Faervel17 - Starts from scratch

Hey everyone! Missed you all! 

I've let "life" take control in some good ways and not so good ways so I'm back and ready to kick my own butt back into shape because I need it and my health needs it. In the past year I've gained back 15 pounds after having lost 10 last year. I know this isn't a lot but I'm not in a dangerous category I just need to lose weight to bring health issues back into control. I find myself now being more out of shape and feeling like my body is less capable than it was last year. I'm very grateful to have been able to eat foods I wasn't able to in a long time, to not be sick and be able to take my kids camping and go do different activities with the family but I slacked in the self care areas and definitely need to kick it back up. 

Anyway enough with what's gone wrong - and sorry if it's just babble as I'm really just accepting where I'm at, and jumping in and starting again. 

So my goals are
 

Diet

~ Meal plan and stick to it! - no more last minute deciding or throwing together stuff. We've already elimited eating out from a financial stand point so meal planning is the next step. 
~ Water, water, water. - migraines are back, I know I'm not drinking enough. It's basic, I always seem to have it on this list but I really need to make this a habit. 

 

Fitness:

~ FInd the fitbit, wear it use it, join some challenges,  I loved it but have slacked off. 
~ 15min or more workout 3x a week. - I have enough workout videos, programs, knowledge and supplies that this should not be an issue but of course because I'm human it is. 

 

Level Up My Life:

~ 10 minutes of meditation daily - this can be colouring, guided, or just plain breathing quietly while hiding in the bathroom but 10 minutes to myself to help manage my stress levels daily 

For the sake of keeping things simple I'm not assigning rewards these are pass and fail goals. 

If you've read this leave a comment with your challenge I'll take a look. Do my best to send you some encouraging messages and check in!

You have a solid plan here, Faervel. Meal planning has been a life saver for me from both a health and financial stand point. I also cook double portions of a lot of things so I can freeze it to have dinners for when I just don't feel like cooking. 

 

Good luck with your challenge, I will be checking in on your regularly. And welcome back! 

I'm more than adequate. Leave Kanye out of this.

I wish I could check in on my phone as I certainly spend more online time on that during waiting moments. Waiting while picking kids up, waiting in line at the bank, etc. 

Thanks guys for the encouragement! Feels great to be back here!! 
This week's meal plan is simple. SOUP! As we have all come down with a nasty cold!! Realistically we also had pancakes, and leftovers because we need the fridge to be cleaned out so we can go away for 5 days this weekend into next week! While we are away I'm taking a small cooler and stopping at the grocery store so we don't need to eat out on the drives. Once we are at our destination we will be staying with family so again we just head to the grocery store and pitch in on groceries. 
Once we arrive home again I'm excited to meal plan I'm planning on adding some meals we haven't eaten often but I'm not sure which ones. 

Drinking water is easy - especially with a sore scratchy throat. My body has just demanded the extra fluids. 

I found the fitbit! It's charging and getting ready for our weekend away! 

Working out hasn't worked with this nasty cold. I hope to make up for it on our trip we have plans to hike in mountains (which I've never seen the mountains before) and take the kids to a huge zoo!

Meditating is going awesome. I've been feeling really low and I know it's helping.

Haha, I love soup meal planning. Easy AF and keeps the fridge clean by throwing all the things in the crockpot and then dumping chicken stock or coconut milk on top. But my wife mutinies after 3 or 4 soups in a row, life is rough.

On iOS, Tapatalk sorta works. It tends to double post and there's a learning curve to figuring out it's notification settings, but I think it's pretty much the standard of mobile forum browsing. 

 

Have fun on vacation Faervel!
