My Weekly Goals:

  1. Start getting active goals achieved.
  2. Start exercising at least 30 minutes a day
  3. Remember to keep logging everything.

Overall Goals:

  1. Burn 500 calories a day
  2. 15 active minutes a day
  3. Walk a mile a day or half an hour exercise a day.
  4. 5,000 steps a day.

Current Weight: 233

I didn’t lose a lot of weight, but I lost more than I thought I would. My eating and exercise habits have been not the greatest. I’ve been more focused on getting everything ready for the convention I’m going to be attending. This will be my last post for this segment until August 17th. I’ll post my activity from between now and then on that blog. I’m also going to include steps. I have a app that helps me keep track of steps that I plan to use. Because of this, I’ve added a new goal to my overall goals. I don’t really walk around as much as I should, so I’m making my current goal 5,000 steps a day. Once I can do that with no effort, I plan to increase it to 10,000 steps a day.

Goal: Burn 500 Calories a Day

July 20th: 396
July 21st: 667
July 22nd: 473
July 23rd: 693

I’ve really done a horrible job with keeping this updated. I’ve also not really done a great job at keeping up with my goals. I’ve had too many days where I chose what is easier over doing the right thing. That stops now. I am going to do better with this. I’ll be posting every week. Even if I don’t have great results. Maybe this will help me hold myself more accountable.

I haven’t been successful with my active minutes or exercise. I will be doing better with that from here forward. I am sure that doing this blog will really help me. It will help keep me accountable for my actions. It will help me eat and exercise better. Hopefully, I’ll even be able to find a weight loss buddy or three. We will see!

Losing my job has taken a toll on me. During work, I would use my desk elliptical frequently during the day. I’ll have to find a way to use it even though I’m not working. I’ll also need to find a way to make sure I’m more active every day as well. I have some dance games on my Switch. I’m hoping to try to at do them every other day. I’d prefer every day, but baby steps. I know this is a minor set back. I’ll get back on track. I have faith!

I haven’t hit active minutes ever. I’m looking into more ways to be more active. I have bought a few games that should help with it. But we will see. I’d also like to start walking around more and getting more steps in. I’m still making great progress considering. I have a long way to go, but I’m getting there. I have 105.6 pounds to go!

Quick note and reintroduction:

I started this a couple months back. The problem was I got in my head and didn’t think I was good enough. I also lacked the proper tools to track everything the way I need to. I am now able to weigh myself with a smart scale. I also keep track with how much water I drink and the foods I’m eating every day. I even have a stationary elliptical for under my desk. I recently acquired a Switch and got some dance games on it too for exercise. I’m really excited to put that in motion.

My name is Nikkie. I’m taking a slow and steady path to losing weight. I don’t care how long it takes. I also plan to wear dresses until I achieve my desired weight and can buy a whole new wardrobe all at once. I currently weigh 232.8. When I started a few months ago, I weighed about 240. I’ve already lost some weight and that’s before I even officially started trying! I think that’s pretty amazing!

My Weekly Goals:

  1. Start getting active goals achieved.
  2. Start exercising at least 30 minutes a day
  3. Remember to keep logging everything.

Overall Goals:

  1. Burn 500 calories a day
  2. Get up and move around 12 times a day
  3. 30 active minutes a day

Ideally, I’d like to get up to 10,000 steps a day, but that’s a work in progress. I’ll get there eventually I’m sure. I’d eventually like to get a treadmill I can use every day. We’ll see how that goes.

Thank you for reading this. If you’re on the weight loss journey as well, I’d love to hear about your progress as well! Blessed be!

My Weekly Plans:

I have really failed at starting this very badly. I don’t have a scale. I don’t really have transportation to get to a gym or membership for a gym right now. I’m working on workarounds though. I’ve decided that I will log all of my meals and my water intake. I also plan on logging my exercise. Each week will contain my log for each three. I’m not going to consider any week a pass or a fail. If I did any progress, I’ll accept it. Once I get a scale, I’ll also place my current weight.

My Introduction:

My name is Nikkie. I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. I have gone on diets quite a few times over the year. I just kind of stopped. I never really followed trends. Just watched what I ate more and tried to exercise. I have an issue with my lower back that gets painful after I’ve walked or done anything physical for a certain amount of time. It does put a big damper on working out. I’m working on finding a way to take care of that.

My Overall Goals:

I want to get down to 125. My current weight is 230. I know this will take a good year or two. I’m okay with that. I also want to try to completely make myself over once I’ve lost the weight.

Goals for the Coming Week:

Try to exercise at least 3 days of the week.
Stay strict about my food routine.
Try to get a scale and some workout equipment.
Maintain a food diary.
Lose 2 pounds.

Initial Thoughts:

I’m very nervous about posting these every week. I do think they will help hold me accountable to where I actually stick to my plan as much as humanly possible. I know that set backs are going to happen. I am not going to let that hold me back from achieving my goal by the end of 2022.
