30-Somethings - 90-Day Exercise Challenge (Jan/Feb/Mar)

Hello all! I'm not a newbie to the site, but I am a newbie to the 30-Somethings group. I wanted to head on over here and start a challenge thread that's been pretty successful in the 20-somethings group ever since I've been involved. I hope you guys can get as pumped about it as I do. It helped me lose about 14 lbs for my wedding last September. Now that it's creeping back on, I decided it was time to do something about it. :carrot:

For those of you who haven't been involved in a 90-Day Exercise Challenge, the focus of this thread is setting goals for exercising regularly and encouraging others to meet their goals. Although exercising is the focus, you're welcome to post weight-loss and fitness goals if you'd like.

Here's how it works:
1. Copy and paste the following format to your post.
2. Fill out your data.
3. Then, after each workout you've completed, come back and edit your post to reflect your progress. (We do this so that the thread doesn't get so long and the conversation isn't lost.)
4. If you want to take before and after pictures to post, you're encouraged to do so. (The before and afters are GREAT for motivation!)
5. Post a link to your post in your signature so people can see your progress.

Directions:

Step 1: Follow this diagram to get the link to your post. Click on the number and it will solely show your post. Copy the URL from the address bar.
Step 2: In your User CP, click on “Edit Signature”.
Step 3: Paste the URL with the following tags with no spaces: My 90 Day Exercise Challenge Progress
Step 4: Save your changes.

Before Picture: See Below
After Picture:

Diet: Focus on eating clean (No eating out, sticking to planned meals and calories) for first 2 weeks to get back into the swing of things
Exercise Goal: Weight training 3x/week (30 total), Cardio 2x/week (22 total)
Progress: Weight workouts: 2/30
Cardio workouts: 2/22

Waist: 35.5"
Bust: 41"
Hips: 44.5"
Thighs: 28"
Arms: 13"

Weight Goal: (185/185/140)
Health/Wellness goal: First goal is to get all of these holiday toxins out of my body! I give that about 2 weeks of eating clean. Then, onto the next goal.

January

1/1 - Recovered from NYE party :faint: / Decided to focus on my diet for the next 5 days. I won't get anywhere if I don't start with what I'm feeding my body.
1/2 - Back onto eating clean! Also, went swimming for 40 minutes tonight. Weighed myself and lost 1/2 a pound from my starting weight. I'm now 184.5 While it's a small victory, I'm still so glad I did not gain over the holidays! :carrot:
1/3 - Stuck to healthy eating. There were still some holiday treats in the coffee room this morning at work, but I ate all my snacks instead. Didn't get a lot of sleep last night, so I will get some rest. Planning to do a weight lifting routine tomorrow.
1/4 - Did well on healthy eating. I've been really tired from the holidays, so I think I'm still going to rest. Still sticking to my first goal of eating clean.
1/5 - So proud of myself. Did my first round of weight lifting tonight. It lasted about 40 minutes - a little shaky at first, but I got into the swing of things - and overall, it felt good. Glad I got over my weight-lifting hump, as I've been dreading this last piece of the weight loss puzzle. Again, proud of myself. :carrot:
1/6 - Did well on healthy eating! Ok, I had a peanut butter cookie, but I'm ok with it because I also did 40 minutes of swimming and a 40 minute total trainer work out today. Also, prepped my meals for the week, so I'm all set on healthy food for work.

1/7 - Swam my 20 laps (35-40 mins). I'm trying to figure out my proper caloric intake with my exercise routine. Today I added in some more calories and ended up at 2045. I added cals in at lunch, and had enough energy for my swim at 8pm. Still have to modify a bit though. Really feel good from the swim.
1/8 - Rest day/cheat day. Tried so hard to work out tonight, but I am exhausted. I've barely slept this week, as i'm adjusting from the holidays, and I'm not used to being this active. So, fine - I'll listen to my body. I also had a half-slice of cheesecake.
1/9 -Another rest day. Ok, I get it, I'm tired. I need to reassess my workout schedule. Swimming two days in a row, and at the beginning of the week wears me out, especially since I'm not getting a lot of sleep anyway. And the lack of sleep is causing me to want to eat more. Rest, relax, calm down :stress:
1/10 - resting
1/11 - resting
1/12 - resting - planned calories for next week - between 1600-1700 cals
1/13 - resting

1/14 - calories = 1660
1/15 - calories = 1700, walked 30 minutes
1/16 - calories = 1788, walked 30 minutes
1/17 - calories = estimated 2100, getting tired of PMS and feeling like crud, just want to sleep
1/18 - calories = not sure probably 2100ish, getting discouraged, need to buy a scale
1/19 - bought a scale - weight is back up to 185.6 :(
1/20

1/22 - no night eating (yay) - walking for 25 minutes

Glad to see a good sized group of girls - should be fun!

I spent my NYE downhill skiing, so I spent the day recouping instead of being a gym rat. Lol!

Woohoo! glad to see some more joiners! I have nasty case of something laryngitis-like, so I haven't worked. My voice has been gone for the last two days, which definitely isn't good when you're a teacher!

Also good to see a before pic posted- reminds me to get mine up!

Get well soon Kariatari , hopefully the weekend will give your voice the break it needs..

Good Luck Fightingtolose definitely helps seeing each day in black and white , easier to keep on track

Welcome VMO1 had calf issue myself in Oct was out for 2 months was so annoying, so i'm brisk walking for the 1st two weeks so i can build it up too :) i'm booked in for Zumba next week

vmo1
01-04-2013, 08:11 PM
Thanks Curlysue82! It feels so wonderful to be back to the gym, although I know I'll have to build up to some things and fight the urge to jump in where I left off. I couldn't do lunges tonight-too much weight on the bad toe-so I just did squats. Anyone have any lunge alternatives other than squats?

coffeeshopgirl
01-05-2013, 09:47 PM
vmo1 - I do standing lunges instead of squats. I stand with my feet together, then step forward, and step back. Then I repeat with the other foot.

Yeah, my body isn't ready for squats yet.

Hope this helps :)

01-06-2013, 02:43 PM
Ya i am the same, when i go to the classes i want to go everyday then i injury or burn out... so this time i'm going to go slow and steady,..

How did ye all find the 1st week?
delighted with my progress so far, its going to come to an abrupt halt soon after the x.mas bloat disappears but i'm ready for the hard slog..

starting Zumba on Tuesday and bought some kettlebells online... so thats my next challenge :)

01-06-2013, 06:00 PM
My first week went well. I think I needed the "It's Jan 1st, the holidays are over, get back on track" call to action, lol. My coworkers brought in more of their leftover goodies to share, but I stuck to my healthy eating and wasn't even tempted by their presence in the break room.

Diet - My meals are all prepped for the week. Snacks too!

Exercise - Doing well so far. Really proud of myself for buckling down and finally doing my weight lifting routine. I feel good in my muscles, and I know it will pay off as long as I stick with it.

Cardio - Started swimming again! I was having success on the treadmill for a few months, so I gave up on swimming for a while. Now, I'm back in the pool, and I'm enjoying it.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Cheers to our progress so far!

First week was rough for me exercise-wise because I was sick. On the mend though, so I went out and skied today and it felt great. :) Tomorrow I'll start back with kickboxing.

What are you guys going to do for motivation? I've decided to give myself a bath with bath salts for every week I squeeze in 5 workouts. I get to buy unmentionables for every 5 lbs. lost. ;)

i like you thinking.. well done on ignoring the left overs success :carrot:


kariatari Wow thats class to be able to Ski randomly as a past time, we would need to book flights and accommodation to get anywhere near a slope haha maybe plan it for my next one.. combine exercise and mulled wine sounds like a dream

Started back to kettlebells today, i tore a ligament in OCT at the class.. but all good , felt great after it, Zumba tomorrow and then weigh in Wed...

01-07-2013, 07:19 PM
First week felt great. Today was brutal going. I wanted to stay home and curl up on the couch with Downton Abbey! But I went and am happier for it.

Motivation-Every week I get my 5 workouts in I get to set aside $15 toward a perfectly lovely (if a bit pricey) pedicure. My husband got me a fancy spa pedicure for Christmas and it was wonderful. We have to take care of our feet, might as well enjoy it! ;-)

It's not downhill skiing - just cross country. I'm lucky enough to have a state park in my town with a beautiful lake and groomed trails around the lake in the winter. It definitely doesn't feel like "working out" when I go there - especially after new snow!

vmo1 that's a great reward! I love pedicures even though I've only had one. Lol!

coffeeshopgirl
01-07-2013, 11:27 PM
Thanks curlysue82!

My motivation as far as rewards - I'm really not sure. Honestly, talking/blogging about my progress is vital to my success, so the accountability is my motivator right now. It's the daily check-ins that help me make and work toward goals.

Also, knowing that I can come here for the big and the small things that get to me about my weight loss journey, and have positive support, is what makes me come back to update everyone! There are so many facets to this journey - a completely lifestyle change - that you become kinda obsessed with weight loss. Obsessed in a healthy way.

And sometimes, the other people in your life just wanted to pig out on pizza and wings. While that's completely fine, it's not a part of my life anymore.

Overall, the biggest motivation for me has been the personal awareness on my eating habits, body image, and internal voice. Last year, I was putting the pieces of my journey together, leaning to prioritize them into: 1. positive thinking 2. clean diet 3. exercise. This year, I'm putting them into practice.

This is the year I will lose the weight!

I may be out for a few days. :( Took a tumble last night and turned my ankle a little. I thought it was fine but still sore this morning, especially if I rotate it at all. I'm hoping I can get through some yoga tonight but I may just sit out today and let it rest.

coffeeshopgirl
01-09-2013, 12:39 PM
Sorry to hear about your tumble vmo1 - hope it heals quickly!

I agree, it's a good idea to rest. The quicker you rest, the faster your body can repair itself :)

01-09-2013, 01:10 PM
Thanks coffeeshopgirl. It really was a pretty klutzy move that must have been pretty funny to witness. Lol I'm determined though to break my goal so soon into the challenge and log a no workout day so that might just get me through!


UPDATE: I went to yoga and it actually feels better than before I went! Maybe it just needed a good, thorough stretching out. Very happy I decided to suck it up and go. :-)

Vmo sorry to hear about your ankle :( is it any better? i recon your due the couch and a few episodes of Downton now ;) its next boxset on my list i am just nearing the end of Breaking bad..

Welcome Zephyr it really is scary how fast the 90 days are going..


Well done Coffeshopgirl this is your year... woo hoo

KaratariIt's not downhill skiing - just cross country. I'm lucky enough to have a state park in my town with a beautiful lake and groomed trails around the lake in the winter. It definitely doesn't feel like "working out" when I go there - especially after new snow!

ok folks ill check in again on Friday, tomorrow is going to be a bit manic don't think ill be online.. i have kettlebells and Zumba if i am still alive i shall return haha

Keep it up girls! We are almost 1/3 of the way through the month already!

Thanks Curlysue-I decided I was probably just being lazy and went to the gym. I feel much better for it! Stretched out my ankle and all is well. You will love Downton! I saw a clip a while ago, the men of Downton as Breaking Bad. It was hilarious. You are amazing doing kettlebells and zumba in one day!

WTG Kiz! Your workouts sound intense!!!

coffeeshopgirl
01-09-2013, 09:09 PM
Ok, ladies - I need your help relaxing!! :stress:

I feel like I'm losing control already. Back in November, I lost weight simply from paying attention to calories. It took me a while to get that under control, and now that I'm trying to work out and swim in the same week, something's gotta give. I'm not tracking calories, and I missed two workouts and I'm going to use this message to collect my thoughts and figure out why this is happening.

To avoid a rambling message full of anxiety, I shall simply bullet point my worries (as I hyperventilate here to myself):

1. I'm exhausted from the holidays and have not been sleeping enough this week.
2. I am feeling overwhelmed juggling calorie counting, swimming, and strength training.
3. Because I'm overwhelmed, I'm eating more and skipping workouts.

Hmm, I guess that's it, but it's bothering me that I'm not perfect right at the beginning! (Lol, I told you I was full of anxiety.) So, let's think of a better way to pull these goals together:

1. Concentrate on counting calories ONLY for 1 week.
2. Catch up on sleep!
3. Build up to working out 3x and cardio 2x a week. I think a good solution will be this:

- week 1 - 1 day of swimming, 1 day of strength training - calorie counting is the priority
- week 2 - 2 days swimming, 2 strength training - still calorie counting

...and so on.


Has anyone ever experienced this? Where you take too much on, get overwhelmed, and then everything starts to crumble? I've been here before, and it's turned into months of bad choices - I don't want to go back to that. :cry:

I'm trying very hard to stay positive right now...

vmo1
01-09-2013, 11:28 PM
Coffeeshopgirl-That happens to me on a regular basis! I jump in headfirst and try to do everything all at once, and get frustrated when I get overwhelmed or have a day that isn't perfect. Instead of saying tomorrow is another day, I've tended to just give up. Something that has helped me immensely (as horribly corny as it sounds), is to start meditating. I have always had a difficult time letting go of things, and tend to internalize, stress and get anxious. Not good for my sleeping habits, self esteem, general well being.

I found a guided meditation on iTunes called Splendor of Meditation for $10 and figured it was worth a shot. I can't begin to describe how much it helped, and how quickly. It has 5 different ones, from quick to lengthy. There is one for a power nap, unwinding after work, etc. I found that if I did one of them shortly before bed, I slept great and let go of not being perfect. Now when I get those feelings I take a few deep breathes and my mind automatically goes into meditation mode and calms me down pretty much immediately.

I don't have to be perfect every day, counting calories and exercising both if it's too much. Any day that I don't give in to junk food, self doubt, anxiety is a success in my mind. You can do it; we're all here to support you! *hugs*

How's it going everyone?! Any NSVs lately? My NSV was that I made my workout goal last week.

coffeeshopgirl
01-15-2013, 09:36 PM
Hi kariatari! Great NSV!

I've never really written in a journal before since it's hard to stay accountable to myself alone. However, it was comforting to see my progression from my first week (which was too rigorous but a typical New Year's resolution plan), to realizing that I'm tiring out, to getting back on track.

My NSV is that I visualized my "fall from grace" and realized that I was only off plan for 6 days. In the grand scheme of things, 6 days isn't that bad! Another NSV is congratulating myself for getting back on track in less than a week.

Also put my tickers up to track my progress, and it's good to have a visual goal to shoot for.

Lots of activity at work and at home (preparing for a competition) means no gym since last Thursday, but I'm going back today. But at least I've been eating very cleanly and lightly. Also had a very busy weekend-spent two days doing nothing but cooking and cleaning. I'm counting that as mild exercise lol.

Hi, I'm Laura. Mind if I join this thread late? I'll start posting in Feb. In Jan I jogged more than anything, although I did do some other cardio workouts and strength training. But mainly I jogged 51.5 miles this month. Including a 5k on Jan 19th and 6.5 miles today (my new personal best!) Tomorrow is a rest day but I will be doing some shopping which means a couple hours of walking, I'll have to wear my hrm.

Thanks! I haven't weighed since starting the challenge, but I'm hoping to see some shift! I'm amazed how much it helps having this board helps; there are days I only workout so I don't have to mark rest day. :)

Chubbygirl-that dress is stunning! You are going to look fabulous in it.

I'm still adding to my list. I just had a set back though. While I was away on a weekend break, I had to put my cat to sleep. I'm still not fully recovered from that. :( She was 18.5 though, so we couldn't hold on to her any longer even if we wanted too.

But back to this thread. I just added a link to my log in my signature. I hope it works!

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, that is a really difficult decision to have to make even if you know it's the right thing to do.

I need to do the signature link - I haven't even attempted it yet. I just come back to the thread and I know I'm on page 3 :)

Hi everyone

how are ye finding the challenge?
i haven't been to bad with the exercising, the eating habits however took a nosedive so basically haven't been on here, then this morning i figured i better log on and fess up and try to get myself back on track and give myself the kick up the *** i need..


so the exercise has been ok i have been mainly exercising 4 times a week, and got a cold in between excuse excuses.. anyhow the eating has been a disaster and this morning i weighed on the scales at 194 so 6lbs up since i was last on here... AAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhh


although looking at my start weight at the beginning of the challnege i am still down a few lbs...


so basically for the next 8 days i will be seriously strict on my food intake and stop eating biscuits etc....


plan plan plan....


hope ye are all doing well :dizzy:

I've been hanging in there on both diet and exercise. My calorie intake has been running in the 1200-1300 range on my plan days and I run 1400-1600 on my "cheat day". I did have one slip where I hit almost 2,000 on cheat day. I have been exercising regularly and I'll slightly exceed my goal of 77 days of exercise during the challenge (6 days/week). I've lost a total of 15 pounds since I started back to on the healthy lifestyle road in December and I've lost quite a few inches so I'm seeing the fruits of my labor. I have to decide what my exercise plan will look like once I finish Ripped in 30 this week. I will need to have a plan in place though since I find I will talk myself out of exercise if I just try to wing it.

I set a goal of working out 77 days of the 90 and I met my goal with a final total of 78 days!

I lost a total of 14.1 pounds since the start of the challenge.
