    Hello everyone :D

    I have decided to set up a July Challenge :p

    For the challenge I'm proposing 3 small things for the month of July -


    1. Drink 3.5 litres a day
    2. 1 CD bar per week
    3. Exercise each day between 30-60 minutes
    As most of you probably know, when I drink more water I tend to loose more. I have challenged myself to 1 CD bar pw, I'm curious if my overall weight loss in that month will differ much without so many bars. I also want to tone up a little, so exercise was the obvious choice to include.

    I thought perhaps others may be interested to give these 3 small steps a try over the July month and compare with previous month losses.

    Unlike normal 'challenges' I thought rather than adding a weight now that we want to loose - each week we are weighed we can add the results next to our name, so we can see everybody's overall loss as the weeks go by.

    At the end of July I will post the overall loss of all the July challengers! :D:D:D

    So here goes...

    Hey Emma,
    Good idea hon, I would like to join..
    I would like to do some exercise daily as at the moment apart from a bit of walking I dont do any other.....

    So for me 30-60 mins exercise - 3 to 4 times a week.
    Drink 4 litres daily -
    3 to 4 bars a week

    Thanks hon xxxx

    no blips - from July 1st to 31st without any breaks, 100% SS.
    get into 12's
    excercise - walk 30 minutes per day

    dont really want to cut out the bars as they don't really slow my weight loss and i already drink 4.5 - 5 litres a day... :confused:

    Oooh, well seeing as it's my birthday in July then I think this is a must for me. I'm gonna need some strong rules as my Mum and her new husband are coming over from Sweden for two weeks!! There's also lots of end of term parties, so I'm going to need to stay strong.

    For that reason I will:
    Drink at least 5 pints of water daily (aiming for 6pints/3 litres)
    Stick to SS 100%
    Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day- moving to 30.

    I know its baby steps, but I'm building!!
    I'm 30 on the 14th, reckon thats gonna be one tough day! Oh well, I could go all out and treat myself to.......all my favourite shakes...with a bit of tetra jelly and ice-cream (with a candle of course)
