December Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Start of a new month and start of a new exercise challenge. How about getting some more new faces involved?

I started off things right. In the work gym @ 0440 for 33 minutes on treadmill, including 5k run in just under 29 minutes. Into the real gym tonight for upper body and a little more cardio.

LET'S GET IT ON!:thumbup:

I guess you could say mine is still in the spare tire area. Still have one, only now it is one of those "donut" ones you are only supposed to drive on for like 50 miles.:thumbup:

Okay, how does this exercise challenge work? I notice y'all are all doing different stuff! Please let me know, I had a good routine going and then came Thanksgiving and I got busy getting ready for that and all the things my son had going on at school. I'm ready to get back on track!

marthie, not so much as a challenge, but more accountability to each other. We come on here and post what we are doing day to day and week to week for exercise. Just a way of keeping up with the others.

Welcome and get ready for the fun.

Hey Warriors, :mellow:

I'm back in! I'm back at work after 2 weeks recovering from band surgery, and I'm down 24 lbs (14 post-band as of this morning). I've got a goal - I want to hit 230 lbs by January 1st. That's 11 from where I am right now, and since I'll be on mushies for 2 weeks, I think I can make it.

Walked with DH and DDog this morning (usual 1 mile), plus walked at work. Going to the gym tonight and will walk on the treadmill. First post-op appointment tomorrow morning with surgeon, so I'll know what I can do from that point. I know walking is good for me, but I REALLY miss the Iron... :thumbup:

Hoping to get the clearance to get back to lifting...designing a new free weight routine to hit my trouble spots and help me build muscle while I'm losing fat. My ultimate goal is not only to hit my goal weight, but NOT to need plastic surgery. Maybe that's a little ambitious, since I'm looking to lose more than 100 pounds, but I'm gonna have a great time trying! :)

Nice to be back in an Exercise Challenge thread!

Welcome back Ebony!

My dr. simply told me to wait 2 wks post surgery before I could start lifting again. Then, start off light and work my way up. No ab work for 4 wks though. Really didn't have a problem with that though:mellow:

I'm in and I need encouragement. Can't get my lazy duff on the treadmill before work in the morning. it's a real bummer for me because I used to be fit and buff. I am walking most days - just no schedule and discipline. OK, this is it, I'll report in everyday and tell you that I'm workin' it.

As promised, went in for upper body workout last night. 45 minutes, a little too much conversation at one point with one of the trainers about his upcoming MMA fight, and I was wrecked. Great workout. Since getting Protein supplements back into my daily routine, I have been on fire in the gym.

Unfortunately, I did not get to sleep until about 2330 last night. No way I was getting up at 0330 to do cardio this morning. In to the gym tonight for legs and I'll get some cardio in afterwards.

Gypsy Girl, just keep at it. Find some music or something to distract you while on the treadmill. If possible, put a tv in front of it and put in a movie or something. It helps.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
