    Anyone have recommendations for YouTube strength training? Looking for those I can do at home with hand weights and bands - thx!

    I started with the hasfit.com foundation program, then moved to their motive program. They're on Youtube, but if you go to their actual webpage and check out the programs, there's a nifty calendar you can follow along with, so you get variety without having to pick out videos yourself on youtube every day

    Week 1 - December
    Previous: 178.3
    Current: 177.9

    I have maintained pretty well during the holidays this year, which is more than I can say for years past! My goal is to be down a few pounds before Christmas gets here so I can start the New Year off right! Hopefully around 174

    Late walk after dinner.

    Busy work day from home.

    Date night tomorrow night with my wife of 28 years. Celebrate her continuing success. Also an excuse to wear some nice clothes out. Dinner and a movie planned.

    Weigh in week: Week 1
    Weigh in day: Wednesday
    Previous Week's Weight: (63.4kg) 139.8
    Todays Weight: (64.1kg) 141.3


    Within the acceptable fluctuations for me. Sure it will come back down in a day or two. Still eating and exercising to plan. just need more sleep.

    As coach, non-competitor in full maintenance and not trying to lose weight, I do not need to post a weight in. I do so anyway to set an example and show that I practice what I preach.

    Been a good boy the last few days. Extra weight from my weekend binge coming off quickly so that's cool. Kind of sucks that this could have been extra weight coming off instead of losing weight I gained back LOL if that makes any sense. oh well live and learn. This weekend I need to keep my butt at home and work on getting under 300

    @caitlynns727 - you're making progress through this holiday season. That's a win in itself - learning how to navigate these food-centric events is part of what's needed to be successful at maintaining your eventual goal weight. You got this! :smile:

    @kkmark -- Coach @craigo3154 was able to change your starting weight on the spreadsheet (thanks!). Now that you've found the home scale, use it for all your weigh-ins if you can -- not so much because of this challenge, but just so you can better monitor your own progress.

    There's a saying around here: same prize for last place as for first! :smile: Doesn't matter where we start, we're all trying to lose!

    Exercise: Yes
    Calories: No
    Tracked: Yes

    MFP has my calorie goal at 1310, and I'm personally trying to get around 1340, but I'm coming in at about 1500 in real life. Looking at the log, there are some treats I could have abstained from, and I had to estimate my major carb feast of the day - air-popped popcorn (and butter) while watching a movie with the little dudes. Should have had the protein drink instead, since I don't have to guesstimate as much.

    Anyway, my weight loss will tell over time whether I'm hitting the right deficit or not.

    Exercise: yes, finally a substantial hike (in the cold)
    Calories: yes
    Tracked: yes

    I'm still hanging in there. Making progress with the scheduling for my hubby's heart surgery, 2nd week in January with some tests being done here at home before we head to Utah. I have a huge sense of relief, my husband not so much. I'm glad we get to have the holidays without worrying about travel.
