Welcome to Real Chicks Getting Fit.
A place where real 'chicks' can come to find tips, resources, and support in their journey to better health.
Like I said in my goals, I've made no real workout / nutrition this week. However, I have been boxing a lot this week to workout. I'm sharing this because it's a sport I've wanted to try my entire life, but I've always been to scared, or intimidated or embarrassed and a hundred other things. But I did it, and I love it. I consider that my success of the week :)Hope everyone else is doing awesome! I love seeing everyones updates xx- DS
Everything is a ok so far.
I started my running program & ran! It may have only been for a minute at a time but I ran!!
My biggest challenge is getting in protein! I'll have to buy a ton of chicken to eat! Other than that, pretty good :)
@upinthecosmos - that is how every runner has started out, 1 minute quickly multiplies I promise! Great job :)
Exercise, eating well and drinking water have being going absolutely fantastic! Great to have something to keep me accountable. My biggest challenge this week: TRACKING. I am really bad at tracking. Today I had to track yesterday and today because I fell a little behind..whoops. What will help me get over this tracking hump?
I have this fear of running on the treadmill, it steams from my teenage high school years of running on the treadmill and being mooed at. Yea, people can be jerks.However, tonight I got on the treadmill, and jogged for the first time in my entire adult life. And guess what...? No one mooed at me...no one even looked in my direction. It was very liberating! I think I may even run on it again during my workout tomorrow *smug*
i started my running program too!! loving it so far. or rather just loving the fact that i have started and am sticking with it so far.yay for boxing illiterate! i love it. wish i could do it more often.
@sarah YAY! Beginning to run on a treadmill at a gym can be intimidating to anyone, so I am VERY proud of you for overcoming your fears and doing it! It takes a bit to realize that most of the other people are so focused on their workouts that they don't care about you. As I'm running sometimes I like to look around and just pray for everyone and think about how proud of themselves everyone on the treadmill will be at the end of their workout. Beware running gets addicting and 6 months from now don't be suprised if you love it!!! Good job!As far as my week.. it's going pretty good. The Insanity workout has been done every day (even at 4am the days I work) and I've been eating well, however I haven't been able to keep up tracking. I'm slightly frustrated to not see the scale going down... but my body is changing through my intense workouts and that's all that matters. Sorry for the long post. Keep up the amazing work ladies!
I'm doing well on the exercise front.... not doing so well on the food front. My main meals are fine but I keep snacking all over the place. Even eating chocolate :( So feeling a little low at the moment but hoping for a better end to the week for that Monday measure in!!!
challenge is going well, getting those miles in.
everything is going well. no gym time as of yet: but my nutrition is on point. Weight is not lost in the gym, its lost in the kitchen. 80% food 20% exercise...so I'm focusing on what I eat more than anything.
yay so many of you are kicking butt this week. Me? I'm only kickin half butt. Food has magically snapped back into health mode... exercise on the other hand... beh.. between going back to work this week and dealing with "aunt flo" the little fat girl inside of me just sits and blows raspberries at the thought of exercise.
Pretty good, so far! I'm well within my range for my daily calories, doing a great job with my water, and doing pretty good with my exercise. I even walked down and back up 10 flights of stairs yesterday. Whew! Like Carbie Girl, Aunt Flo is here for a visit (ugh), but I'm still managing to keep up with my program.
I am doing pretty good. I'm being active each and every day and i'm keeping my calorie count right where it needs to be. I even managed to beat down the urge to eat away some depression!
I'm content, and that is probably the first time in many years that I have started a new year feeling good :)Have been battling a major case of PMS this week (I feel guilty for a few things that has caused me to do the past few days) so if anyone has a magic cure I'd love to try it LOLRan a 10.28 mile this morning too, so super happy with myself.
Working out this week has become a challenge. I have run out of hours in my days this week - some unforeseen stuff, some poor planning - just gotta DO IT.
I have been able to attain all my goals until this evening. I spent most of the day at the hospital with my mom and only had nothing to eat. After getting home I was starved to death and have been munching ever since. I need to stop because tomorrow is my WW weigh in. OUCH!
Everything has been good so far other than the monthly visit. My eating has been good water has been guzzled and my workouts have been challenging. I do have a NSV already two pairs of pants I just bought two weeks ago in a size smaller than before are already baggy in the butt and legs... So I'm definately excited about that.
I feel pretty good. I am staying with in my calories. Exercising a little bit every day. The real test comes this weekend. I have to keep busy. I haven't met all of my goals but I am confident I can get it all done.
Epic fail. Stress level at work = fast food (because it's easy) & I come home & pass out...
The beginning of the week was rough as Aunt Flo was trying to kill me. But she is packing up and leaving so I was able to get out and run. 3.5 miles with the hubby. I am going to have a bit of workouts to make up for my goal of 122 by the end of the challenge, but I WILL make it up :)Stephanie@Faith&Fitness
I have walked 6 miles, with 4 more to go... and overall my eating has been good... not much weight coming off, but I am attributing it to my increase in exercise, and hoping that in a few days it will start to come off quicker.
so far the week has been going great! Been following plan eating right and haven't skipped a workout only concern I have is hubbies work is having a "holiday" party on sunday at a casino and they want to drink and eat and stuff so we will see how that goes.
Week started off great undersized and ate very clean everyday because of school but after stepping on the scale yesterday and saw instead of losing weight I gained a pound I was very upset and frustrated.
This body was not built in a week...that's what I have to keep telling myself. I'm going to have to stop weighing myself daily. It's driving me crazy and it's making me think that I'm not progressing. I want to stick to my plan and not be derailed by the daily fluctuations in my weight. This week I completed all of my planned workouts (gotta run today) and that's got to count for something.
So far, so good. No real issues good or bad- status quo, so to speak. Probably wouldn't hurt to increase the exercise but doubt that will happen just yet. Staying within the calorie limit and drinking the water. We'll see what the scale has to say.
Some how I missed the days we are supposed to link. I am doing good on the challenge. I had my weigh in today at Weight Watchers and lost 6 pounds.
