    Why am I doing this?

    1. Get down to 185lbs / 35% BF
    1.1 Below 200lbs / 38% BF by my birthday (Feb 20th)
    1.2 Below 190 by the end of summer

    2. Lifting milestones by the end of the year (pounds):
    - Squat 225 (2 plates)
    - Deadlift 315 (3 plates!)
    - Bench Press 165
    - Clean 150
    - Snatch 125
    - OHP 115
    - unassisted pull-ups and dips
    - jump up to handstand against wall (kipping HSPU while I'm at it?)
    - get a toes 2 bar (I'm not optimistic enough to think I can get a muscle up, though)
    ** I may reevaluate some of these depending on the results of the online meet in january, where I'll test my 1RMs for the first time in quite a while

    3. Conditioning milestones
    - 25 burpees under 2 minutes
    - 8 min mile
    - sub 30min 5k
    - not die during the crossfit open? LOL (please, not too many box jumps -_-')

    4. Misc
    - Rehab/strengthen neck so I can get back to oly lifting
    - Meditate 3x week
    - Write every week

    And how am I going to do all that?
    - Mindful eating: I don't plan on tracking a lot. But I do have a big issue with either eating too much, or craving things and then going all out on them. So, more focus on just eating like a normal person than restricting things. When I was 185-190 a couple years ago, it took tracking to get down, but it was a comfortable maintaining spot so I'm hoping that just by focusing on "maintaining" that fictional weight I want to be at, I can get back to that point without too much stress. Instead of crash dieting and rebounding and burning myself out tracking.
    - Focus on strength training and skills in a smart way. I've gotten better at figuring when I need to rest a bit more and when I can push a bit. My body's gotten used to 4-5 days a week again and I'm almost injury free, so hopfully I can build on that.
    - Journaling. I don't do it enough, and I *know* I'm much more focused when I do it!
    - Setting weekly goals and milestones, instead of just pushing for these really far away ideas. I tend to lose track or figure I'm either 1. way ahead and then get complacent, or 2. way behind, and then stop caring about it. So mini goals are going to be it!

    Nobody else has goals? :(

    Well, I wanna add one more thing to mine: Get the hang of Double Unders. I'm starting to figure out the rhythm to them, so hopefully that won't be too much of a problem to keep going :) 3 years later, it's about time, aye?

    Ugh.

    So after my bad concussion in 2016, I had to stop working out and roller derby for a while, and never went back. I gained back all the weight I lost, and an extra 5 lbs for good measure.

    So my goal is to get back where I was in spring 2016.

    I start back at derby on Jan 10, and I am now tracking and lifting again.

    I got new job with no more shift work and no weekends, so I am hoping it will help me get in a good routine.

    Goals in 2018:
    1. To lose 20 pounds before April.
    2. Make lifting a regular part of my work out routine and avoid injuries. (Not taking well meaning advices from unknown buff fellows at the gym. I am still a beginner, period.)
    3. To run 15 km at a stretch. (I found that my stamina is better than my speed.) :tongue:

    My goal for now is simply to learn to do the 5x5 lifts so I can run this program. I start Monday, and I am so excited!

    :) welcome. make sure you find the monthly 'check in' thread and use it if that appeals to you.

    dec 31 is too far away for me. i'll settle for hoping to be able to look back on the entire year and not see any time spike where my weight was over 130 pounds. i'd say 135 to allow for return-to-lifting type stuff, but i'm not kidding myself. give me taht leeway and i will fill it with cookies-and-gummy-bears weight and then promise myself i'll 'recomp'.

    it would be NICE to get there with this tendinopathy solved and my left side as strong as my right, but i dislike turning my 'nices' into 'musts', so i won't.

    Awesome goals! Marathon plus lifting, you are an inspiration to me! I want to run half marathon someday.

    My goal is to stick to 5x5 so I can get into the habit and routine of lifting.
    My goal is to get my diet under control. Make sure I am hitting my macros almost every day. Eat at a deficit so I can lose fat. Stop binge eating. Just focus on eating enough healthy calories.

    My weight lifting goal for 2018 as of right now is to squat 225 lbs (currently at 125 lbs).

    Oh goodness gracious... my 6 months traveling with no gym did a number on these. Oh and also being lazy and eating like an *kitten*
    1. Got the bench goal back in March. Got back to 105 today.
    2. Yeah.. my squats need help. I think I hit 145 at some point this spring. I got 105 squat, or maybe it was a 105 good morning (not real sure currently) the other day.
    3. I never even hit a 2 plate deadlift again in 2018, let alone 3. I’m back up in the 175 lb range again.
    4. Haaaaa hahaha.. yeah....ummm maybe half of that?
    5. Back to 2 big bands on these.
    6. I’m maybe running a mile a week, wouldn’t call that back to running
    7. Due to #6 and eating habits, im actually back to my highest weight ever. Long ways to go to hit 160
    8. I’m making progress on this one, some days I’m closer than others.
