Summer 5% Challenge

Activity plan:
Get in cardio 3 days per week.
Do strength training 2 days per week.
Try a new exercise video on Youtube weekly
Get in 10,000 steps daily

Fall 5% Nutrition Plan:
I am committed to tracking my food intake using the Spark Nutrition Tracker. (This is difficult for me!)
I am going to reduce my carbohydrate and sodium intake and increase my protein.
In addition, I will get in at least 3 freggies a day.
I will measure my foods and drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
On my team page I will daily record my exercise and Living the Good Life points, and I will weigh and record my weight weekly. I will check with my team at least three times per week. I will visit team members' pages and blogs as much as I can.

I am looking forward to being physically, mentally and spiritually stronger. Sparkpeople has the tools to help me succeed. Now, it is up to me to put the knowledge to use.
Both of my twins have graduated college.
I am a retired school teacher and look forward to marking a few things off my bucket list.
I enjoy cooking and like to make soup. I eat soup just about everyday for lunch.
I like all types of fresh food and don't follow a special diet. I eat whatever I want. I am logging my food and exercising and believe that moderation is the key to success.
I grew up in the country, and love all things outdoors. I have lots of time to travel, and especially love the outdoors.

    Howdy Terri,

    Part of our LTGL (Long Term Goal) this week is to spread the Champion Spark with our Kitchen buddies by dropping an Apple on their Spark Page... Here's mine to you!
    Being a teacher (and a dang good one I hear) I'm certain this isn't your first apple.
    Enjoy the Fall Challenge and thanks again for joining! Cheers to you, Brad

    Wishing you brighter days ahead!
