OK The Bee Here - I started of the year at 185.5 and weighed in last monday at 183.5. YAY. -2. But this week weigh in was 184. Time to adjust food intake!

Goals- Not trying to drastically reduce intake, but want to be more mindful. I need to adopt a healthier lifestyle to support a sexier Sue and the Triathlete in training. So Goals:
Try oatmeal for breakfast when not running.
1) Drink more water!
2) Eat more at Subway that way I know the calories and quantities.
3) Stick to Half Ironman Training this week: Week 3
Mon: Swim 60 lengths and Ride Bike outside
Tues:Swim 75 lengths and Run 5.5 miles
Wed: Ride 25 miles
Thursday:Swim 80 lengths and Run 4.75 miles
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Long Bike 60 miles - May need to change this -a s last week only rode long ride or first ride outside in a long time 25.
Sunday: Long Run 7+Miles (LASt week was supposed to run 6.5 and actually rans 7.6)

337 lbs. this morning. I caught a stomach bug last Tuesday and am just now fully recovering, so I missed most of my workouts last week, but I did take a long walk and a 13 miles bike ride over the weekend, so I stayed active.

Goals this week:

3 days strength training
3 days cardio
2 days yoga/stretching
Clean eats all week.

I'm still on track to be at 330 by month-end.

227 this morning.

I may not see much weight loss this coming week: the surgeon says "no strenuous exercise", but this is the week I get to add soft/mushy foods to my diet. (Last two weeks have been liquid only).

I did manage to walk a bit every day last week. Goal for this week is to go back to work and not get over-tired.

I'm back!

Didn't get below a stubborn 94kg last year, but down at 93kg this week and hoping to hold it.

Have given up beer and coke (and most soda) until at least March (indoor rowing champs).

O.K.

I signed in on 01/15 @ 210.0 lbs. I managed to ride 23 mi. all indoors on the Airdyne, ate a bit better, and weighed in this morning @ 207.8 for a loss of 2.2 lbs.

Next week----more miles, six days of wise eating habits

246.5 today, down 2 from last Monday. That is my 4th straight week of losing weight - 8.5 pounds down since I started Dec 21st. I biked only twice last week outside (17.9 miles total) and didn't get on the trainer at all.

Goals this week: Continue day by day watching the food intake, try to get more riding and exercise in during the week.

258 again this morning = 0 pounds lost last week. I did manage to ride to work 2 days and spin a while at the gym, so I'm not discouraged.
This week's goal: Watch the calorie intake, lose 2 pounds, ride to work at least twice(rainy week ahead!).

Last week I was at 213.5, today I'm at 212.0 so that's down 1.5. I succeeded in using FitDay every day. Unfortunately, I have this cold that won't let go so I haven't been riding all week. I did do some short workouts with resistance bands.

Goals for the week...continue with FitDay and ride some, even if it's on the trainer inside.

The scale did not budge... I am angry. Grrr.

My goals
1) Drink water (even though I'm sick of looking for washrooms when I'm out doing errands)
a) carry a supply of toilet paper and hand sanitizer because some washrooms scare me and have no paper
2) Measure my food out. I'm thinking I'm confusing a bowl full of pasta as a single serving. Very bad.
3) Climb those stairs! Ug. It's awful some days but I do it. Looks like I need to up the number of floors I do. Last week I climbed 10 flights a day so I'm now doing 2 sets of 10 flights a day (I'm soon gonna run out
of floors)
4) Record what I eat, drink and keep track of exercising

On a positive note: I rode twice this weekend. Neither were very long rides -- Saturday I rode 11 km and Sunday I rode 13.5. It felt great to be on my bike. Hopefully I'll get more rides in this winter. It's a lot more fun than climbing stairs, I tell ya.

228 lbs. This morning... This is my first week in for the Biggest Loser 2010!! Down 2 lbs. this week. I didn't have a great week goal wise but kept the food pretty much better other than this weekend. I forgot when I posted last week that my anniversary was this Friday and the wife ad I went out for a great meal and some drinks. I am however giving up alcohol for 30 days not that I drink much but on the weekends I tend to which leads to bad food decisions so I am going to give this a try! I am ready to get this weight off in 2010!
Goals:
1) 96 oz. of water a day
2) Keep calories in 1800-2000 calorie range
3) No eating out at all
4) Get outside and ride 3 days this week - 3 P90X workouts...

Hopefully if I do that I will see positive results on Monday!

It's basically telling you what to eat and how much, no sugar, low fat, lots of protien, tons of greens, even startches and breads. Basically think like this, if your great grandparents wouldn't recognize what you are eating as food... it's likely no good for you. I'm not going to preach it as it goes against my values. I've always said just be carefull as to how much junk you eat and it'll be fine, well I've seen my sisters transformed over the last two years and the results can't be denied. Google eatclean.

I actually managed to lose about 4 pounds this week, which was very nice. I only managed to ride the trainer once, though I did get to Mountain bike once and got in a bit of a road ride on Saturday. All in all a good week.

This week, I want to get at least 5 rides in, be it on the trainer or one the trails/Road.

My goals this week:
1) DON'T SMOKE!!!!!! (That's the Biggie)
2) Go to the Gym at least 4 times (Already went Monday, so that's one down)
3) Get some form of outdoor exercise (Either walking with SWMBO or riding in the cold)
4) Eat as healthy as possible

Same goals as last week.

I'm happy to say that I have not had a cigarette since Thursday morning. Almost a full week in. At this point I am still having some decent cravings, but I don't really let them bother me because I know that I am over the hump. No reason to waste all the work that I've put in so far.

Still not going to weigh this week, but I will start the weight loss next week, since hopefully the cravings will be gone by then.

Good luck everyone, have a great week.
