Tyla, Yes, the power of two is great. Your class sounds like fun. I did a new Jazzercise this morning called "Burlesque". It was fun, I worked up a sweat and look forward to doing again.


NO p.m. snacking with 2 pause days possible

3/2- Day 1- No snacking - I can do this, the effort is worth the results!
3/3- Day 2 - No snacking - Keep going.
3/4- Day 3 - No snacking- My body thanks me for this new habit.
3/5- Day 4 - No snacking- four nights in a row
3/6- Day 5- No snacking
3/7- Day 6 - No snacking- still think aboout it but know I can't go there.
3/8 - Day 7 - No snacking
3/9 - Pause Day #1 -(boy do I need an attitude adjustment)
3/10 - Day 8 - No snacking - & good time to drink extra water.
3/11 - Day 9 - No snacking, was a bit hungry so had a glass of milk which did the trick.
3/12 - Day 10 - No snacking, some how easier not to snack tonight-Yeah.
3/13 Day 11 - No snacking - on a roll NOW!

Day 5. Yes, you are right. So much better with two of us working together. Your class sounded great!

Today I've planned my meals, and am now going out for a walk. Going out to dinner tonight, too. (Included in calorie range.)

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!!

I have a plan to work out every day for at least 20minutes and I'll allow myself 2 pause days.
Day 1: 40minutes Jillian video workout + 20minutes cycling.

Good Afternoon. Still have to go on a walk today, looking forward to it with the sun out and no wind. Taking photos of my ds outside today for his hs graduation picture.

Velvet, glad to have you join us. You did well on day 1!

tyla, love the can do attitude. I have "I Can Do This" written on my dry erase board. How was dinner last night and where did you go?

Looks like you ladies need some company/help here, so I'll join up too! I remember the Every Day 21 challenges...I wasn't as good about logging onto 3FC back then....my goal was always to eliminate liquid donuts...ha! That became my NYR for 2014, and I've been booze-free all year! One bad, calorie-laden habit down the drain!

Let's see...so many habits to work on....This may not seem "diet"-related, but it is. I need to regulate my sleep cycles so I can avoid exhaustion--especially on low calorie days.

OK, here's the plan: I will be up by 6:30am weekdays and 7:30am weekends (when possible) and I will retire by 10:30pm. Level 3 (since there's no Level 21!)

I'm nervous...I NEVER get 8hrs sleep! especially during the week, and I never get to bed before midnight, but I need to work this out before I start up a routine exercise plan.

Challenge accepted. Thread subscribed. Major family upheaval underway!

Welcome, Seemyfeet!

Yesterday I ate 1/2 a burger and fries for lunch, and the other half for dinner. Walked after dinner.

Day 7

Thanks, workinglikeadog. You're doing great yourself! Snacking is the second habit I want to work on, after I master workout! I started this challenge (great idea for a challenge btw!) mainly because my weight loss has slowed down significantly in the last three weeks and I wanted to try something new. I haven’t seen results yet, but I only step on the scale one time per week (so, we'll see) – but I feel great about myself, I never worked out 5 days in a row before! I really want to be this healthy fit person that cannot live without workout.

Day 1: 40min Jillian, 20min cycling
Day 2: 45min warrior yoga
Day 3: 20min running, 20min elliptical, some weight lifting
Day 4: 40min Jillian
Day 5: 20min strength training with Bob Harper

Plan: To work out every day for at least 20minutes – Level 2

Good Morning Ladies. I'm working on one step at a time today, trying not to be over whelmed. Well go for a walk after finishing threads on this site. Make it a great day.

Seemyfeet, how you doing? If you can't manage your set goal, try baby steps, something smaller. You can do IT!

tyla, I had to take a pause day on what would have been day 8, I'm proud of you for starting back right away, keep up your good work.

velvet, Yeah for your strength training! I'm hoping some of your ambition will rub off on me.

NO p.m. snacking with 2 pause days possible
3/2- Day 1 - No snacking - I can do this, the effort is worth the results!
3/3- Day 2 - No snacking - Keep going.
3/4- Day 3 - No snacking- My body thanks me for this new habit.
3/5- Day 4 - No snacking- four nights in a row
3/6- Day 5 - No snacking
3/7- Day 6 - No snacking- still think about it but know I can't go there.
3/8- Day 7 - No snacking
3/9 - Pause Day #1 -(boy do I need an attitude adjustment)

3/15 - Day 13 - No P.M. snacking! - This is getting to be a habit!
3/16 - Day 14 - No p.m. Snacking - I did it again
3/17 - Day 15 - No p.m. snacking - boy do I have to work at not nibbling if I fix something (like granola) in the evening, but I made it - not even a taste of coconut.
3/18 - Day 16 - No p.m. snacking - well I made it(some how), was tired and hungry(dangerous combo).

I injured my front thigh muscle today while doing lunges with a bicep curl (like on Jillian’s video) after testing how fast I can run. It hurt so much I almost cried. Luckily it doesn’t hurt when I walk or ride a bike, so I’ll be able to continue with my plan. I hope it heals quickly!

Day 1: 40min Jillian, 20min cycling
Day 2: 45min warrior yoga
Day 3: 20min running, 20min elliptical, some weight lifting
Day 4: 40min Jillian
Day 5: 20min strength training with Bob Harper
Day 6: 30min cycling
Day 7: 20min running, 20min elliptical, some weight lifting


Plan: To work out every day for at least 20minutes – Level 2
