Week 2

October 28, 2008

So week 2 is completed.  If we’re lucky we’ll find out at this evening’s health lecture where we stand as a team.  I managed to get 112.5 points for the week.  That was an increase of 30 points.  I’m not sure if I’ll be able to increase on that but if I can stay in the same area of points that will be good.

Week 1 completed and First Team Challenge

October 22, 2008

So I’ve finished the first week and on Monday night we had our first team challenge.  The challenge was a timed relay walk around the indoor running track.  Each member of the team had to walk as quickly as they could around the track (no running permitted) with a resistance band around their ankles.  My team certainly didn’t come in the top 3.  We took 3 minutes and 21 seconds and I think the team that came in first place was 2 minutes and 20 secondsish!  Anyway Sunday night we had to submit our points from the first team.  Hopefully you checked our the page giving all the rules and regulations for points.  I got 79.5 points for my first week but I’m trying to do better for my second week.

Update – Halfway Through First Week

October 16, 2008

So a number of you have ben asking how I was doing.  So far I’ve managed to snack through the day until today.  I had the Mum’s Group over and so forgot to eat my mid-morning snack.  I have managed to get out and walk for 35 minutes with Kirsten on Tuesday, Wednesday and this morning and we also got out yesterday afternoon.  This afternoon Kirsten is booked into childcare at the gym from 3 – 5.30 pm and I have booked myself into a 30 minute Kinesis class at 4pm.  This isn’t one of the classes that has been set up for the competition but I thought would be a good one to get in on and try, plus it is one of the only classes in the afternoons.  This means that I will get about 45 minutes to do cardio before the class.  On our way home I will then stop off for my weekly weigh-in at Weightwatchers.  It will be a good weight loss over last week because of the stomach flu I had over the weekend.

I don’t think I’d mentioned that when I had my official weigh in for the competition on Monday.  This week’s weight loss will be difficult because of having the stomach flu, but if I can remain at the weight I was after the flu rather than gaining the water weight back I’ll be happy.  I’ll update tomorrow and let you know what Weightwatchers weighs me in as.  Don’t be surprised if it’s different to that of the gym!!!
