April Challenges Day 8

Guys, okay, So, before i tell you all about my challenges, I really just want to say that I am really accomplished with what I have accomplished this week. I have stayed with the 30 Day Shred, only skipped posting for 2 days, and only one day have i eaten over my calorie budget. Also, you all know my habits in posting, and that a post a week is usually good. But this month I’ve posted 12 posts, and have gotten over 700 views this month. Which will soon surpass my 830 in June. To be honest, I’m loving posting every day and the support i am getting from all of you. So thank you!

Anyway, Day 8 is my workout routine.

Well, I get up at 5;20-5:30 and do the 30-Day Shred. Now that it’s getting nicer outside, I’ll be taking my dogs for walks at night because, well, it’s nice outside.

One more thing before departing, Holy arm muscle batman. It’s ironic because I’ve never seen/read batman. Anyway, My arms (left in particular) is very defined and my bicep is actually hard. Whoa, it’s great!

April Challenges Days 5-7

Hello! Well, I have been absent for the past few days. Friday- I spent about 5 hours working on a manual (we named him Manuel) for the kids in rouser next year. We stayed up until 1:30 in the morning so, I wasn’t going to post. I don’t really remember why I didn’t post yesterday. I think I didn’t feel like turning my computer on, and today, I went to the Cubs game. They lost, 10-7 in the 10th inning to the giants. We were winning 4-1 in the fifth, until the giants scored four and it just went down from there. Well, I have been continuing the 30 Day Shred. Friday, at dinner, some Creme Brulee was practically shoved down my throat so there goes that challenge. My knee has been getting rather angry with my excessive squat doing, so I’m taking a break from that as well, so I don’t end up on crutches once more. And, anyway after the Cubs game which where we were sitting (which was sunless) and about 45 degrees, we stepped out of Wrigley field and pulled off our fleeces and gloves because it was 72 outside. It was great. When we got home, I took my dog for about a two-mile walk.

Day 5- Why do you really want to lose weight? Are you doing it for you?

  • I really don’t know why I started. Ever since 7th grade, I have wanted to weight about 140-145 pounds. And now that I’ve lost 40 pounds, why not get to my goal weight.
  • I am doing it for me. I mean, my confidence level went from a -10 to a 5 sometimes higher and i want that to keep increasing

Day 6- Do you binge?If so, explain why you think you do this.

  • For the longest time I never knew what this meant… but i probably have. I don’t really know. Are there times when I’m just so hungry, I could possibly eat a whale. Yes, when this happens, I try to eat healthy foods or one piece of bread, and then just give myself 10 or 20 minutes. If I’m still hungry after then, I eat more, if not, I don’t eat more.

Day 7- Do your parents know you are trying to lose weight? Do they care?

  • My parents know I have lost weight, They know I workout every morning. I don’t know if they think I am trying to get thinner or healthier or what, I don’t know if they know for sure. Do they care? I assume they are happy for what I’ve accomplished

Happy Shredding

April Challenges Day 3

Well, a whole day later than last week. What an accomplishment.

30 Day Shred- Done

60 Squats- 15 more, I’ll do them after I post this.

No Junk Food Challenge- Woot Woot, Day 2

30 Days of Weight Loss Challenge- A picture of my thinspiration…. I don’t have one. I don’t want to look like someone, I want to be myself in the end. Sure are their parts of celebrities I enjoy and sure would want, but there is not one singular person, I desire to be.

Well, all for today

Happy Shredding

April Challenges Day 1… Round 2

Well my friends. Through my week of absence I have finally found the reason I have not once completed the 30 Day Shred. Like I am doing now with my English homework, I procrastinate. WhenΒ  I wait until 10 O’Clock and night to do the 30 Day Shred, I have a better chance of not doing it, or doing it poorly, than actually trying. So, I have devised a plan on how I can do the 30 Day Shred, my No Junk Food Challenge which will start tomorrow, the 30 days of weight loss answering of questions, and the squat challenge. Ready for this?

Alright, Well, I’ll just give you my last night into today and we’ll talk about it

Well, last night I set an alarm for 5:20 and 5:30. Then, well normally I go to sleep at 8. “go to sleep.” By sleep, I mean lay in my bed and screw around on my phone until 11 and then sleep. Well, last night I was asleep before nine and alert and ready to go for my workout when my alarm went off at 5:20. So, I got out of bed, put my workout gear on, and did the 30 Day Shred… at 5:30 in the morning. I don’t remember doing this, but it happened. And, well it seems to me that I can’t do anything without getting injured. You see, it was Circuit 3 and I was going from chest flies to anterior raises and a side lunge when my knee rubbed against the floor. I figured it was just a rug burn so I kept going. After making the transition from the lunges back down to the floor, my knee caressed the floor and I smeared my blood on the carpet. It’s really great… just kidding.

Well that’s that. afterwards I make three hard-boiled eggs for myself. Just wanting to cleanse my body I did a face mask from Lush, they’re heavenly and showered. By the time I was done getting ready for school I had 20 minutes to spare so I just sat there on my couch, relaxing, something I usually don’t get to do in the morning.

Well, school… was school. English we were supposed to be blogging, blogging about the homework I didn’t do, which I have to do after I publish this post, then in yearbook class which my friend and I are…. Wait for it…. THE CO-EDITOR IN CHIEFS of the 2013-2014 yearbook. Woot, Any who, Yeah we had to give the kids in the class homework. I felt so in charge. That is, until they didn’t want to do it. But ehh, it’s due Thursday.

So, then the day went and went and it was fun and then lunch. Lunch was great. I was happily eating my apple until the giant centipede decided it would go for an afternoon stroll right where I was sitting (I was on the floor because my friends eat in the band room, so I eat there too at times). Yeah, the boys wouldn’t kill it and some girl didn’t want it dead, but then out of nowhere a girl hit it with her shoe, and it was dead, Alas, bye-bye buggy. Then, no one wanted to clean up the remains, so that was left for me. It’s only a bug, all is fine. I did lose my appetite however, picturing that crawling into my lunch box… GROSS

I am in AP Micro and MAcro econ so after school, I had to go to the lunch room for bubbling al of my answer keys (name, address, school, etc) so that when it came time for test taking, we could start bright and early. And that was my day.

So, I did finish my 50 squats, and the No Junk Food challenge commences tomorrow, and we’ll do day 1 of the whatever other challenge I’m doing.

Day 1

Stats:

Well, I’m 5’7″ and 163 pounds. That’s all.

Well, Happy Shredding
