August Goals - Daily Check In

cayenne_007cayenne_007 Posts: 314Member, Premium Member Posts: 314Member, Premium Member
(Shamelessly stole this from one of the main forums - I'd rather do it in a smaller group - it's easier to find the thread and keep up with other people's progress to encourage them/discuss things. Thoughts?)

Since a new month is nearly upon us, it's the perfect time to set a new challenge and achieve some goals! So this August I'm going to challenge myself to reach a goal weight by focusing on 3 things/habits I want to achieve, and I invite you to do the same! They don't have to be the same goals as mine so feel free to join in and make your own. I encourage you to let these goals reflect different areas of life e.g. food/nutrition, exercise, lifestyle etc.

The idea behind this is that, by being specific with your goals/habits, together we can strive to achieve them!

This is just a place where you can track your progress, get some tips, and also be accountable on your journey. If you want then you can do daily weigh-ins, but also feel free to just check in every few days to update everyone on your progress. To join just simply comment below.
So let's support each other and do amazing things this month!

Here is the suggested template:

    I'd like to join. July did not go well, I need lots of accountability in August. I'll be on vacation 8/23-8/31 so ideally I'd like a lot of focus those first 23 days.

    SW: 140.7
    GW by end of August: to be in the 130's and stay there, not keep bouncing above

    Goal #1: movement every day
    Goal #2: track food intake every day up until vacation
    Goal #3: try to live in moderation during vacation - not restrict but not let myself get out of control

    I like these threads a lot, however I think checking in every day is a bit overkill. Check in weekly for sure, and then maybe extra times when it was a really good or bad day is more interesting?

    SW: 66,6 kg (146,83lbs)
    GW: 65,x kg (for this month, I'll be happy to break my current plateau and see that 65 pop up).

    I'm adding in measuring as well because the scale hasn't really moved in 2-3 weeks (just the same couple 100 grams up and down) but I did notice change when measuring.

    So:

    Chest: Don't want to depress myself so refusing to track this :pensive:
    Band: 82cm (32,28in)
    Waist: 75cm (29,53in) - good progress, came from 80
    Belly: 91cm (35,83in)
    Hip: 99cm (38,98in) - hard to judge because I'm also trying to grow the glutes...
    Thigh: 56cm (22,05in) - specifically happy with these, was 58 last month and 60 the month before

    Goal #1: Shave of some centimeters of the measurements
    Goal #2: Work up to regular pushups (instead of on the knee, pathetic I know)
    Goal #3: Do my fav core routine in 1 go. I can do it pretty well because my core is well trained but there is usual these tiny extra few pauses I take.
    If anyone wants to join in that sub-challenge, here is the routine:


    Goodluck everyone! Work hard & feel good!

    Female 20y
    166cm / 5"5
    SW: 61kg / 135lb
    GW1: 58kg / 127lb
    GW2: 55kg / 121lb

    Goal #1: Stop eating/snacking after dinner or when I'm not hungry (substitute with a cup of tea)
    Goal #2: Exercise daily - I will be doing Chloe Ting's Ab challenge as well as walking daily and attending the gym when I can
    Goal #3: Make healthier food choices (choosing vege/fruit and also choosing smaller portions of the more classical 'unhealthy foods')

    1/8 - 60.7kg - Really excited to start, and it's so lovely to see how many people are wanting to join in! Today was pretty good and I started the day with my workout which was fun. I bought a cookie at lunch (not very healthy) and totally regretted it, but otherwise I was pretty healthy and stuck to my calorie counts. Also currently enjoying my tea instead of snacking which I'm really proud of! Would have been so easy to give in as I'm pretty exhausted but yay for tea! :)

    OK, 8/1 here we go:

    SW: 109.4
    BF: 21.6%
    GW by end of August: 107
    GW final: 105
    GBF final: 20%

    Goal #1: OTF 3x week
    Goal #2: Lower body fat to 20%
    Goal #3: Reduce/eliminate alcohol consumption for month of August (me too!!!)

    8/1 109.4/21.6%

    I was down consistently at 21.1% but I got on the scale today and it was 21.6% :(
    Is it because I changed my macros? Increased my carbs and protein? Not getting a hang of fat control?? Not sure.
    But I am determined to bring it down.

    I have been looking for a challenge and perfect way to start with it being the 1st of the month.

    SW:149
    End of August GW:140
    Real GW:135ish (I would like to stay between 140 and 135)

    Goal #1:at the end of August my work is doing a body composition test and I would like to get the points for being in the healthy range of body fat.

    Goal #2: less “cheat meals” on the weekends, I really struggle there.

    Goal #3: just really try to eliminate that extra unhealthy snack just because I’m bored. Biggest weakness!!

    1/8 -149.2, let’s do this!

    Thanks for starting this! I’ve trying to lose those last 10 pounds forever (5+ years since hitting TW). Normally I’d be “uh whatever” like I’ve been doing but dr tells me I need to lose those 10 lbs for my health (arthritis in knees). So here I go...

    SW—169
    GW — 160
    GW for August— 167 (I would love to see 166)

    Goal #1 — Stay within my calorie budget
    Goal #2 — Meet my step goal everyday
    Goal #3 — Set up Mealless Mondays (for healthier protein plus leftovers for lunches)
