End of 3rd- 5 week challenge
Well, we all reported in our end results of last 5 week challenge (06/03/2014 thru 07/08/2014)

This time we ranged from a 5.5 lb loss to 1lb. to 0 weight loss. I was at a 2lb loss. At one point it was closer to 3 lbs but than the 4th of July weekend happened!! emoticon
I did learn some things this time around. Even though I manage to hit all my daily goals 75% of the time AND followed my workout schedule of cardio/strength 86% of the 35 days, I still only managed a loss of about .4 lbs per week!! So clearly I need to have a bigger calorie deficit. I learned that even if the Spark Calorie counter says you have 300 calories left at end of day, you don't eat a bowl of ice cream to use it up!! emoticon

So my goals for next 5 weeks ---07/09/2014 to 08/13/2014--

1) Lose 10lbs emoticon

2) Do all scheduled cardio/strength training workouts
*** 86% of the time or better is the goal *** emoticon

3) Stay within my Spark Calorie Goals - --plus maintain a daily 350 calorie deficit-- (something has to change!!) emoticon

4) Track all my fitness/nutrition.

5) Try and hit all these goals 80% of the next 5 weeks emoticon

I'll report back here after Aug. 13th. My reward to myself for accomplishing all this is, extra spending money for my vacation on the Oregon Coast!! A girls gotta shop right??!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    There's only one thing wrong with your should try to do these things 100% of the time. Even if you know that you wont make it, it's better to shoot for the GOLD!

    Good luck with your challenge. emoticon emoticon
