It's Wednesday folks. Who's in for this weekend. I did not do so well last weekend but I know I'm going to this weekend. So who's with me.

My plan is to stay 100% on my eating plan. I don't exercise on the weekend so I don't worry about that.

04-13-2005, 02:12 PM
I'll be in again!

I am traveling to Chicago area on Saturday to visit family, so I vow to make healthy food choices, and I've already decided that Saturday is my one day off from exercising this week. Sunday I will be home again and will still eat on plan and back to exercising. Plan is to be 19mins on elliptical by then!

I'm in again. Hopefully I'll make it the whole weekend this time.

My plan:

1. Stay on food plan all weekend.
2. Get in 64 oz of water each day.
3. Get into the gym at least once (bonus points for twice).
4. Walk at least 3 miles each day.
5. Take my girls out to do something active at least once.

Good luck, everyone!

I know this weekend is going to be really tough for me. We are going to an Amish town to have dinner with the in-laws on Saturday. Then on Sunday we are going to a baseball game where they are having dime a dog day. Sunday will be my treat day but I only will allow 600 extra calories. That's two hotdogs.

Count me in! I am in a kickstart mode, so I'll start my weekend tomorrow! My goals are to...
1. Drink 4 liters of water daily
2. Stay in calorie range of 1300-1500
3. Get 45-60 minutes of cardio a day (combo of bike/walking)

Hey Howie, you are ahead of the game, and cheering me up with the thought that the weekend is just around the corner! OK, I am with you on this one. I am planning to

- eat healthily
- swim 30 mins on Saturday and Sunday
- drink more water

Thanks for leading us on this!

I'm in on this one :) my plan is a) no drinking and b) SLEEP ENOUGH so I can go to the gym at least one day- i"m going to aim for saturday. but sunday would be great too. c) no evil coffee drinks! (darn you caramel iced latte, darn you right to....)

Good luck ya'll.

Well my weekend has gotten a lot easier again. Dinner was canceled for Saturday and turns out that Sunday is not dime a dog day at the ball park. So looks like it won't be as hard to stay on plan.

My weekend got easier too Howie! My cousin cancelled my visit to Chicago so I'll be home all weekend! Yipee... no bad for me foods at home! I plan to take the dog for long walks on both days, the darn dog park hasn't opened up yet. And still do the Elliptical on both days for 19 mins each day. I'm up to 100 sit-ups/crunchies so I'll keep that up too!

I've been trying to think of what to challenge myself on this weekend.
1. Finish reading Body for Life and set up my goals for it.
2. Try for 80 oz. of water.

I'm going for the simple things this weekend.

Every effort is a step in the right direction Dawnyal. I'm just glad it's FRIDAY!

04-15-2005, 01:35 PM

My goals:

Get enough sleep
Gym on Saturday

WOOHOOO, howie! LOOK AT YOU, you're almost under 300! Gosh, I think you were in the 380s when I first starting moseying around on 3fc. You've been such an inspiration, and I'm really, really happy for you. BTW, I love your new pic. Aaaaaw, young love ;-)

I actually did okay this weekend! I'm glad I saw this thread because weekends are so tough. I got to the gym yesterday and had a kick butt workout, and on Friday "Chinese Food" night I ordered soem kind of scallops and ate until I felt comfortable instead of shoving my face with sesame chicken. Wish I could have gotten to the gym today but it didn't work out. Oh well, not over my limit for the weekend and pretty happywith the outcome! How's everyone else doing?

04-18-2005, 01:39 AM
Good for you Dana. Glad you found the thread also. It's good to see you back around. As for young love I don't know about that. We are both pushing 40. LOL

Well, I think I did okay --

Got in 4 miles on Sat but only 2 on Sunday and didn't make it to the gym either day. But I was well within plan on food and water. Saturday I was pretty gung-ho (even went to a seminar on Laurel Mellin's new 3 day Weight Solution -- very interesting, talked about reprogramming of the limbic system) but Sunday I just wanted to sit in my chair and vegetate.

I plotted out my weight loss and noticed that I have about a 14 day "span of attention" -- kind of lose motivation every two weeks, then it takes 3-5 days to get back on the bandwagon then off we go again. hmmmm.

Weekends are a good time to veg out. I work all week and go to the gym during the week I take the weekend off from exercise. You have to have some down time. I just really try to stick to my eating plan.

04-18-2005, 12:59 PM
I got in my 80 oz. of water on Saturday and made it farther in the book.
sunday, I didn't do so well. I was reading the other book and only had about 30 oz. of water. I'll do better next weekend though :D

04-18-2005, 01:30 PM
That's why we are Dawnyal. We will keep trying until we get it right. So don't beat yourself up just get back at it.

04-18-2005, 04:03 PM
I did great this weekend! Got up Saturday morning and did 19 mins on the elliptical right away, spent the rest of the morning shopping, then in the afternoon took Lexi to the dog park which is *finally* open! Wore my pedometer and it and I clocked 1 mile (to the dog's like 3!!!). Then on sunday, we went for a 3 mile leash walk with Lexi and came home and did 10 mins on the elliptical.

I did well this weekend.....went swimming on Saturday and Sunday, and ate healthily. I think I'm still in the 'back-on-the-wagon honeymoon period'!
