    My main goals remain training ones: I have another triathlon during this period, a couple of long bike rides, and plan to do a half marathon on Halloween and focus on breaking 2 hours.

    I'd like to get back to losing -- I've finally decided that I want to try to get down to 118, which I think will help make me faster -- but I'm having a really hard time keeping a deficit while training this much and I don't want to push it. So I'll see how it goes and try to start losing again (I'll put in 126 as my starting weight and 122 as my goal, I think), but that might just be something that will wait until the big races are over for the year (and Thanksgiving and my birthday and Christmas are coming up, of course!).

    Just joined Weight Watchers at Work so...
    1) Log all meals & calculate points -- stay under!!!!
    2) Drink plenty of water
    3) Follow exercise schedule

    If I do all 3 of the above I should lose weight so I won't put in a certain number that I want to lose. I just want to lose!

    Focusing on whole foods:

    1. Substitute preworkout powder for matcha and lemon water
    2. Substitute (most) protein bars for homemade protein bars
    3. Substitute (most) protein powders for “real” food

    In essence, I can only use protein bars and powders when there really is no alternative and I need to get some sort of pre or postworkout food into my system and real food is not an option.

    4. Continue with yoga after work 3x/week in addition to cardio/strength workouts
    5. Get/keep weight at or below 140
    6. Do something social on my own (no husband) at least 1x/month

    I like the up intensity of workouts. I really kicked it up last night in Kick class, I punched harder, jumped as high as I could and really tried hard to push it, my instructor said She was impressed. I think I will also add that as a goal.

    My goals for this challenge are simple

    1. Get back into logging everything I eat
    2. Start exercising again now that its cooler weather. I was way to lazy this summer
    3. Drop the 10lbs I regained this year and get back to where I started the year at
