Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #4

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 made all 90 minutes!  Walking helped.

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 150 and fit into a Size 10.

Here is where I stand today:

  • I now weigh 166 (down 10 pounds!).
  • My clothes are looser and I measured 2 inches less in my waist.
  • I used 208 points of the 252 I was assigned. (I am going to start ignoring exercise points so I’m not tempted to use them)

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

    Fantastic!!! Don’t think hitting the July 4th target will be much of a problem for you. You might just have to adjust your goal. :-)

    I managed to get my 6 days, despite the weather. I increased my running pace this morning. When I was at the Red Cross on Sun, my blood pressure was 96/62. I guess the exercising is paying off.

  • @MikeS, thanks! I’m hoping to get down to 150 by July 4th now but I won’t officially change my goal until I hit it. :-)

    Dang, nice blood pressure!!! It’s nice to be healthy. :-)

  • You truly are inspiring. I hopped off the computer and went to the hotel gym after I read your last week’s update.

    I’ve been working out more, but blogging less. It seems that I don’t have time to do both right now as I only have the early morning time to do both of these things. Today I can barely move my legs from PX90, plus I have a physical therapy session later today.

  • @First Gen, there is just not enough time in a day…

    Good luck with physical therapy!
