Weight Loss Journey Week 11 and 12

I didn't get week 11 posted last week because I was busy over Memorial Day weekend working in my yard. It's always my goal to have all my flowers planted by then so I can enjoy the rest of the summer in all the beauty.

Week 11 I did not lose any weight. But, I didn't gain any either so hooray for me. 

It was the end of the X-Weighted Challenge. Here were the results:

I'm glad the challenge with Cruisin' for Losin' is over. It really did motivate me to do my very best. But it discouraged me that my team mates were not actively participating.

My goal for June is the same - 10K per day. However, I decided to take 1 day off a week to heal my body. I pushed my body every day for a 75 day streak.

However, I ended up taking Aleve every day to manage the pain in my body. After taking a day of rest, I stopped having to take a pain killer. I'm sure there will be days I'll take it, but I hate having to rely on it every day to manage the pain in my body. So I'll be taking a day off a week from exercise. 

This past week without being on a challenge was difficult to stay motivated. So I decided to join another challenge on Spark People. This one is the Biggest Loser Summer Challenge. I hope it is a better team and that everyone participates and motivates each other. 

I didn't sign up in time to be a "true" team member, I'm an alternate. Everything I do will not be counted toward the team numbers. I'll be added if someone fails to post their numbers or drops out. The big thing for me is the weekly goals and challenges to keep me motivated through the summer. It doesn't matter if I count toward the goal, I just need something to keep me on track. 

My team is Dazzling Diamonds!
The other fun thing I did today was join in a walk with the Boise Idaho Spark Team. We met at Zoo Boise and went for a walk. There were 4 of us - Kathy, Barb, Rachel. We are going to start walking together every Saturday if we can make it. Here are some photos I took on the walk - we did 3.8 miles.
 We were lucky to see the giraffes over the fence.
 We stopped to see this beautify display for Breast Cancer. I guess the kites move in wind. 
We were able to see another waterfall when we went over the Ann Morrison bridge. It was a fun walk, but most of all to meet and get to know each other. 

I'm still doing great, still motivated and I CAN DO THIS!
