    Iโ€™m trying to live by the philosophy that, there is no such thing as bad
    weather, only bad clothing. So even though it was 12ยฐ this morning and snowing, I got up when my alarm went off at 4:45 and ran 4.6 miles. Just needed extra layers, lol.



    @katevt78 Ha!!! I love your attitude!!!!

    ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Getting to know each other! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    1. What's one thing that can instantly make your day better? Gardening or a long walk in the countryside!
    2. What's your favorite season and why? Spring. It is getting lighter and warmer and everything in the garden is starting to come back to life
    3. Is there any product that you couldn't live without? I am not very materialistic so could 'live without' most products really
    4. What are your hobbies, and how did you get into them? Growing my own vegetables (as you can probably tell from the rest of my responses!)
    5. What is your most prized possession? I don't own anything that is worth very much financially. All of my photographs are safely stored online and are very valuable to me

    ๐ŸŽฏ Goals ๐ŸŽฏ

    6. Did you meet your first week goals? Are you on schedule to meet your January goals? Yes to both I think!
    7. What can we do as a team to better support you to achieve your goals? I am confused about how the points system works but probably just need to do some more reading and get my head around it myself! Reading other peoples posts is very inspiring and motivating!

    ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Fitness ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ

    8. How do you feel about your fitness in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs? I am focusing on steps as I have a hip injury which makes it difficult for me to do very much strength training wise (I am waiting to see a Physiotherapist whom I am hoping will be able to advise me on what it is safe for me to do). I have not been meeting my targets but have only just got my Fitbit so will at least be tracking my steps more accurately from now on!

    ๐Ÿด Nutrition ๐Ÿด

    8. How do you feel about your nutrition in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs?
    ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ“๐ŸŠ๐Ÿฅ• I'm very pleased with my nutrition, I eat a lot of vegetables anyway but have been tracking
    100% for the past two weeks which is a triumph for me as a serial fall-off-the-wagoner!

    @1982Josie I love to garden, however, since I have now moved to the desert, its a bit challenging.. Awesome job! I will send you a PM and explain the point system. As always, if you have any questions, please donโ€™t hesitate to ask! Yay, I LOVE MY FITBIT!
    Week 2: Challenge
    1. What's one thing that can instantly make your day better? Coffee
    2. What's your favorite season and why? summer I love to camp and fish
    3. Is there any product that you couldn't live without?
    4. What are your hobbies, and how did you get into them? I like to make models and puzzles I got back in to both when I got both my knees replaced
    5. What is your most prized possession? Photos of family and friends
    6. Did you meet your first week goals? Are you on schedule to meet your January goals? Yes I did and am on track to meet goals
    7. What can we do as a team to better support you to achieve your goals? All is good!
    8. How do you feel about your fitness in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs? I'm motivated and getting it done
    9. How do you feel about your nutrition in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs? I start planning meals and that makes it a lot easier

    Goals for the week:
    Daily bible study
    Eat less than 1700 calories per day
    Drink 96 oz of water daily
    Exercise for 60 minutes per day (Mon โ€“ Sat)
    Walk 45 mins a day

    Weekly goal is to lose at least 1.5 lb weekly
    January monthly total of at least 4.5 lbs

    @Digger61 Yes, to coffee!!!! I love your attitude!!!! I am motivated and getting it done!! Great job on your goals!!
    Week 2 Goals Update:
    1. All exercises and challenges completed plus 37 minutes of aggressive elliptical at the gym.
    2. Tons of veggies and 2 servings of fruit. My protein probably wasn't great...ugh. I might be forced to do some tracking to keep on top of it. I am only aiming for 50g and it is still so difficult for me. I am still dealing with sugar cravings for some mysterious reason and have been really drinking coffee and chewing gum to excess to deal with it.
    3. Snow day today so I didn't have to get up when the alarm went off! All good with my routines.
    4.Weigh Ins: S 106, M 106.8

    1. Fitness: 15 push ups/90 second plank/25 squats/1 minute wall sit twice a day; Ironheart Challenge; Butt Lift Challenge; cardio at gym at least M/W/TH after work, gym or at home video workout remaining days.
    2. Nutrition: Continue with plant/whole foods centered diet with no prepared/processed/packaged foods. Eat with serving size and calorie awareness, but no tracking or calorie counting. Eat two servings of fruit each day. Take adequate food to work so I don't go all day without eating. Try to have at least one meal a day that is high in protein.
    3. Get up when my alarm goes off--immediately! Follow morning and bedtime routines.
    4. Weigh in daily and maintain weight under 110.

    3 Expert-Backed Tips To Support Healthy Circulation On A Daily Basis
    "...the very vital job of the heart is to pump (aka circulate) blood and oxygen throughout the body. When you're sitting for prolonged periods of time, whole-body blood flow isn't optimal. Over time, this can affect cardiovascular health outcomes, but it doesn't mean you're doomed if you work a desk job.
    Thankfully, there are plenty of easy-to-adopt habits to sprinkle into your day for better blood flow..."

    @BodyTalking Great info!
    ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Getting to know each other! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    1. What's one thing that can instantly make your day better? Sunshine
    2. What's your favorite season and why? Summer, I love the hot days and warm nights!
    3. Is there any product that you couldn't live without? Shampoo, my hair is super oily!
    4. What are your hobbies, and how did you get into them? I have a variety of hobbies. Recently I'm into shelling on the beach and making artistic things from them. I do decoupaged shells, but more recently I am trying my hand at polymer clay objects in seashells, like mermaids and octopus. Also with epoxy objects within the shell. This is new for me and I hope by March I can begin selling these like I did my decoupaged shells. I'll share a picture when I have perfected it a little more!
    5. What is your most prized possession? Not really into objects, my family is my most prized love.

    I am noticing a lot of us love our coffee! My work place no longer uses our large coffee pots, so I am not drinking coffee all day. This is what I make instead of a second or third coffee:

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Getting to know each other! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    1. What's one thing that can instantly make your day better?
    One of my dogs curling up in my lap
    2. What's your favorite season and why?
    Fall - love the colors and the crisp morning air
    3. Is there any product that you couldn't live without?
    Chapstick! Iโ€™m addicted.
    4. What are your hobbies, and how did you get into them?
    Running - started as a fundraiser to raise money for my daughterโ€™s disorder and I discovered I loved it. Also reading - Iโ€™ve always been a reader but really picked it up last year when my friend said she read 75 books so I wanted to try to read more than my usual 12 or so. I set a goal of 36 books last year and ended up reading 85!
    5. What is your most prized possession?
    I canโ€™t really think of anything Iโ€™d consider a prized possession. Although I have a cocktail glass from my first half marathon and my brother likes to jokingly use it and nearly break it every time he comes over because he knows it irritates me and the glass was EARNED by me so I hid it. I guess itโ€™s kind of a prized possession ;)

    ๐ŸŽฏ Goals ๐ŸŽฏ

    6. Did you meet your first week goals? Are you on schedule to meet your January goals?
    I mostly met my first week goals of intermittent fasting, tracking everything and paying attention to macros. We had an event Saturday and I drank too much which led to a poor night of sleep which led me to overeat Sunday so I started the week well but didnโ€™t end it well. Going on a trip this weekend so my January goals will be hard to meet.

    7. What can we do as a team to better support you to achieve your goals?
    I canโ€™t think of anything!

    ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Fitness ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ

    8. How do you feel about your fitness in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs?
    Fitness was great! I felt really good in my workouts, sometimes if I donโ€™t eat enough or eat enough of the right things my workouts suffer. I am already at 1000 minutes of Peloton workouts and not even halfway through the month!

    ๐Ÿด Nutrition ๐Ÿด

    8. How do you feel about your nutrition in WEEK ONE 2022? Struggles? Triumphs?
    I was definitely better but I think after this trip Iโ€™m taking this weekend Iโ€™m going to cut out sugar and probably alcohol for a month. I just keep reaching for the wrong kind of snack and need to stop it. Iโ€™m going on another trip in 5 weeks and Iโ€™d like to lose a bit before it!

    Iโ€™m trying to live by the philosophy that, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. So even though it was 12ยฐ this morning and snowing, I got up when my alarm went off at 4:45 and ran 4.6 miles. Just needed extra layers, lol.

    That is great! Iโ€™m too afraid to go running in the dark because Iโ€™m afraid Iโ€™ll slip on ice. I almost went down last week because I didnโ€™t see the ice under the snow!

    Last year I made it a goal to get outside for 30 minutes/day no matter the weather and I stuck to it until it got well below 0 for a few days in a row. This year Iโ€™ve been wimping out on the below 0 days but yesterday made it out for a short walk, although my face felt like it was going to freeze off.

    I am noticing a lot of us love our coffee! My work place no longer uses our large coffee pots, so I am not drinking coffee all day. This is what I make instead of a second or third coffee:

    I just prep it at home and take it in a travel mug that lasts me until lunch.

    Looks interesting! Can it just be prepared with water alone?
