Well I have been really wanting to try and start something over the last month and haven't. I need some sort of external motivation and I know that about myself. So seeing this and with the carrot of a free gift of any sort maybe this is what I need. So I will start with the Strength training. The should be possible for me if I can make myself get out of bed when the alarm clocks goes off and not hit snooze...so I guess that is really 2 goals. Thanks for doing this maybe with this challenge and having to report back I can make the needed change to get healthier...

My Goal this week is Nutrition for one. Being as I tend to sleep in, I never pack a lunch with me so I tend to go get fast food a lot, that is going to stop this week.
Also, I am an avid Mt. Dew drinker and that is going to stop. My goal is to instead of drinking Mt. Dew, to drink at least 64oz of water every day.
Also, I am going to do the strength training that has been mentioned. I have been doing one set of 10 pushup and 10 crunches in the morning and starting today I uped the ante to 2 sets of 10 and I will continue to do that.

I'm just going to continue my fitness level but go up in higher weights. Running 2.5 miles 7 days a week and I do push ups and sit ups everyday do more depending on the day. Also I do different weight training everyday. In the end it definitely pays off

I started the EA Sports Active 2, 9 week program 3 weeks ago, and recording my progress on the TargetWeight app. Just started phase 2 - four sessions a week for approx 45mins, getting harder each time. I'm giving it 110%, and have lost just over 6Kg so far

My goal is to try to get to the gym more often. I'm already behind this week because I was sick to start the week. I have already cut back on the Mt Dew and Pepsi and am eating salads for lunch. Another goal is trying to drink more water and I have the fitbit and the app on my iPhone but I always forget to log the water I drink.

I'm going to choose a few goals. I just did a fast so I think I can keep it going so I'll do the Nutrition one. I'm also getting back to my home training so I'll do the strength training (which I can say I started yesterday, using 100 pushups and 100 situps apps.). Finally, I really need to get this tire down so I'll also add the Cardio challenge!
So all 3 on "Hard" difficulty! Go Hard or Go Home!

This is so wonderful! Its a little odd starting on a Wednesday, but I can dig it!
I am going to try the Cardio Training for 15 minutes, 3 times per week. I know its not much, but I need to get off my butt and quit making excuses (oh im too tired, too much homework, etc.).

Fitness Goal: Lose 10 more pounds. Already lost 25!

2. Cutting out beer and sticking with red wine - goodbye Belhaven ;-(
3. Gonna stop staying up reading until 1 am - just as soon as I finish Steve Jobs' bio!

I'll be going for the strength training. Been wanting to work out more and more but procrastination is a bizotch. What better motivation than an iPad 3? (and the other stuff, kinda)
FYI People giving up pop - try La Croix if it is available near you. Great all natural flavored sparkling water that comes in multiple flavors, no sugar, preservatives or anything.

I have been trying (and failing) to get back on some proper nutrition, so maybe this contest will give me the motivation I need.
So I am going with Goal #1. My goal is to limit my caloric intake to somewhere around 1750. No more soda. No more junk food.
Of course, I am already behind, as I have had both today. But we will consider today my cheat day and go from now on.
Looking forward to seeing some of the other nutrition goals! Good luck everyone!

My goal is to start lifting weights again. Being a naturally skinny guy, bigger is the only place
I can go. I have the weights in my garage so all I have to do is find the motivation. Perhaps this contest is it.
3 workouts a week to start. Starting tonight.
