@vancouverpetunia I'm so sorry for neglecting the thread, thank you so much for holding us accountable 11 lbs lost? Wow, congrats Hun!!! That's awesome to hear, your motivation is so inspiring and clearly your determination works! I agree that the holidays is so hard, especially with all the work parties and treats everywhere.

I have been really good with my workouts but have fallen off the healthy eating at night and have started to snack....a lot! I've still been good with meal prep for work but night time is when I turn to my old habits. I weighed myself recently and noticed that I've gained a couple of pounds, ugh. Coincidentally, my bootcamp instructor texted me over the weekend and asked me what my game plan was for the 7 weeks I have left till wedding day. I confessed that I've been snacking more so now we're on a plan. I will add a third bootcamp session to my regular weekly exercise regimen so I'll be working out 5x a week instead of 4. I've also made a promise to her that I will try to not snack at night and she will check up on me nightly to make sure I keep my promise. Today we did my weigh-in and measurements. Sadly I did gain weight (3.5 lbs) but my measurements were basically the same (gained half an inch at the bust and hips but lost an inch around my waist). I was quite happy with that since it's my time of the month, yet my measurements were still good. I'm hoping the weight gain is also from this, or even muscle mass? As for snacking, I brushed my teeth after dinner and have not craved any snacks. So far so good, especially for day 1.

How are you all doing?

@vancouverpetunia well done on the 11lbs weight loss! You are my inspiration! So amazing and determined! I love it!
@Wafflesmom you are still doing good. At least you aren't slacking on all areas of the regime! You sound like you are well on your way to being on track again. And good for you for having a trainer that's also willing to hold you accountable! Keep up the good work!
@calgarybride2015 you are crushing it with those 11.6lbs in the past! You are so determined I love it! Keep it up girl! You motivate me!

Me on the other hand, I've been downright horrible. It was our 5 year anniversary 2 weekends ago so we spent the weekend in the mountains and had the keg, and LOTS of wine! Then I got a stomach bug for three days and ate nothing but chicken noodle soup. I have worked out maybe once in a week and a half. I also got attacked last night by my soy intolerance causing me to not workout once again :( I feel like I'm just full of excuses but it's hard when you don't feel good.

I just purchased a new workout program called the masters hammer and chisel. It's 60 days and we have just under 80 till our wedding so as soon as it arrives in going to start the program, be diligent on my diet and only cheat on Xmas eve and day! I need to get better at checking in here's I read all the posts but I'm so busy / lazy that i don't post. Plus I'm bummed I'm not doing as good as is hoped by now. Time to turn the game around. Thanks for picking this thread back up ladies! Let's crush this holiday season!!!!

I like it! We're gonna crush this holiday season!  :D 

 

@Wafflesmom Thank you. I'm pretty pleased with my progress so far, but it's easy to slip back into bad habits, I know! It's great to hear your measurements are looking good and that you are going to bump up the bootcamps. Evening snack time is the worst! What if you tried snacking on something healthy? That way you are "filling the void" but hopefully in a healthier way. Or try fruit-infused water?

 

@yycbride2016 Awwwhhh shucks. I don't think I have ever been "inspirational" when it comes to fitness & nutrition! I'm sorry to hear you've been having a rough go. I hope you had a nice anniversary celebration though. Don't be too hard on yourself. You can't do much when you are feeling sick! Let us know how you like the new work out.

Very easy to slip back into old habits. While I haven't, I am finding it easy to bend my rules haha. Must stay on track.

Just checking in ladies... I'm happy to say I did 3 resistance workouts (although cut one shorter than usual) and 3 cardio workouts this past week. I was aiming for 3 and 2. But not so great on the food front... I put on half a pound. Oh well. I'm not gonna lose sleep over it.

 

So I've been doing a fitness & nutrition program for a full 12 weeks now. A friend/former colleague got me into it. It's mainly online with a big support group on Facebook, as well as workout videos, nutritional guidelines, recipes, etc. 12 weeks ago I took my measurements. I took them again today. I didn't lose any inches on my legs, which doesn't surprise me. I have always had pretty muscular legs and I used do a lot of spin classes. But I have lost 1.5" at my shoulders and 3" at my waist. I'm still no super model, but pleased with the progress. 

 

I won't freak you out with my comparison pix, except one... where did my back fat go?!?  :D

Ummmm sister that's totally noticeable and awesome. Way to go girl. Gives me the motivation I need today to get my arse up and to the gym, so thank you

I had a rough weekend with food last week so I was up 1-2 lbs ugh. This season is tough but I made the commitment today to get on the horse cause I need my swim suits to fit in Cuba and I don't wanna come home and start all over again :( I was just starting to feel comfortable with myself again. I will indulge a bit at a party but I won't blow the whole day.

Congrats again on your success :)

Thanks, Kim! I have front & side pix that also show progress but I hate my tummy, always have, so not keen to post. The back photo was the most surprising though. I guess because I can't see my back? Whereas I could tell my pants were fitting better, etc.

You've done so well this fall! Do your best to stay on track and every little bit helps. Believe me, I'm not eating as I should at every meal, but I am making an effort at every meal where I have the control over what I eat. If I have a bad lunch because I was at a work event, I still have a good dinner. Except, of course, last Friday when I was hungover from my work Xmas party lol. That day involved pizza and a full chocolate bar.

I know how you feel with not liking those views :) I was thinking too - for both of us - the little gains can be the weights too. Yes I know it's probably the food haha but this was the first time I did weights in over a month and I noticed a large blip. I couldn't walk for 4 days haha

Today I re commit myself. I was up to head to the class and I couldn't find my keys. I'm so frustrated. Well the search continues as I kinda need them lol but I will commit to doing a work out video at home.

We got this! Have a good week
And ps you are so right about having control over the meals we can. I usually have a blip and then figure I should blow the whole day. I'm awful for that but it's clear how easy I can gain weight.

Hope you found your keys! How annoying... Yes, the gains could definitely be muscle. In fact, in this program that I'm in, they tell you not to weigh yourself, because there is a lot of weight training. It's all about measurements and the photos. Let's go with muscle  ;)

@vancouverpetunia wow, your photos are impressive! Doesn't it feel good to see the fruits of your labour. It's completely encouraging to see that all the hard work, determination and will power does produce results. Thank you for sharing, you've actually motivated me to produce results of my own! By the way, what was the program?

As for me, I've been doing do well with no snacks at night. I've decided to brush my teeth after dinner and it totally helps lol. I've been making my workouts though with the Christmas concerts, dinners and get togethers, they're completely throwing off my schedule. I missed bootcamp today for my boss' going away party. I couldn't miss that so I opted for a brisk walk with my dog. Better than nothing I suppose. I will be doing the rest of my workout regime (pilates x2 and bootcamp) so I'm still gonna work my butt off.
