Red Hot Heartbreakers DONE Girl Challenge
Friday, July 06, 2012
I am so psyched. I’ve joined the Red Hot Heartbreakers DONE Girl Challenge and I’m ready to rock it. Had a smashing day yesterday - stuck to low end of calorie range, drank water, 60 minute, ball buster conditioning class in AM, ran 5K at the gym in after noon and walked for 1.5 hours in the evening while my girls were in an art class. Leisurely pace while alternately listening to music, World War Z or Patient Zero (both recommended by Team Zombie member - shout out to DSD!!)
I think I like Patient Zero best so far. Can not imagine how World War Z will translate to the big screen. Moves a little slow for me...
I missed the "Frolicking Summer Goddesses" Challenge so I was psyched when I caught the beginning of the Red Hot Heartbreakers DONE Girl Challenge.
Did I mention I LOVE the creativity and Spark in these names? Well I do.
So, GAME ON. Going to Dance on the Grave of 200 lbs with the help of the DONE girls!!
Start weight ~ 204
One Voice (7/25) ~ 200
Relaxation (8/15) ~ 197
Labor Day (9/3) ~ 194
World Heart (9/29) ~ 189
Total loss aim ~ 15 lbs
I love the way XPHOENIX names all the weigh it days too! Just a cool little treat that makes those day more than just a dreaded day to visit with the Nemesis AKA Dreaded Scale. You can see their meanings at www.daysoftheyear.com
My other motivation to get this DONE is that I have a European cruise scheduled to depart August 17th. Damn skinny Europeans! I really don't want to be the biggest person on the boat.
Yes, I know that this trip is BEFORE the end of the challenge, but actually, I always lose weight on vacation, so no worries there.
So to that end I’m tracking every bite and staying within my calorie range, sticking to my July work out goals (posted pre-challenge, but going to help a LOT I think!) drinking my water and helping to Spark my fellow Red Hot Heartbreakers on this 12 week journey. I'm also fidgeting as much as I can and hooping while I watch TV.
Every little bit helps!!
Will keep you posted!
