We are now in the 3rd week of the FALL 5% Challenge! I am on the SPIRITED UNDER DOG Team (I am thankful they ALLOW me to be the ML, Motivational Leader). In the past 2 weeks, I've BROKEN my PLATEAU!! I KNOW What to do, but was out flirting during the break with Mr Whoopie Pie, Mr I am at the Fair and eating a FRIED SNICKERS(OH YUMMY! But, yeah I do NOT want to hang around him) and of course Mr Chips!! Oh they can RUSH you to the ER with Mr High Choloestrol!! So let's be CAREFUL on who we go out with!

I've said GOODBYE to 2 lbs and to make my 5% (in 8 weeks we aim to lose 5% of our weight) which is 9lbs. I am GOING FOR IT! WOOHOOOO!!

Each challenge is a NEW Chance to DO MY BEST to HIT my 5% Goal loss!!.

I have not done as well as the previous year. TOTALLY my own doing. I KNOW What to do, now to just do it. As we can see I AM.

My Goals:
To hit my 5% Goal of about 9Lbs.

To make SURE I get my REST. If it's a hard night, to get UP and do a sleep yoga video posted on YOUTUBE. THere are MANY of these including for people who can't-do yoga at ALL.

My Program:

1) Drink 6 glasses of water (at 8 I generally GAIN)
2) Exercise SMARTLY! I keep breaking or injuring my foot which stops me cold. So now 10 to 20 mins at a time ONLY. If it feels at ALL Stressed,, slow WAY Down.
3) Stay in the 1200 to 1350 calorie range. NOT doing any "latest" things I've watched too many have MUCH success doing these, but then they go back to their regular eating after a time (sometimes a long time) and POOF! BACK comes the weight. NOT doing this.
4) Having DIANE APPRECIATION time by doing hobbies I enjoy. Working on a painting of the Fall. Very pleased with it thus far. I've had to LEARN if it's not "perfect" it doesn't matter. Rather my style does NOT have to be. It's way more about the fun than anything else.

Personal Information:
LOOKING Forward to HOPEFULLY during the next 8 weeks to get into a class at the local Animal Shelter to do KITTEN YOGA!! WOOHOOO!!!

Other Information:
I DO NOT like the words "YOU CAN'T"!!! Where there's a WILL there's a WAY." It may NOT be the traditional way, but if we look for it, it'll be there. No matter where are on our journey we are HERE thus already an improvement.
