to lose weight. Doesn't matter how much just as long as the scale goes down.

Get my workouts in and get a plan that will work.

Continue to look into things that may help me stay on plan.

Be kind to myself.

09-29-2008, 12:24 PM
My main goal for October would be to make it under the 300's! The day I hit 299 I will be a happy camper...

I like the idea of monthly goals. I need some more accountability here. :)

Here are mine. For the month of October I will:

Stay on plan during the week 100% (that means 1500-1600 cals a day, no excuses).
Limit myself to one non-counting meal on the weekends (instead of multiple times as I have been doing).
Get to the gym 5x per week and continue working on Phase 1 of NROLW
Take my vitamins every day.

My October Goals:
Lose 10 lbs
Go to the gym 5 x a week - push myself each time I'm there.
Stay OP (stick to my daily points)
Get weighed and measured at the gym by Oct 17th as that will
be the 12th week that I have been at the gym.

09-29-2008, 01:50 PM
my goals are:

get in the 220's
increase my work out time by 10 mins (to 70 mins) and 5 days a week
don't go overboard for my birthday

09-29-2008, 02:04 PM
My October Goals:

Lose 15 lbs
Eat more fruits
Get up and moving by 7:30 am

My October goals -

-hit the gym often, and be dedicated
-refuse to buy halloween candy until Halloween day, and give away as much as I can so there are no leftovers.
-lose about 15 lbs as part of my BL challenge
-find a way to stay healthier, and try NOT to get sick again.

Cheers, Ginger

09-29-2008, 02:41 PM
Oh Ginger! I hadn't even thought about Halloween candy. Ok, further resolved: to not buy any candy until Oct 30th (or maybe even the afternoon of Oct 31st).


09-29-2008, 03:00 PM
The scale is going slow, so
Lose 4-5 lbs.
Drink More water
Get more exercise in
Stay away from rice cakes (for me they're like chips, I can't eat just one)

I always buy Halloween candy that I don't like, but that my Dh does so I'm not tempted

09-29-2008, 04:44 PM
My October goals are

Lose 10 pounds
Visit 3FC
Exercise 6 days

09-29-2008, 09:36 PM
WOW! I am so glad that I found this thread. I have joined the Christmas Challenge, but I really like the idea of monthly goals.
October goals:
1. Exercise 6/7 days
2. NO CHEATS on eating plan. (I am on the Ct. weight and wellness high protein/low carb/low cal. diet)
3. ONLY get on the scale 1x week (I get too discouraged otherwise)
4. Keep my attitude in check - this is a lifestyle change.

Thanks ladies. This is fantastic!

09-29-2008, 09:49 PM
I can't believe it's almost October already!

Here are my goals:
~ Drink more water (I have the water bottle, I should use it!)
~ Get the resistance level on the elliptical up to 13 (I'm at 10 right now and it's killer!)
~ Start doing some weights
~ Have more on plan days than off plan days
~ Lose 9 pounds (my goal is to be at 220 by Thanksgiving, but with only 9lbs to go, I think I can be there sooner!)

09-30-2008, 12:27 AM
My goals are:

~ To drink my 8 glasses of water everyday (that's a hard one for me)
~ Exercise at least three times a week
~ To lose 8 pounds

09-30-2008, 09:28 AM
Gumboot - Water used to be hard for me too. What do you drink with meals? I'm one of those people who HAVE to be drinking when eating and LOVE my diet coke. I vowed to only drink water with my food and that made me drink much more water and eat less! Just an idea! :)

09-30-2008, 01:00 PM
- eat more vegetables
- keep going

09-30-2008, 05:37 PM
Get back to 214. Enough of this crap already.
Get back to biking every day. I was aiming for every other day but skipping days turns into skipping weeks. I think I have to do it EVERY DAY for it to become a habit again.

09-30-2008, 10:40 PM
My monthly goals are:
Lose 10lbs or more.
Keep up with my weekly meal planning.
Stick to the 30-day shred, no matter how hard it may be!
Start walking 30 min 4-5 days a week.

09-30-2008, 10:46 PM
My goals for October:

Lose 10 lbs
Get back in the groove of updating 3FC and my blog daily....on my new computer :D
Buy a bike and take a ride everyday
