Good Morning Folks,
Today I am going to write a bit a bout myself, I have previously written about the events leading up to my decision to join the police force, but today I feel it necessary to tell you the stats of which I started at and where I am at now.
Me, Myself and I, started this journey weighing just over 62kg, I am 152cm short and I was feeling tired a lot and I couldn’t be bothered with wanting to do general activities. I have never been majorly over weight but enough to feel sluggish and heavy. I knew when I made the decision to join the police it would mean a big change if it meant achieving the 6.10 beep test score (Also, does anybody know if on the day of the fitness examination do they stop you at the 6.10 or keep you going until you conk out?). I had previously been fit, at one stage I applied for the ADF (about three years ago) I passed everything except the Asthma test which I failed by 2%, I tried for a year to re do that test on numerous puffers that I was prescribed, until one brought on a sort of asthma attack, so it scared me a little and I stopped trying. It was almost a blessing because I enrolled in an Advanced Diploma of Hospitality which pushed me to my limits, it originally was a three year course which has been condensed down to a year and a half, I was doing 16 subjects a semester and it was one of the hardest studies I have ever undertaken. I am much better of for it though it completely re opened my brain up :P.
I currently am 58kg, still 152cm short but I don’t think that will change any time soon, I’m turning 23 this year, and now when I wake up in the morning I generally have more energy and have a new found confidence in the future. I know that if i stick to what I am doing it will get even better I just wish It would happen faster, but in reality It will take time. I believe someone once said Patience is a virtue, I am still learning this.
I hope everyone has a great day! I’ve been thinking of doing another run today, however i wanted to run outside instead of in the gym, but there is severe weather warnings… still contemplating it though. Ill see how i go.
Goodbye for now. 🙂
