Default March into health and wellness-March 2018 Check-in & Accountability Thread

Greetings!

Welcome to the March 2018 thread! For those who are new, Rennie, aka Love2b150 is the originator of this thread and still pops in from time to time when her schedule allows. So whether you are a long time poster, brand new or a lurker wanting to join the conversation, I want to welcome you to the March into health and wellness-2018 Check-in and Accountability Thread. Here you can post your daily weight, share workouts and way of eating (WOE) plans, struggles and successes, life adventures and anything else. This is a warm and supportive thread so please settle in and make yourself at home.

March ushers in the spring season which is a time for renewal and growth. The days get longer, the weather warmer and everything around us seems to be in bloom. This month let's commit to doing away with some of the "heavy" that has been bringing us down including clutter in our homes, the bulky clothes that define the winter months and the extra pounds that stand in the way of being the finest version of YOU! So while winter may still be hanging on where you are living let spring and all its potential take hold of your mind and spirit.

And Rennie, we know that your life is super busy but know that we miss you and look forward to hearing any updates you have.

I fell short of my goal for the first time (during a month while actively trying) last month, so I'm going to try for that same goal of 10 lbs again for March to see if I can still do it. If I fall short again this month, I may adjust to a new goal for April. But, for now, I'm going to try my best, and I am wishing everyone the best of luck this month!

Thank you Curvy for continuing Rennie's thread.

My goals for the month are to weigh in under 270 by the end of the month, prepare all meals at home (no dining out!), to move/exercise for 30 minutes or more per day most days of the week, and to drink at least three liters of water every day.

I can't wait to see what March has in store for us. Good luck everyone

This month my main goal it eating habit. I've been back from Asia for a month now. I've finish my extra courses for work. I'm use to my new schedule/routine of being on the floor full time with the kids.there is no excuses

Magicsusan: the spa/resort I'm going to is one of the highest rated in western Canada. It has mineral pool. Facials. Messages etc. It's all along the ocean front. It has little cabins on apartment style rooms. The resort is 22acres big. It look real nice. Plus because I'm going for work training everything is paid for.

Good morning and happy March 1!

Finally, after weeks of dry weather, the sky opened up and it's been since last night. What a perfect way to start the month. I had a pretty heavy dinner last night so I was surprised to see the scale was down a wee bit to 209.8.

opheliaphoenix: Well, we only had 28 days this month so maybe this had something to do with you not meeting your goal. Still, you made solid progress and we have a full 31 days this month which equals more opportunity.

Nichelle: Thank you for providing specifics about the spa where you'll do you're training. That's going to be a special experience. I will live vicariously through you!

RunningRedHead: You have some very specific goals that will definitely keep you on track. I think I may adopt your "round number" goal and work to be under 200 by the end of the month.

everyone!

Nichelle: That spa/resort sounds absolutely amazing...any chance I could convince you to shove me in your suitcase and take me with you??? Or, I guess you'll just have to let us know how it goes when the time comes, so I can live vicariously...lol. That's awesome that you'll be going to be at a place like that while away for training!


Curvy: I hope we're all able to make our goals this time around! March tends to be a good month for health, so I'm hoping it is again this year. 🍀 And, thank you for getting this thread up and running in Rennie's absence!


---------------------------------


Holding steady at 192.8 yet again...third day in a row now. Better than a gain, but still frustrating! Hoping to see a loss or even a whoosh soon. I did a 5.5 milk walk last night, but I was really low on water overall, so going to try to balance that back out today. I only got in about a liter yesterday, which is better than nothing, but not very good. I've also been keeping at the high end of my cal range. If I don't see some downward movement in the next couple of days, I may pull back a little and just cycle higher days in instead and see if that does the trick!

Thank you curvynotlumpy for starting this thread again and I hope Rennie is doing well (thinking of her).

My goal is to keep exercising and eating healthy and hydrating. What I really want to see is if I keep this up for 4 weeks, how much weight will I really lose. Because I've been so inconsistent in the past, I haven't been able to really measure the effectiveness of what I'm doing.

Wishing everyone great success this month!

01: 37 minutes upper body/cardio workout

Hey all, I'm Cheryl, and this past year, since September especially (when I injured my back and dove face first off the wagon into a vat of ice cream, lol).. I've been struggling with getting back on plan with eating and exercise. When I originally did the big weight loss thing in 2007-09, I posted daily on 3FC and that really helped me to stay on plan and focused, so here I am. I saw this thread and it seems great, so I hope it's okay if I join in.

My goals for March are to get out and stay out of the 200s, and to get in at least 5 workouts a week.

03/01: 202.6 (C&J heavy/rope climb workout 5-4-3-2-1 reps for time, 19:52)
03/02: 202.2 (Bike .5mi/15 DL @123 axle/15 sit-ups, 3 rounds, 13:32; then bike .5mi/ 12 hip-x @25/8-10 DL rows @83, 3x)
03/03: 200.2 <late WI>
03/04: NWI
03/05: NWI
03/06: 201
03/07: 199.2

Cheryl welcome back and welcome to this thread

So I woke up at 4:15am and decided to just get my workout done and over with. What else is there to do a 4:15am? I went to bed at 8:30pm, thus waking up so early. The 4-hour meeting/training session that we had yesterday afternoon, with 16 people cramped into my boss' office, did me in I think. So it's now two weeks in a row that I hit my goal of exercising 6 days and drinking 2L of water each day. My boss is going on vacation for the next two weeks and I will be in charge of the store. I hope the stress won't derail me.

Hope everyone enjoys a great Friday!

01: 37 minutes upper body/cardio workout
02: 30 minutes cardio + 10 minutes standing abs workout

Hello there you all lovely and inspiring people,
I would like to join in if I may. I am now down with flu so I did not weight myself, but I will weight in tomorrow to have the number. My total goal for March will be an ambitious one of 7 kg (15 pounds). I am back into ketosis and I know the beginning weight loss is probably going to be a bigger one because of all the water I will be losing, so hence my bog goal. But to be honest, if I lose half of that, I will still call mayself happy!

Good morning

and welcome back, Ronja and jamsk8r, respectively. Ronja, I hope you feel better soon. This year's flu season has been no joke!

Martine: getting your workout in early. Might as well use your early rise time to your advantage. My supervisor is out of the office as well until next Friday. On one hand I feel some freedom as no new assignments will be coming in from her. On the other hand there is much that needs to get done without new assignments. You seem to have mad organizational and people skills that I know you'll shine!

opheliaphoenix: March is supposed to be the month of good so maybe it's not a stretch to think that we can meet our goals.
***********************
It's going to be a busy day but with no appointments on my calendar I'll be able to wrap up a few unfinished tasks. This will make the weekend feel more like a weekend. Happy Friday!

Nichelle: Nice to see you again. Your spa experience sounds marvelous; I hope you truly enjoy it!

VickieLou:

Curvy: Your goal sounds great!

Martine: It sounds like you have some great goals this month. It will be great to see how consistency pays off Way to go meeting your exercise and hydration goals!

Cheryl: back to 3FC and to the March thread

Ronja: Sorry to hear youre under the weather I hope you feel better soon.

Im pretty sure my bump up the last few days is because of sodium, despite making all the food at home. Re-examining the foods Ive made and my plan for the day and focusing on getting in all of my water (which I did not quite take in the last two days).
I went for a nice long walk with the pup yesterday and spent the day palling around and catching up with my cousin. Yesterday was the last day of unseasonable warmth (about 60 degrees) and today weve already got over a foot of snow. Taking a rest day today before meal-prepping tonight for work this weekend.

curvynotlumpy thank you for welcoming me on here. I'm afraid though I have posted in a wrong thread, sorry! With my current weight of 240 pounds I don't belong here (wish that I would though!) Sorry for the confusion....

Thanks for the welcome, all.

Got my workout in last night, despite feeling whooped after a full day of fighting with a busted fence on my property. Food was good all day, then the dogs woke me in the night and the midnight monster ate a pbj since I had nothing left in midnight snack land. Shopping and cooking today, so will try to do better. I think part of the waking at night is just eating things like bread, which jack up my sleep. I just need a couple days of not eating that stuff and I'll quit craving it. I know that, but it's impossible to reason with my midnight idiot self. Just keep swimming. Prep, eat the meals, do the workouts, that's all I have to do. Not sure why it seems so hard right now...ugh!

Ronja, no reason you can't be here if you want to. Hope you will stick around.

Going to track my weight and exercise on my first post, just edit that one, so I don't have to keep retyping everything or cutting and pasting.
