Weight 195.4
7 days of water & sunshine (Yay me)
However a week of trying to make cakes for my daughter's birthday and a major frosting addiction/can't stay out of it if it's in my house.

Starting the week fresh. Making good choices and trying to behave.

This week - get your water and sunshine! 15 (or more) minutes of sun is good for your vitamin D levels, which improve all kinds of things!

Take 1 pt for each day you get both your 64+oz of water and 15+ min of sunshine!

well i'm going to qualify this weigh in. I'm completely disappointed in myself. I started the week really good, but in the end the stress got to me and I made some very bad choices. So....

Yay Jess!

I need to weigh-in yet, but I wanted to give you all this week's challenge:

Eat a healthy breakfast! Too many times we are too busy to eat, so this week's challenge is to eat breakfast within an hour of waking to start our metabolism. Donuts don't count as healthy ladies - and sorry Krystyl - scones don't count either...LOL!

I honestly have no idea what week we are on now. Sorry.

This week's stats:
Weight: 270.6

Which is higher than my last report here, but down considerably from my last few weigh-ins. *sigh*

My weigh in for this week is 311.8 YAY!

This week's challenge: +1 Challenge

The object for this week is to shake up our routines a bit. Each day try to add something out of the norm or to your routine. So, for instance if you usually walk a mile a day you could add a strength routine for 15 minutes afterward. Or, if you don't normally get enough veggies you could add a new veggie to your plate. Or if, like me you don't get enough sleep - you could try to go to bed an hour earlier one night.

Good luck finding ideas, and let us know what you did for each day - it will help give us ideas :) 1 pt/day that you add something.

I'm back! Took one week off for daughter's wedding, then next week off for hubby's surgery and then last week went by before I knew it. So now I'm back in the groove again!
I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much better I felt when I was regularly exercising and how much I miss it when I don't! Yeah, that's right, me the woman who used to have all kinds of excuses for NOT exercising has now become addicted to it!
184.75 tonight

Jess, Where are you eating at in your calorie range? Try eating 3-4 days just above your top range (not out of control) and then come back down to where you are at for the rest of the week. See if that gets things moving again.

7 bonus points.
my weight hasn't BUDGED in almost 4 weeks. I've been stuck at the same weight FOREVER. I'm not sure what the problem is. My eating has stayed consistent and I exercise in the schedule that I put down here every week.
It's pretty frustrating.

I'm a little upset that the weight keeps going up. But on the other hand, my measurments have been staying the same or going down, so I know it's muscle that I'm gaining. I just need to keep reminding myself that!

Mon - (cardio) Plyometrics
Tue - (ST) Shoulder & Arms, AB Ripper X
Wed - (Cardio) Yoga X
Thu - (ST) Legs and Back, AB Ripper X

This week's challenge is to plan your exercise. Not necessarily to the minute, but in general. For instance:

My plan for the week:
Mon: strength
Tue: TKD (cardio)
Wed: strength
Thr: TKD (cardio)
Fri: strength
Sat: Walking (cardio)

You get 1 pt for posting your plan for the week. 1 pt/day for completing your planned exercise, or 1/2 pt if you didn't do your planned exercise but you did something else instead with the approximate same results.

Good luck everyone!!

The challenge was for adding salt to your already cooked food. I know some people (like my parents) pick up the salt shaker before they even try their food...LOL

No salt free days: usually can be under the 2300 mg allowed, but always some sodium. And yesterday was bad with Easter ham.

Still need to get those measurments. Will be a priority this week.

I got shin splints when I started walking fast, before I started the couch to 5k. My son told me to stretch my feet out away from my body where my toes were pointed straight out from my leg. Sit down and stretch out like a ballerina trying to dance on her toes, only do it while sitting. Then try to bring the toes back toward your legs in the front. Doing that after I walk fast or run keeps me from getting shin splints.
Thanks for the new challenge! I too love the outdoors so this one will be fun to do.

I tried to do the couch to 5k but I can't seem to get past week 2. It is probably pscyological, but I'm struggling with breaking in new running shoes, shin splints, and all that fun stuff. I'm going to stay on week 2 for a while.
