finding my niche

Recommended Posts

hi friends! so here I am, having fully finished my first official challenge. over the past few years I've gone every direction with my exercise & diet & I've finally decided to narrow it down to a niche. i'm a yoga instructor who loves practicing, did karate for a number of years as a child, & have always wanted to do dance, gymnastics, & ballet, but we didn't have the money so I did karate instead. now i'm 27, still don't have the money to take all the classes but I still just love to move my body in whatever way feels good at the time.

 

so here I am!!

 

as an unemployed stay at home mom (trust me im desperately searching for a job :frown-new:) I have a lot of time on my hands, but I spend a lot of it playing around on social media when I could be using it to a) level up my life b)use the social media to start my own business c) trying to eat more plant-based meals!

 

with all of that being said, I've got several goals for this challenge. I might be shooting waayyyy too high but as im studying to be a personal trainer (taking my test soon!) I also need to practice what I preach! 

 

heres what I got:

 

diet/exercise

  • no eating past 8 pm
  •  fast until 12 pm 1 day/week
  •  <2500 calories/day, <200 g carbs/day
  •  practice yin once/week
  •  practice Merge once/week 
  •  BONUS: handstand practice 10 mins 3x/week

 

level up my life

  •  up and out of bed by 630 AM each day
  •  meditate for 10 minutes in the morning
  •  BONUS: 3 blog posts/week

yesterday was a meh day...last challenge I stopped counting calories about halfway through cause 1) its exhausting, 2) its triggering. so then a new challenge starts and i'm all 'let me do it again' (imagine a cross eyed dog here with its tongue sticking out). with that being said, instead of calorie counting, i'm going to work on eating at least one serving of vegetables at every meal. i generally eat pretty healthy, but then binge about once/twice a week because i restrict so much during the week. also, i notice i like to eat sweet things for breakfast (imagine protein shake but with almond butter, coconut, salted caramel protein) & then crave more sweet things for the rest of the day. im trying to finish up what protein powder i do have so i can work on just mostly eating real foods, & want to work on decreasing my meat intake for 1) health reasons, 2)its cheaper, 3) i feel better when i eat more plants.

 

i was feeling crummy yesterday inside & out (women know the feeling :crushed:). i didn't eat past 8 pm! i did get up by 6 & meditated, but that was about it. but that's totally ok!

Yes! I like this as an adjusted strategy. :) Veggies. <3

I thought you were talking about me at first, including all your body movement interests.   I totally second the playground workout suggestion!

Ugh... that is never an uplifting experience. Good luck.

Solid reasons to modify the diet. I like the "veggies with every meal" idea, too.

3 solid wins for the day, nice work. 

 

May I ask what yin and merge are? I am not familiar with those terms.
