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.

I already got my "walk" in (Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds 3 mile workout). I'll be heading out later for a walk or going to the gym later too! Working on at least 25 pounds in the next 8 weeks before we go to Hawaii for the first time! It's our first real family vacation, so I'm really wanting to lose that weight so I can fully enjoy myself! So bring on the challenge! I'm in!

I would love to join this challange Courtney! You have been an inspiration to me already and I love guacamole too! I have already started and lost 27lbs since April 1st, 2011! You inspired me with what you said on Biggest Loser before you left and now I am doing it! I took my dog 'Fancy' for a walk today! Even my dog's lost weight since I started walking her more!!!:D This will be great to keep us on track too! Thanks!

Hi Courtney! I'm glad to join you in your week 1 challenge. I went for a walk yesterday so I might as well do it for the rest of the week, too! Glad to see you on here and be friends with you on Twitter as I continue my weight loss with you.

I just got back from my 3-mile walk over lunch break! There is NOTHING like some fresh air and walking during the middle of the work day! It really puts you in a better mood and makes you feel great! And it only takes 45-60 minutes a day! I've been rounding up a group of co-workers to come walk with me, but I don't make excuses when they can't either!

This is a great idea. I'm in. In fact I've already taken an hour long walk today. I got in over 8000 steps during that walk. It's a bit too hot outside so I walked in laps around the 6th floor of my office building. No excuses! Thanks for initiating the challenge.

Courtney, I am so in on this. I am truely hoping this helps me get started. I am a mother of 4 at age 26 almost 300lbs, I have no vehicle to get anywhere no money to join gyms so I am at a stand still! So I am not following you on this and hoping it will help me! Thank You so much! Keep up the great work!

I am literally in tears! This challange is EXACTLY what I need! As James Garrison said last night no more excuses! I have been under a tremendous amount of stress for about 3 years now and it is slowly killing me because I am laying down and taking it. It is time I stood up and faced it head on. Exercise will help me conquer! Thank you Court!

I'm in! So I saw the post, and just went out and did some walking around the campus I work at. WOW first time I've ever done that and I've been here since 2003. Thanks for the inspiration! One step at a time, one day at a time!!!

Count me in! I need the accountability help to stay active! I've been lax for a few weeks. Enough is enough. I'm back in the saddle!
