Week 63


This is so good. I have learned over my time fasting that I will have ups and downs... I do not lose anymore. I win and I learn. It is such a great thing to finally know your body and know what it can handle and what it can't. 

This week I gained 1.4 lbs. But, it is the one time a month, where I normally gain and I am not too upset about it. Shoot I lost 7 lbs last week. I will be down this week as well or at least that is my goal. Just have to move forward and look back on what I could have done better... I learn every single day!

Week 62

It feels like just yesterday that I started my fasting journey. 
And here I am now, killing it. Don't get me wrong, I know that I could be doing a lot better than I am doing right now, but I am okay with my results. 

I told myself that last year was getting into the habit of fasting and preparing my body to do more. And here I am doing more. I love knowing how I can push my body and what I need to do to lose the weight. 

Sunday I did 19/5 for the Super Bowl.
Monday - Wednesday I did OMAD.
Wednesday after dinner - I started my 48 hour fast.
Thursday - I was fasting all day.
Friday - so far I am fasting all day... I will eat after hour 48 of fasting for dinner. At this moment, I am 38 hours in. I feel good. I am hungry, but I just need to keep drinking my water and I should be good. Just like with any fast, if I feel weird I will eat for sure. But so far, I am doing pretty good. 

I have been moving a TON! I am doing my 5 arm exercises with 100 reps each day. I am doing some sort of crunch exercise each day. Not many... some days I do 10, some I do 20. I am slowly working to add more. I am doing either walking a mile a day or 20 minutes jumping. I am constantly moving and I think my body knows that. 

And bonus... a few NSV's. (That means Non Scale Victories...)
- My wedding ring will need to be resized when I go get it inspected and cleaned in a few months. I have been switching it to my right hand when it slips off. 
- I was looking at my foot the other day and I asked my husband if he thought my foot was getting smaller. It looked a little smaller to me... YES!

This week I am down 7 lbs. Total weight gone is 44.4 lbs.
I feel great and this makes it all work it. 
I will not stop until I reach my goals. I got this!

Workout Goals for February

My Workout Goals for February 2020

Last month, I focused on getting my steps for the day in and doing my 5 arm exercises every day. I did pretty well. I might have missed a few days on my arms during the weekend, but I did rather well. 

February 2020 I am adding a little more:
I will still do my 5 arm exercises. I do 100 of each one every day. 
I will walk a mile a day. 
I will add in some crunches. Not sure on the number yet. Yesterday I did 15 to get started. 
I will do some chin exercises to help with my chin fat.

I got this and I can't wait to see how much stronger I feel in March!

Change your MIND!

I am a strong believer in this above quote.
I have learned during this past 13 months, that you can do anything you set your mind to. It is your mind, however, that you have to convince. 

This morning is a prime example of that...
I walked 1 mile yesterday in the morning before work. 
I set my alarm to wake up this morning at 5:30 and get my mile in for the day.
I woke up at 4:30 and set my alarm to 6:30. I will walk my mile later or just skip today.
My body woke up at 5:30 and I sat there for a few minutes and finally realized that my mind is evil... I had no reason why I could not get up and get my mile in. I just knew I didn't want to. Well, you know what? My goals are bigger than what I want at this moment... so I got up and got in my workout clothes and walked my mile.

I am now super thankful I got up and did the work. I am super excited that I did not let my mind control what I wanted to do today.. And other than being a little more tired than normal, I am doing great. 

Here is to not letting my mind win today!
