Week One Check In/ Week Two Goals

Hi, there! :)

How was your first week? Did you meet your goals? Did you fall short of some?
If you did, don't worry, it is all a part of the process.

Please create your post with how week one went, how your mini challenge went, and your new goals for week two. Then, come back here and add your link to the linky below.
For an example of what to post, feel free to view my post at Sarah Is Getting Fit

Also, the mini challenge for Week Two:
Do a workout that you don't normally do, mix it up!
It is important to keep your body guessing, so having a large arsenal of calorie burning activities can be very helpful during weight loss. This can even help you avoid plateaus!

Good luck this week!

Link up your progress from Week One & your goals for Week Two here-

Challenge Week One! (link up)

Welcome to Week One of the Ready for Summer Challenge!
To start the challenge off, we want to encourage everyone to break your larger challenge goals down into bite-sized goals each week.
For example, if your goal is to lose 15 pounds over the whole challenge, your weight goal for week one might be to lose a pound and a half. :)

We will have a link up every Sunday for you to link to your blog post, including a check in for the previous week and your goals for the next one.

Remember, you can pick and choose the goals you want for the challenge, you can use some of them, one of them, or all of them. It's totally up to you, but we have four goal categories:

Weight Loss Goal
Non Scale Victory Goal
Nutrition Goal
Fitness/Exercise Goal

Each week, we will also have a mini challenge that you can participate in if you'd like.

Week One's Mini Challenge is to try a new vegetable, fruit, or other healthy dish of your choice, that you've never had before.

Feel free to get creative! Let us know what you tried at the end of the week!

A good site to get new recipes from is

So, below you can link up your goals for Week One!
For a better example of what to post about, feel free to check out mine and Maren's posts. :)

Setting goals for the challenge!

If you haven't signed up for this challenge, it's not too late! Leave a comment on this post saying you want to join, and then add a post with your goals on the link-up! :-)

It's time to set your goals for what you wish to achieve in this 10 week challenge. The idea is to pick one goal (or more) in these four categories:
  1. Weight loss
  2. NSV (Non-Scale Victory)
  3. Exercise
  4. Nutrition

    An example would be 10lbs for the weight loss category, a certain pants size for the NSV category, a distance put behind you in the exercise category and a set calorie range for the nutrition category. You all know how this goes. :) You have until the 26th of March to set your goals, write a post about it, and link up here. Then, on the 26th, we all weigh-in and off we go!

    If you want to leave some goal areas open that's fine, you don't need to have a goal in each category. If you want to change your goal along the way, that is fine too. This challenge is all about you, and all of us coming together, supporting each other towards these goals. The only responsibility that comes with this challenge is supporting the other participants - if we all do our best at that, it will be an amazing challenge!

    Details for the Ready For Summer Challenge!

    This challenge starts Monday 26th of March, and lasts until June 3rd. That's 10 weeks of challenge fun for you!

    If you choose to participate, we will have four basic goal categories:
    • weight loss goal
    • non-scale goal
    • exercise goal
    • nutrition goal

    You can set one or more goals for all of these categories, or pick and choose. The challenge will start off by everyone posting their goals and linking them up here. This will happen around the 26th of March. Then each week we will host a link-up where you can post your results for the week and your goals for the next. Typical challenge stuff. You can start thinking about what kind of goals you want to set, and what is realistic for you to accomplish in 10 weeks. We will have weekly mini-challenges, these are completely voluntary!

    Here is what you do to join in:
    • Sign up with a comment on this post! We will add your blog to the challenge blog roll.
    • Add the icon below to your blog, if you haven't already.
    • Write a post about joining, and encourage others to do the same!
