.TIFF Posted November 11, 2014 Report Share Posted November 11, 2014 Hello There!So I took a stab at this once but had too many forums and apps to keep up with so this time its just here and small updates to my academy battle log.Main Quest:To lose fat, gain strength, and feel better about my body.I used to have a number in mind, and a size but I think for now I would like to focus on the process more than the end result.Missions:-Get 10k steps at least 4 days a week via my fitbit for tracking. (Graded weekly, A=4+, B=3, C=2, F=-2)-Get in 3 dedicated workouts per week (crossfit, dumbbell division/cross training at home, or a new exciting class at the gym). (Graded weekly, A=3+, B=2, C=1, F=-1)-Track all my meals via two grand, (Graded weekly, A=100-95%, B=95-76%, C=75-60%, F=-60%). This will also help me work towards the 80/20% healthy choices balance.Life Quest: To try out the MMA intro class as well as some martial arts classes at my gym.My Motivations:I've always been chubby, and was raised in a family where healthy choices were broccoli drenched in cheese. I want to have the knowledge to teach my one day kids how to be healthy and not have to struggle like I have. And I want to get my body to a state that I can be proud of.The Obstacles and Helpful Things:Obstacles will mainly come from my home/boyfriend. As much as I love the guy he has an insane metabolism and could eat pasta every day. I do not have that super power so I will need to find a happy medium and make sure I portion control well when we do eat heavy dinners.My work tends to have potlucks monthly, its always unhealthy food, and they tend to be mandatory. I will need to portion control, and look for the healthiest options available (aka. Say no to the Mac and cheese).Holidays are coming up which was always associated with stuffing myself full of food as a kid.I had a very bad sprain and am still recovering, I need to watch and listen to my body so that I don't reinjure myself or harm it more.The Helpful Things:I am already in the habit of cooking at home almost every day, and also can easily say no to lunches out with coworkers.I am taking part in a 3 month weight loss challenge at work where I weigh in weekly, this should help keep me on track with goals.I already love to work out, I just need to work on a set schedule and stick with it.I will be back tomorrow with my proper weight and measurements, didn't have time this morning before work.While I had to start this a day late due to traveling all day yesterday I am ready and excited!
