posting this blog in preparation for getting back on track. I need to recommitment myself to getting fit and eating healthier. I have revised my goals...as exercise was inconsistent to nonexistent lately.
~~ Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment ~~ Begins June 21st
Waist to Hip Ratio: 0.87
Strength Training ~ Using either dvds, Wii Fit Plus, or workouts from magazines/books ~ Mon/Wed/Fri
Cardio ~ Walking/Dvds/Wii Fit Plus/Walk It Out for the Wii ~ 30 mins ~ 5 days per week
Beginning Goal: 15-20 minutes of exercise to start then add more til I get to 30 minutes per day 3x per week
Ultimate Goal: 45 minutes of exercise 5x a week
Drink Water - 6-8 glasses per day
Fruits/Veggies - 2-5 servings per day
Cut down on the amount of times I eat fast food, candy, ice cream, salty snacks, and dips. Have been doing this on an almost daily basis and that has caused me to regain all the weight I had lost and maintained for several years, plus some added pounds beyond that.
Will add my thoughts, progress or non-progress to this blog as I go along to hold myself accountable during this challenge. I will also be using a notebook on a daily basis to track my food choices and exercises.
I need to because
To help me with staying on track….

Week 1 review: Did not do well. Ate fast food, candy, chips with dip, and several root beer floats. Portion sizes were not under control. Stress level has been high this past week at work and home.
Week 2 review: Stayed the same weight. But have not eaten at McDonald's or had a sweet tea all week. Have started packing lunches to take to work. Need to work on portion sizes when it comes to rice and pasta dishes. I did do 195 mins of exercise this week so moving in the right direction with that.
