It's 3 weeks into May but I just qualified for this team today. This month I've been upping my exercise as I want to be out of the 150's by my b-day on 6/4 (less than 1 lb to go!) I'm in the 4th and last week of SP's Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge and have 7 more days of the 30 Day Shred DVD. I'm making healthy food changes & am seeing the results of a new lifestyle. SP works and if I can do it, anyone can.

hello everyone! I've been reading your posts about resolutions for the month of May and I would like to add my own.
I am determined to track my food intake every day and to work outside every day. Of course I made this last resolution at the beginning of the rainiest week ever. Just my luck! However, i have managed to get outside and walk or work in my garden or both just about every day.
I'm new here (not quite finished my first week). I usually start out strong on a diet, then peter out after a couple of weeks or so, finally giving it all up as a bad business within a month. I guess my biggest goal will be to stick with everything for a full month, then move on to the next one!
I reallyreallyreallyreally want to succeed this time losing weight, so maybe that will be incentive enough to keep going!

Thanks for starting the thread, sorry I missed the first of the month. We were on a bike ride the first week and had no internet access.
I will do something outside every day, bike, walk, work in the yard. Time to get ready for summer!
One Day at a Time: 1) 10,000 steps daily 2) fruit & vegie at every meal and log 3) aerobic or strength train every day 4) 7 hours sleep daily 5) check in with SP daily
August 2014 goals: 1) Get my nutrition back under control and record daily 2) Finish the forest service quilt and wall hanging 3) Ride my bike 25 miles a week 4) Clean and de-clutter one room each week
My goal is to continue with cutting out gluten from my diet. It has helped in the last 3 weeks and when I eat it alot I have stomach issues. I am going to up my cardio to 3 x week and continue with my strength training routine.
My focus is going to eat cleaner. When I look at ingredients in boxed or processed foods I am overwhelmed. Most of them I can't even pronounce. What are all those additives (chemicals) doing to our bodies.
Bevpresley usually gets us started on this topic. Here we are at the beginning of another month ---------- WOW are nearly half way through the year. What resolutions are you making for the month?
I always think to myself - nothing will change for me if I dont change . Change is tough and its so much easier to keep doing the same thing - even when you are not seeing the results you are looking for. SO - what are we changing this month------------------- that will bring the changes we want to see and feel?
Im running 20 miles per week and doing strength training ( one hour class at my YMCA at least 2ce per week) trying for 3 times............. and I am bound and determined to eat cleaner and smarter. thats a tough one for me.............. but its what I want and need to change.

I believe weight loss is more about how much you eat - and exercise is more about toning.
