Biggest Loser Summer Challenge 10 week review...

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

In this blog I will show what my goals were for the challenge and how I have done. I have really enjoyed being on the Lemon Team. It is a group of very supportive people. I was so happy when I was invited to become a co-leader for the team. YAY :) I am looking forward to our Fall Challenge. GO LEMONS!!!!!!!!!!!

So here were my goals for the challenge:

Short Term Goals:

-Lose 15 pounds for the challenge
-Finish my daily exercises before Noon everyday
-Be in bed before 10:30 pm
-My kids exercise with me at least3 days a week

How did I do?

I am reallllllly hoping to lose 15 pounds .. my weigh in is in the morning. I am very close to that 15 so I think I might get it!

I did not finish my daily exercises before Noon everyday

I did not sleep well AT ALL FOR THE WHOLE CHALLENGE.. My insomnia is back.. ARGGG

Most weeks my kids did exercise with me-- YAY!

I only have to lose 0.6 lbs to make my 15 pound goal for the challenge.... LET'S DO IT!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I really wanted my cardio and strength training minutes to be more for week 10 but I am still pleased.

It is strange because on my Wednesday weekly weigh-ins I never had a gain.... but on my weekly Sunday weigh-ins on my spark page I have some gains. That shows you how much our weights fluctuate throughout the week.. CRAZY!

Maybe I should just weigh in on Wednesdays... lol


So my overall feeling about the challenge. I feel that if my sleep was better that I would have done better on the challenge. I am still proud of myself ... The past couple of months have been super stressful.

LET'S GO LEMONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Come on over to weigh in Wed so I have someone to hold hands with on Tuesday in prayer! LOL! 1st of all, you have shown real dedication and commitment to the Lemons just based on your log- I have no idea what you lemon peppers are up to but, it must be good. Next, don't fret because getting kids involved on a regular basis is no easy feat. Last but not least, YOU ARE MOVING TOWARD YOUR GOAL!

    Awesome!! Wow!! You definitely earned every pound lost!! You can definitely do it :) Yea I am lucky I found my perfect day to weigh in, was always Sunday.. I have tried different days just to see, but I always seem lighter on Sunday mornings, lol! I think you should definitely change, if you see more of a loss on a certain day.

    6.2 hours of exercise a week? You are seriously rockin' it! emoticon Very inspirational :)

I agree with you about the Wednesday weigh-in. Something about the weekend always trips me up, too...

    You have done marvelously well. I am proud of you. Overall you did a lot of ST and perhaps that was the secret to your weekly weight loss. You seems to have found the combination that works for you. Keep it up! Good luck with the weigh in tomorrow!!
