Lurong Living 5 week Challenge

Nearly three years ago when I signed up for a 90-day challenge [one year later] I didn't realize how out of shape I was. Of course, I thought I was super healthy but numbers don't lie. Three years and a baby later I'm ready for another challenge. Although, I've lost all the baby weight my goal is to get the best body I can. We're going to Hawaii in four months, eek!

Let's start with some before photos. I don't know about you, but I love a good before and after photo!

I'm just rocking leggings and a sports bra, but I think it's a good before. Don't worry I snapped a few in my bikini for the final comparison. ;)

Weight: 130 lbs, (1/17) Although, the gym scale says 128 lbs ... I'm not sure I believe it.
Height: 5'3"
BMI: I really wish I knew. I'm going to see if I can find someone who knows how to measure BMI. This is what really matters.

-  Drop inches [I'm not worried about the number on the scale. Muscle weighs more than fat]
-  Get back to eating nearly 100% paleo/clean
-  Increase overall strength
-  CORE [enough said]

100% Paleo! Yup, no diary, grains or alcohol. I plan on recapping my meals so stay tune. Interested in what I'm eating? Leave a comment with your email.

Crossfit and Spin... I don't count walking the dog or skiing/snowboarding as a 'workout.' The plan is to workout 7-8 times a week. This means there will be a few double days. How do I make this happen? Workouts usually happen before 7 a.m. If it's a double day I sneak in another after the hubby gets home from work. This also allows for a little one-on-one daddy daughter time. I think it's good for both of them.

There you have it -- another challenge. God, I love a good challenge. I'm an all or nothing person so I can't wait to see my after photos!

Stay tune! I plan on posting various updates, meals and tips along the way.


  1. I think you look great as you are but I am sure you will do great on the challenge. Btw love the sports bra. I have those and they are my go to sports bras.

  2. Good luck to you, lady! Honestly, I think inches are a better measurement of health than BMI. My husband, who is in shape and very muscular is technically 'obese' due to BMI measurements which is quite laughable.

    1. Thanks. It's really crazy how that works out. My brother is the same way.

  3. Way to go girl! You have totally got this! <3 Love your goals.

  4. I love that you have firm health and fitness goals! I admire anyone who can do Paleo. I cannot live without dairy and grains. Haahaa. With this fitness challenge you'll be rocking that bikini when you hit the beach in Hawaii. :-)

  5. Good luck on your challenge! I look forward to following it! I recently am doing Pure Barre classes. As of yesterday, I did my 10th class. Today I'm taking a two day break after doing it for 5 days so far I'm feeling a difference in my waist line and I feel better in my clothes :-).

    1. I've always wanted to try Pure Barre! That's awesome that you're already seeing results! Keep it up.

  6. Best of luck! You sound extremely driven, so I'm excited to hear about your journey! I've started working out again, but have a bit of trouble when I don't have a goal in mind. I need to find one soon!
