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.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
