"... the original source of beauty fashioned them." Wisdom 13:3
There are two ways of spreading light…To be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it. – E. Wharton
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases - John Keats
. . . to enjoy the beauty in my life!
. . . to savor the delicious, nutritious foods that I eat to live!
. . . to choose the good in every moment of my day!
. . . to have the humility to ask the Lord for His help!
. . . to be grateful to God for all of His gifts - including ME!
. . . to remember that I am free to make the right choices about food, etc., NOW, no matter what I chose yesterday or 10 minutes ago!
My new & improved goals are:
1. To love my life!
2. To be fit and healthy so that I can live life to the full.
3. To lose 5% of my weight in 8 weeks and meet my seasonal 5% Challenge Goal!
My 2016 Summer 5% Challenge commitments:
a. Control Portion size and no seconds!
b. No Snacking - that is the best method I have found to stay on track. If I have the discipline not to eat between meals, I am more capable of eating well at meal time.
2. Exercise - at least 350 minutes per week:
a. At least 30 minutes of cardio exercise every day.
b. Strength training at least 3 days per week.
3. Team participation
a. I will post my exercise and LTGL points daily
b. Post to the team wall and/or chat thread daily.
c. Visit team members pages and blogs to leave support, encouragement and goodies.

Good Morning, Kiwi!
Just swinging by and letting you know we are having some fun in London today with the Shooting Stars. Come join us there before we go off to another direction tomorrow. How are things going for you in the Challenge? I am not as successful as I wanted to be. It proves to be really tricky having my parents here for 10 weeks. I only see them every second year for the summer, and they are really good cooks, so it has been a struggle to stay focused. But I already signed up as ML for the Fall Challenge, so I am in it for the long run. Have a fantastic day!

Not all teams go to win the challenges, but concentrate on other things. We try to hit all aspects,,, perhaps that's not possible??? Not sure,,, I feel we do a pretty good job.
