Default CC 4 Week Challenge

Let's make this a fun challenge!!

This challenge will go from today until September 8th which is a Sunday. Set your goals based on what you really need to work on. It could be weight or inches lost , foods you want to avoid , Daily Calorie intake , your exercise goals, or all of the above.

Try to include a non scale victory (NSV) so you can have something that lets you know you're making progress.

Great idea- love it!

I think my goal for this month is to be honest with myself and to track (with the exception of means that I ABSOLUTELY cannot control- such as those involving travel/lack of access to tracking tools.

Hey ladies.
The past two days I've been traveling but on track. Due to the nature of the trip I was on track with my calories and water. Couldn't get a workout in because I had a 12 hour drive to Muskogee Oklahoma. I was in a conference all day yesterday. Today I'm traveling back home. I'm sure I won't be working out until Tuesday so I can rest my body.

How's everyone else doing?

Kept calories around 1400 and did 3 miles walking to DVD both days. One pair of my smaller jeans fit. None of the other the same size do, but I'm so excited about one fitting.

Yesterday was kinda stressful. I ran out of gas ( didn't even notice it was on E, sigh) on the way home from work yesterday. Luckily my sister wasn't too far away and answered her phone (she never answers her phone, she's a texter). She came about an hour later with some gas. Then when I got home my little girl ( got two kids, 8yrs boy and 11 yr girl) was having a fit to go get something at walmart for school and my little boy was 'starving' AND the house was dirty & meanwhile my husband was taking a nap

So that was my afternoon, cleaning, cooking & a trip to walmart

I ended up going over 120 calories but I did get in a 3 mile walking dvd. Never made it to the gym but oh well, there's always today

How was every bodies weekend?

Hi everyone!
Would love to join you on this challenge. My goals are:
1) To get to 140 lbs (currently bouncing between 142-144).
2) To plan my food out at the start of the day so I have a plan.
3) To stick to my meal plan with 2-3 *planned* "cheat" meals or snacks a week.
4) To keep calories below 1700 each day.

Welcome tfu!

I am doing good on my goals, except I need to work on drinking more water on the weekends (during the week is no problem). Already nixed 1 pop that I would usually have and doing good on eating/exercising.

Hope everyone's Monday goes well!
