RedPandaOne Posted April 7, 2015 Report Share Posted April 7, 2015 Time for some dÃ©jÃ vu:What do you do when your 2014 resolution was to lose 10 pounds and then you end up gaining 10 pounds instead? Pick yourself up and try again. So here I am, picking myself back up and continuing on my goal to get healthy. Overall, I want to be smaller. I know that my measurements will become smaller but the scale could go up. This is something I constantly struggle with. Since 8th grade Iâ€™ve been trying to get the scale to go down (yup, I was an 8th grader drinking SlimFast for breakfast). And with doctors constantly hounding me to lose weight, it is ingrained in my head that the scale needs to go down. So, yes, I want to lose weight, but I want/need to become stronger. My goal is to be 2-3 inches smaller in all my measurements (waist, arms, thighs, hips). If I lose weight in the process, yay! If not, well, you may need to talk some sense back into me. So here we go for Challenge Number 7: Main 3 goals:Track food 5 days a week This is to see if Iâ€™m actually eating healthy and the right portion sizes. Obviously something isnâ€™t working. Strength Train 3x a week (MWF) Hey guys! Remember when I couldnâ€™t even do it once a week? Iâ€™m now doing it 2x consistently! Go me! Now to add another day Swim at least 1x a week, 2x if body can handle it (TTH) If not swim, hoop! I really, really want to start hooping again, but being insecure at the gym I just havenâ€™t. So, if Iâ€™m not swimming that week, I need to hoop! The weather is starting to get warmer so I can start doing it in the garage again. Scoring: Each Main Goal will be graded on a scale of A-F. Fully completed will get an A while never even attempted will get an F. Partially completed or half assed attempted will get somewhere in the B-D range. EDIT 4/10: Adding in a mini challenge!!!! I'm going to see how long I can go without peeling off a fingernail.When I get bored or stress I start picking at my fingernails and then end up just peeling them off. So, I bought nail polish last night when I was at CVS and my hope is that maybe it will curb this habit if I actually have pretty nails. Just going to take this one day at a time. No pass or fail. But I will reward myself with something if I can go all 6 weeks 3 Quote "You won't find your answers by looking to the stars. It's a journey you'll have to take by looking inside yourself.
