Hello everyone and welcome to week 17 in the quest of a few internet friends who are trying to get healthy! We want to motivate one another and help each other get on the right track by working out, eating right, and reaching a great state of mind in the process. Join us weekly as we share our personal journey’s and stats to show you all that if we can do it, so can you!
So again I did not have time to measure (ie I forgot to measure, so yeah…..) Things have been crazy busy with TKD testing coming up. I get to test tonight so I will be happy to get that off my plate! My daughter tests on Saturday and she is super excited. We leave for vacation (camping) on Sunday and I have devised a workout and food plan that will fit IIFYM and my lifting schedule. I know it seems silly but this is a lifestyle change, not just a diet and I need to keep at it to be successful! I found my maxes on my deadlifts (165) and bench presses (65) this week too. I am going to work hard to hit those numbers and get stronger! You can tweet me if you ever want to chat @Sarindre.

GOOD NEWS: I LOST FIVE POUNDS
BAD NEWS: I GAVE UP BREAD PASTA POP PROCESSED FOODS HAPPINESS LIFE
Okay, I may be over exaggerating just a tad! But yes, I have started a low carb diet. Since I stopped drinking pop + cut out most processed foods, I’ve dropped 5lbs.
Another thing, I joined a gym. Finally. I have a lot of anxiety with doing new things by myself, and well I just said “Screw being unhealthy and fat, I’m gonna do this!” So I did. I meet with a personal trainer in a few days to take my measurements, so next week I will have those for you.
I meal plan now, and cook everything. I shop three times a week at Aldis to avoid Walmart (I LOVE their clearance section!) because I’m over spending. So far eating processed free has cost me $50 this week. I still have two days of shopping, but the whole chicken I cooked last night is probably going to last me a few meals if I freeze it. Which will save time and be fantastic!
I’ve been purchasing fruit that’s on sale – Aldis has Kiwi on sale for 89 CENTS. For 6. You can’t beat that, seriously. I also purchased protein powder from Walmart to help with my protein goals.
I’m doing this, you’re doing this, we can do this!

I fell behind a little on my weight goal, but weight alone really isn’t the point. I know I was getting after it with my workouts, and I just need to be a leetle more conscious of what I’m eating. I followed through with my plan to make it to the gym three times last week. On day 1, I lifted, focusing on chest, upper back, core, and legs. On day 2, I ran 5 miles outside. Day 3 I lifted again focusing on arms, shoulders, core, and legs. We had another soccer game on Sunday, and even though I’m still not where I want to be, I could feel that I’ve made a lot of progress over the past few months. Plan is to stick with the workout regimen and try to eat a little healthier this week.
Hey everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a great week!! Mine has been filled with ups and downs, but thankfully my eating stayed on point! I officially weigh in on Wednesday’s but as of today I’m 175!! I’m 10 lbs from my goal that I’ve set for July!! My mom said she’d get me an awesome bike if I hit it before she gets here!! Mission on wink emoticon My sons birthday is this weekend so wish me luck on just sampling the Cake and not binging it later at night lol.
