Another pinterest challenge?

Okay – I am totally lazy and without motivation…. I sit here on the couch writing this with an extremely yummy eggnog latte balancing on my knee! ( first off the season – do not judge!)

I need a change! I have some super cute clothes just waiting for me to skin down and slide into!! I need to focus on me a bit – any other able to relate?

So what does one do when faced with a challenge…. You turn to your pinterest boards! We all have one – dedicated to healthy recipes, weightloss tips, exercise regimes that are sure things, and silly motivation posters!

Take my challenge – turn those pins into realities! Try the diet, do the exercise, believe the posters!!!

I will let you know how it goes and leave you with this to start us off!

WA Day 2

Well… not much to report really! Although I am amazed by the response yesterdays post got! So many people messaged me or commented with great tips and kind words of encouragement!

One thing I have read alot in my search for weight loss tips is the importance of BREAKFAST! I am horrible at eating breakfast!! I do eat in the mornings… but ususally LATE morning…. like sometimes almost lunch! I am going to be making a HUGE effort in having a healty awesome breakfast everymorning. So lets hear about your favorite breakfast options!

ALSO I have started a pinterest board dedicated to this adventure – I will be pinning any recipes, workout regimes or encouraging words that I come across. Here is the link – http://pinterest.com/kristen_leclair/weight-loss-adventure/ be sure to check it out and hopefully you will find some inspiration there! *Disclaimer* Like most things I have pinned – I havnt gone to the source of each pin SO if you click it and you go somewhere lame or inappropriate I am not to blame!

Here is a funny I came across

Weight Loss Adventure!

I need to lose weight. Not only for my own selfish desire to look a certain way, BUT also for my health. As it turns out I am borderline obese for my age and height. So today is the first day of my weight loss “Adventure”. I am calling it an adventure is hopes of tricking myself into thinking that this is going to be fun! But knowing myself and how much I HATE dieting I know it is going to be a challenge for sure!!

So according to http://www.yourhealthyweight.ca/ (which is the website that I used for my calculations) my BMI is at 29 which indicates I am over my healthy weight. I should be between 111lbs and 150lbs. I also should ideally have a waist circumference of 35in or less, which I do not! (I will post my stats at the end). Apparently a bigger waist circumference has more importance than just the unflattering belly flab – it is a major factor is alot of bad things like diabetes, stokes and hypertension!

So here are my stats! The measurements may not have been done in the exact correct way BUT I will do them the same everytime so it will be ok!

  • Height: 5ft 5inches
  • Weight: 171
  • (I thought I was 180 – so I am already off to a good start!) 
  • Hips: 40
  • Waist: 38
  • Bust: 40
  • BMI: 29

Here are my ideals!

  • Weight: 135lbs
  • Hips: 36
  • Waist: 32
  • Bust: 36
  • BMI: 23

Now I know it might seem like quite the undertaking BUT I am giving myself a year to accomplish this. Which I think is realistic… right?? I need to lose about 40 pounds… and some inches. The inches part was hard to set goals for because I don’t really know what would be a good fit for me. So we will see.

So HERE WE GO! I will be posting about this at least once a week – letting you know how it is going. If you have any advise or tips on healthy recipes, or exercise routines PLEASE SHARE THEM!! I will need all the help I can get! 

FYI – One thing I am refusing to give up during this time – my morning caffeine fix! I want my children to survive this!

*The website I used is pretty good – I am sure there are tons out there you can use. It is important to remember that these sites DO NOT take the place of a doctors consultation!*
