Default 2013 Resolutions - April Fools' Day to Mother's Day!

April Snow asked if someone could get a new thread started for this challenge, and with only one weigh in left in the April Fools' challenge I thought we might all want to set our goals!

Everyone is welcome - you don't need to have been a part of the previous challenge to participate.

Post your 2013 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 April Fools' Day to Mother's Day to make that happen! That's approximately 6 weeks. What will you do for the next 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.


2013 Resolution:

From April Fools' Day to Mother's Day, my resolution is:

Week one (ends April 7th):
Week two (ends April 14th):
Week three (ends April 21st):
Week four (ends April 28th):
Week five (ends May 5th):
Week six (ends May 12th):

2013 Resolution: To lose 120 pounds by December 31, 2013 - this would put me at 152.

From April Fools' Day to Mother's Day, my resolution is: to lose 20 pounds and exercise at least 300 (changed to 450 for weeks 2-6!) minutes a week.

Week one (April 7th):
Goal weight: 242.4
...Actual weight: 243.8
...Exercise minutes: 229
Notes: I didn't meet either of my goals - I was still in a bad mood funk for the first part of this week - I got ALL of my exercise minutes in on Friday and Saturday! I think the exercise really improved my mood, because now I'm feeling great and back on track. I suspect I'm retaining some water right now because my muscles are KILLING ME from yoga yesterday. I'm going to raise my exercise goal to 450 minutes a week for the rest of this challenge because of the wonders it did for my mood.

Week two (April 14th):
Goal weight: 239.1
...Actual weight: 240.2
...Exercise minutes: 118
Notes: Happy with my weigh in this week, but I let a busy week turn into a serious exercise FAIL. Gotta figure out how to get that workout time in!

Week three (April 21st):
Goal weight: 235.8
...Actual weight: 241.4
...Exercise minutes: 265
Notes: >.< Lots of self sabotage still going on - HUGELY stressful work week for Jordan with a lot of changes going on (not all of them welcome by us) leading to LOTS of eating out. Still not meeting exercise goals, though this was the best week so far.

Week four (April 28th):
Goal weight: 232.4
...Actual weight: 236.0
...Exercise minutes: 264
Notes: 40 pounds lost!

Week five (May 5th):
Goal weight: 229.1
...Actual weight: 235.4
...Exercise minutes: 190 (ouch)
Notes:

Week six (May 12th):
Goal weight: 225.8
...Actual weight:
...Exercise minutes:
Notes:

From April Fools' Day to Mother's Day, my resolution is: to exercise hard, to start running again to train for my 10K*, to stay on plan (barring April 7th and April 20th)**, and to start post season weight training (week 6).

Ideally, I'd like to lose about 10lbs over this period. But more important is training for my 10K in mid July.

**I am following intuitive eating. Those dates are rugby match dates. I do not have normal hunger signals on match days. Eating pre-match makes me feel nauseous, but I have to do it anyway.

I'm in!! I didn't make any 2013 resolutions.

From April Fools' Day to Mother's Day, my resolution is: To get to my lowest in (10+) years as well as out of obese into the overweight category (166 and below to be exact.) Additional goals- 159 and below and start working out at least 2 times a week (I didn't realize I would hit 166 already so I added two more goals/resolutions.)

Week one (April 7th): 166. I made it in the overweight category!!!!
Week two (April 14th): Still 166. There was a glitch with my WW phone app with my DPA (I forgot it goes down every 7-9lb losses) so I had been eating 2 points over my dailies along with my weeklies since, oops!! Now I am eating the right amount of points and I am most proud of myself for keeping up with the workouts last week and will continue to do so this week.

Week three (April 21st): So disappointed, 171. I am on my TOM though and drank a lot on Friday so I don't know. I am seriously buckling down this week. No more BS, all serious business now! Keeping up with workouts.

Week four (April 28th): 167. Bleh. I am trying my best not to give up altogether. I do see a difference in my body and all of my sz 17 jr jeans are now loose/baggy on me so I will take that instead of focusing on the scale! That and a lot of people have been commenting/noticing the 14lb loss. That helps.

Week five (May 5th): Whoo-hoo! 165.4! Happy to see this weight after a long (self-induced) plateau. I am not feeling too bad since all of a sudden my bras are way too loose even on the last hook, pants baggy in the crotch and some shirts being pretty loose. Bought 2 brand new (and CUTE) bras for less than 5 bucks along with a couple of T-shirts in a M/L and 2 light jackets (both M) for less than 30 bucks. I was so focused on the weight I didn't see the difference in the clothes until now. Totally made up for the so-called plateau.

Week six (May 12th): 164.4. Whoo-hoo!

My resolution is not in pounds, because I've been too frustrated too often and I realize that I cannot control the OUTCOME of my plan. I can only control my on-plan actions. So those are my goals.

My current plan: Count calories, between 1200 - 1500/day. Count carbs for 50 or fewer.
Starting weight: 257

2013 Resolution: Lose at least 1 lb./week.

My resolution is: Stay on-plan 80% of the time, for a weekly average of 1500 calories/50 carbs (or fewer)

Week one (ends April 7th): 7-day avg. calories: 1485 avg. carbs: 45 weight: 256
Week two (ends April 14th):
Week three (ends April 21st):
Week four (ends April 28th):
Week five (ends May 5th):
Week six (ends May 12th):
