Week 1- Started on 1/30/12 on my own
This is perfect for me! I started on 1/30/12 deciding to cut out soda as much as possible, hopefully completely. I have a VERY stressful job and was experiencing crazy headaches. So I need to do this simply to feel better and make myself healthier!
I made day 1-3 great, noone understood why this was such a big deal for me...well I DO NOT drink tea or coffee to soda is my caffeine all the way around. So only water or juice for me! Day 4 I had a one glass mistep! I stopped for dinner and accidently ordered soda not thinking...but after almost 6 hours in the car it was needed! So I drank that one cup and that was it! No refill!
Glad to be joining people who understand soda being cut out is hard!

Day 2 Synopsis
Day 2 went well....
I am on track, followed my diet plan and did 45 minutes of exercise (walking). Today is going fine too, except for a killer headache - I think from no soda/caffeine. Last night I played poker with friends and it was difficult to pass on all the sweets and other food that was available at the game.
I am planning on a bit more exercise tonight - perhaps an hour.

Four miles of walking/jogging the 1st and 2nd days. I think my time improved yesterday but messed up my timer start so not completely sure. Nothing for today. Its my break day. Plus running a 5K for the Make-A-Wish Foundation tomorrow so need the rest. I use the work 'running' loosly. Haha...more like walking 2.5K and running 2.5K. But hey this is my first 5K. A girls gotta start somewhere.

3 days in and going strong! I love reading about everyone else's success. Great motivation.
-First day, I played an hour of racquetball. That was a lot of fun, I've never played that before.
-Second day, I went to a rock climbing gym and spent two hours climbing. I didn't realize what a great workout that could be!
I just got home from work today... I think I'll either go for a run or try to find someone to play racquetball with again.
Keep it up fellow iFitnessers!
Edit: went with 1.5 hours of racquetball. I never knew what I was missing out on. Great fun and workout.

After posting a reply about having a goal in cardio, I noticed something interesting. The majority of the other cardio goals are also by people who are already doing cardio. Kind of curious about this. Would adding even more of something you're already doing actually help or hinder (like leading to a burn out)?
So this morning I changed the goal to do strength and flexibility, while still doing the regular cardio. By next Saturday I want to be able to do 18x2 pushups, and be more flexible.
Today was 15&12 pushups as a benchmark
(Are the daily updates supposed to be in this thread, or the other threads?)

Keeping it up.
Finished my "rest" week of p90X tonight. Not really a rest in that the workouts actually take longer than the typical weeks on average, but finished just the same. Looking forward to next week now. Thinking I'd love to get involved in rock climbing and martial arts after looking at ideas from what others have suggested. Things to consider...

That being said though, without a strong knowledge of exercise science, or a knowledgable personal trainer, it is difficult to find that exact point of maximum efficiency by yourself. So for most, it is extremely beneficial just to get started and work into a routine where you are measuring your progress. After a month or two, you'll begin to really feel when you can go harder.
There is also the mental issue though. If you start out with something too hard, you can definitely burn out easily. In that case, it is a better idea just to get started with something small, measure your progress and work your way up.

Will post details. My starting weight is: 70kgs.
Let's do this!
P.S. I'm already a week in though and been trying my best to go 5 times a week.
Here's day (sorta) one :

Week One - Saturday!
I am still on track... I've lost a few lbs, but I prefer not to pay too much attention to that on a day to day basis, but rather that the trend continues.... I plan to track my weight on a weekly basis.
I am taking my dog with me to exercise today! He is in great shape, but always enjoys a long walk. He is the one on the right (his brother is on the left)...
and he likes the snow too!
