Week 4 Weigh-in & Fitness Test

We are a third of the way through the 12 Week Body Transformation and I am LOVING my body right now! The last few days I have been shocked at the image looking back at me in the mirror! It's amazing what a few kilos disappearing can do! I have never been this slim in my life and I can't wait to get to my goal weight! Only 4.3kg to go!

This morning was a busy one with weigh-in, measurements, photos and the rest of my fitness test (followed by a full workout).

Weight: 71.3kg (-1.9kg!) 
Total loss since pre-season 12WBT: 6kg
Total loss since November 2010: 12.9kg (15.3% loss)

I've also lost 7cm in the last 4 weeks and 37cm since the beginning of pre-season! There aren't too many more cm's to lose!

Fitness Test Results:
1km speed test - 5min 00sec (+29 seconds)
Wall sit duration - 6min 37sec (+3min 2sec)
Sit-ups - Stage 5 (=)
Push-ups in 1 minute - 46 (knees); 23 (toes) (+2)
Flexibility +10cm (+3cm)
Resting HR: 48bpm

I have improved in all areas except for the sit-ups (already at the maximum level) and the 1km speed test. For some reason I have been really struggling with running lately. I'm not sure what it is! I feel exhausted after 500m and I just can't get myself going! I really pushed myself this morning in the 1km sprint and I know I was working hard (my HR went to 229!!!) but my time just didn't reflect how hard I was working. I wonder if my body is just really fatigued or whether my nutrition is off. It could be that I am just mentally exhausted from all the study I have been doing. Either way, I can't say that I'm not disappointed by my time, but over all I am really happy with the improvements.

Calories burned: 560 (morning workout) + 260 (light evening swim) = 810
