monsterhunter Posted September 18, 2018 Report Share Posted September 18, 2018 Hi all! A bit late to join this challenge, being that it’s Monday night and all, but I’m feeling good! To get started, I’m Kellye and 23 years old. I was on Nerd Fitness years and years ago. And like all of life, I fell out of it. Well, I’m back again and getting serious. By day, I’m a freelance writer/editor. Also by day, I’m a major non-mover. I don’t move hardly at all, and that’s part of the problem. I’ve gained 50 pounds since graduating college and it’s not a good look. So that brings us to my main goal: lose weight. I’ve got some other goals in mind, but my main one for the next few months/year is to lose weight and get to a better body fat percentage so I can start tackling more in fitness and in life. Goal 1: Movement My main focus for this challenge will be moving. I want to go on walks and use my stationary bike most of the week. I’ll start small, challenging myself to walk/ride 2-3 times this week for at least 20 minutes. During the second week, I’d like to ride 3-4 times. Week three? You guessed it: 4-5 times. And by week four, I’d really love to be going 5-6 times a week for at least 20 minutes. It’s not the amount of time that matters right now, though, just getting up and moving. Goal 2: Nutrition My secondary fitness challenge will be going paleo/primal. I’m a decently good eater every day but Sunday, but I’d like to cut non-primal things out and eat more veggies. A salad every other day (then every day) is my goal. As far as cutting things, no stuff that has extra sugars/bad oils/etc. I know how the diet goes, and I’m ready to sit down for meat and veggies for the next few weeks. Goal 3: Take a break! My life goal will be to take a break from writing. It’s my hobby and my livelihood, but it’s killing my hand. Once a week, I want to step back from the creative process and have a day off. I think Sunday will be the best day since I have d&d and don’t need to take many notes, so that’s already a few hours dedicated to not writing. As much as I love it, I have some major nerve pain in my primary hand, and it’s really debilitating a lot of the time. So these are my goals! They’re trackable, and I’ll make up a spreadsheet tomorrow to get started. I’m really excited to be here! Good luck to everyone! 1 Quote Link to comment
