Default 7 day motivational thread (new year, new week, new you!)

Who's in for another week of ass kicking and goal killing? I know all my regular girls are in, welcome to all the new ones!

Post up your goals for the week, update daily and be prepared to be motivated!

To the new girls, I'm the only guy here but feel free to talk as if there are no guys here. The girls here consider me one of their own and won't let me leave.

...and Mike lives in a houseful of girls, even the pets, making him an honorary member and able to contribute wisely on topics ranging from fashion to jewelry to sanitary products; he provides a very valuable guy's perspective when called up as well!

Happy New Year to one and all! Hope you all enjoyed last night either peacefully or in revelry, whichever you chose.


Yesterday I set some goals for the weekend, so I'll do another day of those, then revise for tomorrow and the rest of the week:

1. No sugar
2. 1200 calories max
3. Exercise twice (one down Saturday)
4. 3 sports bottles water
5. 25g fiber
6. 4-5 fruits and veggies
7. Check in daily

Wishing all of you a very happy new year.

Adding my welcome to new members.

Well, half of my whoosh overnight yesterday stuck and I'm totally thrilled to be down to an official beginning weight this year of 216.

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." So I'm going with my same goals that got me down to 216:

Calorie limit 1600
Carbs less fiber 25g
Average daily fiber 25g
Average daily cholesterol 300mg
Average daily sat fat 12%
Fruits/veggies 5 servings per day

Water 48 oz.
Artificial sweetener limit 2 pks. per day
Sugar free dark chocolate miniatures limit 2 per day
Vitamin D and fish oil capsules daily

Stolen idea Each day name something wonderful that happened or a complaint/inconvenience that reminded me of a blessing to be counted

Oops, it's not a new week. Why did I think today is Monday? I'll sticky the old thread back up. Do y'all want me to leave this and we can get back on schedule next Monday or delete and start fresh tomorrow. Let me know.

Doesn't matter to me...I have new goals starting Monday anyway, so whichever...

Some folks might start today with the New Year, some might start tomorrow being Monday; some might wait till Tuesday because of the holiday celebrated on Monday by some places of employment. Maybe a "Jump in whenever you're ready" thread?

I thought that being the newbie here I misunderstood the time frame. I'll be back after awhile with this week's goals -- for starting 1/2/'12. I like having this thread up on the early side.

Jump in whenever your ready sounds good.

Off Topic... Quinn, FWI coach Peyton is putting in the starters this week. Did you hear about ATL's coach crying about the Saints running up the score? Really? This isn't little league, the pros should have to take a knee b/c the losing team can't keep up. Thoughts on this?

Mike, I didn't catch that the new thread was a day early, either. But I'm really glad you started it because I'm restarting today anyway. I'm happy to be able to use this one for eight days--one day jumpstart.

fit4luv, I love your animated smilies. LOL

Mike--2 servings of "break"--typo for bread? When is the half marathon in NO? I won't be there-- just want to know so we can root you on.

Glad you posted your goals because I have to go back and edit in my fish oil and vitamin D. Knew I forgot something.
