Finding Greater Joy

5% Winter Challenge: This will be my fourth 5% challenge, and I haven't lost an ounce yet. It's not for lack of trying though. Those are the same words I started the last challenge with, and they'll stay until I figure this out. Still not backing down.

5% Winter Challenge: This will be my fourth 5% challenge, and I haven't lost an ounce yet. It's not for lack of trying though. Those are the same words I started the last challenge with, and they'll stay until I figure this out. Still not backing down.

This journey is about becoming a better, healthier version of myself (my name is Joy). By adding healthy habits, I have become more energized and engaged in life, and I am finding a greater version of myself. At the same time, I will be en"joy"ing my life in a way I havent in many years. I want to find great joy in the everyday, not get bogged down, but take pleasure in the hectic life I'm privileged to live.

My 5% plan - Nutrition: moving to more vegetarian meals while trying to get enough protien. Balancing my plate better and avoiding refined carbs/sugar as much as possible. More whole foods and less processed. Exercise: I've recently add weight training, so I am trying to mix cardio and resistance in a circuit style of exercise since straight cardio just wasn't cutting it for me.
