Hi Loves! I’ve been a bigger girl my whole life, and while I’m fine with that – I want to be a bigger, “healthy,” girl – and take care of myself. Heart disease, diabetes, and various cancers run in my family. If I’m doomed to get something like that down the road – I at least want to be in a healthier place than I am right now.
I’m going to be doing these posts weekly – usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. I have an alarm set on my phone to go off every Tuesday morning for a weekly weigh in. While I”m not brave enough to share hard numbers – I’ll share the amount I gain or lose. 2 weeks ago I gained 2 lbs…last week I maintained…this week – I lost 3 lbs! YAY! (small victories!)
I’m doing this as a way to help hold myself accountable and hope to maybe inspire some of you to jump on the bandwagon with me! 🙂
I’m on sparkpeople and was a few years ago – lost a nice amount of weight…but gained it back. Its time for me to get back into some sort of exercise routine and watch what I eat.
If you are on sparkpeople – I’m also graciousluck there, find me, lets be friends! 🙂
I decided to take on a challenge today – the 30 Day Plank Challenge.
Every week – I’ll update you on how its going, but it starts off with holding a plank position for 20 seconds. I’m not going to lie…I could barely make it 10 but I paused, and did it for another 10. My whole mid section was shaking – thats how out of shape I am!
As I’m post these weekly updates – I’d love hear from you – my awesome readers!
This weeks GL Gets Fit question is – What is your favorite healthy snack to keep around? I’m a snacker and would love some ideas to try, especially ones I can grab on the go and take to work!
