Boot Camp

So after almost 2 1/2 years, I am finally signing up for an exercise class.  I’ve been wanting to lose some weight to help me feel strong and have more energy for my kids, but I also wanted the health benefits, reducing my blood sugar levels, etc.  I managed to lose my baby weight, so currently I’m at pre-baby weight, which is big for me.

To get there I did the following:

  • Reduced processed foods
  • Reduced carb intake through bread/tortillas/roti
  • Stopped drinking beverages with sugar
  • Reduced my sweets intake
  • Walk every day with my coworkers for 1/2 hour
  • Do my spinal health exercises daily
  • Reduced food intake

Now I’ve been stuck at this point for a few weeks, and I have two goals.  The first goal is to reduce my BMI to normal, which is (18.5–24.9).  I am currently at 25.4 (pre-baby), so it has improved, but to get in that range, I will need to lose another 5 lbs (marriage).

In order to lose more, I joined a Boot Camp that runs twice a week, and I believe it has jolted my body out of its plateau because I’m back down to my lowest weight during my weight loss journey.  My second goal is to lose another 5 lbs after that, which would take me to a healthy weight (college).

I want to stay accountable to myself, so I am posting this in hopes that I will keep track of my thoughts and what I want to do.

Goals:

  • Keep reducing processed foods

Inspired!

It’s holiday time again, and that means that advertising will be going crazy again.  I don’t particularly like advertising but it is great to see what the ad executives think will sell products.  Kinetic typography is used a lot, and it makes me want to tackle a new project, but I think that with my current time constraints, I won’t have time to explore a big project.  It might be fun to tackle another 30 second clip to keep up on my skills and work on some of the issues that I had when designing some of my older projects.

More on this later.
