Summer Lovin' Challenge: details!


I'm so excited about this challenge! I really think it'll be easier to hold myself accountable when I have others nudging me along.

Last week Sunday I made goals and it went well for a couple days, starting out wonderfully, but then everything went...

Ro @ Ro gets fit!
My friend Jessica, who doesn't blog, and is very kind about telling me what the professor says when I wake up.
Yours truly.

That's 10  11 12  13 14 17 of us! If you've changed your mind, please comment below or email me if you'd prefer!

Alrighty, here are the terms (fine print):

Make your own goals: I’m suggesting that we make a few goals (I’ll probably make 4 and they’ll probably include exercise, water drinking, and a daily caloric cap, etc.) to works towards over the length of the challenge.  They say that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail!


Just kiddin'! Ha!

Weight-loss: Since it's a weight-loss challenge, we're all hoping to lose weight, but I'm sure you'd agree that healthy habits are also important and they do result in healthy weight-loss, which is also why I suggested making your own healthy habits goals (see above!)

Length: 2 phases  -- 4 weeks each.
1st phase: April 13th –May 13th
2nd phase: May 14th—June 14th

Two phases because we can see what we learn, what we'd like to improve on for the second phase.

I really believe magical things can happen in numbers. Let the losing begin! The challenge begins on Wednesday. I guess for the majority of us who blog, maybe we can check in with our weigh-ins, losses, wins, goals, etc. on our blogs every Wednesday? I will definitely weigh-in this Wednesday. See you then!

Love,
Alexia

Ps. Also, I’m hoping for a photo of all of you taking part (a headshot works perfect!) and your favorite health tip to publish alongside? Please let me know if this is all right and if you have any more questions or anything please email me or comment below. Thanks so much for taking part! Gotta go, my stop on the L is here!

Can't wait for this! I'll post about this on my blog and see if I can get some of my readers on the bandwagon, muahaha.

I am excited too! My WI's are usually on Friday so the WI's I post on Weds will be what I weighed on Friday :p. I try not to weigh myself too much during the week...drives me nuts!

Alexia @ Dimple Snatcher said...

No prob, Jess. Thanks, everyone! I love that you're all involved :)

Candy kankles said...

Ro said...

Is it too late for me to join????

Alexia @ Dimple Snatcher said...

No, Ro! Never!

Ro said...

:-) I am making goals now!
My healthy eating tip: Eat only half of what you want and all of what your body needs.

Candace Better said...

Yay!! I'm sending my pic over and making a Goal post asap!!

Yum Yucky said...

I'm in! And I'm going to keep my goal limited to something simple, yet it will be very powerful for me since I'm not disciplined at it: water gulping!!! This challenge will help keep me accountable fo-sho, thus I will be doin' it, baby! Gulping the water like a should be.

My healthy tip: Eat cake in MODERATION. But definitely eat it. (oh gawsh, is that a bad tip? I live by this rule! it helps me to not be greedy.)

Alexia @ Dimple Snatcher said...

Yayy!

Dree said...

Oh yay I'm so excited.

My tip: Always drink a ton of water. You can keep on drinking coffee, diet soda, whatever, but they cannot count as part of your water intake for the day. Have a few cold water bottles always on standby!
