UFC Fit- Week 1

So this week, I started out UFC Fit. Let me tell you, this is not for the faint hearted.

It took a lot of dedication, time and perspiration, but i got there in the end, and if i could survive week one, i can do this. In the events leading up to starting UFC Fit, i had gained weight through excessive eating of bad food, and lack of exercise. Week 2 i have decided, that i will be also doing some pilates/yoga, on top of UFC as i want to be healthy and happy! And get that Triangl bikini for myself, which i promised that once i lost some weight and got down to my goal weight, i would reward myself with it !

I was first introduced to UFC through a friend, and he had lost a fair bit of weight, so i just thought i would give it a crack. I have always wanted to get into UFC, MMA and Capoeira, but through lifes struggles i haven't been able to full fill those dreams. I will go into depths of this later, but to give you some idea, I had to have knee surgery, which was not minor at all. It involved re-aligning the bone in my leg to re-align my knee cap. I had my right knee done first, and left is due to be done next year sometime. It's put a real strain on me, as i cannot walk around easily, nor kneel.

So with this in mind, i didn't want to invest a lot of money into joining a gym, and when this was introduced to me, i thought, well it's cheap, and if it doesn't work then oh well. As well as this, i have fine tuned my diet, yeah every now and then i will indulge and have a glass of wine. This will seriously be very rare for me.

My diet used to be horrific,bad foods, alcohol, and i used to smoke. Now, I have quit smoking, ceased almost all drinking, and there are no bad foods in sight.

Week one of UFC was a great challenge, my knees did suffer a little, as there is a lot of squatting involved, but if i found that there was a move that was not possible for me, i altered it to suit me. I have now bought some knee grip, so that way when i am working out my left knee won't pop out of place (yes it is literally that bad). With week one down, I am seeing myself in the mirror as being less bloated, and generally less pudgy.

I feel as though it was a change that needed to happen- i was so run down, exhausted and just felt really crap. But now, i find myself feeling motivated, energetic and full of life!

I will be reviewing this every week, and filling you in on all the details of my progress. Wish me luck!

Bring on week two!
