"just beachy" side challenge!!
 
okay, twenty something gals! no matter what team we are, [even though i am red-- roar!], here's the side challenge. a lot of people have the goal of staying on plan for the duration of the challenge, and i think that would be a great thing for us to decide on the side.

so, for the next 15 weeks, i'm thinking that we try to stay on plan for both
1. eating according to our respective plans
2. exercise!

for all of you guys who ended up being too late to enter this tbl challenge, come JOIN US!

allright guys, lets do this!

I do have one "cheat" day a week, not a crazy day but where I'm not so strict with the calories but as this is part of my personal plan it lets me stay OP.

i think that if you have PLANNED a cheat day, then you are on plan! :D like, i'm taking a few days off for my birthday parties [it's weird but i have five birthday events every year], and i have already mentally planned what i'm going to eat, so i figure that i am being on plan! as long as you are doing other things like drinking your water-- i'm mostly talking to myself because i'm trying to remember to drink all my water and take vitamins!

I gave myself chocolate as my one free snack. Dh is gonna be gone for 2 months, and I'll need something comforting, and I chose chocolate, lol. But I figured I'll only eat chocolate if I have the money to buy it, and only on sundays, which are my days off.




Does anyone else feel left out of the group chats?? Is it just me? LoL!!

I think as the challenge progresses, all teams will lose some people. Some people quit, some kind of disappear, some gain and get frustrated and never return...I think once the teams thin out a bit, it will be easier. (not that I'm hoping people drop off the teams, of course, but with so many people, it really is pretty much inevitable).

hey guys! day 1, is it?

my day 1 was pretty anticlimatic. my plan is really weird right now because i am in the middle of metabolic adjustment so i am trying to eat more food so my metabolism will be used to a larger amount of food again. i'm not supposed to be losing weight but i am. its really funny because its the only time i've ever been puzzled by losing weight instead of gaining it.

how was you guys' day 1?

Shopaholic1204 04-28-2008 10:57 PM

My day went okay. My eating was great..but I only worked out once. I hurt myself this morning, and then I went back to sleep, lol. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

My day 1 was OK, didn't get to exercise as much as I would have liked. I did, however, run half a mile without getting winded for the first time in a LONG time, which felt really good. I've been eating up around 1800 calories, I think, and exercising a lot, but I really think I need to bump it back down to 1600 to re-jumpstart my weight loss, especially now that the Biggest Loser challenge has started!

So, that is my goal for our side challenge: try to eat around 1600 calories a day, keep tracking everything I eat and all my exercise on the Daily Plate, try to keep my calories in vs. calories out at the level suggested on the Daily Plate, allow myself one day every two weeks where I eat closer to my maintenance level, eventually be able to run a mile in under 10 minutes, and I'm sure I will think of more. Wow, that's a lot of goals! Mainly I really want to focus on eating better, though, and stop trying to "make up" for eating poorly by exercising more.

Let's rock this challenge, ladies! (Especially the black team :lol:)
