Day 1 was good for me, totally OP. Just did a 30min walk with the dogs. My knee has been bothering me slightly so I'm not pushing it. After taking it easy yesterday and sleeping with it elevated it feels great today! Going to spinning tonight for the first time :o I'm scared!

Hey Can I Join!?? I'm not part of the "Biggest Loser" challenge but I definately am going to need some extra motivation and accountability this summer so I think this will be great!

Today was not so good because I pulled an almost-allnighter last night and the caffeine and bad snack foods make me feel horrible today. But I am back on track and ready to go for a run and do weights followed by a very nutritious dinner! :)

hey everyone, can i get in on this,... if a little late!!

Ive been fine, on plan and as yet not exercised, for the simple reason my back is killing me.

Ive had physio this morning again and im gonna try and get at least 30 minutes on my cardio trainer thingy machine later on today.

Eating on plan, hoping i slip into ketosis any time now really, then i should see a nice big loss.

My day 1 went farily well. My goals for this challenge are to eat under 45 carbs a day (with one free meal every two weeks), drink at least 100 oz of water a day, and to stick with my running program. I only had about 20 carbs yesterday, and drank over 120 oz of water, and did my running.

Mesilla and Pretty Paula- of COURSE you guys can be in! the more the merrier! :D

good job on your day 1's, guys!

i woke up to find that they are changing the range on my stove, so no food until they are done wreaking more havoc on my kitchen :( i am so OVER this whole construction thing!

My day 1 went good. Went to gym, did over 60 minutes of cardio/strength dvd...and stopped when I was satisfied. Also, it was nice to see that I lost 3.4lbs in a week... def gave me motivation!!

My day 2: great. I ate when I was hungry, stopped when I was satisfied, haven't even reached 1,000 cals yet. ( I haven't had dinner yet so... )
I also went to gym, and did 55 minutes of cardio/strength dvd, so I'm right on track. =)

These last two days have been a little surreal for me. I have nasty insomnia and didn't sleep for 72 hrs. I got 6 hrs now. I actually ate less then was healthy and probably shouldn't have exercised but did anyway. My body is protesting now. Oh well, I'll take a day or two off to recover. A little worried about loosing momentum though.:(

Hey girls, so far so good. Did the spinning class last night, not for me but at least I got a good exercise in. I'm playing tennis with a friend tonight probably for about an hour, also have to walk the dogs for about 30 mins. Tomorrow is Yoga and walking. Friday is a rest day.

jayowhy - ugh I need my stove even if it's just to boil water, yuck!

littlebiggirl - I hate to hear you're not sleeping, I have trouble with that too (not as bad as you) from time to time. Have you talked to your doctor about taking anything?

Shopaholic1204 04-30-2008 11:12 AM

My 2nd day was pretty good. I think it helps that I've been keeping track of what I'm eating on fitday.com and in my blog on myspace. My legs hurt from yesterday's workout, but I'm trying to work through the pain. My arms feel great though. They dont hurt or anything. I think it was because over the weekend, I played nothing but the Wii, and my arms just got over the soreness, lol. So I'm gonna take a guess and say that it takes my body 3 or so days to get used to the pain or whatever. I'm not gonna quit. The more I do it, the less it will hurt!!!

LittleBigGirl~I'm so sorry you're not sleeping. Do you at least try to nap during the day?? Maybe your doctor can help you?

jayohwhy 04-30-2008 06:38 PM

my day 2 was okay. i'm on metabolic adjustment for the next week [which i think i've mentioned]-- which is like i'm supposed to eat normal amounts of food to adjust my metabolism again without gaining weight. it's really nerve wracking cuz i dont want to regain weight but i'm not supposed to lose it either. i planned it this way so that the next few days i can eat protein in the mornings so i can have whatever i want for my five bday events [i know its crazy but i have like four or five events every year]-- this year its

thurs night [actual bday]- family dinner
fri night - drinks at this really great lounge and 'made of honor' with college friends
sat night- dinner and bowling with church friends
sunday- hiking and dinner with former roomates
monday- alicia keys concert with best friends and sister!

so i know what i'm doing-- the plan i'm on says that i can have protein portions for breakfast, snack, lunch, and my mid afternoon snack so that i can eat what i want at an event without gaining weight.. but i'm nervous, it kind of makes me so nervous that i can't really enjoy food which is sad because its my bday-- the only time out of the year where you get your food and drinks for free plus presents!

Fat Chick B Gone- omg, it was terrible! i kept on staring from the range from afar longingly. after the workers left i cooked ALL the food i should eat today and packed it up in protest of being hungry ALL day. :P how was spinning, btw?

LittleBigGirl-- aww... i've never heard of someone not being to sleep for the reasons you stated, but it sounds terrible! i dont know what to suggest except for like.. systematic relaxation...

Apr-30: Sigh... sigh... Well, I was so tired that I skipped the gym, which I usually go before picking up my DD from daycare. But I did get to do 55 minutes of strength/pilates dvd.
I also stayed OP for eating, as I did stop when I was full.

I'm about to get off work...I think I may stop by Wal-mart to get some stuff for tomorrow's dinner and also see if they have any more workout dvds. Who would've thought I would get "addicted" to workout dvds?! I'm one of those ppl who has been to Bally's not even 10 times in 2 year I paid for...and looking at last month's exercise challenge, I worked out almost everyday! YAY!!! =)

Well, I'm going to go get some water in my bottle so I have something to drink on the way home. Have a good night everyone!!

Shopaholic1204 05-01-2008 06:54 AM

Today is gonna be a really hard day. Dh is leaving in 2 hours and I just feel sick to my stomach. We'll see how it all goes down..

LittleBigGirl 05-01-2008 07:37 AM

Hay everyone,

I caught up on sleep and I feel much better. I actually have a prescribed sleep medication but it doesn't really work for me the way it's supposed to. This is the fourth kind I've tried.:( Oh well at least it doesn't happen often. Thanks for the well wishes though.
