June to end of August challenge anyone?
That's a great idea, I think maybe we should with ourselves in on Sunday June 1st and post our weight, we will do what you said about posting recipes, we will put up everything we had for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and if we cheat we have to be honest, we put up when we work out or when we need some motivation if we feel like we don't want to work out, we will only weigh in every three weeks to see bigger results and that should motivate us more except for the last month we wait four weeks until August 31st and weigh in to see the biggest difference hopefully, after the biggest gap, we post pictures after before and after pictures as our profile photos, and keep in touch telling each other how we feel when we feel good or tired or anything,
Okay so let's do it Mercy, hopefully we have some new members join us by Sunday, I'm going to put it on my calendar and remind you, we're going to put our weight and help each other along the way for three months, yay!
That sounds like a good idea, but let's try to make it as simple as we could, not everybody can always cook at home, let's also find things that we can buy outside that is healthy and healthy things we can cook at home, let's start simple first, like oatmeal for breakfast maybe with some fruit like a banana or two, for lunch something like a salad with chicken or none, maybe a wrap or a big fruit salad, for dinner I'm not too sure does anyone have any ideas for dinner?
That sounds great, so I have read that we should eat breakfast like a king/queen, lunch like a prince/princess and dinner like a pauper, do you believe that? What would be a big healthy breakfast where you know you're full and ate healthy? I'm going to do some research also
Of course Cynthia, we don't start till Sunday the beginning of June it's perfect timing, so my question is..... How many pounds should be our goal? 20?30?40? I want to lose about 60 - 70 pounds and look how I used to look when I came out of bootcamp in the Marines, I let myself go and need motivation, I know in three months I won't do that but I think 30 is possible, what do you ladies think?
That sounds yummy, what do you think about pancakes? Waffles? Omelet? Turkey? French Toast? The more fruit the better right?
Okay so maybe we can keep it in the 20-30 range, isn't pop tarts too much sugar? Grab a banana or an apple instead
I'm so in. I haven't worked out in a few years. Went from fit college football athlete to a fat old man. Haha. I could lose about 50lbs.
So who is going to organize this? Every one should put a photo in and their weight. Twice a week we update how we did working out and eating. Every two weeks we should our photo and weight.
I'd like to join this challenge too! Took boxing class and loved them, but due to my schedule am having a hard time getting back to it. I'd love to lose 20 - 25 lbs by the end of August.
Let's do it Saja!
Yeah let's put our weight on Sunday, two weeks sounds good, one year ago my cousin and I had a plan where we would only check our weight every three weeks, every three weeks I one weeks before August 31st so I was thinking we wait all of August or if everyone else prefers we do it two weeks then let's go ahead and do that, posting pictures is a great idea, and of course daily motivation from each other, we tell each other everything that has to do with our fitness goals, I think we should even post pictures of the scale when we weigh in and pictures of ourselves every two weeks or every four weeks, we share any recipes and exercises that can help us out, I'm so excited I didn't think my post would even get a response at all
I'm sorry Mercy I didn't read all the post. That sounds great to me!!
Hi Mercy I have t25. I just got it in the mail this week. I heard its pretty intense.
Hey I just want to make something clear...is really different loose weight than loose BODY FAT! I don't want to loose that much weigh because I don't want to loose my muscle mass and I took a test where my body just had 15% of body fat even that I'm too heavy is more muscle mass... the scale is just # plus doesn't check your body type or structure...
So I'm very simple when it comes to working out, there's cardiovascular day and strength day, what really helped me out last year when I lost 25 pounds (though I gained it back plus more), was couch to 5K, I'm going to be doing that app again, Monday Wednesday and Friday, Tuesday and Thursday I want to do strength, squats on both days, day A military overhead press and penlay rows, day B bench press and deadlifts, I also want to plan on going for some walks, there's also a great app that has challenges like making it to 100 push-ups 200 crunches, and like three other things that will take a few minutes of my time, crunches I remember in bootcamp are one of the best things to do, what kind of exercises do you guys have in mind? Mercy and Mark I know you guys have yours set, do you plan on doing anything else besides that?
I'm going to do T25 I have a friend in Pretty good shape he said if I follow the exercise and eating I should lose significant weight
So let's finish this week on a good note or with a lot of cake haha but Sunday let's post those numbers and let's do this thing, of you mess up don't feel sad.. Share with the team and let's give each other the motivation we need to make better decisions!
