I have been a runner for two years, which is funny because all of my life I could never run... But then a runner friend of mine tricked me and told me about all the great places that you can run a marathon including Disney... I googled the medals and now it is my goal to run the Disney marathon (hoping in 2014).

Looking forward to getting to know everyone over the challenge...
to the Disboards, Rhonda, and to the BL Fall Challenge! Great job on your success so far.

Let's get this party started!
My goal this challenge is to lose 10 lbs. I am going to count what I eat and pack my lunch for work 3 out of 5 days a week. I am also going to increase my water intake. I am looking forward to a really successful challenge!!

Welcome Rhonda! I had to laugh because this happened to me 2 years ago--my runner friend, however, also unfortunately encouraged me to sign up for a 2nd 1/2 marathon the weekend after my 1st. (Because, you know, I was training for a full, so you know, just a normal long run.) That was TOO MUCH!!! I haven't run consistently since. Starting C25K with the challenge though, just to get active again. I'd love to run the WDW marathon one day... maybe i'll join you in 2014? (ANYTHING seems possible at the beginning of a challenge )

My big goal for the challenge: To lose 13 pounds (a little over 1 lb./week) from whatever my weigh-in is tomorrow. I have a hunch it will be kind of high. I want to be under 150 by the New Year!

My exercise plan: Start Couch to 5K with the challenge, just to get off the couch! Stick with it at least through the program.

My food plan: Track all my calories in My Fitness Pal, plan everything I'm going to eat out the day before, make sure I've got a dinner/leftover lunch meal plan each week by Sunday the week prior so I can go to the Farmer's market and make sure everything is as fresh as I can. Get all those recipes entered in MFP ahead of time so I can track very easily each night.

I don't really have a plan per say, but I do have things I am planning on working on for this challenge.

1. Not to keep skipping breakfast...
2. To go to the gym at least 3 times a week (plus one day of Zumba.)
3. To drink as much (if not all) of my 64oz of water daily.

As for goals, I'd be totally happy to lose 10lbs during this challenge. And if I can lose more, that would be even better!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well...guess what folks?

I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD NEXT MONTH!!!



Bring on the Disney magic!!!

Let's get this party started!
Oh Main Street, I'll be walking on you in 20 DAYS!!!!!

My goals for this challenge are as follows:

1) Keep up my running after I get home from my trip. I don't want to give it up just because I don't have a Disney race to train for...although it does give me a *really* good excuse to run
2) Lose 1lb a week. It may not seem like a lot, but it does add up to quite a bit!
3) Track my food intake better- currently, I probably only track about 4/7 days I use it as an excuse to go off-plan, and when I do that, I have gaining weeks. No more!
4) Have a fantastic time not worrying and stressing about my food intake on my trip to the World in just 20 DAYS!!! (Sorry, I had to say it again, I'm just so excited!) I'll be there for the opening weekend of F&WF, and I've always wanted to go. I want to go and not feel guilty and go into a shame spiral because of what/how much I eat.

I think those are doable goals. I don't want to make them too lofty, otherwise I'll set myself up to fail, simply because they can be daunting!

Can't wait to hear everyone else's goals too!!

Those are awesome goals!! And so is that graphic!!! You must be so stoked about your trip! Are you going to MNNSHP?

************************
So for my trip, I'm going with two friends (that have yet to meet each other!) and haven't been in years. I've been named the tour guide, and I want to make sure I don't overwhelm them. Any suggestions on keeping it low-key? I've never been much of a commando-style guest, but I may have a skewed opinion of myself All our ADR's are made, and I don't really have hardcore plans. As far as rides, we'll get on whatever we can when the lines are short. I have "two" days at DHS- one of which is the half-day we arrive and the other is the night of the race when the park is open til 4AM!!!! That doesn't sound too bad to me, but I just wanted to see if this was reasonable to anyone else. Thanks guys!!

QOTD Friday, September 7, 2012: So do you have a plan for how you are going to make your goals for the challenge? Share your plan and your goals big and small for this challenge.
I am going to back to my plan that has worked in the past of tracking my food on myfitnesspal and getting to the gym 3 times minimum each week. My added component is resolve to not give up this time. I will also make sure my fridge and cupboards are stocked with the good things so I stay on plan when eating and so not have the opportunity to stray. I will also pack my gym bag before going to bed each night so that I can grab it on my way out the door and then stop at the gym on the way home from work. I know that if I have to go home first, I will not go back out to the gym.

Goals:
  1. Still be here at the end of the challenge - I have not completed the last 2 that I joined
  2. Complete the Couch to 10K program
  3. See my name on the Top 10 during this challenge

같같같같같같같같같같같
Well the day has started here in Switzerland as many of you are continuing to dream about that first step on the scale. Don't worry....I did it and so can you. We all have a starting number and it will be exciting to think that it will be a lower number this time next week if we all apply ourselves! Good luck!

I have exactly 6 weeks before my arrival at WDW. I would love to have to carry an empty suitcase with me to the USA because my clothes are all too big and then fill it up with clothes that fit to bring back with me......so I guess this is a mini-goal that is floating in the back of head also.

Have a great day! I look forward to finding out who is in my Mini-group!

Christopher

Morning everyone
Well I braved the scales and now can breathe again
Good luck to everyone this morning
QOTD I think I said already but I've joined WW this time so I plan to track all I eat and drink this challenge and to stick within my points allowance. I only started on Monday but so far so good

My goal is to lose 10lbs by the end of the challenge and to follow Jeff Galloway's Training plan for very unfit people who want to run/walk a half marathon before "they pop their clogs" or in my case turn 50

Have to run(pun intended) but just wanted to say good luck everyone

My goals for this challenge are to lose 10-12 pounds (although I think inches are more important to me, I'm just lazy and don't want to take the time to measure) and not gain while I'm on vacation in October.

To meet those goals I plan to

1. Continue running 3-4 days a week (and hopefully run a 5k)
2. Continue strength training 3-4 days a week.
3. Drink water
4. be more mindful of what I'm eating and when I'm eating. Eat when I'm hungry not when I just don't have anything else to do. Incorporate more vegatables (something I really struggle with which is silly because I really like them!)

Good morning all! Welcome to the first official day of the Fall Challenge!

Please be sure and PM Octoberbride03 (Maureen), if you haven't already, to join the challenge and PM your starting weight to kollerbear (Samantha).

And be on the lookout for the mini-group assignments and maybe a mini-challenge?

These are great goals -- you have the big picture and a couple of ways to get there. Not too overwhelming and very doable!

Looks like a great plan to me! And how exciting to be so close to your own Disney trip! Pretty soon we will be doing the single digit dance with you.

I think that you have a great plan for the challenge and for your WDW trip!

My suggestion is to sign up for another race before you do the ToT. It might not be a Disney race and just another race to keep you moving. That is my strategy and it keeps me from parking myself on the couch when one race is done.

My goal is to lose 15 pounds -- that will put me at the top range of weight for my height -- that is one of the nice things about turning 50, the chart changes a bit.

I will track my calories on MFP and will continue with my training plan for the Wine & Dine Half and the WDW Donald Half. I will also add one day of walking and one day of swimming to round out my cross training.

Those of you who did the Summer Challenge may be wondering if we are going on the same trip to Disney that we did in June. The answer is no. Like any good return trip to Disney we will visit old favorites and try a new place of two.

Have a great day all!

Good luck to all!

Christopher
Hold your head Up High...Christopher!
I'm back too and failed the last 3 I started But Not This Time
We already had some success we're back!

Sorry guys I'm a day behind
So here is my Mini Intro
My name is Joy I'm a Nurse of 30+ years Mom of 3 adult daughters and 3 kitty cats I love all things Disney, enjoy knitting and sewing,
My weight wasn't too much of a problem when I was young
I'm short and always was about 10lb ish more than my girl friends
but still after my second daughter I was still size 7/8 petite
and very active camping and hiking with one baby on my back and running after the other
but after baby #3 I had some health issues that I'm still dealing with
(they haven't killed me yet) and the weight piled on.
Since then I've had many successful starts that are short lived only to end up either back at square one or worse
So Now I've had it! I have a Big Birthday Coming up in April
and the best birthday present that I can give myself is to get in shape and stay there.
