So I signed up for this challenge to inspire you guys to lose some weight. It is a free online challenge done by Priceline pharmacy. One of the things we have to think about are the goals. They talk about having a SMART goal such as losing 80kgs within the year and not within the month. In 2014 I had put on so much weight that I really wanted to lose it.
Lose it, I did by going lots to the gym and really trying. I didn’t do the fad diets and lose the weight within a week. But I did it long term. At first gym and exercise seemed like a chore but then after seeing the results, I wanted more. I slept better
Think about why you want to lose the weight? Is it because of some health issue or because you want to fit into those clothes? Or is it because you want to look like some actress or fashion model that you see on TV.
I went to the Priceline Pharmacy in Highpoint and got my free scan. Here it said that I weigh 51.3 kg and I had 25% body fat. They say that this is normal for women my age. But my heart age is 3 years older. I wonder why. They also say that my blood sugar and cholesterol are at risk. I wonder why seeing as I don’t eat a lot of processed sugars. My nutrition is only 60%. I, sometimes only have one piece of toast and milk before I get out the door and then more breakfast such as eggs. Let’s see how I can better that. Sleep is at 47% but I know why. Is because I don’t sleep so well when it is humid.
I consume not enough cholesterol according to myfitnesspal.
My pantry is at least void of all the junk food except for the popcorn which isn’t mine and the cake decorating stuff which is also not mine.
As for stress, it adds to the weight gain. People who stress a lot and don’t exercise enough crave sweet and fatty foods. When I stress about things I either blog or listen to music. I would love to have less stress in my life and lessen the rate of obesity in the world which is caused by stress among other things. I want more time for myself and just relax by the beach. I am healthy and sometimes the happiest when I am at the gym mucking around. I am also the happiest when I achieve a lot of things. I have a lot of cortisol when assignments and deadlines are due. Cortisol is a stress hormone.
