Getting summer ready. PART 2 - June


Now we are in June I thought it would be a good idea to update our goals. I lost 4lbs in May and we lost over 2 stone combined!

This month as well as focusing on weight I think it would be beneficial to focus on other things such as inches and bf%.

Happy slimming ladies

Currently weigh - 137lbs
Want to weigh - 133lbs
So I would like to lose 4lbs, but I would like to overall tone up and have a bf% of around 22% going in to July. I would also like to fit into a size 10 comfortably.


Spoiler
In exactly 5 weeks it will be the 1st of June and I wanted to start a thread to help me with motivation to get summer ready (motivation for me and others if they are interested). I hope some of you ladies want to join me because even though I have been working really hard the past few months I am starting to lose motivation now. If you do want to join me then I could update the front page with how much you want to lose in those 5 weeks and we can do weekly updates on progress. I'm going to give myself new challenges each week - either focused on physical activity or eating which others can join if they so wish. Anyone interested?

Woohoo!! I will be the first to join you. You have worked very hard recently, so well done you!

I am not entirely sure what I weigh right now, but for me, it's more about fitness abd toning up than weight. Ideally, I'd want to be 9st or under, and the last time I weighed myself I was 9st 6lbs, so not a lot to lose really.

I plan to use the striiv app to track my steps daily, and tone up with a postnatal Pilates DVD, though I haven't bought one just yet! Walking and breastfeeding seem to be working for weight loss so far. Oh, and carrying around a clingy 10-week-old can't hurt!

Hi there, i'd like to join in too!

I'm halfway through the 30 day shred and i'm pleased with the results so far. Here are my stats...

Today's weight: 146lbs (24.9 bmi)
Ideal weight: 133lbs (22.8 bmi)

I'd like to see what everyone else is doing cause i need to choose something to continue with after the 30 day shred is over.

I'm definitely more for toning and take regular measurements but I would like to get my weight down as well. I want to find out my body fat percentage as well, I'm aiming for low 20s. I also have pictures from the beginning of the year and before I started Ripped to post when I feel up to it!

30DS really is fantastic, RI30 is similar but a bit more difficult, I couldn't have managed it without doing the shred so I fully recommend it. I plan to do 6 week 6 pack once I've finished RI30 to work on my core a bit more. I also do zumba most days and find that really effective for calorie burn.


For some additional information on my diet/exercise plan - I don't diet per se but I use myfitnesspal to track my calories and have lost 21lbs since I started tracking at the beginning of February. I don't restrict my food in any way but by calories, if I want something I earn back the calories so I can eat it. I drink a large glass of water before every meal as well to fill me up and drink 2 pints on a morning. Oh and as well as zumba and RI30 I'm also doing the 30 day squat challenge.

Trying to decide what challenge to set myself this week!

Wow, 21 lbs is brill! I've used myfitnesspal too, but always get slack with it. How do you enter your 30DS into it though?

I love your water tips. I need to up my intake, so thanks for that! I'm up for joining you in a challenge!

To be completely honest I just entered 30DS as 100 calories as I couldn't work out how else to input it and didn't want to overestimate how much I was burning. I do the same with RI30. I'm thinking of some sort of ab/core challenge as I'm already doing a lower body one. I hate the taste of water but I feel like it's really helping to curb my appetite.

So, these are the apps I'm going to use from today:
striiv - to count my steps throughout the day
My Fitness Pal - to track what I'm eating
iDrated - to track my water intake
Run Keeper - in case I want to do a little run (but I don't think I will!)
