Setting goals for the challenge!

If you haven't signed up for this challenge, it's not too late! Leave a comment on this post saying you want to join, and then add a post with your goals on the link-up! :-)

It's time to set your goals for what you wish to achieve in this 10 week challenge. The idea is to pick one goal (or more) in these four categories:
  1. Weight loss
  2. NSV (Non-Scale Victory)
  3. Exercise
  4. Nutrition
Source

    An example would be 10lbs for the weight loss category, a certain pants size for the NSV category, a distance put behind you in the exercise category and a set calorie range for the nutrition category. You all know how this goes. :) You have until the 26th of March to set your goals, write a post about it, and link up here. Then, on the 26th, we all weigh-in and off we go!

    If you want to leave some goal areas open that's fine, you don't need to have a goal in each category. If you want to change your goal along the way, that is fine too. This challenge is all about you, and all of us coming together, supporting each other towards these goals. The only responsibility that comes with this challenge is supporting the other participants - if we all do our best at that, it will be an amazing challenge!

      1. That's all! You write a post weekly, and there will be a link-up here where you just attach it. You write how you're getting along with your goals, and basically just support the others that are doing the same. It's all just for fun and some more accountability, I hope you'll enjoy it! :)

      1. Well, I think so. Otherwise it would be hard for you to post updates, and for others to lend support. :)

    16. Hi, Maren,

      Just a heads up, I've tried twice to link up and both times my linky has failed. Is there a technical issue?

      Thanks!
