Default September Boot Camp



Come on in! This thread is not for the faint of heart. This challenge thread is for those who want to make a commitment to setting goals, formulating plans to achieve those goals, and just plain work your butt off!

Set the goals of your choice. Pick a diet plan of your choice. Pick the exercise of your choice. Pick the method of accountability of your choice whether its a food journal, personal coach or Fitday.

Its a fact that if your set your goals, make a personal commitment to achieving those goals, and are personally acountable each day, you will be much closer to achieving what you want than if you just flounder through unfocused on a daily basis.

That's what this thread is all about. Its about being focused. No whining, no griping, no negative stuff. Bad days happen and in boot camp we just pick ourselves up and move on.

State your goals and how you're going to achieve these goals and lets be able to post positive results on September 30th.

Be realistic and join in at any time.

And let's HAVE FUN!

Here's my goals and my plan for September:

1. Break the 250 barrier and lose six pounds this month.

2. Improve my endurance for cardio exercise.

3. Continue to work on the core muscle groups.



Here's my plan and tools to help me achieve my goal:

1. Journal food and monitor calories, fat, etc. using Balance Log.
OP = under my calorie budget for the week per B.L.

2. Food plan will be focusing on lean means, good fats, and good carbs. South Beach book will be used as a guide and inspiration.

3. I will shoot for six hours of exercise a week. That includes doing strengthbuilding and toning exercises; WATP tapes and spinner work. Also walking the dog every day. I will aim for control and strengthbuilding instead of just increasing minutes. I will work more intensely.

4. I will do and not hope!

So far, so good for Day 1.

I've got all my food logged into Balance Log. I've exercised today as well. I've done housework, the 1 mile WATP, 30 mintues on the spinner and will take the dog for a nice walk this evening. As its cooling off, he and I can speed up!

Now I'm off to shower and clean up before the SGD and her boyfriend gets here for dinner.

Talking count me in!

Since I actually managed to make my weight goal for August, I'm feeling all jazzed and ready to kick butt in September, albeit with a lower weight loss goal.

September Goals:
- looking to average a loss of 1.5 pounds a week
- exercise 1590 minutes (that works out to about 6 hours a week)
- swim 30 laps (1500 meters) in 60 minutes

How I'm going to do it:
- continue to track my food/exercise in DietPower
- the evil trainer - we've figured out how I can still work out with him
- don't let the sh*t from life drag me down and make me lose sight of my goal!

I think those should do it, now bring on September!!!

Howdy Pam!

Girl, you rock. Look at where you are on the scale!

I like your goal about not letting the crap of life derail you. Looks like August was a hard month for us all.

Let's kick some a$$!

Thanks Terri! I'm feeling pretty darn proud of myself! And here's hoping that September will be much easier on us all.

Good morning!

Quick report for yesterday.

Food wasn't too bad. I definitely need to get the fridge stocked up so I don't have to eat from the cafeteria. I had a wonderful polynesian chicken salad - only problem was that it was about a 1/2 cup of chicken which is not enough protein for lunch. But there was lots of fresh fruit; very refreshing and I intend to duplicate for future lunches. I was hungry in the afternoon and needed peanuts.

I didn't get home in time to do any spinner work before our church class. But the dog and I had a great 30 minute walk afterwards. Its much cooler so we can walk our full walk again and walk briskly. So hey, 30 minutues is better than zero!

Already this morning, I've done the one mile WATP. Tonight, I will do 30 minutes on the spinner and a 30 minute dog walk.

Have a great day!

Lightbulb what I've learned.....

Apparently I can't have just a few pistachios....Other than that, the food was good yesterday, but I didn't hit the gym - I did step ups instead (the evil trainer would be so proud).

Plan for today -
NO PISTACHIOS (they're all gone anyways)
Cardio at the gym on the way home

Yay! September goals! My goal for the month is to break 140 and to exercise 6 days a week. Yesterday I did weight training and today I'm going roller blading.

Hi Genesis!

Today went well so far. I did the 1 mile WATP tape this morning and only did 20 minutes on the spinner tonight. I'll walk the dog for 30 after dinner.

Food has been fairly good too. I went to the store tonight and DH is making some chicken salad so I'll have lunch tomorrow. I need to break the little snack habit that has crept up at work by not having enough of the right foods during the day.

Have a great evening and successful day tomorrow!

Had a good day yesterday food and water-wise, and I also did 65 minutes on the Elliptical at the gym.

Today however I'm feeling RAVENOUS! Of course that means it's about 1 week away from TOM showing up.

Hi ladies,

I haven't met my exercise goals the last two days. I haven't felt great but food has been within reason. I have some hormone stuff going on so I've been hungry. When that's happening, its hard to keep food within reason.

I just wanted to wish each of us a good weekend and an on track weekend. This is where I usually lose it. But I'm going to make super effort and especially in getting caught up on some of my exercise goal. Damnit all, I want that scale to dip into new numbers this month!

Have a great one!
