Hello ladies! This is something I really used to enjoy when I was back in the 20 something's forum. Basically the idea is well all create a post with our goals and a log for the month. Then you come back and update it daily with your hard work! It can be simple or detailed. Mine will follow as an example. I am a 'list' person and find a ton of motivation in updating my totals and putting it out there for the world to see! Maybe you will too!

Any way we can sticky this?

Good idea! The start of January is my offical start with getting back to weight loss (not a new years thing, just getting past the holidays), so this will be perfect for me. So...

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 absolutly have to because of something else going on

I'm in!!

I've been sick for the last week with no end in sight, so starting in January I need to get back at my workouts HARD CORE! And clean up my eating.

For now, my goal is to do 3 HIIT workouts a week (including bodyweight exercises) and lift HEAVY weights 2 times a week!! As far as nutrition goes, I'll be eating when I'm HUNGRY and not eat from the office candy jar!!

January Goals:
Log MyFitnessPal Calories everyday.
Get at least 7 hrs sleep/night.
Lose 1-2 lbs a week.
Exercise everyday... even if it's just push ups.
Have at least one exercise outing this month (praying for weather for skiing).
Spend time with friends but enlist their help in reaching goals (ie: ask that we avoid eating junk foods and drinking alcohol)
Find a new excercise to try out :)

January's Workout Log:

Jan 01:45 min walk
Jan 02:kettle ball weight lifting for arms and shoulders
Jan 03:Squats and Lounges
Jan 04:sit ups, push ups and stretching
Jan 05:squats and lounges again
Jan 06:sit ups with weights, push ups
Jan 07:push ups
Jan 08: rest day
Jan 09: oops. forgot exercise but did well on other goals
Jan 10: weights (mostly arms)
Jan 11: forgot today's exercise. did well otherwise.
Jan 12-16 OMG! Why 4 days?!? Now scared of scale. :stress:
Jan 17: calorie counting, check; sleep check, no exercise though
Jan 18: calorie count, check; sleep, check. I'll take it.
Jan 19: I've decided to be happy to meet my calorie counting goals every day. Maybe next month will be a better month for exercise. So far in January calories have been counted all but 4 days. I'm aiming to finish out the month strong by entering my fitness pal data daily through the rest of January. gotta check what's going in my mouth! I'm happy to say that I stepped on the scale and found I lost .5 lbs. Yay! Even better, the tape measure says I've lost 2 inches. I like that even better. :)

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 :dizzy:
Make it through a Bikram session! :hot:
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.

Jan 03:
Jan 04: Well, I ran up 3 flights of stairs and walked down 3 flights of stairs... that was about it. I was too tired to do anything else. How people who have 12 hour shifts day after day manage exercise, I will never know..
Jan 05: Slept...played catch up with my bed =\ I know. Bad way to go. On the positive, I've lost 2lbs all ready though

Doing good so far! Just had my first official weigh in and I lost 3.2 pounds!!! :celebrate: 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

*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.

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!

Yes, better late than never and welcome to the thread =)

Jan 01: I was bad...but dinner made me realize I need to stop giving in and learn to excuse myself from eating at Texas Roadhouse
Jan 02: 20 minute stretch DVD, some extra stair climbing.... messed up on food became frustrated, nervous and ate bad late. Dusting myself off tomorrow I'll do better!
Jan 03:
Jan 04: Well, I ran up 3 flights of stairs and walked down 3 flights of stairs... that was about it. I was too tired to do anything else. How people who have 12 hour shifts day after day manage exercise, I will never know..
Jan 05: Slept...played catch up with my bed =\ I know. Bad way to go. On the positive, I've lost 2lbs all ready though
Jan 06: Only squeezed in a few crunches, and some floor exercise...
Jan 07: Noted the scale says I weigh 282, so I've lost 3lbs =) Exercise plan today 58 minutes with Richard, and 20 minute stretch dvd
Jan 08: 30 crunches, ran up and down the stairs 4 times to get my heart rate elevated for 20 minute stretch DVD. Tomorrow, I'm going to face my fears and return to Anytime Fitness (years membership just kind of been... wasted)

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
Jan 07: Non workout day, but I took the extra (optional) Saturday class at the same place I take TPU. Kicked my butt! Was also 1 hour, but different stuff from TPU. Calorie count was bad due to unexpected company taking us out for dinner. Only ate half my portion though!
Jan 08: Non workout day. Didn't do any extra due to being out of town visiting. Calorie count was terrible!
Jan 09: Might have to skip TPU tonight because of having way too much to do that didn't get done over the weekend. We'll see what happens.

*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.

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.
Jan 06: 2 power walks, office yoga, and going to a friends tonight for a healthy home cooked meal.
Jan 07: I spent both Sat. and Sun. moving a bunch of stuff around the house
Jan 08: and didn't get an actual workout in but I was sweating so I will count it as half a workout at least.
Jan 09: 2 power walks, I was sick so that was it.
Jan 10: 2 power walks, still not 100%
Jan 11: 2 power walks, office yoga. I am having a hard time staying on track this week with stress and sickness but still motivated so I will make it through!

There's some great journal entries in here. Everyone keep it up! I fell off the saddle for four days+ and i feel usually would beat myself up over it but coming here helps me put things in perspective... I think most of us have "those days" where we don't get as much done as we hope. I'm working to get myself re-motivated and back in the saddle again. :)

How is everyone doing? ... I haven't met the weight target yet (76 not 75).... but I'm losing and have kept to the water and exercise goal ... still need coffee .... but you can't win 'em all .... and coffee keeps me sane at times ...

I'll take losing 2 kgs a month though ... and I feel a lot healthier than I did at at the beginning of the month
