SONGS, (or anybody who is interested)
I know that before I had my trainer I didn't know what to do on which machine as far as weight training... it was a big world that I knew nothing about. Now when I do my training, they record everything I do. What machine, how much weight, how many reps... I would be happy to type some of these up for you if you are interested. I know it is going to be a VERY helpful tool once I am done seeing the trainers.

I am starting to increase my weights at the gym. I want to come up with a 2/3 different routines. It is good to keep your muscles confused. I will have to do stuff at home but that's ok.

Today is open house and they are having a drawing for a top of the line elliptical. If I win it I have no idea where we will put it. LOL

Well... The first time I one of my trainiers I thought "hm... he is motivation enough to get in here everyday!" Yesterday I told him I hate him!! He killed me... We did lower body and abs, I wasn't sure if I was going to be sick or just collapse after the 30 minutes we spent working out! I am sooo sore! But it feels great! I foloowed training with 30 minutes on the treadmill at 3.5MPH and a 10% incline.

I am down another .4 lbs this morning... not a big number, but when I do daily weigh-ins it is nice to see any weight loss!!

COMMIT- 13 pounds would be huge! I'm sure you can do it!

Great job everybody!!

Sounds like a great plan Jessica! I'm on my way to the gym. I love having it so close. It's like it's in my backyard. I'm upgrading my membership to include classes next month. One class is called body pump. Supposed to burn like 600 calories a class. Today is open house for the public. I hope members can get a t-shirt!

Hello ladies!!! Sorry I have been MIA! Things have gotten pretty busy around here... I have been doing pretty well with the gym and eatting. I have had a few days that haven't gone so well, but overall it has been great! I am enjoying my personal training. It's doing what I want it to... getting me to the gym whether I want to or not. The scale isn't moving a whole lot, but I'm hoping that is because I am gaining muscle while losing fat.

I have slacked this week with workouts... and went slightly over calories yesterday, so I am going to do an intense workout tonight. 30 minutes of cardio both before and after my training session... Torch about 650 calories... not including the weight training!

Hope everybody else is doing well... I will come back and catch up with everyone when I have a few more minutes.

WE CAN DO THIS!!! emoticon

Anne, Feel better!

Ladies, are you journaling your emotional eating? Are you controlling your emotional eating or is it controlling you? How are you doing on this challenge?

Also, I will be posting February's challenge this Saturday!

I'm sorry to have been out of touch, but I was down for the count with a migraine, and I just couldn't bear looking at a computer screen. Haven't been able to exercise either. But I am feeling better today, and I'll get back into full swing tomorrow.

Hey Ladies!!! Just got in from the gym... Sorry I have been MIA. Just got busy over the weekend and didn't do so well with my food choices but still managed to lose 2lbs today when I got on the scale..... I was shocked. I was doing so good and the scale would NOT move and then I cheat and it moves... Imagine that!

Way to go songs.... Yeah when I work out with my boys, I outlast them. Its funny. They can't do my workouts and then going with them I get frustrated bc I am not focused and I don't end up doing everything. LOL You should try a spin class. Its actually fun and on your own resistance so you control that and you can leave whenever you want. I love it now.

I started "Making the Cut" by Jillian Michaels yesterday and I love it!!!! I have done it before and really saw a difference in my body. So I am excited to do it all again. Its exhausting but so worth it.

Happy Wednesday!!!!!! Stay focused and fabulous!!!

I just got back from the gym!!! It was good! I have to get used to their machines. I think we were there for over an hour. I did some cardio first then machines. I was gonna do a little more cardio but my son wanted to leave. It's gonna be good! I thought I took it a little easy which is what I wanted to do so I'm not sore. I want to go back on Wed. There was a stretching class going on. My membership is only for cardio and weights. I may switch to the membership that includes classes.
I'm psyched and having a VERY HEALTHY lunch!

Hi ladies, checking in for the week. I did not do so well with the cardio and strength training, we were out every evening last week... a few restaurant dinners in there too, but I did make healthy choices that I would have in the past, but yet of course they are nothing like the healthy home meals I would make. I do enjoy the attending our personal interest groups and volunteering, but man... does it take a lot of time. Who knew? hahaha

I was hoping to get in some walking during lunch during the week to make up for it, but with -30 degrees Celsius and wind chill even colder... i chickened out. This week is supposed to be more bearable so we will see.

I am with Stevie... we can do it.... we are worth it.

Thanks so much velvet and songs :) I am upto at least 30 minutes a day of cardio. I left fried foods behind when I joined sparkpeople, I have been journaling pretty often. Strength training I do five or six days a week, thanks to the NEW YOU BOOTCAMP videos.

Thank you all so much! You all are amazing!

Ladies, thanks for your words of encouragment. I'm just trying to get back to normal! Thank God!

Anyhoo! Here's this week's challenge addition:

Cardio: Add 5 more minutes to your workout time for 4-5 days a week.

Strength training: Start with 8 moves that work the major muscle groups: triceps, legs, biceps, back, chest, and abs. Do one to two sets of eight to ten reps for each, three times a week.

Journal your emotional eating.

Food Switches: Cut out trans fat. Switch from fried foods to roasted, sauteed, or baked.

Ladies, here are the additions to this month's challenge. Remember we are here for one another and we can do it! You are worth it!

Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

I know as time goes on my motivation will slow and I will feel like this is just a boring routine and want to give up. I see that happen so often, but, SPARKPEOPLE you people will always help keep me focused. That's the beauty to sparkpeople, it not only provides us with nutrition and physical help, but, with emotional help....inspirational REAL people, inspirational quotes, FREE fitness videos, free articles. Sparkpeople is EVERYTHING I could ever ask for and I am so lucky I found it.

Hey everyone! Songs thanks so much for checking in on me today :) It's good to know that I was noticed. I have lost a total of six pounds from January 1 to January 11, I weigh in again tomarrow. This week I have done all of the bootcamp workouts and additional challenges, 30 minutes or more of cardio, and I have been living my new healthier lifestyle successfully for 16 days now :)

I am so THANKFUL for everyone who helped me through that first little breakdown I had. I would not have made it without you all who helped me. Thank you so much!

I did think about community college but I don't have a car all to myself. I share a car with my son who is in a trade school. He is in a car pool but I only have the car 2/3 days per week.

Sportbunnie, that's great about getting certified. I've been thinking about doing a course online to be personal trainer.

I have not been to the gym yet but will be on the way in a lil bit. I wanted to get up early and do spin class again, I really loved it, but had some personal stuff to deal with. So thats sorted and I am back on focusing on the plan. :)

I also just signed up to get my Personal Training Certification!!!! I start on Wed and I am very excited! Its a 6 week program that will give me a certificate of fitness to train others!! Looking foward to making fitness my life! And helping others reach their goals as well!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Sounds like everybody is doing great!!

Patty--Sometimes we all need a slap in the face! Let it drive you... let it help you succeed! You can do it!!

Things have been going well over here!! I have a training session today (not an offical one until next Monday because of my payment schedule). But I am going to do legs today. By the end of last week I was feeling pretty frustrated that I had not lost any weight, but yesterday I weighed myself and was down 1.2 pounds and this morning I'm down another .6! I know weight fluxuates, so these are small numbers... but it makes me feel better! I can't wait until I start to see a difference in my clothes!

Have a great day everyone!

patty,
Great attitude, you are amazing .That slap should be given to all of us (I think all the other WOAM ladies agree with me).Sometimes,in the middle of our road we forget about our purpose,and it's good to find someone or ourselves getting back on track. emoticon


Anyway I -think- I did great in the weekend.

Doaa

emoticon Stevie!!! Keep up the good work!

I received the slap in the head I've needed this morning when I measured! Even though clothes are looser and fitting better there has been no loss except 2 inches in my bust (could be the new bra). I've been sitting on the fence since before Thanksgiving!!! That's 2 month! It will be almost Spring in 2 more months. I will not look like this another spring/summer! No more excuses about "when the gym opens, I'll do better!" Baloney! Today is the day I do better!!!!!!!!! OK, I'm done slapping myself. I should know better!!! I have ALL THE TOOLS and support! There is no excuse for this playing around to go on another day!

Thanks Songs!!! How was your getting back in workout today?

Hello Everyone!! I made it thru and loved it! I actually am better conditioned than I even thought. :) It was a lot of fun and challenging! Not something I'd do everyday but once a week would be great!

I got on the scale as well today and it didn't move! still 134. I am frustrated. I have done so well this last week and nothing. Seems like when I am not watching I do better. LOL I don't get it. but I am not going to allow it to get to me and me go off of it. I am hoping its all the water I have been drinking and the last couple of days of TOM. Today I hit 100oz of water. Holy crap!

Hope all is going well with everyone. Even if you are as frustrated as I am. I should have had a big number this week. Dammit!

Cheryl Baker!!!! :)

Thanks for the words of encouragement! I'm doing some exercising today. I doo some residue from the mild flu after Christmas so I'm keeping it in short increments.

Good Morning Ladies.... I am up early on the west coast getting my nerve up for my first ever spin class!!! LOL I hope I make it thru. As much as I'd like to get back in the bed... I made that commitment to myself and I want to conquer this fear.

Wish me luck and Happy Saturday to you all!!!!! :)

Patty... its just a hurdle and learning experience in changing your lifestyle. Just get back up and start again. You can do this!!!!

Dont beat yourself up, Patty - we all slip up from time to time. The key is to recognize it and not give in to it, but instead to dust yourself off and get back on track.

"Love God in front of others, and love others in front of God."

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, 'Why me?' becomes a theme song."

I know what you mean with all these challenges/teams and your own goals and plans it is hard to keep track. Glad you are doing well! I did a short workout for lower body this morning. I need to keep short bits of exercise part of my day until the gym opens - 10 more days!!!

I seriously need to print out these encouraging and inspiring messages to read in the afternoon/evening. I completely forgot about my plan and got into what I made my family for dinner. I am developing some bad habits that I need to stop RIGHT NOW, TODAY!!!

Hello all!! Thank you for your comments!

I found out yesterday that I cannot accutally start my training until the 19th because of my payment program (1/2 down when I started, 1/2 2 weeks later)... But I am doing great at stopping at the gym everyday! I joined LA Fitness and I pass 2 of them on the way home, and there is one just past my house... I have no excuse not to workout! I can tell I have much more energy now and I am also a lot happier. It feels great!

Everybody keep up the great work!

I remember those days. I remember asking someone will I ever be able to fall asleep on the couch ever again? Now, I think it is an every night occurence. You won't remember the hard times, just the good, sweet times. Enjoy! I wish I could make my kids small again. Not that they are difficult but I just want to hold them in my arms and they will want to stay there for a few minutes. Mine are all still home but I miss holding them real tight!
