Sounds like a good idea! My birthday is at the end of next month and I won’t so badly to be in the 130s. I starting slipping to after the wedding and gained 7 lbs. I have finally gotten back to where I was the week of the wedding. I plan to drink 8 glasses of water, workout more, stop eating out so much and if I do, choose healthy choices. Cut back on portions and sweets, and stop mindless eating. I love running and haven’t been doing much of it lately. I want to start running 3 miles at least 4 times a week and more weight training and yoga once a week.

Count me in! I have completely fallen off the wagon since our wedding in September. My goals are to stick to an 80% paleo diet (I have a lot of stomach issues and my body seems happiest when I eat this way) and exercise at least 30 min, 4-5 times/week. And drink more water…I’m terrible about drinking water. 

I’m about 15 lbs heavier than my ultimate goal weight, so it would be great to get down to that, but I would also be really happy to just tone things up and not have my pants tight after I eat a big meal heh. 🙂

Yes!! I was doing so well all year until October. I’ve been sooo lazy and need to get back into it! My goals will be:

-Nothing with added or artificial sugar (not counting fruits).

-No white carbs.

-At the gym for one hour, four days a week.

-Drink more water!

-Eat more veggies and protein.

-No skipping meals!

I’m particularly bad with skipping meals. I just get distracted, and then I tend to make awful eating choices for my next meal.

This is a great idea!

1. ONLY weigh myself on mondays… i tend to get obsessed 😉

2. work out sun-thurs… i work at a gym so this should be decently easy

3. drink 70 ounces of water a day

4. no starches after 3pm!

5. stop forgetting to take my vitamins

6. don’t eat tons and tons and tons on thanksgiving

I’d love to get on board with this, my plan: 

-Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily

-Eat a variety of fruit and veg, totalling 5-10 servings per day

-Workout, including yoga and cardio

-Meditate to release stress 

-Watch one or two hours less of tv per day/internet

Can I join still?! I’d like to lose 10lbs/fit back into my skinny clothes in 6 weeks.


-No refined sugar/white carbs

-Cardio 6 days/week for 30 minutes

-Weights 2x/week and abs 4x/week

-Eat 5 servings of veggies/day

-Take supplements daily (multi, fish oil, coconut oil, flax seed and apple cider vinegar). I know, I’m a freak! 


@cdncinnamongirl:  Completely agree and I do the same thing. Writing stuff down and checking off goals is such a great way to stay accountable. I also find that when I go back and read my notes/thoughts about the whole process I can spot patterns and create solutions for typical problems.
