Weight Loss Weekly

The gals and I are shaking things up a bit with Weight Loss Weekly. While we love hearing each others take's on different issues, we felt it wasn't especially action based blogging, and we're all about the action!

In order for us to get up and get doing we thought we'd pick a theme and then set our own individual goals within that theme and talk strategy and such.

This week's idea is scintillating, it's sassy and of course it's supersonic, it's exercise, yippeee!

Don't forget to check out what the gals have got to say on this one.

"My goal this week is to walk for 20 minutes for 4 days this week. It doesn't seem like a huge goal, but considering it's been a month (or longer) since I've accomplished this feat, I'm a little nervous!" read more at Joie de vivre: a amateur gourmet's guide

Sunny "If you read last week's WLW post, you probably know how much of a slacker I've been when it comes to exercise! But I've set two goals this week..." Keep reading at That Extra 20 Pounds

For me exercise comes and goes, I go through stages where I feel like I've got it all worked out, and then for no obvious reason I hit a wall and just can't seem to get into it. I've smashed up against said wall these last few weeks and I'm determined to get out of my rut and back on the wagon. You know that feeling, when you pull on your jeans and think "hmmm something's not right here......" Well I'm getting that vibe and I need to snap out of it. An upcoming trip to the UK is the motivation, I do not want to get on that plane feeling flabby and disappointed.

My goal this week is to do some kind of exercise each day. It doesn't have to be formal sweatercise but just something, movement, action, doing.

In some areas of my life I am a crazy planner, but I've never tried to apply this to exercise so this week I am going to plan out my exercise and see if that helps. Fig of fitfig does this and I've often admired her plans and wondered if that would work for me, well wonder no more here we go.

Monday: Elliptical trainer 30min
Tuesday: Personal training with the girlies
Wednesday: 1hr walk with the Luscious L
Thursday: Yoga
Friday: Walk to work 1hr
Saturday: Elliptical trainer 30min
Sunday: Bush walk

So there you have it the happy plan. With it all written down so neatly like that, I feel like I'm sure to get it done, let's see.

How do you make sure you get your exercise done and dusted week to week? Have you got it all planned out? Or do you just let it flow?


  1. Sounds like you got some good workouts in for the week. Good job!

  2. Great goals for the week!! You have something for everyday... wow!

  3. Hooray! I found it helpful this morning to plan out not only how I was going to exercise, but when. When my hubby got out of bed, I knew I had planned to do my walk in the morning and it helped get me out of bed (my head was still conspiring against me though!). Once I was out of the house, I was glad to be out and now I know I accomplished my goal for the day! Good luck Bernie! We can do it!

  4. I started doing some yoga asanas each morning. I do it as soon as I get up. Not long, just 15 or 20 minutes. That's really all I have time for before work. But if I get up a bit late and tell myself I'll do it in the evening, or on the weekend if I have a cup of tea first (my favourite!), I just never do it. So, for me, I have to do it as soon as I get up or it's not gonna happen.

  5. Hi everyone, thanks for the encouragement, it really does help. I agree with the morning being best too. It also gives you such a good feeling all day knowing that you've done your exercise already.
