Good morning,
I've had to readjust my goal. I took the realage test and discovered I am exercising to much. Who knew!? It explained that the exercising I am doing is hard on my joints thus aging me. I was happy with the results overall. At 58, it has me at 56.6. That is a great improvement because about a year ago when I first took it, I was 67. I'm going to still exercise sixty minutes a day but instead of every day, I will exercise Mon - Friday and take the weekend off. I will still weight lift Mon, Wed and Thursday. This is a learning experience for me but I'm determined not to give up and not get frustrated when I have to make changes. It's all part of reaching my goals.

My goal for August is to exercise at least 60 minutes a day every day. I actually got started on Sunday the 9th so missed out the first part of August. On track now so hope to be able to maintain.

My goal for the month of August is to lose another 5 to 10 pounds. Lately I've hit a steady spot of fighting with these 5 to 6 pounds that come and go. I'm losing more inches than I am pounds. I'm starting to get discouraged. But I stay strong. Smooches

My goal for this month is to lost 10 pounds by August 31st. If I don't make the full 10 pounds I will be proud of myself anyway. It is just a personal goal that I have set for myself.

Hi guys,
Here are my suggestions:
1. Accompany at least one meal a day with water instead of a drink/juice.
2. Replace at least one service of juice a day with a fruit; that way you get the added benefit of the fiber from the fruit.

Veni, vendi, vici.

I made a challenge to workout everyday, which I have brought down to 6 times a week. I like the one about picking a buddy. That could be really effective seeing that alot of people want a buddy but there is no matchup.

im down for the buddy challenge.
anyone want to be my buddy hit me up at 847.899.3564 or missgraham@gmail.com


Success and Abundance! I am working to create a new me!

I thought of a couple ideas but I know we only need 1 so you guys can decide which is best.

Nutrition challenge: No fried foods or 1 serving of red meat a wk.

Fitness challenge: Add 5 more mins to workout routine..if you workout 30min try 35mins.

Motivation challenge: Read daily quotes or reward yourself weekly for meeting weekly goals! emoticon

How about challenging ourselves to exercise a minimum of 30 minutes 4 times per week....

Hrmm, I think I'd like a steps challenge--that's what moved me last August around this time...steps & inches lost, I like it!

Oh, and maybe add a water intake piece to it too? *shrug*
