Speak Up: What's Your Goal?

Speak Up: What's Your Goal?

We all have different reasons for exercising and eating right, which means we all have different goals in mind as well.

I am curious what your personal goal is. It doesn't have to be big - maybe just to fit into a size six. Or maybe it's that you want to be able to chase after your toddler. Perhaps you've got a special event coming up that you want to look and feel good for. Or maybe it's as simple as going to the gym five days in one week. It could even be as broad as that you want to be healthy and live longer. A goal, no matter how big or small is still a goal.

No matter what your goal is, setting one is important. So speak up and share your personal goals in the comment section below - not only is it a good way to remind yourself of why you want to get healthy, but also it can help motivate others who are still searching for a reason.

Since I got married I gained 35 pounds!!!! I'm not blaming it on anyone but myself. I went from a size 6 or 8 to a size 12 or 14!!!! But now I'm trying to get pregnant and I want to lose weight so that I can make the conception easier and so that I don't get really heavy once I am pregnant. And I just want to be healthy and feel good about myself again. So that's my goal. I drink tons of water, I'm eating more fruits and vegetables (organic..hee) and I've been working out 30-45 minutes 5 days a week. I'm going to start using weights. Right now I've been hopping on my treadmill and also doing pilates/yoga mix dvd. I just have to curb my low-fat frozen yogurt intake around that time of the month ;) I hope you all meet your goals!!! :)

My goal is to make 30 mins of exercise an everyday routine in my life. That means waking up at 6am to do my short term goal is to try it every day next week. Also to eat 2 servings of veggies per meal. I want to lose 10 lbs..but right now I would rather concentrate on creating healthy habits and then get serious about weightloss. I just want to get my mindset right.

my goal, since i have been dealing with an eating disorder for 12 years, is to not overeat and to pick things i wont feel guilty about. We just had a luncheon here today at work, which means lots of casseroles, fried chicken, desserts.....I chanted to myself while going in there "good stuff good stuff" and i did so well i was beaming with pride at the end. It might sound trivial but to me it was a big deal!

Daily goal: make time for the gym/running, not let my day take control until it's too late - even if it means getting up early (and I hate mornings) Specific goals: Run 5k in 30 min by the new year. THEN I'd like to run a 10k and raise $$ for breast cancer by my next birthday - early April Overall goals: Strengthen my core so no more bad back. And I'd also like to call myself a 'runner' right now I feel like I fake it :)

I'd like to lose around 20 pounds and fit into a size 27 or maybe 26 one day. I'd like to be more lean, and have nice abs eventually. Eating better is a process, and the route I have taken is not a quick fix one by any means so this will take some time. I would also like to be able to run a few miles without stopping.

I have a few. One is to continue running regularly until I am physically unable to. I love running, and I never want to give it up. A smaller, more short-term goal is to keep myself in shape so that I have a healthy and active first pregnancy at some point in the near future. I used to have size and weight goals, but those don't work for me.

my goal is to lose 30 lbs, originally it was before my birthday in Jan, but I changed my mind on that, it's a lot to ask jus tnot to GAIN weight during the holidays. Also I'd like to get engaged within the year. Hopefully that'll help motivate me to get in shape :) Also, I want to be happy. Less stressed.

To look as great as I did when I lost 30 pounds 5 years ago. I have only gained about 5 pounds or so, but I'm not as strong. :(
