I weighed myself today. Turns out I am now 182lbs. 😀 I don’t think I have ever brought it up in a post but I have been going on a fitness journey these last couple of months. When I started I was probs 240lbs maybe more! 😮 I didn’t check my weight at all until I had been at it for awhile. My first “official” weigh in was 224lbs. That means I have lost about 42-58lbs total. That’s cray cray. haha
I looked up one of those height and weight charts recently. Depending on whether one has a small, medium, or large frame one should weigh anywhere from 129-170lbs. That’s for someone who is 5’9 which I am. My new goal is to get in there somewhere. 😀
At the moment I am working out 5 days a week.Mondays is arms day. Tuesday is legs day. Wednesday is a rest day. Thursday I go for a run. Friday is abs. Saturday is a full body workout. Then Sunday I get a second rest day.
I am trying to eat healthier too but I have room for improvements. I am currently drinking only water. Have slowly phased soda and juice out. When it comes to my meals the goal has been to eat 1/3 proteins, 1/3 veggies(my biggest accomplishment is getting used to broccoli), 1/3 fruits and carbohydrates. Haven’t been eating fast food/junk food as much and instead been cooking my meals. Big thanks to youtube for teaching me how to cook.lol Oh and I’m not starving myself. I actually eat like 2,100 calories.
I have noticed that I feel way more energetic. I am stronger and faster than I have ever been. When I started I was lifting 10lb weights. Now I am lifting 25lb weights. My arms and legs actually look muscular. Unfortunately it seems like my tummy weight is the hardest for me to loose though. 😛
Going further I will be working on phasing out fast food completely. I will try to reduce snacks even more. Try to get use to some healthier alternatives. I will also be pushing myself to use 30lb weights.
Only have to lose 12lbs and I am in the range I should be. 🙂 I’m the closest I have ever been. Will keep you peeps updated from here on. Let me know if you are on a fitness journey of your own or have been. ^_^
