Summer 5% Challenge, Day 8 of 56

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Week 2 begins today. Weight loss goal of the week is from .75 to1.5 lbs. That might seem a little odd, but in this heat we do what we can do when we can do it. I'm not focusing on exercise videos or particular workouts as it will be accomplishing something just getting chores done.

I'm doing too good with water intake. The recommended 1/2 oz per pound is far exceeded. I can never get enough. Not because I'm thirsty, I just like it. What I thought was my 22 oz water bottle turned out to be 32 oz. And I go through several a day.

    Great post! Good for you on drinking more than you should! Chores count as exercise!
    Lugging hoses is definity exercise and in this heat.

    Everyday is a fresh start so no more beating yourself up. just make it real and it will become second nature. emoticon

    I hear ya. I wanted to add ST dvd cuz it was too hot to work outside, but just isn't happening. I have had to water every morning for a couple hours and I am just drained after that. I figure lugging hoses is a fairly decent workout :) Stay cool (as you can!)


    Smile and Enjoy the Rest of Your Day!
