Wednesday Check-In D&D Wk 5

Well it is over. The Down and Dirty Challenge has reached the end. When it started I had big aspirations for the month, last week I modified them. Now it is time to face the music and see how I did. Are you ready for this? Here we go.
Starting weight: 210
Week 1: 207.1
Week 2:207.1
Week 3:206
Week 4:207.6
Week 5: 204.6
Total Loss: 5.4 lbs
Goal for Challenge: 5 lbs
Pounds to go: 0
I did it! I really stuck to it this week and I made my goal! I am so excited. It was a roller coaster of a weight loss month, but I am thrilled to say I made my goal. It is such a good feeling to see the results of a week when you stayed mostly on track and see the positive outcome, that gives me a lot of momentum for next week. I want to keep going and see more results. I changed my workouts a little this week, working harder but for short time periods, I don't know if that made the difference or not but it shook things up a little. I think I am going to continue on the shorter, harder workouts for awhile since school starts next week and our busy life is about to get ever busier. At least then I can get a workout in no matter what time constraints I have.
I am sad to see the challenge end. I have met some really great ladies and I was so lucky to have such a super supportive team behind me the whole way. No matter what the leader board says at the end I know that the Queens of the D&D were winners and I am proud to be one of them.
There is a new challenge over at the sisterhood that starts in a couple weeks and I can't wait to see what that is all about. How did you do this week?


  1. Great job Carrie for reaching your challenge goal! High five sister!

    I'm up a smidge but it will hopefully pass soon and I'll be heading back down! Congrats!

  2. Way to go, Carrie! You did an awesome job surpassing your goal for the challenge!! WOOT!

    Changing up your workouts is good. Your body gets used to the same things and when you do something different it shakes things up in a good way :)

  3. great job!!!! woot!! nothing like the feeling of meeting your goals. take that momentum and run with it. its one of the most powerful weight loss tools our there!
