Okay so today was last day of March challenge.

Body fat 23.9%

Eating the last several days all in range. On track for drinking my water. Injured my knee so working out has been sporadic. Posting same challenge for April. My birthday is April 21st, so I am going to aim for 3 weeks of good behavior and make my birthday my cheat day.

April SW: 132

Hello everyone!
I am new to this challenge. I know that we only have about 1 week left of March, but I would like to finish this challenge with you guys if that is possible. This has been a slow month for weight loss. I have only lost 2 lbs this month. I know... very sad. I have about 15 more lbs to lose and want to do that by June 6th. My small goal is to lose about 5lbs by April 19. I know that I can do that!! I just need some accountability and motivation.

- Jennifer

Goal June 6, 2013

Having a tough time on nutrition! Today was an okay day, but only because I was too busy to eat.

I had a very active day and I have drank lots of water. I am logged and in calorie range. emoticon Tomorrow is weigh in day. Not expecting good news as I have not stayed on track. But today I made a push for it. I have 8 days to get as close as I can to an 8lb loss.

But I am eating to many cookies. I have decided no more cookies or ice cream until my birthday, April 21st. I need to smack myself because i have no idea why i have eaten so many cookies, I have never had so many.

Today was a tempting day with food, but I have managed to stay on track. that hiatus last week had made me crave sugar, so it is willpower at the moment.

In range on calories, did my workout, and drinking my water. An okay day overall. i took a peek at the scale and I was not happy. Hoping for better news by Sunday.

Today was a good day and I needed it because the last week has been hit or miss. With midterms, TOM, and being sick my workouts and my nutrition have been very off.

Today I drank my water, logged all my food and stayed in range, and got in my workout even though i can only breather out of one nostril. emoticon

11 days to go! I am going to try to hit my nutrition and fitness goals for rest of month and see where the scale leaves me. emoticon I missed my last weigh in with all the chaos. I will weigh in on Sunday. emoticon

I have been trying to lose about 10 pounds a month, for march and again in April, with my goal date of May 1st! My reward is to go shopping! But just like everyone else here, its been hard. Going out to eat is one of my hardest temptations, i have been trying to avoid it this month, and when i do go out to eat i need to remember to avoid alcohol and dont eat anything deep fried! Stick to the natural foods, that dont seem too complicated!!

I started March 1 at 142, I have lost 4 pounds.. so not as much as I would like by now, but still 4 pounds down, i am super charging my exercise and nutrition over these next 11 days of March! Hope fully i can lose at least 5 pounds!!

I just joined the team and am in for this challenge! I already had about 6lbs in mind to lose for March, so this is a great motivation to go for even more!

March 1 - 154.4
March 19 - 150.6

4 down, 4 more to go! Kicking it up a notch the last 2 weeks of March!
Gotta get those lbs in while I can before the TOM monster hits at the beginning of April, don't you hate that disruption to a good losing streak?! lol just means us ladies gotta work all that much harder!

"Being healthy feels better than anything tastes!"

Working on multiple 10 lb goals, just one at a time! Just 10lbs... :)

tracking works for me too. Welcome to the challenge!

today was a hard day i had my meals all planned, but a client instisted on taking me to lunch, a fancy little Italian place. she was offended I was trying not to eat much because I had no idea how to track it. I found a few things and picked at it. I logged, but I am really unsure of my daily totals...

did half my planned exercise, slept through the rest on accident

drank my water

looking forward to trying harder tomorrow to stay on track. If I can make it to the weekend, the stress of school will be low for a couple of weeks and that will help me with my diet, exercise, and sleep.

i really want to hit 130 this Sunday when i weigh-in. So i need to try harder. Stay focused. forgive myself for mistakes and move on with it.

I always end up starting these latel - lol!
I'm all in and I'm going to try to lose 8 lbs this month.

Start weight: 154.2 (3/12/13)
End weight: 144 (3/31/13)

I know in order to do this, I'm going to have to track everything I eat, which is really hard for me at times but it has to be done. Tracking always works for me.

Good luck to everyone!!

today was a bad day. I planned breakfast, but then didn't eat until almost 3pm after being awake for 12 hours :( needless to say, I ended up not sticking to plan. Bad nutrition day. I also went over on my calories by 56. I didn't drink enough water today. My workout was lacking in ambition. TOM is coming and it is effecting my willpower.


Tomorrow will do better. Breakfast planned and packed. snack packed. dinner planned.Workout planned. Now i need to follow the plan!

weigh in day
SW March 11- 134.8 24.9%BF
CW March 9- 132.0 23%BF

Still logging, staying focused on what I am eating and drinking is key for me in the phase. My exercise level is high enough so I need to be more mindful of fueling my body. I am considering trying to reduce my added sugar to less then 25g or 6 teaspoons per day. It isn't that easy. I did some reading and at the grocery store it seemed everything not fresh has added sugar. Maybe I will make that my April goal and focus this month on staying in my ranges. Is anyone else counting their added sugars? How are you doing it?

How is everyone attacking this months challenge? Let's make this next week and even better week.

Today was an okay food day. I drank my water and did a weight workout. tomorrow I have my high intensity day, so keeping an eye on my goal will be important.

I am all logged. Reach calorie goal, water and exercise. emoticon

Today I had a plan, then by lunch i got off track a little bit. i had packed my lunch but ended up going out for lunch. I was the jerk on my iphone looking up the menu so i could log things and see how it changed my day. Over all not to bad. I had a french onion soup and half the small caesar. I was surprised I wasn't hungry after and just in case I had an apple in my bag. I like soups because due to the liquid they are more filling.

I am in calorie range and logged for the day. The last days have been a little low in range so tomorrow I will aim to hit a little higher on the range. emoticon

Water drank emoticon

I had a tough workout today of 45 minutes of burpess and then later in day I did a strength circuit. emoticon

I need to sleep more. When I don't sleep well, I don't eat well. I also don't study well and it is a bad cycle. I also have to be sure to not eat stupid stuff when I study. I bought an air popper. emoticon

Michelle -

I have found that cardio type workouts can increase your hunger because you are using immediate fuel. Try eating more protein and fiber rich carbs. After a long workout I will usually have a protein shake, a small chocolate milk, or an banana. Don't skimp to low on fats because that will also help you feel full longer.

Just be sure it is a small snack and not to heavy on the calorie budget and of course log it. I tend to try to plan my post workout snack earlier in the day when I plan my food for the day to ensure I do not go nuts, then I pack the snack in my gym bag so it is easy to get too.

First day in the challenge went pretty well. I stayed in my calorie range for the first time in weeks! Still if I want to meet my gaol I will need to eat less. I did a good long run, which usually makes me ravenous.

Athleticbody, how do you keep from eating a lot even with your big workouts? Any tips?

I'm joining this challenge!

Start weight: 135
Goal: 127

Burning enough calories with exercise is no problem for me, but I need to stop eating so much while I study because my calories continue to go over. Please check my food logs to make sure I'm on track!

had a good workout in boot camp this morning and a Reggae class too. Food is tracked. I am in range and I feel motivated. Almost done with my water for the day. I need to make sure that if it is not on my log I do not eat it. I tend to munch when I study...

emoticon Let's do a challenge to lose 8-10 pounds in February!!! STARTING MARCH 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. emoticon

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. Spring is coming.

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