Friend Making Mondays

So my sister frequents a blog called All the Weigh.  It's another weight loss journey blog.  It's pretty fabulous.  I tend to lurk there quite often myself.

Anyway, on Mondays, she does Friend Making Mondays.  She posts a topic, and you blog on it, then post your blog link in the comments.  Yay for shared readers!  I've decided to participate today. Fun, right?  Right.

Today's subject is Goals for 2012.  I know I've touched on this a little, but it's good to keep goals in the forefront of your mind so you don't forget them.

My goals for 2012 are:
  • Lose at least 1 pound a week.  I particpate in a challenge on the Lose It! forums, and I'd really like to help my team out by posting some nice losses.  As long as I lose at least 1 a week, I'll be happy. 
  • Get pregnant and have a healthy take home baby.  Obviously, this goal will render goal one moot, but that's ok.  I want to have a healthy pregnancy, and if that includes not losing weight, I am perfectly ok with that.  Obviously this does not mean go all discovery channel fat kid, but not losing a pound a week is acceptable if I'm pregnant.
  • Get back on track with my healthy habits.  I had a terrible eating month last month, and I also slacked on the workouts.  It was nice to "relax" a bit, but it's very hard to get back into good habits.  I'd much rather just stay in good habits from now on, thanks.
So there's my goals for the year.  So far, I'm doing pretty well.  I have worked out both yesterday and today.  I went with 1 of 4 today, and she showed me the routine her personal trainer taught her.  I found my triceps, and they were not impressed with being woken up.  I'm not entirely convinced they're not planning a revolt.  Seriously. LOL

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. My triceps hate me, too. lol

  2. Thanks for joining us in FMM today. :) I just finished a cardio workout on my bike, but I'm going to do weights this evening..I haven't done more than touch a weight in the last month so I'd imagine I'll be feeling it too. But the soreness reminds me that I just did something awesome for myself thus I'm okay with it. :)

    Don't be a stranger! :)

  3. I love these goals. Having a baby is the coolest adventure ever and TOTALLY worth sacrificing goal 1.
