Day One…

AGAIN!!

I am so tired of starting over! But its my own fault. I let myself quit.  Life happens, things get busy, I am now going to school full time on top of working full time and being a full time mum. But.  I HAVE to make tome for me to get back in shape and healthy!

I am going to do it!

I am going to put it all there right now!!

I weigh 170 pounds!! *Insert CRYING Emjoi!*

According to different BMI calculators:

BMI Description
<18.5 Underweight
18.5 – 24.9 Normal
25 – 29.9 Overweight
>30 Obese

Your Body-Mass Index (BMI) is

32.12

BMI = 32.12 kg/m2   (Obese Class I)
normal BMI range: 18.5 – 25 kg/m2
normal weight range for the height: 97.9 – 132.3 lbs

 

To be considered normal I would need to weigh between 100 and 130 pounds.

My goal is to get to 120 Maybe 115.

 

I have actually been moving more since i got my new position.  But not enough apparently!

 

*I plan to cut bad carbs- breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, things like that.

*I also plan to start the apple cider vinegar cleanse ( one tablespoon of Bratts apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water before each meal.)

*Starting T25 tonight

*starting Piyo AND T25 tomorrow (T45 in the morning and Piyo at night)

When I get home I will take a Before Picture. *insert cry Emoji!* and in 25 days I will take an after.

 

I want to hear from you! Who needs motivation and wants to start today with me?!

 

 

Back to it…

I mean I never fell off of working out.. But the diet started yesterday!

SO my boyfriend and I kicked off the 21 day fix. Worst part in that we haven’t taken our before pictures yet.. I NEED TO MAKE SURE I DO THAT!

 

Yesterdays meals:

Breakfast:

Greek lowfat yogurt- 1 red

Blueberries- 1 purple

flax- 1 orange

 

Lunch:

Turkey- 1 red

2 whole wheat wraps- 1 yellow

 

Snack:

sliced cucumbers- 1 green

1 hard boiled egg (with yolk)- 1 red

 

Dinner=

 

Buffalo chicken wrap from d’angelos- not sure the things for this… but I had stuff. The only thing I don’t think was on the list was the buffalo sauce.

 

I didn’t end up working out either.. Just wasn’t feeling it.

 

Put my meal in the app I have- “Lose it” I didn’t even get 1200 calories.. NOT GOOD!!!

 

Today I brought the same thing except an extra egg and an extra cup of veggies (One red and One green)

 

So my goals for the next 21 days:

  • drink all my water (at least 85 ounces)

  • Follow the 21 day fix plan

  • workout 5 times a week

  • 10,000 daily

  • not obsess about the number on the scale

What are your goals? Leave them in a comment!!

Fit Mum- Packed Lunch

My biggest downfall in my weight loss journey is not bringing breakfast or lunch.

Last Thursday I went out and bought a lunch box.  Similar to this one.

I looked at those cute lunch box kits and found that I could get the rubbermade containers and my ice packs cheaper. So that’s what I did.  I also bought only fruits, vegetables and granola.

I forgot my lunch Wednesday.  But we had a team breakfast out and I was full all day from that.

 

What I learned about bringing my meals is that I’m a snacker.  I packed a banana, a yogurt, a cup of fruit, a cup of vegetables, and a salad with a veggie burger.  I didn’t eat my lunch I ate the burger then an hour or so later the vegetables… Good to know for next weeks meal prep 🙂

When you take the time you will notice your habits.  you can use that to change and alter your lifestyle so it works for you.

 

Best step day yet. 😊

  
Super proud. I hit 10k before the Super Bowl started and just kept going. 
Now I’m on a mission to find an app to track distance based on the steps and pace. For when I run in place vs outside. 

Yesterday I went for a run. I did 2 miles in 15 minutes. From what I’ve been told this is a good marathon speed. Soooo. I must be doing something right 👊🏼💪🏼

Feature Friday- A healthy YOU

You have to do it.

You have to make changes for you!

I haven’t been to the dentist since 09.  I have a cleaning Monday and yesterday I had full x-rays done.  No cavities still!! 30 years old and never had one! SCORE!!! I did chip a tooth which is the result of a calcium deficit which I was given paste to help restore. But also from teeth clenching when stressed/frustrated, more on this later.

Last year I saw an eye doctor for the first time since 09.  I will be going again on Saturday (Mainly because I lost my prescription and I need new glasses) I got myself prescription sun glasses last year.  With how much we were in the sun it was perfect.  This year I plan to get new glasses with transitional lenses so that when I go outside I don’t have to worry about carrying my other glasses.  This is how my new ones got scratched up.  I would switch pairs and drop them in my purse/bag.  Bad habits!

I have decided that Sundays are my “spa day” When my daughter goes to bed I take a detox bath using Dr Teals Detox and energize. I also have started doing DIY facials.  I don’t have any problems with my skin.  I mainly am doing it to help future issues.  keeping moisturized and stuff. I had been giving myself pedicures as well with Bath and Body Works foot soak and overnight use Bath and Body Works Foot cream with socks on. I will be investing in a foot jet thing.  Right now I soak in a bucket lol.

A healthy and less stress mum makes for a happy home.  Taking time to do something as small as soak in a tub, do your toes, tweeze your eyebrows.  Will not only help your confidence but give you time to get away from the world.

After seeing my dentist I noticed that my teeth clenching drives from biting my tongue with coparenting with my boyfriend.  We are two very different parents.  I am strict and he is laid back.  He constantly tells me to learn to not hear it, the kid doing something I don’t like (dude mans yo yo has this ringing noise and its nails on a chalk board to me..) So I will go for a run, take a tub, fold laundry. Just remove myself and take some time.

 

When was the last time you did something for the better of YOU?!
