Starting a health journey on the first of the month can be a powerful way to harness the energy of new beginnings and set yourself up for success. That's why I've decided to kickstart my health journey today on June 1st, with the goal of being the healthiest I have ever been by my 50th birthday on October 1st.
I'm really happy that I lost over 75 lbs 6 years ago through our program. It absolutely changed my life and I am excited for the next chapter.
How it started
How its going
I have maintained the same weight for the last year and want to transition to ultra health. I'm currently 193 lbs with 20% body fat and a BMI of 28, I feel strong but could definitely increase my muscle mass. Below are some images from most recent Styku scan
My goal is to lose 15 lbs of fat and have a weight of 175, with a body fat percentage lower than 15%. I also want to be strong and fit enough to enjoy my active lifestyle, which includes hiking multiple 14ers, biking, kayaking, paddleboarding and other activities. I want to be in better physical shape at 50 than I was at 25. I also want to be confident in my physique at the beach or pool.
Over the next 120 days, I know that I will need to be disciplined in my nutrition and exercise habits, as well as my mindset. This means making healthy food choices, tracking my macros especially my protein, and staying within my calorie goals. It also means committing to a consistent exercise routine 6 days a week , including strength training and cardio. But perhaps most importantly, it means cultivating a positive and resilient mindset.
I know that there will be days when I feel discouraged or unmotivated, but I am committed to pushing through those moments and staying focused on my goals. I will remind myself of why I started this journey in the first place, and the many benefits that come with being healthy and fit.
To help me stay accountable and motivated, I will be tracking my progress in a daily journal and celebrating my successes along the way. I will also be seeking support from friends and family, and connecting with others who are on a similar journey.
I'm sharing this journey with you because I want to be accountable. I know that if I share my goals with others, I'm more likely to stick with them. I'm also hoping to inspire others to start their own health journeys.
If you're thinking about starting a health journey, I encourage you to go for it! It's never too late to make a change. Just remember to start small, be patient, and don't give up. You can do it!
