Main mission: To get back into a positive and healthy lifestyle

Life has been busy with two puppies and a new job. I am spending less time on my mental well-being and physical health.  I want to use this challenge be a catalyst of a healthier mind and body. I have finally found two forms of exercise that I really love. I have been indoor bouldering and doing yoga a couple times a week, as well as some strength training.

My ultimate goal weight is 115-120, so here’s to hoping I can get the bangin’ bod I’ve wanted.

 

Goal 1: FitnessWorkout at least 180 minutes per week

Make it to the climbing gym at least twice per week and at least one yoga sessions per week. I would like to do one day of strength training per week.

A - 180+ minutes

B - 150 - 179 minutes

C - 120 - 149 minutes

D - 90 - 119 minutes

F - <89 minutes

 

Goal 2: All the paleo

I love cooking and felt really great the last time I ate paleo. I like the structure. I want to do mostly paleo, with a one meal exception per week.

A - 6 days of paleo

B - 5 days 

C - 4 days 

D - 3 days 

F - 2 or fewer days per week

 

Goal 3: Eliminate food waste

Goal is to meal plan and prep on Sunday, and only buy what I need. This should keep me from over buying and underrating, as well as going out to eat in a pinch. I've been slacking!

A - 4 weeks of food prep

B – 3 weeks of food prep

C – 2 weeks of food prep

D - 1 week of food prep

 

Life Quest: Stress relief 4x/week. At least 20 minutes of reading/meditating/adult coloring.

A - 4 days per week

B – 3 days per week

C – 2 days per week

D – 1 days per week

F - 0 days per week

 

Busy two months ahead of me with SXSW and my sister's wedding, but I finally feel like I am making progress with my fitness goals and making the changes I have wanted to make for ages. Here's to keeping it up!

 

Starting Weight: 

Hips: 39.5 in

L thigh: 22 in

R thigh: 21.5 in

L calf: 14 in

R calf: 14 in

Chest: 31.5 in

L bicep: 11.5 in

R bicep: 11.5 in

E_mo's quest to learn how to delete her three posts in a row

 

Haha, please don't, that really amused me. 

 

(But you can't delete posts, you're going to have to edit them and show us some super awesome gifs instead)

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

Paleo meal #2 was a success! Also went out to dinner to a nice place for date night. They only had one paleo item on the entire menu, so I ended up getting the $40 steak. Mmmm. And there is a place in Austin that serves paleo friendly ice cream. Coconut cocoa ice cream with natural sweeteners. Success!

 

I'm about 90 minutes into my 180 minutes of exercise for the week. I hope to do some reading tonight for some "me" time.

So it has been a fun weekend. Bachelorette party was a success and my sis had a ton of fun.

 

I am 1/3 of the way finished with writing my MOH speech and bought a baller dress for her rehearsal dinner. I am so pumped for all the wedding stuff!

 

As for my goals:

 

I am just skirting by with exactly 180 mins of exercise this week. It was a strong exercise week at the beginning, and then faltered at the end due to the bachelorette party and wicked hangover. Next week I want to do a strong hour climbing session tomorrow, yoga class on Tuesday, then some sort of home video or cardio Wednesday, and climbing on Thurs or Fri.

 

I have taken so much time to read and work on some stress relief. Success there.

 

Also I ate 100% paleo for 6/7 days this week. Then yesterday it was pretty much 75% carbs and alcohol. Oh well.

 

Onto next week!
