    Great commitment! Good luck with the 5% challenge! I did the 5% challenge for almost a year, but I'm not doing this round because I have too many other things going. It is a great challenge though.

I can do this if I actually TRY

Monday, February 24, 2014

Okay I will admit it: I am a slacker! As a result of that laziness, I am gaining weight. I have decided to take my health into my own hands (no one else will do it for me!) I have done 3 things:

# 1 - I have written down Spark People's Intermediate Walking Plan. I am going to follow this plan for the next 12 weeks. I will try to get at least 10,000 steps a day.

# 2 I have joined the "Balance Rewards with Steps" program from Walgreens. They reward you with Balance reward points you can spend in the store for each healthy action you take and report. 40,000 points = $50 to spend in the store. That is my ultimate goal in the next 12 weeks. I hope to lose at least 10-12 pounds in that time as well.

# 3 - I found Spark People's Planner and wrote down each day I want to exercise and for how long for the next 12 weeks. I have made a plan and I'm going to stick with it this time.

I'm going to try and keep track of my steps, minutes and weight here each day and once a week. Anybody who would like to join me is welcome.

I know you can do this! I get lazy also, but I read something the other day that another Sparkie had posted...I put this on my phone, it says "If you give up today, think of how much you'll regret it 3 months from now when you could be 15-20 pounds lighter."

It gave me a swift kick in the Pa-tootie also.

I believe in you.

    emoticon I LOVE walking but like you said at the beginning of your Blog~~

I GET LAZY!! REAL LAZY in winter.....and there is really no need because here where I live....
Sidewalks are well maintained in winter
I own a treadmill which seems to need a LOT of dusting
Our community here has an indoor walking place~~

So it is just pure in and out laziness that keeps me from walking!

I'm a STREAKER! - Week Two

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

I did pretty well with Week One, even though I gained .8 pounds due to poor eating choices. I can't wait to start Week Two tomorrow and lose at least a pound!

Accountability tracker (Week Two)

Jan 22 - No workout today. Spending time with my honey!

Jan 23 - No workout today. I plan to workout the next five days at least 20 min or I will fall off the streak already!

UPDATE: So I fell off the Biggest Loser Streak already. I'm starting my own personal streak. AND I lost .6 pounds this week!

Recommitting to a healthy lifestyle

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Even though I started the BLC and had all the motivation in the world, I have really let my goals fall by the wayside. So, I'm recommitting myself to be as healthy as I can be.

PLAN:

I'm going to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

I'm going to exercise 20 minutes a day.

I'm going to plan my meals every Sunday.

I'm going to incorporate more freggies into my diet and try to get at least 5 a day.

I'm going to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night.

I'm going to take my medication every day.

I'm going to take care of myself.

I've noticed that I felt a lot better when I was exercising regularly, eating healthier and taking my medication every day on schedule. So, I need to get back to that place so I can feel good again. I can do this. I just need to remind myself that I deserve to be and feel the best I can make myself!

    I understand about the medications. I now take my meds in the morning and at bedtime. I have a routine in the morning to ensure I take my meds. The night time meds get missed sometimes because I don't have a routine for them. Having plans is a good start. Good Luck to us all!
