~*~ Tuesday's Getting Healthy Check-In ~*~

These Tuesdays just keep sneaking up on me! 

This check-in is not necessarily exercise-related - I know a lot of us are trying to eat healthier and give up bad habits thanks to the motivation of pregnancy/a new baby, so any kind of getting healthy is welcome here!

What did you do last week? 

What do you have planned for this week? 

What is your goal? 

QOTW: What is your favorite cereal?

And our leader-board for participation ...

7 weeks in a row for ktjayne1119 - way to go lady!

3 weeks back in the saddle for smellychelly25 - nearly to a whole month - keep it up!

And a warm welcome to mamainVA2013 and tttwalters!!  Hope to see you back this week!!

    I'd like to join!  I have my 6-week PP appointment tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get cleared to resume my normal exercise routine (jogging, yoga).  DD is about 5.5 weeks, born via c-section (she was 9lbs 2 oz!).  Recovery is slow but going well.

    Last week - too hot to walk outside, but we did walk around the mall, if that counts.  Ate a lot of ice cream.

    This week - hopefully walking outside Wed-Fri, if the weather holds.  Possibly jogging (solo, I don't have a jogging stroller) if I get the all clear from the doc.  Also hoping to stay ice-cream-free!

    Goal -  I have 15 lbs to go until I hit my pre-preg weight, and I'd like to lose another 10 on top of that.  I know it'll be easier to lose weight once I get back to work in October (school librarian).

    My favorite cereal is a toss-up between Raisin Bran and Honey Nut Cheerios. 

  • What did you do last week? Walking the track at the Y while pushing DS in his car seat/stroller. We seem to be getting into some sort of morning routine so we've been able to walk for longer. On Sundays, DH stays home with both kids so I can go faster and longer.

    What do you have planned for this week? Same as last week but also cut down on the junk food eating. My parents are gone so their yummy and so unhealthy foods are gone and I stocked up on better snacks

    What is your goal? To lose this darn extra 15 pounds that won't seem to budge... but I know it'll take some time


    QOTW: What is your favorite cereal? My all time favorite cereal was the rice krispie treat one. I was obsessed with it. Now my treat cereal is cinnamon toast crunch

  • Last week ran 4 miles every other day, feeling better and helping with some of the hormones I think. On my off days my emotions are a little more off balance.

    This week I would like to run every day, but I seem to need a day to recover, things seem to be sore. I don't think biking is an option so I may try swimming on my off days instead. Also, like pp, maybe I will lay off the ice cream a bit too...

    Goal to try and eat lunch every day this week, I seem to snack all day long, instead of actually eating a meal and would like to limit this!

    Fav cereal I like quaker oat squares and chia seeds. However if captin crunch was good for you I would probably live off of it, that and fruit loops!

  • I want to join too!!

    What did you do last week? Last week I started some of my harder at home dvd's and went for my first post baby run on Saturday. It was 89 degrees and miserable, and my pace was depressingly slow as compared to pre baby. But, really it just felt good to be running again.

    What do you have planned for this week? Running more. And, adding another day so I'm up to 5 days a week. I've been logging in myfitnesspal again which helps keep me in check.

    What is your goal?  It's lofty, but to be back at pre-preg weight by my anniversary. 18lbs by September 1st. And, to get back into good running shape so I can start training for a half marathon again.

    QOTW: What is your favorite cereal? Hmm... cinnamon toast crunch or apple jacks I'd say.

  • I'd better join too, these pounds aren't going away on their own!

    What did you do last week? Walked a little bit.  It's been crazy hot in KS and LO sleeps great in the mornings but doesn't go to sleep until midnight so I sleep in too and it's too hot when we get up.  Evenings are really buggy but I need to get out!

    What do you have planned for this week? Want to focus on walking at least 3-4 times this week, 2 miles each time. Hopefully this fall I'll be able to start running once it cools.

    What is your goal? Lose 17 pounds.

    QOTW: What is your favorite cereal? Honey nut bunches of oats!

  • Can I join please!!

    What did you do last week? Nothing!

    What do you have planned for this week? I got released yesterday to start exercising but I have to take it slow since I had a C/S and my scar is taking its time to heal. 

    What is your goal? To get back into shape. I've already lost my pregnancy weight plus an extra 11 lbs but I still don't fit into my regular clothes.  My goal for now is to lose another 20 lbs.

    QOTW: What is your favorite cereal? Lucky Charms or Raisin Bran.

    I have been going on daily walks in the neighborhood pushing my giant 6 week old! He's already 14 pounds! (Born at 8lbs 10oz)

    I have my doctors appointment Friday so hopefully I will be cleared for exercise and I can start toning up. I'm a huge fan of Jillian michaels videos and the firm!

    I am already down to my prepregnancy weight but I had 20 lbs to lose before I got pregnant so I am hoping breastfeeding and exercise will get it done by December!

    My favorite cereal is plain Cheerios!
