Goal(s) Week of Dec. 4:
1) Run at least 3 miles, 3 times this week
3) Gym 3x this week (with light cardio)
4) Goal weight at end of week: MY GOAL WEIGHT!

Results:
1) TBD
2) TBD
3) TBD

Notes as I start a new week:
Today was monthly measurements day. So far I've lost 11.4% body fat, and I'm 1.5 pounds from my goal weight. I'm kind of loving how I look in the mirror and am actually seeing some of the results of my weight training efforts--results that are more obvious because I lave a smaller layer of fat hiding my muscles. I'm motivated!

I have been yoyo-ing with these final five pounds, so this week is about all about shedding those final 1.5 pounds and clinching my goal weight.

As much as I sometimes moan about having to go for a run or to the gym, I ALWAYS feel good about exercising afterwards. I need to remember that feeling when I don't want to leave bed in the morning, or if the last thing I want to do after a long day at work is to go hit the gym. Seriously, that post-workout feeling dwarfs the "but I don't wanna" whiny feelings anyday.

Goal(s) Week of Nov. 27:
1) Run at least 3 miles, 3 times this week
3) Gym 3x this week (with light cardio)
4) Goal weight at end of week: 196

Results:
1) Failure: 2 out of 3 runs completed
2) Success!
3) Success!

Notes as I start a new week:
Thanksgiving has come and gone this week, and despite an expected and temporary mini bump in weight due to the festivities, I did very well with my exercise and pretty good (considering) with my nutrition.

This week I want to sustain my exercise goals and focus on simple, clean eating (and paleo, of course). As I approach my weight goal, I want this to be a back to the basics, calm, and introspective week.

I've found myself more and more interested in training for a Tough Mudder or Spartan Race. I am no where near the fitness level I need to be to hold my head high while trying to complete one yet...but that may be a nice next challenge in phase 2 of my journey. I am also increasingly intrigued by Cross Fit. I've always been a bit wary about it--it is extreme and (from what I gather) a little cult-ish. Still the physique I've seen on those who commit to it is pretty darn impressive. Plus, it would be fun to be able to do all those wacky exercises.

But, again, this is NOT intended to be a week for extremism for me.�I look forward to reflecting on my progress that my current plan has made possible.

Goal(s) Week of Nov. 20:
1) Run at least 3 miles, 3 times this week
3) Gym 3x this week (with light cardio)
4) Goal weight at end of week: 197

Results:
1) Goal exceeded!
2) Goal met!
3) 198--but not bad given the Thanksgiving holiday!

Notes as I start a new week:
I can't believe it's Thanksgiving week already! We're hosting for the first time this year (just one other couple is joining us). I've got the turkey ordered from a nearby farm, and am going to the grocery store today to make all the accoutrements.

This week was pretty much a good one. I went out and partied hard on Friday night. I kinda needed it...but man did it make a waste of my Saturday. I "lost" 4 pounds of water weight from dehydrating myself...and of course gained that back.�Still, my fitness routine is improving.

Speaking of which, I ran my first 5K today. I finished under my goal time--and didn't let the cold weather and strong winds get me down (too much). Today was a huge milestone on the health and fitness front.

Notes as I start a new week:
I'm very late entering my weekly goals blog. Work has been crazy since the election (I work for a think tank in DC), so I've had to buckle down and really focus on that. I missed my exercise goals last week and,as a result, didn't see the results I was aiming for. I'm back on track so far this week...kinda crushing it, in fact.

I run my first 5K on Sunday. I couldn't even imagine saying that out loud back in June when I was 71 pounds heavier (71!!!). I am excited, not so much because it's a far distance or anything too strenuous, but because it really marks a milestone in my fitness and overall health. I feel like I've crossed a threshold into a new life and it feels wonderful.

We are hosting Thanksgiving next week. I finally put my foot down with family and let them know that we would alternate Christmases between my husband's and my family, but that I was done travelling for both holidays. I invited them to join us for turkey day, but so far it just us and another couple--and 18 pounds of turkey! Good thing we're paleo in our house, so it won't go to waste. I'm looking forward to it.

Have a great (rest of your) week.

Notes as I start a new week:
I am excited that I've lost 68 pounds in my first six months of my new diet/exercise/lifestyle plan. However, the past few weeks, for reasons both justified and not, I've been gaining and losing the same few pounds. I'm still down overall, and I'm determined not to beat myself up over a pound or two.

I've had a helluva cold this past week, so I was really taking it easy on the exercise front. I'm down to some light congestion and sniffles, so I'm going to start running again today, and hitting the gym this week. I have no work travel this week, so it's a good one to refocus on all aspects of my plan.

Also, by my estimates I am about 2-3 weeks from hitting my goal weight. I plan to spend some time this week researching REALISTIC toning/muscle building routines, and how best to adjust my calories to achieve a more athletic build. I'm 36 years old and a major goal of mine was to be at the best physical shape of my life when I'm 40. So, in a way, the weight loss phase was just part one of what will be a much longer--and ongoing--journey.

It's going to be a great week. I hope it is for all of you as well! Cheers.

Goal(s):
1) Run at least 3 miles, 1 times this week (if I'm feeling better)
3) Focus on getting rest, feeling better, and great nutrition
4) Goal weight at end of week: 201

Results:
1) Nope -- too sick
2) Done!
3) Done!

Notes as I start a new week:
I'm writing this on Wednesday, not Sunday--so that should give you a sense of how my week has been going! I had a work trip for 2 days last week in NYC, and another one this week on Thursday and Friday. My exercise routine has been thrown off schedule, and I had more that a couple of "cheats" last week. Actually the last couple of weeks (due to visitors, heavy meals, lots of cocktails and wine, etc.) I've been gaining and losing the same 5 pounds. The good news this week is that I seem to be beyond those 5 pounds and am not only 8 pounds from my goal weight.

I've been fighting/avoiding a pretty nasty cold all week, so have been taking it easy on the workout front. I've just been too achy, congested, and tired to want to force myself to the gym or on a run. I have been focusing and sticking to my diet and have been seeing some results on that front. Once I get back from this work trip I should be able to get some good rest this weekend to try and kick this cold once and for all. I have my first 5K set for Nov. 20th and I want to be sure I can get some good runs in before that!

I avoided the candy on Halloween...which was no small feat. So, in summary, lots of mini victories, a few set backs, and a refreshed commitment to feeling better and achieving my goals!

Come hell or high water, I'm getting this thread going again!

Goal(s), week of October 22, 2016:
1) Run at least 3 miles, 2 times this week
3) Weights 3 times this week ( plus 40 minutes of cardio)
4) Goal weight at end of week: 202

Results:
1) TBD
2) TBD
3) TBD

Notes as I start a new week:
My 6 visiting family members have left the house, and now I can get back on track. We have had a constant stream of visitors for over 3 months. While I LOVE hosting (and it is one of the reasons we bought such a big house)...it is exhausting and totally kills my nutrition plans. The good news is that those "cheat pounds" tend to drop quickly once I get back on track.

While we have no company planned for a few weeks, I do have some work travel coming up this week (two days, one night in NYC). It's easy to stay on plan when I'm traveling, except for work dinners and special events (that catered food is always full of butter and other naughtiness). Getting in a proper work out can also be hard--but one can run anywhere! Also, I've asked my assistant to start making sure there's a decent gym in the hotels she books me in...so I'm trying to eliminate the excuses.

We have had a few beautiful, crisp fall days down here that take me back to my childhood in upstate NY. I'm reminded why I love this season so much--the beautiful leaves, that undeniable autumn smell in the air, and--perhaps my favorite part--SWEATER WEATHER! Enjoy, everyone.

Goal(s):
1) Do some light jogging (3:1) at least once this week.

Misc:
I had a nasty summer chest cold this past week which kept me from meeting some of the activity goals that I set for myself. However, I still blasted through the mini-plateau that I was confronting by focusing extra diligently on my diet, getting lots of sleep, and increasing my water intake. I exceeded my weight loss goal and hit a huge milestone--40 pounds lost! I'm feeling good and empowered heading into this week...even though there's still a little bit of chest cold lingering in there. Onward!

2) Take at least one high intensity yoga classes. Try a a session from Down Dog app too.
3) Gym 3 times with split workout. Remain at 40 minutes of cardio beforehand.

So I've hit another mini-plateau. I haven't gained, but I am stuck at 235 and 35 pounds lost since my June 5 start date. This week is all about busting through that plateau. It's going to be an incredibly stressful week at work...so I need to be extra strict on my nutrition and workout commitments. I'm getting excited for out trip to Shenandoah in a couple of weeks--maybe I'll get some new hiking boots as a reward if I hit all my goals this week.

Week of July 31st, 2016

Goal(s):
1) Don't freak out over taking Monday off for your leg.
2) Jog for at least 30 minutes twice, using 3 on 1 off jog-walk intervals. Run 1.25 (or more) miles nonstop before beginning the walk-run intervals.
3) Walk Casually for at least 15 minutes on three+ other days.

Results:
1) TBD
2) TBD
3) TBD


Misc: Nothing to exciting's going on. I need to get started with a lot of memorization stuff for my nursing program, which starts back up in about a month. This week I'm pretty busy running to random doctors for standard stuff. I'll try to walk to at least two of them, and (mostly) take care of my second goal through that.

GOALS WEEK OF JULY 31

Goal(s):
1) Try doing some light jogging (3:1) at least once this week to see if my knees can take it.
2) Take 2 high intensity yoga classes.
3) Gym 3 times with new split workout. Add 10 minutes to cardio.
4) Goal weight at end of week: 232

Results:
1) Did about an hour 3:1 split, no knee pain!
2) Took one of two.
3) Started new split, got two out of three workouts in.
4) 235. I've hit a bit of a plateau, but my workout and nutrition diligence ran into a roadblock due to some social commitments later this week. Time to get back on track!

Misc:
I'm feeling great since discovering this morning that I've made it more than halfway to my goal. This is a huge milestone for me--and I met it in just under two months! My digestion issues are much improved. I'm going to need new pants very soon. It's interesting that other people haven't really noticed yet, or at least not said anything (with the exception of one co-worker). But then again, I suppose it's awkward to call out someone else's weight, so I get it. It is interesting when people learn of my weight loss efforts and comment along the lines of "what do YOU have to lose weight for?" Ummm....maybe because I've gained over 60 pounds of fat in 3 years and it's ridiculous?! I guess being as tall as I am (6'4") I can "hide" that weight better than some others, but sheesh. I think that, moving forward, I won't hesitate to tell people I know and care about when I notice their weight loss--it never hurts to hear those words!

1) Jog for at least 30 minutes three times, using 3 on 1 off jog-walk intervals. Run 1.25 (or more) miles nonstop before beginning the walk-run intervals.
2) Walk Casually for at least 15 minutes on three+ other days.

Results:
1) Success. Although My last run of the week was pretty bad, and I didn't finish it up entirely in 3-1 intervals. But all things considered, I'll still call it a success.
2) Failure. I didn't walk enough this week :(.


Misc: Had some bad food the other night (ordered out pizza). On the other hand, it's also the first time in about a month I've had either pizza or a non-water drink with sugar in it, and once a month isn't too bad.

Am also thinking about picking up a small one person tent for hiking.... not entirely sure how much I'd use it, despite a desire to.

1) Try doing some light jogging (3:1) a couple of times this week to see if my knees can take it.
2) Take 2 high intensity yoga classes.
3) Gym 3 times (cardio/arms; cardio/legs; cardio/core and back).
4) Goal weight at end of week: 237

Results:
1) I didn't try jogging this week.
2) Done
3) Done
4) Goal exceeded-- down to 235.7!

Misc:
Since adding more exercise I have busted through my latest plateau. I am down 30 pounds in 49 days (I started this piece of my journey on June 5)--which feels awesome! I've adjusted my weight goal down a little bit to the weight I was at when I felt the healthiest, and which more closely aligns with recommended BMI levels (195)--but I know I can do it! I had set it higher before thinking I could never do this....but I'm feeling much more empowered now.

GOALS WEEK OF JULY 17

Goal(s):
1) Heal my right knee, or make a doctor's appointment if not significantly improved.
2) Take at least 2 Vinyasa yoga classes. TRACK IT!!
3) Gym 3 times (cardio/arms; cardio/legs; cardio/core and back). TRACK IT!!

Results:
1) Knee is much, if not totally better. No brace and no Aleve used for several days now.
2) Took just one yoga class this week--but it was a tough one and I'm glad to be finding those teachers at my local studio that I truly prefer.
3) Success!

Misc:
I seem to have hit a bit of a plateau in what had been some pretty exciting results. I'm adding more exercise and more varied activities to try to mix it up. I am feeling pretty good about where my diet is for now. I have noticed a positive--though not complete--change with my longstanding GI issues.

Misc: Went out again last night, and drank a bit much again. I somehow feel better about it because my Garmin told me I burned a bunch of calories stupidly running around and dancing..... how's that for finding self-excuses ~,~;

Last week was good though, I'm pleased I made my three running days. I don't think I'll be so hungover again that I can't do it on Monday this time, so it looks like a step in the right direction (if only a small one).

I'm not really sure how to up my running - I'm really breathless after 1.25 miles at 5mph. I'll just try doing that everyday to start this week. Maybe next week I'll be able to push it up to 1.4 or something. I don't think it's realistic to try pushing it up just now though.

@Alexis - Yeah, don't get too hung up on the scale. I mean, trends over time maybe. But not week to week. I "apparently" gained like 4.7 pounds this week from my surprising drop to ~140 the week before. I suspect the actual truth lies somewhere in between both numbers though.

Thanks, VALELI, for starting a new discussion thread!

Week of July 10, 2016

Goal(s):
1) Run on elliptical two times this week for at least 30 minutes
2) Walk or jog/walk 4 days this week
3) Lift twice this week

Results:
1) Success! Thursday and Saturday, ran on elliptical. Been trying to switch up machines when working out at the gym. As much as I like walking/running outside, it's been too darn hot.
2) Success! Walked two days this week and did two days of interval training.
3) Success! Actually lifted 3 days this week - Sunday, Thursday and Saturday

I agree with DCFELLA - sometimes you have to let loose and have fun. As long as it doesn't derail you from your goals and you can return to them with focus!

Weekly edit: As much exercise as I got in this week and as well as I feel like I've been doing, I'm up 1.5 lbs today for my weekly weigh-in. Not only that, did my monthly measurements today and only saw a small change in two of the measurements. What gives? Feel like I've been working hard and eating well (most of the time) and yet these numbers aren't changing.

I really like your attitude about indulging. Life is something to be celebrated and lived to its fullest. Sometimes that means breaking the "rules" from time to time!

Week of July 10

Goal(s):
1) Heal my right knee, which I strained while running last week. Switch from Running 5K challenge to Run/jog 5K challenge if knee allows.
2) Take at least 2 Vinyasa yoga classes.
3) Get at least 30 minutes of exercising at least 6 days this week--even if it's just walking or bicycling as my knee heals.

Results:
1) Knee is slightly better. Still strained but not sharp pain. Forgetting to wear my brace for a few meetings while running around NYC for work meetings re-strained it. Did not get to switch running/walking programs as a result. Did take some nice slow walks, and got tons of walking in during my NYC trip. Checked out a gym as well. If I can't simply run and walk, I need to find some other exercises and a gym/equipment can help with that.
2) I probably technically missed this a day or two. I need to better track exercise. I don't count things like my normal walking route or daily steps--only designated exercise time, and even that I need to get better at.

Misc:
This week might be a little bit of a challenge since I am travelling for two days (Weds-Thurs) for work. Plus, this stupid knee is slowing me down. My body clearly wasn't ready for the running challenge I was taking on (my left knee was strained a couple of weeks ago and took a good week to feel better...I'm hoping the right one is quicker to recover). It's a little humiliating to realize I have to "downgrade" to a walk/run challenge, but so be it. Better to take a little humility than continue to injure myself.

Goal(s):
1) Jog for at least 30 minutes three times, using 2 on one off walk-run intervals.
2) Walk Casually for at least 15 minutes on all other days.

Results:
1) Success! This one was close to slipping to thanks to me just walking on Monday instead of jogging, but used Saturday to get a last-minute weekly jog in instead.
2) Failed. I went on a huge 2 hour walk on Monday which was great, but didn't walk at all on Sunday because I felt too hung over. Lesson learned wasn't to not drink, but I should probably have one drink less next time.

Misc:
I went out on 6/9, and had a lot of fun. A lot of fun came with five drinks though, all of which must have had at least 200 calories. It's amazing how fast you can shoot up calories with drinking........

I don't really regret it, because I had a great time. It was the first time I'd really gone out in years, and I met some really nice people. And I'll probably do it again next weekend.

But as far as calories and health goes, it was definitely a set back.

It wasn't as /much/ of a set back as it could have been.... I've had alcohol issues in the past, so four drinks is (relatively) a step in the right direction for me. Relatively. But there's no way to pretend it was a healthy weekend.

I'm just going to try and not focus on this too much, and keep my focus on jogging when my exercise days start up again on Monday. It's a bad idea to really criticize stuff you genuinely enjoyed, after all. I know I shouldn't have.... but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy with it. That doesn't mean I can't keep putting out effort when I run though.... or even increasing my effort. 1200 calories or whatever is /not/ a make or break deal, and it's not going to give me cirrhosis unless I do it every week, forever and ever.

Ok Team. We haven't had a forum post here in almost a year, so I figure it's time to mix things up. I stole this topic and format from my "nurses everywhere" team, but figure it would be just as good here. Honestly, I'd prefer to talk about goals in a smaller forum anyways (we have more members technically I guess.... but way less active ones).

So.

Here's the template I would (encourage) you to copy. If you feel it simply doesn't work for you of course, feel free to alter it however you want. I'll post mine from last week, and then my new one for this Sunday.

Week of: July 03, 2016

Goal(s):
1) Jog for at least 25 minutes, at least 3 times, using 2 min on/2 min off walk-run intervals.
2) Walk casually for at least 15 minutes on at least two other days.
3) Learn how to freeze and thaw chicken breasts. For real.

Results:
1) Success - Ran three times, and was able to walk a bit less than originally planned.. Specifically, I was able to run the first mile without stopping/walking on day three, which was the first time I've done that in .... ages. I was really happy.
2) Success - Walked three times.
3) ... I guess some packs are already vacuum sealed and you can just toss in? But some aren't? I don't know how to handle the ones that aren't yet, but I got a sealed pack and now have three frozen chicken breasts. I'm going to put at least one of those into a stir fry on some day when I have no actual food on hand, so let's call this goal half-met.

(If anyone knows how to best deal with non-sealed chicken freezing though, do share.)

Misc Results:
I dropped weight from ~146 to ~142...... sort of unexpectedly. I hadn't expected to loose four pounds in a week. I don't know how much is real loss of course, a lot could just be water or whatever.

My concern is that I don't really want to drop below 140. I'd feel weird having a weight in the 130's, even though my BMI is technically still healthy until I drop below 126. So I either need to eat a bit more (healthy food), or exercise a bit less (no way). I guess.

I realize people here are tying to loose weight, so I hope this doesn't come across poorly. I'm a guy though, and 140 is a relatively low baseline weight. I need to shape up much more than I need to loose weight.
