I'm currently enjoying my one and only soda for the day. Got my polka dot tumbler ready for the rest of the day to drink some water.

Fiance wants to go to Qdoba tonight. Sigh.

ETA: Found a good arm workout on youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihok8WJnVd4

All I have for freeweights at home are 10lb weights, which I can curl and do kickbacks with but can't do the deltoid work with. So for those, I used two full 3 liter cranberry juice bottles, which the internet tells me is around 6lbs.

I want to do an Olympic bar weighted squat. That's my new goal. Just getting into the squat rack in the evenings is a pain, so it's likely to be done at the weekends. 10 weekends? I should be ok with that time frame. In case you don't know, I have a crap back.

If I manage to get through a workout without ending up covered in a sweaty mans fake tan, that'll also be a goal achieved.

You may have had dinner already, but I went to Qdoba for lunch last week and had the child-size naked burrito. Basically a burrito without the tortilla. I order it with chicken, veggies, beans, cheese, and guac. When I've ordered it in the past, I've ordered it without the rice, but this time I was bad--she put rice in the bowl before I could tell her not to, and I didn't have the willpower to tell her to take it out.

The way portion sizes are now, the child size is perfectly fine for an adult.

I want to join this challenge! But I need to think about what my goals will be. I fell off the fitness/diet wagon so hard during the holidays, and I've gotten back on with the fitness in the past week or two. The diet part is still a disaster. I think my goals will be: 1) lose 10-15 pounds; 2) work on toning the abs, which I guess is more of a diet thing than an exercise thing; 3) cut down on sugar/try to satisfy my sweet tooth with fruit.

Yesterday I ran 5 miles and swam 4,000 yards.
Today I swam 4,200 yards.
Tomorrow I am going to a 45-minute spin class, 30 minutes of core, then a 30-minute run. Hopefully also get in ~2,500 yards in the pool as well.
Gotta get some strength training in sometime soon too.

I have been eating my face off.

I HAVE to get rid of this early-stages-of-pregnancy-esque belly. I actually don't even mind how the rest of my body looks but this midsection pudge has GOT to go.

I forced myself to run/walk yesterday.

Can anybody recommend a good running shoe for over-pronation? It kills my ankles, instep, and lower legs when I attempt to run. My feet are extremely flat and hardly any arch. I hate sneakers so I don't know about brands and stuff.

I wear Brooks Adrenaline. They have worked for me for many years for flat feet/overpronation. Running shoes are generally a personal preference thing though.

I have brooks that is geared toward flat feet also. I don't have flat feet I have a very prominent/high arch yet I run like a flat footed person I guess because that's all the shoe people could recommend when I did my running tests at the shoe store.

I still don't understand why all my things lead up to flat feet yet I do not have flat feet. My body is a mystery even to me. Maybe my feet are going to randomly cave in one day and be flat. Its the only thing I can come up with.

I just want to be comfortable enough with my thighs that I don't stay clothed until the moment I go into the water and then immediately grab a towel

Maybe it should go down to 1 in 10 weeks. That's much more doable.

I went to an hour-long spin class yesterday and today. I'll go to pilates tomorrow and I think I'll lift using a machine before pilates. I'm going to stick with machines until I get stronger and have good enough form for free weights.

I resisted chips and soda but I did indulge in a (tall) starbucks drink. one more goal I'm going to set for myself is no more Starbucks for the duration of this challenge!

I'm glad everyone is doing well.

oh, and if I can recommend something:

Blogilates is my absolute favorite fitness youtube channel. The videos are of pilates, with some cardio too, and it's a lot harder than it seems! These workouts are my go-to when I can't get to the gym.

My 3lbs is only a 10 week goal though. I've lost 10lbs since new year. And still have 10lbs to go to get to my pre-surgery weight.

Slow and steady weightloss wins the race.

i've done that about 4 times and every time i've gained back even MORE weight.

it's even more discouraging and i'm sick of "taking it slow". since the wait list for gastric bypass in this city is now upwards of 2 years, i'm going to ask my health plan at work to cover me for Jump 6 or lap-band.

last week, i was trying to find something to wear for my presentation and that process ended with me crying in a heap in my dressing room...

Instead of getting the cookie I wanted just now, I got an odwalla protein bar. Not great, but still... go, me!

I also signed up for exercise classes tomorrow and Monday. Since they're prepaid, I won't back out of them. I think I'll also have my first weigh-in tomorrow. I have no idea how much I weigh right now and I'm a little fearful. I know I backslid, but it's hard to know exactly how much because my clothes still technically fit (even if they don't look right).
