I am on track for food, water, and exercise. emoticon

Looking forward to being more consistent in March. I started this month off well and then mid way through lost control of my eating. I have been about 70/30 which is fine for maintenance, but not for fat loss so I am stepping my game up. I do not like not feeling like myself.

LAST DAY OF FEB CHALLENGE:

I did not stick fully to my plan and that shows in the results. In between Sept and Dec I put on weight and I am determined to take it off. That means my nutrition is key. The next four weeks consist of tracking everything and making a choice to NOT go over my range or below it.

Results:
Starting 138.5/ 25.3%body fat
Final 135.0/ 24.9% body fat

Final GOAL is 20% body fat which is back to about 120 pound.

My eating is back in order. Thank goodness! I a finding ways to get a little more sleep and that helps a lot. When I am sleeping I am not eating, plus I am more energized to workout.

In range for the day, did a circuit workout, on track for water and all logged. emoticon

I am looking forward to kicking some butt next month and losing the extra pounds that do not make me happy. I am a fitness trainer and athlete... I know what to do, I just need to do it.

Life has been chaos and I have not been online to report how I am doing in a few days. I am getting in my exercise and drinking my water. My nutrition has been a struggle. I had to work Sunday morning so I missed my weigh-in. I will weigh in at the end of month for a total.

Next months' challenge will be posted by tomorrow. Let's try again to stick to our eating, water, and fitness plan to burn those calories.

I will lose 8-10 pounds in MARCH! Join me.

Had a couple of struggles yesterday and today! I went over my range by 100 yesterday and today I am just within it. I had every intention of going overboard this afternoon but instead decided to log into SparkPeople. I just have to maintain my focus over the weekend since Monday is weigh in day for me!

Goals for tomorrow: full body workout and stay within my calories. Please feel free to friend me! I enjoy giving support!

Happy Friday emoticon

I weigh in on Sundays. Weigh in on your regular day!


Today was an okay day. I had a few too many sugar cookies, but I am still in my calorie range. I got in some exercise and I have drank water. Tomorrow is a tough workout day. I am not sleeping enough, so I am off to bed early tonight (still not early enough).

Today was a good day for calories range.
I drank my water
I got in 2 short workouts. Had to talk myself into getting to the gym tonight, I was so tired, but I got there and I did it.

I am prepared for my long day tomorrow, food logged and meals packed to take with me to keep me from getting off track.

I'm starting very late but I would like to join. In the past 6 months I've gained 10 pounds. If I can try to lose 2 lbs per week for the last couple of weeks of Feb, that'd be great.

I hope you all meet your goals!

I am in! After my first week lost 3.6 pounds where my goal is 2 pounds a week, so I am up for the challenge. Today's goals:

Workout DVD and stay in or under calorie range.

ATHLETICBODY21, good job on moving past a couple of not so good calorie days. I had a few binging episodes myself last week. You just have to keep moving forward, and I am sure you will reach your goal.

I will report back later. Good luck everyone!

2/13 took me on a down hill spiral. I was doing fine until I got home from work late Wednesday night. I was past hungry because I hadn't eaten much. I stopped and got Mcdonalds. emoticon I went way over calories for the day. 2/14 a friend of mine took me for cheesecake for Valentines Day. Friday, I was back on track and doing well until a case of no self-control hit me and in the last hours of the day I ate and extra few hundred calories... Sunday I went to get my hair braided and what was suppose to take 3-4 hours took 7 so no workout, plus poor eating as I hadn't planned to be there that long and therefore was under prepared on food. I ate fast food on the way home emoticon

Needless to say I did not lose any weight. BUT today is Monday and I am back on my plan. Month is half over and I am not close to an 8pound lose, so now I am going to just see how close I can get. I am also behind on fitness minutes so it is time to turn things up a notch.

This is for me and only I can do it. I will touch base later and update how my day went. Now off to fill my water bottle so I can drink.

2/11: calorie goal 1600

A good day. I ate a little under range which means I have a few calories I can add on later in the week if needed. I am calorie cycling between high and low days. I got in 1204 calories yesterday. The calories for the week at 9100. I am alternating between a 10850 and a 9100 week this month.
GOALS MET
water
track food and not over range
exercise

Yesterday was great for water intake emoticon ... Not so great for everything else. Snow storm kept me inside and instead of working out I ate. I started just by eating healthy things, but well I went 300 calories over (darn nachos I made)! emoticon Since today was suppose to be my day off exercise i will do today what I did not do yesterday. I am calorie cycling so as long as I do not go over 1100 calories for the day then I am still in my weekly budget. My calorie weeks are running Mon-Sun. 1100 is low, but well yesterday I had 2100 instead of 1550.

Water in progress for the day.
I already did 40 minutes of a circuit.
I pre-planned my meals and put them in my tracker.

NOW all I have to do is stick to the plan and I will have a successful week.

Weekly weigh-in 135.6 so back down to wear I was two weeks ago. I didn't get to do body fat, but will do tomorrow hopefully. My waist is .5 smaller and so are my thighs! I am having a tough time with water so start early and fill a four cup bottle. I track how many bottle finish.
Exercise is going okay. At least I am back on my own workout plan instead of just training others. My ankle is holding up so far. Tomorrow is week 2 long day of burpees (45 min)

I am zig zagging my calories. This week my totals are 10,850 for the week split across the week. today I was suppose to not go over 1380, I hit just under 1300. I am looking forward to my high day of 2060 tomorrow. So far for the week I am doing well,just need to stick to my plan.

I wish other people would join the challenge, but just by posting in each day I am keeping myself accountable because you all can read it instead of it just being a private journal. Will do another lose 8-10 for March as well.

emoticon Let's do a challenge to lose 8-10 pounds in February!!! STARTING FEBRUARY 1ST emoticon

We need to weigh in each week and share if we have lost any pounds keep in mind the scale isn't the only measurement tool. I recommend also tracking body measurements as these can change before the scale.

Very important to record your starting weight. Then by tracking our food, fitness, and weigh-in/measurements we can get a whole picture of how we are doing.

Let's get fit!! emoticon

This challenge will focus on tracking our food, water and fitness minutes. In order to get max results and better health each are important. So, each day we will check in for motivation, encouragement, inspiration and support for ourselves and others. We are a community with a common goal.

When we post we can say what we did well in our day, what if any challenges we had, and where we could use support. Make sure to mention how you did with your eating plan and also what type of workout you did. I know it is cold outside for many of us so we will have to be creative.

In addition if you need an little extra encouragement to workout join the fitness minutes challenge for February as well.
