Goals for week four

Keep up the water intake - minimum of 60 ounces per day.
Ride at least 60 miles this week (hard to do with my work schedule this week but I'm going to try!)
Stay away from the sweets and big portions - not too hard any more but still, the temptations are EVERYWHERE!

Gain no weight. At a conference monday-thursday. So, no weight gain would be good. Bike 100 miles, run 16 miles, get to the gym three times for upper body.

Goals this week:
-Make it to the gym twice.
-Continue to drink only 2 diet sodas per day.
-Stay busy and active this weekend to avoid over-eating.
-Ride 80 miles this week.

I already went to the gym this morning, so I have a good start on the first goal. Weekends have been KILLING me as I've weighed in at 5lbs heavier on Mondays lately than I have on Fridays. I just moved here far away from all friends and family and can't seem to stay busy enough to keep from over eating out of pure boredom. Managing one 30 mile ride per weekend, but not enough to keep my busy. Also weather is cooling down and being from Northern California, I think this Central Ohio weather is going to keep me off the bike quite a bit in the coming weeks/months. My 50 degree ride on Friday robbed me of my feet and replaced them with two footsicles! Some gear upgrades are being made though.

Sounds like a sane approach! Upsetting the normal routine is always touhgh. I need to remember that any week I do not gain is an improvement over where I was in April. Thanks for the reminder. I have a tough week - too. We are teaching one of our first groups this week at a differnet locationa nd somehow people bring in lots of small candies etc for the troops!!!!

Good luck

Hi everyone,

I would like to join in.

I just quit smoking this morning and joined a gym at lunch.

I have a meeting for a gym orientation on Thursday.

My goals this week
1) go to the gym twice on top of the orientation. One of which is a spinning class.
2) stay away from cigarettes. God that'll be fun.
3) Lose 1 pound. I will weigh myself tomorrow morning to establish the baseline.
4) Commute by bike and bus 1 day this week.

I am starting small, don't want to push too hard the first week.

Give me whatever color you want, I'm not picky.

Billy

Well, if today is any indication of what this week is going to be like, then my only goal is to get through it without killing anybody. Wait, make that two goals, don't kill anyone, and stay out of the god damned candy jar at work. Wish me luck.

As I mentioned in the third week thread, my birthday is this week, and people have special events planned all week for me. Which is great! - for having fun, but not so much for losing weight. So I will have to dial it back on all my other meals to compensate.

Goals:
1. Lose 1 pound (for morale!)
2. Get to the gym five days.
3. I'm still off the bike, so I'll be walking as much as possible.
