The Spring Chick Challenge has come to an end. Here is how I fared with this challenge.
1. Commit to a NSV: Improve my 5k time. Current 5k time is 42:11. Well I can't really say if this is completed or not. I haven't done a 5k in awhile. I will try to improve this on the next challenge.
2. Fit into my size 16 jeans comfortably. Currently wear size 18. Not comfortably, but I did get into a size 16 set of stretchy capri pants.
3. Commit to a set of nutrition parameters: Cut out diet soda. I don’t drink it very often, but why not cut it out completely. DONE I haven't had any soda since the end of the year. Drink at least 64oz of water a day. Trying. Can't say that I have succeed in this one. Reduce the amount of processed foods. Yep, still working on this one, but getting better. Eat more veggies, Still working on this one too.
4. Commit to a set of exercise parameters. Run/walk 2-3 times per week. This hasn't happened every week, but I haven't given up. Strength train 2 times per week with weights or an exercise video. Epic fail. Will work on this in the next challenge.
Starting weight: 222
Total SCC weight lost: 8.8 pounds
Not as much as I would have like to lose, but I'm on my way. I will be joining the next challenge starting next Monday. The Ready for Summer Challenge. I will do my opening post separately.
