Longtime listener, first time caller! I'm Rosa and I have spent the last year falling off the wagon, hard, right after I lost 30 lb. I've gained 15 of those back and I want to spend the rest of 2007 losing that and a bit more. I'm planning on starting a Body-for-Life Challenge this upcoming weekend, which will coincide with me moving back into my law school apartment, with gym access. For those not familiar with BFL, it's a 12 week challenge involving a lot of weight-lifting, cardio intervals and eating small meals 5-6 times a day. Every 7th day is an off day. I'm also shooting for 3-4 longer cardio sessions per week, which is usually an opportunity to catch up on gossip with friends.

***
Change of plans - gym at school is closed until Aug 20 - ugh! So Challenge starts on Aug 19 with some cardio, and then finishes Nov 10, which happily is the date of my friend's wedding in SoCal, so I'll look awesome in my party dress!
***

Start weight - 179

August 1: Drank lots of water, did pm relaxing yoga, eating not so great.
August 2: walked/jogged around the park (~4 miles), but injured bottoms of my feet with dumb insoles, eating so-so
August 3: totally failed to work out, eating not great but not awful.
August 4: sat around the house (hot out!), eating was not too bad - loads of tomatoes and fresh whole grain bread.

Week 2 start weight - 178

August 5: finally made it jogging all the way around Prospect Park without stopping!
August 6: ate lots of good veggies but no workout
August 7: ditto
August 8: ate pizza and didn't work out because it was so damn hot out. did sweat a whole lot whilst moving some stuff back into my apartment.
August 9: 60 mins treadmill - 25 jogging, 35 walking, 4.4 mi total. Drank lots of water today and did some sun salutations with a great new yoga dvd i got, but also ate like a pig...
August 10: plan - jog around the park, do yoga, eat a lot of tofu, go to farmer's market to buy some good fruits & veggies.
August 11:

Week 3 start weight -

Well last month I didn't do so well. I made it 1/2 (roughly) to my cardio goal. But that was about it. This month I want to keep it simple as to not overwhelm myself. My goal is 1 hr. 4 days a week of cardio (tapes, walking, jogging, mowing grass, etc.) So that will be 20 hours (or 1200 mins) of cardio.
