Summer Sizzle Slim Down Challenge and 5 mile challenge, week one down, week two…here we come!

and

Week 1 is did and done and I’d say it was a success. I tracked, I walked and jogged. Weekends are hard from me but I took this weekend by the horns and did exactly what I was suppose to. In fact last night I was short about 2500 steps so at 9:00 I went for a walk with the dogs and Jim came too. YEAH!!  Now unto week two….

Week 2 - (begin June 10) - "SIX HOURS OF EXERCISE"

This is what our rule is for this week. Now I am going to continue with my 12,000 steps a day and 2,000 steps of jogging and add 30 minutes of fish flopping exercise for 4 days too. I’ll have more then the 6 hours of exercise required, hopefully!! Also need to keep tracking my food and exercise. I want to be like Betty and Pam, they have friended me on MFP and have been doing awesome and I want to be that way too.

So here we come week two. All of us are ready to do our best and ask the Lord to help with the rest.

Blessings my friends.

Of course I have to share a picture. Our painted turtles are laying their eggs. In about 50 days we’ll be seeing tons and tons of baby turtles. I’ll share then when we see them.

Whooohoooo - you are off to an excellent start! Glad to hear you had such a good week!
Is Jim your hubby? It's always nice to have support when you are aiming to reach your goals - sounds like you have some good support at home! Nice!
Best of luck for a great week ahead!

Julie, you are so great! I'm sorry I've been kinda crap about getting my comments to you. I have been reading though, you get delivered straight to my email. :)

What an excellent first week. I hope that you continue to find success this next week. And I love the ticker at the top of the page is WAY past half way. You are going to reach your goal so soon!

Great first week, Julie!!! Tracking has been the key in my success. You are certainly getting the exercise, too.

I saw my first turtle laying eggs by the side of the road. Very cool. But those little ones will have to move off to safety quick. Hope ht make it. I will check in on them, too.

Have a great week two!
