Default 40-something St. Patrick's Day challenge

Spring is right around the corner. What goal would you like to aim for? We can do this especially with the great support here on the 40's 3FC forum!

(I thought I'd put this up today so we have it to think about as we are ending the V-Day challenge.)

Thanks LuvCats for starting this!!

My goal for St. Patricks Day... Hmmm... I need to think on this some more. I leave on St. Patricks Day for my Patagonia trek -- 84 miles of hiking near the southern tip of Chile. It's supposed to be gorgeous and difficult.

My goal is to work out 5 days a week:
  • "Advanced Peak Interval" hour-long elliptical routine once a week.
  • Weight lifting with focus on squats & step climbing with 50pounds 2x per week
  • 25+ min of cardio on weightlifting days
  • 40+ min of cardio 2x more a week

My hope is to be 158 when I step on that plane. So...

Sw 163.1
Cw 163.1
Gw 158.x

Hi again!! Only 31 days for this challenge so I'll try to be a bit more realistic:

1) Lose 5 lbs
2) Post my calories and exercise on this thread daily
3) Keep calories in the 1200-1500 range
4) Some type of exercise daily, run 3x/week, increasing distance on "long" run weekly

Hello, ladies! One challenge ends, and yet another begins! Just like life! My goal is to track my food, stay within a calorie range of 1200-1400 on weekdays and 1600-1800 on weekends. I would like to keep my carb/white flour/white rice/sugar intake low. I would like to increase my protein intake. I would like to get out and walk/jog if the weather permits at least 3 times per week.

Starting weight
2/14/13 - 154

Current weight
2/14/13 - 154

Goal weight
3/17/13 - 148

Yay all the goals sound great. We can do this!

Lol realized I didn't post my own goals.

The are:

1) To get back to pre-Vegas weight and/or lose a bit more.
2) Continue exercising regularly (at least 5 days per week).

I'm going to try to do a lot of walking in Vegas but I'm being realistic that I will eat off plan. Luckily drinking won't happen because I think all types of liquor taste disgusting, lol.

This challenge will be truly a challenge for me (again). My vacation lifestyle continues We are about to go on a ski vacation, destination Whistler BC. This is our 4th time there, and it is our favorite ski resort. -- BUT it is a vacation and we have to eat out all 3 meals per day...plus night life and drinking....

The hotel has a beautiful gym and a fantastic outdoor swimming pool. I have every intention to work out each day and swim for 1 hour (I don't ski; I shattered my ankle 5 years ago after a day of skiing and I can't find a comfortable boot to fit).

So I will do my best!! It will be hard

Ugh, moving in the wrong direction! Valentines Day bump, I'm sure. And my plan to lift weights today is foiled. I got a tetanus shot at my physical yesterday, and boy does my arm hurt! The good news is that I was down 43 pounds since my physical a year ago
