Debbi and Mir are hosting this cool challenge. Now I am already in a weight loss challenge with Allan so my goals aren’t going to be food or weight related but I have some other challenges I’ve been thinking about. I’ll still post my weight every Monday like I’ve been doing but will just include both challenges. Why mess with my first challenge that’s working.
This challenge starts June 6th – August 28th. 12 weeks, 84 days.
I really need to get back to my floor exercises. I call them fish flopping exercises. I don’t think it matters if it’s an exercise DVD or a Wii work out or even just plain floor exercises. I am not going to the gym for the next 3 months, I am on hold there until September 1st. So I have to be sure I do and keep up doing something. I also want to keep up my walking but now more jogging and running. There’s also the bike. So I think for this challenge, Slimmer this Summer Challenge I am going to do this:
1. 3 days a week, 20 minutes a day of fish flopping exercise. Monday Jillian, Wednesday Zumba, Friday crunches, push ups and jumping jacks. I can mix them up or change who I work out with, just for sure 20 minutes 3 days a week.
2. 4 days a week walking/jogging/running. Monday, Wednesday, Friday pushing as hard as I can and a pleasure walk on Saturday. A total of 12-15 miles a week.
3. That darn bike. How about Tuesday and Thursday to Great Grandma’s and back with the kids. And if possible I’ll go for an extra ride in the evening. I’m not going to put a mileage on this, just out and about.
4. To continue with Allan’s challenge and losing the last of my weight. 165, that’s my number I’m shooting for. Once I hit that the real challenge will start, maintaining.
So there, that’s my Slimmer this Summer challenge ideas. I do reserve the right to change them up as I need to but to keep up with the challenge and share whatever I might change along the way, as long as I get slimmer this summer!!
Now if anyone is interested, go check out Debbi's and Mir's Slimmer this Summer Challenge. There’s already a great list of people participating.
**Now before I close I do have to update you on my loss for last week. Drum roll please, 3 lbs. 173.2. That is my weight for this week.**
I have my physical on Wednesday and am going to talk to the doctor about my LDL being up slightly and also my Thyroid being higher then last year. Otherwise I don’t have any issues and I hope he’s kind with the 25 lbs I’ve lost since I saw him last. I’m only fat now, no longer morbidly obese. 55 lbs gone and never to return.
Now take care and have a blessed week.
