Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #2

For new readers (hello!), 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 blogged for 45 hours this week, watched a “West Wing” marathon with my husband, and didn’t do anything else with my free time at all.  Bad Crystal.

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).

My current goal is to weigh 163 or less by July 4, 2011 and fit into a Size 12 since that’s the halfway point to my end of year goal to weigh 15o and fit into a Size 10.

Here is where I stand today:

  • I now weigh 171 (down 5 pounds!).
  • My clothes are a smidge looser, but it could still be in my head. :-)
  • I used 230 points of the 252 I was assigned. (252 for the 7 days and 0 points for exercise)

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

  • Hey, that’s great progress Crystal! I too have been focusing on health of late (love those resolutions), and have dropped zero pounds thus far. So, I can appreciate your progress, that’s pretty good!

    The flipside for me is that I have done better excercising: probably 120 minutes in the last week, including cardio and weights. Maybe my weight is the same but it’s becoming more muscle-based? :)

    Way to go Crystal. Got my 6 days in again last week and upped my running distance on Monday to 4 miles.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Thanks you guys!

    @Squirrelers, it’s totally muscle-based.

    @MikeS, congrats on upping your target!

    I started walking four flights instead of taking the stairs to get to the office. It has become something that I do and now I realized I go down to the car a lot Lost 2 lbs and getting firmer.
    I don’t eat regular so counting points is difficult.

  • @NCant, congrats on the extra exercise! Firmer is good. :-)
