Good morning all!

QOTD Wednesday, January 30, 2013: It's Woo Hoo Wednesday! Give yourself a big "woo hoo" for helping yourself to be healthy and share something that you did this week or this challenge to help you with your goals.

BRB with my tardy replies.

Talking Happy Hump Day!!

I'm in on the "do something daily" thing - I'm shooting for pushups and/or situps every day, even on yoga days when I know I'll be in plank he**! The fact that I don't have triceps but a wingspan is encouragement enough!

Side note: How the heck do you respond to multiple postings in one reply? For the life of me, I can't figure out how to use the multiquote thing...

I apologize that the day got away from me yesterday and I didn't get back for replies. Luckily you guys do a great job of keeping up the chatter!

The ActiveLink is a WW product and tracks activity points. If I wasn't using this I would seriously look at FitBit. There are supposed to be some other things coming out this year that are similar so I would look around at those as well. I think the bodymedia armband technology, if you are talking about what they used on Biggest Loser, has been around for awhile. I am leary of that only because one of the longtime WISHers had some serious reaction to that device because of the current it was sending through her body.

Congratulations on your great report from the doctor! I'm glad that you had the discussion about what you can reasonably expect as it will make things so much easier for you to know what you can realistically expect. You are still recovering from a serious illness so take care of yourself.

I know you will make your goal for February, too.

These are both excellent strategies and a great way to set yourself up for success!

Susan, thanks for sharing the info about the rice cooker -- I've always wondered how well those work or if they would just be another gadget stuffed in the closet.

I keep telling my that even if I don't reach my goal, I am still lighter than I was on January 1st. And I know that the only way to reach my goal is to just continue in February. So I am trying to be excited about starting a new month - and I am glad that I signed up for coaching in the second week as knowing that soon people will count on me does help me keeping focused.

So - for the last three days of January the plan is to stay on track and then start over with a lot of new motivation on February 1st!
You are not the only person who will be finishing January short of their goal. I think it is wonderful how recognize the great progress that you did make and that you are ready to rock n' roll in February. Keep up the good work!

Try to remember how good it feels when you are losing the weight, or moving more and getting some exercise. Everyone has their ups and downs, and that is a part of life, but you can do what you want to do and reach your goals, so if you want to move more, just get out for a 5 min walk around the block, and if the scale is not moving but you have been on track, think about the non-scale victories you have achieved, maybe you can run a 5k, maybe you're not as short of breath climbing up a flight of stairs as you used to be, or maybe those pants are a little less tight. Falling off track is a part of all of our lives, and getting in back on track, and back in the proverbial wagon, no matter how many times you need to do that, is what will make the difference between those who succeed and those who don't. You can do this!! Believe in yourself and never, ever, give up!!
Thanks for the great reminders, Kathy! Nice to see you!

I absolutely agree with Rose, find yourself a great yoga instructor, tell her what you are trying to achieve with yoga, and don't even give a thought as to what everybody else in the class is doing. If you have difficulty with the poses, you can always modify or find a pose that's comfortable for you . I started a year ago and it's taken that long and then some, to be able to pull off some of the poses. There's still PLENTY I can't pull off yet, but I know with patience I will get there. And so will you!
Another one who has recently started adding yoga as cross training and I really like it, even if I am doing lots of modifications.

Thanks for the great reminder and hope you are feeling better!

Yay for doing the first day of the C25K!

You may also want to check out Jeff Galloway's program -- the run/walk/run method. I honestly cannot run 3 miles but I can run walk all day long -- 15 miles at a time even. Galloway is the RunDisney training consultant and there is a ton of great information on the rundisney.com site as well as on Galloway's own site jeffgalloway.com

Galloway has an 8 week conditioning program that can be a good place to start before a 5K training program. Here is a link http://www.jeffgalloway.com/training/condition.html and a link to the 5K training program http://www.jeffgalloway.com/training/5k.html There is a great app for 5K training with Galloway and he walks you through every step.

As you can tell, I am a big Galloway fan. I have been e-coaching with him for over a year and he helped me continue running even after I was injured last year in a fall. I can't say enough nice things about him! :

I truly appreciate how much this group - and participating in it more actively - has helped me to stay on track for nearly a whole month now. I love reading everyone's posts even if I am not good at replying - even to the QOTD which I often miss.

I also love the new set up as knowing that we will start a new challenge thread in a few days really helps me focussing on a new goal instead of being sad about maybe not making my January goal.

And thanks to all the motivation I get from this thread I did manage to get my 5km run in today. I was at the gym and after 20 minutes on the treadmill I realised that I had been running a little bit too fast and started to be very hungry. I do get this sometimes... So I stopped running and proceeded to do my weight training. Doing this did go well and I stopped feeling soooo hungry, so I decided to try whether I could not finish the run after the weights. And I managed to do that by just running a little bit slower. So I am very happy with the exercise I got today - as on top of that are another 1.5 hours of walking (ot work, to lunch and then to the gym).
Good for you for pushing through and creating a new attitude for yourself! That was a great workout day for sure!

I think the Y is a great place if you are looking to try some new classes. If you join the Y you usually get at least an orientation with a trainer who can show you how to use the equipment. Classes at the Y seem to be very inclusive. There are usually all kinds of abilities in the classes that I take. I am a big fan of pool running in the deep end. And water aerobics might be lots of fun.

Almost everybody who is on this journey started at zero at some point or another.

I did not start out in shape. I was so out of shape in January of 2010. My initial goal was to just make it 30 min on the elliptical without dying. I couldn't even do the arms and legs at first, I just had to hold on.

We are all a work in progress. And I do mean work. It is hard work to get in shape. But it is so worth it in my opinion. I really struggle with self image and exercising and running has really helped me with my confidence. Still have issues, but I am getting there.

Again congrats on making that first step!

Flossbolna--so glad you like the new format. I have been really pleased, and I am looking forward to a fresh start in February as well!
And speaking of our fresh start for February that thread will be posted later on today.

I still can't get back into my exercise mode but that is my next step on this journey. My eating has been great but the next step is exercise.

The plank think of a puch up without going up or down. It is yoga move. It strengthens the entire body.

Here is a link to a picture of it.

You could also have your forearms down on the floor instead of straight arm.

One more half day of review and then meetings all afternoon and exams start tomorrow.

Off to get breakfast.

Have a happy and healthy day.
Hi Dona! Nice to see you and thanks for the info on the plank. Some of us have to drop their knees to do their planks. There are lots of modifications.

Kim, to the right of the "Quote" button is another button with a + on it. If you click it, it will change colors. Click the + button on any post you want to quote and then click post reply when you are ready to reply. All the posts you want to quote will be there. Just be sure each quote starts with the html code that says QUOTE and has the user name and a number and ends with / and QUOTE. I'm sure you'll be a multi-quoting pro in no time!

I can't explain it, but as much as I want to skip it on occasion, I really am glad I started it on January 1.
I'm so glad that's your daily mile is keeping your spirit positive!

I started yesterday for practice! I hadn't done a plank in ages and wasn't even sure I could hold it for a minute...but I did!

Great idea! And it probably will take 5 years for me to in shape enough to participate!

You have some great words of wisdom there! Thanks for the support! And YES! I absolutely do better when I am actively posting too

One step, one day at a time

WAY TO GO!

No, I do not think I have had realistic expectations and that has ALWAYS been a problen foir me. That is why my real resolution for this year is not to lose weight, not to get to a certain number... but to be happy with progress as it comes, to NOT give up (oh wait, that's not positively framed...), to KEEP GOING (that's better )! I have used MFP on and off for over 2 years now and looking back today I realized I restart at exactly (I mean exactly) the same weight every time I try to lose weight. I need to make these changes become my lifestyle and that takes the real work, the emotional work. I really am working on this, but I struggle. But I am here so that makes a huge difference for me! (and these QOTDs have really made me examine the way I approach things, lots of work! )

****************
OMG people! I did an HOUR on the eliptical today (burned 666 calories, no lie)! That is really amazing for me! I never thought I would be able to (or want to for that matter!)! Plus 40 mins of strength training today. Plus I made it to the Y 2 days in a row! I feel great! I love going to the Y and I never thought those words would come out of my mouth! Think I may try the Zumba class on Sat...
It makes me so happy to hear that the QOTD is helping you! That is such a big part of why we continue with them!

Woohoo on the workout!

And I can absolutely understand the excitement about new dishes! I needed a new tea pot and when I found one online I could not resist to order some breakfast mugs, bowls and plates to go with it! I hope it will inspire me to use them for healthy breakfasts - as breakfasts are still my least healthiest meals.

And I would be interested in joining in the "a plank a day" challenge for February - if you could tell me what a plank is!
New dishes are in the dishwasher, but I'm not sure there will be room in the cupboard for them! I may need to remove some of the colors I don't like as well. I love, love, love my rainbow of Fiesta ware!

Glad to have you join the "plank a day" challenge. I see that Dona gave some great info on plank position. I prefer to do them with my forearms on the floor, rather than in full push-up position. Less stressful on my shoulders, but equally challenging. Just be careful of your form...the idea is to keep your body straight like a plank...no butts in the air!

Don't be a stranger!

But I love it as I can do it as a tiny break in my office. So hopefully by the end of February I am going to look back and laugh at how a month ago I nearly collapsed after 30 seconds.
When I was doing them regularly I could do at least 90 seconds, but I can't remember the last time I did one before Monday! I was truly trembling by 20 seconds but got my head in the right place and managed to hold a full minute! Hopefully by March a minute won't be a struggle.

I really stepped up my workouts this winter and even managed a few double workout days this month! Exercise is the thing I struggle with the most, so this is a true victory for me....so woooohoooo for me!

Thanks Lisa! (Ok, still don't have it but I'll keep trying...)

QOTD: Since I gained back everything I lost last week , I'm paying extra attention to what I eat this week, especially since my workout schedule has gone down the drain. However, all is good as by this time on Friday, I'll be walking my butt off at !!!

Ok everyone! Two more days! Two more days is probably not going to make a huge difference in your numbers for the month, but it is two more days to make good choices and to set yourself up for a fabulous February!!

Setting my mile a day goal for January AND posting it on fb every day really kept me motivated this month. I was miserably miserable when I came back from the marathon. But I had made a public commitment and honestly at first the fear of failing (yet again) was the kick in the pants I needed. I know I am not a failure, but I was not feeling very good about things when we got home. I was frustrated and disappointed about so many things. I have since gained some well needed perspective, and I am HUGELY proud of myself for sticking with my commitment to myself. It kept me on the wagon when I just wanted to sit in the dirt and cry.

So woohoo to me, for being here. For meal planning. And for exercising!

On this next to last day of the month, let me give YOU a big WOOHOOO for starting us off on the right note this year with our new challenge format! Thank you!!

No crying allowed!! Glad you were able to be PROUD of yourself... because we are proud of you!!

Happy Wednesday friends! Crazy morning here. Up and out for high school swim practice at 4:50 am .... and then DH called at 5:15 while we were driving to let us know that there was a 2 hour delay for school (due to some icy roads)! DD called coach, but since we were all already on our way, she decided to go ahead with practice. I never got called to work, so I stayed on the TM for a full 60 minutes, plus a 5 minute cool down and a 5 minute stretch. I haven't showered yet, as I am going to do some free weight work after I say good-bye here. I did a good 5+ miles including my cool down time this morning, alternating a fast walk and with fast running bursts.

So after our Y time we headed back home (after driving our carpool friend home... 20 minutes out of the way ), had some breakfast (mmmm... greek yogurt with blueberries!) and a bit of extra rest and relaxing. Then we headed out again at 9:40 for school. And now I am home until 2:40 with plenty to keep me busy!

If any one else is interested in doing the "plank-a-day" challenge with me for February, just let me know! There might be prizes involved for those who complete the challenge!

Ear/vertigo is feeling all better today. Chiropractor did some facial massage to help with any sinus stuff going on, which I think really helped. Although I must say that I can feel a bit of sinus pressure going on today that is new, so I need to nip that in the bud! My goal for this winter was go not have my "annual" sinus infection! I managed to take care of the infection that was brewing before Christmas without a doctor visit or any antibiotics.... hope I can do that again!! Tempted to take a bath today instead of a shower so I can sit and breathe the steam for a bit.... sounds like a good excuse to relax, right??

Never made it to the grocery last night, so the fruit and veggie bins are nearly empty. I will make myself some roasted sweet potato for lunch and finish up yesterday's chicken soup. I have two slightly limp red peppers and two onions, so I will also cook those up along with my last handful of baby spinach to go with eggs for dinner. And I will take out the last few apples that need to be used up to make a small batch of applesauce for the kids. After that we will be totally out of produce! I will hit Costco and the market while DD is swimming tonight. (Wait....I'm lying! I just checked and I have one grapefruit and 4 white potatoes left!! So the kids get roasted potatoes with their eggs and I have an afternoon snack! )

Time to be productive! TTYL................P

Good Morning Everyone!

It's been a great month! I made my goal and I'm so proud if myself. I'm looking forward to February BL. Also, I am definitely in for the " plank a day keeps the fat away " challenge

Hi everyone! Gee, January went by fast! I just want to say how this board helps keep me motivated.
If I did that plank thing right now, I'd prolly kill myself! LOL! But just wait until they fix my knee at the end of the month and WATCH OUT come summer. LOL
And Woo Hooo! I really underestimated my goal for January. I figured that with the holidays, a Disney cruise and 10 days in the parks I'd be happy just to maintain for the month. I really surprised myself. After six months, I think the new "habits" are really kicking in.

Guess my woohoo moment was yesterday when I discovered what a great snack pickled gherkins are!!! I have a large jar on my desk to help with the snack attack now!!!

Will get weighed in the morning before work and send in my final 'score'

When is the Feb challenge page being set up??? (or have I already missed it somewhere!)

OK, so I'm in for the plank a day keeps the fat away program but how do I do a plank?? LOL


I really want a WOOHOO for January but right now I'm feeling frustrated. I have done everything perfectly this week and the scale has yet to budge. Not an ounce all week. I'm a little irritated.
The only difference I have seen is I'm not as bloated as usual. That's it.
What am I doing wrong?
