- Wedding: April 2012
I’m so in. I don’t need to lose much weight but I definitely need tone! I have that gross arm flab and really don’t want to have it on my wedding day. I have such a sweet tooth though, it kills me!
Did a few core moves at the house, then did a half hour at the gym. Pretty damn sore from yesterday.
I literally bought a dress that if I gain a pound it won’t fit!!!! AHHH!! So in the next couple months I need to maintain or lose! I actually started a plan a couple months ago from the posting from another Bee (sorry can’t remember who) but it’s in the book The New Rule of Lifting for Women and i’ve noticed a difference.
So far it’s been going good for me except the last three days I’ve been slacking with exercising.. Last week I did well though with doing hard cardio 3 times a week and some weights.
Weighed myself today..
From January 1 to now I am down 4 pounds! 🙂 I am happy about that even though its gradual..
I can notice a difference for sure.. Feel better, sleeping better, and not as “blah”. Just gotta keep motivated..
This was my first week of the new routine I’ve worked up for myself (strength training Weds, Fri, Sun; cardio Tues, Thurs, Sat; rest Sun) and I’m doing well! I didn’t make it to Zumba class last night, but I did a lot of cleaning which sort of counted lol. The plan for tonight is to combine cardio and my lower-body strength training to make up for yesterday’s lapse. I’m determined to make it into the 250’s by the end of this month! Hovering around 263 right now.
Everyone has their goals so once the exercise programme is in place (with good eating) then we’ll definately see results we want…Nice work everyone!!!
I started back at work on Monday and I tell you it has been for the best! I’m now back playing netball twice a week with hitting the gym 5-6 times a week and also doing a fast river walk of 9km on my off day…i’ve dropped 9kg in last 6mths so only just 3kg to lose by April which i’m very determined to do and i’ll be at 68kg…still bigger than you smaller ladies but i’m unfortunately bigger boned (polynesian blood). I don’t mind though, i’m so much stronger now and I can finally start seeing the muscle building in my arms from the weights/cardio on upper body…also the pilates has been fantastic for muscle toning too and stronger tighter abs and core…yay finally getting there
So on the 6th I was at 158.5…….today I am 162.7……
my weight has been climbing up and up for the past couple of weeks despite the fact that I’ve been doing a ton of exercise & trying to eat healthier but as of this morning its going back in the right direction – I’ll just attribute it to the fact that I’ve upped my exercise and was retaining a bit of water from that and from it being that time of the month.
have any of you ladies joined the bee fitocracy group??
I am supposed to get my period next week, so I am really hoping it is just water retention and hormones. I haven’t been eating horribly, and I have been going to the gym, so I am just pretty shocked. 🙁
Officially signed up for Weight Watchers today with my mom. I though I eat really healthy as is, but much to my surprise by lunch I have used up 19 of my 26 points! Ouch!
Alright, ladies. Checking in. I’m still at 132 and I’m 5’3″ almost – not a lb loss since 2012 began, unfortunately…I ran a half marathon last Saturday the 14th (2 hours 5 min!) but I have this weird fear of eating too little when I’m training for a race and having a horrible long run with no energy, so I wasn’t seriously dieting until THIS WEEK. I never lose weight when training for long runs, sadly. I usually gain, if anything.
So, my goal is to get to 118 by April 20th, which I figure is about when I’ll do my last dress fitting! Our wedding is 6/2.
My plan is to stick to 1200 cals 4 days a week, 1500 one day a week, and one “free” day, within reason, plus a good solid workout 6 days a week. I take one day off working out, and I’m doing Jillian Michaels ripped in 30 AT LEAST 3 days a week, as I have time.
Anyone else doing Jillian’s videos? What do you think of them? I think Ripped in 30 is HARD. I’ve had it since November but have been kinda spotty in how regularly I do it.
It’s going to be a loooong haul to stick to this until April, but OH I’m dying to do it. 132 pounds is far too much on my frame. It looks awful.
Anyone already met their weight loss goal? I’d love to see before vs. after for motivation if you feel like posting. If anyone else has motivational thoughts they use, let’s hear ’em!
