Default May goals - let's do them together!

I knocked my April goals out of the park and am still living on the high from my weigh in yesterday! May goals:

- reach the 150's. It's 5-6 lbs, but I think I can do it, unless I hit another dreaded plateau
- hold planks for more than 1 minute. (i can do this in class, but not alone)
- practice push-ups 3 times a week so that I can do them without so much effort

That's all I have. I'm going to continue with my work out routine but I may start doing some yoga just cuz, but only in addition to my intervals, weight lifting, and kettlebells. I may replace pilates with yoga, we will see.

My goals for this month are to be consistant with my diet and exercise. As long as I stay under my calorie count for the day, and am active every day, then my personal goals are completed. However, on a more strict goal I started actually last week: I want to stay on track with the Insanity Workout Program. Today actually marks the beginning of week 2 (Day 8 of 60) for me. I know I can stick with it with some outside motivation. That's where this group will help me alot. Good Luck to all!

I did pretty good with my April goals. I did eat an Easter marshmallow peep but not an entire package (or two) like I usually do! And I succeeded at my # of days at the gym goal. My name should be up on the bulletin board today! Whoohoo!

Here’s what I got for May!

1. 139 pounds by the end of May and fit comfortably in a size 8 (currently in 10’s).
2. Drink more water, eat less salt!
3. To not look away from a cute guy who makes eye contact with me.

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!

I'm in!
I want to hit 199# by may 31st
Comfortably fit in my 18's
Burn or donate my 20's
(Stupid khaki work pants, mostly I want to burn them because I have to wear stupid khaki pants at work, stupid).
And find creative ways to get workouts in on days I can't get to the gym.
That's a good start.
Mini goal July 2014 to October 2014

Long term

My goal for May is to just get started, seriously. I have used every excuse in the book to not stay on track since January (and before that for years too).

My goals are: 1/2 hour on the bike in the living room 4-5 days a week while watching television.

Gym, 3 days a week.

And to record the calories I am consuming consistently . This is the hardest one for me. I'm learning to write down every bit I put into cooking, although I end up forgetting things. But when going out or going to a social function I am completely at a loss as to how to count those calories. I have a travel scale and collapsible measuring cups but I feel weird about whipping them out at a party. I think the key will be to just limit myself to using the smallest plate I can find and only putting "bad" foods on a small fraction of it while filling the rest with raw veggies or the like. There is a Kentucky Derby party this weekend where I know my self restraint will be tested. This will be a test for myself to stay on track and make May the first real month of my weight loss journey.
I hope that I can lose 4-6 pounds and be under 280 by the end of the month.

Oh and Mother's Day brunch out with my fiance's mother. We're going to Lidia's and I am 100 percent sure that this will be an even bigger test on restraint.

Any tips on how to keep track of calories when eating out? Looking at the menu online I know it will be very hard to avoid having butter and starch on my plate. I already pack up 1/2 my meal and ask for double veggies instead of pasta... but my weight says that this is not enough.

I did ok in April...my big goal was to lose the weight I had gained in March while living in a hotel room eating out all the time while dealing with my Mother in Law in the hospital and a family that was making me crazy.
I reached that!

This months goals....
Lose 8 lbs and finally be in the normal BMI category instead of the overweight BMI category.
Consistently ride my bicycle three times a week.
Stop letting outside stressors sabotage my weight loss. (This will be the hardest goal of them all.)

Well I was going to start a yoga class but they cancelled the one where I take Pilates. So I guess my goals are walking 3 times a week, which I haven't been doing because it was rained almost every single day for like a month. Pilates 2 times a week. I'd love to see the 140s by June but as long as I maintain and get stronger I will be okay with staying where I am, I guess....

Hello! I am new to the board and fairly new to my new eating plan. Started on April 1. I have set a goal for May of losing 15 pounds. I haven't set any other goals at this point as staying OP to lose my 15 pounds will be enough for now. =)

Height: 5"11


May Goals:

1. Pilates lesson 3x week. I bought an additional 10 private lessons on Monday. Once I build strength, I'm switching to group/private combos.
2. 50 Crunches on my exercise ball 2x week.
3. 1300-1400 calories 5 days/week and 1700 calories 2 days/week. Hopefully this will move me off my 4 week plateau (I was soooo perfect and nothing happened - and I got soooo bummed!!) so that I hit the 160/159 mark. I have been at 1700/day for 4 days to get my metabolism back up.
4. Cardio/hike/jog 6 times per week. I have been doing awesome on my cardio, sometimes 2 hours per day. I will keep this up for May because it feels great, makes me happy/alive, and my husband is so proud of me.
5. Weigh myself 1 or 2x per week max. The daily weigh in was too all-consuming for me. Too many mornings were ruined when the scale didn't budge or was a tiny bit up.

Goal Caveat: I took my measurements yesterday and I was 40 bust, 29 waist and 40.5 hips. If the scale doesn't move down, I'll gladly accept my measurements shrinking in exchange.

Good luck to you this month, ladies!!

I forgot to mention that I met all my April goals (yea!!) except for the weight loss...but I swear it wasn't my fault because I was so good and so active...damn metabolism. Posting these goals really helped clarify my commitment. This is a good 1x per month check-in/focus.

I am new to the boards, but here are my May goals:

1. Drop to 170's. At 180 I will not longer be considered obese! Yeah! At that point I will simply be overweight.
2. Exercise daily while continuing to count all calories daily.
3. Finish my 4 week session on Biggest Loser for Wii.
