Reflection- Week 10

Friday, August 17, 2012

Some of you may know that I've been part of a 10 week challenge here on Spark. This is the final week of the challenge and our goal this week is to blog about the past 10 weeks and how we felt.

I'll be honest and say I was not a very good team member. I started out great-- and then ended up gaining 6 lbs in 2 weeks and 10 lbs in a month. I've been back on track for the past few weeks though and have signed up for the fall challenge. I did not reach my goal for this 10 week challenge, but I will strive to do better during the fall challenge.

My sister is planning on doing a 5K with me at the beginning of October so we keep each other up to date on our workouts. It's nice to have someone along side you. I've also started the Body by Vi program during this challenge. It helps me keep myself conscious of what I'm eating. I like to have a program to follow. I've been doing 2 shakes a day and a meal. I snack in between but still count calories and try to stay withing 1200-1500 calories.

Goals for Fall challenge:

Workout 5 days per week
Lose 15 lbs
Take progress pictures
Compile a to-do list for home and finish it
Run/jog a 5K on October 7th

    I agree with Carrie! I would never say you haven't been a good team member during our summer challenge! Glad you're staying with us for the Fall!

    Being a good team member isn';t about losing weight, it's about just being here and helping others along their journey. Weight loss may be the ultimate goal, but sometimes there's all sorts of other stuff that has to happen before that does.

    It is definitely cool that you have a workout buddy for your 5K. Let me know how it goes but I know know you will kick some fat to the crub!!
