Well, its been just over 3 months since I last posted, which shows how crazy school has been this semester.
Since life has been busy, my workouts have been slacking and my nutrition has been worse than what I was hoping, but a lot better than I expected with my crazy busy life. I am still eating 3 full meals per day and 1-3 snacks depending on how hungry I am. I am trying to stick around 2100 calories still per day and this has been pretty successful.
Just over 3 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to clean up my diet and start exercising so I took pictures and set a 4 week challenge for myself. Since starting, I have only done 7 workouts which is not up to my standards so as of today, December 1st, I am going to kick it up a notch and try to get down to my 1st goal weight.
Currently, I am 223.2 pounds which is down 2.4 from my last weigh in that I posted on here. I am still aiming at an overall goal of 179 but I have broken it down into smaller goals yet again, since I did not obtain my last goal. As of today, I want to be down 13.2 pounds by Christmas.
Last week I started 30 Day Shred (I am doing it with 2 rest days per week) and it is burning roughly 300 calories per workout.
From now until Christmas, I would like to not only lose weight, but I would like to tone up. I am planning on doing 18 days of the 30 Day Shred in that time and also trying to get 2-3 5K runs in per week since my running has been lacking over the past three months.
Photos from the Challenge, as well as my progress pictures for December will be uploaded once a week!
