Hi everyone, I have added the following to post #3.......

Hope we're all ready for Awesome August. As I have no volunteers for coaching yet, I'll post a QOTD in the morning to start us off........if you haven't already done so, don't forget to PM me your start weight, and your target loss for August. Can I please ask you to PM rather than leave on the thread because IF things get busy, I might miss it!!!

See you in the morning!

I would like to join you all this month

I've had success in the past with this group and I am freshly motivated after watching Extreme Weight Loss last night. Loved the idea they did with the marbles transferred from one jar to another as you lose each pound. I'm just not sure where to purchase marbles and single mason jars

Looking forward to success for all of us

I am starting Shaun T T25 on August 5th so keeping accountability here will help too.
I want to hear more about this! Shaun T scares me
but I've always wanted to try one of his programs.

Unfortunately, I know about marbles due to DSs. I would start at the dollar store. You can use vases or something other than mason jars. They may also have marbles. If not, Walmart has them. They used to be with the toys for about $1 or $2 a bag. I say "used to" because I haven't actually looked for them in months. If you can't find glass containers, try a craft store like Michaels or Joann Fabrics. They may even have marbles lol.

Jillbur, Shaun T always scared me as well. I lost 25 pounds last using with P90X and LOVED it!! Sadly, I broke my ankle back in March and was not allowed to walk for 2 months nor exercise for 4 months so it has all come back

My problem is time...I know everyone says that is just an excuse but life is busy with a very active 7 year old!! T-25 is by Shaun T but is ONLY 25 minutes for each DVD. You do a different DVD every day so keeps it fun and different. You work, but knowing you only have to focus for 25 minutes makes it a little easier. There is a girl who does moderation so with my ankle still healing I follow her most of the time.

I am only 2 days into it...today will be my 3rd day but I like it so far HAHA.....sore today but I know from P90X that the soreness gets better HAHA.

I am a beachbody coach so if you want more information PM me and we can touch base that way. We have facebook groups that keep us motivated etc so it is really great way to work out if you don't have someone with you to motivate you. I have never tried Insanity but might have to check that out after T-25!!!

Thanks for the info! I never did P90X because of time. I am a teacher & have a DS7 & DS10 who both play soccer but in different levels. DS7 also takes gymnastics. So, by the time I get home, I have about 30 minutes to squeeze in a workout before I start dinner & head off to practices. DH does handle dinner about half the time & practices, but I like to go watch my boys, too. This sounds like a good program!

Good luck! I'm sure you'll do great!

Hola friends and happy August to you! No, I did not fall off a cliff....just still super busy, even "post party"!

The party was wonderful and delightful and the weather was superb and the house and yard (minus my bedroom and bathroom ) looked terrific.

Last week of swim season just wrapping up.... Granite State Championships is this weekend and then we are officially done (although she will still be swimming some to stay in shape for college)! I can hardly believe it.

I'm in for August, but won't be around as much to chat...next week we pack for vacation and start packing DD for college...then we are away for a week, then 6 days home before we take DD to college! Then school starts up for DS and I got back to work as a sub and possibly increase my hours with WW. where did the summer go??


Hope you all have been well. Errand to run now, so I'll BBL. TTYL.............P

I need to try the T25 too. Ive tried regular Insanity and it about killed me. I have a few friends that are Beachbody Coaches and Ive been thinking about becoming one too. I have to research it more.

One of my friends just joined and she is loving it and already made back her investment in the first two weeks. She thinks it will be perfect for me to do as well.

Good evening fellow WISHers.....sorry I'm on so late in the day, but we've had massive network problems here today.....no computers at work at all until 2:30 this afternoon, so then had to rush to get everything done!

I will add our latest participants so post #3 in a moment. As I am so late, lets call this QOTD for today and tomorrow.......

August is the worst month for me for fitness and weight loss. It's sooo warm that I can't be bothered to cook proper meals, so pick at bad stuff. It's the time for most people to take their 2 weeks summer holidays in the UK, so work becomes quieter and less formal.....clothing gets more casual at work, and people bring in all sorts of naughty snacks!!! Got to be strong!!!

So, this brings me to QOTD......What is the worst time of year for you to stick with your weight loss/fitness committment?? (Vacations to Disney don't count...we all know how hard they are!!)

See you later


PS..have now added the following to post #3

Thanks Eliza!

For me its the period from October 1st to Januarys 1st. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I love sweets. So I have to really control myself with all the huge bags of candy that start popping up around October. Luckily Im too old to trick or treat anymore.

With November and December its all about the holidays. With all the baking that everyone brings in, and little gifts here and there of food, its really hard. Especially around Christmas Holiday.

I totally agree with Tinkertoy00!! I usually call it "sugar season", candy is my biggest downfall and there is no end to it from mid Oct to Jan. Halloween is my fav holiday & I usually go all out with a fog machine and the works!! We get tons of trick or treaters so I use that as my excuse to buy tons if candy, then say I will take leftovers to work, but it usually never makes it!

This year I have a cunning plan in that I will be in WDW for Halloween so no need to buy any candy. Then I just have to wade through all the treats & goodies that come with the rest of sugar season, lol Hopefully I will be well into the habit of better eating & exercise by then and rely on that to help me avoid the sugar pits!!

Hmmm normally I would say the time between Halloween and New Years is the hardest for me as well but I actually lost weight this past holiday season. I'm having a hard time this summer with all the bbq's, beer and wine! Looking forward to getting back into a routine when my girls go back to school and I am back to work after next week!

I have to agree with Oct. - Jan. All those holiday goodies are so tempting and traditional! Gotta have the spinach dip/stuffing/candy whatever the holiday traditional junk food is!

Of course, today I would say that TODAY is particularly hard for me. Had to put our dog to sleep today, so all I want to do is eat. Haven't caved yet and am within my calories for the day, so so far so good.
