What is YOUR Next Challenge?

I just wrapped up a challenge that really started in May.  I'm feeling good and enjoying the confidence that comes from achieving a goal. 

Now, I have some other things that I am working toward, but I'd like to turn the spotlight on you.

What is your next milestone? 

What big goal are you working toward? 

What is the next big challenge that lies ahead of you?

I'd love to hear it and cheer you on!

I'm on Day 7 of the 30 Day Shred challenge. I'm going to make it all the way through that. I'm conquering my scale obsession and not letting the number rule me. So, my current challenge - making it last a lifetime!

An unspoken goal is to eat healthy religiously. I am good for a month then fall back into crap. Currently submerged in crap haha.

Nice job once again on the weight challenge. That is a huge accomplishment and you should be very happy with your success.

Hi Clyde! I'm 6 lbs away from my first mini-goal, which is 10% loss from my initial weight (or 30 lbs). I'm down 24 so far. I'd like to ideally achieve the mini-goal by my late October doctor appt. In conjunction with this, I am also 8 lbs into a 60 lb challenge, which ends August 20, 2011. My next mini-goal, after knocking out these next six pounds? 247 lbs (no timeframe on that). I always have a mini-goal, mid-range goal, and of course the ultimate (long-range) goal.

My first marathon is a goal I'm working towards right now.

And a side goal is to figure out how to eat for distance running...how to fuel my runs.

congrats on all your successes friend

Christine said...

YAYYYYY!!!! CONGRATS CLYDE! You made it to the ipad challenge! and you met your goal ON THE DAY you set! That's pretty awesome! i'm so proud of you!

As for me...I only have one goal left...100 pounds lost and then I'll be at my goal weight. Only 10 pounds left to go. 225 pounds to 125 pounds. The reward: a trip to Las Vegas. But I don't have a timeframe for this to happen. The sooner the better, but hopefully by February.

Today I am starting "What Can I Do in 100 Days" inspired by Tigerlilly. MY version of it is no booze, healthy eating, lots of water, 5-6 workouts a week, a healthy choice photo and a confession. I'll be tracking my weight and measurements but this is all about getting my head on straight and less about the size of my ass. And in 100 days................

I leave for Honduras! :D

I just registered for my first half-marathon, this Halloween. Though I haven't trained for it yet, I'm doing it solely for the cool finisher's buckle they have (I'm easily tempted).

long term?
onederland and
passing 200 lbs lost...or 175 sounds good too :)

short term? keep up my fitness hours per week without classes to hold me accountable this fall... while I look for more work/hours. Focus focus focus.

Bruce said...

Congrats Clyde on your iTouch. My goal is to run a half marathon on October 30th (my first). I have lost over 120 lbs and am working on 150 lbs total. The running and eating right has made the big difference. Keep up the great work! Don't rest on your laurels too long! :)

Madame Cur said...

My goal will be to eat better and track with more regularity.

This is a good idea, Clyde! I’ve been floundering a bit and a few definite goals, in my personal life as well as health, could help me feel more solid.

Allan said...

I have challenged myself not to make fun of the 4 people that I intensely follow in blog land, monitoring their success or failures at weight loss. I took this challenge this morning, and I hold it dear to my heart. No matter what, I will try to behave.....

Allan said...

Almost lasted an hour there, and tonight, I will blast someone for being ridiculous !!! Oy, bad challenge

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Nice work on your challenge

My goal is to learn to run again

Syl said...

the shred oh that shred that's my challenge ;-).
I also hope to finally make it to goal!

Jo said...

Congrats on the ipad, Clyde.

I have a couple of challenges in my head, but have not committed to them yet. I need to get off the fence.

Dianne Stauber said...

Congrats again on your challenge, Clyde!!

My next goal: the 330's. I started at 381 and each month I aim for the "next set of tens" on that scale. This month I'm in the 340's, so next stop: 339 or better! Weigh in day is 9-15-10.

Current fitness goal: Workout CONSISTENTLY. Two rest days a week. So far, so good...I'm kick'in ass.

Next semi-big goal: 329 or better by October 15th. That'll be 6 months that I've been on this challenge with my brother.

Next BIG goal: 299 by Christmas. Peace on Earth and 299 on the scale. :-) Amen!

Follow my progress here: Battle of the Butt
I need all the support I can get! :-)

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Big goal is my first marathon in December... but short term, I have 4 race weekends in a row starting this weekend... just want to keep motivated and keep moving!

When does the iTouch arrive?

spunkysuzi said...

I'm 31 lbs from my goal weight and i'm challenging myself to do it by January 1, 2011!

Raegun said...

I'm doing this 100 Days Challenge where I'm focusing on getting in 3 runs and 2 strength training sessions per week. The next BIG goal I'm working on is to lose 25 pounds by Christmas.

Congrats!!

I'm currently on Day 7 of my 30 Days of Biking challenge, corresponding with an actual organized challenge..but I'm doing it on my own. My first challenge, started on June 16th, was to bike 500 miles. I'm at about 345, and should reach 500 this month. I will probably make 1,000 Miles Biked my challenge after I reach 500.

Coincidently, 500 miles is considered the number for 'beginners' yearly miles ridden. I'm excited to reach something beyond that.

RockStarTri said...

My next challenge is getting through tomorrow keeping focus on my goals. Then the next day. And so on.....

I Said So... said...

working out for 30 days straight.
short term: losing 6 pounds by the end of Sept.
Long term: weighing 150 by the end of Feb.

good luck to you.

That carpet really tied the room together.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Next challenge - Lobsterman Oly distance. Long term - stay motivated through winter, maintain my weight over the winter (I always gain back what I lose in summer training. NOT THIS YEAR!), and far off, Ironman Lake Placid.

Janet said...

I'm on a "count down to Kindle" Challenge. 20 Lbs earns a kindle - only 12 more to go!

Bob said...

I am participating in the Treat Free September Challenge that was challenged by Dawne at "It's My Time". I am also trying to focus on excercise by joining a gym tomorrow. We will see.......

ThatNoiseInYourEar said...

Nice job Clyde. Your commitment and your patience paid off. Keep moving. No slugs allowed. Onward and downward!

Patrick Mahoney said...

In the short term, staying awake w/o caffeine to get my 8 mile run today. In the long term, two more triathlons this year (Sprint and Olympic), a half marathon in Feb 2011 and a Half Ironman in June 2011. Oh yeah, also a sub 38 min 5 mile run next month. I guess I have a lot going on...

Patrick said...

My next challenge is really week to week; just drop 1.5 pounds a week, or more. Of course as I think you know I reward myself for every 10% progress I lose towards my overall goal of 121 pounds lost. My rewards are here...
