Get Fit Friday · An Introduction (featuring Workout Memes)

November 13, 2020

Hi there. :)

Welcome to a new series on here that's going to cause me to post on here at least once a week. 
Last December, I hopped on the scale and I reached the highest weight I have ever been. Fast forward 11 months where I thought I'd emerge from a quarantine cocoon a fit little butterfly. 
Yet, I am still a caterpillar.

But, that's all going to change because I have one year (roughly) until my mom's Halloweekend 2021 wedding and I don't want to be so close to this weight anymore. 

Starting Sunday 11/13, my goal is to lose 70 pounds in the next year.

(a disclaimer, I don't believe in diet culture, but this made me laugh.)

I think this is plausible, especially with a blog to keep me accountable and countless other resources at my fingertips. Not to mention an end goal, which I've never had before. My thinking within this last year has been, "This is going to be a lifestyle change, it's going to take some time so I'm in no hurry." That caused me to not make the changes I should be using and using the unlimited time/lifestyle change as an excuse.

Each week, I'm going to update with my FitBit stats, calorie count, and weight for each day. Along with any outside resources: apps, challenges, etc., that I'm working through and trying. This first post is going to be an overview of where I'm starting, minus my weight because I'll be weighing in on Sunday, so I will post my starting weight next week. 

Five things to note at the beginning:

· I'm 5'9.

· I have PCOS. 

· I will be counting calories, sugar intake, and carbs.

· Due to CoVid, I won't be going to the gym. I've got a treadmill at home and have recently ordered an indoor cycling bike (I started cycling this year and I love it.) All workouts will be done at home. To track my workouts, I will be using Matt D'Avella's Two Day Rule for the next thirty days along side DietBet.

· I'm kicking this off with a DietBet. That was my biggest motivator when I got into this last time, and I'd like to do one each month.

That's about all I've got for this post, just a short introduction to what to expect within the next year. You're all here to hold me accountable, so thank you. :)
