I joined a gym a couple weeks ago and the trainer there told me that for workout days, I should drink 1 oz of water per pound of body weight. I did the math and that works out to 35 cups of water a day--kind of crazy! I have 7 water bottles in my fridge that I refill and I'm working really hard to drink them all every day. I still haven't done that many times, but because they're there and refreshing and ready, I AM drinking more.

I learned my lesson about hydration the hard way yesterday. I'd only had about 4 cups of water, took two 24 oz bottles with me to the gym and about half way through my gym's circuit (it's tough!! cardio + strength = ow!) I started to get dizzy, feel nauseated, and my muscles started to shake. My heart rate got up alarmingly high and I had to go home early. It took a good hour of drinking water & laying on the floor for me to not feel sick any more.

Water is a good thing.

Mrs - I heard Jillian's 30 day shred is a killer! One of my friends did it and got pretty decent results. She was doing other things as well, but she liked it. Hope it works out for you!

Shar - WTG, that's awesome!!

I finished my 10 day detox! Woooo! I will start my diet tomorrow!

I'm making the change that I wish to see... I'm not putting it off for tomorrow when I can do it today!

I'm starting to feel unmotivated by the scale. I know I have to give it time. And I am sure I am just gaining muscle too but still frustrated by how long of a process that weight loss is. I could gain weight by simply looking at unhealthy food but have to climb mountains to lose 1 pound. Weigh in is tomorrow and I think this will be another week of a standstill weight and no change. I did order a new workout dvd since the taking my two toddlers to the gym is such a pain. I got the Jillian Micheal's 30 day shred. It should come in tomorrow so I am going to start it Friday. Still going to add in some gym days for the stress releiver but needed something new to throw in there when my kids refuse to let me workout at the gym for more than 30 minutes.

Anybody had any success with that dvd?

It might sound overwhelming to someone just starting out, but water is truly such an important aspect!

For me to drink 1/2 of my body weight, that is 173oz... 22 cups. I don't get that, but I do get more than half of that daily!

I agree Holly, only drinking the 8 cups of water and I feel dehydrated, esp on days I'm working out. I've heard your supposed to drink half of your bodys weight in ounces a day. So for me that's 118 oz, or just under 15 cups of water a day. So that's my goal and I'm feeling better getting in more water also. :)

How is everyone doing with water intake?

I realized over the weekend that 8 cups of water is NOT enough for me. I stuck to exactly 8 cups and didn't do anything extra and GAINED over two pounds!

I am back up to my normal 16 yesterday and dropped 2 pounds in a day! (I do not promote daily weigh-ins but I wanted to check on my water levels).

Exercise + mindful nutrition + water = success!!

Also..... the Team Goals are looking great!!! More than 3/4 of the way to our SparkPoint goal (Earn 350 Sparkpoints per month) and almost half way to our water goal!! (Drink 8 cups of water per day).

The fitness minute goal could use a little work haha - remember to track those minutes guys, and if you haven't already, join the team goal (located on the bottom of the main team page, under team goals)

MMCGee, awesome on the fitness aspect! I do much better when I track EVERYTHING going in. It took awhile for me to do it, (I get lazy) but I do a lot better knowing the calorie intake/etc. And water - Very important! Try using a straw :) I find myself mindlessly sipping while I am at work.

Shar - Aw, lol, it kind of stinks when you think it would have logged the fitness minutes but it didn't. Kind of a let down :o/ BUT.... think of the calories you'll burn type type typing away haha. Finger exercise! emoticon

I need to get my fitness minutes. I thought they would have been added by watching the videos (I got spark points, I thought my fitness minutes would have been added too). I take it ima hafta log them manually... Oh poo!

I realized I've gained a lot of weight! I tried on an old skirt that I wore just last summer and now it's tight! Ima get back into that skirt!

Anyone have exercises for the back of the thighs? Lol... I need to get in the back there in shape!

I'm making the change that I wish to see... I'm not putting it off for tomorrow when I can do it today!

I feel like I've been doing well with the fitness side of this. I make a point to sit down at the beginning of each week and schedule what classes I'm going to take at the gym each day. It makes it much easier to stick to.

I've been doing pretty well with eating, but I need to improve. This week I am committing to tracking ALL food & getting at least 64 oz of water a day.

Pooka - Sometimes situations are hard to avoid, all that matters is that you pick back up and jump right back into your routine. We all stray, just don't forget to come back :) Good luck with the treadmill too, that's what I did because the gym was simply too far. It was such a hassle getting out of work and having to take the time to drive there and drive back. I was spending more time in the car than at the gym. It was awful and didn't exactly keep me motivated!

Shar - That is awesome that it's working for you!! I hadn't heard of it before you posted about it previously, so I am glad to get an update. Hooray for feeling rejuvenated :)

Hope everyone else is doing well!

So I've been doing the lemonade diet and I made it to day six! It's been almost a week! I'm proud of myself. I feel rejuvenated! My ankles aren't as swollen as they used to be and there's space for me to fondle with my anklet which I love to do now. It's been a journey. All week I've been researching healthy recipes and exercises to do when I'm done with this phase! Next it's 1-2 days on orange juice and after a brief/ almost total vegetarian lifestyle! Of course I'm an omnivore so chicken and fish will be a part of my diet, but I plan to incorporate more fruits, veggies and nuts into my diet! It's only right! I'm just glad I to rid of the toxins and I'm going to treat my body much better than I used to.

I'm making the change that I wish to see... I'm not putting it off for tomorrow when I can do it today!

It's been a really rough day for me. I'm barely hanging in here for lack of sleep, but I'm about to fix that. Kind of fell off the band wagon today when my brother took me out for Chinese food, but it was worth it to mend our relationship. I'm getting my treadmill in place tomorrow. Would have been today except for the unexpected plans. I'd love to be able to join a fitness class or gym or something like that, but I'm extremely limited on my resources, being jobless, transportation-less, and in the middle of no where. I'll probably end up trying to follow something on youtube every once in a while...

Finally broke into the 180s. Pretty excited about that!! I know that my hard work and dedication is paying off. Feels like it's taken forever but I know that I only started this jounrey 5 months ago and have had MANY slip ups. I am on track and not stopping now. I am excited about short season and bathing suit season this year. This will finally be the year that I am not horrified in a pair of shorts or a nice one piece on the beach!!

Intense workout today! 30 minutes on the cybex, 15 on the treadmill, then a 1 hour barbell strength class. I was intimidated by the barbell class at first, but I love it now. So if there's a workout or class you are interested in but unsure about, go for it! The worst that can happen is you realize you need to work up to that level before trying the class again.

I would say probably squats, lunges, anything of that nature would help your case.

Do you know of any workouts a person could do while working. I am a maid/nanny and while I have to be very active apparently that exercise isn't nearly enough. I have no money for a gym even if I had the time. So anyone know of anything.

I'm glad to see everyone doing well!!

Today is my LONG day at work, so when I get home I will be exhausted. My plan is to do some step-ups before dinner... just a burst of a workout so that I don't expect too much. If I am feeling good, I will continue with more, but I do not want to set the bar too high that I cannot acheive it.

Tomorrow, I get home earlier which means I have more time to workout and sweat!

I am also trying to get up and get going with morning workouts. It is harder this year to coordinate getting my daughter ready for the bus and to do everything I need to do to be ready for work at the same time. It is definitely a work in progress, but I will figure it all out!! If you have tips, please let me know!

I'm BACK! I used Sparkpeople last year. I wont lie, it was a struggle for me. It has always been hard for me to lose weight. I really didn't know 'what' to eat. I didn't pay attention to portion control. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and just blamed my weight on my "big bones" or my height. I know now that I cannot use that as an excuse. I am the weight I am because of the poor choices I have made all my life. I am ready to change. I want a new, better, HEALTHIER life. I'm doing this!!!

Good luck to everyone on their weight loss endeavors. Please feel free to add me!

I agree! Water is the number one thing to start with when starting fresh. It really helps detox your body from all the ick that you have put in there. That is where I always restart my journey.

How many glasses have you gotten in today? emoticon

We had a wicked snowstorm out my way yesterday and I spent the morning shoveling 7+ inches of snow (yes, shoveling.. cursing at myself for not buying a snowblower) and now my back is kiiiillllling me. Great day to be out of shape! The weekend is looking to be a sit-on-the-couch-and-try-not-to-move kind of weekend. Hope everyone else is doing well :)

Hi Amalia, and Team!

Amalia, I just moved in October and phew, I had ZERO time. It was so hectic to keep up with everything when trying to move such and get things organized (on top of working and school work). It gets better once you're settled in though! Best of luck with that!

Hope everyone else is doing well. Christmas is creeping up on us, for those that celebrate. Don't indulge TOO much :) Hope Santa is bringing everyone what they want.........

Good Morning Team! I hope you're having a Fantastic Friday so far! I'm doing okay. Still not eating the best or exercising (who has time or energy). I did however get 3 boxes of stuff out to my dads and all of my clothes packed (minus what I need to wear tomorrow) and sorted with 3 bags going to Value Village as a donation. I have another friend (maybe 2) coming over today to help me pack most of what's left and I hope to be making a healthy-ish supper. My hope is to have some sort of pasta dish as opposed to whatever junk I have lying around (like chips and whatnot). Anyway, I'll get back on track soon when I've moved I'm sure. Have an awesome day and keep on Sparking!

Good Evening Team! I hope you're having a Wonderful Wednesday today so far! I'm doing alright. I'm not back yet as I'm still busy (what with moving and stuff). I've not been eating the greatest or working out but so far that's only meant a 3.4 lb gain so I know I can get it off if I keep trying. I am going to do my best to get back on track and will try to do it while moving though that may not happen until the move is over. So, I hope you all have a great day and keep on Sparking!

Hi guys! Just wanted to check in and say hello. These lasst few weeks have been hectic for me because I am finishing up my first semester of graduate school and I had a few big papers to do. I am so close to being done... I just have one final on Wednesday and one on Thursday and then I will be done! These last new weeks have not been the best for me as far as making good choices... I haven't really had time to get much exercise in and I have been making bad food choices because I have had to get fast food some days. Hopefully I will get back on track soon and get back into a routine!

Good Afternoon Team! I hope you're all having a Wonderful Wednesday so far! I'm doing pretty good. I didn't get in any exercise again yesterday, but I ate pretty good. I hope to do better today. It is hard to want to workout when you're dizzy because you're vision is blurry. However, I am seeing the Specialist on Dec 19th so hopefully this won't be long lasting. Have a great day everyone and keep on Sparking!

EUEK098 - Thanks! I will! LOL.

Good Morning Team! I hope you're having a Terrific Tuesday so far! I'm doing pretty good. I just recently joined this team because somehow I didn't know it existed until now LOL. I am hoping to be active on this team but as I have about 12 other teams I'm on as well as some anxiety and perfectionism issues, I'll just do my best. I hope you all have a great day and keep on Sparking!

I'm just curious - I noticed on the Team Digest email that I received this morning that some people already have 960 fitness minutes in December... How is that even physically possible? Is this some sort of technical error?

Don't get me wrong, that is what I'm doing: forcing myself to go even if I don't want to. But I don't enjoy it anymore. The way I see it, if I'm going to be doing this for the rest of my life, I don't want to hate it! I think I'm just in a rut. Plus it's cold outside, and my bed is so warm and comfy! emoticon I actually tried a new workout yesterday and it was alright. It was nice to have a change of pace, but I wouldn't call it "fun" like some other things I've done. I actually hoping the fact that Thanksgiving set me back 1 lb will get me going!

Thanks for the support. emoticon
