    Third day in a row!

    Same deal as yesterday: at least 30 minutes on the treadmill at a fast walk, and 20 minutes of stretching.
    I managed to pull the key off the treadmill halfway through, which erased my progress, naturally, but I did 15 minutes after that, so... pretty sure I got at least 30 minutes.

    Sparkpeople says that I need to be eating between 1200 and 1550 calories per day. I did some quick calculating, and I already do that ^_^. I think the only change I'll be making to my diet is to add fruit.

    Now i just need to figure out my budget and see if I can afford to buy a scale

    Oh, updates? Man, this thread will fill fast.

    Anyway, about 10 years ago I hurt my shoulder at work and it never properly healed. Always hurt when I would raise my arm laterally. That pain was lessening over time, but if I would lift my arm until it was held straight up, it would still hurt and I couldn't do any straight lateral arm raises. I compromised with Arnold Presses to try to work my shoulders without aggravating the injury. Anyway, today I tried out some tradition shoulder presses and low and behold my shoulder is working perfect again! Woo!

    Did 30 min on a stationary bike as well - My heart rate used to go just over 150 at the intensity I do by the time I was finished, today it was only 141, so that was cool. It's getting easier.

    Busy week has been busy. Due to medical stuff and work, I've gotten very little exercise in this week. I only managed a 40 minute session on my stationary bike on Monday, and due to leaving my house at 6:30 in the morning yesterday, and not getting home until 10:30 at night, got absolutely nothing done yesterday. Today's been nearly as busy, but I figure I can get in an hour tonight to try and make up for some of it.

    I have yet to try the yoga ^_^; The DVD I have came with the "yoga fitness set"... which I bought a year ago and just opened up on Monday. I watched a bit of it, and it's... they walk you through each pose, but it's not really a unified workout, and there isn't any music (which totally betrays all of my expectations for workouts :lol: ).

    Most of the stretches I'm doing are basic ones that I picked up over the years from doing basketball, and belly-dancing, and karate. I concentrate a lot on my hamstrings and Achilles tendon. I'm probably not pushing the stretches as much as I should, but...*shrugs*

    Not really. It's a bit of a learning curve, but I actually like their tracker. Is there something you're specifically having difficulty with?

    Do you mean the actual profile page, or registering a Spark People account? I'm assuming you mean the former, but please correct me if my assumption is incorrect.

    No, I have a sparkpeople account...

    It's mostly the food that I'm having trouble with ( well... that and navigating the site >.> ). The food that I eat doesn't appear to be in the database. I guess that means I'll just have to get the packages and input the info manually.

    However! The real question is: how do I get my points to show up on the team leaderboard? :oops:

    There's a bit of lag in the points showing up on the leaderboard. I'm not sure how long it actually takes. I realised I had my account flagged to not show up on the leaderboards, so make sure you don't have that set. After I unflagged it, I went to bed. So I'd say probably an hour or more before the points will show up, but they will!

    The food can be tricky. Try looking up things in the general sense. (i.e. corn rather than sweet corn, canned corn, creamed corn, etc.) But you CAN manually add the foods you eat with their packaging info, which - in theory - should help you be more accurate anyway.

    You should totally hit the "Search foods shared by other members" button on the search page under the list of results. I made a turkey sandwich today and they actually had the "Prima Della Golden Roasted Turkey Breast" I picked up at the deli yesterday. Also, for any turkey breast fans, Prima Della Golden Roasted Turkey is vastly inferior to Boars Head Ovengold Turkey.

    Oh you go girl! It's a great feeling knowing you put your body to the test.

    Just remember that you might feel incredibly sore tomorrow, especially if you haven't been eating alot of protein, which helps recovery. Stretching will also help.

    Good job though! Keep it up!

    I think you're on to something, retro. For whatever reason, I watch MSNBC when I work out (politics get me fired up, I guess!), and I watched during my thirty on the elliptical. I pushed myself a lot harder than I usually do. I managed two miles in thirty minutes, which is good for me.

    Then, I switched to my iPod on shuffle because I haven't made a workout playlist yet. I usually get close to six miles in my half hour on the recumbent bike (I use it as my cool down), but tonight I barely broke five. The tempo of my music on shuffle is all over the place and it makes it hard to stay consistent. Lot of slower songs tonight and I'm pretty sure that hurt me.

    I'm going to have to try your method and listen to some podcasts, I think. Keep up the great work!

    Oh well.

    I broke down and had a brownie yesterday after accidentally taking the bus 40 minutes out of my way on a 40 minute ride home. I was on the bus for nearly two hours, and halfway, stopped and was all OM NOM BROWNIE YOU WILL BE MY SUBSTITUTE DINNER UNTIL I CAN GET HOME RAWR RAWR MONCH MONCH.

    I'm totally down for this as I am getting a Gym membership in July to start swimming regularly again.

    I was 150 lbs, at 5'10 just 2 years ago, and somehow, I ballooned to 190. So, it's time to lose it again.

    I figure swimming an hour a day every day like I used to will probably do the trick. And working out in general motivates me to eat better.

    OK, gonna go out for a run (mostly walk) tomorrow. I'm debating whether or not to go ahead with my plans to quit smoking now or wait until I get comfortable with my weightloss routine first.

    I also need to give up soda, but that's gonna be rough because I'm pretty sure it's the caffeine in the ridiculous amount of soda I drink that makes it so hard to do.

    At the least switch to diet.

    Also, for those signed up for sparkspeople, check out their work out routines. It's crazy how much a change in the workout can make you look forward to the gym.

    I am, I had a bowl of pineapple for breakfast this morning. Eventually I want to work my way back up to at least 2 miles every monday, wednesday and friday. I know if I quit smoking it will make that goal easier, but I also know that if I try to quit smoking it will make my diet much more difficult to stick to.

    Midweek update:
    Monday - ate really, really bad. As in donuts for breakfast, salad for lunch with a slice of DQ ice cream cake for dessert and two slices of pizza for dinner. Almost no physical activity.

    Tuesday - 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and coffee for breakfast, salad for lunch, mix of tuna and steamed vegetables with a bit of sauce for dinner. Light yoga session of 30 min just so my muscles don't feel too shocked on the following day.

    Wednesday - 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and coffee for breakfast, salad for lunch, mix of tuna and steamed vegetables with a bit of sauce for dinner. Yoga X session of 1 hr 30 min. If you're familiar with P90x, well, that's the one I'm doing. I felt awesome, full of energy and could follow about 95% of the session.
    Peanut butter, nuts and almonds are actually prescribed by my doctor and my mom to rise my good cholesterol level.

    Thursday - Medicial sandwiches and coffee for breakfast, lunch probably chicken breast and side salad, salmon and veggies for dinner. Planning on doing mild session of yoga (1hr) to help with sore muscles and prepare for cardio tomorrow.
    Nothing is killing me but my pecs, upper back, shoulders and the back of my legs know they've worked out.

    Though I find recording the food to be the hardest part mostly because i tend to make my own meals as opposed to pre-packaged stuff and my method of measuring is all "yeah... that looks like enough"

    I suppose i could just start measuring it properly though. Though i've no idea how I'd enter something like the sandwich i made for lunch - it was brown bread, turkey ham, tomato, red onion, some salad cream and a small bit of grated cheese in it.

    And there's nothing worse than finally getting motivated to hit the gym, overdoing it, pulling/straining/damaging something and finding yourself sidelined again, possibly burrying your misery in Ben & Jerry's Americone Dream or If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours.

    But enough about my favourite snack foods.

    Seriously, just a suggestion to those starting on the long road; ease into it. Spend the first couple of days or even weeks getting accustomed to what you can do. Find 100 pounds easy on the bench? Add 10 or 20 to a set, don't slam on a pair of 25's. Find level 5 easy on the elliptical, listen your body when it tells you that level 15 isn't such a good idea yet.

    Managed to get up at 6 this morning and start biking again. Pulled 12.5 miles, and burned approximately 425 calories (according to my bike). I've been really lazy this week, as I was getting up around 36 miles combined last week, so hopefully I'll get my ass on there two more times today.

    Really need to eat something for lunch though. The coffee and orange for breakfast is sitting uncomfortably in my stomache.

    I went on WeightWatchers and as of Wednesday, I am at 239.

    So far so good for me. Day 4 of eating healthier and 4 straight days of exercise.

    I just have to keep reminding myself that even if I'm tired, I'll feel better after I exercise. This is easier to convince myself of some days than others.

    Yeah, I'm trying to convince myself I should go while there's a lull in the very wet weather outside... it'll totally clear up in like 20 minutes D:

    Uff da. Thursday was bad for me, but I knew it would be. Had a friend's birthday party to go to and it was nomihodai (all you can drink). Lots of empty calories there! Plus, a very yummy set menu of Okinawan food. But at least I ran that morning. It's Friday morning here already, we'll see what exercise I can squeeze in today.

    On a side note, last call at a nomihodai is hilarious. Everyone orders extra drinks so you get a TON of drinks that last round.
