Hello everyone!! Looks like everyone has some great goals here.....I hope you all had a nice St Patty's day. I made the traditional corned beef and cabbage and won't get on the scale today because I know that corned beef has me bloated. I also had an ice cream ball (Target sells those, why did I buy them) last night. I felt like it was a holiday so why not. So...that was my cheat day and I'm back on track today. Going to Zumba and then tonight Cross fit...(eeeeek...dreading it already).....I also have a free month at a local 24 hour gym and I have to sit and figure out when in my schedule I am going to get there......I feel like we're down to the wire with the warmer weather on its way and I need to make some headway.

I notice some are choosing fitness goals over weight goals....I never thought of that...why put the pressure of that number down? And a fitness goal will eventually turn into a weight goal achieved anyway. Great idea ladies!

It is freezing again today, but the days are longer and sunnier, so I know that spring is on its way and there will be no more hiding under sweats and sweaters. When my arms went to Hades that is when I truly felt "old". So I guess my fitness goal should be me focusing on some upper body work and gettng these arms a bit more toned and ready for tank tops....

Well as usual I'm talking the talk, time to get off my bum and make this day happen.

I weigh in on Mondays. I was up 1# to 157.0 this AM. But some of it is sure to be PMS bloat. 140's here I come.

LuvCats. I like your goals, definitely using the "Keep It Simple" principle.

I wish it would quit snowing, but winter is hanging on tenaciously. So its off to the fitness club, AGAIN.

Well I did'nt make it to Cross fit tonight, I think the new sneakers I've been wearing to zumba are causing me a lot of joint pain...not sure why .....my ankles and knees hurt. I was too shot to get to CS tonight but now I regret it..atleast I gave it my all at Zumba this morning.......

Didn't do so great on eating today, made some Irish Soda bread and how could I not eat it? But tomorrow is a fast day, I look forward to it.......

hope everyone else had a good day...

Monday: 1450 calories, 30 min elliptical, 5 min push-ups/planks

Wow, eating off plan for just a few days makes it hard to get back into it and keep calories low. But I'm proud that I drove myself to the gym in the snow at 9PM when I really just wanted to go to bed.

zumba, how are you doing the fasting? I try to eat most of my calories between 8 and 3, although I allow myself a few hundred calories around 6 before a workout.

june, it's snowing here in NY too. So freaking sick of it.

2fc, your body fat is amazing..you're such an inspiration.

I'll join this thread this time. I've been struggling to get back to my exercise routine since my mother-in-law got sick. I want to get back to at least 3 times a week.

Super busy right now, but really trying to watch the sugar and carb intakes. The next 2 weeks will be a challenge with various events that involve lots of food! Still fighting the good fight.

Good luck today, everyone!

Keeping it simple works for me, Junem. Glad you like it.

Hang in there everyone! We can do this.

As for me, only down .2#. Lol after last week I kind of expected this though plus I did go out to dinner 2x this past week. Now the challenge will be to behave relatively well when I travel to my daughter's house this week.

I will read all the posts so far after jumping in here but wanted to do ONE THING today that proves to myself that i am serious about this. I don't know yet what exactly my weight goal will be because i haven't stepped on the scale in over a week (denial much??) but WILL do this in the morning. Thanks for this thread. And i promise i will learn everyone's name in the following few days lol.

Thanks Natamars! You're an inspiration! It takes some amazing dedication to drive to the gym in the snow AND at night! I detest driving in either of those conditions much less both. I pretty much don't like driving period.

My bf% is getting there - it looks better on paper, though! Sadly now I look like a snake that swallowed a big soft meal. *sigh*
Gotta get rid of the last of the belly bulges! You can't see it in clothes- but it's there. Taunting me.

I'm in! I do plan to have pelvic mesh removal and reconstruction surgery done in the coming weeks, but my goals for this great May 1 challenge is:

1. Make it to the pool 3 times per week until and after surgery/recouperation.
2. Work up to 180 abdominal crunchies in the water
3. Break the 180's and weigh 17_
