So, I lost 12 lbs this season! But then I gained 3 back. Still, 9 lbs is pretty good.
I may not qualify to win any of the prizes, but I'm still pretty happy with the results.

Quick review of last week challenges:
I did not do Jillian, and I did not give it all I had. I was focused on finishing school and working.
I did fine on the no sugar diet. Easy as pie. Sugar free non mushy pie.
I did not do as well as I would have hoped. I was very consumed with work (bought by a new company) and school (full time) I found it hard to have the drive to exercise once I completed all of my tasks. The nutritional challenges we not hard to do, just making time for the physical ones.
I did not loose any weight. I did not lose any inches either.
I think I did pretty well with my lack o carbs diet. I even got Jimmy to not detest brown rice! I also tried new grains and even made banana bread for others will all whole wheat flower!
I completed 14 Challenges. It could be worse, but could be better.
I am so proud of you girls! You rock it and I am proud to have you as my sisters!! :)

Before I get to my final results, I want to play a little catch up. I was out of town last week, and that meant I had no internet, cellphone reception or even electricity. So if you guys don't mind, i'd like to post about how I did on the last few challenges!
- I worked out with Dave (we went walking!) for the physical challenge
- For the Emotional Challenge I made a list things I would like to change. I also found that I have more confidence (it keeps growing!) and have been dealing with stress much better.
- Nutritionally I was able to do the 4 meals without any simple carbs (it was tough, I didn't have my normal food around because we were out of town!)
- The other Physical Challenge was to give it your all, I couldn't do the ripped in 30 (no electricity) last week but I did do a lot of physical activity and I did give it my all!

This week when you post about how you did with last weeks challenges also tell us how you did this season.
Include the following information:
Did you lose any weight or inches?
Did you meet your goals?
What (if anything) did you learn?
How do you feel?
How did you do with your diet?
How many points did you win with weekly challenges?
We are going to wait to vote for who we think deserves to win this season after everyone has posted their results. That means you have to write your post by Saturday 8/20.
Then next week we will vote on the winner.
This season has been a lot of fun!
I've enjoyed writing the challenges, and I hope you guys had a fun time doing them :-)

Each week we are given two challenges. These challenges will start on Sunday and go through the following Saturday.
On our designated blogging days we'll let each other know how we did with the previous weeks challenges!
BE HONEST. If you failed the challenge, tell us why. If you rocked it, tell us how. Most importantly, tell us how you feel about it.
So lucky us, we get a physical, nutritional, and an emotional!
I'll give instructions for next week on Sunday.
Emotional: We make fun of it, and we don't really listen, but this week when you do level 4 of Ripped in 30 on your own, really LISTEN to what Jillian says at the end. Sure, it's corny, and maybe you'll roll your eyes. But she gives some pretty good advice, and I think it would be beneficial for you to lay there, close your eyes, listen and internalize before you stretch.
AND remember our continual challenge this season is to do the Ripped in 30 DVD twice each week.
