  • You should be called: Kayleigh :smiley:
    You are from (Timezone): CST
    Your weigh in day: Friday!!!
    Favorite exercise: I really like anything arms, but I'm still finding my absolutely favorite.
    Favorite healthy food: <3 frozen grapes!
    Struggling Areas (night snacking/lack of motivation/ junk food etc): I tend to get hungry when I stay up later than about 9, which is pretty normal for me. But that's when I have some frozen grapes or some string cheese :)
    Do you want to be the team motivator? (Yes/No): Yes! :#:#
    Goal for the week: My goal this week is to participate in both of the challenges I am in and stay focused on my goals for health and fitness.
    Goal for the challenge (35 days): Over the next 35 days I would like to lose another 5lbs. I think this is entirely possible, but I am still really trying to see how my body reacts to things. I have lost the first 10lbs, much quicker than I ever thought possible.
    First Day Side Challenge >> Post your starting measurements: I'll have to get my measurements later as it is not the easiest to do alone, and the bf is still asleep :)

    Good luck to everyone over the next 35 days. I can't wait to see how active this group is. I already forewarned my office mates at work that I would be doing jumping jacks randomly at my desk on Thursdays so they should be prepared for some strange things out of me :smiley:

    If there is anything I can help anyone with, please let me know. I am still pretty new to actually being committed to weight loss, but my commitment is real for the first time, and because of that I am truly seeing results.

    good morning everyone -
    did not go to my regular monday morning yoga class...trying to get my mortgage refinanced and ran into a snag. This is going to be a good thing, since I will go to the gym later and get a more intense workout in!

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    HI Tania, Arieyona, Sam, Kayleigh, Karen, Dawn, Nightwatcher Happykee and Pichu!

    @night_watcher I just started running just over a month ago with the C25K app. My tongue used to swell during the 60 second runs! I honestly thought I was allergic to running when I started lol. If you can get past week one you can do the rest of it. Also I use the term run quite loosely....I hobble quickly lol.

    Good morning lcuconley and Kayleigh!

    I would love to post a picture of my healthy breakfast, but I don't know if anyone will drool or be in awe over me eating soylent lol

    I had my regular breakfast today :smile: I love it because I can take it to work with me and have it there. I find if I eat to early then I get hungry by 9:00, so this time I can last until snack time (I'm a Kindergarten teacher and we all get a snack at 10:15 :smile: ).

    So, I had a smoothie, with a banana, one cup of almond milk, 1 T almond butter a scoop of chocolate lean whey protein powder and lots of ice.
