Default Let's Get Crackin'

I feel like my good intentions ... progress ... habits ... have deserted me. Probably the winter blah's. I need to buck up and crack down. I think Ilene calls it "to get cracka lackin'".

One day at a time (sometimes one hour at a time) for a week -to start- and then another. I already have a date for six weeks hence when I will assess my progress.

Join me?

Please set your own parameters. Just set out those things that you need to improve ... work into regular habits ... you know. The plan a la you!

Even if we don't stick for the entire six weeks, we will have put in some time doin' good.

Plan a la Susan?

Averaging under 1500 cals per day including lots of superfoods.
Cardio that actually gets my heart rate up six days per week, no less than 20 minutes.
Weights/resistance five days per week, no less than 20 minutes.
Take my vitamins!

6 weeks ends April 8th... just in time for spring clothes. I'm in... I have to think about my goals, so I'll be back to post later.

Susan, I love when you get creative and chatty :-) Thanks!

I definitely need to get crackin'!

My Goals:

-Keep within 1400-1500 calories
-Kick the evening glass of wine habit
-Run 4x/week
-Yoga- everyday
-Post here more often
-Be more active in my daily habits (ie: get off the computer and take my dog for more walks!)
-eat more nutrient dense foods

Keeping my calories below 1500 is so, so hard for me. I am a runner and I use that as an excuse to have a second glass of wine or chocolate.

Let's inspire each other!

Hmmm - I'm becoming very lazy!
And so miss SusanB and all the rest of you guys I'll be jumping onto the wagon...

OK here are my goals:-

1. 15 minutes a day cardio MINIMUM!
2. Eating balanced meals... and that means VEGETABLES BABY!
3. Running up stairs instead of walking slowly
4. Walking everywhere.... even when its raining

I think that should do me for now; but I'm sure I'll be back with more!

@ SusanB ..... Well, Ilene is in da house and on board "to get cracka lackin" I need to be accountable too...

Here's the plan la Ilene:

- exercise at least an hour/day or more, but an hour at least
- no BLT's (bites, licks, tastes) a habit I had given up and which has now resurfaced
- STAY on PLAN on the WEEKEND!!! I hate weekends!

Me too!!

I have not been doing very well -- can't seem to get going.

So -- six weeks:
Get in my 10,000 steps a day
Get back on track food wise, I haven't eaten anything in the last week that was worth the calories!!!
No soda and lots of water.
Relax, get my organization back on track in everything I do -- it helps so much to calm my eating demons

Hi everyone! Oooo it's so fun and exciting to have you all with me!

I did good Tuesday. Just over 1500 cals, 11 superfoods, I walked and did some dance type cardio and did some arms with a focus on shoulders. And yes, I took my vitamins.

That of course encouraged me to plan better for today. I have my lunch bag packed and even have breakfast ready.

Thanks, Susan! I've been struggling lately too. Not with exercise - proud to say that's been going great. But the food, oy, I need to get cracka-lackin' on my food plan. Having to cut down calories as my weight gets lower is making me rebellious! But here we go:
  • Stick between 1350-1550 six days a week
  • No higher than 2100 on higher cal day
  • Avoid trigger foods COMPLETELY
  • Make better choices when eating out

Just what I need... a swift kick in the butt to get me started. I'm also doing the SELF challenge with a friend, so this works really well along with that...

1. Exercise 4x a week - minimum 30 minutes cardio, 20 minutes weights. Getting our new elliptical tonight AND a new weight machine for hubby, so I'll have no excuses!

2. Stick to my calorie goals (between 1300 and 1500)

3. Continue to stick with my rule of "no candy" that I made for Lent..so far so good....

4. Stop going hog wild on the weekends!

No soda today (from my 2 liter a day habit).
Forgot my pedometer today but shoveled snow for two hours (the heavy, snowman kind) so that counts!
Have eaten completely mindfully today, no binges so far.

Thanks SusanB for getting me back on track

Talking 6 weeks sounds good to me

Hi all

Yes six weeks sounds good to me - I will be flying off to spain for a weeks well deserved rest 6 weeks today. I am only just starting my weight loss plan so I'm hoping to have lost a stone by then
I stopped smoking in November to get healthier but have put so much weight on that I would probably have been better off carrying on
I just have to take one day at a time and keep smiling and not beat myself up too much if i do have a slip up.

Keep going and we'll all get there

Sharon
