Okay Forty something Chicks: That day is coming..all hearts and love and valentines.....Whether you have a sweetie that you plan to spend it with or you'll be alone in front of the t.v. that night like I am, why not look better and feel better by then? I plan on losing a significant amount of weight by then (26 days away as of now). Who is on board? Just post what you plan on doing differently between now and then.....and lets make it happen....

For this challenge I plan on doing the following:

take supplements every day
increase water consumption
follow BFC plan

I'm aiming for 139 as being my goal weight for this challenge, but I'd be happy at an even 140.

As far as exercise goes I would like to follow the Brazilian Butt lift DVD plan but I have a problem getting it in every day liket he program requires, I'll plan on doing it as much as I can fit in, as well as get some yoga in a few times a week.

Zumba!!! It's good to be back!!!! And yet again, you and I are within a few lbs. of each other! I am at 147.2 as of this morning, and my goal is to be under 140 by V-Day, probably too ambitious, but what the he!!

I had gotten within 4 lbs. of goal weight recently, then had some personal difficulties and life got in the way. I'd started to get back in my groove last fall, then Sandy hit(no power for 8 days, no exercise due to no shower, unable to cook or keep fresh food around, extreme stress due to missing work at budget time, nights and weekends spent making up the work, then I got sick twice between T'giving and Xmas, general holiday food, etc). For the last 2 weeks or so I've been journaling my food and keeping my calories down and exercising but haven't dropped an ounce. I've been particularly strict since Monday. Here are my goals for the challenge:

1) Journal all food and drink every day
2) Keep calories 1000-1500(been averaging 1350 or so)
3) Do some type of exercise every day - even if stuck in the house I can climb stairs or do squats or planks
4) Do minimum of 30 min of cardio 4 days a week
5) Do something every day that makes me feel proud!
6) Post here daily

So frustrating that as soon as I'm not super careful the weight piles back on. I think it's the same for a lot of 40-somethings on this board!!!

Zumba, did you come through Sandy OK? We were lucky that we had no damage to the house and everyone was safe..many I know were not so lucky.

ok, I'm in

Rather than a number on the scale, I'm going to shoot for this:
Drinking my 60 or more oz. of water each day
Getting in 20,000 steps as many days as I can
Staying on my program

Hopefully that will relate to a number in the mid 160s

best to all

1/19: 1220 calories, 40 min on elliptical. Made myself proud by not grabbing anything to eat while running errands and cutting myself off food last night even though I had some calories left.

Zumba, I hear you, but we're back now and that's what counts!

kelijpa, 20,000 steps is a fantastic goal! How do you manage to do so much walking?

Going into the city today to take my son to the Nat History Museum..will pack lunch and get some good walking in.

Hi everybody....

I had a swoosh today, so between getting AF and following my BFC diet it made a difference yesterday...I feel so less bloated today! I still have a long ways to go but it is definitely a start.

Going to a friends house tonight to watch the Rangers game, sort of like a "first home game" party. I'm a little nervous because as we all know a lot of junk food is served at events like this (think Super Bowl). I think i'm going to bring a cheese/pepperoni platter so that there will be protein there and I"m sticking with diet coke and not beer. I should be okay...I hope !

Natamars: my kids are in the city today too with their father...not sure where they are going , I just hope they stay warm!

Have a great Sunday everybody. I am going to tidy up this house and then go out to try and find a Rangers jersey to wear.

Keep imagining yourself looking awesome for V'day......

I am totally imaging seeing an 8 on the scale where a 9 is now! It's still way more than I want to weigh, but I keep telling myself it's a big step in the right direction!
I have a favorite pair of jeans that are too tight now, but will fit if I meet the Valentines Day goal, so I hung them on the back of a chair in my bedroom. I'm going to keep putting them on as an added incentive!
