Summer 5% Challenge - Week 8 of 8 - It's never over

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Slender, slim, thin, lean, sexy...what have you, never ends. I'm slowly coming to understand that it's a state of mind. A state achieved the more mindful we are. Kind of like A New York State of Mind (Love that song) but with more benefits. In summary, didn't hit my goal of 187 but for the 2nd challenge in a row I'm lighter than when I started and that's progress. If I keep this up come Christmas folks may not recognize me. Please Santa, do me a solid :)


Minus the cam and it's 195.8 lbs.

We had a few on the WRJ & Gs team that actually hit their 5% goals. To them and every one else that made progress. emoticon

To the team leaders a very big emoticon for the goodies and motivation.

Look forward to seeing you all in the fall.

    Hi, Kirk, I enjoyed being with you on the WRJ&G team. Have you considered measuring your Body Fat %? Sometimes, especially as you approach your desired weight, you gain muscle and lose fewer pounds, but the end result is spectacular.

I agree with you about the "State of Mind". It is a different way of thinking. I rather enjoy imagining myself as a sexy Italian racecar, so I fuel it with good nutrition.

    Progress may sometimes be slow, but at least you are moving in the right direction. Keep it up!

    Haha ... I like the, "Please Santa, do me a solid."

And you're right by the way ... while you may not have hit the goal ... you are still down ... and THAT ... is most excellent!

Summer 5% Challenge - Week 6 of 8 - Running again

Saturday, August 02, 2014

Don't know if it's the running again or just being more mindful of how much I eat but so far so good. Started off with just a mile several days ago with the goal to add about 10% in mileage every other day. Was scheduled to do 1.4 miles today but pushed a little longer for a little over 1.5. If I keep adding 10% should be up to speed (get it) for the 10K I signed up for in September.



Let's go WRJ & Gs emoticon

    I like the guidelines you set for yourself--I've heard that you should increase mileage incrementally. Great job and good luck on the 10K!

Summer 5% Challenge - Week 1/8 Up, up and away!

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Dang, so not the start I wanted but hey sometimes you miss before you get it. And who the heck knew that Boston Mahket made such a good apple pie?!? Also, around Thursday I stopped drinking water because earlier in the week I drank what I thought was a lot. And as weird as that sounds reducing water intake can actually drive the body to hold water not knowing where or when the next glass may be coming.



Looking forward to get to the Grand Canyon virtually and take a nice hike. Did you know at the southern rim of the Canyon it's 10 miles down! Now that's a hike. Can't you just hear all the colorful language as everyone makes their way back up. Those guides must have stories to tell :)

    I may have to wear socks or nylons when I weigh in at the doctor's office, but I don't like to acknowledge their extra weight when I weigh at home.

Welcome to WRJ&G!

    My daughter has done it and though I would have been game to try she says between my replaced knees and other injuries I wouldn't make it. That's okay I will fly over instead !

    Our kids have done that hike...and often tell about how they would never do it again!! I think I'd ride the donkeys down, though! Good luck to you...yep...drinking that water does help so many things. Good luck this week! Jeannie

5% Spring Challenge WK 8 - Or as Maxwell Smart might say...

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Missed it by THAT much. Goal was 201.4 and I came in this morning at 202.2. They say close only counts in horseshoes and slow dancing so I'll take it.



I feel confident it'll happen in the next week or two, no hurry except to get back on track with my running. I only run over 200 if my life's in danger so looking forward to getting that going again. Thanks to all the team leaders that made this round a fun one. See you all in the Summer Challenge!
