21 days in…

2019-08-10 20.28.00

I started a challenge 21 days ago and I am so surprised that I have stuck to it! My challenge mainly consisted of working out 5 to 7 days but decided to just challenge myself to workout everyday even if its a slow turtle walk for 30 minutes. I have had to also read everyday, along with watch what I eat, drink more water and fast daily. Some days were a lot harder than others but I managed to force myself to get up and do some sort of exercise for 30 minutes at least. When I started the challenge I was 275 pounds; I am now 271.8. my goal is to be at least 265 by the end of this month; which means I have 21 more days to lose 6.8 pounds. I feel like if this was someone else it would be so much more easier but I think for me its so much harder to lose the weight since I have such hormone issues. I even got my period while doing this challenge which I hadn’t gotten in 3 months and oh my goodness the pain was unreal.. the cramps hurt like a bitch but I still pushed myself to work out.

The shocking part is that I am actually starting to really enjoy working out and I have noticed that I don’t get as tired when I workout as I used too … I am loving it!

Heres to the last 21 days of the challenge…lets see what will happen!

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.
