    Challenge : 8k steps a day/ 224k for the month of February

    I think this will keep me moving and not stuck on the coach.

    2/1- 8196 steps. Went great yesterday! I was under 7k at 6pm and I got up and danced around my house until I got to 8k 💃🏾

    Welcome Vanessa! You have surmounted so much - you will inspire anyone on this team who is facing tough stuff and getting through it.

    Can I add you to our stepping team? With you on it were stand a chance against the other teams! Just post your steps here and I'll put them in the spreadsheet.

    So we post our steps here now, as well as weight on your designated day. Instead of quoting and telling you I have posted your information to the spreadsheet I'll just hit "insightful" when it's done.

    Thanks!

    You're ON! We start recording tomorrow. Post daily or put a few days together if you don't have time to do it every day. As long as all the steps for the week are in on Saturdays so we can see which team stepped over the others!

    Your daily calorie burn, or TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) is composed of your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate, the amount you'd burn in a coma) + NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, your job and chores and such) + TEF (Thermic Effect of Food, calories burned processing food eaten) + EAT (Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, your separately- accounted intentional exercise).

    One way to increase calories expended (fairly) painlessly is to increase NEAT calories. This link takes you to a MFP discussion topic where people share their suggestions for increasing NEAT.

    It starts tomorrow (Feb. 3) and goes through March 2. In F2F I have finally learned that all weeks start on Sunday and there is sometimes a bit of overlap between months!

    Your command of the acronyms is impressive! And the information is always useful. Thanks!

    It was so I teresting to read the different ways to increase NEAT (this is the first I read of this at all actually) so I am excited to find my own ways to increase this number of calories burned daily. Starting with what I already do

    Get at least 10,000 steps daily
    Move every hours (min 250 steps per hour)
    Climb 10 flights of stairs daily
    Walk to my sons school instead of driving (weather depending)
    Park at the end of the parking lot
    Vacuum house everyday (dog fur man)
    Go down each isle at the store from one end to another (withoutbthe need to buy something in each isle lol)

    Any other ideas to add daily team?

    Hi everyone ... sorry I have been MIA. Here is my intro. My name is keerti and I am 38 years old and this is my first time with this group. I am in US and have two sweet kids 11 and 5 who motivates me in everything I want to do and so is my sweet husband.i have done MfP before and lost like 20lbs after my first pregnancy. But I am trying to shed this weight for 5 years after my second but it is kind stuck on me this time. I was fairly active and was doing 30k steps but with holidays bad cold weather stopped walking. So the weight is back on. My weight loss tends to be very very slow and when I begin exercising it goes up for sometime. My negative is that I eat too much carb and can’t get away with sugar and dairy. So here is my personal goal.

    Name:
    Your Personal Challenge:
    **walk 10k steps each weekday
    **Weight train 3x week
    ** log in MFP everyday and keep below cals. Add more protein to diet
    Date – started 2/2- 10k steps and weight train for half hour

    This is hard for me right now because I am trying to get back to doing all these and failing from last month. Hope to be back on track this month.

    My long term goal is to loose 20lbs by June for my daughter’s birthday and wearing matching dress with her on her birthday.

    @mari_moulin if there is space please add me to step challenge.

    My Current weight is 190lbs
    Goal weight for feb is - 185lbs


    Finally so glad to be here and have all this support and motivation. Hope to give it back but might be tricky for few days as this is my first time in this group and trying to get hang of it all.

    Weigh In Day: Sunday
    Previous Weight: 170.4
    Current Weight: 169.9

    My recovery is going well. Pain is gone. Still can't walk for distance yet, but hope to soon!

    Thanks for your support!

    I don't have a fitness goal for February (yet).
    But I plan to take 2-4 pounds off through upping my NEAT (thanks for the post) and CICO careful tracking.
    Also shooting for 1/2-1 inch off my waist.

    I am so happy to hear you are recovering well Andrea. I do hope it goes quickly and that you are soon feeling yourself again. I think upping your NEAT calories burned will be of great help along with CICO to reach your weight goals this month. I am also going to focus a bit more on my NEAT calories.
