Day 7- 100 Day Challenge

Day 7, 93 days left...

The Google spreadsheet is HERE.  Click on it and make sure to put an X on the days you follow through.  Also, I added a "week" column, going from Monday-Sunday and I added Feb. 28th, since that was technically the first day of week 1, even though we didn't start until Tuesday.  A new week will start on Monday.  Mark the days you follow through, and then at the end of the week (in the "WEEK" column) mark an X if you achieved your goal for the week.  If you don't have a "weekly" goal, then mark it if you followed through with your goal for more than half of those 7 days.

It's Monday and the start of week TWO!  If last week didn't go like you had hoped, that's ok.  It's a new week and a new day.  Get recommitted.  Get motivated!  

I thought Monday through Friday I would post a QOTD (Question Of The Day), so we can start learning from each other.  If anyone has questions they want answered, just leave it in the comments section and I'll try to get those posted.

Monday QOTD: What is your typical breakfast?

For me, I don't like to load up before I workout because my stomach doesn't like that (as noted in my previous post.)  I usually eat 1/2 a banana, go workout, then eat the other half when I come back, along with 2 eggs fried in PAM (no butter).  I also love oatmeal, omelets, whole wheat toast with peanut butter and sliced banana, and Yoplait fruit smoothies.  Sometimes I will drink a Kirkland chocolate weight loss shake if I'm in a hurry (230 cals.)  So, what about you guys?

My friend, Meighan, and I went to our 5:30am Combat class today.  I LOVE working out early.  It starts my day off right, and it's nice to know my workout is done for the day.  

My Comments to You:

Chelsea- Do you have weights at home or do you have to go to a gym?  Great job!  (And thanks for the sympathy. ;) )

Rebecca- I'm so glad you got out there, despite the nasty cold weather.  I remember one of my long runs last winter.  I was going to the Bountiful temple and back, my favorite run, about 8 miles.  I knew it was chilly but I told myself I was going no matter what.  I bundled up and started my run.  Well a few miles into it, rain started coming.  The rain turned to snow.  I was wearing my glasses and rain and snow made it so I couldn't see out of them.  So here I was, running to the temple, not even half there.  I was squinting because I took off my glasses because I couldn't see out of them, and my legs were freezing.  It took everything in me not to pull my cell phone out and call Jake and have him come get me.  I was so miserable.  I finally made it though and as I stood in my nice hot shower I had this huge sense of accomplishment wash over me.  I did something hard, and I didn't give up.  Such a cool feeling.  So just remind yourself on hard days that in the end, it really will be worth it.  You are strong, and you can do hard things! PS I changed the spreadsheet for you.  Good idea, adding the week column.  

Selena- Way to go!!!  Did Madeline join you? ;)  You're going to be the Step Queen by the end of this thing.  We will definitely have to go to a class together!  Saturday mornings at 7am at Gold's.  Or we could go to the Rec Center.  You just let me know!

Nurse Heidi said...

Being held accountable on this has been good for me. I have a conference at the end of this week that's going to screw up my long runs, so I am adding extra time on the bike. I even did both today :). I did weights twice last week and will for sure do them twice this week too.

Annie said...

In response to your response to me:
Yes, I am nursing. I am taking that into account. I am mainly using "my plate" to raise my awareness as to what and how much I am eating. As you know, I love to run- and working out has never been a problem for me. I am able to maintain my weight and lose some, and not worry too much about the diet. However, I am so READY to lose some of this extra pregnancy (x 4) weight! (Actually I can pinpoint exactly when the weight came on:It was AFTER Allie was born, and I had 2 babies under 15 months- the second of which was in the hospital on and off for over a year. I didn't exercise like I wanted to, and didn't take care of myself for various reasons-and the weight came on....ugh) So NOW I am working on the food and continuing to exercise. So far, so good. I have resisted snacks and such, simply because I knew I was going to have to enter the calories into the computer- and own up to it!! :)I am keeping this commitment and I'm excited for the results!! :)

So today I woke up early to do my 20 in exercising because it's a busy day and I wanted to get it done, well I ended up working out on the treadmill for 30 min!!! Woohooo...oh and I run for almost 10 minutes which is an improvement from my 7 minutes last week LOL. As for breakfast, usually I ate cereal..know i'm trying to eat 2 eggs, or a English muffin, some yogurt or a breakfast shake, but if I do have cereal it's the right portion size now!

Anonymous said...

I never eat before working out (for similar reasons...) I typically eat a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a half of a banana for breakfast. I am not a breakfast person!
Jamie- Question... How often do you suggest buying new shoes? I typically work out for 45-60 minutes 5-6 days a week. Most of that time if cario.

Ashleigh said...

For breakfast I normally eat cereal (I'm off of the really sugary ones now), or if I'm going to workout, I'll have a banana before and then something else light afterward.

A friend of mine had some Nike shoes from her work that she sent me. She sent 2 brand new pairs and I really like them. It's fun to get new workout stuff because it gives me a renewed desire to get my butt into gear. I'm struggling right now, though because I haven't been able to sleep more than 3 hours a night for the past 2 weeks. Baleigh is sick with RSV and it's been really hard. She throws up almost every night and just won't sleep much for me. I try to keep her quiet so Chad can sleep, but it's been so draining that I am starting to feel sick. I'm keeping up with everything,'s just a little harder right now. Hopefully she'll get better in the next couple of weeks and I can finally sleep!

Stephanie said...

Our typical breakfasts are: cold cereal, oatmeal, pancakes (when DH does the cooking), or muesli. Muesli is my favorite - I soak rolled oats in milk and a bit of honey overnight in the fridge, and we eat it cold in the morning. Sometimes we mix in dry fruits and nuts.

Tiffany Precissi said...

My breakfast varies. Today all I had was a little bit of scrambled eggs. I am nursing a bum stomach due to taking some medication that chewed it up. Because I don't want to risk anything I've been eating pretty bland stuff but I have still been tracking! The workout stuff has been on hold during these last few days but I did work up a bit of a sweat vacuuming and dusting the house today.

My trainer is opening her own Crossfit gym a week from today so I will be starting back up in Crossfit and I am REALLY excited.

Chelsea said...

Doing good and committed! I'm an oatmeal junky for breakfast. Homemade kind. I'll settle for eggs and plain toast or french toast with lots of fruit is the next runner up.

I have weights at home.

Garland Family said...

My typical breakfast is either brown sugar mini wheats, multigrain cheerios w/banana, or scrambled eggs and whole wheat english muffin. I used to not be a breakfast eater at all, but have slowly trained my body eating breakfast again. even in highschool I never did. Now I can't go without eating I get extrememly hungry.

Made is to Jazzercise again today and man I'm in for it this week. she has really kicked it up a notch. YIKES! I also got a call from Curves, I won a free week haha! great timing for me. I'm so excited!! This has been so great for me and holding me accountable. it's getting a little easier for me and I feel like I have more energy. I don't know if its cause we actually have more daylight and sunshine or eating healthier and exercising has a lot to do with it. But I feel great either way.

Madeline didn't join me this time!
I think I'll try the rec center. Thanks Jamie!!

I'm sorry you had such a crazy weekend. I hope you are feeling better.

My breakfast is a protein smoothie every morning. I add 1 banana, 5 frozen strawberries, 1 cup of milk, and a large scoop of protein powder then I blend it. It fills me up well, and I don't have to eat anything else for at least 3 hours. It tastes great, too!!
