2. Snow shoe at least twice a week
3. 30 minutes strength train at least twice a week
4. Get at least 10,000 steps a day

Winter 5% Nutrition Plan:
I am committed to tracking my food intake using the Spark Nutrition Tracker. (This is difficult for me!)
I just started using the Mix and Match meal planner in order to have variety in my meals.
I am going to reduce my carbohydrate and sodium intake and increase my protein.
In addition, I will get in at least 5 freggies a day.
I will measure my foods and drink at least 10 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. Logan just started his first professional job in Houston for an oil and gas engineering firm, and Chase will start dental school in San Antonio in July.
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. I spend my summers in Angel Fire, New Mexico and LOVE to HIKE!

Over the past 2 years, I have gained weight because I retired and didn't put my fitness goals first. I like to eat out and write reviews for Trip Advisor.

Mini-challenge for you: "TIDY UP"

Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day .... to straighten up something, whether it be your desk, a cluttered table, junk drawer, or the kitchen counter. Return items to their rightful places, recycle, and put papers you need to go through in a folder for later.

A chaotic or disorganized space makes everyday tasks seem harder because you feel like you're always running behind. Cleaning up even one small physical space can help clear mental space, allowing you to be more efficient the rest of the day.

Your mini-challenge ... There are 3 Important Things to Remember this week:

Every good thing you do for yourself is a step toward good health ... whether it is moving more, getting more sleep, or eating clean.

Don't get caught up in the "all-or-noting" mentality trap. Ten minutes here & there really DOES add up, and IS better than nothing.

Set reasonable, small goals. And then when you have achieved them, set another small goal .... and continue on your health journey.

GO CHAMPIONS!!!

Terri, it will probably feel good to be home for a while. It's great you get to travel so much, though. WE just don't. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like. You WILL get back into the groove, I'm sure of it! No worries .... see you in the Kitchen! emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week:

"Go Faster, Go Longer, Go Harder, or Do More.” In other words, speed up your workout, workout longer, push yourself harder, go further, or do more reps. Whether you are walking, biking, swimming,or strength training . . . whatever exercise you choose to do this week, do it with more intensity.

Push yourself just a little more ... to see just a little more result. A little goes a long way! emoticon emoticon
