Ok.. I don't think I've every completed ANY of Riestrella's challenges. :-( But I'm going to try at least one more time! Cannot give up!

I've been spinning out of control lately to the extent that I haven't even had the courage to step on a scale in months. And while I have no clue about my weight, it is painfully obvious that my body has turned to jello and my clothes are ridiculously tight. REALLY need to do something about this..

Exercise goals
1. Run once a week.
2. Use bicycle for groceries or social calls at least once a week.
3. Run twice a week.
4. Complete Ripped in 30
5. Participate in local 5K event
6. Complete fitness boot camp

Nutritional goals
1. Have two weekly veggie days
2. Drink 1,5 liters of water a day (get bottle)
3. No more coke!!


I am struggling to find more nutritional goals but will sleep on it. :-)

When is the challenge supposed to end?

Whenever you want it to end! It's here for people until they have completed their goals. It might be a while, but I hope it's worth it!

That's great! Since there's no strict time limit, I'll add completing a fitness boot camp at the top of my exercise pyramid. Ideally a luxury one in Thailand. Anyone want to join me?

I used to be on here (under a different username, lol! Figured new username for a fresh start!), and I really missed the Riestrella challenges! I'm soooo in!

Exercise:
1. C25K program!!! I love it!
2. Total Body Workout DVD 2x/week (A killer one from the 80's! Super cheesy but sooo effective!)
3. A daily 45 min light run/walk on treadmill.
4. Run a 5K!

Nutrition:
1. Cut WAY down on my Starbucks consumption. Down to once a week!!!
2. Eat a Big Salad for lunch daily.
3. Plan my meals and grocery shopping list.
4. Home cooked meals, for ALL my meals!!! (It's really NOT that hard.)

Bump.y I love the idea of doing a 80's workout video. I imagine it would make working out a hilarious experience!

I can't wait for this challenge to start! I've been reworking my goals a little bit because I have already been doing one of my nutritional goals for almost two weeks now.

Just one week to go!! Tweak your goals, put all your info on the spreadsheet and let's get ready to do this!! Are you looking forward to the challenge?

I've been getting used to working again after my 3 week holiday back in England, I think I'm finally over my jet lag after a few nights of uninterrupted sleep. I need to start tackling my to do list, so by next week I'll be ready to start my journey to my goal!!

Dott - So great to hear you've already begun to implement your goals! I personally can't wait for this challenge to start, it's about time I took control of my weight and make 2014 the year I reach my goal weight.

So I finally got around to drawing up my pyramids! I figured it would be nice to have a visual aid in front of my desk as well as the spreadsheet! Here they are, it's a bit of a poo picture but you get the jist:


Is anyone else planning on drawing up pyramids?

So I've been off 3fc for a while, was talking to my friend about weight loss today and realized that Riestrella's "bikini ready" challenge is supposed to be here now.. so I come to find it and find this instead. At first I was like.. what the heck is this?!? AND WHERE IS MY BIKINI READY CHALLENGE??

But after settling my change hating self down , I realized this will actually be an advantage because it's changing the lifestyle, not just attempting to lose weight. What a great idea Rie!!

Time to start thinking of ideas

Haha! Well I'm glad that you have come to like the challenge idea! There is still a weigh in option, so it can still be like the bikini challenge in a way but we'll be doing our best to stick to our goals to ensure that weight stays off for good!

Anyone a fan of Game of Thrones? I've just started to read the books after being a huge fan of the show since it aired! Getting pumped for season 4!

Riestrella, my husband and I are huge fans of Game of Thrones. I started to read the first book a few months ago. I haven't finished it yet, but I was surprised by how closely it followed the television series. It's pretty rare. My husband just finished rewatching the series to get ready for season 4 and decided he wanted to read the rest of the books so he just bought the box set a few days ago.

Getting super excited about this challenge. This week has been an uphill battle with my weight so I need a good kick in the pants. Uggh.
