Arrow ~~May~~ Daily Accountability Check-In Everyone Welcome!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to May! Let's make it a great month!

I want to welcome everyone to the Daily Accountability Check-In. Our goal is to stay accountable and on track by posting our daily food and exercise choices. All food and exercise programs are welcome. Consistency is the key to reaching our weight loss goals.

Introduce yourself or jump right in and tell us what you have been doing.

Does anyone have any special goals for the month they are working on?

Here's to the start of a great month!

For the start of May - 152 (though I know it's going to flip-flop)
And just running, eating right, and lots of water has helped.

Thanks for starting this thread! great idea Diana

Well i'd like to join in please

I would like to get down to 152-155 lbs by the end of may, reason being is that i'm going on holiday june 1st and will be away for 5 weeks and fear i might gain weight, so want to have abit of a cushion to gain some pounds whilst on holiday, or maintain whilst on holiday. I will be mostly staying with my cousin who is also into staying fit and healthy, so we will keep each other accountabile which will help! but also will be staying with other family and you know family they always want you to eat eat eat when you go visit them haha.

I am aiming to get some exercise in and running whilst i'm out there, and taking my gym kit!

my goals for May are:

1. mini fast with exercise protocol - which is a method i just read about in a research article. and testing it out on myself.
2. eat no more than 1800 calories.
3. exercise on a daily basis, with 1-2 days of rest day.
4. drink more water!!

Good luck everyone

so far today.

today i weighed in at 159.8lbs

i have done p90x chest shoulders and triceps, burned 285 calories. and did the mini fast protocol.
and my aim for today is to eat no more than 1800 calories.

Can I join too please?

I would like to loose between 6-8 lbs in May.

I only joined this site a few days ago, and have been reading lots of posts. I`m sure i can keep on track, with a little help

I`m trying to keep my calories between 1400-1600 day, and up my protein, cause I`m a real carb girl, and also I`m trying to eat a lot of whole foods. I made some falafel`s for lunch. Yum.

At the minute don`t do that much exercise, but have started going for long walks and doing 15 Min's on an exercise bike- It all helps right?

Take care x

I'm in again. Made some progress in April, but didn't make it to my second mini-goal of onederland. So hoping to do it in May!!! I have an endocrinologist appt in June and it would be awesome to have a 1 on the scale for that weigh-in!

Doing well today so far - had my oatmeal breakfast and then a nice 45 minute run with hills.

jar - can't believe you work for a chocolate factory! What a job!
diana - thanks for starting us off again!

topsy - welcome. I share your goal of increasing protein as I can be a real carb girl myself...

Have a great weekend everyone! Happy May!

HELLO EVERYBODY!! I loved the April Accountability Check In-- so here I am, to do it again in May!!

5-1-10

B- 1 cup raspberries, 2 eggs (whites), 1 bite of rhubarb crisp, the last slice of anniversary cake-- WHEW it's gone!

L- big ol' salad- greens, 1/2 cucumber, 1 tomato, 1/2 red pepper, handful croutons, 3T asian dressing

S- went to movies- instead of eating a whole bucket of popcorn, I ate around 4 cups... lots of water, and a few sips of Sprite

D- Cinco de Mayo celebration at the park. 1 Enchilada, 2 bites refried beans, 16 chips, 4T salsa, 4T guacamole, 2 bites of mexican chocolate cake YUM!

exercise- stretches, sit ups, push ups, leg lifts, weights, yoga
AND I changed my running/jogging time. Up from 50 second intervals to now 90 second intervals. WHEW! When I got home I was hurting but I felt so happy-happy-happy!

ped read- 6500 steps

weight- 244lbs water weight (because T.O.M.) I think I'm really around 242lbs

Hey all. Not feeling too good today. Weather has been changing from storms to sun and back to storms. Hubby and I have matching headaches, LOL, that we think are weather related. And. worse, its supposed to rain the rest of the weekend.

Special goal for the month. Work on my food choices. I've been coming in under cals, but still not losing weight, so I believe its my food choices. I don't feel I've been eating horribly, but feel that I could stick to healthier foods.

Welcome Sierra, Echo, Topsy, Jeanne! Good to see so many new people.
