100 DAY CHALLENGE
Sept. 8, 2014 thru Dec. 31, 2014

Here's my challenge for the next 100 days:: ( it is actually 115 days~ we have decided to allow 15 "pass days" for holidays, {cuz ya know this challenge will go through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas AND New Years!! yikes!!} also allow for vacations, sick days etc) life is going to happen!!

SHORT TERM GOAL: Get out of "OBESE BMI " and enter into "OVERWEIGHT BMI" range...

MID TERM GOAL: Reach an overall weight loss of 50lbs....

LONG TERM GOAL: Reach an overall weight loss of 70lbs which will put me in the "HEALTHY BMI" range & maintain!

To reach these goals I'm going to:

1) Have a calorie deficit ranging from 340 - 420...going to mix it up.

2) So I'll be tracking all my nutrition and fitness.

3) workout! I've got the cardio down, now it's time to get serious about strength training. I've come up with a few programs.

4) I'm going to take before and after photo's AND measure...

5) working towards a 100% success rate!!

As a reward, we thought it might be fun to rent a cabin and go snowshoeing for a weekend! Probably in Jan. or Feb. 2015..

Woo Hoo here I go!!!

End of 4th - 5 week challenge

I can't believe how fast this last 5 week challenge went, doesn't hurt that it ended with my trip to the beach!! So I'm posting the results of the goals I set:

1) Lose 10lbs---I lost 4lb....

2)Do all scheduled cardio/strength training workouts 86% of the time---I succeeded 80% of the time...

3) Maintain an average daily deficit of 350 calories for 5 weeks -- I averaged a deficit of 347!! Not too shabby :)

4) track all my nutrition and fitness---I did this 100% of the time!!

For my efforts I did reward myself with a little extra shopping cash!

Next up: A group of us are going to tackle a 100 day challenge, starting Sept. 8th. I'm taking a couple week maintaining period than back at it!!

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!! 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!!

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

1) Lose 10lbs

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

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

4) Track all my fitness/nutrition.

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

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??!!!

My new goals are broken down into 5 week blocks. There is a group of us who meet weekly. we are challenging, encouraging & holding each other accountable. We are all shooting to loose 10lbs in 5 weeks.
First 5 week challenge just ended on Tues. (June 3, 2014)
We ranged from a 7lb loss to 2lb loss. I lost _3.5lbs_. Some were down on themselves, but ultimately we ALL LOST!! And were all moving forward towards better overall health ,making positive lifestyle changes & learning what works & what doesn't work. So I feel it's a win, win!!
Our 2nd 5 week block began on Tues. 06/03/2014 ending July 8, 2014.
My goals are: 1) Lose 10lbs
2) Do all scheduled cardio/strength workouts.
3) Stay within my daily Spark Calorie Goals
4) Track all my fitness & food

I'll report back here and update my results on July 8th. :) My ultimate goal is to be down as close to 20lbs as I can in 10 weeks when I leave for Beach House Vacation :)

Hey there,
You asked how my spark plan is working and really its non existent. I've gone from 145 lbs to 180 lbs in the last 18 months. I am totally out of shape, my back hurts all the time and I'm exhausted. I'm trying to get going here again.

Hi there -
I just had a lung function test today and found that my asthma is bothering more than I had even come close to realizing. I honestly told them I've not used my inhaler and had been having zero problems. Luckily the doctor does a function test on all of her new patients! Geez. My lower lungs were at like a 57% function. I am starting a new medicine so hopefully thing start to improve over the next month. I am hoping maybe I'll feel less tired if the whole oxygen thing improves.
Kids are busy and I use that as my excuse to not exercise and to eat whatever I want. Just tried out for Wizard of OZ which is the Grandstreet Christmas show this year. I've got a Winged Monkey #2/Oz Kid and a Munchkin City Father #2. I guess we will see what all that entails, lol. They are excited.
Both girls are doing scouts and all 3 are playing soccer until about 10/12 when things slow down a bit (maybe?). Oldest may start swim team at the Y again at the end of September. emoticon emoticon

A quote from the Dalai Lama

"There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed.
