  1. So busy, as usual!!! So, let me see... today is Tuesday, right? Yesterday I walked a mile and did my weight workout. I have decided to try giving up meat for a while to see if I feel better, so I am struggling getting all my protein in. Am still counting calories, practiced lettering today and cleaned house yesterday! Tomorrow starts 5 days of working on my feet for HOURS each day, then next Monday I am going out of town for 2 days to see family. Oh, and I am almost to level 12 on Pokemon Go! #LoseBodyFat: - I will update this at the end of the week and we shall see what happens lol #FitGirl: - one workout so far, but am still going to workout tonight! #CountCalories: - yep #ArtsyFartsy: - we are on one day this week! #DropInReady: - I will keep this at 4 hearts unless my house becomes a pit that I would be embarrassed to have people over to! lol
  2. Yes!!!!! I love this challenge!!!! I'm loving Pokemon Go! I'm at level 9 and we actually saw a Pikachu last night but never could get close enough!! You're gonna do great!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm doing ChaLEAN Extreme. I love Chalene Johnson and the first workout was amazing!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I know this challenge doesn't officially start until next week, but just wanted to say I started working out again today! I am doing a weight training program and I already am loving it! I LOATHE cardio... so weights it is! I will add in walking as well, but I will not be doing cardio workouts because they make me want to die! lol
  5. Thanks guys! I am VERY frustrated with my endo. I only saw her for like 10 minutes and I felt she was very dismissive... I don't think I will be going back. The truth of the situation is I need to do SOMETHING to lose the weight, but 1200 calories along with working out 60 minutes a day seems like setting myself up for starvation and failure. As for my BF% goal, it's ok, it's not going to discourage me... I like seeing the numbers change on the scale, I like seeing what changes depending on what I put into my body. I have always had a weight loss goal via pounds lost, but decided that BF% might be a better way to go.
  6. Challenge 18: I'll Save Myself MAIN QUEST: Lose Weight Feel Great! To hit my goal range of 125-135 and do it in a healthy way! Goals (diet and fitness related) that will help me achieve Main Quest: I feel like I just haven't made much progress at all the last 17 challenges. I keep losing and gaining the same 10 pounds lately... Not really sure how to fix this, but I just keep trying! Back story: All through high school I struggled to GAIN weight. I weighed 110 pounds all through high school. I am 5'2", so that's a "healthy" weight, but I really was way too thin and didn't have any muscle. Then I started having babies and started gaining weight. My heaviest was 219. I am at 207 now. I have managed over the years to diet myself down to 165 at the lowest, but it was a very unhealthy diet (around 500 calories a day) and I started losing my hair, so I decided I would rather be fat and have hair than be thin with no hair lol My tracking will be different this challenge. I am trying something new... I am using Zelda hearts this challenge. I thought it might be fun to change it up a little bit. I will be figuring it out as I go along... I will do weekly hearts and then average them out at the end, I guess. I will start at full hearts and change them at the end of each week! I will also have health pots that I can earn by doing more than 4 workouts in a week and can use to get myself out of a sticky situation if I need to. Seriously guys... I almost didn't do a challenge this time. I cannot get my shit together to save my life!!! But here's the thing... I NEED TO SAVE MY LIFE! I need to lose some of this weight. I need to feel better. I did have an appointment with an endocrinologist who basically did nothing, didn't even do labs, she changed my meds and said that one of my meds is the reason I have heart problems now... great, since I told my original doctor that I knew he was putting me on too much of that med and he basically shushed me. My endo then said because of my height, the only way I will lose weight is if I eat 1200 or less calories per day and workout for at least 60 minutes every day. I am not sure how one survives on 1200 calories per day especially when working out. When I told her I was too exhausted to workout 60 minutes a day she said do it anyway and I will stop being tired. WTF? Anyway, I am here. I will try to keep up. 1. #LoseBodyFat - I am changing things up a bit. I want to lose 4% body fat this challenge. I have researched and I THINK it's possible?? lol Current body fat percentage according to my new fancy-schmancy scale = 54.4% A: 50.4% - - 1 CON, 2 STR B: 51.4% - - 1 CON, 1.5 STR C: 52.4% - - 1 CON, 1 STR D: 53.4% - - 0.5 CON, 0.5 STR F: >54.4% - - 0 CON, 0 STR Ability to earn 1 CON, 2 STR = perfect week! On task = lose 1% per week. = lose 0.75% for the week = lose 0.5% for the week = lose 0.25% for the week = lose zero % for the week 2. #FitGirl - Workout 4 days a week. This will include weights, walking, and whatever else I decide... If I get over 10,000 steps in a day, I am counting that as a workout. A: 14-16 workouts - - 2 STA, 2 STR, 1 DEX B: 11-13 workouts - - 1.5 STA, 1.5 STR, 1 DEX C: 8-10 workouts - - 1 STA, 1 STR, 0.5 DEX D: 5-7 workouts - - 0.5 STA, 0.5 STR, 0 DEX F: <5 workouts - - 0 STA, 0 STR, 0 DEX Ability to earn 2 STA, 2 STR, 1 DEX points. = perfect week! 4 workouts! = 3 workouts for the week = 2 workouts for the week = 1 workout for the week = no workouts for the week 3. #CountingCalories - I have started counting calories again. It's working so I am sticking with it. I plan to eventually count macros too.
