I need to lose 2lbs per week over the next 14 and bit weeks to hit my first long term goal.

Because I have a holiday, a stag do and a Wedding within the next 3 months I know that realistically I need to smash out some high scoring weeks and get myself well ahead of schedule.

I'm looking to lose minimum of 2lbs but am setting my sights on a big week.

Training in the woods tonight, punchbag and bodyweight exercises tomorrow. Rest Wednesday. Run with stops for pull ups, sit ups, push ups, beam jumps, back row and more sit ups Thursday. Rest Friday. Then hundreds of stairs with kettlebell carrys and slalom running down hill, followed by some parachute sprints.

Just really need to keep my eating in check this week.
Were you on here a while back with a similar username? If so, I remember you.

It's either or, or a combination of them. Veggies are probably easier for me.

Oh and Mike, you've given me another goal -- I have to find something for the 3 theme. Will get back to ya on that .
Yeah, I figured I'd get us off to an early start.

Don't think I need google for those three.

3??? I'll have to think of a 3 goal. They only have early morning swims twice a week, and it's hard for me to go at the other times. I'll have to come back to that.

Mike - re your 3-policy goal. At first, since it followed "ban 3 spammers," I thought you were going to write 3 policies for the forums - like maybe at least one post a day has to be in poem form.
Haha, keeping you on your toes. The 3 policies is for work. It'll be VERY difficult. I haven't don't 3/week in probably 6 months.

Hey, guys!

So, Tori came and found me a couple of weeks ago via PM, so I figured I'd join back in.

I'm doing pretty well. I'm training for a half marathon right now. I'm hoping to drop about 10 lbs pretty quickly here, because I'm meeting up with a friend mid-July whom I haven't seen since I started losing weight (over 2 years ago now, but who's counting?) So I set a goal to be back at my lowest weight by the time I saw her. Anyway, I'll post some goals, I suppose:

1.) c. 1200-1400 calories/day
2.) Drink 64 oz. water/day
3.) Exercise -
M: Gym
T: Run 4 miles
W: Gym
Th: Run 4 miles
F: Gym
S: Off
Su: Run 5 miles
4.) Finish making plots for journal article
5.) Start writing article in earnest
6.) Get my basals on my insulin pump sorted out

It's good to be back. Thanks, Tori, for the PM. Honestly, back in January, when I think it was that I was last here, I needed a break. I was pushing myself too hard and expecting too much. I haven't gained too much weight since I left, a few lbs, but nothing I can't recover from. Cheers to a good week.

Got to the pool today. Only six laps (2 crawl, 4 breaststroke), but I'm feeling like this week is off to a good start!

OK I'm back. Joanna, welcome back! Tori found me too. and there there was that bullying from Mike... To quote Mike Hello you all...umm that might be hi y'all.

Ok so I can't respond to the posts yet cause I am pursuing my goals, which are:

3) Eat mindfully and less
3) stretch daily
3) take magnesium/malic acid twice a day
3) more water
3) get to the gym, even if just for 3 haha I mean 15 minutes
3) write
3) meditate
3) practice Spanish

So 3 goals. In honor of Mike. It was truly a 3 for all. That WAS clever, Dave.

She's alive! We were chanting your name last week to see if you'd show up. I guess you got a late message.
