75 Hard Challenge…

A week ago I decided that I was going to take my weight loss seriously and started fasting and I did great, I lost almost 2 pounds in one week! I have heard about 75 hard from a friend of mine when it first came out last year. Back then I was like I can’t do this, it’s too much work for me and so I never tried. However, I was listening to Andy Friesland who came up with this challenge and something clicked in me that this is what I have to try and do. So I started 75 hard just yesterday, Saturday August 29, 2020 weighing at 293.0 lbs.

The diet I am following is obviously intermittent fasting and cutting down on carbs and sugar by 50% as those are my addictions. I am doing 2 work outs one of course is outside. You have to read nonfiction/self development books during this challenge so I am currently reading “Girl, wash your face” by Rachel Hollis. I am drinking my gallon of water which has been the most challenging part for me and am also taking progress photos every single day! Here’s the thing with this challenge though, if you mess up or forget to do one of these things or don’t fully complete them for one day, you have to start from day 1 all over again!

To be quite honest, I really don’t know if I will be able to complete this everyday for the next 75 days but I am willing to try my very hardest! I really hope I can finish it though and see big changes in me, physically and mentally!

Have you heard of 75 hard? Have you done it?

A book that has inspired me…

IMG_5879

A while back I was kinda obsessed with Khloe Kardashian and got her book “Strong looks better naked,” and loved it. It inspired and motivated me to work out, work on my health, my body and to just put myself first. I remember I was on my fitness and healthy lifestyle journey for a good few months after reading that book and then I fell off the wagon. Since then I haven’t really picked up the book again, or maybe I did once after that but only read a few chapters only. I think I will pick it up again and reread it to see if it will again give me that motivation that inspiration to get myself back on track since I have been so off since this whole coronavirus started.

What is one book that has inspired you???
