Summertime Challenge

Well, folks, last fall I was terrified of doing challenges because I felt like a failure when I didn’t meet my goals 100%. Yet, I’m learning that having a challenge on my plate is akin to committing to weekly Weight Watcher meetings and weigh-ins — they keep me accountable. Difference is I get to set my goals and blogging is cheaper than Weight Watchers. *giggle*

So, here’s a challenge idea I like for the summertime and I’ve officially joined up with it. Below you’ll see the rules and the goals I’ve set for myself. I’m sure you’ll recognize most of them. 🙂

This challenge comes from the site
No More CHUNKY DUNKING, time to skinny dip!
(disclaimer…that is NOT my goal, I promise. LOL -Leah)
The challenge will be from May 24- Aug 23.

Now for the rules of the challenge.

1. Post the Challenge sticker on your page and also at the head of your post when you do your weekly weigh ins. DONE.

2. Start your first post by stating what you would like to accomplish during this challenge whether it be a weight goal or an exercise goal.
My goal is to lose at least 10 pounds during the summer and workout 30 minutes or more 4 days a week. Starting weight is 199.0

3. You must weigh in every Friday(with the exception of your initial weigh in which will begin on Monday May 24) with a picture of your scale reading that weeks weight. Check back tomorrow for my first weigh-in. Though, please be a little gracious with me. I didn’t decide until yesterday to commit to this goal and the sweets have been my friend this week. So, I’m looking for my first real loss to be in another week. Just being honest with you.

Winner will be determined by who loses the most weight.
(Also, people who state a goal and meet it during the challenge will win something as well.)

I’m not planning on winning anything. I simply wanted the accountability of it and I LOVED the cool summery logo. 🙂

Winners will win something special. Not sure what yet, when I think of it I will update this. I’m thinking I will treat the winner to a new outfit to show off their new self. Still in the thinking process but I think that’s a good one.

    Good luck with the challenge! Summer time is both easy and hard for weight loss. Great weather, but lots of BBQ and ice cream LOL


  2. No worries Leah, I have been having a crap week so I don't expect a loss until next week as well. Good luck though.



  3. You can do this! I think it's great to join challenges because they keep our goals firmly in front of us every single week.
