Default CC Halloween Challenge

Time for a new challenge. We can set our goals for what you are working on. Get in a different size, daily calorie limit, exercise plan, weight loss, or inches lost. We are going in the same direction and it helps to walk with someone. It would be good if you could check in daily because the more active we are with checking in the more we help each other.

Anyone is welcomed to join the challenge. Let's have some fun!!

Looking forward to making progress with everyone.

Great challenge! I just started counting calories again, so it helps me to have a daily check-in.

My goals for this challenge include:

- Eating between 1600-1750 calories per day.
- Working out 3-4 times a week. With a 1 year old at home, that's all I'm doing for right now.
- I would also like to lose 8 pounds. That's one pound a week.

I enjoy counting calories, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I eat over occasionally. Life happens. For example, I am going out to eat Wednesday night with a friend. I've already looked up the nutrition/calories and I know what I'll be getting, but it will put me over. I'm determined to have a healthy mindset throughout this process. I have a tendency to self-sabotage, so I'm going to stay focused and work through it.

My goals:
Stick to 1400 calories each day, with once a week over by a 200.
Walk 18-20 miles a week.

Got a trip to NYC to visit my daughter last weekend in Sept so I'm not going to stick to it then. Won't go crazy but the main thing is the minute I get back jump back on board. But I'm so happy I can fit into my pants for that trip!

Good morning, everyone. I ate 1715 calories which felt good. I was starving before bedtime (not really, just in my head), so I had a few goldfish crackers and called it a night.

I hope everyone has a great day today. It's supposed to be 98 outside today, so no runs for me tonight.

I think a challenge would be just the thing to keep me accountable!

1) stick to 1300 - 1500 calories a day, with 2-3 planned cheat days (I have a birthday coming up - no use setting myself up for failure!)
2) work out 45 minutes at least 5 days a week, with 2 weight sessions
3) Comfortably fit back in my size 14 jeans I can zip them up and wear them now, but i feel like a stuffed sausage by the end of the day!

I've been within plan since Sunday and I've worked out once already. I plan on doing weights and then elliptical tonight at the gym!

ok I'm in!

I would like to be down 10 lbs by Halloween.

I've been off the wagon lately and am just now getting back into the swing of things.

Today, I was really, really craving fast food. I wanted to go to Jack-in-the Box and binge, but I got on the scale instead and it was enough to keep me from going. I made myself a sandwich instead. I felt the craving coming back again really badly around dinner time. I decided that I would go to Chick-fil-a and get a salad and a cup of soup, which I did (and it was delicious). I still have about 450 calories of my 1600 left to go for today. One of my major problems has been drinking. When I drink, I consume a LOT of calories, and my guard is let down and I eat way too much. It's amazing how far I can get my calorie budget to go during the day with just a few good decisions!

Hopefully the 10 lbs will be enough to push me down a size. Staja- I'm super jealous you can wear a 14. We're the same weight, I'm 5'8", and I'm definitely a 16, often an 18.

Good morning. I drank all my water yesterday but my eating was way off. I did get my crunches done for yesterday. I'm going to be getting my crunches and Zumba done today as well as I'm going to stick strictly to 1800 calories today. I won't yield to the night time eating bug. I'm on track for getting all my water in today. As long as I start my day with water before I eat anything I usually get all my water in before 7pm. It is my goal to make sure I get it all in before 7pm so I'm not up all night going to the bathroom.

Have an awesome on plan day today!!!

Good morning!

Yesterday I managed to stick to my calories (although, during the week, it's not as much of an issue for me - I can only eat what I pack ). I also did my 20ish minutes weight routine and re-started C25K for the third time, so I only need 1 more weight session and 3 more cardio days this week.

MarjorieMargarine - it's a blessing and a curse! It takes me a huge loss to see any change in clothing sizes, and it makes it way easier to elude myself about my weight! At my highest weight, I was in size 22...I was almost 300 pounds, but it wasn't so bad, because you know...size 22.

Good morning! I ate 200 calories more than my range yesterday, but I'm ok with that. I was honestly really hungry and after I ate, I felt much better and very satisfied. I enjoy calorie counting, but I'm not going to make myself live a horrible existence and not eat something if my body is truly hungry.

It's interesting because I'm an emotional eater, but now that I'm counting calories again, I'm paying attention to when I am really hungry...not just when I want to eat because I want to.

I can relate to that! The first couple weeks of my diet I started drinking tons of water, after quitting diet soda and I was up every hour at night! Luckily it was summer and I wasn't teaching. But I don't want to do that again.

Hi everyone. Yesterday was a better calorie day at 1762. It seems like I am hungriest at the end of the day, but maybe I need to eat heavier foods during the day to fill me up. It's all trial and error. Have a great day!
