oh, I would LOVE to, but my September goal failed so miserably, I’m just still feeling a little depressed…

ok, maybe I’ll make it a bit more realistic-

drink tons of water (oh wait, I do that already…)

excercise THREE times a week.

I’m up for a challenge!  So here’s my plan:

>Continue with Supreme 90 6 days/wk

>Re: nutrition, I am making the transition to the primal lifestyle beginning today.  No grains or sugar, lots of protein, veggies and good fats.

>drink more water

I definitely need a challenge!  I’m going on a cruise Dec. 17th and would love to lose about 7-10 lbs before that!  I weighed in at 147.5 this morning.

Goals this month:

  • Finish C25K.  I’m starting week 7 tomorrow, and it’s 9 weeks total.
  • Do a video at home at least 5 times a week.  I have a bunch of different Jillian Michaels videos, the Brazil Butt Lift, and a few randoms to choose from.
  • Eat better on the weekends when I see SO. We’re in a LDR, but see each other every weekend, and we always end up going out to eat a few times and having a few drinks. I always feel like I sabotage all of my progress on the weekends.
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
  • Eat 5 times a day.  I’m horrible at remembering to snack, but last year when I was dedicated to this, I really saw results.

I’m going to try to check-in everyday.  Does anyone else want to join me?  I’m always more successful when I have an accountabilibuddy.  (Saw that an other thread and loved it!)

@7SEVENJ9:  Cool!  Glad your brother is having good results with primal!  It was brought to my attention last week and I’ve been reading everything I can on it since!  I have scoured mda but not the other one you posted, so I’ll check it out, thanks!

I am starting boot camp tomorrow!!!! Besides that I will be drinking 3-4 liters of water per day, eating small meals including 2 protein shakes a day. I will share the brand later but apparently its pretty awesome and will help curb my appetite so when I eat my “meals” I will eat a bunch less. I also plan on no alcohol during the week. That could be a little difficult although getting up at 5 am will warrant skipping alcohol in itself!

I did W7D1 of c25k this morning and did another day of level 1 of 6 week 6 pack today.  So far I have eaten 4 small meals.  I’m going to cook dinner (seared tuna and steamed broccoli) when I’m done posting.  I only need to drink another half liter to meet my goal for the day.  I was extremely motivated today because apparently I gained 2 lbs between yesterday and today. ugh.  (I know it’s probably a normal fluctuation, but still very frustrating!)

Oh me me!  I am in too!  I started this the end of September, but it’s for real in October. 🙂

I mainly am looking to lose inches, not necessarily pounds, and do some serious toning.  I am 124 lbs and am at 25.44% body fat (measured today!).  Ideally, I would like to be around 15-18% body fat, but I am not sure what poundage that would be, and don’t really care too much.

My plan is to:

*Do Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones 5-6 days a week

*Do 45 minutes of yoga 1 day a week

*Eat 5 small, healthy meals

*Stop drinking so much Pepsi One… Embarassed

 

What’s Supreme 90?  Is it like P90X?  I tried P90X once and about died.  I would like to do something similar later on, but I am not quite at that level yet.

I’m so sore that I don’t know if I can muster up the courage to do the video a third day straight.  I have a 2 hour drive to my SO’s house to think it over I guess.

Everything else is good though. Did w7d2 (2.5 miles) this morning, have had 3 small meals, and a liter of water so far.

@7SEVENJ9: Thanks for the motivation! It is short–only 35 minutes. I’m going to do it! No excuses!
