Biggest Loser Week 5

Let's just say that last week was rough.  We moved and that means it should have been a great weight loss week right.  Lifting heavy things from one house to the other and up stairs and then deep cleaning the rental house.  Ya so I was up half a pound from the week before when all was said and done.  It was rough.  I would start the mornings out great.  Lunch would throw huge calories into it.  We ate out a lot.  Our stuff was packed!

This week needs to be better.  Sunday started out with brownies so it didn't start out the greatest.  It isn't the greatest idea to gain weight at the beginning of the week because then you have that much more to lose to beat your previous weeks weight.

Well this weeks challenges are to drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water.  Water intake is vital to survival and that doesn't change when you are trying to lose weight.

The other challenge is Push ups.  We can do them however we want.  Wall push ups, "girl" push ups, "boy" push ups, push ups on medicine ball, off the couch or however.  I didn't set a number but asked everyone to set their own goals for the week.  My goal is to do 100 push ups this week.  I originally thought that I would only be able to do my normal 7 "guy" push ups but I did 20 last night and it was so awesome.  I have my sister in law doing 100 with me, her husband doing 200, my mother in law doing 10 a day, some cousins doing 60 each and my brother doing 165.

We will see how it goes by the end of the week.

This has been a lot of fun so far.

Good luck to all of you trying to lose or maintain your weight.  If anyone has challenge ideas please feel free to leave a comment and share.

The mother in law decided that 10 was too little and 20 a day is better., but I am doing them on the wall lol....
