Ok so the stats for last week, we have are:

Dave: 0%/16 points
Elizabeth: -1.12%/26 points
Hung: -2.10%/20 points
Kim: 0.75%/?? points
Kimberly: -0.04%/?? points -- (I think you told me but I can't find them)
Kipp: -0.81%/16 points
Lynn: 0%/28 points
Rick: 0.01%/34 points
Robbie: -0.52%/28 points
Vicky: -2.21%/29 points + 3 for biggest % of weight loss

So congrats to Rick for earning the most points last week and me for having the biggest % of weight lost.

Keep up the good work everyone! If you're not where you want to be, just remember we're going until the end of May. There will be ups and downs - think of the changes you want to make and how you want to achieve them. Don't be afraid to ask questions - we're all here for each other!

Hey all!! Sorry...life has been nutty since Marathon Weekend!! My assistant principal has been on a tear, and it's been harder to get on. I'm trying to do better though!

If nothing comes up, I plan to spend lunch catching up on the February thread.

For this exercise, I find it easier to balance when I look ahead and focus on a spot ahead of me. Don't look up or down - pick something in front of you and keep your eyes on that. Also make sure you tighten your core as you bend. It took me a few tries to get it down without wobbling.

Good Morning Team! We are back from vacation, had a great time! I even lost weight! (Due to upset stomach first 4 days, and not eating much, then not going overboard when I did feel like eating again). Just looked outside, blizzard happening, thought snow was not due before afternoon!

Vicky - If I can get credit for last week, I will claim 28 pts for last week (for daily exercise, water, vitamins, and dairy - can’t say I ate my veggies, cannot say that the new food I tried was healthy - what do you want on vacation???). I will do a normal weigh in on Fri.
This weeks challenge sounds fun, I am just reading it today, so missed most of the week, but I will try it for today anyway.

I need confirmation on the exercise points, is it 1 pt per hour of exercise during the week, not 1 pt for exercising at least 1hr a day? I will still claim the 7 pts this last week, because we were walking about 3-4 hrs a day on vacation, but I will calculate by the hr, not by the day if that is the way it is supposed to be scored.

Space Coast Race is a great race, flat course, really pretty, very well organized, and cheaper than Disney races. At this point, I do not know if we will be back to walking 1/2 marathons after knee replacement or not, but I can definitely recommend the Space Coast.

Dave - Sounds like your training is going well even if you are not losing weight.

Kipp - There are lots of different training plans out there, just spend some time on the internet. You can always modify any of them to meet your personal needs.

Beth - Welcome back!

AFM - Have lots of chores to do today, but will get back to regular exercise, although we did a lot of walking at WDW.

Pixie dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Anyone have big plans?

Lynn - Welcome home! The pups must be glad to see you and Scott!

I was thinking more along the lines of 7 hours of exercise/week will give you 7 points for the week. If you only exercised 3 hours, then you'd get 3 points. I should go and change the post to clarify

Has there been any other news regarding the knee replacements?

Rebecca/Sue/Kim - Any plans for the long weekend?

AFM - I got in another workout last night - mostly weights. I haven't been working out as much as I would like but I'm still active and hope to get out for a run this weekend now that some of the snow has melted. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Don't forget to weigh in tomorrow and record your points so I can tally them up. Here's hoping for lots of losers

Happy Friday, everyone,

I wanted to run yesterday but a 2-hour meeting at work left my back muscles so stiff that I could barely move. I just have a small twinge now so I'm planning to give it try after work. I'm doing the exercises that I learned in PT last year and that seems to be the greatest help.

Lynn: When is your knee replacement?

AFM:

Weight
158 lbs for a loss of 1.0 lbs

Exercise
Completing a weekly workout challenge = 0
0 hours of exercise = 0 points
I hope this changes now that the back pain is subsiding.

Healthy eating
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day = 7 points
Trying a new healthy food or recipe for the week = 0 points
Taking a multivitamin daily = 0 points
Eating five servings of fruits and veggies daily = 7 points
Eating two servings of dairy a daily = 7 points

Exercise Challenge: 0…forgot about it
10 hours exercise: 10 points Thanks to a lot of snow shoveling
8 Glasses of Water a day: 7 points
Try a healthy Recipe: 0
Multivitamin: 0
5 Fruits/Veggies: 6
2 Servings Dairy: 7

Points: 30

Weight loss: Actually up 0.5 from last week so I am @193.5 lbs. Down 0.5 overall.
This really baffles me…I had no junk food at all, and worked out more than previous week. In addition, I had this stomach bug Wed night and Thursday and I hardly ate a thing…yet I gained a half pound!

I gained 2lbs this week (250.8) , mostly from last night's Valentine's Day dinner. Good thing that only comes around once a year! I suppose it was worth it, but I hated having to write it down here!

Good Morning Team!

Vicky - Scott is having his surgery on Monday, then mine is March 4th. I am hoping that the 2 weeks in between is enough for Scott to recover enough to drive (not taking heavy duty pain killers). The pups are always happy to see us (luckily for us, they also love going to the kennel - actually, I think they would be happy as long as someone fed them.)

Elizabeth - Good luck with your back. My knee surgery is March 4th.

AFM - Weight 150 so -3 (I think I started out at 153) for 2 weeks.
Points
Exercise 7 pts (still was on vacation and walking many hours a day most of the week)
Healthy Eating - 7 pts for water, 7 pts for vitamin, 7 pts for dairy, do not think I ever had 5 servings of fruits and veggies.
Total: 28pts

Pixie dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

Happy Friday team!

Well I'm up I gained 0.4 lbs this week - I think it's from eating more meat this week which tends to take longer to digest. I was pretty good except for my cheat day. These are my points for the week:

Exercise
Completing a weekly workout challenge = 3 points
1 hour of exercise = 3 points (3 hours)

Healthy eating
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day = 7 points
Trying a new healthy food or recipe for the week = 1 point (Ground turkey and veggie mix)
Taking a multivitamin daily = 7 points
Eating five servings of fruits and veggies daily = 6 points
Eating two servings of dairy a daily = 5 points

Total: 32 points

I will get everyone's points and weight recorded!

**Exercise for the week**

Since a lot of people mentioned having trouble balancing, I thought maybe an exercise to work on balance would be good. It will help with your running too

So this week the exercise is simple to balance on one leg for 20-30 seconds and try working your way up to 1 minute. Let's try for 3 sets, making sure you do both the right and left legs for each set. Sound easy?

Use your arms to balance and stand near a wall or chair in case you do lose your balance.
Engaging your core muscles will help to keep you stable

If the sets become easy, try doing the balance work in barefeet or standing on a soft pillow to create instability.

Hi Team

Weight 183 down .6 from last week and total loss 3.6 lbs

Miles 14 for the week.

2.5 hours of exercise that is not miles.

I take a vitamin and fish oil every day. 7 points

I drink my required water 5 points

I experimented with some new healthy eating ideas.

I'm still progressing with the healing and strengthening.

Hope everyone is doing good as well.

Dave

My top four for 2014 would be:

1) Niagra Marathon
2) Toronto Marathon
3) PEI Marathon Marathon
4) Space Coast Marathon

I picked these because:
- they were all in the same month timeframe for ease of scheduling
- the top three were in Canada so running an international race seemed cool to me
- the fall timeframe means no Hot/Humid races

*Full Disclosure: I am running the Space Coast race (Half or Full) regardless in 2014 cuz I am going for the Big Bang Five Year medal collection

Wow Rick that's a lot of traveling.

My races for this year are:

A 4 mile local race on April 13th

The Ky Derby half on April 26th

The Senior Olymics July 30th and 31st

After that some local 5Ks and a 10K until Oct when I'm planning the USATF Masters championship 5K in Kingsport Tenn. That is if I'm strong and ready since I will be up against the best 40 and over race walkers in the country.

In 2014 I may do the Flying Pig half or the Nashville half, not sure yet, but probably Nashville.

Then a repeat of this year and preparing for the 2015 Goofy.

Dave
