i didn't see one of these for 2016. This year, we are again trying to do the Couch to 5K (if anyone has any other suggestions, I'm open). I also have a 30 or 60 day plank challenge that I'd like to do sometime in Feb - you know, once the roads are too bad to run on. I'm looking for other 30-60 day challenges to do through out the year.

What about everyone else?

I need to get back in shape in 2016. I'm a runner but I hurt my back (in a ridiculous way, might I add) in July last year. I haven't been able to run for months and I gained quite a bit of weight (apparently you can't go from running 35-0 miles a week, eat the exact same calories and not gain weight...). I want to get back to ideal weight/clothes size as well as add more muscle and start building up my miles again.

I generally hate strength training even though I know how important it is so one of my main goals is to do SOME kind of strength training 4 times a week. The cardio stuff is easier because I enjoy it.

I am going to start running . . . This summer lol! I've lost 54 lbs in the last six months so that's doable now!


Going to start riding regularly again to. After my c-section I have felt breakable and I am hoping to get over that. I can somewhat feel some stomach muscles again so that's a start.

Today I'm starting week 3 of Insanity Max 30 workouts (60 day program). They're tough, but I've definitely already noticed a difference in endurance and overall strength.

Once I finish that, I'd like to try couch to 5k since I've apparently signed up for a 5k dog run in May.

Ideally I'd like to lose this 3 inches off my waist that seems to have appeared over the past 2 months.

My fitness goal is keep going to CrossFit, where they can continue to beat the crap out of me on a regular basis. It's a sick love/hate relationship. :cool:

Actually I mostly just love it. Having someone there to tell me I can't stop is very helpful some mornings :p

I want to be able to do one hour on the treadmill at 15% incline and 3.3mph. My best so far is 13.5 but between getting sick too much and my calves hurting too much, it's been a while since I did that... So, that's my goal (and I don't cheat by holding the bar). And maybe reach 275 calories burned in an hour on my bike (I'm at 220 so far). And improve my rowing too.. but I just started so it's tough to set a goal.

And maybe finally getting down to 130 pounds but I don't think it's going to happen unless I find some miracle solution to stop starving during PMS. I have no problem losing weight the 2 weeks after my period, but I'm so hungry the 2 weeks before my period that I put back on any weight I lose. It sucks. I'm still 3 pounds over my pre-Thanksgiving weight and I don't even know how I'm going to lose those 3 pounds, even less the other 3... It's just discouraging. Somehow my measurements haven't changed though.. so there's that.

Ok so maybe not going back to 140 pounds should be a more realistic goal at this point.

I want to really dedicate myself to doing my PT strengthening exercises for my injured knee on a regular basis (basically just strength training for my quads/glutes). I'm so sick of it hurting all the time, and it's especially frustrating since I'm so active.

I also just want to do more outdoor activities, get stronger, and start running consistently again. I'm excited to get my driver's license so I can go hiking with the pups more and do some more kayaking and SUPing.

Nothing concrete, but I basically just want to do more physical activities and get fitter in the process. I find that if I try to set a workout schedule for myself I get really bored with it, so getting generally fitter by doing things I love is a much better goal for me.

My fitness goal; sit on the coach eating popcorn and watching Netflix:thumbup: (I do fenceing and horse back riding once a week, I got lucky with the horse back riding my cousin owns a horse and she teaches me, if she didn't there's no way in hell we could afford it)
