Goal setting for fun and being accountable

Just putting this out there to hold myself accountable.
I have three goals for the upcoming year:
1. SV goal: To hit GW by my birthday in mid September. I have about another 40 pounds to go, and do plan on scaling back to a .5 lb weekly loss for the last 20. I'm not sure it's realistic, but I've lost just over 40 lbs in the last 6 months, and figure 10 months ought to be enough time for me to do the rest.
2. NSV goal: I want to do a pull up and run a 10K without walking. I've run a 10K in the past, but walked half of it, and I have never, ever done a pull up.
3. Fun goal: I want to go skydiving! I am under the max weigh limit now, but figure by summer I should be way under the limit. Enough to not be appalled by seeing pictures of myself mid jump, anyway.

So what are your goals, SV and NSV? Anything you plan on doing that your weight or health met have restricted you from in the past?

    Climb a rope! That's another thing I have never successfully done. That, and rock climbing. Alright, those are going on the list!

    - Hit my GW by my birthday 06/11/16 (22.6 pounds to go!)

    NSV:
    - Run a 10K race
    - Increase biking speed
    - Be able to do burpees (with the push up!) for at least two minutes without stopping
    - Go ziplining
    - I'll have to think of some more!

    What are you thinking about for your 3 mudruns? I am doing my first Spartan Beast this year in Jersey. I am going for my first Trifecta. I am not sure where you are located but if you are into obstacle course racing and can get to Vermont you should check out Shale Hill Adventure. The course is 6.4 ish with close to 70 obstacles. Amazing experience if you are an obstacle/mud run enthusiast.

    I wish but I'm out in AZ. I'll be doing at least one Spartan in feb (sprint) and I'm looking at a super in NM but they haven't set a date yet. If I can talk a friend into joining me I'll do a Beast in Texas but I'm not sure that will happen so there probably won't be a trifecta this year.

    Hello everyone! Love this holding each other accountable idea! I want to do the down and dirty mud run again... I ended up not going to it this year even though I paid because I was too embarrassed! Total low point. Also want to be able to go to the beach and feel okay. But my main and true goal is to not give up. And developing some patience.

    Well it looks like a group from work is getting together to do a Tough Mudder at the end of April. Anyone in the Phoenix area is welcome to join in, I can send you the group name if interested.

    @mamarundrc - Any training recommendations? I've done mud runs in the past but not a 10 miler.

    SV: to hit my GW (135 lbs) by July. I have 9 lbs to go. I average about 1 lb a week (If I don't drink booze, I notice even with 1 glass of wine, I plateau boo)

    NSV: I want to do 25 push ups without stopping, wear a bikini this summer and run a 5k (I am NOT a runner)

    Fun goal: I want to last longer in each station in my no limits circuit class against my husband :wink:

    @juliaheggen Well my nerd side is going to really stand out but I've got two that I will be doing. I will have a war wizard for the Sword of Truth series and I will be doing a modified Tardis. I am getting a Tardis kilt so I'm going with a Scottish "Bad Wolf" possession kind of thing, should be fun.

    What are you looking to do?

    I do an "idiot's lantern" Rose. I have done gender bend link. Karen Gillan and Arthur Duval are coming to our Con in May so I am thinking something Amy Pond. I want to do an anime character from a video game but it's going to be a goal for next year!

    My SV is to be at or below 180 by the time our con comes June 16th. I'm almost there... 6 1/2 to go!! My NSV are to be at 165 for my families trip to Hawaii at the end of August, wear a pair of heels for the first time since I broke my back, ride my stationary bike for 90 mins, and reach my target weight by New Years.
