Ready for Summer Challenge

There is a new challenge that is about to start called the "Ready for Summer Challenge". I was doing the Summer Chick Challenge but I fell off towards the end. Took a lil break from the weight loss thing. I realized I wasnt as focused on it like I used to be. There was just to much other stuff I was focusing on. Also I noticed that I hardly blogged about anything. I guess I figured if there was nothing weight related going on then there was no point in posting.

But now my head is in the right place. Im not just going to use this blog for my weight loss efforts but also about what is going on in my day to day life. But to the subject at hand. The Ready for Summer Challenge runs from March 26th - June 3rd. This is perfect for me cause I have a whole lot of stuff coming up in the summer that I want to look for. These are my goals:

-Weight Loss: By the end of this challenge I would like to lose 10% of my body weight. I will do the official measurements on Monday and calculate what the 10% will be.

-NSV(Non-Scale Victory): I would like to drop one or two dress/pants sizes. I currently wear a size 18/20 jeans. At the end of this challenge I would like to get down to a 14/16. I also want to cut down on my TV watching and read 5 new books

-Exercise: This will be the challenge for me. I would like to log at 250 minutes (4 hours) of exercise a week. Also by the end of this challenge I would like to be able to run a full mile without stopping

-Nutrition: This is a toughy cause I do have alot of bad habits as far as food goes. I would like to cut back on my soda and fast food intake. Also investigate this clean eating thing. I will also write down everything I eat and stay within 1300-1500 calories.

Look forward to this challenge and hope that it will allow me to have an awesome summer =D
