Better body by christmas
Ok Ive been on here a while and some good positive stuff about.Ok this is my very last go at getting a fit group together,to give support,help with fitness and a good kick up the ass,time to get real and quit the muffin top,get off the sofa and plan you in a healthier future,whos with me????come on lazy!!
Carole: My name is Sammie. I'm in with you as a motivation group member. I just started using skimble the other day. I need all the motivation I can get. I have never really been motivated about working out. I finally hit rock bottom about a month ago when I faced the scale and I saw I was almost 300 pounds. Carole, even if our motivation group is you and me that's better than nothing. Do you have a goal in mind for how many pounds you want to lose before Christmas?
I'm in at least 3 times a week if not more :) I would like to lose 15lbs by Christmas but I am aiming for 20!
Hey Carole its my first time using this app and posting a reply I'm only 17 about to be 18 and before I graduated from high school I worked out every other day now that school is over I I'm not doing anything I can see that I'm becoming a little chubby I would love to be in this group to help each other out.
I am sarat from India... I am 22, I weigh 200 pounds... Can I be a member of your group?
Yes of course welcome x
I have a small doubt if u don't mind..... I don't have a gym membership, is it possible to achieve weight loss goals and build muscle using body weight exercises????
Yes yes it is possible to get just as fit without using gym,I did a bootcamp so I built muscle
Am sorry for asking so many questions..I don't have any clue about all these workouts...though am learning.... If you can tell me some exercises, I will be grateful.... If I am.bugging you, pls it's fine if you don't reply... No issues at all :)
I'm in too! Very new to exersice. Used to do yoga but nothing like the stuff on here. I've gone pro now and have done a couple of programmes. I've deffo noticed a difference in my posture and core strength and have a tighter bum but I still have all the belly fat :( I'm sure there's a six pack behind there though haha. I want to do more cardio and eat less. Boy do I love food though.
How we doing this then?
Hi ya I'm quite new to the app too and exersice full stop. On the workout section go to the filter pull down tab and you can select what body part you want to target for how lond and at what intensity. For cardio I scroll through to find those titled as such because nothing normally comes up in the searches I do.... or I recommend going pro so u can do tailored workouts. God it sounds like I work for them haha
A big welcome to all who have joined this group,Im Carole,Ive done a bootcamp,trained in karate,and studied emotional and stress disorders related to eating.
As bootcamp was a great thing for me I like to carry it on here,Right the thing is to get real with ourselfs and have a good look in the mirror and what we want to achieve,this is not about diets or how slim u get its about building a strong healthy body,hopefully looking good at christmas time.Exercise in the morning is good,running or fast walking,drinking water is a must,and eating healthy 5 times a day,three meals ,two snacks,building more protien into meals.any exercise you find fun have a go at,swimming,running,skating,dancing,zumba,yoga,whatever suits you,three times a week for an hour,or half hour each day.a cheat day is fine,like i said focus on eating healthy 80% of time,but odd treats are fine.I want to hear from u every week how you are getting on,good or bad,take a pic to show how ur journey is going,any questions i will try to answer,Im not sure how u pm here as im v new?lets keep it mivibg along support each other,I will put up two big posts a week to give ideas.this is your body,your life,with support and new ideas we can get where we want,food ideas,exercise,or any positive posts pls send here,on my posts follow and look for the better body by christmas,best of luck xx will try to answer questions,theres alot of good exercises here,but if you are new start off slow x
I actually worked out today! I didn't work out for very long or very hard, but I did and that's what counts. I also got my 3 year old daughter excited to work out with me. I did the following during my 15 minute workout...
25 calf raises
25 knees to elbows
20 pulse ups (reverse crunches)
50 Chest and back opener
10 pushups (beginner pushups)
20 Scissors kick
I'm super proud of myself. Now my daughter and I are going to play wii sports. :)
