Another long-overdue update:

New goals for October 2012:
1) By October 31, 2012, lose 10 lbs.
Extended the deadline from September, since progress last month was halted by an arthritis flare-up.

2) Complete a 30-day run of Pilates advanced mat workouts.
Got through 20 out of 30 days before arthritis flare-up stopped me in my tracks. I will put this aside for the moment while I work on regaining some lost cardio form and strength.

3) Complete the Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown six-week program.
Putting this on hold for a little while. Want to finish current cardio/strength cycle and then the Pilates goal before I tackle this. Also, need a better mat so I don't slide all over the floor.

4) (NEW) Do 4 weeks of Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones to regain lost cardio and strength, before tackling goals 2 and 3, above.

Goals I have met:
1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
2) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
3) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins. (weigh daily, track weekly)

Goodness! I need to keep up with this journal more often. I've been pretty lazy about tracking progress overall these past few weeks -- although sticking to my program for the most part. Time to get back on track with tracking as well as working.


Need to keep going with current goals and add some new ones, I think:
1) By September 2012, lose 10 lbs.

In progress. 3 more lbs down, for a total of 13 lbs lost since I re-started my program. These 10 are going much more slowly than the last 10.

2) (New) Complete a 30-day run of Pilates advanced mat workouts.

Started with Day 1 today.

3) (New) Complete the Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown six-week program.

I will tackle this once I have completed the 30 days of Pilates.

Goals I have met:
1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
2) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
3) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins. (weigh daily, track weekly)
4) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
5) Complete the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones workout (4-week run).
6) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

Gosh, it's been a while since I posted an update here. Still doing well, and trying to stay on track with my goals.


Current (re-set) goals:
1) By September 2012, lose 10 lbs.

In progress. I have lost 2 more, for a grand total of 12. These next 10 seem to be really sticky pounds, so I've started to change my diet and work out a bit to see if that will help.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

Started working toward this goal effective this morning (21-July). I haven't done Pilates in months, so I did a beginner workout this morning, and my muscles feel nice and stretched. I found the core work much easier than I used to, which is more proof that Jillian Michaels ab shredding has improved my strength

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones workout. Start on Monday 11th June, and continue for 4 to 6 weeks, depending on progress.
Done! I love the No More Trouble Zones workout, but my muscles are sore all the time these days. I think that switching back to Pilates will help with this.

Goals I have met:
1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
2) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
3) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins. (weigh daily, track weekly)
4) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
5) Complete the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones workout (4-week run).

Time to set new goals:


Current (new) goals:
1) By September 2012, lose 10 lbs.

At that point, I need to re-evaluate my overall weight loss goal to see if it's still realistic. Even though I've lost only 10 lbs, the changes in my body shape have been significant and I have lost several inches. I set my original goal based on the BMI and height-weight charts, but I have a feeling that I'm meant to be heavier than average for my height.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones workout. Start on Monday 11th June, and continue for 4 to 6 weeks, depending on progress.


Goals I have met:

I am so pleased with myself. I seem to be making good progress toward my goals.

Progress so far:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
Done! I have officially lost 10 lbs since the beginning of this renewed quest.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
I still have not done much Pilates lately. I need to pick this one up again.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
Finished!!! What a difference. I feel fitter and leaner, my weight is down by 6 lbs, and I have lost several inches -- 3 around my waist alone! I'm taking it easy with a daily low-impact cardio while I figure out what high intensity challenge to tackle next.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.
I have resolved this dilemma by weighing daily, but only tracking my weigh-in results on Friday mornings. I get the daily feedback I need to stay on track, but my reporting is based on a weekly consolidation.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
Done! I tried on the Bond Girl bathing suit the other day. DH stopped in his tracks. I went out and bought another pretty bathing suit too!

6 lbs down. Past the halfway point.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
I have not been doing much Pilates lately. Need to refocus on this goal

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.

Getting there. Still haven't tried on the suit, but tried on a very fitted dress that I've been waiting to wear. Was able to do up the zipper (yay, me!), but I still don't look smooth enough in it to wear the dress in public. Let's see how things look when the rest of the 10 lbs are gone.

5 1/2 lbs down. Yay for me!

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
Pilates is still on the backburner while I complete the 6-wk ab shred.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
Week 5, Day 3. WOW! I can really feel a difference in my body's ability to execute the Level 2 movements. And seeing differences in the contours of my body.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.
This just isn't working for me. I need daily weigh-ins to keep on track. My compromise is that I'm only recording weight weekly, so I'm monitoring without obsessing.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
Haven't tried on the Bond GIrl bathing suit yet. Wore another bathing suit over the weekend, and it is fitting much better than it used to.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
Week 4, Day 2. WOW! The Level 2 workout is significantly more intense than the Level 1. My fitness level must have improved during Level 1 in order for me to even get through this one.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.
I find myself needing to weigh daily to keep on track. I need to re-evaluate this goa,.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
Haven't tried on the Bond GIrl bathing suit yet. Wore one of my other bathing suits over the weekend, and felt pretty good in it.

I am a work in progress. And I feel like I'm making progress. I have been diligent about tracking my food intake and workouts, and it's making a world of difference. After about a year on SP, although I continued to work out a lot and tried to eat healthfully, I was not tracking at all, and I think that was a huge reason for my backslide. It's very easy to eat more than you think you're eating. The chocolate-bar-a-day habit didn't help matters either, nor did all the baking.

Re-focused, with a solid long-term plan in mind. Seems to be making a difference. We shall see...

Progress so far:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
Slowly the weight is creeping downward. I am being very mindful with eating.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
Pilates is still on the backburner while I complete the 6-wk ab shred.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.
Week 2, Day 2. I can feel the difference in how I execute the movements. The workout still kicks my butt, though.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.
Still weighing daily. I find it too easy to get off-track without that daily milestone. Maybe I need to re-examine this goal.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit.
Waiting a few more weeks to try the suit on. I want to have a goal to aim for, not an "impossible dream".

Whew! The weekend at last.


Progress so far:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.

Proceeding according to plan. Had a terrible first half of week 1 with eating, but started to get into better habits by the end of the week. Following through.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

Still focused on the Ab Shred, so Pilates is a bit on the backburner for now. I will try to do Pilates on the weekend so that I don't lose too much ground.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.

Week 1 done, 5 to go.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.

Still weighing daily. Trying to cut back gradually

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit that my darling Husband bought for me.

I want to wait a bit longer until I've made further progress on my fitness and weight goal before I try on the suit. To do so now would be discouraging.

Progress so far:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.

Getting back on track with eating. Went back to the SP Quick Start to remind myself of the good eating habits with which I started this journey.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

I've started the Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack, so I haven't been focusing on Pilates. I will try to fit in a couple of pilates workouts on the weekends, so that I don't lose ground.

3) Complete the full Jillian Michaels 6-week Six-Pack workout.

Started yesterday at level one. Completed Day 1 and 2 of week 1. So far so good. I've done the workout several times before, but never with consistency.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.

Small progress. I have been able to weigh once per day rather than several times per day. For me that is tremendous progress. I will try to cut back slowly, but I think while I'm getting my eating habits back under control I feel as though I need the visual cue to keep at it. Perhaps when I start seeing some concrete results it will get easier to weigh in less often.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit that my darling Husband bought for me.

Still haven't tried on the suit. I should though, so that I can have a Before image to go with the After that I'm trying to achieve.

Progress so far:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.

Easter was a bit of a setback. I dove head-first into baking, and EATING, piles of delicious desserts. All reduced-calorie versions, but still, 5 cupcakes with reduced calories is still 4 1/2 too many. Back on track as of this morning, now that the leftovers are finished.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.

This goal is coming along nicely. I've been working away at it, and was able to complete 2/3 of the advanced moves properly, and completed the rest with modifications. Day by day I will get there.

3) Complete the full 6 week Ab-Shred workout.

I've been focusing on the Pilates workouts at the moment, so I haven't been doing the Ab Shred. I need to set a target date for this goal, so that I can keep myself honest and not let it slide indefinitely.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins.

I have been very very bad with weigh-ins, weighing myself every day and sometimes multiple times per day. I need to designate a day and time for this, to help break the habit.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit that my darling Husband bought for me.

I haven't tried on the suit yet. Once I feel a bit more "in the groove" with workouts and weight loss I will start.

Bummer. Per doctor's orders, I have to give up running. Permanently. Or face serious mobility problems as I age. So, I think I need to revise my goals a bit, since running 5K is no longer in the cards. I can already walk 5K at a pretty good clip so setting a walking goal doesn't make sense to me.

For now, my REVISED Goals are:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
Once I get there, I will evaluate whether I need to lose more or can stay where I am. I just need to be at a reasonable starting point to gauge properly.

2) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
This means to do the full shot, without any of the modifications for less advanced practitioners.

3) Complete the full 6 week Ab-Shred workout that I've been doing a few times per week. I need to identify a start and finish date for this one.

4) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins so that I can stop obsessing over the numbers and better focus on my fitness and health goals.

And finally,
5) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit that my darling Husband bought for me.

Thanks all.

Started out with Pilates this morning, and made a promise to myself to
a) keep at it, and
b) take it one day at a time

I think my issue in the past is that I've plunged in with great enthusiasm, but then after several months of consistency I get bored and distracted. Rather than making a long-term detailed plan, I will have a set of summary goals, and then just work toward them each day until I get there.

Good luck with your goals everyone,
Trinity

Sounds like you have a great plan. I, too, just noticed this forum and have begun to journal. I am eager to have others help me stay on track. I suppose I should list some actual goals as you have done. That will be my next entry, I'm sure. Good Luck!

Funny. I've been a member of SP for about 2 years, and I never knew this forum existed until this morning.

I need to find new ways to hold myself accountable, and I guess a public forum is as good a place as any, so here goes:

My babies are growing up! My youngest 2 of 5 children are now 2 1/2 years old. It's about time that I shed the last of the baby weight. I gained about 70 lbs with them, and have lost all but the last 10 lbs, give or take. I have been working out pretty consistently for the last 2 years -- with a few layoffs for injury, loss of motivation, and yes, laziness. But spring is here, my babies are growing more independent by the day, and I'm ready to regain my status as a Yummy Mummy.

My goals are:

1) By June 2012, Lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight.
Once I get there, I will evaluate whether I need to lose more or can stay where I am. I just need to be at a reasonable starting point to gauge properly.

2) By Sept 2012, run 5K in under 29 minutes.
My running time varies from 30 to 33 min, and I'd like to shave just a little more time off.

3) By December 2012, complete a full Pilates advanced workout.
This means to do the full shot, without any of the modifications for less advanced practitioners.

4) Complete the full 6 week Ab-Shred workout that I've been doing a few times per week. I need to identify a start and finish date for this one.

5) Limit myself to once-a-week weigh-ins so that I can stop obsessing over the numbers and better focus on my fitness and health goals.

And finally,
6) By June 2012, look hot, hot, HOT in the "James Bond Girl" bathing suit that my darling Husband bought for me.
