Default 2014 Official Chaz Fitness Challenge

So weird to think that it's 2014 already!

I'm starting off with a half-year goal, I'd like to be under 200lbs by my birthday (July 7th). That's 33lbs, which is just over 4.5lbs per month. I think it's doable.

I'd like to do a 5k some time this year, but we'll see if I can swing one with work. I'd at least like to be able to run it, whether it's an actual race or not.

Anyone else have fitness or weight loss goals this year?

Well... My goal last fall was to run 5K. Kili and I managed that within about 2 months. I am in good shape but I am not a distance runner. I think 10K is very ambitious for me and I have no real need to do it. I don't want to call it a goal exactly... but I'll try to work my way up towards it if Kili will stay with me that long.

One of my friends just lost 85 lbs and that's motivating me a lot!

My scale broke a month or so ago so I have no idea where I'm at now. I don't feel like I've gained or lost anything.

My goal is 40 lbs this year. I'm not sure where we will go from there but I think 40 is doable. I just need to make sure to take my metformin every day.

I need to lose the 50 lbs I put on in 2013 and probably need to shed 20 more on top of that. I weigh more than I ever have and I don't feel great about it.

I have running goals-- I really want to run a half marathon. It's been on my bucket list for like two years but when I fall off the wagon I never get back on because my expectations are always too high. So this year I'm going to do it slowly and have monthly mile goals.

Do it do it do it do it!!


Half-marathon for me again this year. Over last year I dropped 2% body fat, so another 2% this year would be nice. I have a vague number in my head of how many pounds of fat I have to lose but I don't really expect to see that change on the scale, so it doesn't matter to me much. Still would really like my ass to not be so big... even if it does help me win at Beer Pong...

But mostly it's just a keep on keepin' on. And I'm here again to help people out should you need it!

I don't think I could make a half marathon work this year, but if you are interested in a 10k, I would be totally willing to meet up and do that. Cause that would be awesome.

I'd really like to loose about 15 pounds this year. I'd also like to do the Color Run in May which is a 5K... I'm not a good runner, but I'm going to try!

Got some new sports bras this past week. Going to get some new shorts and make some old t-shirts into cut offs to work out in. Hoping that will help keep me motivated. Going to book myself in throughout the week. 2x a week I will run, at least once a week I will do yoga and probably once a week Zumba. Hopefully the variety will keep me going. Once summer starts, biking will be back for the dogs as well!

Oh, heading to a nice sportswear place probably early next month to get fitted for good tennis shoes as well.

LET'S GO TEAM!
