Phoenix is probably my favorite character, so Imma channel her this round. Strength 2 NFA workouts + warmup/cooldown per week. I am still level 1, but I am going to bump up the difficulty of a few of the exercises as I can for this challenge. At 2 weeks, I'm going to try to beat General DOMS again. Total 8pts Cardio/Toning 2 classes per week - preferably 1 Zumba and 1 Pound, however that will depend on babysitter availability. I love having an excuse to get out of the house and get moving doing someting *other* than go for a walk. Total 8pts PT 3 PT leg exercises per week - not on class days. The knee I injured and ultimately needed surgery is not happy with my newfound movement. I need to get back into the habit of doing my band exercises to strengthen the small muscles around my knees so I don't reinjure myself. That would be bad. Total 12pts Food I am adding a goal of 1 serving of fruit per day with a minimum of 5 per week. Total 20-28pts Random Bonuses Since the Cardio and PT aspects focus so much on my lower body, I'm going to give myself bonus points for any upper body workouts I do that aren't a part of the NFA ones. This may include a random set of doorway rows, stair push-ups, baby presses or curls, or anything else that's just a standalone arm exercise. Not more than 1pt per day None of the at-home exercises (NFA, PT) take a super long period of time, so I just need to willpower myself to take care of it when baby naps those days. Everything will be logged in my journal (new journal coming soon because I wanted to give the dot-layouts a try for ease with design and trackers and whatnot, so pictures forthcoming!)
Hello fellow Rebels! I'm not all that new to the forums or the site, but it has been a LONG time since I've been on here. So long that I actually forgot my old login name and password! Ah well, this the start of a new beginning for me. I'm Jessie, but I've gotten used to being called Jessica as well. I'm from Detroit, MI and the weather here in general sucks! (I mean, seriously, we bought a pool a few years ago and we've only been able to use it a few times, augh!) Based off my user name I am a bit of an artist, but it's nothing spectacular, I just draw whatever I feel like drawing, even if it looks like crap. Crocheting is a new hobby I've slowly gotten into thanks to my mom. (I'm working on a blanket for my friend, but it's taking so long.) And I am, like a good chunk of people, severely addicted to the internet. There was a time last year that I weighed roughly around 350 give or take. And as of right now I'm 393.3, and I'm only 5'3". I started school last year to become a Dialysis Patient Care Technician because I couldn't find a job and I was sick of doing nothing with my life. So during the school year I either did some or no exercising at all, so I slowly gained weight. Around the end of June this year I started my externship at a hospital, which was great because I was on my feet a lot, the only thing is that we had a low census. But once the middle of August came, my externship ended, and I didn't have to worry about school anymore. So what did I do? Sat at the computer, played video games, read some books, that's about it. I knew my weight was high because I was around 380-ish in early June when I was rushing to get my shots and paperwork for externship, but I didn't really worry too much about it. But seeing that I was in the 390-range and was getting VERY close to 400lbs was a huge wake-up call! I'll admit, I still have bad habits that are going to take a while to break Staying up late into the 3-4AM range is one of them (only possible because I can't get a job right now because I'm living with my folks and we're all relying on one vehicle thanks to the massive flood in August). Also sitting at the computer/TV most of the day and NOT getting anything done (except for exercise now) is another bad one. This will take some time to change, but I know deep down I will get it under control! I'm just thankful that I've managed to get myself a little walking routine going on to get myself into working out! Thank you for reading my story. I hope to gain new friends and get my life back on track!
