Perfect 10

I am toying with the idea of doing the Perfect 10 challenge. Lots of the cool weight loss bloggers out there are doing it. The idea is that you set goals and report weekly for 10 weeks on your progress. Each week, you also share a random fact about yourself on your blog.

My goals are threefold.
  1. I would like to eat out less. In particular, I would like to eat out once a week at most with two caveats. First, if I am going out to eat with a friend that I would not otherwise get to see, I will allow up to two meals out a week (note, this does not apply to the daily lunches I used to eat with my colleagues). Second, I do not count catered lunches as eating out -- for example, food is provided at our bi-weekly faculty meetings; I will not count this against my eating out total.
  2. I am going to get the weight loss train moving again. I have been maintaining with reasonable success, but I need to lose weight. 255-258 is about 100 lbs. over a healthy weight for my height.
  3. I would like to keep the exercise train chugging along. I usually work out 6 days a week, and I would like to continue this. However, I would like to vary my routine a bit more than usual. In particular, I would like to
  • Attend at least 3 different classes each week (and just so I document it, I don't consider aqua abs and water aerobics different -- for the purpose of this challenge, they will be considered the same)
  • Be able to do 25 minutes on the stairstepper at once; currently I can only do 5.
  • Be able to do 135 BPM for 60 minutes on the elliptical at level 10 resistance and level 12 incline. I have no idea whether I can do this or not; it is an arbitrary goal I just now set.
So, those are my goals. I think they are ambitious but doable. Is anyone else out there game?
