Summer Slimdown Schedule and Challenge!

 Ooook! So, the plan is finally formulated. FIrst off, my goal is to be at 120 by the time I get to Italy. I am giving myself 2 months to get there. So, I must be at or below 120 by June 10. The reason I'm giving my self 2 months (61 days)  instead of 68 days ( Oh my goodness my trip is so close!) is because, I want to be able to maintain that weight for about a week before I leave. Also, I used this calculator thing online http://www.healthyweightforum.org/eng/calculators/calories-required/ which is really awesome. You put in your weight and height and age and activity level. Then, you put in how much you want to lose how fast, and it gives you your calories you need to eat to get there. Here is what my calorie plan looks like:   WEEK 1= 1244 WEEK2= 1233 WEEK3= 1222 WEEK4 = 1211 WEEK5= 1200 WEEK 6 = 1189 WEEK 7 = 1178 WEEK 8= 1167. Here's a little secret though. Last night we had a going away party for my bf's friend, so I kinda went all binge crazy. My weight was 130.8 yesterday morning, but now I fear the worst, so I put my weight in at 135. Even if this is a little high its ok because the calorie values are pretty similar, and maybe I'll lose even more weight than what they are projecting. I'm going to try to stick to these calorie amounts even though they are like double what I would really want to eat in day. Hopefully these amounts will help me to avoid binges and avoid suspicion of other people. Also, they will help me to keep up my strength at gymnastics practice and keep me from getting so dizzy. Now for exercise plan. On top of my gymnastics practice, I am going to start over on the 100 pushup challenge and the 200 hundred situp challenge and I am actually going to finish this time! Also, I am going to do 10 pullups every other day, stretch 2x each day, cardio for at least 20 min per day.  The amount of pullups will go up as I get stronger. I am also going to work on leg lifts hanging from a pullup bar. I'm really bad at these so I'll start at 5 per day and work my way up. Also I'm going to have an exercise of the day! It's will be different each day, but there will be one for my butt each day and one for my inner thighs. I'll post these in a separate post each day. Does anybody want to do this two month challenge with me? Just go to that link I posted earlier and figure out how much you need to eat in order to lose. Then, each Wednesday, post your weight. Take a pic of your starting point on Wednesday April 11,2012. Then another on May 10, 2012 to show the half way point. Finally, another picture on June 10 to show how far you've come.  Also, I will offer a prize for whoever wins the challenge! First place will be determined by whoever loses the most weight by  June 10, 2012. If there is a tie, it will be by percentage lost. If there is still a tie, then i will let the readers vote!! Who is in?
