All My Challenges ...

Finally, I have a timely update for the three challenges I'm in, so here's a quick recap.

Waisting Away in the Heat - End of Summer Challenge:

August 1st: 207.2
August 6th: 202.2
Total Loss: 5 POUNDS!

It seems like a lot for one week but it's a little misleading as my weight is always high on Sunday/Monday after indulging on the weekends. I lost 3.9 pounds from last Thursday 'til today which seems more accurate. I'm excited about being so close to breaking through to the 100s.

101 Days of Summer Challenge and the Summer Challenge 2010:

I've been having some technical difficulties with my computer for the past couple of days so I don't have a scale picture to show but here's the results for the week.

Goal: Lose 20 pounds

Challenge Starting Weight: 215
Week 1: 212.3 (-2.7)
Week 2: 211.6 (-0.7)
Week 3: 211.6 (-0.0)
Week 4: 207.9 (-3.7)
Week 5: 207.9 (-0.0)
Week 6: 209.2 (+1.3)
Week 7: 207.2 (-2.0)
Week 8: 206.4 (-0.8)
Week 9: 207.0 (+0.6)
Week 10: 206.1 (-0.9)
Week 11: 202.2 (-3.9)

I do realize the 101 Days challenge is in week 10 and Summer Challenge 2010 is in week 11 but I'm just keeping things consistent since they started around the same time, just go with the flow and don't pay attention to my crazy new math, k?

I was able to work up my intensity at the gym this week after being sidelined last week from the car accident. I'm still a little sore so I'm not going to push it too much. I'm hoping to get in a Super Tuesday workout next week if I'm feeling up to it but I'm trying to listen to what my body tells me so I don't hurt myself by pushing too hard too soon. As far as the rest of my challenge goals go, I'm making steady progress. I only hit the weights once this week but considering my weakened state I think I did ok.

It looks like the onederland party dance will have to wait until next week *please, please, please, knock wood, fingers crossed*. I know it's only a number but I'm SO CLOSE I just want to break past it and move on to my ultimate goal.

I'm rushing to pack for Vermont so I'm going to leave it at that. We're supposed to be going on an ATV ride up Mt. Washington this weekend so I have to get a move on. Sorry I didn't link to the challenges but you can click the banner on the sidebar to go directly to the host of the challenges blog. I'm running out of free space with blogger so I'm not going to add the banners to each post anymore. I've been thinking of starting a fresh new blog, maybe at WordPress, but I can't deal with that right now so we'll just wait and see what happens. I'll keep you posted. If I make a move you'll be the first to know.

I hope you all had a great week and can get out and enjoy the two days of freedom if you've been toiling away at the daily grind. Only a few weeks left 'til the unofficial end of summer so get out and enjoy the weekend!


Rock on, Challengers.


  1. Okay. Everything crossed for the step over into Onderland...

  2. See? This is what happens when you submit reports on time. ::ducking::

    Awesome results! I just KNOW you're going to break into the "one's" next week, when I don't have a celebratory cupcake coming to me. :) *fingers crossed*

  3. 5 lbs woman!! You beat me this week!!! Maybe this week, too, lol.....and forgive me but I didn't realize JUST HOW CLOSE you are to Onederland!!!! I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on you, no matter how busy I get!!! Remind me when your normal weigh-in is so I can be here to party with you! :)

  4. I hope to update my 101 days tonight - I am so far behind!

    The two books from you won were shipped separately - one said you should receive one book on the 10, the other on the 12th, and then the salsa should arrive from me directly on or before today - let me know what you think of the salsa! :D


  5. 5 pounds is wonderful ... onderland is SO close.

  6. Jo: Thanks! I would cross everything too but I'm too much of a klutz to make it through the day like that.

    Cammy: No worries ... I'll have a celebratory cupcake for the both of us. You know, take one for the team. ;)

    Tricia: Thanks. Now if I could only get into the running grove like you I'd be all set.

    LAF: Thanks. I've been working on my own "Walk in Loveliness."

    Anonymous Fat Girl: Thanks for showing me the way.

    Tammy: I know it's just a number but I really want to move past it. My weigh in days are Fridays so get your dancin' shoes ready.

    Biz: Thanks for the info. I got the other book today and can't wait to break them open and try making something from a recipe. I'm starting to wonder if the mailman made off with your salsa .... anxiously waiting to burn my tongue.

    Siobhan: So close but yet so far away ....
