January fitness challenge



Recommended Posts

Ok , here are my goals for January, upping my walking to 110 miles/month, going to go back to yoga class when it starts up, should get in another 10 classes this month, also going to strength training classes(will try not to complain so loudly about them!), I will also add in 30 min, 4x a week either on the eliptical or recumbent. I only got in 2 miles today, this bronchitis is kicking my butt, I'm sure that having asthma doesn't help, hopefully it will be gone soon. MTD-2 miles

Oh, Butter, you've got to be more careful, you will be running out of toes !

So I started my new year off right.....with a 6.5 mile trail run....and a broken pinkie toe. Yep....it's déjà vu all over again. I just broke a toe back in September and now another one. Tripped over a nasty root. The leaves on the trail this time of year cover up all the obstacles, making it precarious. Icing it right now....hoping I can get a shoe on tomorrow.

I'M BACKKKKK!!! I think I have finally beat the crud! It killed me on the last 2 weeks of the December Challenge. But I am ready for a new month and a new Challenge!

My goal for this month will be:

100 miles walked/biked

weight workout 3 days a week

Minimum of 2 trail hikes at the lake

Today I had a good workout using my garage sale find weight station. I worked out my biceps, triceps and chest. I did high reps with low weight.

I have also walked a total of 4.65 miles today. It has been a great day!

Butter, if there was a dislike option for this post about your injury, I would press it and bet a whole lot of other members would follow. Hope you recover soon.

I believe you were quoting redbean...she's pure Cajun. I'm a Texan too. Little blip on the radar called Tarkington Prairie.

You know what, I am so disappointed in the "results" from Insanity that I am rethinking my January challenge. 30 days in and if I stare really really hard at a photo I can maybe see a TINY change in my ribcage line from behind, otherwise no changes whatsoever - not on the scale, not in the clothes, not in pictures - nothing. Yes, I AM capable of doing SOME of the exercises more thoroughly now, but my balance has not improved.

My point is, is that I have committed in good faith and this program has not delivered. Plus all this cardio I think is actually shooting me in the foot for weight loss, I take in about 1000-1200 cals on Insanity days. What do you think Fiddle?

I'm thinking of dropping Insanity alltogether and just doing weights instead.

Globetrotter, I read some on insanity, but seems strange you're not seeing results. They do say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Do you think you may be overdoing it and not getting in enough nutrients or liquids?

Globe you're not giving it enough time to work. You can't expect to see results in 30 days. That's a pipe dream. Fitness is a lifetime pursuit and 30 days is hardly enough time to reshape your body.

Fiddle, on the contrary…I find this very helpful. While I was swimming the other day I was thinking specifically about how it might help my posture. Despite being a singer, my posture is (overall) piss poor and I have a kyphosis as well. Filing this all away.

Fluff,

I have to say, you are improving my vocabulary. I have had to look up a word in the dictionary at least twice this week to get the definition. I appreciate you helping me with brain fitness also.

Sigh. I'll try to dial it back.

In other news I am battling both a head cold and TOM right now and don't want to move or make anyone else sick. I've put back on 2-3 pounds of Water weight too. Sigh. I'll reevaluate as I get closer to my class time, but I am glad there are 31 days in January.

Okay, whining over.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      3. Arabesque

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
