Whittle Away for Water: Week 1 Check-In

Whittle Away for Water - a new weight loss challenge by @shrinkingjeans benefiting @charitywater and YOU! 50% of the pot will be donated to BB's Clean Water for Christmas campaign {http://mycharitywater.org/cleanwaterforchristmas4} and the remaining pot will be split among challengers who lose 4% or more of body weight! #weightloss #fitness #charity #kidsdoinggoodWe’ve finished our first week in the Whittle Away for Water Weight Loss Challenge! How are you doing? Are you making positive changes in your life? What’s working for you and what isn’t? We are nipping that holiday gain in the bud. You will be starting the new year off with a head start on everyone else and their resolutions!

You know the drill… drop ’em and hit the scale. Remember that number, as it will be GONE next week!

Not only will this weight loss challenge benefit your waistline, it will also benefit communities across the world who are in desperate need of clean water – through a little 10-year-old boy’s Clean Water for Christmas charity: water campaign. I have a special love for this boy, not only because he is extremely smart and cute {and mine!}, but because this is his fourth year giving up gifts to raise money for water sources for these people. All in all, he has raised over $13,000! Holy wow! This year, his goal is $10,000, so we are doing our best to help his cause.

He's only 10, but this year he's raising $10,000 for @charitywater ! Clean Water for Christmas: http://mycharitywater.org/cleanwaterforchristmas4  #kidsdoinggood #charity #cleanwaterforchristmasView Bridger’s Clean Water for Christmas Campaign!

This Week’s Challenge

This week, I want you to focus on getting at least 20-30 minutes of exercise each day. Whether that be going to the gym, or a quick walk on your lunch break, get it done, m’kay? It’s so easy to get wrapped up in our busy lives and completely forget about fitting in exercise, but it’s so important and essential for weight loss, too!

    I am glad that the weigh in isn’t this week! Walking 60 miles should burn a lot of calories but apparently they feed you really well during those 60 miles because I gained a few pounds this week!! :-( But, it will come off again quickly now that I am getting back into a routine!

    I want to see a couple pound loss before Thanksgiving to keep me motivated. Getting in 20 to 30 minutes of exercise every day, no excuses, is going to make it happen for me.

  • Idanies R.

    I will definetely start doing an extra 20-30 minutes of exercise this week. Thanks for your help!!!! I want to lose at least two pounds by the end of the challenge :-)
