MAIN QUEST: Lose Weight Feel Great!


To hit my goal range of 125-135 and do it in a healthy way!

Goals (diet and fitness related) that will help me achieve Main Quest:

 

I feel like I just haven't made much progress at all the last 14 challenges. I keep losing and gaining the same 10 pounds lately... Not really sure how to fix this, but I just keep trying! I haven't written my back story in a long time, so here is a refresher. All through high school I struggled to GAIN weight. I weighed 110 pounds all through high school. I am 5'2", so that's a "healthy" weight, but I really was way too thin and didn't have any muscle. Then I started having babies and started gaining weight. My heaviest was 219. I am at 205 now. I have managed over the years to diet myself down to 165 at the lowest, but it was a very unhealthy diet (around 500 calories a day) and I started losing my hair, so I decided I would rather be fat and have hair than to thin with no hair lol 

 

So, I am just trying to find something that works... I am also hypothyroid. I am on meds that I honestly forget to take half the time. I need to get better at that. So, I have been steadily cleaning up my diet. I like Paleo, but I also like cheese and beans... I am playing around with the Wild Diet and intermittent fasting and bulletproof coffee and just eating much less processed junk and more whole foods. 

 

I am still trying to work out 6 days a week! I was planning to have my home gym set up by now, but the IRS and the Healthcare Marketplace totally screwed us, so we are STILL waiting on our tax refund, which we filed on Jan 28th! UGH! Should be a couple more weeks, but might be longer, and will probably be a paper check instead of direct deposited, which is just inconvenient! Anyway, was planning on doing the Master's Hammer & Chisel, but really want my gym set up before we start that, so on the 1st I am ordering 22 Minute Hard Corps, which is an 8 week program. Plus, I will be doing CIZE with it... not the entire workout, but just the dance at the end of each workout 3 times. So, that's about 4 minutes added onto the 22 minutes, so it should be fine!! 

 

In case you have no clue what these programs are, here are videos! :)

It's pretty tough, but I figure after 8 weeks I am bound to be better, stronger, more fit, so what do I have to lose!? ;)

I am moving this from my last challenge, just to keep people in the loop of what is going on with me career-wise! I am currently a special ed paraprofessional working in a low income elementary school. So, a couple weeks ago I found an ad for the Kansas City Teachers Residency program. It's a year long program for people with a Bachelor's degree who want to become teachers. If you get into the program, you work with a mentor teacher in an inner city school district all of next school year, kind of like student teaching, you get your Masters of Education paid for, your teacher certification, and a $25,000 stipend for living expenses. I have wanted to become a teacher for a LONG time, but I can't afford to take a year off work to do student teaching and more schooling.

Anyway, they only take 25 people per year, so it's pretty competitive. I applied and had my phone interview last Monday. Friday I got my email inviting me to Selection Day. Selection Day is a full day where you go to one of their partner schools and do a face to face interview, as well as a teaching demonstration to an actual elementary class, and get to meet the other partner schools and the other candidates. So, I get to do that on April 8th and then on April 15th, they let you know if you are in the program. Then you get to visit 2-3 schools and choose where you want to be placed. Then starting in June, there is a teacher academy for a month, and then in August you start working under your mentor teacher. I want this sooooo bad!! Keep your fingers crossed! :)

Do you ever want to NOT be in charge? My husband is working overnights and my 15 year old, X, is being mean to me, and I kind of just want to run away. :/

The kid doesn't need to be told that part. Besides, cloning is getting more advanced every day. Just pull one of the kid's hairs out. When they ask what that was for, tell them it's so they can clone a replacement for when you kill the current one.

I do not feel it ever gets easier.  Maybe when they are super old?  My kids are 18 and 19, and still I get so frustrated.  I think it is worse now because I cant demand stuff.  I have often though how nice it would be to go to like a mental hospital for a weekend, they can feed me, do all the work, give me happy meds.  I do not want it permanent.  Just like a vacation!

W00t!  morning people ftw!  You will get adjusted to being an early riser in no time!  I find now on weekends I am not able to sleep in much.

It's crazy!! My boys are 23, 21, and 15. Luckily the older two no longer drive me insane! ;) I felt like 17 was the worst year... but I am hoping it doesn't get worse at 17 with X!! I was doing really well on waking up early until last week. I was exhausted... but then I realized i was sick! :/ I'm feeling better now, so I'm back to getting up at 4:45 am. BLAH! I am NOT a morning person! lol

 

So, I changed something else on my challenge. I replaced hydrate with taking my meds. That's more important to track right now.

My first alarm goes off @ 3am.  I noticed if I snooze too much, my ferrets go crazy and climb on me to wake me up (they have free roam in my bedroom).  I have turned off all alarms on weekend and notice they still get me up by 4am, but I am usually laying there awake already. 

I used to not be a morning person.  7,8 am was too early for me! 

That is good you are adjusting your goals to fit you and what you feel you need the most.  Are you excited to start the new workout program?

I pushed my wake up time an hour earlier. It's bumming me out, but I'm getting so much done!!! Plus, no one else is awake (even the dogs won't get up this early) so I get to be alone for a hot damn minute, which is like heaven.

 

I am the same way!! I love the me time... so much so that I feel like I want to eventually get up around 4:30! 

 

My first alarm goes off @ 3am.  I noticed if I snooze too much, my ferrets go crazy and climb on me to wake me up (they have free roam in my bedroom).  I have turned off all alarms on weekend and notice they still get me up by 4am, but I am usually laying there awake already. 

I used to not be a morning person.  7,8 am was too early for me! 

That is good you are adjusting your goals to fit you and what you feel you need the most.  Are you excited to start the new workout program?

 

Nope, 3 am is way too early! ;) I get about 6 hours of sleep right now, I don't think I could survive on less. I get really tired in the afternoon... some days I need to take a nap after work. I try not to though. My thyroid problems really make me tired too. I am really excited about the new workout program!! I feel like I should see great results with it! But I am apprehensive as well, because it looks really hard!! But I think hard is what I need right now!

 

I have a happy hour tonight with the teacher residency program. Completely out of my comfort zone, but I thought it was probably a good idea to go... let them know I really want in the program!!
