Body After Baby: Week Two

Happy week two! I know I said I was going to announce the winner of last weeks giveaway on Thursday- I’m really sorry about that. I was completely stressed and dealing with a sick baby and I forgot about it. Please forgive me!

The winner of last weeks giveaway of the Diet and Exercise Diary is #2- Amanda! Congrats Amanda! Email me and I’ll get your book to you!

I want to clarify that anyone is welcome to participate in the general Body After Baby Challenge, blog about it, link up here and visit others, but please know that only people who signed up for this specific eight week challenge are eligible for the weeks giveaway and the grand prize of a $50 gift certificate to Mama Momo and another $25 gift certificate to store of choice. People who are participating in that eight week challenge (hopefully!) took before pictures and are submitting them to me with their after pictures in 8 (now 7) weeks. I will be verifying this at the end of these 8 weeks with the comments you left on the sign up post. Everyone is welcome to tag along and keep track of points for fun and motivation though! Feel free to continue to blog about this challenge!

I hope that makes sense. Thanks for understanding!

So…. week two! How did you all do with last weeks mini challenge of drinking water? I hope you noticed a difference… besides just having to use the restroom more often!

I know you’re not submitting your points to the end, but I’d love to hear how many points you got this week from drinking water! Did you get the maximum of eight points a day? Let me know! The mini challenge of drinking water ends now. Continue to drink as much as you can though, the benefits are endless!

This weeks mini challenge:


How many minutes can you walk?
Every 15 minutes you walk = 1 point.
If you’re a runner and normally run instead of walking, that’s fine. 15 minutes of running = 1 point.
Maximum points that can be earned for each day is 4 points which is equal to one hour of walking or running.
Please be realistic. Walking around your house or walking to and from you car to the grocery store doesn’t count. However, if you park 10 minutes away and walk to the front doors, that does count! Walk on the treadmill, walk outside with your kids, push the stroller, walk during your lunch break at work, or walk to your errands.
This weeks giveaway:

I really really wish I could give away a new pair of running shoes.
This weeks giveaway is a $5 gift certificate to Target. Linky will close Thursday morning and winner will be randomly selected and announced next week.
Have a great week! If you wrote about the challenge this week, leave your link below. Please make sure you know the Linky rules or I will delete your link, (I’m not mean, promise!) and try to visit the two people before you!

Have a great week!

  1. Fun challenge! I've been walking and I had just starting running on my treadmill this weekend. Maxed out my points on water everyday. So far 3 pounds down. =) Off to a great start!

  2. I got an error with Mr. Linky the first time, so I hope it didn't enter me twice (if it did, can you delete it?).

    I think I am doing so-so on the Challenge so far, but to me… that's better than nothing!

  3. I forgot to keep track of my points when drinking water…I drink 5-6 glasses a day but never thought to write anything down 😦 Should I guesstimate or just write it off as a loss?

    Walking will be easier! I can keep track of that because it's something I do purposefully (and have been for a little while, though I think I'll take it up a notch for the challenge this week), versus the water that is just something I do all day, every day any way.
