Default summer goals

I'm a teacher and I have the next 2 months off. I don't want to waste them!
So I thought I'd write down some goals to challenge myself. I hope you guys will join me and post some goals too!
1) stay on program (WW)
2) go to the gym 4 times a week
3) clean my house really well!
4) brush up on my sign language and Spanish (I teach special education in a predominately Hispanic school)
5) get down to a solid size 12 (I'm a pretty snug 14)
6) save money for my next graduate class

I'm in a similar boat! I'm an instructor and have the first summer session off and am only teaching one class in the second session. So I'm having a Biggest Loser summer.

My goals:

1) Read NROLW and start lifting (Done!)
2) Turn my junk room into a workout room (In progress)
3) Clean my house! (We'll see)
4) Go to at least one yoga class a week (So far, so good)
5) Stay on my nutritional plan (Going great)
6) Go down at least one size by the beginning of fall semester

Great thread, and great goals!

Let's see...

1. Lose at least eight more lbs by the end of the summer.
2. Try to fit in a comfortable size 8, and stay there. (8/10 now)
3. C25K x3/week
4. Build a gradual tan
5. Get a JOB! SAVE MONEY!
6. Stay on plan - write down all foods.
7. Clothing shopping for next fall. Girlier stuff, as to not hide behind my clothing anymore.
8. Join Curves, by next week, and actually GO.

Only one for me too. Get back to walking to work. I stopped for a while because there was so much going on around me, I needed the car to run various errands during the day. I sort of got into the habit of driving to work - after five years of walking. Not Good. Must walk.........

Lovely thread - ya got me thinkin'....

Lemme see....

Yep, stay OP...which should lead to ...
another 7 pounds gone by September!

Getting up M-F early for a walk - which ought to lead to:
Being able to walk down and then back up our hill w/o breaking (easy mile down, steep mile up)!

Non-diet goals: Cleaning and painting my bedroom
"Maintaining" the weed population in my garden

Actually enjoying the first summer off in a loooong time!!!

I'm not a teacher with the summer off but I have always come up with summer goals/projects
1) Walk in AM and work up to jogging 3m
2) Ditch process sugar for yummy fresh fruits
3) Experiment with salads esp those containing plant proteins (beans, quinoa)
4) Study for GRE 'cause I'm just accepted provisionally until I get that done
5) Take an extra Spanish class

(chickybird, you and I have a lot in common--I have also returned to school-- MA Applied Linguistics; I learned sign language about 20 years ago and I am working now on improving my Spanish. We're also about the same dress size but I'll bet with your height it looks a WHOLE lot better on you )
