Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #11

For new readers (hello!), please go check out the Crystal Light Challenge and join on in! It’s simply a challenge to meet your own exercise goal. I am shooting for 90 minutes a week.

Every week I’m posting my own exercise update for the challenge. Hopefully you will comment below with your weekly results as well. :-)

If you’d like to be added to the challenger list, please leave your name, exercise goal, and website URL (if you have one) below and I’ll happily add you to the list! You can also email me your info to ccthoughts *at* gmail *dot* com or use the Contact form at the top.

Crystal Light Challenge Update

I’m still in the 5 week company softball league and played for 2 hours on Tuesday…I pulled a couple of muscles that I rather not talk about simply by stretching wrong!  I feel like a dork, but at least I hit my 90 minutes, lol.  I made 3 base hits and scored one run, but we still lost both games…

How did you do on your goal?

Weight Watchers Update

I joined Weight Watchers on January 4, 2011:

  • Weighed in at 176 pounds
  • Wore a Size 14/16
  • Assigned up to 252 points a week plus whatever activity points I can earn (and was told to stay above 203 no matter what).

The goal I made January 1st, 2011 was to weigh 163 or less by July 4th, 2011 and fit into a Size 12 since that was the halfway point to my end of year goal to weigh 150 and fit into a Size 10. I hit my 163 goal by February 7th, 2011 (YAY!!!), so I’m making new goals.

My current goal is to weigh 150 or less by July 4th, 2011 and fit into a Size 10 or 12. I will ultimately be shooting for 140 pounds by December 31st, 2011 and will shoot to maintain that from there.

Here is where I stand today:

  • I now weigh 157 (same as last week and 19 pounds overall so far).
  • I technically fit into a Size 12!
  • I used 212 points of the 252 I was assigned (remember, I have to stay above a minimum of 203 to stay healthy).

Thanks for keeping me honest! I hope all of your goals are going as planned!

    Sorry to hear about the muscle pulls. :-( At least you were able to get a few hits and score a run. It gets easier and less painful the more you do it.

    I hit my 6 day target for the week. I finished my race in a time of 41:00 (personal best for me). I came in 94th out of 300 (I was shooting for top half) and 18th out of 40 (again shooting for top half) in my age group, men 30-39. I was really happy with how I did and I’ve already started thinking about my goals for the next race. I’m thinking of trying to finish with a time of about 37:30.

  • @MikeS, CONGRATS on a GREAT FINISH!!! It’s been fun to talk to you while you were prepping! I bet you’ll hit 37:30 next time with no problems at all!!!
