  1. Week 1 update: Not a total fail, I did 2/3 workouts, and cut out my skirt pattern. My husband was away for work, kiddo got sick, and I am beat!!! (My daughter is a night owl and won't go to sleep until 11pm, but my son gets up most days at 5am!! DH and I usually switch off who gets up early but he's been away... gah!) Tonight though, he's back, so I really hope to get a night's sleep :-) And I'm back to around 92.5lbs, which is where I usually hover. I've been researching a bit about ectomorph body shapes, and what foods to focus on to gain. Good carbs and protein mostl
  2. So excited to be starting the second challenge of 2018! I crushed 2/4 of my goals for the last challenge, and am raring to up my game this time. From the last challenge I learned that one main goal works best, and then a couple little goals to round it out. Main goal: Eat more food!! Aiming for 1700-2000 calories/day. Goal is to weigh a steady 95 lbs at the end of this challenge. Gulp! Starting weight: 93.5lbs. I need to pre-plan my food and make sure I eat throughout the day. 6/7 small meals or snacks. I think a good idea would be to plan out
  3. Thank you so much!! Hubby is such a good sport, lol. Excited for the next challenge :-) See you there!
  4. Just wanted to wrap up this challenge. Big win was doing the BBWW 3x/week. I think, in total, I only missed 3 workouts, which is awesome! I still am only doing 1 circuit, but I'm feeling that I could ramp it up to 2 pretty soon :-) Food was less successful, but It's going to be the focus of my next challenge instead. I finished my dress in time, and was whisked off to the charity gala last weekend. We had a lovely time, and I'm thrilled with how my dress turned out! Thanks for all the encouragement and help! See you at the next challenge!!!
  5. Hehehe :-) No worries! There is so much out there about losing weight, I know I am definitely in the minority, needing to gain weight! I am all done nursing my kiddos, thank goodness-(not that it's a bad thing, I think nursing kids for as long as you can, if you can, is the most important thing we can do for their early years health!) they extended breastfed until they were each 4, when they naturally stopped. All in, I breastfed for 7 years straight - and that was definitely a factor in how low my weight got. Before kids I was 98lbs. I'm a sahm, but I'm out and about
  6. Working away on my dress!
  7. I'd like to do a historic/vintage homemaking podcast. It'll have #vintage 'hacks' from old manuals, funny and gross recipes from old cookbooks, chat about bringing old methods to modern living etc. I just have to make it a priority (and my yt) and DO it!! I have been procrastinating on it for years- gah! As for food intake- well.. I weigh about 92/93 lbs. I know I need to increase my caloric intake if I want to reach that magical 100lbs, and I am not a huge eater- so little snacks, more often, is better. However, I get sidetracked or busy and just plain forget to eat. Or I can't be
  8. Yep! Walking across England (in the north, narrow part!) is totally a thing. There are paths, nice places to stay every night, and some really varied country side to walk through. It's been a definite bucket list goal!
  9. Update time! 1. Completed 2 workouts last week, and so far just one this week. My knee has been giving me trouble (it doesn't like squats and lunges!) so I rested it, and it's doing better today. I walked a ton yesterday though, so I'm counting that as a bonus! I find the farther I walk, the more surprised I am at how far I can walk. Things that seemed way too far to walk to, seem a lot more attainable. One of my long term goals (within 5 years) is to walk across England, so upping my walking game is awesome! 2. Still struggling with food but trying to add little things
  10. End of Week 2 update- Super proud I did all my workouts! Everything else is less successful, but I'm trying!
  11. Tuesday night update- Work-outs are going well but they've finally hit my body, and I am zonked. Just totally exhausted physically. I don't get enough sleep - (I have one night owl kiddo and one early bird kiddo that pulls me out of bed at 5am) but I'm kind of used to it, but now with the extra exercising I'm really feeling it! I'm going to try and get to sleep early-ish tonight, I hope. Eventually I know exercising will give me more energy, but I hate feeling so weak right now :-( My other goal I'm already having trouble with is eating every meal plus snacks. It's just
  12. Yay! Thanks! I really want to sew more this year. I'm not a pro, but I really want the costumes so I plow through the best I can :-D So far, so good! I volunteer at a historic manor, so I wear my costumes at events and doing tours. Last year, I made a big 1867 dress and hoop. It was a hoot! I will post pics if I can figure it out (I am sooo not as computer literate as I should be!) The mayor's gala is a fancy fundraiser in our town and all the proceeds are going to the manor this year, so I thought, 'what the heck, I'll dress me and hubby up regency style an
  13. Back again and ready to crush my goals!! I want to be strong and have more energy this year- and crack that 100lb mark that has always seemed so out of reach. (I'm a slender 92lbs, and gaining weight is tough!!) So, let's make these goals easy and achievable! 1. BBWW 3/week, minimum 1 circuit with added back/posture exercises. First thing in the morning! (exercise) 2. Eat meals 3/day, plus two snacks. No skipping, or forgetting! Put alarm on phone if need be :-) Prep snacks/meal plan. (food) 3. Post 3 podcasts, and 4 videos to YT (career)
  14. Fourth Challenge!! Huzzah! It's my first time joining with the Assassins group (waves goodbye to the Rebels, good luck everyone over there!) and I’m super excited to get started on the next challenge. So.. here we go! 1. Continue upping the challenge with the BBWW. This time I will do 2 circuits 3x/week. I will also continue to add posture exercises at the end of each circuit. (Fitness) 2. Oil pull with coconut oil every morning while waiting for my tea to steep. Yay for healthy teeth and gums! (Self-care) 3. In bed, lights out by 11pm. I'm look
  15. Update! So, last challenge I did really well on everything but fitness, and this challenge I've done well on fitness but abysmal on all the others, lol! Last week, and this week I've done two bbww each week. I only managed one circuit but it's already getting easier. This coming week I'm going attempt 2 circuits :-) I'm getting better at going to sleep earlier- but it's a work-in-progress. I haven't managed to start Konmari yet, but hopefully tomorrow! As for swishing with coconut oil, I think I need to put a jar of it in the front
