  • Happy Tuesday. I am back after a year of stress, poor choices and finding out I have a heart condition. Over 3 years I lost 50 lbs... I have gained about 10-12 of those back and I AM GOING to lose them again. Today was the start of week 3 of ORANGE THEORY. LOVE THE PROGRAM. Try to start it over 2 months ago and the program…
  • New to OT. Finished my third workout of my first week. LOVE IT!!! Hoping this gets me where I want to be. Started my fitness journey 6 years ago. Lost 50 lbs and now up about 8 of those.... goal is to get those 8 off.... loosing fat and gaining muscle. Want to be strong and lean!
  • Scale hasn't moved much in the last 2 months and part of that is my eating issues on the weekend, but I know I have put on muscle and I pulled out a lot of my spring clothes and most fit well. Next week meeting with nutritionist to get help fueling for training and at the same time leaning out. Today started using a new…
  • Aliem.... I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. You take care of you and the little peanut! That is the most important. I was back and forth last week..... wasn't feeling well physically and mentally but back at it this week. Trying a new sleep schedule.... trying to get better sleep (no tv, iphone etc) and that hard for…
  • Not feeling well today.. so REST day it is! Happy Valentines day! Hope everyone is well.
  • Heading to the gym in a few mins.... and ready to start my week off right. Full week of workout planned with one rest day and fingers crossed for some seriously healthy eating. Great trip to the grocery and the frig is stocked with good stuff. Adding in to my mini morning workout so it is now the following. (Gym in the…
  • Finally got on the scale after some bad eating before Disney, during and after. It was ugly. But after a month of training I know i have put on some muscle. Now time to lean out. Today is day two of paleo....
  • Aliem - Got to love that second trimester. So glad you want to eat again! That is so awesome. You have a little one to grow in there so fuel up mamma! Norm - How are you doing?

  • Hey guys.... longer response later on today. But just wanted to say I am back from my trip and today is officially 2 months until my spartan race. Updated my workout schedule with mini morning workouts every morning and started paleo eating plan today as well.
  • Hey guys sorry I have been MIA... had a little bit of a pity party over here for about a week but have been keeping a semi consistent workout schedule... not food terrible. I am out of town this week and when I return I have decided to go PALEO for the 2 months prior to my race. I think it will be good for my training, my…
  • Long day at work with some pretty bad work news. I shed a tear or two but currently there is not much I can do to fix the situation. My old coping mechanism was to EAT my sadness and frustration. But I am trying to be better. Went to the gym, gave body pump all I had, then home for a reasonable dinner and a small handful…
  • Norm....great job on the weight loss and dedication this week. To answer your question....Body combat in one of the classes in the LES MILLS series. They have bodypump (which I take religiously twice a week), body combat (which I really like but the schedule for this class is tough for me), body flow which I use to take…
  • TGIF.... Norm.... welcome to the group! And I promise I am not "out of your league". I am still learning every day! My fitness journey started 4 years ago and I am always trying new things and tweaking. Still haven't been able to lose that last ten and get my fitness level where I want it. 2017 is the year!!! Rinde - I am…

  • This is definitely me! I want to lose 12 lbs to reach my goal! Currently training for my first Spartain Race in April. I was 180ish at my highest and lost 54 lbs. But I am back up to 134 after the holidays and some other things. Trying to get myself to a strong and LEAN 122. I vowed not to go back to the "old and unhappy…

Food was a little over priced but it was healthy and fresh prepared per order! Now at work. Tomorrow.....another early morning workout at the gym.... ELLIPTICAL and…

  • Aliem: congratulations on the wedding and the BABY.... I missed so much!!!! Best wishes on all fronts. Both of my sister had morning sickness issues. One kept saltines in her desk at work, the other could be around raw chicken without losing it. You are doing amazing with all the things you have going on. Glad you loved…

  • Ok guys.. I am so sorry for creating this group and then checking out. LIFE has been kicking my butt and I didnt handle it so well. I just can't do everything and I always think I can. I am now fully healthy and ready to come back with tempered goals because I know with work, family and holidays I cant be 100% into my…
  • Hey guys.... Illness had me down for the count since Saturday. Strep getting better but side effects of the antibiotics have me struggling. Still have 3 more days to go hoping my body feels back to normal next week. Rinde- that rash sounds miserable. How are you feeling? Aliem- omg congrats on 128 that is so awesome. I am…
  • Guys today was the big party for the 5th anniversary of the store..Tuesday was planning on starting back at the gym and get myself motivated again. But woke up at 3am with a nasty Sore throats, fever and body fatigue and body ache. I went to my folks at 7:30 on a Saturday for my dad the doctor to confirm what I knew.... I…
  • Guys I am messaging from a holiday market I am here today and tomorrow. No workouts but loading unloading merch and standing all day. Hoping for a good weigh in tomorrow or Saturday. Aliem - I was at 130 again today too. Fingers crossed we get below soon. Rinde- you are amazing and I am so with your trainer. Strength…
  • Quick post from my phone.... longer one later today. Just got on the scale for first time in two weeks... actually 130. So I didn't gain a ton of weight in the last two weeks and I think I should be back in 120's by the end of the week. Perhaps 127 or 128 isn't totally out of the question for the challenge.
