Our Adventure for the next six months!!! CHEER US ON!!!

June is Here!!!!  I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by!!!  I have BIG PLANS for the rest of the year!!!  The unthinkable happened t me on May 31st!!  I GOT SICK!!!!!  I kept working (I won’t do THAT again) but my workouts TOOK A HIT!!!  I have not been able to workout this week.  As a result, I gained 2 pounds!  If I don’t MOVE, I don’t LOSE!!!  I’m not too concerned because I’ve already lost the 2 pounds (I jump on the scale from time to time).  I have 3 Days to KICK IT DOUBLE TIME before Wednesday weigh in!!  Something really exciting happened to me!  I decided to partner up with @kthenb and apply to become the next DYNAMIC DUO      “Two Scoops” Hosted by @Skinny_Scoopers.  Guess what?!?  WE WERE CHOSEN!!!  We will document our weight loss by blogging our weigh-ins every Wednesday and tracking our progress via BodyBuggs!!  Our BodyBuggs should be here by Tuesday and we have a conference call set up for Tuesday with Kim from BodyBugg.  We will also be doing a podcast with them.  Details still to come!!  @kthenb and I are in the process of getting BRAND NEW BLOG HOMES thanks to @nomorebacon This will happen before Wednesday!!  I will let you know the new addresses!  I’m thinking a good 50 pounds should come off during this challenge!!  I’m going to give it 110%!!! We’ll see!! 😉

 I spent most of the weekend in bed (Doctors orders) But many of my Tweethearts were out there MAKING IT HAPPEN!!!  My dear friend @dailykat ran her first 5K as did @jeepjenn.  @bekkib73 ran her 2nd 10K.  My Half Marathoners were @thefitlounge , The ladies of @ShrinkingJeans @reallifeadv @christieo, @LissaJoy @MommyMo, @girlsworld, @mama_sass, @karenaVNV.  My Friends @JenInRL, @MizFitOnline, and @IAmSucceeding met up with friends to participate in Weight Watchers Walk it!  @Nadeen walked for Chrohn’s Disease!! And My HotAss Friend @MrsFatAss made it to #Gruve E Green as she “Gets Her Groove Back”  My Dear friend (and coach) Lori launched her new site @DareToBecome There is also a WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY TO ENTER

3.  Eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies/Day:  With my fruit smoothies, mega salads, and #30DayRaw meal, I’m getting this done with ease!!!

4.  Take a Lunch Stroll on “Office” Days:  I only had 1 office day and I walked that day.  The rest of the work days were nursing home days (all I do is walk on those days)

5.  Lose 2 Pounds/week for a total of 20 pounds at the end of these challenges:  I Lost 3.8 pounds this week!!!! WOO HOO!!!

6.  Hit My GoWearFit Target Goals Daily:  I accomplished this EVERYDAY!! (Steps, Activity goals, and Calories Burned)

9.  25 Push Ups/Daily:  This has Been Modified to EVERY OTHER DAY!!  My Virtual Trainers/Friends/Fitness coaches @wildfirefitness and @msjathletics felt that my arms needed a rest day in-between!!  They GET RESULTS with their clients and I LISTEN!!!

10.  Read/Comment on 2 Blogs/Daily:  This, I’ve done and its been an absolute Pleasure!!!  I plan to set up my Blog Roll of All My favorite Blogs while on my cruise (Maybe *giggles*)

“Perfect 10” challenge:  One Fact You Don’t Know About Me…..I have a skin allergy to metal.  This made it REALLY TOUGH for my boyfriends growing up because they could ONLY buy me 14K Gold Jewelry!!!!  None of that plated stuff for me!!!  LOL!!  This little fact has made it tough for me to wear my GoWearFit (Body Bugg’s cousin) The armband has metal sensors!!  I have to move the band every hour or so!!!  You can usually find it on my forearm for this reason!!

#30Daylcw……. I just finished Day 9 of this challenge!  This Challenge is lead by @BiggestLoserlvr.  We Do the Biggest Loser’s Last Chance Workout DVD every day for 30 Days!!  We update on @Pseymour’s Forum!! Its alot of fun!!  It’s NEVER too late to join!!! 

#365workout……..This was started by my Good Friend Eddie @damanlovett .  The premise behind this movement is to just simply MOVE YOUR BODY EVERY DAY!!!  It can either be a hardcore gym workout or simply parking at the back of the parking lot at the grocery store!!!  Just MOVE A LITTLE MORE each day!!!  I LOVE this Idea!!!  Anyone can start this!!!  Send a tweet Daily with how you “moved” that day!

#RethinkYourShrink………I am working on my MOTIVATION WALL for #RethinkYourShrink and TONIGHT we will have our “Last Chance Workout” Before the Weigh-In tomorrow!  (This is led by @Cunningmom {first hour is abs in the Eastern Timezone….she will tweet what exercise to do during the upcoming commercial and @ShrinkingJeans does Total body exercises during the 2nd hour)  This is SUPER FUN EXCITING INTERACTIVE way to “Watch” The Biggest Loser!!!!  Well Done Ladies!!!

Im so excited to participate in the RETHINK YOUR SHRINK challenge!!!! I am actually looking forward to the homework assignments because it will keep me active and accountable all the way to the finish line!!! This ladies are LOADS OF FUN!!! Its not too late to Join the challenge and RETHINK YOUR SHRINK with me!!! 🙂

My 3 Goals for the challenge:

1. “PLAYout” 5 Days a week! 3 cardio days/wk and 2 resistance training days/wk ( I read @MizFitOnline ‘s New Year’s Post and she talked about taking the “work” out of workouts and add “Play”….If its fun…I will stick with it!! 😉

2. Eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies each day! This has been very tough for me in the past! I am getting better with the help of @fitarella , @IAmSucceeding , and @jeepjenn = Team #30DayRawChallenge!!!

3. Drink 64 ounces of Water/Daily! This will be a very hard goal!!!! I could go ALL DAY without drinking a glass of water!!! Those days are in the past!!!

I will track my fruits/veggie/water manually in my “Fitbook” ( @BwJen let me know about this little gem)
I will Log my workouts as well as my calorie intake/food log in my Activity Manager daily for My GoWearFit (BodyBugg’s new and improved cousin….LOL)

My Non-Food Reward for completing my goals:
Hmmmmmm….This is a toughy!!!! My reward will be “Your Shape” A Game for Wii inspired by fellow Weight Watcher Jenny McCarthy!!!
