September Goals Accountability Thread

cayenne_007cayenne_007 Posts: 329Member, Premium Member Posts: 329Member, Premium Member
Since a new month is nearly upon us, it's the perfect time to set a new challenge and achieve some goals! So this September 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'm in! These mini/monthly challenges are really great. Started using MFP in March at 154 and have been on the yo-yo

    CW: 148.0 avg (current goal to keep below 150 for 3 consecutive weeks by Labor Day 9/4, so far accomplishing this)
    SW: I'll fill on 9/1 and adjust goal weight as needed
    GW: Holding 146.0 Average (or 2lbs total in the month) - slow and steady small steps over time work best for me

    Goal #1: 6 Minute Core/Ab Routine Every Other Day (Ultimate Goal of Great Posture!)
    Goal #2: 2 Exercise Classes per week, OR 2 long walks or combo
    Goal #3: Stay under daily calorie targets - with plans in place for night time snacking and special events. My concrete goal for September will be to track it all, even if I go overboard on a night binge or event food to build awareness in the process

    I've been using Happy Scale and really liking it, so I'll post daily weigh-in and average
