Mo's Getting Ready for Summer Challenge

I am getting on-board with this Getting Ready for Summer Challenge.

Have to make this short and sweet - since I am rushing off to here and there and everywhere - still no good news on the job front, so just keeping myself busy with all the other things that need to be done and wishing for more interviews, but for the time being just staying afloat.

Weight Loss - Drop 2 pounds this week. It can be done, because, well, I have not been dedicated in several weeks.

Exercise - Walk each and everyday for at least one mile. Did a 3 mile walk with the neighbor ladies today and yesterday was a last minute walk to my sons school for lunch - 2 miles in less then 40 minutes!! I will be incorporating other exercise routines into the rest of this 8 weeks left on this challenge, but for now going to work on the walking. More to come in the next week.

Nutrition - for this week I am going to work on the 8 glasses of water a day factor. I have really been awful in getting in my water, so now this is my challenge for the week - 8 glasses a day keeps me happy!!

Non-Scale Victories - There is a very knowing thing that you should try to get in 10,000 steps into your day. Take a short walk, park the car further away from the store as you run errands, and so many more ways to get in those 10,000 steps. So, that is my NSV for this week - 10,000 steps each day. I dug out my walking counter and have had it on my belt loop since this morning and already have 5200 steps. Not only is this an NSV, but it will show up on the scale as a plus, too - :)

Unfortunately I am not proud of my weigh in number at the moment - but it is what it is - 248 as of this morning.

I am still here, working on my goals and thanking the ladies with the Getting Ready for Summer Challenge. Looking forward to my next 8 weeks!!!! Wishing everyone a wonderful week!!!!
