Let's Get Fit Together!

Recommended Posts

I haven't been doing much in the way of exercise. My work schedule is insane and I'm having a heck of time getting into some sort of routine. I'm still just maintaining my weight. I'm not gaining but I'm not losing. Hopefully I can break this pattern soon.

Thanks, hon! I know most of the gals here have no idea who most of the folks in my pix with me are, so it makes me smile when someone recognizes the folks I hang out with. It's really nothing to envy, though, just...people. Although Dee is awesome, don't get me wrong.
Cool people nonetheless! That's awesome you are back on your diet, as well.

I haven't ran since Sunday night because I've been sick since Monday... Feeling down about it, but I know if I run while being sick I won't recover and faster.  The good news is that I ran for 50 mins straight on Sunday :) I plan on doing my first 5k on November 3rd. Hopefully, I'll recover soon so I can build more stamina and confidence!

Wow!  That is freaking awesome to run for 50min straight!  I can only do 15min then walk.  I've never been much of a runner, I used to be able to do 1hr but that was long long long ago. If  you can do 50min,  you most definitely can do a 5k no problem.

So after work I decided to run anyway. I read somewhere that if your sickness is about the neck, then it's okay to run. I just got done doing a 3 minute walk and a 60 minute run :) SUCH A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME.

 

Thank you!!!! I've never been much of a runner until this thread started. I seriously owe it to this thread. I highly doubt I would've found out about C25K. I used to hate running. Running 2 minutes straight was a struggle! I haven't started running outside, so that's why I'm intimidated to do the 5k. I'm really trying to kick up my runs so I'm prepared. Since I was able to hit an hour, I'm going to start increasing speed.

Just think, you can run for 1 hour and 5k won't take you an hour.  Probably 35-40min or less, I can walk 5k in under 1hr without ever running or jogging any of the course.

Yesterday was my 4 year anniversary with my boyfriend.... since I've been doing so well sticking to my diet I decided to buy myself a nice dress to wear for the occasion. I can't remember the last time I felt so pretty in something I wore laughing.gif

So I tried running outdoors yesterday and it is COMPLETELY different. I could seriously only run for 5 minutes without stopping. I could run an hour on the treadmill without stopping. My plan is to do the C25K, but instead of taking it week by week, I'll do it for the day. i.e. Day 1 will be Week 1, Day 2 will be Week 2, etc. Hopefully I can skip a few, so I can be ready for my 5k this Saturday.

Totally ambitious but I'm sure you can do it. You don't have to,run the whole 5k, you just have to finish.

you're totally right! I'm ambitious but not realistic lol. After work I did week 2 and I am sooo sore. It's like starting to run all over again. My shins hurt, my breathing was all out of whack. It's actually disheartening because I thought I had this down! So I may put off the 5k. It really depends how I feel on Friday.

Hell NO!  You are going to go on the 5K.  No one says you have to be glorious and run like you're a pro.  It's an experience.  You may love it or hate it but most of all, you'll be proud that you did it.  I think either Dreamweaver or Hezzie ran it and so can you.  Pace well and run slow.  sprint when you have the energy and walk when you get tired.  I hope you do it.  It'll be a milestone you'll never forget!

 

If I didn't decide to do something about my weight, I'd still be 37lbs heavier, tired and fat.  Go for it and don't look back.

This made my morning! I spoke to my downer of a cousin this morning and she said that it's too early for me to do it. Thank you for the encouragement :) You're right, I should do it and I will.

I ran a 5k at 263lbs. But to be honest I did train outside for about 3 months. You can definitely do it tho. Running on the treadmill isnt the same AT ALL but it doesn't mean you can't do it :)

To be honest, at 263lbs, it would be mandatory that you trained for awhile. I think the risk of serious injury is a definite possibility at that weight or even a cardiac infarction. At 218, I would not have gone on a 5k either but at 180, I would try without training outside. I know I can run although not fast without feeling dizzy or walk, there are runners/walkers of all ages at those 5ks. There was a 101yr old marathon runner at the last one in my area.

LOL! I'm sorry but I had to laugh when I read this. Mandatory? According to whom? I certainly wasn't asked if I had been training b4 I ran my 5k. And I finished strong with no cardiac infarction lol Weight has NOTHING to do with fitness level. The most important thing is the condition that ur heart is in. I weigh more than most of my friends do and I can promise you that I can blow them away in any fitness challenge. I just had this conversation with my nutritionist, who is very fit and active, and she agreed. You CAN be fat and fit. I am on my way to a healthier weight but I know I am the most healthy I have ever been in my life.

AT 218lbs, I would have dropped dead 1 minute into a 5k.  My weight had everything to do with what I was able to do and not and all the health issues that were there as well.  I am less tired that I am no longer supporting 37lbs that I used to carry around. It was restricting my movement and the speed to which I was moving. You are able to do run the 5k at 263lbs, all the power to you.  That's awesome! That's more than what I can do now. I do think however, your fitness level is an exception and not the rule.  

 

I was not in that same situation and neither are the friends I have who are overweight by 75+lbs.

Sorry that I didnt flip the image but this is me when i ran my 5k. I def don't think I'm the exception or anything special. If ur determined to do something, u'll do it, end of. If u dont want to do it u'll find a million excuses. Its really that simple but ppl like to complicate it more than it needs to be.

That is awesome and to me you are exceptional.  It may be all about determination to you but to many it is a physical barrier.  I had difficulty breathing once I reached 218lbs which prompted me to take action.  I would not have even considered running because my muscles were having problems supporting the additional weight.  My agility. flexibilty and movement had been compromised. 

 

At work, we have a lot of overweight people (sendentary, govt office job), I can ask 30 people and none would consider running a 5k as a possibility in their current condition.

 

After 37lbs shed, I can say I'd be able to run/walk a 5k because I do it every day on the treadmill at 7-8% incline.  I know I would not be able to run its entirety but I know I'd be able to complete it without having a heart attack or faint from lack of oxygen.  I'm 60% there, another 30+/- lbs and I'll reach my ideal weight and size once more.

You're awesome!!!!!  Have you ran any other races after this? If so, how did it differ? I know you lost a lot of weight, so do you feel that it's slightly easier?

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
