Keeta's New Start

Recommended Posts

Yup, I'm back. Tried this a few years ago and didn't manage to stick to it. But this time, I have new motivation! I am getting married in June or October of next year and I want to start my new life on the right foot (plus look awesome in my wedding photos of course ;) ). I am also starting a new job, closer to home, which means less time sitting in the drivers seat; a plus all the way around!


 


I am a 30 year old female, non-smoker.


On July 26, I weighed 187 lbs, at 4 ft' 9" tall.


According to the BMI Charts, I should weight between 91 lbs. and 115 lbs. To me, this is unrealistic right now, so I'm going to shoot for a more reasonable 130 by my wedding. That's 57 lbs. It can be done!


 


Main Quest(s):


Reach 130 lbs by June 2016


Reach 150-155 lbs by January 2016 so I can go wedding dress shopping!


 


 


Goals:


 


I'm starting small this time. I'm not going to do something too demanding, because I want to be able to achieve all of my goals. 


Once I've gained confidence, I'll ramp up the intensity! :D 


 


1) Drink more water: According to Slender Kitchen (link below) I should be drinking a minimum of 125 oz of water, daily. Which is basically, a gallon.


I feel I will be making good progress if I manage this 5 days a week.

2) Use my activity monitor daily: Wear it and accomplish the fitness goal 4+ days a week; minimum activity goal 7 days a week.

3) Be in bed, lights out, no later than 10:30 on work nights, so I am well rested and have enough energy to accomplish the fitness goals!

Life Quest: Keep my room clean, including making my bed daily.

Other Facts about Keeta:


*I teach 1st grade. I'm starting at a new school this year.


*My interests include: music, reading, facebook, birding/bird watching, fiber arts, and....procrastinating ;)


*I am a diet pepsi and sugar addict. Future 6 wk goals(?): Reduce Diept pepsi to 20-24 oz daily, then 12 oz daily, then none; then work on sugar detox?


 


Starting Measurements:


Bust: 44 in.


Waist: 48 in.


Hips: 49 in.

Thigh: 29 in. 


 


Feel free to drop by and chat. Looking forward to a fresh start!

Wow! This drinking water thing is hard. I may have to work up to a gallon. I gave a valient effort for my first day though. No done with today, but again, tried really hard. I think I will manage a gallon of liquid, however not a gallon of water, perhaps. Steps in the right direction though I suppose. 

 

Sleep didn't go well last night either. I tried, but I tossed and turned most of the night. 

 

But....success on the activity monitor front. I wore it all day yesterday and exceeded my fitness goal. Yay! Today I was in meetings most of the day and now it's raining (plus I didn't really sleep) so I'm thinking I won't meet the fitness goal today. At least I am going to meet the minimum activity goal though. Baby steps as they say...

Looks like you had a good start.

I'm studying to become a primary school teacher, too. ;) And I'm a big procrastinator :(

Looking forward to seeing your progress in the next six weeks. A wedding is a great motivation.

Hey!  How goes your challenge?  

 

Fiber Arts, you say?  Yes!  What kind, what kind?  I'm a knitter myself.  Currently obsessed with socks, but also making a luchador stuffy for a friend's birthday right now and a lace stole to trade work with another friend.

 

For drinking water:  do you happen to have a smart phone?  There is an app called Plant Nanny that's helped me drink more water.  It gives you a cute little plant the gets watered as you drink and if you fail to drink it gets thirsty then withers.  So far I've taken pretty good care of my plants.  I don't know if something entertaining like that would help you or not  :playful:
