Default 7 Day Motivational Thread Starting 10/17/11

Who's in?

For the newbies that don't know me, I'm the lone guy here. I would leave but I don't think the ladies will let me. October is breast cancer awareness month so I'm doing a Susan G Komen walk for the cure. I'm currently raising money to help fight breast cancer. I am just $75 away from my $1,000 goal (which stated off as a $150 goal :eek). If I reach $1,000 I promised the ladies that I'd make a YouTube video thanking my supported, while wearing PINK! I don't wear pink. Pink and I go together like oil and water. If I hit $2,000 I'll throw in some pink shorts and if by some crazy chance I get to $3,000 I'll wear a pink tennis skirt AND shave my legs!

For the regulars, in case you missed it I made a YouTube video trying to squeeze the last $75 out of someone (yes, that's me at 181 pounds, and yes... I need to shave, remember I failed at that goal.)

Hi...I just signed up for FitDay tonight because I need something to try to keep me on track with this weight loss attempt. Somehow if I write things down for others to read, I feel accountable. In addition to having to read and write most of my time because I'm working on my PhD, I'm in a fairly high-stress, somewhat sedentary job, so I have to make an effort to get up and get exercise during the day. Here are my goals for this first week:

1. Drink at least 2 bottles of water a day and limit my coffee to two cups. (This may not sound like a great effort, but it is!)

2. Walk two miles (at my local walking track) on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

3. Log everything I eat, and stick to my menu plan.

4. Friday - swim during my lunch hour.

Enough for this week - I need to look at this as a lifestyle change!

October 17, 2011: 180
Goal: 140

Welcome to fitday! Just make a list of what you plan to do over the next 7 days. Check out the old thread (just below this one) if you need some ideas. I just posted my goals above. Hopefully that may help too.

Mike You are on your game tonight I barely posted Sundays goals and actuals and now I am planning next week I don't know if I can take the pressure.

Hi 4_boys_mom Just pick a couple goals you are working on and post them then check in whenever you can during the day to say hi, everyone is so wonderful and helpful, then we post how we actually did on our goals at the end of the day.

Exercise daily:
Squats daily:
Ab work daily:
Calories less than 1400 daily:
Calorie deficit of 5000 for week:

Darlene, sorry for the pressure. I figured I'd get it started before I hit the sack. It's 12:00 somewhere. I guess I'm 3 hours early for you. Hey at least you can say that you were early to the party!!!

Squats and abs daily? Gotta give the muscles a rest girl.

So true its only 9 here though. I just checked out your video the unshaven looks works for you so its not to tragic for your gf that you failed that goal. Hope to see you in pink. Yw.
I am not doing intense abs right now and the trainer at the gym said you can work abs daily so we will see I am also doing normal squats not those killer ones you posted lol. If my calf doesn't heal I wont be making that goal anyway, but I love how much better I am feeling with the consistent exercise plus I am not working what else do I have to do but clean my house.

Tonja Nice goals to start.

Have a nice night.

She actually hates when I have a fresh shave on my face and head, she says I look like I'm 20. Ha! I wish. Good night ladies, I'm out.
