Courtney's Summer Challenge: Week 1

Kick-off your summer with Courtney and some necessary "me" time.

Welcome to the kick-off week of Courtney's Summer Challenge! Your challenge this week: "Take some time for yourself and just move."

Courtney wants to see you take a walk each day this week, and she reminds that a week has seven days in it! She doesn't care how long or how far, just that you do it. She also reminds that this "me" time is so important, and that you can't take care of others unless you're taking care of yourself first.

Week 1 Prize: DIR T-Shirt and Free Wholly Guacamole (Winner: ALYSSA)

Participate in the challenge by posting below. It could be your progress, success, hurdles, or even encouragement for other participants. We'll draw one winner to receive a shirt and some tasty guac, announced week 2.

How can I lose the last 10 pounds?? On a plateau... Love what you're doing Courtney! I have a question... I'm about 10 pounds from my goal weight and I'm hanging out on a plateau. I eat basically the same things every week and splurge some on the weekends. I've heard, if you bump up your calories every once in awhile and bring back down, it jump starts your metabolism. Any advice as far as eating or exercising and how to lose those last 10 pounds? Also, to keep those pounds off, will I have to maintain that level of eating or exercising?

Tomatoes in my 1 organic egg this morning along with a small fruit smoothy (1/2 banana, 1/4 blueberries, 1/4 strawberries, tablespoon peanut butter and almond milk)

Lunch I made a peanut sauce noodle with fresh carrot, onion and cucumber.

Walked 2.85 miles

I'm getting there.

I really like the Wholly Guacamole in my diet. It is healthy fat, and tastes great! :)

Can't wait to start this summer challenge! Need something to help get me motivated and Courtney is a big inspiration to me!

Thanks for the motivation! I have been walking with my daughter every day this week and then taking a walk by myself after she goes to sleep!!

I want to thank you Courtney for reminding me that walking is a great way to clear my mind and exercise at the same time!

Excited to be joining in on this summer challenge. A month and a half ago I restarted on my journey to shed nearly 225 lbs. I am happy to say that since May 5th I am down another 33lbs. However I wanted to share a hurdle. The last two weeks I have been like a mad woman. I got a taste of the bad stuff and it is all I have wanted. I have purposely stayed home this weekend and am working around the house so as not to get involved in the SOCIAL activities that have been taking me to these places where I let temptation rule.

Hi Courtney! I was so inspired by you on Biggest Loser Season 11. I just came across this summer challenge today on Facebook and decided to come check it out. I admire that you take the time to help not only yourself out but help your fans out as well.
I plan on starting my day #1 tomorrow, but I look forward to reporting back throughout the week.

Hi Courtney!! I follow you on twitter and decided to give this a go. I started losing weight watching you on the biggest loser-down 20lbs so far. I would love to ultimately lose around 80 lbs total. I am inspired by you and I just moved and found myself in a strange new city. Today I got up the nerve to hit the gym for an hour and it felt great to get back into the swing of things!! Thanks for being so inspiring and I look forward to working through these 12 weeks with you!!

Well, I did it Courtney! :) I'm happy to say I managed to squeeze in a walk each and every day this week! :D HUGE progress considering I struggle with getting activity in my daily life.

My husband gave me some time to go walking today and I found the PERFECT roller blaring path. I am super excited. ;)

So happy to see this. I go on the treadmill every day, first thing. There are days when I REALLY don't want to, though. I'm hopeful this challenge will help keep me motivated.

I'm in. I look forward to seeing the new challenges each week. Thank you for being a cheerleader for us.

This is my week to start a whole new me. I gained a lot since I had my little man- hes the best thing that has happened to me and spending so much time with him has made me a little too "squishy". SO I am hitting hard and going the distance- Zumba and Turbo Kick all week long! Its been 4 days and I'm doing pretty well!

Hi Courtney! I'm so excited that you are doing this summer chalenge. I really want to lose weight but I'm having trouble sticking with it. Too much negativity in my head. Hopefully this will give me a chance to be active in my weight loss journey. I recently hurt my foot so I can't really do high intensity workouts, but yesterday I walked to the mall from my house (2 miles!!!) Can't wait to keep doing your challenge.

I have had many false starts, especially this year. I was very nearly in excellent shape many times, but something always came up (pregnancy, job changes, moves,) but I really, really need to make this commitment and make my healthy and fit life happen now!
