Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #17

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

My husband was in a Curling Bonspiel (tournament) this past weekend and exercised for 400 minutes or more in 2 1/2 days.  I, on the other hand, did nothing except root him on.  Even with the jumping up and down, I don’t think I fit in 90 minutes of exercise last week.

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 153 (up 1 pound from last week but down 23 pounds overall!)
  • I am still a solid size 11, lol.
  • I used 240 points of the 252 I was assigned.  Normally I use around 210-230, so that combined with my lack of exercise probably amounted to my little weight gain.  Oh well, I’ll get it off again by next week hopefully.  :-) 

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

    With all that you do, it’s a wonder you have any time to exercise. Don’t let the 1 pound get you down, life happens. Just focus your energies on this week and you’ll see the weight start to come off again.

    I hit my target last week. Had a couple really good days of running and even beat my race pace on one day.

  • Wow! Keep up the good work! You’re doing great! Wish I could start a weight watch of my own. I really need it. I’m getting big!

  • @MikeS, my husband and I were out of town since he was in a Curling tournament – I ate a lot of crap, lol. Yummy crap, but definitely not healthy stuff that leads to weight loss. I am doing much better this week and have even walked again the last 2 days. This will be a better week.

    Congrats on beating your race pace!!! Your routine amazes me!

    @Noypi, join on in! Just check in every week with your progress and you’ll be surprised how fast you start making headway! :-)
