10 week challenge starts Today!

Good morning!

Even though I didn’t finish my challenge last time, I actually really enjoyed it and felt like it helped me in a lot of ways of making sure I read everyday and worked out as well; therefore I decided to do another one! This time I will be doing a 10 week challenge rather than a 6 week challenge!

My 10 week challenge starts today and ends on November 25th! This is what I’ll have to do everyday (minus the weekly photo) in order to complete my challenge:

• Workout everyday for at least 30 minutes.

• Drink a gallon or more of water.

• Read for 15 minutes or more daily.

• Write a blog post everyday!

• Intermittent fast. Minimum of 12 hours but aim for 16!

• Progress photo once a week along with measuring myself once a week.

I’m so excited, it has been about 3 weeks since I worked out but I’m ready to get back into it! I also want to eventually incorporate keto into my diet slowly!

Anyone want to do the challenge with me?

July challenge update…

Happy August! Can you believe it’s already August? Where has the time gone seriously? The months are just flying on by in a blink of an eye! Yesterday was my birthday and my first goal was to reach 275 by my birthday but then changed my goal to 265 to 270. I sadly didn’t reach my second goal but I did reach my first one, I weighed myself yesterday morning and was 274.4. Woohoo! At least I was lower then I wanted my first goal to be!

As for my challenge I put myself on, I’m actually doing really good. I have been sticking to it all since I started it almost 2 weeks ago! I’ve been working out every single day even the days I’m extremely tired and or lazy; I try to just do something for 30 minutes rather then just laying my ass in bed!

The first week I had so much energy and this week I have just been so tired and lazy but I force myself to go! I feel like if I skip a day, I’ll just give up on my challenge slowly! For example like today, I went to Disneyland with the little girl I nanny for and we all know Disneyland is exhausting but I forced myself to go to the gym afterwards at 9:30pm (straight from work to the gym) and worked out for 45 minutes! I’m beyond exhausted right now and it’s already 11:30 pm but I wanted to write this down since it is the 1st of the month!

I’m really hoping I can fully stick to this challenge of working out everyday, reading everyday, fasting and drinking a lot more water daily the rest of the month like I challenged myself to do. I also am really hoping that I’ll be 265 or less by the end of August…fingers crossed!

6 Week Weight loss Challenge.

I have decided to challenge myself to do a weigh loss challenge again now that July is almost over. I’m close to getting to my weight loss goal for July but I decided to extend my goal till August 31. I would now love to be at 260 to 265 if not more by then. I am currently as of yesterday 275; so I will have 10 to 15 pounds to lose in 6 weeks. I listened to the podcast about 75 Hard and I don’t think I can do that one; however, my friend is doing it and she has motivated me to come up with my own version. So for 6 weeks I will be challenging myself to:

  • workout 5 to 7 days a week for minimum of 30 minutes a day.
  • drink about 135 oz of water a day.
  • eat more fruits and veggies.
  • eat less carbs and sugar
  • take progress phots and measurements along with weighing myself once a week.
  • fast for 16 hours or more…minimum 14 if I have to break my fast earlier.
  • read for 15 minutes or more a day (this has nothing to do with my weight loss; however, its good for me mentally and I never have time and love reading so I will be forcing myself to make time now)

Today was my first day and I already have worked out, read a book, fasted, taken my progress photo and I’m almost done with my oz of water for the day.

New weight goal for July…

2019-06-29 20.47.58

I cannot believe I’m only 1.6 pounds away from meeting my July goal weight…how insane! If you haven’t read my last blog post I pretty much challenged myself to go from 282 to 275 by my birthday (July 31) I started this challenge for myself just this past Monday so it hasn’t even been a week and I have already lost 6.2 pounds in the past few days! I decided that I am going to focus on my goal weight being anywhere from 265 to 270 pounds by end of July.

I made major changes to my everyday life this week and I know that’s what really helping me;

  • I started fasting again but I am sticking to fully doing 16 hours or more everyday. I think there was only one day that I did 14 hours which is still good.
  • I also watch what I eat; I am cutting back on sugar and carbs a lot. I am someone who ate a ton of sugar and carbs without a care honestly and this is such a shock for my body. I have still enjoyed a few treats but I make sure I don’t go over my sugar intake for the day (I track my meals on myfitnesspal) that helps me to make sure I’m not over eating on anything.
  • I am getting in the habit of drinking a ton more water. I take my hydro flask water bottle that’s 40 oz with me everywhere I go and I try to refill it at least 3 times a day.
  • Lastly I am working out almost everyday this week. I don’t do anything too crazy, I try to do some sort of cardio whether its elliptical or walking for at least 30 minutes then I’ll do some weight training a few times a week.

I’m so excited for this journey! Lets kick this July challenges butt!
