This week’s Physical Challenge was posted last Thursday – we had to track how many miles of exercise we put in through Tuesday. Well, let me tell you one thing – I was on vacation starting last Wednesday afternoon, and I not only didn’t see the challenge until Monday morning, but I also didn’t do the challenge. I can’t tell you how far I walked or even how I long I walked. We did some physical exercise this weekend and over the vacation, but it wasn’t measured at all. So I lose the immunity challenge this week for sure.
While on vacation, I actually did fairly well with food but the exercise was more the unplanned, family walk variety. I had my moments, but in general for the first week, I didn’t fail completely. And that was more or less my goal for the first week – to not get kicked out. Now that we are entering the second week, my goal is to get more involved and be more active in the challenge.
I’ve been drinking my water! I know that wasn’t the official challenge, but I thought it was good if I mentioned that I did, at least, accomplish something recordable. I always start out planning to record my food and water consumption, but then I get distracted by something shiney and the whole plan fails. I’m just cool like that, what can I say? 🙂
The crazy weather has totally caught up with me and I’m at the beginning of a cold. Hopefully I will get it whipped before it takes me out. I’m also definitely retaining water this week, joy of joys, and hopefully that will get over soon. You can tell that retention in the fact that I gained 5 pounds this week. Yep, I weighed in today at 236. I’m less than thrilled.
I switched from the Burn phase to the Push phase of ChaLEAN Extreme, and I’m totally glad that I did! I had been on the Burn phase for a while because I wasn’t doing well at exercising on the right schedule. So I switched yesterday, and I love it – I have a renewed energy for it. Just like when I started in the first place. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner, but every time I missed a workout, I would start over at Day 1. I know, crazy, right?
But it’s a new week and a new start! Good luck to everyone out there in the Shrinkvivor challenge!
