40 Day Challenge!

Butterfly_CurlzButterfly_Curlz Posts: 955Registered Users
So, I know there are alot of us out there who are not sticking to our healthy living goals (exercising more, eating right, drinking more water,etc) therefore I thought it would be fun to do a 40 day challenge where whatever our healthy goal is we have to commit to getting it done for the next 40 days & we can post our struggles/progress w/each other. No strict rules...just commit, post your goals & how you are doing at least once a week. Hope everyone will join!

Goal: Get back to exercising no less than 5 days a week, drink my green tea each morning, give up red meat & pork & up my water intake!

Challenge starts 7/5/2011:hello2:

    I am so in. I am documenting my weightloss journey on youtube, so I don't fail. My goals are to stick to my diet, exercise everyday, and stay positive no matter what.

    I'm in. I will exercise 5 days a week, pure foods, nothing processed to include breads, pasta and table sugar. I will increase my water intake also. Thank you so much.

    I think I will add that one to my goals as well. I have been going thru a rough patch w/my child's father lately which includes me just having left court today. So its been hard to stay positive in spite of it all but I am pressing on!

    Good luck to both of you ladies. I know we can all reach our goals!

    I am a day late, but I'd like to join. I got on the scale today and saw that I have gained back 22 of the 35 pounds that I had lost. It is so hard when the hubs still looks at me like I just stepped out of the sport's illustrated swim suit issue. :)

    Anyway, I need to walk 5 days a week, drink lots of water, and stop eating after dinner.

    But thats the wonderful part! Who doesn't want someone who loves them thru thick & thin (literally) LOL! I do understand though. I will get in a routine & be good at it & then fall off & then when I weigh myself again finally I'm like oh no! But thats the point of this thread ...to commit to getting it done which I know we will all do!

    I do have a confession tho...sadly I did only half of my goals yesterday (water & tea)...no exercise & I ate pork!...I was crazy busy yesterday & starving! Thats the only reason I ate it bc it was available but thats no excuse!

    If I'm gonna do it I should do it all the way. No excuses! I did however go to the grocery store & stock up on more water & fruits today. I had my green tea this morning & am sipping water as I type. I plan on doing my workout dvd when my son takes a nap.

    I completely understand that. Everyone could be telling me I look good but if I don't feel it, it doesn't matter. In that respect you have to do what makes you happy despite what friends, family or even hubby has to say about it. So if your feeling down find a way to change it!

    Yes to your last question. I believe not just as women but people in general we all feel a little 'off' some days... I know I do. I am generally a relatively confident person but I do have my moments like anyone else. I just try to give myself a mental check...am I feeling down bc of this or that & once I try to figure out where the feeling came from I try to remind myself of all my lovely qualities:angel9: & then I do something that makes me feel good (pedicure, exercise, long shower/bath,etc.).

    I'm in (2 days late, but I've been working on these lately). I think the accountability is so helpful! I'm on a super healthy diet lately to try and see if I can figure out if any foods trigger or exacerbate some health issues I have. I've been doing good with the diet but not the other healthy things I need to work on (trying to lose 10 pounds I gained! ugh...)

    So, my goals: continue my diet/start trying to figure out trigger foods, drink 8 glasses of water a day with 1-2 of them being green tea, and do at least 30 minutes of elliptical or yoga 5 days a week.

    Not doing great today, though. Diet was good, but not enough water today and I was going to do yoga after work but have felt nauseous since I got home :-/ I am going to go drink a cup of water, make a cup of green tea, and hopefully I'll feel better and can do a few minutes of yoga before bed.

    I'm in! My plan is to exercise 5-6 days a week (spinning, elliptical, weight train, other assorted cardio), to drink more water and to eat more veggies and fruit and less carbs.

    Does anyone use an app to document food intake and exercise? I started but feel no motivation to use them. :l

    My SIL had given me the name of an online site that lets you see all the calories of restaurant/fast food meals as well as an exercise log. I will ask her in the am for them again & post.

    I do however like the idea of doing a food diary. At first I was like oh no but when I actually did it & I had a 'bad day' it really helped to see every little thing I put into my mouth...I can always justify that cookie I had and brush it off but you can't argue w/something written in black & white! Plus that bit of guilt I had after eating it along w/having to see the reality of my bad choices made me eat better. I have since stopped but will start again tomorrow.

    Like I stated above, the food diary really helps (I even write down what I drink...its amazing how many calories we take in each day just from drinking alone), trying to keep readily available healthy food choices well stocked (already cut fruit/veggies so when I want something I don't have to chop it up. Its already ready to eat, yogurt, special K bars,etc) & not even buying the junk, taking pictures of myself in an outfit I really wanna look hot in & looking at it everyday (sometimes twice a day if I'm tempted to eat something I shouldn't), buying a really cute outfit in a size smaller than I can wear & hanging it where I can see it everyday, posting a picture of myself when I was hot (lol) & have it where I can easily see it & finally weighing myself everyday or no less than every couple of days...seeing if my weight is fluctuating too much helps me stay focused & change any bad habits before my weight gets outa control.

    Welcome everyone! After re-reading my last post I realized I know and have all the tools I need to succeed, however I'm just not utilizing them.

    So I just pulled out my new cute mini notebook I purchased from Staples the other week and starting putting together the beginnings of a food diary, weight & measurement log. I will weigh & take my measurements every Friday & Tuesday, will write down my food & drink intake everyday in addition to my previously stated goals.

    I'm doing kinda good on my og goals...water intake YES, green tea YES, no pork or red meat YES...exercise NO. I've been sooo crazy busy btwn going back & forth to court lately that by the time I get home the last thing I wanna do is workout. However in order to stay w/my 5 day a week goal I have to exercise everyday for the remainder of the week. I will get this done!

    I so in! I love the ideal. I'm usually a very committed person, but I've recently graduated from undergrad. And let's just say that the job search has taken a toll on me.

    I'm so ready to lose the 60 lbs. that I gain during undergrad and plus more. It's so great to have ppl to motivate you.

    Goals:
    -Drinking at least 80 oz of water a day.
    -Being active at least twice a day (cross training)
    -Making healthier food choices
    -Making daily logos on fitday

    So I did my weigh in & measurements today...lets just say I'm not too happy w/the numbers:pale:. I did have my green tea, I am drinking water as I type, I took my vitamins & I'm going to do my belly dance dvd later.

    Water intake was better today than yesterday and I haven't had as much starch.

    My immediate motivation is just looking better as far as exercising is concerned. LOL. My long-term motivation is health related, though. I have a family history of certain illnesses that I'd like to prevent. Also, one of my sisters is on high cholesterol meds and just found out she has RA. It was my wake up call and a reminder that my body reacts differently now that I'm older.

    I'm still trying to find my daily motivation. :p

    My short-term motivation is to look better and bc my pants are all a bit tight! :sad8: Tight clothes are a huge motivator and I refuse to go buy bigger pants. Long-term is definitely health and feeling good and getting into good habits while I'm young (mid-20's) before I add kids, house, etc that all make life more busy.

    Did good yesterday. Great on the food-front, at least 6 cups of water and 2 of green tea, and 35 minutes of yoga in the morning. Eating good today and plenty of water. I've been cleaning all morning which I'm considering my exercise (and I'm not done yet, boo) and I'll have some tea later when I finally get a chance to relax.

    Back to the busy Saturday. Keep up the good work everyone! You can do it! :toothy8:

    Ok...so today was a bust. I was doing good until my family decided they wanted to go out to a buffet since my mom is having surgery Monday. I mean I didn't go crazy but I did have a good amount quantity wise.

    I ate ALOT of spinach (which is a plus), plus grilled fish (which was fab btw), however I also had chicken wings, pizza & a few hush puppies...oh the carbs! Oh well...whats done is done, I will just drink a butt load of water for the rest of the night & get my butt bk in gear tomorrow. When you fall off you get back on right?!

    Accountability:my first week not great at all! I'm in a different environment as far as work and highly stressed so needless to say I barely exercised this week, or stayed hydrated or ate much for that matter. I have managed to lose two pounds but its only because me lack me calories and I only exercised twice this past week. So I am starting off better this week and I am fully hydrated and have exercised twice already! Thanks. Hope everyone have a wonderful week!

    Hello everyone! So my week was kinda blah too. I've been bk & forth to court & the sheriff's office constantly this past week for domestic issues, so needless to say I've been stressed alot.

    I've done well on my water & tea, so so on the no pork & red meat (I had both one day this week...I really need to stop that asap bc eating both aggravates a medical issue I have) & I didn't exercise at all:thumbdown:!

    However its a new week, I've already taken my vitamins, had water, am about to drink my green tea & will absolutely exercise today whether I want to or not because I KNOW it will help w/my stress and make me feel better.
