Shrinkvivor Challenges #2

Yesterday they announced the challenges for week two of the Shrinkvivor contest.

Fitness Challenge – Keep track of minutes of exercise. I like this one! With miles it was hard because I am a rather slow walker, and some days I didn’t get home to walk while it was light out, and I am not prepared to walk in the dark yet. So minutes will be nice because I can do the Wii if it is dark or rainy. And my walking won’t seem as pathetic!

So here is my plan.
Thursday - 30 Minutes of Wii
Friday - 1 hour walking
Saturday - 1 hour walking
Sunday - 3 hours walking
Monday - 30 minutes of Wii
Tuesday - 1 hour walking, 30 Minuets of Wii

Non-Fitness Challenge – To not go through the Drive Thru. Another one of my major problems! I forget my lunch, or decide I don’t want it so I go at lunch. I have a meeting or something after work so I just stop and pick something up in the evenings. This will be a good one for me to focus on this week. I will say that I am making an exception for my Diet Coke on Saturday and on Monday. I have been wanting my Mickey D’s Diet Coke ALL week but have been waiting to pick one up on my way to a party on Saturday night.

Shrinkvivor Week #2 Weigh In

Current Weight: 271.2 lbs
Previous Weight: 269.4 lbs
Weight loss: +1.8 lbs
Week one of the challenge is done, and I didn’t do to spiffy L

I didn’t do a GREAT job of tracking what I ate, and my water intake was only so-so, but I wasn’t expecting a gain that is for sure!

As I told the members of my Tribe, I am not going to let that number get me down. I will do better this week and re-focus.

Last week the Physical Challenge was miles – how many you could walk/run. So for me that was walking – and I think I did pretty good. Of course not I can’t remember what I actually came up with as the total. More than I have done in the last few weeks combined though I think!!

The Non-Physical was drinking half your weight in ounces of water. As I mentioned earlier I didn’t do so good at that one! I am really bad on the weekends and then I have been crazy busy at work, so I forget to drink!

Here is to a better week!!

Weigh In Wednesday

Current Weight: 269.4 lbs
Starting Weight: 303.6 lbs
Weight loss total: -34.2 lbs

I weighed in today for the start of the challenge, now to start seeing that number going down again!!

So here are my goals for the week –
*Not eat fast food
*Drink 64 ounces of water a day at LEAST
*Get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day
*Track what I eat (even if I don’t know the calories, TRACK IT)

I am going tonight to look at new walking shoes. I have A LOT of miles to put on them in the next 40 days!! I have been putting it off, but tonight is the night.

I also am planning to walk 4 miles tonight, I keep stopping at 3, so I am going to try a different location to see if mixing it up helps. I sure hope so!

Hello again!

I have joined the Shrinkvivor Challenge on Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I am part of the PINK Tribe! I have done a few of these challenges, but haven’t really GOT into them before, but I think this one will be different. I am ready to FOCUS again, I have scales at home so I can do the Wednesday weigh in that they do instead of my Thursday night.

So far the “tribe” seems to be chatty and into it, and THAT is what I need. I need some kinda of motivation/support. So I hope to not only get back on track back to also meet some new on-line friends. I feed off of people in all parts of my life, so I am hoping that I can make some connections.

So tomorrow morning will be my start for this challenge. I will have to face the number and move on from there!

Good Luck PINK Tribe!!!!
