Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment.

~Green Smoothies
~Limit sugar intake, 5g or less
~Read labels
~Exercise Plan  mini walks @ 10 min 3x/day
~Strength Training & love hate relationship. 1-2x/week

AFFIRMATION: "I have the will, the determination and the strength to complete my weight loss goals. I can push myself to the maximum by taking it a little bit at a time and asking God for help."

"Let's be realistic here. You won't drop two jean sizes in one day. You won't lose fifty pounds in one month. You're going to binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there. You're going to try new techniques, and they're not going to work. You're a human being. You're going to fail. But nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles. JUST KEEP GOING." ~unknown

My 2016 Overall Goal is to release 15 lbs.
Ongoing commitment:

*Never Miss a Monday
*Never Go 3 Days W/Out Exercise
*Workout at Least 3 Days A Week
*Never Give Up!

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
~Maria Robinson

My healthy motivation is regularly reminding myself that healthy feels good and losing weight is like dating and marriage. All those things you did while dating don't stop once you get married (or reach goal). You have to keep that fire lit and sparks flying! ~Sookie

No matter what life throws my way,

~ I will remain focused
~ I will take time out for me
~ I will NOT give in to negative thoughts
~ I will return to the present moment
~ I will Trust God that everything will be okay

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

"The Lord will fight for you: you only need to be still." Exodus 14:14 (NIV)

Don't give up on God and He won't give up on you � He's Able!

    "Food for Thought" this week:

    The way you think about food is directly linked to how much food you eat. If you concentrate on enjoying the flavors of the food you eat, you’ll begin to eat only when you’re truly hungry & you'll begin to stop when you feel satisfied. This “mindful eating” technique results in fewer total calories consumed because you’re paying particular attention to what you are actually eating. Be a "Mindful Eater" this week!
