Summer Challenge 2010

I joined Kandice's Summer Challenge 2010 at No More Chunky Dunking, Time to Skinny Dip!
The challenge starts on May 24th and ends on August 23rd.

For the first time in my weight loss career (yes, I've made a career out of it) I haven't put a timeline on my weight loss because I didn't want to get in the usual trap of being discouraged and giving up if I don't hit the right mark by the deadline but it's good to have goals so I'm going to make a few just for this challenge. My goals for the challenge are:

1. continue to lose an average of 2 pounds per week (13 weeks x 2 lbs. per week = 26 pounds)
2. continue to hit the gym at least 4 days per week (60 minutes cardio and weight training)
3. increase cardio to 99+ minutes at least once a month (Tuesday challenge)
4. hike, bike, walk or jog at least one day each weekend
5. consume more veggies, more fruit and more water
6. eat less processed crap and avoid anything with HFCS

1. Post the Challenge sticker on your page and also at the head of your post when you do your weekly weigh ins.
2. Start your first post by stating what you would like to accomplish during this challenge whether it be a weight goal or an exercise goal.
3. You must weigh in every Friday (with the exception of your initial weigh in which will begin on Monday May 24) with a picture of your scale reading that week's weight.

So, here's my starting weight for the challenge:

I like the thought of being well under 200 pounds by the end of the summer. It's been way too long since I've seen those kind of numbers.

Stop by Kandice's blog to check out the prizes and other details. I bet she would extend the start deadline if you want to join in.

Have fun!


  1. Thanks for joining! I have a few people who are out of town and won't be joining until June 1st so late comers are just fine. This should be fun and plus it will take me a few weeks to get going on this weight loss track hardcore since I've been being lazy and careless for awhile now. LOL. Thanks again!


  2. Hi MB. Yes, I've made a career out of it too :( Wish I'd made a career out of *maintaining*.

    Good luck with the challenge!
