Default "Get Fit For Christmas Challenge"

Welcome to our "Get Fit For Christmas Challenge"...

If you are interested in joining in our challenge will begin on September 6 and run through to December 1st which gives us 13 weeks to work our butts off and be ready for the party season

Bear in mind that we will have to be strong and help each other through Hallowee'n candy season and Thanksgiving festivities but together we can do it!

Good luck to everyone participating!

Yey! A new challenge! My Get Fit For Christmas Challenge is to maintain my weight at 183lbs and increase strength.

Current weight: 183lbs
December goal: maintain
Weightlifting current: Squats: 66lbs, Bench press: 50lbs,
Weightlifting goals: Squats: 100lbs, Bench press: 65lbs,
Plan: lift weights 3 times a week, jog 2 times a week
Reward: I wonder if this is where the leather jacket comes inÖ.

Iím still new to the world of weightlifting, and have no idea whether the goals I just put down are impossible, way too easy, or just right.
Guess Iíll have to try and see what happens.

-to loose 10 pounds by the end of the challenge
-keep up with my fitness schedule which includes 4 days of running, 3 days of biking and 2 days of strength training a week
-get to at least one yoga class a week, or do at home.

Thumbs up Goin' after that little hobgoblin known as CONSISTENCY

I'm in (says the woman who just ate two cookies):

Current: 313
Xmas Goal: 299
Plan: 30 min. of exercise per day/Water water water
Walk the beach at least 3 times per week
Be consistent on rising time in the AM
Take my meds EVERY DAY.

And after this message I'm changing my avatar. Though I love my little girl, I'm going to put in something more motivating. (Although it angers me too...we'll see how it feels.) The photo will be of me at age 15, when I was an athlete, pure muscle. But since the scale said 154, I was put on diet pills and lasix. When you see the photo you'll see why I'm angry.

I am in... me the consistent lurker who has decided again that Atkins isn't for me... Any diet/woe that you stop and gain back all you have lost in 2 weeks is just got to be a problem.

I am currently at 167.... I think I will shoot for 150.....

17 pounds is a good number for me...

I have joined so many of these challenges if I actually lost the amount I challenged myself for I would be in the negatives.

I'm up for it! Like Ellis, I think 15# is what I would safely shoot for.

Do you know there is a WALL of halloween candy already put out at my local grocery?

Ditto here, Chervata. That's for people like us who buy it early so we'll be "ready" for Halloween, then we eat it, and have to run out and get more. Let's not do that this year!!

OK! OK! I'm in already. I'm 198 this morning (damned dim sum) and want to be 185 by Christmas. Reward? Being able to button my damned mink coat which I only wear for Church on Christmas Eve!
