Name it, Work for it, Achieve it!

Ok, after debate about new challenges, we have mixed goals.

So, how about a new form of challenge -

Name it - you choose the type of challenge you want to meet

Work for it - We post as we progress

Achieve it - We celebrate when we hit our personal goal / challenge.




For me - it's two-fold,

weight loss - lose 5lb a month

Run every day for Lent - from 10th Feb
I'm not religious but have joined a challenge for charity to run every day - this will incorporate me being away from home for my new job and hope to encourage me to 'move' on my rest days from running further. So rest days will be a short run (very short sometimes).

Count me in

I'm going for more of a basic idea... just sticking to plan!! I need to get back into the swing of things and stop pigging out on everything I know I shouldn't

So for me, 21 days on plan from Monday onward. And what ever the weight loss is will be a bonus
It may sounds silly, but I've got to get my head back in the game

Me too, I've just done a rant style post on my diary, and I intend to log each days food too.

I think that should be part of my goal, not just sticking to plan, but logging everything again... I'm much better at sticking to it when I log it all

Yay! thanks for doing this post

Am not very religious in the traditional sense but always try to do something for lent. It is a 40 day event so...

Guess I need to pick an eating plan and stick to it. So going with Zoe Harcombes food plan. 10 days in Phase 1 (Meats, fish, most veg, salad and N.L. Yogurt) then Phase 2 until stick thin and model like lol. (lots of unprocessed meats & salads, meals separated into carb or fat meals) No Caffeine, refined sugars, etc...
plus try to exercise for at least 1 hour/day and get 7 hours + sleep per night.

Will update sig when start on Wed. Gives me time to shop.

Sounds like a plan Paul!
Thanks so much for the donation to my daughters fundraising page for our 5k. She was thrilled this morning!

We can totally rock Lent!

At the beginning of the month I made myself the challenge of losing 7lb this month but after two weeks of sticking to the dieting and gaining 1lb over two weeks I think that is now an impossible task :-( anyway another 100% week so shall see how weigh in goes on Thursday x

Aww the scale can be mean sometimes, if you're 100% stick with it and have faith - it'll move eventually. ((hugs))

Great idea PJ!

My official target is 11st, but I've decided that I want to get to 10st 9.5lb as I'll have then lost 100lb!

So I want to lose a total of 100lbs

To get there I'm going to stick to plan, eat more speed foods and cut down on carbs. I've also bought an exercise bike online tonight and although, due to ME/fibromyalgia, I can't exercise normally, I'm going to try a few minutes at a time, several times a day. Hopefully, as long as I don't push it, I'll be able to get a little exercise in without any detrimental effects on my health.
