💜AUGUST 2019 CHALLENGE💜



Recommended Posts

Day 13:

Thanks to this challenge that is expanding my horizon, I went to muscle class instead of studio cycle at the gym today and I barely got to the 30mins mark before I begged off[emoji26][emoji26][emoji26][emoji26][emoji26][emoji22]. Luckily I was by the door so I stylishly snuck out!! THAT WAS HARD!!!!!!! I still hurt all over! Makes spin class look like babycakes!

Listen to a podcast: I didn't get to this. I do have a list that I made from suggestions on this forum.....hoping to get to it as I recuperate from surgery.

Best lie: hmmm......[emoji848][emoji848] my family knows not to include me in a lie or conspiracy as I give it up inadvertently! No joke! It takes energy and concentration that I occasionally lack.

That being said, I lied to a colleague who is a serious arrogant showboat that I couldn't attend an event he invited me to (which was primarily to show off) because I will be out of town!!....I don't regret the lie [emoji57]

Thanks Karen!! Don't know how I missed your comment. I LOVE "Bad moms"! One of my mommy and me night was spent watching that movie and I laughed so hard as we all could identify.

I hope you are feeling and doing better?? [emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

@Cheeseburgh I'd totally take that compliment. Your new age is 45!

That sounds amazing. You don't happen to have the list in a shareable format do you? If so, I'd be truly interested if it's not too much work...

Day 14. Well, went to the gym and chose the strength setting on the cardio machine so that was 30 minutes of that plus approximately 16 minutes of weights. I wanted to see what the cardio setting was like and I actually enjoyed it while getting my sweat on. I'm going to have to try them all now. Well, it's the middle of the week and a work day and not a good day for a day trip. I did make it to the dentist this morning for a crown but I don't suppose that counts. I'll have to think of something for this weekend...

Happy halfway day!

I’m soooo sore from strength training yesterday, no way I can do it today too. I am starting an every other day routine. Today I did cardio and I think we might actually go bowling tonight. I am a terrible bowler but I’m game to give it a whirl. I just want to get out of the house and off the couch.

I’ll count going to the bowling place as a day trip since I’ve never been there before!

Day 15. I did make it to the gym this morning and got my 30 minutes of cardio in. I didn't have time for anything else though. Color or paint? Well maybe I'll paint my nails tonight....but funny because I was thinking I really need to work on my office/studio room so that I can paint freely whenever the mood strikes. Or maybe, I'll play with my colored pencils this evening...hmmm. I'll let you know the results tomorrow. :)

I’m still beyond sore from that workout, I skipped weight lifting today again. I cringe even trying to sit down. I’m kind of mad at the trainer right now. I did do cardio, but a lot slower than usual.

Ill go to the gym tomorrow and use lighter weights. I probably will only do upper body, my legs are still incredibly sore. I’ll let the trainer know how sore I am if I see him.

I didn’t paint or color anything today!

Got admitted to hospital tonight but wanted to send one thing that I had meant to contribute to a 'B side' question asked with the past 10 days..lol I know, I am SOOO behind.

B side questions:

Best lie you’ve ever told:

When my family was living in Guam (Air Force brat) – it was the middle of the summer and I decided to try to get my younger brother to wake up faster so I tip-toed next to his bed and whispered in his ear “Santa Clause came!!”. I’ve never seen my brother move so fast. He was out of bed and into the living room before it dawned on him it wasn’t even Christmas time. That memory makes both of us laugh to this day although I still think he gets a “salty look” in his eye…LOL

Day 14:
Day trip: I took a day trip to work[emoji57] Its a 45Mins drive sans traffic so that ought to count.

I have not had the balls to return to muscle class so did some yin yoga last night and it felt "easy" after muscle class [emoji2]

Day 15:
My 8 year old is the artistic soul in the family. She drew a picture of Girl's scout troop logo that she wanted a cake made out of for their welcome party on Saturday. We both colored it together and she judged me and said I colored in the line 🤨

I'm not making it to the gym today because 1. I'm shockingly having mini freak out moments in anticipation of surgery tomorrow.
2. I'm shockingly tired/weak from clear liquid diet that I seriously only have to do a day before surgery!!! I'm making the Clear Liquids sugar free and I guess my body is just getting the memo![emoji25]

As I go into surgery, I want to dramatically take this moment to thank each and everyone of you. Can't describe the value of the support but I hope you can tell how sincerely grateful I am for ALL the words of wisdom, inspiration and motivation!![emoji120][emoji120][emoji120][emoji7][emoji7]

I pray I see you on the other side soon.[emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

      2. sillykitty

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
