My attempt to say something about everyone so far. I'm about to get super busy, so I'm trying to squeeze this in now.

It is one of those things that was a bargain so I bought it even though it was a little too snug figuring it would fit soon enough. Unfortunately, the scale was moving in the wrong direction and I never wore it until today. So yeah, the scale doesn't tell the whole story especially when it is that TOTM.

I'm keeping my goals pretty much the same. Last week I didn't get my miles in, and I only managed one kettlebell session, so I'm really going to focus on getting it all in this week.

My goals:
-Keep carbs, fat and protein at 40/30/30.

-Plan and prepare ahead so I don't come home at 5:00 having no idea what I'm doing for dinner.

-Get weight below 150.

-Walk 20 miles on the treadmill.

-Strength train with kettlebells at least 2x

Hope everyone's week will get off to a good start.

Congrats on the skirt. More power to you for doing 20 miles on the dreadmill. I find the road so much easier. This week you WILL get in your miles! Planning ahead is key, when I don't plan, I fall flat on my face... well gut.

Preach on sister!!! Nice list of goals... and don't blame me for your PITA.

Oh and Tori, I totally don't mind if you hijack the thread to harass Mike. It's actually pretty amusing. And did I mention last week that your before/during pics are AWESOME, well the second pic is awesome, the first pic is clearly your fat older sister lol. Good job lady, keep it up!!!

I can take being harassed... but I can dish it as well.

-1600 cals
-2 fruits and 2 veggies daily
-5x exercise
-20 squats daily (or until my knee gives out)
-eat more protein

Other goals:
-clean shower
-buy food scale

Starting weight is 285.

I'm not sick anymore, though hubby is down with bad sinus congestion. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for walkies.

I'm a huge fan of squats but take it easy on your knee.

So, last week was kind of a bust for me - let's just say there was a lot of alcohol involved, and possibly way too much Denny's food in one sitting than should ever be allowed. Anyway, I'm working on getting back on track... I'm kind of having a tough start to the semester - I'm not really enjoying my classes, I dread doing the homework, and just feeling generally uninspired. It makes it difficult to be excited about thing in general, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I need to find a way to make it work for me, instead of put me in a funk where I don't work out and go out drinking, ha.

So, here's to a good week!

Tori's head is going to explode! Good news... this is a new week!

Got on the scale this morning and I still have the exact 5 pounds to lose that I did a month ago. Time to get my head fully back in the game.

This week's goals:

1. Calories under 1200, no excuses, busy or not.
2. Drink a minimum of 80 oz. per day.
3. No bread, butter, cheese M-F.
4. 3 fruits and veggies daily.
5. Multi-vitamin daily.

Focus, focus, focus! You can do it. I'm pulling for you!!

I started off my Monday sitting in school traffic, then taking 2/3 of my cat population to the vet. Good times.

Anyway, similar goals. I'm going to shoot for an all-green week like my friend Mern, here! Mern, where you be?

1. Calories capped at 1300.
2. Log everything and post daily.
3. Weigh daily, beginning Tuesday (forgot this AM).
4. Drink 2 sports bottles of water (not tea, not vitamin water...water)
5. Take vitamins, calcium, and fish oil.
6. Exercise 6 times.
7. In bed by midnight weeknights, 1 on weekends.

8. Reconnect with friend who moved to NY.
9. Write out card for pediatrician.
10. Clean out car.
11. Be patient; be kind (I usually don't need to be reminded, but have unusual stressors this week!.

Here's hoping for a great week for all of us!

Wow, you took 20 cats to the vet? I agree, lets motivate each other!

And maybe if you'd stop with the feeding frenzies the scale would go in the right direction. Just sayin':p

AND it looks like someone else needs their ass kicked into gear. Pick on her this week :);)

You will not win the bet! As you see I can gain and lose like nobodies business. All I need to do, right before we do our weigh in is eat some salty/spicy crawfish and I'll gain 5 pounds of water weight for the weigh in. Then the weight will fall off for the next weigh in. YOU ARE GOING DOWN!:eek:

Bring it! I can take getting picked on, I need it. Not ashamed to admit when I need the accountability. I'm getting too 'content' if that's a word that makes sense.

If I know me, it pretty much means I MUST work out tonight. It seems like if my Monday goes well, the rest of my week goes well. If it goes badly, I fall right down and do the bare minimum/health habits. So I need the butt-kicking today!!

Yeah we still have to hash everything out on this.

Hey, that was your doing not mine. I was prepared to actually try and lose. I believe you said something like "I want her to enjoy herself". But yeah we gotta settle it, but we gotta a couple of weeks

Lizards13 01-30-2012 06:43 PM

Im in for another round of getting healthy.
Goals this week are pretty much the same only this time I'm gonna stick to them.:rolleyes:

1. Stay under 1250 cals
2. Exercise at least 5 times per week for at least 30 mins each time
3. Eat less processed foods, cook more from scratch.
4. Try a new healthy food this week.


1. Continue with my TEFL course
2. Finish organising holidays
3. Look for a small Valentine's present for BF
4. Look at flooring for hall and kitchen
5. Take large amount of bottles to the bottle bank.

Managed to lose 1.5lbs last week but I have the same again to go before I hit my lowest pre-Christmas weight. Moving in the right direction though.

'morning all
I see Tori and Mike are back at it:p. I dont' mind the hyjack, it kept me giggling all weekend. But I did spend so much time reading the posts that I ran out of time to actually post myself - but I am sure you all knew I was there cheering you on.

Julie, how great to do a little closet shopping. Yup, the scale is just a number, fitting into clothes you thought were too small... priceless.

zyxst, I agree w/Mike... love squats (well kinda a love/hate thing). Take care of the knees though. Make sure that as you squat that your knees do not go too forward of you ankles.

Tori, 4.2lbs - awesome and dang inspirational :D. I have no idea where the bet w/Mike leftoff BTW.

Julie, do take care of yourself. A little overboard, or off the wagon ain't gonna hurt, but don't let it snowball, girl.

Fit, make sure you hit those exercise goals this week. I am willing to bet (no I will not get into Tori and Mike's game) that a little extra effort on the fitness front will get you past that 210 barrier this week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Joanna, sorry about your classes. Some terms are like that. But do your best to avoid wasting time dreading the assignments and just jump in and "git er done". You will have to do them whether you dread them or not. No use wasting precious energy (that could be applied at the gym :rolleyes:) trying to avoid them.

Quinn, quinn, quinn. What are we going to do with you? One of the most disciplined, experienced, and wise women here and you are still battling those 5 lbs. Maybe they have just moved in permanently :D. Nope, I'm guessing they will be escorted out the door shortly.

CJ, ah the fun, joy, and excitement of taking the kitties to the vet. I hope your's are pretty mellow, or at least you have your kevlar gloves on.

Terri, consider this a swift kick in your ever shrinking butt. NOW is the time you need to get your sweat on - more than ever. I mean, you don't even have the weather excuse most of the other ladies have. At least drag the BF out for a long walk this evening - it'll do both of you good.

and dear Mike, How are you going to top last week's work productivity? Get your head back in the eating/fitness game. Up 0.6 lb is really just variability noise. But since I've seen you drop 3 (or more) pounds in a week... let's see you do it again..

And me? taper week before my 1/2 marathon on Sat. I took a look at the weather at it should be perfect highs in the 60s and calm winds. I am stoked. So I'm not going to post any goals this week. Just keep the calories under control, avoid but not totally eliminate white foods, and keep the pie chart balanced. Pretty much all of my house/home/ work goals over the last few weeks have been accomplished including the last edits on the manuscript I am working on. And I am pretty sure that I will not feel up for anything more strenuous after the race than climbing into the hot tub .

01gt4.6 01-30-2012 07:04 PM

Um Pam, the 1/2 is Saturday, which is this weeks, so why no goals? How about one simple goal, a time goal for the race?

All times are GMT. The time now is 10:02 PM.
