Re: Healthy Habits Week of 9/30

  • I hope it's OK that I started this lol.

    What healthy habit/s are you working on? 
    Maintaining my weight, getting stronger, transitioning to intuitive eating after a decade of macro tracking

    How's everything going?
    My weight went up a little bit, so I'm trying to be more mindful. I'm still in my 5-pound maintenance range, but I'm just trying to focus more on whole foods and not eating half a box of cereal for breakfast......

    What’s a “small win” you have from last week?
    Not small - I PRed my squat! I finally got those 45-pound plates on the bar and squatted 135 pounds for 3 reps. My next goal is bodyweight -- I currently weigh 140-145, so I'm basically there, but I wanted to spread out the PRs/goals lol. This means my squat is nearly to the same level as my deadlift! ...now if I could just bench literally anything lol. Or do a pull-up...

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus point for pics! If you don't have any pets, would you ever get a pet? What kind?
    I have 2 cats: Buzzy & Luna! 
    Buzzy is my 13-year-old orange tabby; Luna is my 9-year-old tortie. They are super friendly & even people who don't like cats end up liking them lol. They act like dogs.

    I also used to foster cats - I'd like to return to doing that soon if I can just figure out where to keep them in our new house.

    Oh, and we have a "bonus cat" - our neighbor's cat who loves to come and hang out w/ us.

    Pic of my babies!

  • @saladflambe Of course it's ok!!! :) 

    What healthy habit/s are you working on? Eating low-carb, tracking, running

    How's everything going? Pretty well. I stayed keto throughout the awful girls' dinner, my entree ended up being a plate of lettuce with dressing and parmesan and like 4 slices of chicken breast. I ate keto ice cream when I came home. :D 

    What’s a “small win” you have from last week? I saw another small drop on the scale, which was nice to finally see. I also have gotten back into my morning workout routine, which makes me feel better all-around, so it's worth it!

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus point for pics! If you don't have any pets, would you ever get a pet? What kind? I have one cat Clancy and one dog Rosie. Pic of Rosie below, she's such a goof but she is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

    @leslierachel350 You are definitely on the wrong board. Please move to your correct board and refrain from flaunting your pregnancy to a board of women TRYING to get pregnant.

    @saladflambe really glad you started this :)

    What healthy habit/s are you working on?

    Trying to make yoga a part of my normal routine because I was recommended to incorporate some sort of exercise. I figured yoga was the most effective yet appropriate. I also hear a lot of women talking about the keto diet and I don't know if I should go on it. Any advice?

    How's everything going?

    Not too good, pregnancy has been kinda rough for me. I get all these mood swings, nausea, and morning sickness, and then my husband is across the country so I can't really turn to him for help. But I'm trying to find some healthy habits to get into and get advice from my mom and other women. Maybe that'll help.

    What’s a “small win” you have from last week?

    I only gained 2 lbs!

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus point for pics! If you don't have any pets, would you ever get a pet? What kind?

    I don't but I have always wanted a dog, like a huge furry labradoodle. They're SOOOO cute😍 Maybe I'll get one a little bit after the baby is born

    OMG I am so so sorry I didn't read this properly at all. My mistake I should've been more careful. My apologies to everyone on here again.
  • last week, I PRed my squat and did 135 pounds for 3 reps using a pad on the bar for comfort.

    This week, I did 135 for 5 easy reps followed by 145 for 3 reps. No pad.

    I weigh 141 right now, so I am officially squatting over bodyweight!
