View Full Version : May Goals!

04-29-2008, 11:30 AM
Hi all... I thought a May Goals thread might be a good idea. I am pumped for summer and finally eating well and excercising consistently so I think the cute summer clothes are in the near future!

My goals for May are:
1) Contiue eating vegan plant-based diet
2) Run 4 days a week and increase long runs to 10km
3) Include more strength training into exercise routine
4) Lose 8 pounds

04-29-2008, 12:23 PM
Yup, it's that time again to carve out some short term goals! For May I want to be doing some form of cardio 5 days a week and weight lifting 3 days a week. I also want to cut down on my portions, focus on whole foods and eat no more than twice during the month at a fast food restaurant. Oh yeah....and I want to lose 8 lbs too!

04-29-2008, 01:21 PM
Short term goals make me feel like I'm accomplishing something. .haha so here mine are.
1. Be running at least 3 miles 4 days a week (by the end of the month get my stamina up to that.. lol)
2. To be down a size in clothes.
3. Lose an inch off my body totally.
4. Start to run outside more often and not on the treadmill so much..

My May goals are....

Stick within my calorie range EVERY DAY 1650-1750 calories

Workout at least 5 days a week every week

Drink at least 64 ounces of water a day...everyday!! (I have trouble getting it all in on weekends)

Lose 12 pounds

just keep swimming

My goals (so far) are:

1. Stay under 1600 calories at least 6 days a week.
2. Cardio at least 6 days a week.
3. Exercise 1600 minutes total.
4. Be able to run a mile in 10 minutes or less by the end of the month.

04-29-2008, 02:24 PM
my goals:

1) continue writing down my foods and counting calories
2) keep sweet treats down to once a week
3) keep aiming for 10,000 steps a day
4) get solidly into the 170s

04-29-2008, 02:39 PM
Here are mine!

- Lose 6 pounds
- Do some sort of exercise 6 days of the week
- Get in at least 100 ounces of water, daily
- No white carbs for May! Only whole grains. *

* I've always eaten whole grain bread, not an issue. Always have 'white' pasta and rice, however, so I'm going to attempt the switch-overs there.

04-29-2008, 03:42 PM
My goals:

-Only take 4 rest days throughout the month (I find when I rest for a day it's soo hard to get back on track).
-60-100 minutes of cardio each day
-Lose 5-8lb (would LOVE to be 134lb as that would be my lowest weight in..about 6-7 years!)
-Get down to a size 5 (currently a size 7)
-Don't lose focus on eating.. I think this is the reason I am gaining weight. I wanted to try a low carb diet as it seems to work with dropping weight, however as a Vegetarian, I get a lot of my calories from carbs (good carbs like fruits and veggies and whole grains though).

04-29-2008, 04:43 PM
May Goals:

-Start BFL
-5 days of Cardio, 3 days of weight training each week
-Drink AT LEAST 64 oz. of water every day (if not more)
-800 minutes of exercise for the month of May (I have to ease into this, I'm just starting back up!)
-Lose 10 lbs

04-29-2008, 04:48 PM
Great idea!!!

-Make it to my goal weight (only 3 pounds to go!) and MAINTAIN!
-Exercise at least 4 days a week (even if it's a 20 minute walk around the block!)
-Be able to wear clothes I'd never dreamed about wearing before (bikini, here I come!)
-Finish training to become a WW receptionist and then eventually Leader!
-Incorporate more vegetables into recipes---AND get my family to try some new healthy recipes!
-Try to control my sweet tooth and not eat so many points in sweets per day!
-Feel GOOD about myself and comfortable in my skin!

My monthly goal is short and sweet! I want to finally lose those last 5 lbs and move into maintenance!

05-01-2008, 11:29 AM
Ok, heres what I've come up with:

I'd like to get down to 145. I've kinda stalled out at 149, the scale will hit 148 and then the next day its back at 149...*sigh*...really anything lower than 149 will make me happy.

I want to work out at least 4 times a week, preferably 5 or 6, but no less than 4.

I want to be able to do 'program 6' on the stair climber for 30 minutes (I've been at 3 and 4 forever, I did 5 yesterday with no problems for 20 minutes, so getting to 6 for 30 minutes would be great!)

I want to fit into the size 9/10 pants in my closet, I can get in them, I just can't zip them.

05-01-2008, 12:06 PM
My May Goals:

1) Workout 3-4 times a week
2) Plan my meals more often
