Default New Year's to Valentine's Day - Resolutions

Last year I started a New Year's Resolution thread from NYE to Mid Year. I thought it worked out pretty well but a lot of people dropped out because they felt like it was too huge of a chunk of time to be accountable.

This year we're taking a smaller bite!

Make your New Year's resolution. If you don't make resolutions and want to make a goal, that's fine too. It doesn't have to be a specific weight or a specific size but it does have to be SPECIFIC (i.e. Don't write "I want to be healthier." If you want to improve your health, how are you going to measure that? Do you want a specific blood pressure range? Do you want to be able to run a mile nonstop? etc).

Next you're going to write what you're going to do from New Year's day to Valentine's day to make that happen! That's approximately 6 weeks (or exactly 44 days). What will you do for the first 6 weeks of 2013? How will you make your resolution happen?

Copy and paste this format. You'll be coming back each week to update your progress (find the entry and click edit). And this thread will be available for us to chat about the challenge, overcome struggles and celebrate successes.

Once Valentine's day comes, I will start the second challenge to lead us to our next holiday.

New Year's Resolution:

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is:

Week one (ends Jan 5th):
Week two (ends Jan 12th):
Week three (ends Jan 19th):
Week four (ends Jan 26th):
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
Week seven (ends Feb 14th):

New Year's Resolution: By December 31st, 2013, I want to be maintaining my goal weight of 112lbs.

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is to lose 3/4 pounds. (Weight loss is slow I doubt I'd lose more)
Start Weight: 129lbs (31/12/12) I'm starting 2013 with a scale break for the month of January but I will continue to come back and edit each week about my progress.

Week one (ends Jan 5th):
Scale Break. First week of January has been successful. I've been sticking to eating reasonably well (some munchies at times) and drinking a lot of water. In the middle of exams right now so my exercise has been all over the place with some days doing enough (at least 30 minutes a day) and other days doing barely any.

Week two (ends Jan 12th):
Scale Break. Had exams since last week. Thankfully finished now. Exercising was kind of lacking this week. Now I have two weeks off in which I will be fully committing myself to healthy eating, water and exercise. During the week I found a 12 day exercise plan to kick-start any weight loss programme. It is a mixture of cardio and circuit training. So, today I will be looking up the exercises on how to do them proper and start the programme tomorrow. I'm actually fairly excited! Hopefully these two weeks will get the scale moving once again and when I step on it at the end of January, there will be a loss.

Week three (ends Jan 19th):
Scale Break. Exam time is well and truly over now. I was able to get back into proper workouts during the week. This will hopefully continue onto next week. The programme I found didn't suit me so I just stuck to walking, my stepper and weight lighting. Looking forward to next week as it is again another chance to keep some butt before my scale break ends. I would like to see some losses. I feel like I gained some weight during exam time with some comfort eating too.

Week four (ends Jan 26th):
Scale Break. This week wasn't too bad! I'm still exercising but I did slip a little with food and didn't many great choices during the week. This has been worried for my weigh in during the week. I'm just going to work hard today and tomorrow and work around my new college timetable next week and hopefully see a loss. And most importantly, go back to better eating!

Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Scale Break is finally over. And I'm very annoyed with myself. This week has been awful to say the least. Exercise has lacked and my eating has been out of control...I'm back to college now and the first week has been pretty successful since we were given all our assignments. I guess I just pushed everything aside. I weighed in at 137lbs this morning...Maybe some is water weight? TOM is here also, so some weight could contribute to that. But I'd imagine some is a proper gain. I knew I was having a bad week and said to myself that February 1st was the time to get back on track after a pretty off January. I was almost going to leave this challenge because of the gain but I decided not too. And if I lose a pound or two by the time February 14th comes around, I will be happy.

Week six (ends Feb 9th):
No weigh in.

Week seven (ends Feb 14th):
137lbs. No results. Tomorrow is another day.

New Year's Resolution: By December 31st, 2013, I want to be somewhere around 145

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is to hit 199 (I am currently at 219) so 20lbs

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 227... This so shouldn't count. I'm retaining something. Gaining 10lbs in 3 days doesn't seem right. But ok....i will do better.
Week two (ends Jan 12th):
Week three (ends Jan 19th):
Week four (ends Jan 26th):
Week five (ends Feb 2nd):
Week six (ends Feb 9th):
