    As an aside, I will consolidate everyone's goals via their posts in this thread into one post at the end of day on the 31st, so the exact number of workout times per week for each person and who is involved in what portion of this (contest or friendly participant) is confirmed and everyone is on the same page.

    I am going to work towards 10000 steps a day as my aerobic workout (with one day off a week.) I got a new pedometer a couple of weeks ago so I need to start using it and see how much I am currently doing.

    In addition, I want to increase my flexibility so will do the stretching DVD 3x a week. Then, as both goals are achieved, I will notch this up some.
    Awesome, congrats! Can you share your diet and exercise secrets for success with us?

    Okay, my exercise goal for the contest is 5x a week. I will technically include "active rests", such as hiking or walking, into the 5x a week. However, my unofficial goal is to make 4 of those exercises something substantial, such as jogging, lifting, tennis classes, etc.

    My goal is to make 2-3 of those fun, social activities such as tennis classes, and the remaining exercises more training type things like hitting the gym to lift weights. That's not official, but rather FYI.

    Edit: @Zoom, @Kasper -
    My opinion is that any Exercise sub forum (if we even get one) shouldn't be private, since the before / after picture thread is the only thing I can think of that will be personal. We can always create a thread in the Lounge at the end of the contest for that sort of thing. Otherwise, I think what we are trying to do is neat enough that I wouldn't mind guests checking it out.

    Of course, I may be missing something here. Will other members be more likely to share progress details such as weight and measurements if it's private?

    Okay.. here's the plan. 20 minute workout 5 nights a week. Either stretches + ropework. or Stretches + bodyweight workout (situps, pushups, pullups, squats, thrusts). If a night is skipped, can double up the bodyweight workout and the ropework.

    I was thinking it might be helpful to put our goals in our signature.
    What about you guys?

    Default Tentative Plan

    SUGGESTIONS WANTED!!!!

    I'm going to set out small, so maybe I will stick with it, and build it up.

    Yoga: 1 set a week (at least 5 positions) (about 10 minutes)
    or
    Walking: 1 half hour a week

    Biking: once a week
    or
    Pilates/sit ups: 10 min or 30 sit ups
    or
    Push-ups: 10

    Dance: Ideally, once a week, for two hours.
    Sometimes, I can't do dance every week though.

    Weight: 128
    Height: 5'3
    Goal: 115 lbs
    or
    Perfectly flat stomach
    or
    At least one inch off stomach


    I'm trying to keep my exercising plan flexible. For now, this is what I want to do. I want one of my main focuses to be dance, because it is such great exercise.

    Also:

    Meditate at least once a week.

    I don't care if it doesn't look like exercise, it is good for you. A good and unstressed mindset promotes weight loss, and I am under some extreme stress.

    Comment on food:
    Drink more water
    Maybe make green smoothies
    Eat plenty of fruit/salad

    Those are some hopefuls. I love fruits and veggies


    This exercise plan is subject to change as I figure out what my schedule is, but dance for several hours a week shouldn't change.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I think I want to add that I get one freebie meal each week where I can have white carbs, in case I get invited to dinner at someone's house or someone gives me a breakfast treat (has happened before) or there's like a baby shower or something so I don't have to be rude about it.

    I think I'd like to join. Still thinking about what some good goals will be. I always get overambitious, or you could alternatively say that I always get lazy.

    I'd probably do a mix of some mild exercise (I literally do none right now aside from sports) and some improved eating habits since mine are pretty bad the last few months. I'm not going to set a weight goal but I think I'm about 20-25 pounds from my absolute ideal weight and like...10 pounds from a weight I'd be happy with (what I weighed a few years ago). Assuming muscle stays the same of course which is not a good assumption which is why I'm not setting a weight goal!

    Hello, all. If ye would like input on this matter or have any preference, please state it ASAP (aka today) or it can't be taken into account in time for it to affect the outcome. Thanks!
