Day 29: A picture that can always make you smile

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile ~ my bf and his son. It is set as my background so I get to see it every time I go to the computer. They live 800+ miles away.

    What an awesome pic! They both look so happy. You are truly blessed!
I don't know what I would do without my boyfriend motivating me. I want to lose the weight for both him and me.
I'm sorry they live so far away. Thank goodness for the internet! Are you able to visit them / them visit you any time soon?

Day 28: A picture of something you're afraid of

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of ~ I have an overwhelming fear of the dark and of falling.

***I think this is why some things scare me more than others. My future is really terrifying. I am willing to bet that it is because it is very similar to being in the dark; I really do not know what is going to happen next.

    Totally feel you. I'm always afraid of falling. =( The dark can be pretty creepy too, but I always make sure to turn on the lights... phew! :P

    Falling can have several meanings too, but no matter how we choose to define "falling," it is scary! But don't worry! We will catch you if you fall here!!! :)

    I have always been scared of falling as well. Since I have lost weight it seems to have gotten better. But yes I can surely sympathize. Sometimes crawling is easier or scooting lol

Wednesday, May 11th through Tuesday, May 17th

Points for each are all or nothing with the exception of “R”!!! However, even if you do not reach the points required for an individual letter, you still should track your daily challenges as usual because your daily points will still be counted towards participation.

S – STEP IT UP on Thursday by completing at least 10 STEP IT UP options (each option can be done more than one time) = 10pts.
P – Post at least 5 times this week = 10pts.
I – Integrate strength into your routine by completing at least two 24/7 GYM options or five JAMs on Wednesday = 10pts.
R – Reconcile your calories in with your calories out by posting each Friday through Monday on our team thread = 10pts. per day
I – Intensify your cardio by completing 1/4 of your remaining LCW 6-week cumulative pledge minutes on LCW Tuesday (5/17) = 10pts.
T – Treat yourself to 20 bonus points by earning a perfect score on the above components!

NINJA BONUS (NB) = Add another 25pts. to your score if you burned more calories than you took in on Friday through Monday AND stayed in your calorie range all 4 days!

S = (10/10) P = (10/10) I = 10/10) R = (10/40) I = (10/10) T = (__/20) NB = (25/25) TOTAL = (75/125)


Day 27: A picture of yourself and a family member

Monday, May 09, 2011

Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member ~ This was hard, I have so many of me with different family members. This is a picture of me with my two brothers. My family and I are so close, I just picked one.

***I have done very well this week. I have worked out 5/7 days and completed most of my weekend challenge. I am getting back on track and am enjoying it and feeling better. I feel I have more energy and amazingly enough, even with working out, I feel that I have a lot more time in my day.
