Hey team! Just a reminder to post tomorrow with your points and weight. You can post a breakdown of how you earned the points but please add them up. It just ends up being extra work for me to add them up for everyone Please and thank-you!

Kimberly - Thanks! I realized as I was writing the RR, I never got a pic with you and Rick after the race I will definitely have to do that the next race we do! Don't worry about the weight, it's just a number and it's all downwards from here!!

Rick - Great report! Loved the medal and the part about the banana was hilarious! Would you do that race again or was it a one and done?

I am definitely thinking of doing the race next year. If you do it three consecutive times, you become part of their Legacy Club. You are supposed to get a lot of extra swag, a special bib, and stuff. So it is tempting to go for that.

I highly recommend the race if you ever want to run a race by the beach. The race is part of the Beach Cities Challenge -- the Surf City, OC, and Long Beach International Marathons. If you run all three (in any combination of Half or Full), you get an additional "Beach Cities Medal" which weighs 3/4 pounds and looks awesome!

I know it is quite late but I finally got my actual race report for the WDW Marathon Weekend published. This one is the more traditional race report rather than the reflections type post I did in January.

Hope you like it. Hopefully it doesn't have too many typos and bad sentence structures. I wrote it late Thursday night and I was tired by the time I was done.

Thanks in advance Vicky for letting me link to your race reports for better detailed race progress. If I had included that into my own, the report would have gone on for way too many pages. LOL

Good morning team.

I didn't lose a pound this week. I started the week at 183.4 and have stayed right there. Last week I lost 3.2 lbs but this week none at all. I feel like I had a good week though. 5 miles on Monday, 1 hr workout on Tuesday, 10 miles on Wednesday and rest testerday. So Vicky points this week 16.

I'm feeling super though and I feel stronger, just didn't drop any weight. Hopefully next week will see the scale move a bit.

Hope all you northern folks are ok this morning, looks like y'all are getting some serious snow.

Dave

Happy Friday everyone!

Dave - Good job on the points and the workouts! The competition is going until the end of May so it all evens out over time. Will get your points and weight recorded!

Rick - I'm going to check out your race report after I'm done posting here. You're welcome

AFM - We have a serious dumping over snow overnight and it's still going on. I think I heard we're expected to get up to 17 inches when it's all done. I was hoping to go out for a long run this weekend but it may not happen because of the snow. It depends on how fast the roads and sidewalks get cleared.

I'm hoping to go and see 'Lincoln' this weekend but I heard it's a long movie so I'm not sure if I'm up for that. But Sunday is also Chinese New Year so I have a dinner to go to that day. Luckily, Sunday is a cheat day for me so I can be slightly off diet

I left my points on my spreadsheet at home but I'm down this morning to 137.2 for a loss of 3.1 lbs (-2.21%)!! Whee! I guess that tells you how badly I was snacking and eating out. *ahem*

Stay warm and safe for those of you in the path of the storm!

I lost 2 lbs to come in at 246

Exercise Challenge: 1 point
8 Glasses of Water a day: 5 points
Try a healthy Recipe: 1 point (Apple Crisp dessert recipe)
Multivitamin: 7 points
Fruits/Veggies: ZERO points
2 Servings Dairy: 2 points

I'm fuzzy on the weight portion. So without that portion I look to have 16 points plus whatever I qualify for on the weigh-in.

I've still not started to run again... I WILL be doing a race at the beginning of May, so I HAVE to start my plan! I just haven't figured out WHAT my plan is going to be. I think this go around I'm going to try something different than the Hal Higdon plans, as I'm not fond of the large mileage being the weekend previous to the race.

Exercise Challenge: 10 points for Race PR, plus 7 points for 7 hours of exercising for the week
8 Glasses of Water a day: 4 points
Try a healthy Recipe: 0
Multivitamin: 7 points
Fruits/Veggies: 0
2 Servings Dairy: 6 points
Total points: 34!

Updated! To include my points for the 7 hours spent exercising during the week (running and swimming)

I hope I am scoring this right…please correct me if wrong!

Exercise Challenge: 2 for 2 mins of jumping jacks. 7 for 7 hours exercise= 9 points
8 Glasses of Water a day: 7 points (if green tea counts, if not…0)
Try a healthy Recipe: 0
Multivitamin: 0
5 Fruits/Veggies: 5
2 Servings Dairy: 7

Points: 28

Weightloss: Because I misbehaved during Superbowl, I lost only 1 lb (194 to 193) so 0.5%. Don’t think I get any points for that!

Oops! Thanks for the reminder Kipp! I totally forgot about the exercise of the week. Ok so since a few of us were talking about glute strengthening on the FB chat. I thought a good exercise would be single legged deadlifts. My chiro has me doing these and I really like them - they work your core and balance as well so that's a bonus. I find this one easier to do in front of a mirror so I can see myself. And you don't need to touch the ground, just go as far forward as you comfortably can.

For our challenge, let's aim for 3 sets with 8-12 reps. 1 set includes your left and right legs. And you get a break, you only have to do them Monday to Thursday If you're familiar with the exercise, get to it! If not, keep reading for an explanation.

Single Legged Deadlifts (from RunnersWorld.com):Stand on your right leg with your left leg behind you and in the air. Keeping your shoulders back and your back straight, hinge forward and reach your hands toward the ground. Return back up and repeat. Hold weights or a medicine ball for an added challenge.


Here's a link to a video that shows how they're done. It's the third exercise on the video and it starts at about 1:40

http://bcove.me/3kzdytpo

Let me know if you have any questions

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm guessing there will be a lot of bonus exercise points for those of you who got snowed in and didn't have a snow blower

Kipp - Congrats on the loss! 2lbs is awesome!! Which other race training programs are you looking at? I haven't run either since Disney LOL

Rick - WTG on the points

Robbie - I go for a cheat day a week to try and keep my metabolism guessing. I think part of the fun of Superbowl are the treats But you're running so it's not too bad. Your points look good to me!

I forgot to post my points from last Friday. Here they are:

Completing a weekly workout challenge = 3 points (1 min x 3 days)
1 hour of exercise = 1 point
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day = 7 points
Trying a new healthy food or recipe for the week = 1 point (Lentil Chili)
Taking a multivitamin daily = 7 points
Eating five servings of fruits and veggies daily = 5 points
Eating two servings of dairy a daily = 5 points

Total of 29 points

I'm still looking to get a weigh-in from Elizabeth and points from Hung, Elizabeth, Kim and Kimberly I'll post the biggest loser from last week once I hear from Elizabeth!
