My gym brain fell off the rails yesterday as spent the entire evening after work at the yard with the vet and my horse :( Tonight husband is going to be working late so its a no go again but am going to try for 20 on the rower if I can.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Maple do you have an iphone by chance? Nike Training Club app has a lot of great workouts...I'm not a big fan of some of them (too many squats, bad for your knees!) but I love their 15-min ab workouts...and I've worn my heart rate monitor before and found I burn 95 cals doing one of those...AND get to work my abs!

Well guys, the 550 under turned into 160 under once I got ahod of some snacks! But still under the 1,500 goal for the day so I'm excited and feel really good about getting back on track this week! And hubby made pizza last night and I resisted! My willpower is coming back YAAAAAAY!!!

By the way everyone, thanks for listening to all my daily posts...just having to report them in here is holding me accountable to them which is helping a TON!

My "start" stats:
Age: 23
Height: 5'10 or 5'11
Weight: 230-240 lbs
Short term Goal: 225lbs (the lowest I got to when working out 3 times a week and counting calories)
Overall Goal Weight: 180-190lbs

The highest I ever got to was 260lbs, I got down to 225lbs in about 1 year. Then I got some weird armpit infection thing and stopped working out then excuses later back up to 240lbs and have been maintaining that for about half a year or so. I got back down to 230lbs then had a rough month(many birthdays/events and I suck at controlling my eating apparently). I want to get back down to 225lbs then eventually get down to 190lbs or so.

I don't really know how much I weigh this week. I killed myself at horseback riding Friday (lots of no stirrup work), the next day my thighs, calves, back, abs, etc were super sore! And I ended up with a stomach bug :( I am finally recovering almost over it completely.

My game plan is tracking my calories and being conscious about what I eat, because I find this has always helped me. I walk to school every day which is 10 minutes and on top of that I am going to start up my exercise program from my "New Rules of Lifting for Women" book. And do some jogging/hiking/biking/etc something fun on the weekends. The exercise will be slow for now, I am in the last month and a half of my final year of college. So I will need to nail my eating.

Hope its okay I join!

Thanks, Hoofprints! I'm excited to get started. I'm going to jump on the scale today after I'm finished my workout to see exactly what I'm at. I don't have a scale at home so I have to remember to weigh in at the gym. Goals for this week are to make it to the gym 3X and not give in to all my cravings haha. It looks like I'm looking at about 1600-1700 calories/day for approximately 1 1/2lbs a week weight loss, which seems to be a pretty safe rate to lose at. Not sure I'll hit that but I'm sure going to try! I need to remember to eat smaller portions more often, eat better, and go to the gym!

Good luck, CowboysDream!! We can all reach our goals if we set our minds to it I think.

Thanks! Oh and be careful with weighing yourself at the gym. If you plan on weighing yourself more than once a week, it would be better to just go out and get a scale. The time (and only time) I will weigh myself is in the morning, naked, after going to the bathroom. Because then I feel my body roughly is in the same state it was the last time I weighed myself. However if you are only going to weigh yourself less than once a week, the gym scale should give you a rough guideline and give you an idea how you are doing.

I'm not overly fond of weighing at the gym because of the different times of day etc. I also don't trust the digital scales . Luckly the one at the gym I go to is the weighted scale, so I think it's fairly accurate. But you're right, I would trust it more if I weighed myself in the morning at the same time as previously for consistancy sake. I don't usually weight myself more than once every week or two but perhaps I'll pop out and grab a scale today! I think it would help me stay on track too.

Don't forget taking measurements, they're far more accurate than scales anyway! (And matter more since they determine whether you will fit in your jeans) ;)

Ah, fair point. I should start keeping a measurement log as well. So far, today has been good. I went to my personal trainer with my mom today and we did an hour of mixing cardio and weights. It was tough today but I was happy! I'm probably a little bit high on my calories for the day and I can feel the munchies setting in haha...I'm dying to eat more but I have nothing with me now that my snacks are gone. Co-worker brought in food of the devil aka timbits, resisting those too! lol. The scale reads me at 203lbs, yay! Getting close to goal #1 : Under 200.
