Get Hawt, Week 5 Round-up

All right, this week we blogged about what’s going well… Let’s see if I can get everyone’s posts rounded up.

I’ll start with my partner, Jen McCown. She has adjusted her expectations some, made new graphs, and is feeling more ok with how things are going. She’s trying to add some cardio into her routine, as she feels that’s when she notices the most difference.

Next is Yanni Robel. She talks about her need for routines and goals. She talks about making sure your goals are smart, and finding a reason to do whatever it is you want to do. While Yanni had a rest week, she is getting ready to start training for her next half marathon.

Next up, fellow Minnesotan, Tracy McKibben. This guy is a machine. He’s been braving some of the coldest days to get out and walk. He’s been making small changes that are making a big difference in his energy level and eating habits. He was even able to turn down soda for 3 days and a cheeseburger. Oh, and while his blog post did not mention his weight loss, he posted on twitter that he was down 2 lbs.

Geek Girl, Stacia Misner talks about why this effort is more than just about the scale. She talks about other ways to measure progress – namely measurements, and BMI. While the scale is a useful tool, it’s progress over the long range, using a variety of measurements that are what matter.

Our second guy of the week, Jeff Rush chimes in with a great weight loss. It’s great to see more men joining in the action! He says he doesn’t look or feel much different, but 21 lbs lost is a pretty big difference.

Next to mention is Lauren Long. She’s new to our blog party. She’s working on training for her first 10K. She’s got goals, put ’em in her calendar, and is going strong so far! She’s also working on the 100 Pushups and 200 Situps programs.

We also have Rebecca Mitchell. Since she is pregnant, her goals are a bit different. She mostly on the listening to the body and eating what it wants plan. Since foods she previously liked are affecting her morning sickness, and foods she previously couldn’t eat are what she craves, she’s going with it.

I think those are all the posts I saw in my comments box and #gethawt column on twitter. If I missed you, please link to your page in the comments section!

May the Hawt continue…
