RFS Challenge Begins

Well technically it begins tomorrow but I'll be using my WW weigh ins to judge my weight goal and this week I was down 1.8 so I'm starting this challenge at 177.8.

Now my ultimate goal is 20lbs down so that's 2lbs a week. To do that I need to be focused and I'm talking military like focus. Which I'll get to in a minute.

Activity wise this weekend it was all about the dogs. Yesterday I took the dogs for an hour walk plus the 40min walk minus dogs to WI and back.

Today I took the dogs for another hour walk. They went home at noon and while I'm going to miss those little guys and I only had them for two days.

I did get a bit of additional walking in as after the dogs left I went to MEC to get a different back pack.

One of my co-workers had this one and I liked it immediately. The other one I bought wasn't quite right so it will have another use. What I liked about this one is has laptop pocket at the back and the main compartment is pretty roomy. It will road tested tomorrow. I did ask him if it was o.k if I went out and got the same one. There were only 2 left in the store so pretty popular I think.

I then booted it on foot from MEC to the mall as I wanted to go to Shopper's Drug Mart.

Last week I also got my new luggage. With all the travelling I'm doing this year I decided to upgrade my packing style. The luggage is Revolution Elite from  I love the green and the 10 year warranty.

I also got packing cubes, a luggage scale and shoe bags from

Now on to the challenge. My goal for this week is to hit 200% of the goal I laid out so that means. Tracking, vitamins and minimum 2L of water, that also means activity 6 days a week. 

I'll doing day one again of the C25K on Tuesday as I didn't get day 2 in this week. 

I have badminton tomorrow, C25K on Tuesday, I need to do an early morning workout on Wednesday as I fly home that day due to meetings in Calgary so that might be C25K day two just due to scheduling. Thursday I have to work in Calgary and have an after work shindig I need to go to. Friday I also need to go into work even though it's my day off for a 9-2 meeting but I'll pack my gym bag and workout after the meeting and do C25K day 3, if the weather is nice I might just come home and do that as I can leave at 2pm. 

So Thursday and Friday will be challenges this week. Thursday because it's night out but the good thing about working on Friday is that it can't be late. Friday is a catered lunch. I'll need to stay focused and do some mental rehearsing for those two days. 

Alright time for me to wind down as I need to be up at 3:30 am. 

Hope you had a great weekend.
