I slept most of the weekend but managed to get in the final part of the walking challenge on Sunday, yay. All goals reached except the exercise goal, I will do it next week I swear!

>500 calories worth of exercise each day
M-458, T-183, W-416, Th-27, F-897, S-18, Su-202 Average - 314
<2500 calories from alcohol for the week
M-0, T-0, W-0, Th-1080, F-0, S-0, Su-0 Total - 1080
>2500 calories difference for the week
M-1624, T-1305, W-1508, Th-93, F-1192, S-1284, Su-1686 Total - 8692
<40g fat per day
M-35.4, T-46.6, W-24.3, Th39.4, F-55, S-21, Su-19 Average - 34.4

Walking challenge - 10/10

Kocialapcia - 897 is a combination of walking and calisthenics. I like to do 2-5 minutes of high intensity calisthenics whenever I get the chance, so it usually adds up quite nicely if I can get it done 10 times a day.

I'm up for the no alcohol challenge, but like you said, lets choose a week carefully, 1080 from alcohol is the lowest I've done since joining this group.

Today I am 4 pounds from my goal weight. Mike thank you for coming up with a fun theme this week because I am getting bored(!) of my goals.
Big congrats on the -4!

So much to talk about today but I guess I'll hit on a popular subject. If anyone is wanting a Blizzard but doesn't have a DQ near by, try to locate a Sonic and get a blast. If you want it to be just like a Blizzard, get it without whipped cream. But as stated before, be careful, it's a calorie bomb. For the others that don't know what a Blizzard is, it vanilla ice cream that's crammed with your choice of goodness. Like Reese's PB cup pieces, Butterfinger, Oreo, etc.


As for me this week. I've been active. I workout 3 times this week, which is probably the first time in MONTHS! I've only walked once for the 3.33 miles. Did a lot of yard work. Nearly past out yesterday in the heat. The scale was up for me today so my "3 pounds lost" isn't going to happen.

Thanks Mike. I hope that July will be better. I was counting on losing 6 pounds a month but it looks like I wouldn't make it this month. I have a wedding to go to in August and I wanted to be in the 160's by then. I will get there but not by August. Keep up the good work.

Tori:
I join the others in sending good thoughts and hugs to you. When you get a definite medical opinion, you'll get some kind of a plan to follow and that's always easier. And you'll be able to focus on Fitday better, too.

Robin:
I have not been here long enough to get bored with my goals yet, and yet I also feel I have to give them more thought. I absolutely loved the Count of Three and yet I failed spectacularly at all goals this week.

Walking challenge: 6.34/10 FAIL
3 extra activities: 1/3 FAIL

For those who also struggled this week - Let's do better next week!
