Challenge 17 part 2 : Don't Stop Me Now!

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 16 challenges. I keep losing and gaining the same 10 pounds lately... Not really sure how to fix this, but I just keep trying! Back story: 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 207 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 

 

My tracking will be different this challenge. I am trying something new... I am using Zelda hearts this challenge. I thought it might be fun to change it up a little bit. I will be figuring it out as I go along... I will do weekly hearts and then average them out at the end, I guess. I will start at full hearts and change them at the end of each week!

 

1. #LoseBodyFat - I am changing things up a bit. I want to lose 4% body fat this challenge. I have researched and I THINK it's possible?? lol 

Current body fat percentage according to my new fancy-schmancy scale = 53.7%

 

A: 49.7% - full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - 1 CON, 2 STR
B: 50.7% - 3%20hearts_zps4pv3xj8y.jpg - 1 CON, 1.5 STR
C: 51.7% - 2%20hearts_zpswunadg5o.jpg - 1 CON, 1 STR
D: 52.7% - 1%20heart_zpsvqi4u8zo.jpg - 0.5 CON, 0.5 STR
F: >53.7% - zero%20hearts_zpsusb4oc8f.jpg - 0 CON, 0 STR

Ability to earn 1 CON, 2 STR

 

full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg = perfect week! On task = lose 1% per week.

3%20hearts_zps4pv3xj8y.jpg = lose 0.75% for the week

2%20hearts_zpswunadg5o.jpg = lose 0.5% for the week

1%20heart_zpsvqi4u8zo.jpg = lose 0.25% for the week

zero%20hearts_zpsusb4oc8f.jpg = lose zero % for the week


2. #FitGirl - Workout 4 days a week. This will include The Hammer's Master & Chisel, walking, and whatever else I decide... If I get over 10,000 steps in a day, I am counting that as a workout. 
A: 14-16 workouts - full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - 2 STA, 2 STR, 1 DEX
B: 11-13 workouts - 3%20hearts_zps4pv3xj8y.jpg - 1.5 STA, 1.5 STR, 1 DEX

D: 5-7 workouts - 1%20heart_zpsvqi4u8zo.jpg - 0.5 STA, 0.5 STR, 0 DEX
F: <5 workouts - zero%20hearts_zpsusb4oc8f.jpg - 0 STA, 0 STR, 0 DEX
Ability to earn 2 STA, 2 STR, 1 DEX points.

2%20hearts_zpswunadg5o.jpg = 2 workouts for the week

1%20heart_zpsvqi4u8zo.jpg = 1 workout for the week

zero%20hearts_zpsusb4oc8f.jpg = no workouts for the week


3. #CountingCalories - I have started counting calories again. It's working so I am sticking with it. I plan to eventually count macros too. 
A: 25-27 days - full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - 3 CON
B: 22-24 days - 3%20hearts_zps4pv3xj8y.jpg - 2.5 CON
C: 19-21 days - 2%20hearts_zpswunadg5o.jpg  - 2 CON

As for the last challenge, I did sort of get my life together! ;) I found a summer job at a local artisan cheese shop, and while it is hard work, it's fun too! Plus, I found a new para job in my own start for next year!! It's $4.00 more an hour, plus they have level pay so I won't have to work at all next summer unless I just want to! :)

Yea for Zelda hearts.  Are you going to break some pots to gain extras if you have an unexpected event or setback???

That would be a great idea!!! Not really sure how to earn them though... might think about that for my next challenge! :) 

 

I have been working my ass off at work. So glad yesterday was Monday. I did basically nothing, but I DID take a walk with my guys and Aspen!! So, I am counting that! One of X's coworkers died yesterday, so we were kind of just playing things by ear last night and X wanted to go for a walk, so we did. I don't think it has actually hit him yet, but I bawled my eyes out when he told me, because it is just heartbreaking. The coworker was only 50 and it was really sudden. They are thinking heart failure. X thinks of his coworkers as family and this guy was one of the nicest people I have ever known. So, it's been a rough couple of days around here. 

 

I have friends coming over tomorrow night... I think this is our first real company since moving in here other than family. So, I am cleaning my house today!! BLAH!!

 

Anyway, here is my tracking so far: 

 

#LoseBodyFat: full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - started at 53.7%, am now at 52.9%

#FitGirl: full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - Took a walk yesterday, will update what I do today!

#CountCalories: full%20hearts_zps6cd0rku8.jpg - yep yep!
