I've been getting fit!

Yes, you read that right. I have been working out again.

I hadn't for months, so needless to say, I looked like pudding. I decided to take on the 30 day challenge by Bodyrock.tv. And today was my last day of the 30 days. In the whole month, I have not missed ONE excerise, and have only slacked off in one. So I'm pretty proud.

To compare for you, the results of the fit test I did on day one, compared to the results of today:

Squat Jumps:
Day one: 31
Day thirty: 34

Push ups on knees:
Day one: 18
Day thirty: 25

Day one: 15
Day thirty: 15

High Knees:
Day one: 134
Day thirty: 160

Switch Lunges:
Day one: 42
Day thirty: 50

Tuck Jumps:
Day one: 30
Day thirty: 30

Tricep Dips:
Day one: 19
Day thirty: 40

Straight abs:
Day one: 13
Day thirty: 22

So the fit test is done by 50 seconds of excercise, and then 10 seconds rest. And that eight times. That is also why some of my scores are the same, it is impossible (for me) to do more of those in 50 sec, no matter if I'm tired or not.

As you can see in my results I've gained SO MUCH strenght in my arms. That's my biggest gain. I've not lost a single pound, but my body has become more toned, stronger and fitter. It's a little less jiggly.

And that all with just working out for 12 minutes only 5 days a week. For one month.


Yes, really.

O, and it's free.

I love you Bodyrock.


Ps. Yeah the pictures are somewhat sexual, but I guess I'd walk around in my panties too all day long if I had their body ;) LOL.



So.. remember this? Yes, my nails were a horror. For about nineteen years, sadly. You would think it's hard to get over a habit after nineteen years of doing it. And it is. But persistance pays off, always and everytime. Take a look at this;

I can be proud.


New years

So it has been a while, for sure. But i've been requested to update, so here we are, ha!

I've been busy, and happy. My dreams have come true, some of them at least. I have completed my intership, with a final mark 8! That's very good. I was very happy there, I fitted in, and realised this was my dream. I had fulfilled it. I was now a published magazine journalist! And now I know for sure that this is my dream, my passion, this is what I want.

Also I moved to Tilburg, which is basically my second home. I'd been cruising around the city for three years, before i finally moved there, so it was like coming home. I know the city, I know a lot of people there, and I'm pretty sure it'll be my hometown for the coming years.

I took up sports again! At the beginning of this new year. I had wanted to for months, but I bought a gymsubscription which started january 1st. I have invented squash, a ball game that I love. I'm quite good at it too. And now that I have lesser classes, I want to enroll in more sports. Pilates and yoga probably.

I started my own company: Milou van Roon Teksten. So that makes it easier to sell my magazine articles. I've also had to pleasure of writing my first bussiness text.

What more to tell? I'm about to start graduating, which is scary, but I'm looking forward to it with confidence. And tuesday me and Joris will be together for three years. Which is very nice ofcourse.

Take care!
