Way back in January, I set a goal I called 30x30. I''m still only at 10x30.
I worried that by also setting the goal to Run 26.2 Miles on October 30, 2005 I might be undermining the first goal. Without being very organized about restricting your diet while eating enough nutrients to fuel your running, it's pretty easy to compensate for the running by eating more. I weigh almost exactly what I weighed when marathon training started.
I also set a non-public goal about getting straight "A"s in graduate school - I'm much closer on that one (there was this "B+" incident in micro-economics) but that also undermines the first goal - skipping a workout to do homework and bribing yourself with food to read one more chapter isn't great for weightloss.
So, back to that extension . . . . According to if I set a new goal of December 31, 2005, " The deadline for your goal is 97 days (13 weeks, 6 days) away. To meet your goal you need to lose about 1.37 lb per week." I might have to be more organized about this.
