I'm doing a lot more interval training lately, and going into the aerobic zone of 70-80%. My goal is to burn 1600+ calories a week, and do 200+ minutes of cardio. This will change when I reach my goal, and I'll post my plan again then. It'll be about 100 mins of cardio and 4 days of weights.

Personal Information:
Live in Duluth, MN now. Originally from the U.P. of Michigan.

I teach 5th grade in the Hermantown School District.

My wife is a RN after working hard over the past two years in an accelerated program. We both are going to work out. Things are good, but I need to get motivated and determined again.

Step one- get to the fitness center again! It's been too long! My brother-in-law is going to work out there too.

Other Information:
My family means the world to me. I am an extremely positive person.

I see you are doing good tracking. Great. I'm amazed you can tolerate 1200 calories a day. I think I would be hungry all the time if I did that. I'm impressed with your discipline but I wonder if you can keep that up long term. I lose about three pounds a week eating 1800 calories a day. I can also eat a larger volume of food by going mostly vegetarian and light on the sweets. I expect to be able to report a nice drop in weight when I weigh in tomorrow. Each person goes at this differently. You are doing great! Keep it up!

I just ran across a good article on resiliency for re-starting weight loss goals. The third page has six practical pointers. What do you think?

Great. Welcome back. You have helped me stay motivated in the past. Let's do it again. I would also like to lose 18 pounds. I'll try to match you pound for pound. Deal? I weighed in at 189 this morning. UGH! My goal will be to get to 171.

Thanks for stopping by and checking on me Russell- My wife and I are just getting started again.

I am going to be burning off some excess fat and also lifting weights too when I start out. I want to lose 18 more pounds.

I also am interested in the effects of the Nutribullet. We got one from the inlaws (I didnt even know). I plan to have one a day and see how this makes me feel.

I'll try to get on here daily. I'm going to workout later. Keep at it. You can do it!

I haven't heard from you for awhile. How's it going? What are your current goals. I got off track for awhile - dealing with a lot of stress but I'm getting engaged again. I want to get my weight back under 180 asap. How about you? What are your current goals?
