Hi everyone,

I just wanted you all to know that I am here, but having trouble setting a personal goal for the month. I am so afraid of failure - I suck! I have only exercised for 35 minutes so far (that was on Sunday) but I promise to get my butt in gear tomorrow! So, that brings our group total to 3911, but I'm not sure about my personal goals yet - hope that's okay!

Group total = 3911 (If I ever do the math wrong, feel free to correct me!)

Yesterday I did:

20 min of sit-ups = 200 sit-ups
15 min of walking = almost a full mile
30 min of lifting to rearrange the house

Today I did:

10 min of sit-ups = 100 sit-ups

Equaling 75 total minutes so far...

I think I've lost another pound since yesterday! I worked out and ate the right things so I didn't have a lot of calories involved. I ate A LOT for around 1050 calories.

I had:

1 cup cheerios
.5 cup milk
1 nonfat yogurt
1 kiwi
1 turkey sandwich that included -
2 slices sourdough bread
3 ounces lettuce
.5 tablespoon low-calorie mayonnaise
2 tomato slices
4 slices turkey deli meat
(total of 350 calories just from sandwich!)
1 turkey hot dog
1 bun
.5 tablespoon catchup
1 cup grapes
1 pickle
1 hundred calorie chocolate ice cream bar

Just for 1050 calories!! :carrot: :hug: :high: :broc:

I've been doing sit-ups, but I may stop doing regular on the floor sit-ups for awhile because yesterday I could barely move. I'll try another type of ab work today though. I'll figure out some non-hurtful things to do. :dizzy:

i have some good ab workouts that are intense but non-hurtful for your back.

-get in position to do a crunch, but let your knees fall apart to the sides. (looks awkward, but just go with it lol)
-keep one hand behind your head, and do a crunch, reaching with the other hand towards your feet X20
-Without stopping, stay in the same position but reach with your free hand toward the ceiling for 20 reps.
-Still not stopping, move your free arm up by your head so it's touching your ear. Go for 20 more reps.
-Switch arms and do it again on the other side!

It sounds kind of complicate but it works amazingly!

Another of my faves:

-bring both knees bent 90 degrees up off the ground.
-keeping your knees together, let them fall to one side.
-do crunches in this position, as many as you want.
-switch sides.

this really works the obliques, and you can really feel your muscles working.

hope these may help you out a little bit! keep up the good work!

HEY TANISHA! Glad to see you over here! :wave:

So some people set a monthly goal of how many minutes you want to spend working out this month. Every time you work out you add your minutes to your personal goal, and then the group total.

K8-EEE has a good example right above your post.

Her Personal: 322 minutes + 45 (her workout) = 367 minutes

GROUP: 6235 minutes + 45 (her workout) = 6280 minutes

So feel free to set a goal and update your total every time you work out! :]
(Sorry my explination isn't so great, Rainlady could probably explain it better)

This is my update for today:

45 Minute Biggest Loser DVD Workout +
10 Minutes Treadmill
= 55 Minutes Today

Totals So Far:
Personal: 935+55 (my workout) = 990/1500

So just to make sure I got this right,
when she's saying 322, that's her monthly total so far, plus her workout today which is 45, giving her 367 for her monthly total so far out of whatever her goal was right?

And for the group total, I'm adding my workout minutes so far to whatever the group total is so far...and so right now the group total is 6000 but its been passed? like you guys beat your own goal already?
if you did that's awesome!

Hi all! Finally got my butt in gear and did an hour of Callanetics... and it's back to the gym tomorrow morning!

Welcome, Glitter Queen!

And thanks for the motivation, Rainlady! You may have explained it before, but how long have you been working towards that 2000?! 700 hours of exercise boggles the mind!

An hour and a half of yoga for me today, which made me feel so much more relaxed after a really draining couple of days. Haven't been to yoga in years, probably, and now I am wishing I could fit it in more than once a week!

Pokio I got a tip from "Painted Lady" here at 3fc, she had a lot of success with the "Yoga Booty Ballet" videos. I ordered a couple of them from half.com, used copies but they work great. I'm sort of still stumbling through it but starting to get it. The name is stupid but they do have a nice zen-like vibe to the vids.
