Support each other and lose 10 pounds!
Let's just say my gym time has been non-existent this summer. My first year done with school with a full-time job and two horses doesn't leave much time for the gym! If I don't have something else going on, I'm rushing off to the horses (where I board) immediately after work, and usually there until it's dark outside.
Well now that daylight savings time is approaching, I will have zero riding on weekdays. Which means I no longer have another activity to excuse me from not going to the gym!
For me, when I don't go the gym, I don't eat as healthy. I definately can lose a few pounds and tone back up. And those "few pounds" always seem the hardest and least motivating to lose, because they are so difficult.
So I have made a decision to start back up on November 1st. (Always easy to give yourself a start date.)
Anybody else want to join me, and support each other?
We can simply check in each day or every other day. I know I'm always more motivated when I've got to "report" to someone! My ultimate goal is to have a certain pair of jeans fit loose, like they used to! Jeans don't lie, even though the scale can sometimes (regarding fat vs muscle).
My "start" stats:
Height: Just under 5'6"
Weight: 136 lbs
Goal Weight: 126 lbs
Forgot to mention if you have different goals than losing 10 pounds, totally fine too! Everyone is going to have individual goals including gaining and losing weight. Everyone is welcome. :-)
I'm going to join you and support you on this feat.
Before I had my girls...I did cross training. One day of cardio...next day..weights. I lost quite abit of body fat..but gained weight in muscle...which I didn't care because my clothes were becoming quite loose on me anyways. I was with the ambulance at time and being physically good shape paid off. I didn't get injured as much as others who were not in good shape.
Triplet girls came and any form of excercise went out the window. Too tired to do anything. Now my kids are in school (they're 9 yrs old) I want to and I need to get back in shape (I"m back in the ambulance now)....but I just lack the motivation and the emotional support to do it. I wished my husband was into excercising so I can get some "cheerleader' support but that isn't so.
So...I'm looking forward to being a 'cheerleader' for you and any others who want to accomplish any wieght goals.
Right now...I want to lose whatever to have my jeans feel loose and go down another notch on my belt. No big goals...but goals enough where my tummy looks flat again.
My start 'stats'...
Weight: don't know...never weighed myself after the kids were born (hated the scale)
Goal weight: I want my jeans to feel really ...really loose.
PS....I can't really start until Nov 1 anyways....I have written and practical tests to do within the next two weeks.
Yea, part of my motivation to get back on track NOW is because when my husband and I decide it is time for kids down the road, I know my time will really be minimal then! Have to take the time to take care of myself now.
You do want to be in good shape when you do have kids. Your body will bounce back alot faster when you're in shape after your children are born.
Mine did somewhat..... I was big as a house when I was carrying my three.
After the girls were born....people were quite surpised that I carried triplets.
So yeah...it pays off to be in good shape either way.
Sign me up!
It will be nice to have other people going through the same thing as me. I am not too worried about the weight loss, I just need to get into shape (I am starting to feel older then what I am). When I tell people how much I weigh no one really believes me ( I guess I carry it well?!?!). I too will be starting on Nov 1st, that gives me time to sign up for my work gym and my apartment gym and pool.
My "start" stats:
Age: 26 (On Monday)
Weight: 180ish lbs
Goal Weight: What Ever Makes Me Feel Good About Myself.
I'm in! Although mines is more for fitness training as i've applied for the army and need to build that stamina up! so i'll probably share what i've been doing too. Focusing mainly on running at the moment.
Ages : 20
Height: 4'11 and a decimal!
Goal: Beat my personal bests.
Last time i went for a run it was 2 weeks ago (oops!) i done 3.45km in 22:34 mins.
Tomorrows goal will be 4km my estimated time is 27:07 mins.
And happy birthday on Mondy!
I too am not necessarily worried about the number on the scale, but I deinately want to make my jeans fit better and tone up the tummy area!
My "start" stats:
Goal Weight: Around 130 ish
I had lost 40 lbs before on weightwatchers, but then I gained it all back and started eating not healthy again.
It's funny that I saw this today, because I had decided to start loosing weight again this morning!! haha
Awesome on the running!! I myself really enjoy running but I get left knee pain. :-( Usually once it starts hurting, I have to quit running for a couple weeks, or else it will just immediately hurt again. I've never had it checked out so I have no idea what it is, and there seems to be no rhyme or reasons to it. Sometimes I'm great for a few months, and sometimes I can't run for months.
At least I'm still able to do other things (elliptical, stair stepper, etc) even if I can't run. Biking does the same thing to my knee, so I don't do a whole lot of biking.
