Default Autumn Beauties June Check-In (Everyone is Welcome to Join!!)

June is already upon us. Everyone is welcome to jump right in with your goals for the month of June. Let's set our goals and work really hard to reach them I hope we all have a great month!!!

June's Challenge:

1. Set a simple weight loss goal for the month of June ~ if you don't feel comfortable setting a weight loss goal, feel free to set a different weight-loss/eating goal (i.e. I will stay at or below 1800 calories every day, etc.)
2. Set a goal of how many days you’d like to work-out in June.
3. Set a goal of how many days you’re going to VISIT THIS THREAD and check in with us. This is important and a great way to stay on track.
4. Anything else you’d like to track here for the month, please do!

Bonuses (Should You Choose To Accept Them…)
On the days that you don't exercise:
•Pick 2 or 3 songs and just dance around to them. Your heart rate will be up and jumping for 10 minutes and you'll feel great (who doesn't like to burn off some energy/steam through dancing?!), or

•Park a little farther away from anywhere you go on that day (work, store, etc), or

•Do both!!

Alright everyone, Let's rock it during June

I am in! Ah, June...

Goals for this month:

1) Lose 5 pounds which would put me at 169
2) Do some kind of exercise 5 times a week
3) I usually check in every day
4) To stay on track and focus when I get exhausted -- that's when I tend to break down and have piglet moments.

1, make better choices when I eat. I've been slipping, LOL
2, exercise but be more active overall
3, check in daily with food and exercise
4, thinking.... I'm sure there's something else I could do


Uneventful weekend for us. Mostly stuck around the house trying to get stuff done.

I tried adding more protein to my diet for a few weeks and gained so I went back to what I was doing before, I feel better even though its only been a few days. We did eat out a few times this weekend. TOM is next week but I already feel bloated and grumpy.

May flew by! June is going to be an interesting month for me. I'm going to be on vacation from the 10th to the 21st so my goals will be a little less ambitious then usual.

Goals for June:
Lose 6lbs
Exercise all weekdays accept for while on vacation
Eat on plan foods daily
100+ oz of water a day

Tomorrow is my weighin of course! I'm also going to take new pictures and my measurements. Unless somethings gone completely wrong I should be in the 220's tomorrow! =)

I did 40min UB weights followed by 30 min steady state on the TM. I think I'm going to try a short weight workout followed by the treadmill for a while and see what I think, it might be a good way to sneak some more cardio in.

I'd like to jump in here, if y'all don't mind! I need accountability SO badly.

My goals for June are:
1. Say goodbye to the 130's-- as a stretch, potentially hit the 10-lb mark of 127.4
2. I would love to work out every day, but that is not realistic so I will say 5 days a week
3. I will check in 6 days a week, giving myself an off day, just in case.
4. I made a binder to track my progress/goals, so my goal for June is to actually USE it!

i am definitely in for june! june should be fairly easy. the only 'off plan' days on the calendar are june 3 and 6. hubby's birthday, and his first day at a new job. so we've got a dinner and a movie date on his birthday + his favorite (super off plan) meal slated for monday to celebrate.

i'm gonna set the same goals as last month.

1. weight goal: i would LOVE to get to 260 by the end of june.
2. workout at least 15 times (3x per week), try for 20 (4x per week)
3. Visit every day!
4. drink over 80oz of water per day
5. stay between 1600-1800 calories per day

Well I did it, even if just barely. 229.2 this morning! I was hoping to be a little more firmly into the 220's, but I can not be anything but happy. I haven't been in the 220's since I was probably 19 or 20. It's an 8.6lb loss for the month. Only down 2.2 since the 15th.. Hopefully things will pick back up a little this month. My goal is just 6lbs for the month so if I can get 3 before my vacation, maintain while I'm on vacation, and then 3 after I'll be happy.

I'm doing my midmonth weighin early since I'll be on vacation on the 15th. We're leaving on the 10th so I'm going to weighin that morning when I get up.

I hope everyone has a great month!

Kim ~ Awesome!! You are officially in the 220s! I'm sure you'll have a great month!

bama girl ~ Welcome! Great goals!

Mandy ~ Good lookin' goals! I hope June is a good month for you!

I hope everyone else is doing great -- it's bright and sunny here today. We have to dig five 2' x 2' holes for trees this week, so I am going to be chipping away at that tonight (but I might plant some bushes that we have because that's a little easier!).

I'm in for the challenge!

Last May I didn't do as well as I wanted to BUT I believe I did better than I probably would have if not for the challenge. My goals for this month are:

1. Check in here daily
2. State my daily affirmations
3. Count my PointsPlus values (PPV), daily
4. Attend WeightWatchers meetings, weekly.
5. Continue with Insanity challenge 6x a week.
6. Make it into the 210's!
7. 5 fruits/veggie servings a day, minimum.

About the last challenge to myself - looking back at my journal I see that, while I might have been eating my target PPV daily I just wasn't eating enough of the green stuff, which is likely why I maintained in May. That changes, today! I'm on vacation right now so I have the opportunity to transition my refrigerator and pantry for the challenge and I am going to take advantage!

Congrats to everyone for challenging themselves, and for the progress you've already made!

Bama Girl, Welcome, good to have you join us.

Kim, congrats on the 220's! Where are you going on vacation?

Tricia, good job on maintaining anyway. I hear you on the more fruits and veggies. I'm trying to eat more of those myself.

Mandy, congrats on Hubby's new job! Whats the meal?

Emme, enjoy the planting!

Lower body and cardio planned for today, as well as laundry {yes, more!}, knitting and various other housework.

Wooooohoooooo! I dropped almost 4 lbs of water weight overnight! I love the human body's response to rehydrating... so this puts me at 133.6 this morning. I do expect it to probably fluctuate, but that's ok.

UGHHHHH!!!! I posted this morning but it's not here and I know I hit submit reply. Oh well, I'll try and remember what I typed!

to the group bama girl and WAY TO GO on such an awesome start to your weight loss journey.

Kim - Congrats on making the 220s. You did an awesome job losing 8.6 pounds last month.

Emme - Have fun digging & planting. That should be a good upper body workout

Penguin & Mandy I hope you're having a great day!

Lisa & Monique - We haven't heard from you in a while and I hope you ladies are doing okay.

My May was okay. My total loss for the month was 5.8 and I lost 15.5 inches. I only lost 1 inch off the waist and since this is my problem area, I really need to do more ab work this month. I'm also aiming for 7 pounds this month so that means I need to stay 100% OP over the weekends. I am also upping my exercise this month.

Have a great afternoon everyone
