Met my week one goal on Saturday. My goal was to get down to a 14 minute mile. Thought it would take me a few more days so I was pretty happy about that. Haven't decided my new goal. Thinking 13.30 would be a good one for the next week. I'm not a runner so 13 might be too much for one week for me.

Man, I wish this challenge started at the beginning of the new year. With some relatively rigid portion control, calorie counting thanks to the Calorie Counter android app, and regular workouts, I was able to lose 15 pounds in the month of January.
But I'm not at my goal yet, so I'll continue through February. My per-week weight loss goal is around 3-5 pounds per week, with my ultimate weight loss to eventually be 35 pounds (so I can be back to my high school weight).
My workouts have been mostly cardio (about an hour on my road bike, though the winter chill had made that a bit tough to accomplish) mixed with some core work (Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown--it's awesome) and light weights. I have missed a few days, but my main goal is just to get over this damned sedentary life that I adopted as soon as I graduated from college.
Anyway, unless my Super Bowl cheat day ruined everything, I'm down 2.5 pounds in February. Hopefully with some more regular cardio (I finally got all the winter biking gear I need), that number can go up in the coming weeks.

I hope it's not too late to get in on this. I just heard about it on the podcast over the weekend. Plus, in agreement with a famous comedian on twitter, I don't believe New Year's diets/workout agendas should start until after the Super Bowl
Anyway, I have 2 goals:
1. Start back on Insanity workouts, which is approx 40 min/day for 6 days/wk.
2. No alcohol
I'll keep everyone posted.

The week is going well....
Although I did diverge a bit yesterday during a Super Bowl Party, I am still doing well and am down about 6 lbs... I play poker on Thursday nights and I let the guys know I will not be bring doughnuts or other sweets - I will be bringing a veggie tray.
I do need to get out and exercise... I didn't do any yesterday and I have a very full day today.... Perhaps late this evening.

I ran again this morning. I was contemplating waiting until tomorrow, but then I heard it's likely to rain tomorrow, so I got my lazy bones out of bed and ran 5.31 miles in 46:43 min - pace of 8:48min.
Yes sir! This was a good morning for me.

Alright, I'm in.
My goal is to walk five days a week, for 20 - 30 minutes in the morning. If I can get up to a light run, I'll do that. My knees aren't what they used to be. I'm also back to tracking my food intake using the iPhone app Lose it, and will put in a weight goal. I did that two years ago, and was able to lose 15 pounds. I've put them all back on again and I am not very happy about it.
Thanks for the motivation.

Gained 30 pounds now I have a reason to loose it
Last year I worked at a food court and gained about thirty pounds and lost all my muscle. I have been using the Fleetly app to track my fitness level and work outs. Also, Nike+ GPS for runs. So far not enough motivation to keep it consistent, until this possibility. Thanks iMore for the push.
NTC (Nike Training Club) workout Crunch + Burn completed.
100 sit ups completed.
79 pushups completed.
15(20lb)x12(35lb)x15(20lb) dumbbell curl set (3 sets) completed
1.8 mile run completed.

I'll go with the Strength training
"2 sets of 10 pushups, 10 sit ups, and 10 squats every morning"
that's 60 moves right when I get up, sounds challenging enough for me

11:01 07/02/2012 Second Done, sould say thank you
11:58 08/02/2012 Alright, it wasn't that easy today..

Saw Kevin's videos including the push up one. Funny!
I am not much into strength building but better cardio. My goal is to get on the exercise
bike at least 5 times a week for 30 min. I plan to lose one pound a week. My goal is to
lose at least 10 pounds. I am off to a good start. Just picked up a bike off Craig's list!
After I lose 10 pounds, I plan to reward myself with a Polar heart rate strap that is
supposedly compatible with the exercise bike. I will set a new goal after that.
Wish everyone good luck with their fitness goals!
