipei!
eeks. I HAVE gained muscle weight TOO though...but still...gaining fat is very discouraging...especially since I DO work out (but not enough!).
My trainer said that the last person who won this contest lost 7kg in the 3 month time frame...so that's a good goal to shoot for.
They have a machine that calculates your body fat and lean muscle and how it's distributed. Oddly enough my upper body is stronger than my lower body!
It's good that they are calculating body fat only...I don't want to starve myself and lose lean body mass (which I did over the summer when I did HerbalLife for a spell).
I am psyched to have a GOAL now...but it's gonna be ROUGH.
I'll post BEFORE and AFTER pics at the END of the three months. NOT NOW!
I'm so hungry...hmmm...here we GO!!!
