New month knocking on the door, new challenge!
This month's theme came to us last year courtesy of @kfat1. I liked the idea so much, I decided to use it again this year. And also, it was already dreamed up, and I'm lazy. :bigsmile:

    Ok. My goals for June are:

    Maintain my weight loss (65 lbs total since HW of 205 lbs., 42 lbs since starting again in July 2017 at 182 lbs.) in the range of 138 - 142 lbs.

    Incorporate more strength training, mostly body weight exercises right now.

    Get back to going to yoga classes.

    Be able to complete 100 squats consecutively.

    I am ready for a new month!

    Exercise goals:
    4 work days/days at the gym: 2 strength, 2 cardio. As it is FINALLY warming up here, I want to add in early morning walks on my days off of work and take a kid with me for 1:1 chat time. And I want to try to get a hike in most weekends.

    Food goals:
    IF 16:8
    plan work lunches better
    Find some new recipes to play with

    I'm in. :smile:

    Main goal for June is to just keep on going on the weight loss, no matter how fast or slow it goes. Currently 12 lbs down (started my journey on May 1st). I log nearly everything, daily.

    Exercise goal would be to get in at least 3 exercise days per week. I plan to increase that but have to start somewhere first! Currently only getting 1-2 days in.

    My goal is to stay in ketosis - even though I have a few party days planned.
    Making my IF schedule more regular is my secondary goal.

    Let's do this!

    Bike. Bike, bike, bike! I have used every excuse under the sun not to haul my *kitten* out on my bike and ride the trails. No excuses - I am jumping on that bike and going at least 100 miles.

    I'm in - I have been just horrible since last fall and it's time I kick my "kitten" into gear. So starting today I'm trying to go as low carb as possible for the next 5 days as a kick start. Once my blood sugar ups and downs settles I want to start running again - albeit slow jogging since I have a bad back :)

    SO goals are:
    • Carbs as close to zero as possible for 5 days
    • switch to LCHF on 6/06/18 - up to 20 grams carbs a day
    • Exercise more consistently: walking, running, biking and yoga
    • Lose 10 lbs this month. Is it possible??!!?? I'll try!

    I missed today but will start in earnest tomorrow. My goals for the month:
    1. Continue logging everything daily
    2. Continue exercise regimen daily (run 30 minutes rather than my lazy 20 on cardio days)
    3. Get back to 16:8 more regularly
    4. Eliminate after dinner snacking

    Logged it all
    14K bike ride
    whipper snipped 1 1/2 hr
    Calorie goal
    Net carbs a bit high but ok
    No wine!!

    Got out yesterday for my first bike ride of the year. There is a 14K loop that I generally do but my goal is to go farther. Theres another loop thats probably 25-30K. Dh does a lot of biking as well so I would like to build up to go with him. (ironman training, him....not me. lol)

    @taylok23 - your #4 is key for me, I am a night time snacker so trying to cut that out is hard but I see more results when I do.
