      I pre-ordered Dr. Ian Smith’s book — Super Shred and should receive it this week. I followed his diet a few years back and lost 20 lb. Since then, I’ve put the weight back on.

      His plan works as it is ordinary foods in combination that boost metabolism while leaving you feeling satisfied and not starving. He also includes activities to do throughout the day as part of the eating plan. Now he has a mentor program as well!

      Soooo three things: new eating plan, doing the activities, and signing up for a mentor to ‘bug’ me by email! LOL!

      Three changes in 2014:

      1) No more glasses of wine through the week days….. I have a challenge I need to meet in 2015… but with periodic checks through 2014!!

      2) Every single day… 7 days per week I need to be strengthening one of my key muscle groups!! Diligently!!!

      3) Be a leader in my goal for 2015!!! I need to take the road less traveled and be the person everyone aspires to be!!

      And now, some background to my 2015 challenge. A few moms and I got to talking on FB…. Military moms and moms of kids in military schools etc. We have decided we WILL do the Murph workout on ‘Michael Murphy’s’ birthday in 2015. Michael Murphy was a leader in SEAL TEAM 6. Google him if you need to.

      Why are we waiting so long to do this? Well, the MURPH workout is this, 1 mile run.. then, 100 pull ups.. then, 200 push ups.. then, 300 squats.. then, another 1 mile run! We are moms.. mostly over 50 yrs old.. we have injuries to overcome and ‘life’ to overcome. We will do this. I have no doubt… I have set up a group page and we have consultants there to help us. We are taking it slow to heal injuries. No sense exacerbating prior injuries.. let’s heal them.. and move on! We will do this!

      I have also been challenged to a ‘class set’ by another mom at my son’s college. By October 2014!! I will meet her challenge!!! A class set is 100 push ups plus the year they graduate. My son graduates in 2016 so my ‘class set’ is 100 push ups + 16!

      I will meet these challenges come hec or high water!!

      If anyone is interested in joining us.. please do not hesitate to message me. We are fun loving.. but are trying to meet our goals!!! Let me know if you are interested. We are trying to get sponsors on board so we can help monetarily.. Wounded Warriors, or the Michael Murphy foundation… something like this. We are still looking at options. Let me know if you are interested in joining us!

    • #446806

      My fitness plans for the New Year are to ride my stationary bike for at least 20 minutes 3 times a week to try to eleviate some of the pain in my knees from arthritus. This was suggested by my physical therapist.

As long as I’m working towards the goal for the end of the year I’m good.

Gotta start somewhere!

      I plan to stop eating wheat – I don’t think of it as “giving up” because my main resolution this year is to be kind to myself. Wheat does not make me feel like I’m being kind because it makes me feel so sick. I’m going to stop stressing about things I cannot change. It’s useless and it makes me feel bad. I’m also going to try and find a pedometer that works, because I’d like to make the 10,000 steps per day as well.

    • #447128

      I plan to continue my workout journey and run a half marathon this year.

I will have before pics and progressive pics through the end of next year to see the results that will also include a weekly weigh in and waist measurements.

      I have so far to go to meet my goals that it is overwhelming at times. But I want this year to be different (don’t we all). So I’m making a promise to myself to walk at the track 2-3 times a week to start, cutting down the fat and sugar by replacing with healthier alternatives, and educating myself on healthier living by reading/researching on the topic at least an hour a week. My goal is to lose an average of 2 lbs per week and keep it off!

      My ultimate goal is to lost 80 pounds by the end of the year…however, my “in a perfect world” goal is to lose the weight by the first of August when my daughter graduates from grad school. In order to do this, I am going to…
      1. eat healthy…more lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats…less processed foods
      2. drink more water…at least 64 oz a day, working up to half my body weight in oz (maybe I should use an IV)
      3. exercise more…as out of shape as I am, I will start with walking 30 minutes every day and cardio 3 days a week working up to 5 days a week

Plan nutrition meals that help with wt loss. Prepare lesson plans at least one month in advance so that I’m not working right up to the last minute which is very stressful and causes me to eat.

      I plan on reaching my weight loss goal this year so I’m finally comfortable in my own skin! I lost 15 lbs this year and I want another 15 lbs off! I plan on following T25 along with walking! Another health and fitness goal of mine is to quit drinking diet pop and only drink water! My biggest goal is to try to workout atleast 5 times per week!

    • #447393

      First, as I am a diabetic who is also permanently disabled, and physical activity is painful, it has been very difficult to be physically active in any way that is beneficial to my health. That said, the giveaway is tempting to me, as it would help me to better gauge how active I truly am, and to make adjustments (as much as possible) to the amount and types of activity I am able to participate in. SO, first, I plan to shop at a closer grocery store, so that I can save on cab fare, and use the savings to increase the frequency of shopping trips and the amount of fresh fruits and veggies I need to eat healthier, while also being more active while shopping for these foods more frequently. Next, of course, I plan to take the time to prepare the fresh fruits and veggies, and to replace some of the quick, not as wholesome foods that I’ve been grabbing, to avoid moving much and exacerbating the pain I’m already feeling. Lastly, but just as importantly, I plan to begin going to bed and sleeping at a decent hour, and not get up and snack when pain wakes me several times during the night. Rest is every bit as important to good health as exercise and healthy diet, and I hope to gain much from this. My new year’s resolution of becoming more fit by summer should be easier, if I do each one of these as planned. 🙂

      I am a stroke survivor and have gotten very lazy and haven’t been keeping up with my recovery as well as I should. This year to reach my fitness & weight loss goals I have made the following goals:

      Rather than make my coffee and sit down at my computer as soon as I come downstairs I will do the following:

      I will ride my stationery bike for 15 minutes each morning.
      I will drink at least 8 ounces of water before, during and after riding my stationery bike.

      During the day, I will:

      Get up from my computer every hour and stretch and climb up & down the stairs at least twice then I will do my arm & shoulder exercises so I can get full use of my arm & shoulders again.

      Also, when the weather gets warmer again, I will start doing my early morning 1 mile walks. Because I am more sensitive to cold & heat since my stroke, I have to fit outside exercising into the time of year when the weather isn’t too hot or too cold.

      Lastly, again when the weather gets warmer again, I will go to the lake on the weekend with my dogs & take a hike.

I also planted lettuce in a new 2nd pot today so I can have more really fresh salads! (I’m a Florida dweller)

      2. I have been walking a half-mile 4 or 5 days a week, minimum. I intend to step that up to walking a mile each time.

      3. I intend to get down on my exercise mat and do my hip, back, and shoulder exercises every day. I’m leaving it right on the living room floor so I cannot forget to do it!

      Sensa does NOTHING. I sent it back.
