I want to lose the last 6 pounds to get to my goal weight by the end of the year.

I will:
1) continue monitoring food daily
2) continue drinking 10+ glasses of water a day
3) cutting down on alcohol consumption (which seems to be too easy lately at social gatherings and holiday get togethers)
4) finish Brazil Butt Lift program and then start a 3rd round of Insanity mixed with BBL
5) burn at least 2500 calories/week
6) only cheat with treats I love and not with things that are somewhat good
7) my newest improvement is no sugar and no dairy which I've been doing pretty well on

Happy Holidays all!

I pledge to:
+run at least one 4-5 mile run per week, with 2 other shorter runs
+get the exercise room cleaned out so DH & I can work out at home when the gym gets crowded in January
+get in some morning runs on my extra days off
+keep pushing to break the 30min 5k barrier (I was SO close before I slacked off again!!)
+get in my morning exercise at home at least 4 days per week


today I had asked my boss if I could leave a little early to go to a 4:30 class at the Y. He said it wouldn't be a problem. Our 3:30 appt showed up early, so it was looking good for me to be able to leave. The appt ran longer than we expected, but my boss kept telling me to leave. I stayed because we are a 2 person office; if I left, he'd be dealing with incoming calls while a client was in his office.

I decided I'd run and take the late (6:30) spin class instead. I left the office at 5, went to the Y and did some warm up moves. Walked to the corner and started my planned 2 mile run. I was feeling pretty good when I got to the turn to head back, so decided to go straight and add another mile. As I was running toward the next planned turn, I remembered that if I went straight, I'd hit a killer (but very short) hill. I decided to go for it. I got back to the turn to go to the Y and felt I could add another mile, so I went straight instead of turning.

total run - 4.1 miles + a 1 mile walk to cool down
5.1 miles in 65 minutes! emoticon I'll take spin tomorrow night.

OK everyone, how was our first day???

Grrrrrrr, is my first day, I got so hungry for the donuts someone brought it, I almost killed our engineering guys when they wouldn't finish off the box when I went into the kitchen to get my second cup of coffee. They told me I should have one.....I took a donut, and they smirked; and then i threw it in the trash. They thought it was hilarious.

I got over my snit pretty fast and when I decided to eat the two little squares of my Dove Dark Chocolate Bar (1.44 oz. size). I wanted a donut, but was satisfied with the chocolate, so all is now well in my kingdom.

How about yours???

Goals:

1. To track my food on all days except the actual holiday itself
2. To increase my exercise (which should be a bit easier since I am off from work quite a bit over the next couple of months).
3. To drink even more water on the days when there is a ton of food so that I'm less hungry
4. Only eat on the holidays until I am satisfied, not until I'm so stuffed that I can barely move
5. To keep weighing & measuring

My goals are:

1) Continue to lose weight during the holidays even though some things may be tempting.
2) Make certain I record everything I eat, even if I goof up!
3) Make certain I walk every day even if it hurts to begin with.
4) Make certain I do my exercises every day for at least 10 - 15 minutes.
5) Try to progress from the 2# and 3# weights up to the 5# weights.
6) Write something everyday on this forum to help or encourage others; if I goof up and backslide in my eating, I pledge to write it down and do better the next day!
7) Most of all, I hope to encourage others to keep on keeping on with their goals!!!

I pledge to track daily, allow myself treats once a week, keep up my workouts at least 6 days a week- even if it's only 10-20 minutes. I would like to lose 10 pounds by Christmas, but I guess that will depend on if I can break my plateau...

This is for me...

I pledge to track every day during the holidays even on the days I allow myself the once yearly seasonal treats. I pledge to keep up my work outs and commit to 10 minutes a day no matter what. I pledge to continue drinking 8 glasses of water per day. :)

I would like to weigh 210 by Christmas.

The holidays aren't a huge challenge for me...but living in a household with someone who loves to bake pies is! 'Tis the season!

I already do the five things that Lisa has listed...though my cheat/treat days are more like once a month instead of once a week.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba
