Default 25-day BOOTCAMP (ends june 2nd)

Hello everyone!

The idea of this challenge is to focus on exercise. I believe it is the KEY for my weightloss (that is not happening cause i am not moving!). Either you are a maniac at the gym or a lazy bum like me, you are welcome to share your plan here!

I called it "bootcamp" cause i will put extra effort on the gym part and make it an intensive 25 days (it's not too long so the goal doesn't seem too far away), so this is what i expect from the team... so that we can share ideas, routines and progress!

Have a weekly/day to day plan that you can share with the team, also a nutrition plan if you want and track your progress!!!

JOIN ANYTIME - ends June 2nd

It's wednesday which means I will be going straight from work to the gym. I need to leave at 4 pm (wooo short day!). i actually wish i could go to the gym in the morning but i am not a morning person.. :/

I think for this month I will be going o work at 9pm which means i wake up at 8. And this means that i can go to sleep 12-1am (not ideal but i know how it goes in my house...)

I do not think this is a plan i can carry in the long term. But it is my last month as a gym member so it's a last push. I will regret it later.

I know now i am not a gym person. I prefer swimming (although i didn't see results) and running/walking outside. Sooo yeah that is the situation.

25 days will FLY!!!

hopefully i won't be all alone here!

day one is almost over and i did surprisingly good! i feel i should have pushed it more at the gym... i felt a bit lazy :/
at least food was good so i think it compensates.

tomorrow i need to make a bigger effort!!

I will jump on with you! I have been working out again for the first time in years and love challenges! I am doing the C25K and strength training.

My weekly goals
Monday/Wed/Fri - Strength (primarily using NerdFitness)
Tues/Thurs/Sat - Jogging C25K

Nutrition, I am keeping a balanced whole foods diet, aiming for less then 1800 calories per day. No specific plan. Lots of healthy fats, vegetables, pastured animals, some healthy whole grain carbs.

breakfast 2 eggs/Ezekiel toast/fruit
lunch salad w/protein (chicken breast or salmon)
Dinner Salad,vegetable, protein, possible brown rice/sweet potato

Tonight I ran for 20 minutes but heat and lack of food overcame me (tried to go too late/worked late) but will do strength in a few!

I'm in too. I've been doing this weight loss thing for too long & I'm ready to reach my goal. I've been trying to do it without "dieting" and instead making it a lifestyle change. I've been losing weight, but not as quickly as I want to. So, I've decided to really apply myself this summer & hopefully make it to my goal weight by then end of August. Which also happens to be around my birthday & my husband is taking me on a cruise for my birthday.

A lot of motivation to get to my goal, but I know I've had the best results when I get my exercise in. I wear a BodyBugg which monitors my physical activity, so my goal is to average 10,000 steps per day & at least 90 minutes of physical activity per day. I set this goal yesterday & I'm proud to say that I reached it yesterday. Of course I always seem to do good during the week, it's the weekends that I'm challenged!

5/8 Steps 10,688 PA 90 minutes
5/9 Steps PA

I will update this way if it's ok.

Icamp2 Did you just start the C25K program? I've read a little about that & would like to give it a shot once I buy a treadmill.

so glad you joined!!!

icamp2 - i also started c25k but i sort of quit and started to do my own thing... maybe i should go back to it...

kandd416 - that is a LOT of motivation... i agree with you the best results are when i exercise too!

so far i have done good foodwise. i am going to the gym in a bit and my goal is treadmill for about 20 minutes and then most i can do on the elliptical, then stretch.
i come home, shower, and will prepare a meal consisting of grilled chicken + salad... hmmm looking forward to it! i am feeling GREAT!

Yes I am on week 2 of C25K but honestly I am taking 2 weeks for each week. I am really out of shape and while I could push myself to do the full week each week, I am allowing two weeks so I don't feel the stress of it... Today I made it through the first 4 runs (out of six) and I started to get some shin pain, also was on the track with a perfectly fit woman who made me feel awkward (I should be a big girl but Im not lol)

I love it, I like alternating it with a basic at home strength program I found at nerdfitness. My 12 and 17 year olds do it with me. They are in shape but cheer me on when I am getting exhausted.

Kinda went overboard on food today but it happens... I won't beat myself up...

It's only been two days & I'm still on track, but the weekend is coming & that's usually my least active days. I'm committing to getting my butt out of bed & working out. I usually get up early but sit around & drink my coffee while I watch the news. Then by the time I'm awake my husband's ready to go, so instead of working out I just hop in the shower & roll out.

Not this weekend though, I'm going to be on the elliptical within half an hour of waking up!

What's everyone's weekend goals?

I did not exercise today, I had full intention but began the day taking my daughter to ER at 5 am, worked until 6, took my other daughter to school dance at 7, shopped, picked her up at night and now have extra kids... plus getting 4 new foster kids on Monday and so ... exercise just did not happen. Will be running in the morning though!

Ugh, so you can obviously see I didn't do quite so well over the weekend. The good thing is that I did get my butt up & on the elliptical both days this weekend for 20 minutes. But even with this, my total physical activity on Sunday was on 43 minutes! Horrible. I'm going to try to increase my amount of time on the elliptical a little each day & try to get where I can go for 30-45 minutes. Right now I have rubber legs after 20 minutes or so. But I can see that I'm starting to be able to go a little longer, so progress is being made.

Now I just need to continue with the exercise & make improvements with my eating. I don't know what's going on with me, but my weight shot up Monday morning, so I'm now almost 2.5 pounds up for the month. I know it is probably just something I ate or drank that is making me retain water, because noone gains 2 pounds overnight! But I still don't like it!

Icamp2, I hope everything is ok with your daughter. It sounds like life is stressful for you. Just keep sticking with it & if you fail, get right back on it. You can do this!

Loser, regroup & retry. One thing that helps me improve my eating is to actually plan my meals. It takes a little time, but it really does help. Plan what you're going to eat, grocery shop accordingly & pack up your portions a day or two in advance. It so helps me when my eating starts to feel out of control. I'm going to take my own advice & plan my eating for next week.

Have a great day,
Kim
