Week at a Time #3
The object of this thread is to take on a challenge related to your weight loss goals for 7 days straight. Choose whatever inspires you - a certain amount of water intake, no sugar, 30 minute walks, etc.

I will award accolades for each day you maintain your goal(s) and 7 day winner awards and pounds down at the end of the week. We will begin each challenge on Monday - you can choose a new challenge or repeat any challenge for extra mileage.

We will support each other keeping in mind to stay focussed on the challenges of the day and week related to our weight loss. There are plenty of threads where a lot of time is spent on personal stories, so let's try to keep that to a minimum.

Hi I'm new here my challenge for the week is to exercise at lest three days this week


haleys 07-11-2005 12:04 PM

I didn't lose any weight last week, so this week that needs to change. I'm going to Mexico Friday through Tuesday and will not be able to go to the gym, perhaps I could have a run on the beach?? That'd be fun.

Anyways, my goal for this week is to exercise Monday through Thursday and to keep up on my healthy eating. I want to see a few pounds lost when I get back Tuesday night.

My goal is to drink my water - at least 1.5 litres/day.

Edit: I'll add another one... not sure if it counts, as it's just a one-day thing, but it's not to skip the "stress management workshop" I signed up for. And to follow some of the tips I should hopefully get there during the rest of the week (Thur-Sun).

Haley, if you're staying at an all-inclusive resort, there will probably be a gym. There is also wonderful snorkeling around P de C and further south at Akumal and Xel-Ha.

My biggest challenge at these all-inc. places is the vast quantity of food and drink - I tend to consume a great deal "to get my money's worth". But there are always good, healthy options available if you want them.

If you're not at an all-inc., fruit for brekky, ceviche for lunch, pan-fried fish for dinner... The local food is very, very good.

I've visited the area many times, and it really is pretty safe. Playa is a port town and still has a lot of superannuated hippies hanging around, so be careful at night, but you should have no trouble in the daytime.

You may actually have no desire to eat much - it's very,. very hot there this time of year.

Enjoy, and don't forget your sunscreen!!!

Wow, thank you so much for the welcome, I totally didn't expect it! :) :) :)

Anyway, I'm doing good so far, just one 500 mL bottle left to reach my goal. Tomorrow will be tricky, I'll be running errands all day, and no idea whether (usable) toilets will be available... but I'll do my best!

Monday's report: stayed on target, and even went for a 30+ walk in the steamy heat tonight. For various reasons my trip will start tomorrow instead of today, which suited me just fine. A bonus day at home before the grind of airports and flying. My fingers are crossed that I'll wake up early and go for a bike ride in the AM before leaving...


Bev in WI 07-12-2005 11:12 AM

Can I join you guys?
Really like the idea of starting each week new ... keeps me focused knowing I only have to think about 7 days! My goals are to stay within my WW points every day (22) and walk at least 30 minutes every day. Yesterday (Monday) I ate 21 points and walked 40 minutes in the a.m. and 20 minutes in the evening after it cooled down. So it was a very good day!

You are all doing very well and I'd really appreciate being a member of your group. Bev

Congratulations to everyone on a week well done and completed and good luck on this upcoming week. Stay focused on your goals and you will be able to accomplish them! :strong:


That is a great idea, I think I'm going to check when I arrive if they have a gym at the hotel. I know we will be doing A LOT of walking because my family is all in very good shape and wants to see a lot of the area, they've been there before so they have a good idea of where to go. I know we'll be probably walking up and down lots of pyramids, and planning on going snorkeling a few times so maybe I won't even need gym time.

I'm a vegetarian so the fish won't work, but I'm planning on eating an enormous amount of delicious fruit.

Oh yeah, the sunscreen is a MUST for me because I am very light-skinned and burn very easily, I'm bringing my 50 spf along for all the fun.

Thank you for all the great tips!!

Monday: Curves + tapes and I drank a gallon of water :yes: (this has been a secret goal of mine for a few years ever since an amateur body builder shared with me that he fills a gallon jug with water at the start of his day and he knows that he is finished drinking water for that day when the jug is empty.)

Today: elliptical (12 minutes :encore: ) + listened to tapes + journaled.

my food was not what i wanted it to be today. stay tuned for how it is tomorrow.

moderation + gentleness to all and to all a good night!

I am interested in knowing where everyone is from, if you are willing to share that information. Where I am, we had no Spring. We went directly into Summer and it is difficult to breathe once a door to the outside has been opened. As I read posts, I am wondering if people are walking inside or outside, and if outside where they live. I trust that I won't be hearing about any of you having heat stroke......
