Hot for Halloween 100 day challenge-day 19 reflection

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

At this time, it is technically day 20, but this is the end of my day 19. For anyone who isn't a member of For the Love of Horror, this team started a 100 day Hot for Halloween challenge. My goal is to reach 241.8# by Halloween, my favorite holiday. emoticon This is 28# less than I weighed at the start of the challenge. I figured I can lose 2# a week if I actually did 30 minutes of cardio five days a week, plus two days of strength training. That's two of my five points of my plan to reach this goal. In addition, I will track EVERYTHING I consume. I tend to slip and forget towards the end of the day or give up because I can't figure out how to track what I just ate (or it takes to much effort to figure.) Well, not any more!! I've already slipped and missed a few days, but I'm starting again. The good news is that I'm down 7# from when I started, so I'm slightly ahead of schedule. That's great, because last week I was bloated-from the blessing of being a woman-and my weight was up, but my waist and hips measurements are down two inches! emoticon My other two points are to get 10K steps a day and order either two appetizers or 1 appetizer and a green salad when I dine out. I'm actually surprised at my success with the step counting, even though I haven't reached that goal every day. It seems that any day that I don't leave the house and park in the furthest spot away from the entrance, I don't reach it. Ah-ha!
This contest came at just the right time, when I was beginning to lose motivation. I'm raring and ready to go on this one and will be blogging my progress. Wish me luck! emoticon
