BURST into Summer - Week 1 Check In

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I bring to you my first weigh in for the latest challenge at my beloved Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

SW 189.4
Week 1: 186.4
Loss: -3
Lbs to go to hit Challenge Goal: 7

I am beyond thrilled! I think what led to a great week was increasing my fruits and veggies and "UpTheWatah" -- this is what my BL team at the gym says when we are all upping the water. Since I am from NY, they tend to poke fun at how I say certain woids words. Increasing the water intake was also part of the Sisterhood's focus for the week.
I did one round of the Shrinking Boot camp so far. That kicked my butt. I am still trying to figure out the best schedule for the Boot Camp for me -- I think Tuesdays/Thursdays and Saturdays will do it since Mondays and Wednesdays I know I already have something else built into the schedule in terms of regular exercise.

I also have been increasing the number of times I walk from the ground level to my office on the 4th floor at work - AND I have started to walk them SIDEWAYS! I saw on some health and fitness site an article about how walking the stairs sideways helps give the inner thighs a workout. Sometimes I will even move my whole leg around - sort of like a round house kick in kickboxing or else just do a high knee each time. I can definitely feel these! Oh and it's a good thing the stair wells are empty most of the time. I would hate to run into someone I know as I am walking sideways with a roundhouse kick going on!

How did you all do? Let's make Week 2 a strong one!! We can do this!
