Need Motivation? Join the Challenge!

Okay...FINALLY...the CUTE as a BUNNY Easter (weight loss) Challenge Details...

O...first things first.  TOM and I weighed  in today, and loss .4, moving on. Now, for the challenge...after reading several blogs, I discovered many of us need some much needed motivation. Plus, I also read somewhere that most New Year's Eve resolutions start to fade around or after Valentine's Day; so, I decided to start the Cute as a Bunny Easter Challenge. Without furhter adieu the deats:
  • The challenge starts Monday, February 15, 2010 and ends Monday, April 5, 2010 (7 weeks).

  • According to Weight Watchers (WW) healthy weight loss constitutes losing 1-2 pounds a week, so all participant should strive to lose 1 pound weekly...7 lbs. in 7weeks (7/7). If you lose your 7 before the end of the challenge...KEEP GOING!

  • Every week, each participant must set a mini-goal. For example, my mini-goal next week...TRACK EVERYDAY! If you meet your mini-goal,  report your accomplishment on your blog.

  • If you choose to participate, please write a brief blurb about the challenge and post on your blog. Link the post back to my blog.
Any suggestions on how to improve this challenge, email me...gainestrina@yahoo.com. Let's all pull together and support each other. If you desire additional support, email me your info and I will pair you up with another challenge participant. Once paired up you guys can decide how you plan to encourage each other.

O yeah...take a button and post it on your blog. I tried to do that whole HTML thing but my head started hurting from thinking too hard; so, just copy and past the button to your blog. I also plan to  provide progress buttons, so check back.

LET'S DO THIS!

  5. Great challenge! What I like BEST about it is that it is NOT focused on a weight loss # each week (yeah I know we all want to lose) I like that MINI goal idea of just TRACKING all week. LUV IT! :)Gotta grab my bunny.... lol

  14. I'm in too! That would be awesome to be 7lbs lighter in 7 weeks! I'm pretty good about tracking, so I'll set my mini goal to be at least 20 min. of activity this week (harder than it sounds with my hubs out-of-town and me home working/taking care of the kids!) oh, and water. Definitely will make sure I get enough water this week.
