Here are my measurements:
I hate how little difference there is between my hips and waist. It makes me feel so unfeminine
My goals ~To run/walk a sub 45 min 5k, To kick my bad habit of sneaking food up to bed to eat (I'm only hurting myself!) and to get in 10 minutes a day of exercise even if it's just rocking out to some tunes
Start weight ~ 262
One Voice (7/25) ~254
Relaxation (8/15) ~247
Labor Day (9/3) ~244
World Heart (9/29) ~240
Total loss aim ~22
My Eating Habits:
I am definitely eating for the body I have and not the one I want. I am the best at justifying just this one meal, day, week, weekend, month, life...
I am going back to vegetarian during the week and allow meat on the weekends. My weight started to move the wrong way the moment I reintroduced meat into my diet. If I'm a responsible vegetarian and I keep all the processed packaged foods to the bare minimum I'll have this thing in the bag!
My Body Idols:
I'm not a country music fan, but I appreciate Miranda Lambert for looking like a normal human being
I also really love that actress Ayla Kell looks healthy and not emaciated like far too many young actresses
And finally, I really can't stand her as a person, but Hope Solo is a phenomenal athlete and a fantastic fitness role model
I don't have to love her to admire her kickin' bod
As part of this challenge we need to do two things that took us out of our comfort zone. These are mine
1: I actually wore a sleeveless shirt out in public. This is very rare behavior for me, but it's hotter than the basement of hell outside and I just decided that I couldn't care anymore. It really wasn't that bad. Nobody threw fruit or anything!
2: I did a wii zumba workout with just a bra on and in front of DH no less. I have this irrational fear that I look like a total geek doing the zumba moves and Tony will see my clumsy attempt at dancing and decide he's no longer attracted to me. I just don't like exercising in front of him. No comments from him, but a few inappropriate hand placements from him showed me I shouldn't worry about it in the future ;)
Finally, I need to show a photo of myself at the beginning of this challenge. This is me before the infamous wii zumba incident. Certainly not my proudest moment or best look
