Hope and Joanna.........I am SO glad to see you guys back You guys really helped me stay on track and motivated last winter, I so appreciate that. Joanna, good luck training for the half marathon, it's great to have a goal like that, I've done a few 5k runs and it was so motivating to train for.

Libby sorry to hear no loss last week. Keep at it, it will come.....what did you mean by 5k exercise, walking?

Renewed soul, you are doing great with your losses and to follow such a restricted meal plan, you are obviously very committed.

Mike what a fun idea with count! I love it! I will pick that up:

Goals:

1. 3 workouts this week
2. 3 vegs/day
3. Omega 3 everyday
4. >3k calorie deficit this week

I dropped the posting on the weekend....awful stomach flu apparently. But it was thankfully brief.

Walking challenge: 10 miles in by Sunday who is in?

Smile any suggestions to change things up?

I walk 4-5 days per week, but my goal this week is to walk for minimum of 50 minutes for 3 days of the week. I walked for exactly 50 minutes today at a brisk/moderate speed (3.5 mph). Pretty good start to the week.
My next goal is to limit myself to 2 cappuccinos this week. I love those darned things.
I eat lots of vegetables, and berries, but my third goal is to try one new vegetable and fruit this week. I seem to always use leafy greens, radishes, cucumber, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, tomato, strawberries, and blueberries. Also on occassion, I use green peas and avocado. I added in raspberries, kiwi, and grapefruit last week.

Hold up now, I'm not procrastinating (this time). I just think it would be more of a challenge to do it all at once. Sunday would be my only option to do it all at once. I work M-F and my GF is off on Saturday. I may get creative and try to squeeze in 3.33 miles x 3 days (if I have the time). Not quite 10 but creativity counts for something. A couple things I forgot to mention...
1) doing it all at once would be much harder (physically) since I haven't walked IN FOREVER and everyday the heat index has been 100*+
2) my miles will not be done inside at the gym so that will be in addition to going to the gym.

So now... Are you in for 10 at one time? Don't be scared.

Goals:
1: Drink only 1 Diet Dew a day--yes
2: Don't stress about it, you'll know when you know--yes
3: Exercise when I can--no


So, I fell off again last week. A lot has been going on and it's just hard for me to keep up sometimes. But I did lose 1.8# last week. 0.8 over my goal! Woot Woot! I only got one mile in last week, and I pushed myself to do that. I've been super tired and lethargic. I went to the doctor today for follow up thyroid bloodwork and we wound up ordering more blood work for some other things that may be going on. Apparently, when you have one autoimmune disease it's easier to come down with another. yay! So, that's what's been going on. Will do my best to catch up tomorrow....gnight y'all


Oh, Joanna and Hope, welcome back!

I was indeed!

Apologies for creating a new account and clogging the system with my usernames. I just wanted to log this a new chapter.

Managed to get down to 180lbs last year, find the girl of my dreams, then hurt my knee from overuse, then collarbone gate.

However, been training a couple of months now and finally able to step it up. Wood run last night was brutal. The 7.5K course quickly turned into 9k minimum after a couple of wrong turns by our guide. So many killer hills. I mean 3 half a kilometre (I'm being conservative) of curving, steep steep inclinces, all over rough terrain.

Perfect start to the week
