Lost 16-18lbs since WFH. I’m back down to 200lbs now. Hoping to hit ~185 and stay that way! Starting to see my abs again:) and I feel soooo much better.

I’ve always been doing crossfit. I loosely say crossfit because I don’t always follow the time restraints like EMOMs and AMRAPs (I just can’t hang), but I like the movements. Snatches, deadlifts, thrusters, cleans, jerks, box jumps, toes to bar, etc. Pre-COVID, I would do 1 workout a day for 10 days straight and then rest day but when WFH started, I started 2-3 workouts per day and ran during my lunch break.

I’m very lucky to have a home gym so I should’ve lost weight sooner. My weight plates mock my fat ass when I don’t throw them around for a workout. I’ve also been trying various recipes to up my cooking game. Not focused on cooling healthy specifically but try to cut fat (pun intended) where I can.

Trust, if my fat boy/ dadbod body can do it, anyone can. I’ll be your biggest cheerleader!

🥳🥳🥳💪🏼

Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
