Hey Ladies, I am just starting out and going through a separation so this month is going to be absolutely insane. I really think this will help me have some sort of balance. I am going to keep it simple but I hope to exceed my expectations!

January's Goal's

Start every day with stretching or yoga.
Stop eating chocolates and crap at the office.
Not lose it mentally
Make it through a Bikram session!
I have no idea what my weight loss goal should be since I have been away from the game for a year now. I hope I will lose without trying too hard due to the stress so I am just going to see what happens and re-evaluate for February.

January's Workout/progress Log:


Jan 05: 2 power walk breaks at work and today is my Bikram yoga research day. I am so nervous about this but in a good way.

Doing good so far! Just had my first official weigh in and I lost 3.2 pounds!!! First week weigh in is always so happy. ^_^ I should be able to make 7 pounds by the end of the month easy.


January Goals:

ACTUALLY start, instead of the "good for 3 days then stop again" thing I've been doing
Lose 7 pounds
Drink only water / cut out the diet soda
Only have a treat if I have the calories left
Don't skip my fitness class unless I absolutely have to because of something else going on


*Workout Log:

Jan 02: First official day, TPU
Jan 03: Non workout day
Jan 04: TPU
Jan 05: Non workout day, but I took a walk with my daughter to the grocery store for bread, 1.7 miles round trip
Jan 06: TPU

*My fitness class in Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I'll try to get some activity in the other days, but it's not manditory for me just yet. I'm just starting back at this after an unplanned year "off". The class is called Total Pump Up, which I'll shorten to TPU, and is one hour of light weight training along with just enough cardio to keep the heart rate up. Burns roughly 500 calories and works every muscle group.

Stop eating chocolates and crap at the office.
Not lose it mentally
Make it through a Bikram session!
I have no idea what my weight loss goal should be since I have been away from the game for a year now. I hope I will lose without trying too hard due to the stress so I am just going to see what happens and re-evaluate for February.

Is everyone else planning to edit their original post each day or post a new post every day. I didn't want to crowd the forum so I decided to edit my original post each day but wasnt' sure I was using the tools correctly. let me know.
Thanks. And, PS: is there a way to tag someone in a post so that they know you wrote to/about them?

Goals:
231 by birthday #31 (1/27)
exercise minimum of 3x/week
Stay OP and track everything.
SW: 243

January's Workout Log:

Jan 01: day off, bad hours at the gym
Jan 02: 35min walk/run on treadmill (mostly walk, darned ankle tendonitis!)
Jan 03: none...out of work too late :-(
Jan 04: 60 minutes with personal trainer doing cross training. Weigh in day-down 1lb! (not bad w/ TOM here)
Jan 05: 10 min on treadmill. 2 rounds of circuit training that the trainer taught me yesterday....VERY sore muscles :-)
Jan 06: Planned rest day
Jan 07: Worked 12hrs, planned rest day
Jan 08: Worked 12hrs, planned rest day

So far, so good. I've had a tough food weekend (darned working) so I don't expect much from the scale Wednesday, but just hitting the gym as much as I have makes me happy. Back to the gym tomorrow for more of that circuit training torture--hurts so good!
