Christmas Dress Countdown Challenge Update for September 18 (end of first week)

Tanita-san today: 182.2 Initial
Challenge weigh-in: 184.2
Loss for the week: 2 lbs...even.
Exercise: Pilates x2, Walking x 3 (goals met)
Fluids: Goals met.
Calories: Oh, um, no. Had that 2000 calories day, but had enough "in range" days and one "below range" day to help make up for it. Plus made an effort to walk longer and faster to burn up some. :)
Books: Began reading the self-coaching one, and posted a bit about it.
Support: I've been reading some of the challenger blogs and leaving comments. I'm sure I didn't get to all, but a significant number. If I haven't visited you, let me know, k?
It was a tough week, but I just worked through it. I'm still not in the great zone that, ideally, I like to dwell within, but I'm keeping the faith I'll be there again, that sweet spot where I am pumped and on target and above and beyond, even. That's a nice place to be and I want back!

To all my fellow challengers, please remember to link up; the link tool is already up in a post at the challenge blog. Let's start the second week of fourteen in the CDCC with a resolve to make it through and make it to that smaller-sized outfit fitting well!

You will definitely make your goal of a size 12 dress (or less!) if you start up this one little tip I have for you - start running! It is a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! I swear by it for shedding and burning fat like you'll never believe. Just add some little jogs in your walks to a street corner or street light and before you know it you'll want to just keep going to the next one and the next one.
54 days ago I could barely run 50metres without puffing my lungs out and lactic acid pumping through my legs. Tonight I went on a casual easy 25minute run. And that's one of my short days! Give it a try :-)

I think the first week is always either the best or the worst in how good we try. 2 pounds is GREAT! You are going to get to your goal! Yay! :)
