Fitness Goals Challenge – Week 1

Fitness Goals Challenge – Week 1

meet my goals challenge

Welcome to Week 1 of the  Meet My Goals Challenge!  I am excited to get started sharing our goals each week and then seeing how everyone did meeting them.  I know I need some extra accountability and am hoping these 10 weeks will help us see some real progress and also form some new habits.  Bathing suit season starts next weekend, yikes!

Challenge Details

The intent of this 10 week challenge is to help you identify and commit to attainable weekly goals.   If you aren’t sure what goals you want to set for yourself, please don’t hesitate to take a look at the goals others are choosing and remember these do not have to be scale goals.  As an example, here are my goals for this week.

Week 1 Goals

I have been soothing my emotions with food and alcohol this past week and although the scale was gentle to me the first few days, it has finally caved to the pressure and showed that I’ve gained a few pounds.  Thank goodness we are starting the challenge!  To turn this around, my goals for this week include:

  • Drink no alcohol.
  • Follow Nutrisystem plan with only exceptions being meals with clients.
  • Exercise 3 times.

What are your goals?  Please leave a comment letting us know what you are committing to this week.  Think small and attainable to start off.

Weekly Weigh-In

I do not expect any of you to weigh in each week, but I promised myself that if I gained weight I would reveal my actual numbers.  The threat has kept me on track for a few weeks, but no longer – so time to fess up.

  • Highest Weight  – 223
  • Current Weight – 216
  • Total Loss – 7.0 lbs

So, there you have it.  From now on I will share my actual #’s.

As a side note, why does sharing real numbers feel like I’m standing in front of you all naked?  

We all have our own issues I suppose. :)

Weekly Prizes

The true prize is gaining motivation and seeing success meeting your goals, but the following have graciously offered to add a little more incentive by sponsoring this challenge with some small prizes:

Can’t wait to see how you do!

  1. I had a Mt. Dew today, but my goal is to not have any more this week. My Birthday is Friday, so I’ll be going out that night, but I think I’ll still be able to eat all right. I weighed in this a.m. at 152 and would be happy with a 2 lb loss this week.
    So week 1 goal = no Dew.

  2. Okay, I promised you I would participate, so here are my goals for the week.
    1. Stick with my current exercise program – Body Revolution, which means exercise six times (yes, I said six).
    2. Stay away from the M&M’s. (This will be the hard one.)
    I lost just over a pound last week and am hoping for at least another one to bite the dust this week. :)

  3. hmmm….ok, my goals are as follows:
    1. Only nutrisystem and the allowed foods.(Stay on Task)
    2. Add 10 minutes of exercise a day….*YIKES*

  4. Hi,
    Here are my goals:
    1. Run 2 times this week and swim 1 time.
    2. Strength training 2 times this week.

    I am very close to my ideal weight, I am now more concerned with toning up my week spots.

    Thanks for the challenge opportunity!

  5. Glad to join in, cause I need this to stay on track! My goal is to drink 4 extra large glasses of water each day, and to not eat any ice cream. I think I live life in dehydration mode, so I want to change that and give my body a fighting chance.

  6. My goal is to exercise 3 times this week and only have 1 sugary food each day. Thanks for this Daria! It’s one thing to have goals in my head and another to post them publicly and feel accountable to them.

  7. Okay, I know I’m late, but this has been my goal this week… I just didn’t get a chance to get in here.

    1) exercise 3 times
    2) eat smaller portions
    3) limit sugar foods to 2x (this week) in small portions

    • Great goals Gina! Don’t be too hard on yourself right now though, it’s stressful and sometimes doing what gets you through the day is what’s called for…although exercise can sure help with stress and emotional stuff.

  8. I totally missed this entire week! Excuses: trying to finish up school with the kids, busy with board related meetings, so tired from lack of sleep, and engrossed in family issues/challenges. OKAY, my goal now is to have no more excuses! I find that when I add a 2 mile walk in every day, I feel great, I eat less and the things I eat are more healthy. I’m setting a realistic goal to start of walking 2 miles 5 days a week.
