What gym did you join?!?!?! 6 bucks that's amazing!!!! I have lost 20lbs in the last 2 months and am hoping for another 20 by the end of the year. This week I have been sacking real bad on my night walks bc we have had rain and my walk is a mile dirt road so the rain kinda ruined it!

I LOVE this gym. You really have no excuses not to go. They are open every day so whether you work early, have school or have to work around some other schedule you can find some time to go to the gym and can always drop your kid off at the child care center if you can't find someone to watch them for you.

I live off of a longggg dirt road too and that sucks for me as well when it rains or the weathers crazy. I just went ahead and purchased a variety of workout dvds (yoga, bellydance,etc) to use on those days that I can't make it to the gym or get outside.

Congrats on the weight loss!

I would like to try and tone up my body.. not lose weight though. My legs are pretty good, it's more upper body that I want to work on. I might try to get back into doing P90X

So I went to the gym today and I started adding my weight training to my routine today. By the time I was done and hit up the treadmill my legs were a bit wobbly so I had to slow down the speed for the first 5 mins but then I was good. On the positive side after the weight training the elliptical didn't seem so intense today. Then again nothing seems so intense after a day of spinning. Lol.

Another day of cardio today and funny thing was I didn't feel all those crunches I did yesterday until late this evening. Go figure.

Sometimes I get really motivated and stay on the right track for about three weeks then I'll fall off with maybe some chips or something then I'll think to myself "dang I fell off the wagon I can't start over now" =^\ I get so discouraged at times I'm thinking of picking walking/jogging back up in the morning but then I don't want to go by myself so I just don't do anything, but I'm thinking of getting my gym memberships back & getting a personal trainer and MAKING my self get up and at leafy run/walk for a half an hour everyday. My biggest thing is nutrition I rarely eat I really really need to work on that but I downloaded this app called my fitness pal & it helps a WHOLE LOT I really amor this app you ladies bring me so much motivation and strength each & everyday with life,hair and so much more God bless you all!!!! *happy tear* =,) lol adios!
I have some goals in mind for the end of this year and beyond. I know next year I want to run a 5K. I despised running when I was much younger but have finally started to embrace it.

I also want to commit myself to exercising at least every other day and hopefully everyday, to gain strength and muscle tone. I have a bike and have been biking close to 3 miles every few days for the last two weeks, which is great. I just have a tendency to start something and then fall off the wagon.

I really have no excuses, I live the near the beach and I can go outside my door and start exercising. Maybe by putting forth my goal here, I will have more accountability.

My goal for 2012 will either be to run a 27-minute 5K marathon OR to do a half marathon (no time limits on that one--just surviving will suffice). I will probably settle for the lesser of the two evils, but I haven't figured out which option that would be

So I got my butt up and went spinning early today! It felt good and my instructor told me that a couple in my last class thought I was an 'experienced spinner' so at least I have some people fooled Lol. No seriously I do adore the class and am thinking about picking up another day a week but we'll see. Right now lets see if I can get through this weight training and cardio I have planned for tomorrow!

So I did weights & cardio yesterday and another spinning class early today. I have to say that I really liked this instructor as well so I will probably switch up my routine a little now and do 2 days a week of spinning, 2 days a week of weights/ cardio and one day of just cardio now with 2 days of rest.

I was a little thrown off when I stepped on the scale today bc I picked up 2 lbs but my measurements have consistently gone down all over and my clothes fit looser. I know muscle weighs more than fat and I have added consistent weight training to my exercise reggie so I'm hoping that accounts for the weight gain?

Anyway is everyone else still motivated and ready for 2012?!

Did a 4-mile jog on Friday. Sunday was just a 1 mile walk. I was pooped Hope to amp things up a little more during the week.

I have to say that I really liked this instructor as well so I will probably switch up my routine a little now and do 2 days a week of spinning, 2 days a week of weights/ cardio and one day of just cardio now with 2 days of rest.

I think my gym really helps bc I have such a variety of things I can do and worse case scenario if I don't have anyone to watch my child I can always bring him w/me to the child care center and still get in a good workout so no excuses there either you know?!

You have to be really motivated as well to be running for 4miles! Lol. I'm trying to get back into running too however after my surgery I'm not quite there yet.

So today was another day of spinning and we focused on endurance which isn't as easy as it sounds but was a good workout none the less. I was talking to the trainer as well ab the weight training/weight gain and she was saying the same thing ab the muscle/just general weight fluctuations we have as women. So I'm gonna step away from the scale so much and just stay focused on my goals.

We really don't have that much time left in 2011 ladies!

I'm in I'm in!
In the summer I feel like a little pudge, winter is when I always get my act together (so opposite of most!)
I'm 5'2, about 122-125lbs, (curvy) and when I'm at my best (usually around March) I'm at about 115 but nice n toned.

Diet is key key key. About 80% of it is what you out in your body.
I mostly do yoga and the TRX workout which is a kiiiiller. I'm so excited to see that on Dec 26th they are opening a TRX facility with trainers, classes and the whole bit included. Can't wait!
"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
Welcome Narnia! Today was another day of spinning and they must be on an endurance kick because we did it again today! Lol. Can't complain bc at least my hearts getting in good shape!

I love this thread! Can I join?

I've had about 12 extra pounds for the last year or so, then I started college and gained another 5. When you are 5' tall, 5 extra pounds is a lot! I want to get back to 105 pounds, I feel like I look great at that weight. I really put my mind to it last week and lost 3 pounds! I was going so well, but then the weekend came around . Brunch in the dining hall, ice cream, yikes! Then I got a migraine Monday and wasn't able to workout yesterday or today. But tomorrow I'm starting up again, I want to reach my "goal" by 2012. I'd rather start the year on a high note instead of making plans to change it !
I need to be accountable for my eating. I log my workouts on my own thread, but I need to lose 10 pounds to be happy. I've put on weight since I started my anxiety medication,, but I feel so much better I am not going off. My sister even noticed that I was eating more when she was out for a visit at the end of October. I think if I actually write down what I eat I will be more careful about it.

11/16/2011:
Breakfast - Chocolate Shakeolgy with a banana
Snack #1 - 3 squares of Lindt 70% dark chocalate, handful of almonds, 1 cup green tea.
Snack #2 - 1 square dark chocolate. 4 raspberries, handful of blueberries, 1 small apple
Lunch - 1/2 turkey sw but didn't eat the bread just the turkey, mayo, mustard and lettuce, and about a cup of cut up veggies with a little ranch on the side.
Dinner - hormone free cheeseburer, no bun, with onion, tomato and ketchup. Split an order of sweet potato fires.
