    Oh yeah, to make things interesting and more challenging, I'm going to throw in some dietary goals to lose some weight as well. I already have the no junk-food, no sweets, no added sugar, no wheat, lots of water and walking thing going on but I want to make the healthy meals more regular = 3 full meals and 2 snacks a day.

    For anyone looking for motivation, bookmark this link to a before and after section of a fitness discussion board. People post their results after varying types of workouts, diets and time.

    Anyone concerned about going to a gym and feeling like they are too fat or weak and won't fit in, my experience has been that regulars like it when someone comes in because the change (both physically and in their confidence/self-image) is dramatic and wonderful to see happen.

    ^ Very good goals Classes highly motivate me because I feel like I can't let the instructor and classmates down, and it's scheduled so I'm morely likely to stick to it.

    Alright

    My Super Epic Goals (The Minimums)

    10 push ups a day
    30 sit ups
    4 sets of 4 lunges on each leg (total of 32, 16 for each leg)
    Walk more. 30 minutes?
    More water/tea minusing sugar.
    Incorporate even more pilates, to not bulk up on muscle. Ew.

    Weight goal: 115 lbs, minimum. I weigh...hm. 124-126. Something like that. So, 10-15lbs.

    This isn't too hard. I already do all of this stuff every day.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    ^ These are respectable goals Any changes in your diet? Or do you already eat pretty healthy?

    Great stuff guys! I think this could turn out to be pretty fun and challenging.

    One note: The goals like, "I want to weigh X pounds and run X miles" is great for motivation, but I won't be using those. For the contest, I'll be using the "Exercise 4 times a week" type goals, as that's the type of thing that will get you to X pounds over time.

    Sounds good. Have you thought about adding leg lunges to the mix? They would make a fine addition to your routine.

    Do some kind of crunches every day for . . . I'll start with five minutes and add a few more minutes each week
    No one is laughing - those sound like admirable starting goals. I do recommend you make it a 5 day a week on the crunches thing. 7 days a week doesn't allow much room for error or rest.

    If you want to challenge yourself a bit more down the line, you can always add other types of abdomen exercises. I did that a long time ago, and it was really satisfying to see the difference after being consistent after 2 months.

    I think 6 straight months will be a feat for everyone participating in this thread. Those sound like solid goals to me - that's enough to build some muscle at least.

    And of course there will be leeway for illness and injury. All I really expect is some sort of communication so that I know you are still trying and just had a setback.

    Sounds pretty challenging! Soccer is a great workout - tons of sprinting.

    Between that and the yoga that sounds pretty worthwhile and challenging to me. No junk food and sweets over 6 months isn't very reasonable, though, especially since we have the holidays coming up at the end of the year.

    May I suggest that you allow yourself a bit of leeway? Unless you know yourself well enough to know that one cheat will ruin your efforts, at least.

    I like those goals. Getting involved with a class is a good idea. How long is the class?

    Sounds good! Although by now you may know my stance on doing exercise every day. Rest is good, and so is room to error. Might I suggest 5 days a week? You can always still do 7 days on your own, but consider 5 the minimum.

    Okay I am in. I have been doing 30 minutes on the tredmill 5 days a week and would like to make it 1 hour on the tredmill 5 days a week.

    I have done an hour at a time here and there but would really like to push myself to do an hour consistantly. Also do like a 100 situps or more everyday.

    I don't have a losing weight goal per se as I am more interested in losing inches. I want to lose inches and tone up more then lose weight. My grand goal is to be able to fit and fit well the peach dress hubby proposed to me in that made his eyes pop out- it was hilarious to see his cartoon dog hello nurse reaction! It is one hell of a dress,lol.

    Don't know the specifics of inches needed to do that- my victory will be getting into the dress- I just want to keep going until that happens and of course keep a regimen up afterwards so that I can continue wearing it,lol.
