80 Day Challenge - Day 19
19. Are you losing weight the healthy (<2lbs/week) or the unhealthy (>2lbs/week) way?
I am definitely trying to lose weight the healthy way. But currently I’m not losing weight, but I seem to be replacing fat with muscle. I’ve stayed the same weight for a while, but my measurements have gotten smaller. This is just as great to me as simply dropping pounds.

18. Try to use as little salt as possible today or maybe even none! Don’t buy microwave meals and don’t eat foods high in sodium.
No. I have hypotension, and my doctor has advised I add salt to my diet every day because I don’t get enough sodium. Salt is as much part of a healthy diet as fats ans sugar. There is a difference, though, between adding a bit of salt over a homecooked meal made from fresh ingredients, and having a high sodium intake from processed food. Everything in moderation, and try to eat clean.

17. Do you have a special event/date you want to lose the weight for?
Nope. Just trying to be the healthiest me.
80 Day Challenge - Day 16
16. Which part of your body do you wish to change the most and why?
To be honest, I really dislike this question. A year ago I would have asked where you wanted me to start, and I’d have had a list mentioning something about nearly every body part.
Now? I’ve tried really hard to accept the way I’m built and focus on strengthening and defining muscle instead.
Do I want to change my legs? Yes. If I could, I’d want them to be long and thin, with small calves and thighs. But I don’t have long legs. I have lots of muscle in my calves. I carry most of my weight in my hips and thighs.
So I can talk about how much I’d like to change my legs, but the ideals I’d built up are impossible for me to achieve. I’ll make myself sick trying to get to a place it is physically impossible for me to go.
I could say the same about every other bit of me.
So this question should really be “Which part of you do you wish to enhance the most?”. And to that I’d have to say my self esteem. (but also all the rest of me too.)
