Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #23

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 sooooo bad – not one freaking minute of planned exercise.  Does writing count as exercise?  Didn’t think so…

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 149 (Up 1 pound from last week and down 27 pounds overall)
  • I am a tight size 10
  • I used 237 points of the 252 I was assigned (I just need to stay above 203 to stay healthy).

I have not been getting as much sleep as normal (5-6 hours instead of 7-ish a night), and I really do think that is hurting my weight loss.  I will be trying to get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep every night this week.

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

    Don’t sweat the pound. You’ve had a bump or two during the year. Sleep is key though, hopefully you can start catching up on the z’s.
    I got 4 days in last week and I’m on pace to get my 6 days in this week despite traveling for work for a couple days. Gonna be tough to exercise the next couple days, I’m tired.

  • @MikeS, I’m tired too. But the motivating friend in me says “You can do it!!!” and the rest of me says “but take a nap too…”. :-)

    I will start sleeping next week apparently – I just can’t get myself to bed before 11:30pm…I have too much to do but I want to do it…
