I personally never bother with the scales – there is one kg difference between my biggest weight and my fittest weight because all my fat just turns to muscle!

But my ultimate goals is to enjoy fitness – to not go to the gym because I feel fat, but because I want to!!

To try to improve my cardio so that I can run for half an hour straight.

This is a great goal! I’m married to my scale, and probably shouldn’t be. Good for you for going scale-less!!

Awesome. I’ll join 🙂

 I want to get more leaned out. I want to have beast arms so i have a little bigger biceps and get some tricep muscle which really isn’t there right now.

The love handles need to go…

And i wanna be able to run 5 miles non stop ( i am currently at 2 miles)

Also want to be more consistent and go 5 days a week every week.

I only eat one carb a day now, usually for dinner, i want to cut my cheese intake.

@abirdword:  You should come up with a name for the pact so we can check in and keep each other motivated.

I thought I was a push up machine, but then I read the New Rules of Weightlifting for Women and realized my pushups were wrong form ( ie, elbows out, not in, not going down far enough) and doing “real” pushups almost killed me. I can only do about 10 real ones and I am still not going down as far as I should (the book says 2-4 inches off the ground and I’m more like 6-8). I never did “girl” pushups because my sadistic gym teacher never taught us that so I have just been doing wrong pushups for the last 20 years. What a bitch.

So yeah, being able to do 50 real pushups is a goal of mine as well. I was also thinking I was such a badass doing pullups and then I realized they were cheaters’ pull ups (jumping start so when you pull yourself up you’re already halfway there, supposed to start from a dead hang). So, I’d like to be able to do at least 5 ‘real’ pullups. Also, I’d like to deadlift my own weight for repeated reps, and do 40 kettlebell swings in one minute (my best is 30 and I felt like I was going to die).

For food goals stop my dependence on (grain) carbs! I have been eating much cleaner but sometimes I just have a hunger that cannot be stopped by lean protein or veggies. I swear, my body feels like it needs bread, cereal, or crackers to quell the hunger. And, I have fallen off the water wagon and need to get back on. Today is a new day!

This is a great goal! I’m totally in. I know that I am defintely guilty of being attuned to the numbers on the scale more than the proof in the mirror.

So my fitness goals are going to be:

-keep up with my Paleo Diet (I’ve been falling off the bandwagon here and there) and say NO to grains and dairy and YES to fruits, veggies, nuts & proteins.

-do 5 real pull ups. I can only do 10 assisted at 1/2 my body weight right now.

-run 3 miles in 30 min.

-do 20 real push ups. I’ve been doing the girl version, I can do about 30 of these right now but I tried it the real way and almost died…

-Keep up my trianing for the Tough Mudder in October.

-Complete the Tough Mudder in October. And kill it.
