10 Week Summer Challenge - THE BEGINNING
And so it begins TODAY! Woo Hoo!! I so need this. I need something to change my mindset. I am tired of being fat and gross - especially during the summer! I have lots of oppurtunities for exercise and eating right and I am going to TAKE it! If anyone wants to be an accountability partner, the more the merrier! Just hit me up!!
I will be changing my WIs to Wednesday to accomdate this challenge so look for my beginning weight tomorrow. =) I wll also have dh take a before shot of me. I would really like to make the next 10 weeks count. What can it hurt? NOTHING. Like Christine said - I can do anything for 10 weeks. It's "only" 10 weeks. I can do this!
What do I want to get out of these 10 weeks?
Define your Ultimate Goal: Journal 60/70 days. Lose 20 lbs
How many calories do YOU need to maintain your current weight? 1900
Define your exercise goals: Burn 3500 calories per week (not gonna do day because some days are harder then others!!)
Define your food/intake goals: 1400 per day.
I will be logging my food and exercise at myfitnesspal.com. If you are a member, I'm pinguinlvr. Friend me. =) I will post my pics tonight. I'm also going to limit my soda to ONCE per day. I know. That's hard for me. That is my caffeine. That is my addiction. I need to cut it out. I'm not sure that crystal light is any better (except no carbonation) but I'm going to try and drink more water but when I just need flavor - I'll use crystal light. Other than that, I just want to get into the exercising habit. Even if it's just a DVD in my bedroom. Or doing some lunges outside. Or just stretching. I don't want to be a couch potato. :( I want to get back into running and running some 5Ks. I can do this. Who is with me??
