Well the year hasnt started out the best seeing as I've just now recovered from my hangover! I have started drinking water though, and eaten mostly salad and fruit today, which was a nice change from the normal hangover remedy of greasy junk food!

BUT there is a slew of guided meditations on filesharing programs, so many are really hilarious, like this guy who did these ' new age / hynosis porn'

Hypnosis Porn?



I'm going to start walking in the mornings, because it gets lighter (and hotter) earlier - which makes it a lot easier to get out of bed!

just got back a little while ago from the ages i spent in the airport and haven't eaten that well (two packs of easy mac) however considering I hadn't eaten in over 12 hours i'll let it go. I've d/led pilates off the internet before which is a nice alternative to buying the things themselves.

I'm actually downloading some at the moment off Kazaa Lite. I'd like to lose about 10-12lbs. Went to the gym today, and had a veggie burger and salad for dinner, but now I'm going to have a couple beer . More gym tomorrow and a pilates video.

Ooooooooooh, we're off and running!

I am going to lose 25 pounds and get much more fit this year. I've decided to go back to Weight Watchers, beginning again next Tuesday. I lost 20 pounds with them and slowly, mostly for medical reasons, regained it all again.

Here's my plan for the time being. Drink at least 6 glasses of water every day. Eat more protein and veggies and watch carbs that are not whole grain. Walk much more!!! I have a treadmill in the house and I need to reorganize one room so I can open it again. Once the Christmas tree is down (after Epiphany) I can move a chair out of our bedroom which will give me more room for floor exercise and weights.

Feel free to post your goals, ask for help, challenge me, hold me accountable, or whatever else you think will be helpful to me and to the group! As I said to my husband, this time I WILL lose the weight permanently because I'm not going to be on a "diet" but instead make permanent changes to the way I eat and exercise which will be with me for life!

I've been doing the Atkins for the past several days. I didn't weight myself but I felt the lose in my pants; I'd say about 3 or 4.

Today I couldn't take it anymore. I think I have the flu so I took a break from the diet and had a full meal including a big dessert.

Tomorrow I'm going to the gym. I'm going to do mostly cardio only because I don't want to work the muscle too much until I get a back massage.

I don't want to loose any weight. I just want to replace fat with muscle because "you must live your life like you'll die tomorrow, but you must treat your body like you'll live forever".

Yeah I d/led the pilates off Kazaa Lite. i was going to go the gym today but had a really long nap and didn't get the stuff done I wanted to. it's funny being in the cafeteria and looking at all the girls plates because you can see people trying to keep new years resolutions. Like tealady, i'm just trying to eliminate carbs and eat healthier in general and exercize more. Tealady it sounds like you have everything planned out! I'm just trying to go day by day over here.

I'm the same way tealady. I just want to eat healthier in general, and stick to my workout plan. I don't need a huge adjustment, just a bit of a change.

well- I have been sick for about 2 weeks now so the exercise part hasn't started. I have made an effort to eat healthier-less fat, less carbs, lots of water. As soon as I get to feeling better I will start with the walking, dance classes(hopefully), or aerobics. I am so glad that this group is here-I have to report to someone regularly to stick with this! Good luck everyone!

I love that quote!

And I agree about not being on a 'diet' as much as changing my lifestyle. Thats what I'm aiming for - a healthier outlook, body and mind for this new year, and many years to come!
