Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #22

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 was a little overwhelmed this week by extra blogging work (that I love and signed up for, but…), so I really didn’t do much at all.  I fit in about half an hour of swimming and that was it.

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 148 (Down 1 pound from last week and down 28 pounds overall!)
  • I am a tight size 10 and moving down!
  • I used 237 points of the 252 I was assigned (I just need to stay above 203 to stay healthy).

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

  • Congratulations! One of my goals this year is to add an additional day of exercise per week. I enjoy it so much that I added two days. The additional exercise controls my weight, but also give me more energy and confidence. Keep it up!

  • Your transparency is admirable. I wish you every success in your healthy lifestyle pursuit. I really need to do a similar sort of thing to improve my fitness.

    Woot on another pound gone!! Good luck while on vacation this week. I know that will be a challenge.

    I’ve started back into my routine. I didn’t hit my target last week, but did get 3 days in. Won’t hit it this week either, but will get 4 days in. Need to buy some new running shoes. Old ones causing too much pain.

  • @krantcents, congrats and thanks!

    @Hunter, good luck if you start! It feels good after a few weeks!

    @MikeS, good running shoes are a necessity – don’t hurt yourself. Thanks for all of your support every week!

  • My brother suggested I may like this web site. He used to be totally right. This put up truly made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
