Default Autumn Challenge!

I hope it's okay for me to start a challenge...

The best time of year is coming! The outdoors will be changing and so will we, for the better. It also means that it's finally cooling down outside, so outdoor exercising won't be so horrendous (especially if your neck of the woods had record highs and weekly heat advisories all summer).

It'll officially run from September 1st to November 30th. I know autumn doesn't officially start until Sept. 23, but 1.) as soon as the calendar says September, it's fall to me and 2.) it gives us an even three months to achieve whatever goals we set.

So, to start off:

CW: 219
GW: 185-190

1.) Cut down soda and drink more water & tea (since I can now justify drinking hot tea!)
2.) Go for protein/vegetable meals and cut down on carbs
3.) Exercise 3-5x/week
4.) Abstain from fast food
5.) Regulate sleep schedule (I'm up until 4AM and sleep until 1PM. Doesn't help I don't get home from work until 1AM).

I would like to join in this. I'm visiting my brother for thanksgiving. I haven't seen him in three years and I want him to see his little sister looking smaller than he's ever seen! (Which I actually am, but I want it to be even smaller, lol.) When I was a kid he tried to get me into exercising (wanted to do tae bo with me, bike riding, etc), but I just didn't care enough back then. I wish I'd appreciated it more.

So my goal is to see 169 on the scale before I go. Even if it's only 169.9!

CW - 177.2
GW - 169.9

1) Keep up with my workouts. I might skip a day or two because I feel awful but I have to push myself back on track ASAP.
2) Limit treats. I need to stop looking for opportunities to let myself go a little off plan, and search for ways to stay super on plan!
3) Yoga every morning.
4) More water.

I have been wanting to join a challenge, I was waiting for the September one to start but this is awesome. I love autumn too but its bitter sweet. Yes its lovely weather and beautiful but it means WINTER is near and I HATE being cold!

CW: 205.8
GW: 199 (i know its not much but read on...)

In addition to a weight goal I want to do an inches goal. I have lots of size 12s in fall clothes that I still like and have saved. I pull pretty taught on my measuring tape in order to get a consistent reading each time, but here are my current and goal measurements:
Waist Start: 32 Goal: 30
Hips Start: 42 Goal: 40
Bust Start: 42.5 Goal: 40 (not a 12 but i like to keep things even)

Action Based goals:
1. Track food daily on Daily Plate
2. Exercise more than 150 minutes per week.
3. Yoga at least 3x per week

Hopefully I will blow these goals out of the water!
