Well hello there Pamela! Glad to see you are back, and good job on your goals. I LOVE the fitness end of this too...I feel fab @ 55, so booyah!!!

May's goals:

1. Run in the Mother's Day Race. I ran 2 miles outside yesterday and live to tell about it, so I should be okay. Ran 3 miles the day before and felt back in the zone, yay!

2. Work on the core. I will use my stretchy band and hand weights 2x a week in May. Not my fav, but this needs to happen.

3. Continue to embrace my weight loss plan. Notice the word "continue"...I have actually gotten in a groove and lost a few lol. Funny how it happens when you post it every darn day. It reminds you what you really want! Makin' wishes become reality!

Have a wonderful day all and congrats on showing up and giving yourself the time you would give your friends and family!

Yanks: BIG CONGRATS on meeting your GOALS!!!!!!!! You were in beast mode for the month...such determination. You are inspiring!!

Lisa: sorry I let you down by my lack of posting...heehee...but you have hung in here. You WILL do well at the Mother's Day race!!

It's May today!!

Pamela...Central Texas

Great job Yanks!!!! You motivate me to "go for it". I was so impressed with your 5K times, good work! And you made your weight goal, wow, you are getting it done!

Goal for the rest of April is to embrace weight loss plan. I am doing it even though I am not enjoying it yet. And I ran yesterday and did well, and plan to do so again today. Mother's Day race is looming and I need to be ready. Still formulating Mays goals, but core training is going to be in there. Must strengthen the core. My office job needs to be balanced out by exercise.

Goal to attain 700,000 steps--697,086---You can put this one in the bank also.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th. I should be able to hit this # , if in fact I don't pig out this weekend.

Take Care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I see you guys are "right there" with achieving your goals. Good job!

I have been a little derailed with no running this week, but have walked every day and have really amped up my attention to my food plan.

Starting to formulate May's Goals. Definately going to work in some core strengthening exercises. I do NOT want this to happen again to my back. Although I bluntly asked the chiropractor if running was the cause and he said no. So, whew, I can get back to my routine next week. Going to try and run a mile or two this weekend and if no pain, next week going to get back in my 3x a week routine. I miss it!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Goal this week: Stay with the weight loss program that my insurance company offers. Really need to because my calorie burn from exercise is extremely limited at the moment. So far, so good....really trying!!

BFerrell, good job on your goals! Yanks, thank you for the pic compliment! I had the most wonderful time and will remember it always. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the sun was so therapeutic after such a long, dark and cold winter and spring.

Mother's Day 5K is only 2 1/2 weeks away. I think I am just going to have to wing it because I am not allowed to run till next week. I am excited to get back to it!! The goal there will be to finish even if I am the last one in!

Well, I have been sidelined from running by a muscular injury in my back. Aargh! Chiropractor says give it at least a week. Ok, so now I REALLY have to focus on the weight loss program because I am not killing calories with exercise this week. So that is my goal for this week: Work The Food Program!!!!!

Pamela, my son does My Fitness Pal too. He swears by it. I am so glad you will still be checking in with us. You always motivate me and I look forward to your posts!

Happy Sunday from Central Texas!!

It’s another new week so look at it as a new beginning. If you did not meet the goals set last week, take a moment to reflect on what prevented it from happening and what you can do differently this week. You always have a chance to re-adjust and/or make them more realistic for “you”. There is NO deadlines to meet in working to improve our health & fitness. It should just become a way of life for you….you are worth it!

I did meet my plans with the exception of only doing half of P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps session on Thursday. I felt kind of melancholy that day due to all of the tragic events earlier in that week.

My goals for Week 4 of 4 for this rotation is shown below:

Sun – Rest Day
Mon – P90X Kenpo X (kickboxing, total body cardio)
Tue – CLX Extreme Lower Body Zone (strength)
Wed – P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps (strength)
Thu – Walking (cardio)
Fri – P90X Back & Biceps (strength)
Sat – Rest Day

Water Intake – 224 oz. per week minimum (new goal)

I will be logging food, exercise, and water on MyFitnessPal.com. I will do my usual journaling at Sparkpeople.com and a private forum, too. So many areas and buddies help with my accountability.

Everyone keep pushing towards those goals this week and even exceed a few!!


Pamela...Central Texas

So nice to see everyone so motivated! Me, too, I am back in the game.

April Goals:
1. To run in 5K on April 7th (done!)
2. To run 3x a week to train for Mothers Day 5K. Ran 3 miles last night effortlessly. I am finally becoming a decent runner!
3. To embrace weight loss class offered by my insurance company. Ok, thought this one would derail me, but so far I have lost one lb every week, so I am doing better than I thought. Yay! We are supposed to lose 10lbs in 10wks, so I am right on schedule. Who'da thunk?!

I am going to incorporate some core and arm training for May goals. Pics from Florida reminded me that my upper body isn't getting the workout that my lower body is. Gotta honor the temple!

Saturday April 20th.

Goal to walk/run/bike 500 miles---354.45,

Goal to attain 700,000 steps---541,526----It looks like these two are going to be close, I no where to concentrate, that's the beauty of these postings

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th.

Goal to train for and compete in 2 or 3 events---Yesterday I had a decent run it was about 6.1 miles. What I did was I ran the actual event course, that would be to familiarize myself with any hills, or potholes. Today no running some light biking, perhaps the elliptical and some tm use. It's raining out this morning however it's going to clear up and be perfect for tomorows event. emoticon

TGIF!! My scheduled workouts for the week are done…yay! I just finished a 30 minute outdoor walk dealing with 18 mph wind conditions but it was clear skies.

Yanks: I know exactly what it is like dealing with windy conditions and trying to run, bike, or walk. We got it done tho'!

Lisa: welcome back from vacation and hope you had a wonderful time.

Bferrell: You are moving forward with those goals. Don't give up!

Goal to train and complete in 2 or 3 events. Yesterday a different run 5.6 miles, then I biked for 80 minutes. At last weeks run, my two buddies could not make it due to different ills. I'm going to assume that this week will be the same, it's a local event, maybe I can ask my daughter to bring the girls.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th.---Laurie it was good to hear from you--Pamela keep up that intensity.

Hi everyone!
Glad to see everyone doing so well. I needed a change/rest, and going easy/shaking things up a bit has been good for me. In general though, I know I need the discipline and support I found on this thread, so I'll be back in May. I look forward to seeing you then.
Meanwhile, I've been wanting an 8' trampoline for years, but they're hard to find, especially at a reasonable price. I finally got one on sale and put it up indoors. Shall we say it "dominates" my little house, but it sure is fun!

YAY Yanks!! Coming in 3rd during your run event #2 is no small feat at all!! Just the fact that you are participating is excellent!! Have a great time preparing for event #3, too!

Mon – Did my scheduled P90X Back & Biceps workout (51 mins of strength) and this week’s session was just as good as last week. There were 24 sets of different exercises and in a few I was able to increase the number of reps, too. I continued to use the 11.25 pound dumbbells for all of the biceps exercises and the resistance tube for the back exercises. I almost “chickened out” doing those Superman moves but “talked” myself into getting them done….LOL!! I guess we all have moments like that during a workout. I am going to increase dumbbells to 12.5 lbs for next week's session.

Monday April 15th.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th---TBD

Goal to attain 700,000 steps----379,206

Goal to walk/run/bike/ 500 miles----246.4

Goal to complete 2or 3 events---You can cross off # 2, yesterday I ran in an event called the "Duffield Dash", I took off my compression shirt right after the warm ups, it was a bit chilly at the start however during the run I was comfortable. There was one big hill and some rolling hills, nothing to write home about. All in all it went well. I'm still about two minutes off my personal best, however any run you can complete should be considered a personal best. Oh by the way I finished 3rd within my age group good enough for a podium call. Well, # 3 will be held on the 21st, So it's off for a run!!! emoticon

Good morning pals!

It is another gorgeous weather day here in Central Texas area....partly cloudy and 66 degrees with calm breezes. Saturdays are usually a “scheduled rest day” from fitness but I've already put in 2 hours of gardening (hoeing, pulling weeds, dumping debris back & forth across the property) this morning. I definitely "logged" this as general gardening for sure!

Yanks: have great success at event #2 on Sunday and can't wait to hear all about it!! I have been told by many that my workouts are intense. I do need to take a step back sometimes and remember the times when I would never have considered doing these...LOL...to get a good perspective.

Linda: It can take time to get to know group members especially if you are like me and just bad with names...heehee. You are moving towards those goals and that is what is important...the effort being made...WTG!!

Sending each of you great day vibes!!

Well it has been 10 days since i posted these...time for accountability
1. Get to know the team ...boohoo, still not getting involved
2. Track foods :
...1000 - 1100 calories....doing very well
...MUST be gluten free, goal of 7-9 freggies...gluten free and good with freggies
...recording carbs and cholesterol to become aware of my usual pattern before I address cutting down on them next month...WOW interesting...wide varience and no pattern yet.
3. Track fitness :
...pedometer goal of average of 4500/day this month...not making it.4000x4d, 5500x2d
...elliptical 20 minutes with no tension on it ...up to 22 minutes daily
...walk 20 minutes [ break it into 2 sets of 10]...up to 22 min daily
...20 min gardening/ yard stuff [again, break into 2 parts] ...just 5 days a week..nope..only 0ne day
...20 min of various chair exercises ...getting in 10-15 daily but not up to 20

So i have a long way to go but overall am pleased...but am choosing to go to an older group of peeps to progress on my path.

Pamela Congratulations on your week, your workout is quite overwhelming I get exhausted just reading your postings.

Goal to walk/run/bike--500 miles----198.28.

Goal to attain 700,000 steps----299,908.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th.

Goal to train & compete in 2 or 3 events- Okay event # 2 is Sunday, today I ran the 5k distance, then I worked on "sprints" for 30 minutes. This was indoors due to inclement weather, a light workout is planned for tomorrow, that will lead me up to Sunday. emoticon

I tried to post here the other day but for some unknown reason I couldn't. WTG to each of you so far this month with those goals.

Here is a recap of the past day or two:

I had a really really bad food day on Wednesday. I still came under calorie needs but didn't make good snack/meal choices and those good choices were available.... geeeesh. It all started going wrong when I decided not to cook dinner...I was just feeling lazy or wanted the "break" because usually I cook EVERY day. Oh well...like someone said to me it is a new day and a new beginning. At least I did my exercise.

It is Thursday and got CLX Lower Body Extreme Zone completed (41 mins). I used the 12.5 dumbbell set again and resistance tube. If you know about Chalene Johnson, she likes to go heavy or go home…LOL! She also LOVES squats and lunges…yikes! Great session.

Friday Friday and my official workout week is done…yay! I worked out every day as planned and writing a plan keeps me accountable along with all my fitness buddies. It was a strength day using P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps (old fashioned weightlifting 101…55 mins). I totally eliminated those ONE-arm push-ups…lol. This session was so full of push-ups…whew! I ain’t shame to admit that most were done from my knees…it still hits the same muscles. Dumbbells sets in use: 5, 6.25, 7.5 8.75, 10 pounds.

April Goals

Walk 40 minutes every day - trying for 8000 steps a day, so adding in all sorts of extra walking besides the 40 minutes.

work on core - need some serious work on the mid section front and back.

Cathy, oh my gosh, it is NEVER too late to post your goals!! I love your self care, good job!

April Goals:

1. To run in 5K April 7th (Done!)
2. To embrace weight loss plan thru my ins company. I am doing it daily, starting to get in a groove, wouldn't call it "embracing" yet, but since it is one of my goals, I haven't shredded the book yet, lol!
3. To run 3x a week to prepare for 5K on Mother's Day. One down, must run tonight and Saturday!

I am finding that posting my goals everyday is keeping my head in the game. It is powerful to keep repeating!

Hope it's not too late to add my April goals:

My goals for April are:
1. Eat nothing after 8PM. Eat a lighter supper (less protein helps me sleep better).

2. Aim for low-end of calorie range.

3. Continue 10 minute a day challenge PLUS shoveling dirt (or mud) to make a new pond.

4. My emotional health is much improved over the past year. I am incorporating a 5 to 10 minute pep talk every day PLUS some quiet time on the back porch enjoying the Spring.

5. Do something to pamper myself. I used to do makeovers and pamper sessions for ladies, and REALLY pampered myself. I need to get back to that.

=====
so far I'm failing miserably at #1 & #2 . . .

Wed – Today is cardio with P90X Kenpo X (kickboxing) scheduled but I switched out and did P90X Cardio X (43 mins) which included kickboxing, yoga, core, plyo (which I modified to protect my lower back from impact), and general cardio moves. Instead of those Dreya Rolls, I did my own version of a Pilates roll…lol. I skipped that superman/banana movement. I could feel the heat escaping from my body! This was a great fitness session which I did my best with and forgot the rest…LOL!

Lisa: I do love strength training a LOT more than cardio...lol. I like seeing how much stronger I get depending on what body part is being worked with weights. Also, strength training reshapes the body moreso for me than cardio and the heavier the weights the "cardio effect" is there.

Tuesday April 9th,

Goal to walk/run/bike/ 500 miles----156.08

Goal to attain 700,000 steps---225,797

Goal to train for event # 2--This was the first morning that I ran without my gloves, maybe spring has finally arrived here on Long Island. Once again I split my training regiment between outdoors & the gym. That seems to be working out, It's a heckuva lot easier to train when you are retired and not have the work pressures that you folks have.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th.

Lisa: you are a "celebrity"...name in the paper!! You ROCK!

For me.... Whew…a strength training morning using P90X Back & Biceps (51 minutes). I upped the size weight from last week’s session from 10 lbs to 11.25 lbs for all bicep exercises requiring dumbbells. I continued to use the resistance tube to work the back. That ole “runny nose syndrome” started much earlier around exercise #6 of 24….LOL! I guess the increase in weights increased the cardio effect. My glamour muscles got worked GOOD!

Thank you all for your support!

I started the run with my son, but he is 30 and really fit, so he was in over 10 minutes before me. I don't think he could run my pace if he tried. I am alot shorter than him, his stride is probably double mine. So, this was the deal, I put my ipod on, turned the music up and tried not to lose my mojo. I was a little slow in the beginning, but about 1/2 way thru I noticed alot of people had switched to walking for awhile and I passed them. I did walk twice, once to change a song on my ipod (I got into a stretch of a few I'm not wild about) and once to get a little breather, probably a total of 100 yards. I was so happy with myself, because I didn't fold like a deck of cards! The weather was an issue. The run was along Lake Erie and we had a very forceful wind going on, hence so many people walking to catch their breath. For some reason it didn't bother me, just slowed me down. My actual time was about 6 minutes worse than my "at home" time, but like I said, the wind was a major factor. Anyhow, this morning my name was in the newspaper as the second place winner. My cell phone was full of text msgs and people were calling me at work...I feel like a celebrity today!!!

Monday April 8th,

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th----TBD.

Goal to walk 700,000 steps --197,395

Goal to attain 500 miles-walking/running/biking---134

Goal to train for 2or3 events---# 2 , I changed up my schedule this morning by running a different route, all in all 6.5 miles. Then it was off to the gym where I biked for 60 minutes and walked/jogged for another 60 minutes.

Lisa did you "run" the whole distance or use the run/walk strategy? Isn't it great when you cross that finish line? Did you have to do the event by yourself or did your son go with you?
Sorry for all of the questions , but as a runner, myself I like to pick the brains of my fellow runners. emoticon

Good Day Monday Team!

I got in a 52 minute brisk-paced outdoor walk on our grassy uneven terrain this morning. This is my scheduled cardio so far for today. Strength training session will be on Tuesday.

Yanks: Those workouts (P90X) selected are some of my favorite and my goal is to do them all the way through instead ending at the mid-point. They are almost an hour long and intense. So far, so good...LOL! BIG congrats on coming in second in that event and how proud your grand daughters must have felt rooting on their grand pop!! The one you carried up to the podium probably had a smile as bright as sunshine!! Keep up your awesome work!!

Suzzzz: keep pushing play along the way and you WILL reach those goals. I sometimes do an indoor walking dvd by Leslie Sansone but enjoy the outdoor power walks when the weather is as pretty as right now in my area.

Moins: enjoy that class on tomorrow and be careful with that shoulder. How did you enjoy the spinning class today?

Lisa: Big congrats to you for placing 2nd for your age group, too!! I tell ya...don't pay any attention to those "youngins" because YOU got this! I went through a weight loss class (phone sessions) a few years ago and gained quite a bit of knowledge that helped me come out of the 200 pounds range. There was a huge amount of material and the course was about 4-6 weeks with weekly sessions. Don't allow this to intimidate you and give it your all.

April goals:
1. Embrace weight loss class. Went to the first one, a little intimidated by all the materials, but am going to give it all I've got.
2. Run in 5K on April 7. Did it...took 2nd place in my age group!!!!
3. Run 3x a week to stay in shape for Mother's Day 5K. Easy peesy, I love running!

I almost didn't run yesterday at the 5K. Almost went with the walkers. You should have seen this group, young and chiseled. I got really nervous and jumpy and almost gave in to my insecurities. So glad I didn't!!!

Have a wonderful day!

My April plan is to weigh 133# by April 30th. A two pound weight loss is nothing for most, but my head is still not into the game and I need to reorganize my priorities, i.e., putting me at the top of the list.

I started today with a spinning class for 60 minutes. Tomorrow I am going to Body Pump for the first time since October 2012. Fortunately I promised my girlfriend I would go, so no backing out. She is recovering from knee surgery and I am recovering from shoulder surgery so we should make a hilarious pair tomorrow. She does make it fun.

"She believed she could so she did."

Pamela ,your schedule keeps on being aggressive, cudos to you.

Goal to train and compete in 2 or 3 events---Okay one down 2 to go, todays event was fairly hilly, the weather was cold at start time with a delay that made it even colder. It was called "Smiles For Stephanie", Two of my grand daughters were there and I carried one of them up to the podium ( I finished 2nd in my age group). What a joy to be able to share this particular moment with them. I am truly blessed, just keep on trying and you will prevail.

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th.

Goal to walk/run/bike 500 miles---116.65

Goal to attain 700,000, steps--172,203

TGIF! Whoa mama...Chalene don't play...lol. Did the CLX Lower Body Extreme (41 minutes) working every muscle below the belly button with the use of a 12.5 dumbbell set and resistance tube. After the first 26 minutes, I started having that runny nose syndrome...LOL!! My official fitness week is done but will probably work in the gardens this weekend because our weather is gorgeous....clear skies and temps to be in the 70s! I will definitely claim gardening on my logs if necessary...lol.

Yanks: LOL at your statement about eating the eggplant parm...I've never tasted but love parmesan cheese on a few things...yummm. WTG on the new goals you've set this month and I don't blame you for training indoors instead of in the rain today.

*Update this evening: I did end up working outdoors in our woodland area for approximately 160 minutes which I did log into MFP (my fitness pal app) and on Sparkpeople.com.

Friday April 5th'

Goal to accumulate 500 miles walking/running/biking/. 79.12.

Goal To accumulate 700,000 steps--135,819.

Goal to train for 2 or 3 events well yesterday I ran for 6.5 miles, the weather was very cold about 28 degrees, however it wasn't windy, so it made the run more tolerable. Today I'm going to run at the gym and work on my speed. (Its raining out I've got to draw the line somewhere)

Goal to weigh in @ 156 on the 30th. If I keep on eating eggplant parm like I did last night I'll never hit this #.

Good luck to all! emoticon

LOL...I hope everyone posts here instead of my April thread. I can add a link in mine sending everyone over here...lol. So great to see some new faces sharing there goals for this month, too.

It is dreary and cool today but we may get some sunshine later afternoon. At least the weather never keeps me from getting exercise since I do 90% of it indoors using DVDs.

P90X Back & Biceps (51 mins) completed this morning using a 10 lb dumbbell for all of the exercises requiring weights and used a resistance tube for all of the pull-ups and chin-ups exercises since I don't own a pull-up bar. I broke a sweat at the 19th exercise (Curl-up/Hammer Downs). There is a total of 24 exercises in this workout. This is what Tony Horton calls "working the Glamour Muscles" and one of my favorite sessions.

Geesh, two threads for one topic? This has happened before.
Why not link Maci's to Pamela's? Maci said she doesn't know how to make links, and people need assistance to straighten a thread duplication out (I'd think). YANKS, I must have been on different threads from you lately. (I see you've written on the Pamela AND Maci threads now.)

As of today, Wednesday, I'm up to 240 minutes of exercise so far since Sunday (when my count begins) so I'm having a productive week with that and other accomplishments. May I keep it up!

Goal: Get that scale to rest on down at 157!
Walk 5 days a week each week [or better].

April Goals

To walk/run/bike---500 miles---43.51 off to a good start.

To accumulate 700,000 steps----both of these goals are rather aggressive but I can do it---so far 77, 310.

To train & complete 2 or 3 events--Okay I signed up for 1 on the 7th. I also bought a new pair of running shoes yesterday, lets see how they workout. Yesterday I jogged outdoors for 71 minutes it was rather cold (32 degrees) not windy. That was with my old shoes , that's when I decided I needed a new pair.

I am going to continue on with a hybrid style of workouts "mixing" up different programs DVDs for this month. It will be P90X, CLX, and Walking. This plan will work my total body with strength training 3 days per week and cardio 2 days per week. I do need to pay a little more attention to the type of food consumption, too. I need to continue to focus on daily water intake as well. I will be logging food, water, and exercise as usual. Below is my fitness guide:

Sun - rest day
Mon - P90X Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Tue - Walking
Wed - P90X Back & Biceps
Thu - P90X Kickboxing
Fri - CLX Extreme Lower Body
Sat - rest day

Sun - it was an official rest day but I did laborious work outdoors in our woodland dragging, lifting and tossing various sized tree debris for at least 45 minutes plus all the walking back and forth. I count this as "circuit training" on my fitness log...lol.


Mon - I got in 55 minutes of P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps this morning and expecting my shoulders to be a little sore. I worked with a 7.5 dumbbell throughout all of the moves requiring weights. This session is called "old fashioned weight lifting 101" by Tony Horton...whoa baby! There are a few push-up moves and some done on my toes but MOST from my knees and the wall which works just fine, too. So sweet when I get to the end of this session...lol.

Tue - Cardio day involved outdoor brisk paced walking for 40 minutes this morning.
