6 weeks ago I signed up to start my transformation with the IsaBody Challenge (again). I have had a great start, but this time I’ve a step further and a few days ago Xscan Body Scan done to see where I was at, but also to compare to when I finish in 10 weeks.
Thanks to Tony from xcellpt.com.au for his great special price on the scan.
There is a heap of information on there, and the full sheet of explanations to go with it, but the important parts are:
I’m a little over weight @87.8kg, “ideal” is 79.5kg for my height. No surprise there.
That 87.8kg is made up of 68.8kg of Lean Body Mass and 19kg of Total Body Fat (should be 11.9-15.9)
My Percentage Body Fat is 21.6 (down from 24.5 on a cheaper set of scales during week 1) 10-20% is considered healthy.
This is where my big goal lies. Scales don’t tell the whole story. As I put on muscle, my weight will go up, but as I lose fat, my weight will go down, which is why I’m concentrating on Percentage Body Fat. My goal for this challenge is 15% with BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) of <10%
Another interesting stat is Visceral Fat Level (Fat around my organs) which is at level 11 with 1-9 considered healthy. Visceral Fat Area is 106cm², and should be 50-100cm².
My Age Match to body puts me at 43, which is my age, so it’s go to know my body is acting it’s age. 🙂
The scan was a wonderful learning experience, I can’t wait to post my final transformation results.
After completing the Run Melbourne 10Km in July, I set some new goals, including running the Sandy Point 10Km in under 1 hour.
Last Sunday I achieved that goal, with a finish time of 59:30.5!
I’m so loving the new me I’m creating.
I was told by one of my trainers the other day that some work on my running technique we can shave another 5 minutes off that time, and I believe it. At the moment I’m just putting one foot in front of the other, so it’s time to develop some technique to get things moving better and at the same time reduce the already short recovery time as well as the chance for injury.
My next goal is to get my Parkrun time down under 25 minutes for 5Km. My PB at the moment is 27:12, and that nearly killed me (the headache took 3 days to go away completely).
