Ready For Summer Challenge!

Ready For Summer Challenge!: Setting goals for the challenge!: If you haven't signed up for this challenge, it's not too late!

It's time to set your goals for what you wish to achieve in this 10 week challenge. The idea is to pick one goal (or more) in these four categories:

  1. Weight loss - My goal weight: 140  (.8 lbs per week lost)
  2. NSV (Non-Scale Victory) -  BMI: 23  BodyFat%: 22%  A firm size 6, able to do 20 push ups, and to lose the cellulite on the back of my thighs before I wear my bikini by the pool.
  3. Exercise - continue current routine - 6 days a week, mix it up, weights 2-3 times a week 
  4. Nutrition - EAT CLEAN, eliminate sugar, NO artificial sweeteners.  I'd like to gradually do away with the points counting too, once I get a better grasp on what amount of things to eat to stay in weight loss mode.  I'm starting to see that point values really don't provide nearly enough info to be the sole basis of my diet choices.  

Today I ate 21.5 pts - all healthy, energizing pts, w/ nothing I regret.
Exercise:  Tae Bo  (-6 pts)
TOTAL:  15.5 pts

Oh, and I tried stevia today.  It's very sweet, no funny after taste, and I'm eager to bake something w/ it soon.   Thanks for the tip, Annie!  


  1. I'm also doing the challenge and am loving the idea of the accountability. I look forward to watching you meet your goals.

  2. Thanks for posting, Kristy. I wish you great success with you goals too, and hope we can offer each other that crucial support and advice as needed along the way. (What did people do before the internet? We're so fortunate to have this support network right at our fingertips!)

  3. YAY!! So glad you're in on the challenge... and when baking with stevia be sure to lessen the amount you use since it is sweeter. You can find conversion charts on-line.

    And PR means personal record. =)

  4. Ahh, yes...Personal Record. That makes MUCH more sense than Puerto Rico or Police Report.

  5. Welcome to our challenge, glad to have you! :)

  6. Welcome to the challenge, great to have you aboard!
