Hello. I'm Kate.  Im a 35 y.o. momma of a 3 y.o. Im new to NF, I found it when I was researching how to work out effectively. I have always been overweight and currently have about 120 lbs to be a healthy weight. I'm a big fan of Harry Potter, Star Wars and Marvel. 

 

Quest-Ease of movement through increased strength and decreased weight.

 

1. Log food in MFP every day and stay within my caloric goal 95% of the time.

 

2. Move every day. Goal of weight training 3-4 times per week with walking/biking on off days.

 

3. Stretch daily!

Hey Kate, nice goals! I especially like the 95% component on the caloric goal. It’s important to practice giving yourself some leeway, the only thing with calorie counting that really matters is tracking accurately and accumulating small successes over time.

Day 1

Quest 1-Since it is Mother's Day and I am a mother I had a bit of a diet cheat day.  Nothing ridiculous, but I didn't track.  

Quest 2-I did weight training using the NF formula (pull, push, quad, hamstring/butt and core).

Quest 3-I did a very short stretch.  I ate right before I did weights and it made me a bit sick to my stomach.  I just wanted to sit down tbh.

Happy Mother's Day! (same to all other mothers reading this)

I'm also 35, new to NF, looking to shed some weight, and am alternating my workouts roughly like yours. Glad to see I'm in good company! Good luck and congrats on a good start!

Week 1 went well! I have been doing strength training and either walking or biking on alternating days.my diet has been decent. I am steadily losing weight.

I have been stretching, but some very sore hamstrings has made that a challenge.

Today was a strength training day. I did weighted squats, arnold presses, hip lifts, hammer curls and crunches. Felt good. Got in a good stretch since my hamstring soreness has calmed down. Calories were on point as well!
