WIW - Spring Fling!

Sisterhood Spring Fling Challenge

Today starts the first Day of the Sisterhood team challenge.  I'm super excited to get started, but first some Olympic challenge house keeping.

There is a tiny little matter of the medals I won.  *runs to twitter to make sure she won something*

I won 2 bronze medals in the Shrinking Jeans olympics:

Shrinking Jeans Olympics

  • completing 96 pushups in 3 minutes
  • cycling 6 miles in 24:10
I claimed 3 silvers:

Shrinking Jeans Olympics

  • holding a wall sit for 5:36
  • running in the 4 X 1 mile relay (team time 37:36)
and the medal (of any color) I'm most proud of...
  • completing the mini-tri (swim 500M, bike 12 miles, run 3.1 miles) in 1:54:30
Finally for my gold stash:

Shrinking Jeans Olympics
  • 1/2 marathon relay (or 3.28 miles each) team time 2:17:05
  • crunches in 3 minutes 224
Now on to the future challenge.  It looks like the teams haven't been put up yet, but since I've got a busy day ahead of me I'll get on with the way in.  (Please forgive me if I don't get to your blog today.  I'll try to catch up tomorrow I promise!)

Last week: 129
This week: 125.4
Goal weight: 120

I lost 3 and a half pounds!!  Not sure what that was about - I don't think I really lost that much in fat.  Maybe it was water weight, maybe it was whatever I was holding on to from stress.  Or maybe (just maybe) I've been doing it right for a few weeks and it took changing things up with the Olympics to really push my body to get rid of that fat.

Who really cares - I lost over 3 pounds!!!

*does happy weight loss dance*

Now my goal weight doesn't seem so lofty and impossible any more.  Plus I'm banking this for motivation in the future.  When weight loss is stagnant and I want to give up or compromise my goals - just keep pushing.  It will happen.

Never give up.  Never surrender!!

So, how'd you do this week?  I'd love to come celebrate with you (or encourage you if you had a bad week - it'll get better, you can bank on that!)
