Mander's Motivated (again, for real this time)
mander110 posted a topic in AdventurersHello Rebels! (& Amira), Iâ€™m here as a newb and determined to give this my all. My best friend was talking about this site she found where you act as if you were a character in a real life video game and training to level up your stats like in an RPG. Iâ€™m a huge Zelda fan. In fact, if I said I loved Link, it might be an understatement. I wear a gold Triforce necklace every day of my life, my phone case is Link sitting in a pocket with a Triforce on it and I carry around a Kingdom of Hyrule bag as my purse. When she told me about all the references to Zelda on the site, I just had to give it a look. And let me tell you, Iâ€™m glad I did. This is my first challenge, obviously. Iâ€™ve been slowly getting my stuff together recently (â€¦again) because I realized that Iâ€™ve put on 26 pounds since moving in with my boyfriend in October. Iâ€™ve always been a bigger girl, and Iâ€™ve been â€œtryingâ€ to reach my goal weight since I was 16. Iâ€™ve done okay up until this point. I used to be 218lbs, and Iâ€™m down to 177 right now. In October I was 153. Iâ€™m 5â€™5â€ and Iâ€™ve got a pretty average build, and Iâ€™ve always hid my weight well. Even now, people think Iâ€™m 150 and Iâ€™m like HAAAAAA, I wish. The last time I lost weight (June- October 2013) I did it by eating only lean cuisines and working out with Jillian Michaels and her 30-day shred, this time I plan to do it with homemade super-food breakfast smoothies, fresh â€“ never frozen- meals, working out, and a lot of water. Iâ€™m here as a heroine on a quest and a supporter of my people. I wonâ€™t and canâ€™t fail [myself] this time. More about my story --h-e-r-e--> http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/user/31030-mander110/ MAIN QUEST To get damn sexy and not have to refer to my calorie counter to see how much Iâ€™m still allowed to eat versus feeling full and knowing I donâ€™t need to count calories to maintain or lose weight. I want to love working out and feeling like Iâ€™m living a healthy lifestyle while looking damn good doing it. GOALS 1) Work out 3x a week or 3hrs a week A: Work out Tuesday, Thursday, & Sunday B: Work out Tuesday & Thursday (1.5 hours each) C: Work out Tuesday & Thursday (1 hour each) Iâ€™ve been going to the local CC to walk their track and jog up their stadium stairs every Tuesday and Thursday with a friend of mine. On the first day I did 4 sets and was tapped out. I saw people doing 10 sets of these stadiums and I was in complete denial that I would ever be able to do more than 5. Yesterday, the start of my 3rd week going (5th workout) I was able to accomplish 8 sets of stairs. Thereâ€™s 84 steps and halfway up the steps get bigger. I plan to up my set every other time I go, unless I can honestly feel like I can push myself enough to up my reps every time. Iâ€™m excited to reach 10 sets, Iâ€™ll totally feel like Iâ€™m making progress (not that I donâ€™t feel that way already) but itâ€™s something that is a bit of a milestone for me, I was so shocked when I saw people doing them on day 1â€¦ Iâ€™ll get there. I do a half mile on the track then 4 sets of stairs and then briskly walk track for half a mile and then stairs again. In between stair sets I try to stretch or do something to keep my heart pumping â€“ jumping jacks, crunches, wall push-ups or leg lifts. I also want to start doing the BBWW that was given to us on NF because I think it would totally whoop my ass into shape. Iâ€™ll start that tomorrow before my CC workout. 2) Drink Mas Agua A: Drink 72oz all 42 days B: Drink 72oz for at least 35 days C: Drink 54oz all 42 days D: Drink 54oz for at least 35 days F: Drink 33oz all 42 days Iâ€™m a Massage Therapist (well, a CA State Certified Massage Practitioner) and with the amount of energy I use giving massages and releasing my clients tension, I should really be drinking more water. I also want to drink more water because I know how much it curbs your appetite, most of the time I do couch eating is because Iâ€™m bored and want to taste something, not because Iâ€™m hungry. I was reading something, and it was actually probably on NF somewhere, that bored eating happens when youâ€™re actually thirsty, so Iâ€™m making it my side quest to drink more high quality (or regular quality) H2O! 3) Eat better. A: Paleo B: Home cooked every day, mostly vegetables, no bread C: Home cooked every day, smaller portions no bread D: Home cooked every day with salad side LIFE QUEST Become an advanced DT/Sports/Therapeutic Bodyworker who is healthy and plays the role of a model therapist. I want my clients to take what I say seriously and feel confident that I know what Iâ€™m talking about when I recommend certain stretches/habits because I look fit and healthy. Nobody wants to take advice from a fat trainer â€“ right? Same concept. I need to reach my goal weight because itâ€™s something that Iâ€™ve been on-again-off-again working at for 7 years. Thatâ€™s long enough. Now is the time. MOTIVATION My dresses are collecting dust in the closet because they're too snug Looking good GREAT in less clothing or & no clothing Finally accomplish the mission I set out to do 7 years ago I want to turn myself on when I look in the mirror Can't let my best friends get sexy without me And let's be honest, I wanna look damn sexy for my boyfriend current weight: 177.6 lbs goal weight: 137-145 lbs waist: 35" hips: 43.5" bust: 41"
