|Motivation||boyfriends and weight gain||Jul 07 2007
OH ladies I am in the same boat! I have gained 20 pounds in this relationship and he's a nutritional IDIOT and hates working out. I have begged him to start working on himself because he's almost dangerously overweight and he just doesn't care and I think he resents me for pushing him so I'm backing off... but that hasn't stopped him from wreaking havoc on my health... I USED TO BE A PERSONAL TRAINER...
... now I choose him over the gym. My eating is better so that's not an issue (now we just need to get him on board).
It's been 2.5 years and nothing has clicked to get me back in the gym on a regular basis... I don't have any friends close by at the same gym as me so getting an accountability partner- forget it.
Maybe we should start a group where we challenge each other to change our ways? Ideas?

Oh my goodness guys... I can't believe Aimee and I have both disappeared for a week... LOL the boards must have been really quiet!!!
I gained almost 3 pounds back in Atlanta so perhaps me not getting around to weighing in on Wendesday wasn't too bad of an idea but I'm hoping to at least break even if not lose a pound by this weeks weigh in.
I did a really good job this weekend for a huge graduation party AND fathers day party and then got a stellar list of groceries so as long as I make working out regularly, I might have a good stretch for our last few weeks, somethings gotta change, I'm at my heaviest weight EVER :( It's so frustrating. This weekend I got so many looks for NOT shoveling food down my throat, that never helps when you're not getting support.
Thanks to you guys for your hard work for the team, I'm going to kick it into high gear from here on out- who's with me!!!

I FINALLY LOST!!! 1.5 lbs... and i'm totally less flabby, thank god for this!!!
well I just got a job offer today which will carry over when I pass the Bar, so I'm almost officially an attorney... I don't know if this means I'll gain weight because I have no time or I'll lose because my time is more precious and I'll be more disciplined... or stressed... but at least I have a job!!! ... and no life/soul/will to live.
Oh well, I've become a gym rat again lately, yay. And the flamenco DVDs from Netflix-> suck.

I missed the scene after the credits. darn, I guess I'll have to go back and see it again ;)
I went to the gym today, did some serious lifting and INTENSE sprinting intervals. I'm going home to visit family next week and would like to firm up just a bit, I usually have more than 6 days notice of going back but I got free airline tickets yesterday, super excited!!!
the bad thing is that it's atlanta and I fall prey to southern cuisine when I only get it 4 times a year... the good news is I have a great running neighborhood so I'll do that while I'm home. Can't bring the dance DVDs, the brothers give me such crap... haha!

WOW I'm so glad you guys are losing because I'm not. This will be the fourth week at this weight for me now. I cannot break this plateau for the life of me, but I did start some serious lifting so I know I'm changing my body composition, but the scale won't budge... yet!
Aimee- way to run, it's fun isn't it, and the best way to exercise. I Netflixed about 30 cardio dance DVDs so I can't wait to do them as they come in. Stuff like the Carmen Electra cardio strip videos (haha). I like DVDs because I can do them at any hour in whatever outfit... but I would always opt for running over anything else ANY day.
I'm super bummed about how ginormous I've gotten in such a quick amount of time. None of my clothes are fitting, I just had to go up a size at my favorite store and about had a conniption. I eat really well, but find it hard to fit in exercise time and find it even harder to believe that's why I'm gaining 15 pounds in one year... AAAAAAAARGH I'm so over it sometimes.
I think I'm gonna go see our movie again. It was amazing. (Hello, Orlando Bloom as a dirty pirate, and multiple shirtless Johnny Depps [PS was anyone else dissapointed that he didn't have a fabulous body?] YOWSA!)

As a trainer I always told my clients that a good cardio goal is 200 minutes a week, should we aim for that?
Also guys, I think our ultimate goal is once we do a challenge, to keep incorporating it into our lifestyles... so keep sleeping and keep drinking and keep those steps going!!!
And to those who aren't losing or losing slowly, don't be discouraged. This cardio challenge will kick some serious butt.
AAAARGH (frustrated, non-piratey Argh), ok now I feel the pain. I just lost a pound.... too bad I weighed in as no change this week... oh well maybe I'll lose two for next! See it happens to everyone, but thank god we're a team, I couldn't do this without you guys!

Off to the gym, I'm gonna row for an hour and lift :) My boyfriend and I have challenged each other to lose 40 pounds as a competition so here's hoping he gets his booty of the sofa, too. It's hard when you're trying to lose but attached to someone who could care less.
I've been sleeping really well.... it's my vacation still ;) But I always insist on 8 hours...
I have gone three weeks without having any desserts in my house so I think I'm doing pretty good on the sugar thing!
Couldn't give up the caffeine but I've definately cut back on diet sodas. I'm loving my massive quantities of water each day!
DON'T FORGET TO WEIGH IN ON THE OTHER THREAD TOMORROW and drink up, me hearties, YO HO!!! Let's finally win a week, we're getting beat!

ephedra works wonders but it has it's costs, hence the ban.
you can eat what you want while taking it, it's not a magic pill... it's a metabolic enhancer.
I personally think FDA overreacts to it, there are very few deaths related to a voluntaru substance vs. some way more extreme numbers for things such as gastric bypass.
