Walk 2 miles every day (weather permitting)
Commute to/from work on the bicycle, every week day, weather permitting, at least through the end of September, while there's enough daylight in the morning.
Do strength training every day, rotating muscle groups.
Stretch every day at least 10 minutes.
Goal of at least 120 minutes of exercise every day.

Track my food daily and stay within my calories. I aim for 10 or more servings of fruits/vegetables per day, with at least half of those servings being vegetables.

Fall and Winter are difficult seasons for me. I tend to exercise less, because my normal inclination is to exercise outdoors. So as the daylight becomes shorter and the weather colder, I'm forced indoors. It will be a challenge to get as many exercise minutes as I've posted. But I've got a food plan, an exercise plan, and a commitment to my BLACK PANTHER TEAM!

Weigh in weekly
Support my teammates
Create the weekly When Panthers Prowl Dare!
Try new things
Participate in all the challenges, and see it through to the end! (Because commitment means Commitment!)

    Don’t simply exist in this world, but grasp life’s potential by the jacket.
    Dare it to be all it can.

    Make life historical.. a gripping account of accomplishment.
    Make life a mystery.. a challenging, bold adventure.
    Make life heartfelt.. an enduring, poetic romance.

    Whatever it is you make of your world, live the fairy tale.” - Richelle E. Goodrich

    Have a great month!

    Thank you for posting to my page! I was really down. I had a visit from my mom from Texas which was a major pick me up! Was just so disgusted with the medical system (see Courage Under Fire blog) Thanks again,
    Be blessed,

    "The best things in life aren't things."

    There's nothing wrong with having nice things but the nicest are those relationships we build with others, the love we're able to give and get back freely from those who are dear to our heart, the positive impact we make as we continue to inspire and encourage those around us.. and those who inspire and encourage us back.

    Thanks for being a positive impact on the firecracker's team. Have a great week and WTG on your weigh in!
