October Goals

It's time to set some new goals for October. I've had a few rough days during September, but overall I still did well. I do know, however, that I can definitely improve upon the month that just passed, and make this new month even better.
I am setting a goal weight of 190 by Halloween. This will mean losing approximately 11 pounds for the month, but if I step it up in all areas I'm sure I will get there. Water is one thing I've stayed pretty consistent with, so I need to keep that up. I need to eat even more produce...I've been really good about vegetables, but need to get on board with the fruit. I've been sporadic with that lately, so that is something I need to work on for sure.
As for exercise...I've done well except for those few days around my son's birthday, but that's not enough. I'm back to a regular workout schedule, but will incorporate strength training into my routine now. I also fell away from the elliptical trainer for a couple of weeks, so I'm going to be including that in my workouts too. I know I can do more than I have been, and if I commit to that, it will pay off!
It's a brand new month - time for a brand new start. Excuses? NO WAY! October is my breakthrough month...there will be no stopping me now!!!

Great goals Marie!

I need to do more strength training too, especially for the upper body. My legs are trained with all the running I do but the rest needs work.

So one of my goals this month is doing the Shred and girl am I in pain after 2 days :) My arms are hurting but I will hold on!
