Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #24

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 going to fail this one but then I hung out with family on Saturday and went swimming for a couple of hours.  I didn’t do laps, but I am counting it dagnabbit…

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 147 (Down 2 pounds from last week and down 29 pounds overall)
  • I am still a tight size 10
  • I used 226 points of the 252 I was assigned (I just need to stay above 203 to stay healthy).

I still have not been getting as much sleep as normal (6 hours instead of 7-8 a night), so I will be trying to work on that this week.

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

    Nice work losing the 2 pounds despite the sleep deprivation. I’m feeling the year-end goal by end of August. Woot!!!
    I hit my 6-day target last week. First time that has happened in a month. The fitness center at work is now free, so I can exercise whenever I want. Even if it is in the middle of the day, I can just go, shower and then go back to back. Makes life much easier.

  • @MikeS, woot for free fitness centers! Congrats!

    It’s gotten too hot (100 degrees with 70-80% humidity) for me to walk around the parking lot, so I need to come up with a new plan. I’ve been taking the stairs everywhere I go, but I see more time opening up at the end of September…
