kamtastic Posted July 3, 2016 Report Share Posted July 3, 2016 Morning all! Starting my battle log. Pretty sure conventional practice is to start the healthy journey after a holiday. But that's just silly. Let's start now! Calling it "No Days Off" because I don't want cheat days or lazy days. Obviously my body needs rest and there's nothing wrong with having a treat here or there. But I want to be mindful every day of the choices I'm making. Giving myself an entire day off to eat whatever or sit on the couch for 16 hours isn't going to make me feel better. Not 100% what I'll end up putting here. All the feels, prolly. To kick things off, I have my starting stats. As much as I don't want to share, here we go! Weight: 201.8 pounds Height: 5'3" Body-fat percentage (using US Navy): 50% Neck: 15" Chest: 42.25" Waist at narrowest: 41" Waist at naval: 43.5" Hips: 47' Thighs: 28" Arms: 15" Wrist: 6.5" Forearm: 11' For diet, I'm using Weight Watchers. I need something beginner-friendly and this seems to be working for me. The problem is I don't stick with it. I lost 7 pounds earlier this year by using WW religiously and then I just . . . stopped for a while and gained most of it back. No more! For exercise, I'm all over the place in a good way. For instance, Friday I did a Barre3 workout. Yesterday I did Walk Away the Pounds (super cheesy but low-impact ^_^). Today I did Yoga with Adriene (Day 1 of the 30-day challenge). So all low-impact and beginner-level. Easy to modify. And lots of variety to keep boredom away. Right now the goal is to get off the couch every day. I'll bump up intensity as I go. Off to walk the dogs. Excited to see how this space becomes more "me" as I go. Quote You are a force to be reckoned with. Link to comment
