Anyone just starting Body for Life in the new year (2012)? I'd love to bounce ideas off each other!
Just started yesterday!
I would love to join this group, Im starting on the 14th. I started my own business 6 years ago and work from home and believe it or not I've found it harder to follow a regular eating programme than when I was working full time, so now Ive got about 50lbs to lose.
I dont belong to a gym so Im going to be working out at home, Ive got some free weights and stretch bands I can use but does anyone think I should get any other equipment?
I would love to have the support and if i can encourage anyone along the way I will do my best!
Cant wait to get started!!!
Starting tomorrow 1/9. We are in a biggest loser challenge witty some friends over the next 12 weeks. Would love to have a good online support system.
Good luck Bev! I am starting out on Monday. I have been a stay-at-home mom for the past few years and it is tough keeping up with a good exercise routine. We can help support each other!!!
I think it's SO helpful to have that support! I know I need it too- and really benefit from it!!!
I lost 40 pounds a few years ago and they somehow found me again- and I have some work to do to get the body I know I can have. I would love to be part of your support system! The more ideas...the better! :)
You'll do great!!!
Hi Bev!!! I'm going to try to do some of my cardio at home due to time away from kids, and working full time. If I'm home I can at least supervise the kids... I did sign up at a gym yesterday- and I have that available to me! :)
Do you have a bench? I do think it's really helpful. Music too- make sure you have some music that moves you! :)
Keep in touch and have FUN!
Happy first week of BFL!!! Wait till you see yourself in the mirror in 12 weeks! :)
I started last week and would love to join the group! I am also working out from home, I have a barbell and free weights that I've been working with.
Well let's keep in touch so we can bounce ideas off each other! For now- do any of you want to share your first day workout plan? I'm really not sure what I can do since I haven't weight trained in so long...
Hi ..starting today :) have done BFL several times never completed 12 weeks :(
will do it this time ! GOOD LUCK !
I just started today! I just taped my before pics in my "BFL journal" and am seriously disgusted. Seriously. I did BFL 6 years ago to lose baby weight and had great success. In the last 6 years I continued being active and working out, but also I've also become a pescatarian and eat WAY TOO MANY carbs. So here I am, 15 pounds heavier...
Michelle- I did UB today, at home, which limits the options. I do belong to a gym but can't get there this week, so I planned all of my workouts at home. This is what I did today:
Chest: Dumbbell Bench Press x2
Shoulders: Dumbbell Press, Side Raises
Back: 1 Arm Dumbbell Rows x2
Tri's: Seated Dumbbell Curls, Hammer Curls
Bi's: Dumbbell Extensions, Dips
I used 5, 10, and 12 pound weights (that's all I have) and mixed them up as needed per exercise.
I'm excited to stay in touch and see how everyone is doing!
I'm in the same position - lost 50 lbs. over a year ago, and while I haven't regained all of it, most of it has come back. I have the Body-for-Life for Women book and read the whole book - just starting on the plan today. Definitely could use the on-line support, so I'm happy to find some other Newbies!
Starting my 2nd week today. I went through the first week with a personal trainer (he is the one who started me on the program). There is something to be said for a trainer who sets you up for the future instead of someone that wants you under their constant watch. Wish everyone luck!
I'd be glad to help keep people motivated!
