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 14 challenges. I keep losing and gaining the same 10 pounds lately... Not really sure how to fix this, but I just keep trying! I haven't written my back story in a long time, so here is a refresher. 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 205 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 to thin with no hair lol So, I am just trying to find something that works... I am also hypothyroid. I am on meds that I honestly forget to take half the time. I need to get better at that. So, I have been steadily cleaning up my diet. I like Paleo, but I also like cheese and beans... I am playing around with the Wild Diet and intermittent fasting and bulletproof coffee and just eating much less processed junk and more whole foods. I am still trying to work out 6 days a week! I was planning to have my home gym set up by now, but the IRS and the Healthcare Marketplace totally screwed us, so we are STILL waiting on our tax refund, which we filed on Jan 28th! UGH! Should be a couple more weeks, but might be longer, and will probably be a paper check instead of direct deposited, which is just inconvenient! Anyway, was planning on doing the Master's Hammer & Chisel, but really want my gym set up before we start that, so on the 1st I am ordering 22 Minute Hard Corps, which is an 8 week program. Plus, I will be doing CIZE with it... not the entire workout, but just the dance at the end of each workout 3 times. So, that's about 4 minutes added onto the 22 minutes, so it should be fine!! In case you have no clue what these programs are, here are videos! http://beachbodycoach.com/esuite/home/ScoutSays?bctid=4544228607001 http://beachbodycoach.com/esuite/home/ScoutSays?bctid=4343082868001 1. #CleanEating - Taking an 80/20 approach to eating clean and healthy and whole foods and just enjoying my meals!
