- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
If I visit my gym 120 times within a 365 period, I’ll get $150 toward my next year’s membership. (Through an incentive program offered by my health insurance.) I signed up in mid-March, and am plugging away, getting the required form signed with each visit.
Mr. Bruschetta’s just encouraged me to reach a certain number on my tracking sheet by the wedding…and since I love a challenge, I’m going for it — hopefully this extra push will help me get up in the morning for my daily gym session!
What fitness goal have you (or will you) set for yourself?

- Wedding: April 2018 - The Grand Old House, Grand Cayman
My fitness goal is to start working out 3 or 4 times a week before I go to to work in the morning. It’s so easy to blow off going to the gym when you’re exhausted after work! By the way, Miss B, that is an awesome incentive program that your employer is offering! It would definitely help me get to the gym!

I love that program, Miss B! Wish I had that one!
I’m trying to lose 15 pounds in 15 weeks…and I lost 2.3 pounds the first week! 🙂

I’d like to lose abotu 20 or so pounds and certianly "firm up" (I know you can’t spot tone, but I’d like to look more firm).
Doing 6:30 am clinicals has turned my work out regimine into practically non existance, so I’m trying to work on that.

I have gained almost 20 pounds in the last 2.5 years since I met my FI. I would like to lose at least 10 of that before the wedding. We are starting off going to the gym together three times a week for the next month. FI is also trying to cook some heathier meals (he is totally the cook in our family! i just burn things!)

I just set a new food goal!
-no soda (except Fresca)
– no fried foods
– no sweets
– no white bread
-and I have to drink at least 5 glasses of water a day
I’m hoping this’ll translate into a few pounds of weight loss……..we’ll see!

My goal is to work out 5 days a week from now until the wedding (and forever after?). I figure no excuses for not squeezing in a workout on the weekend, and I can find some time to do it 3 times during the week.
I used to be a workout fanatic and once I finished lawschool and started working, I started making excuses why I couldn’t go. Too tired, hungry, busy, whatever. I am much happier and just FEEL better when I am working out frequently.
Last week I did Sunday, Mon, Thurs, Friday, Saturday. I worked out today so off to a good start for this week!

I really enjoy reading everyone’s goals! I should really add a few more to my regimen.
- No eating after 7 pm (if I do, no carbs or sugar)
- Try to stick with WW points
- Drink only water or clubsoda
- Eat salad once a day
- Smaller portions
I got a little off track the last few weekends with friends in from out of town (beers) and fourth of july weekend (too much to eat).
I really need to start writing down everything again. I lost 10 lbs in a little over a month so now I am plataeuing. Any suggestions on other good habits I can add in?

Right now, my fitness goal is to lose the 10 (!) pounds I’ve gained since my wedding back in May. I guess I was so focused on the wedding that I kind of lost momentum afterwards! I’d like to be back to my pre-wedding weight by the end of the summer. If I can drop another 5 lbs, too, that would be great.

My goal is to break 1:50 in a half marathon. I initially wanted to fun a full marathon, but I think I should stick to a half!

I’m to lose 15 pounds by October for my budoir pictures, and then keep it off until March for the wedding! I’m looking forward to (hopefully) having to get my dress taken in.

My goal is to maintain my same size (and my ample derrierre.) I have quite a JLo and love it! And so does my FI! So I want to stay in shape and continue visiting the gym like I do now. Basically, I don’t want to slack off from my current routine. I do, however, want to eat more nutrient packed foods for things like energy, healthy skin, and a better digestive system. 🙂
My current routine is:
Gym at least 3 times a week and weekend run to the track, around 2x (which will increase) and back home.
At the gym I try to catch the Zumba and Kickboxing classes, but if I miss them I warm up with 15-20 minutes of cardio, and then alternate legs, abs, and arms weight lifting and physio ball exercise. Then I do some more cardio and foot work on the bosu ball to end with a short burst of cardio.
I need to stretch more, too.

My fitness goal is to channel my energy into buffing out for the next couple of days. If I lose even one more pound my dress won’t stay up any more, so instead I’m going for the "pump up" until the wedding. More lifting, less cardio, healthy protein laden eating.

I’m already a size 0 and relatively toned, but I have to try to keep it looking that way through my first year of law school until the wedding. I will focus less on losing weight nad more on lifting heavy and building strength and muscle, so the numbers on the scale either stay the same or go up! My main goal is to start my marriage with a healthier diet and get my cholesterol under 200. That’s right, size 0, 23, female, with cholesterol well over 200. Just goes to show that healthiness has many (invisible) dimensions.
