Anybody making goals this year? Keep track of 'em here!

I'm going to be joining a gym next week and doing my best to go at least three times per week.

I'm also going to try to complete 1000 miles this year - either walking, running, hiking, or biking.

Oh I guess it's time for a new thread...

Well I wanted to run a 5k, but I messed up my foot while running a month ago and it's still not healed, so I can't run anymore. So my goal is to do 15 minutes of weights 3x a week (should do more, but I got to be realistic, I hate it), and at least 3 hours of cardio a week (bike, walking at an incline or elliptical, pretty much). And to be able to do more than 6 push ups on my toes, that would be nice, so 10 push ups a day, even if I have to finish on my knees for now.

I also want to beat my personal record for HIITs on the elliptical (just using the machine numbers), but my workouts have kinda sucked lately because I've been sick, so we'll see where that goes.

And yeah, to finally reach my goal weight would be nice (I am less than 3 pounds away).

Yes! Multiple things, actually. But, I don't have a specfic

Actually start exercising,& have a plan to go with it. Considering doing Yoga.

I'm also really wanting to eat healthier. Because frankly, I'm really unhealthy, to the point of where I think it's effecting my health. It's just so hard having an really unhealthy(& even moreso when you have no motivation.)

I think my biggest struggle will be finding motivation (which I very little of at the moment.).

So... I don't have a specfic goal yet

(And, I can't believe it's already 2015!)

Yoga is a really great starting point! It's one of my favorite things, very relaxing and doesn't have to "feel" like exercise, if that makes sense.

I thought I was going to try to shave some time off my 5k, but I'm just not really interested in speed so I'm going for building distance at a consistent speed. I want to do a 10k sometime this year.

I also want to build my upper body and core strength instead of focusing so much on legs and cardio. I've actually got really really mediocre upper body strength.

So my actual goals are to walk/run about 38 miles a week on average. I know I'll have weeks where I can barely make it, and weeks where it'll be a lot more depending on how much hiking I'm doing. I also have written a core and upper body workout that I want to alternate every other day (one day core, other day upper body) 6 days a week, with Thursday being a rest day.

Woohoo 2015!

Attend gym 3x/week. Run/walk a 10k. I'd really like to see overall fat loss and tone up.

Sigh I LOVE hiking. But the kids hate it. So every time we've tried, it's been a disaster. I'd go alone, but frankly a bit scared to, as there's often no cell reception out there.

I would like to hike more this year.

Still looking to join a gym near my new job...

Pregnant now and want to get back into the habit asap while I'm pregnant so maybe things are easier to lose afterwards...
