    Listen to what Udog says. It's important to keep your goal manageable. You need to believe you can do it.

    Plus it's very possible that 120 will be unhealthy for her. Right now, we have no way of knowing that.

    Some of it will depend on bone structure, though. If you have a larger (or even denser) frame, 120 will be too thin at 5'4". If you have a really petite frame, 120 may still be a bit much. I'd aim for the higher end of the target unless you're just really tiny.

    I'm 5' 3", but I'm very small-framed. Even five pounds really shows up on me. Everyone's different.

    I missed hearing about your guys' workouts so much while I was internet-less in Trier! Glad to see you joining us, Grayscale.

    Kyueii, I feel your pain about the mile. I have been too scared to check if I have gotten any faster at all after attempts at jogging for 6 months.*

    I got to a scale today and found out I've gained 5 and a half pounds on vacation so far, and I'm still not leaving 'til Tuesday! Damn you German hospitality and all the cake and the cream.

    Wed: Amsterdam walking tour (Van Gogh museum!), no exercise routine. Changing locations all the time gives me an excuse to be lazy and not work out a new workout time and route for each new place. Food = bad.

    Thurs: Location change to Trier! Some more touristy walking, but the cold made me so lazy, and couldn't sleep well due to staying with lots of high school students at this ex-dorm sort of thing. Food = no comment, though I did turn down the opportunity to have deep fried anything at a Belgium fast food place.

    Fri: Trier self-walking tour! No exercise. Slightly better eating, if you ignore the ice cream sundae. Why are there six ice cream places on every block in Germany?

    Sat: Driving along the Mosel river, looking at vineyards, arrive back at Springe. How is it that sitting in a car for 7 hours still doesn't make one less hungry at meal times? Still time to salvage the day, though eating hasn't been too bad, other than the two cups of coffee.

    My only health consolation is that I have no boozed it up at all on vacation other than a glass of champagne. Alcohol has lots of non-nutritious calories, right?

    *When I get back home, I hope to take a before snapshot of my exercise goals. Timed mile, number of situps, other things- got to be brave enough to see how I am before I can improve!

    I also have a tentative workout schedule for myself once school starts (the 21st). Weekdays I will have a 50 minute dance class two days a week, I'll try to get away for hiking weekday (probably Friday), and night jogging the remaining two days. For weekends, I'll have one jog day and then one new random exercise day where I will try out various things- swimming, ice skating, roller blading, and maybe try and convince my friends to play tennis with me or something.

    Well, I did not make it to the gym today because it opens at 12:30 pm and closes at 7:00 p.m. Alas, I was unable to make it. But on a positive note, I cleaned the house from 12:00-7:00 (just stopped ugh) doing all kinds of shit like cleaning windows, vacuuming, sweeping floors, scrubbing the tub, cleaning the furniture, organizing shit, doing laundry. No breaks except to drink some water now and again and go to the ladies'. So that's work, lemme tell ya.

    Tomorrow the gym opens at 10 a.m. So I'm going to the gym first thing tomorrow before I hit the next round of cleaning tomorrow, which will probably take me just as long.

    That's gotta count for something.

    Calorie intake so far: 1000

    but I'm kind of scared because he told me we were going out to eat today, which will probably make that 2000.

    Haphazard, it really has a lot to to with your frame/body type. If you take two 5' 4 tall individuals, one might look absolutely perfect at 108 lbs but for the other individual they might look emaciated (ribs sticking out). Also, 132+ lbs may make one individual look fairly overweight but another person could really fit and slim. It is not a good idea to look at general weight of a particular height as a rule of thumb but just as a guideline.

    For me, if I looked at the height/weight charts, I would probably considered "underweight" but my current weight is what is proportional to my body frame/ body type. Also, maybe you can just aim for a weight that makes you the most optimal with your body (not just a number) but at a realistic goal? That weight varies for each individual.

    I definitely would have preferred going to the gym, but I think I kicked some major butt anyway with seven hours of intensive cleaning!

    I don't understand the charts. I'm definitely more one of these



    than one of these

    540A, though? That's early! If you figure out something to motivate yourself to wake up that early, please share it!

    it is called an alarm clock! :yim_rolling_on_the_

    lol... seriously though, focus on the advantages:

    - you get your training done first thing in the day and therefore it always gets done, cant get missed because of something that came up after work

    - once you get used to waking up that early and hitting the gym, eventually you just naturally begin to feel more energetic at that time of day, leads to better productivity at work too.

    - less people at the gym, your time is better utilized because you never waste time standing around waiting to use equipment



    it is saturday, about... 11 minutes 1 hour till noon. i slept in today... damnit but come monday, watch out! off to the gym now.

    <anyone else do this on the treadmill?
