    I started running again last summer and since then have lost 25lbs. I have a bad shoulder and just began doing pushups again. This week I will be doing pushups every morning and night.

    I started off the year with the goal of running a half marathon in April and my goal(s) for the upcoming weeks and months is to run every-other day and use MapMyRun and/or RunKeeper to track my progress.

    I'm choosing 2, but the #1 focus will be the cardio... I want to be in better shape to participate in the local St. Patty's Day 5k anyway. I'll also be dropping everything but water this week! Nice "community" focus, iMore!

    15lbs going away in February!!

    I'll be the first to admit it, Im a soda (Or Pop, for you fellow midwesterners) junkie, so I'm going to eliminate soda, and the occasional brew from my diet.

    I've also been monumentally lazy this winter. Fast approaching 40, I realize that's probably not a good thing. I work approximately 1.9 miles from work. So weather permitting, tomorrow I start beating feet for my commute.

    As the week progresses, I'll add some basic excercises to the morning routine.

    This is a great contest. I'm the type that needs some additional motivation when the weather is nasty, so this is perfect. I'll try to document my progress with photo's as this goes on.

    A week of healthy (healthier) eating. No soda, no coffee, much less junk food.

    I'm going to choose Cardio Training. I've been good about getting into the gym every day, but usually don't do much cardio, so hopefully this will keep me motivated to do that cardio!

    I started a couple weeks ago & plan on keeping up is doing C25k. I just did Week 3 Day 2 this morning. Before I do C25k, I do some strength training. So I go to the gym 3 times a week doing this. Also once do one of my wife's DVDs of Jillian for she's pretty tough. Also we have been going on short walks in the evening since it has been wonderful weather in OK.

    Now that my wedding (and consequent planning) is over, I have time to ride and race again. Maybe throw in some P90X for some strength training.

    I'm doing tae kwondo 4 days a week. Starting this week, I've added running. I'm going to run one mile ever other day. I'll increase my mileage each week so that I can prepare for a marathon this year.

    I am working on a 5K. I'm really far behind so my goal this week is do a mile in under 14 minutes. I know that's not fast but I am currently at just over 15 minutes and I gotta start somewhere.

    I'm planning on doing cardio with running. This week I've run twice - about 5 1/3 miles each day. My goal is to reach 15 miles total by the end of the week.

    My goal is cardio, and today I logged 35 minutes doing intervals on an elliptical machine. Woohoo! My cardio goal for the week is to push the resistance on the machine one level higher. So far, so good.

    This is perfect timing for me. I'm on week 2 of cross fit workouts and I just finished my last soda in the house. My goals are to eliminate sodas, both regular and diet, continue my 3-4 times a week workouts and improve my diet to only whole, natural foods ( lean meats, vegetables, fruit). I am doing well so far, but, as with all things, it is good to have some outside help and encouragement.

    Since this is about tips as well as goals, I'll add what has helped me most with keeping up a workout routine. I always pack my gym bag the night before. That way there is no excuse for not brining it with me. If I have my gym bag sitting on my passenger seat, it is very hard to drive by the gym after work. Also, if I am going to work out before work, I just grab my bag and go and don't lose time getting everything ready. Hope this helps.

    I cut out soda over a decade ago, and don't even like it anymore (I used to drink several cans of Mt. Dew or some other soda each day). I don't eat fast foot that much either, though I could still improve my diet a bit. So...

    Exercise is the thing this year. We recently got a dog and have a couple miles of woods trails across the street. We've been taking a brisk walk through those trails a couple times each week (also pushing a stroller), and hope to keep that up and maybe increase the frequency.

    I will take on the strength component of the challenge. This will be a good motivator for me.

    My wife and I got rolling on a fitness program 4 months ago and are about half way to our goals. Our program has been reduced calorie meals, reduced carbs and alcohol, healthier snacking (hard boiled eggs, fresh veggies, fruit), weekend 3-5 mile hike, 30 minute cardio 2-3 times per week, and working out for 1 hour with a personal trainer 3 times a week. The personal training is brutal strength and cardio, but it is paying off. My wife has lost 10 pounds and I have lost 20. I have also lost 4 inches off my waist. I'm on target to be back to the fitness and weight I had when I started college (23 years ago) by summer. It has been hard work and I feel like I do nothing but work, exercise, and sleep, but I feel so much healthier and stronger.

    So, goal for the week - 3 sessions with the trainer, 3 mile run today, intervals of sprints, jogging and hills on Friday, 5 mile hike Sunday, watch the diet, drink more water.
