21-day Streak!

Thursday, October 03, 2013

One of my teammates on the F.I.T. Females In Training team began a 21-day streak of at least 10 minutes of exercise. I joined her today and am inviting you to come along with me. I thrive on challenges and tend to get sluggish and lack-a-daisical when I don't have one. So let's do this!

Are you up for it! 21 days -- no excuses -- at least 10 minutes of some kind of exercise. If you've been doing more, then continue; just be sure to do it EVERY day.

2013 Fall 5% Challenge is open to old and new members!

Sunday, September 22, 2013

All my SP Friends who have at some time thought about joining this challenge to give a boost to your weight loss, here's your chance. This invitation probably won't stay open long because we can only add so many new members.

Lose 5% of your weight (or more or less--you set your goal) while practicing good lifestyle habits, and racing (with your exercise) to "virtually visit" various exotic countries with your team mates. It's a blast, no kidding. But the main goal is to blast some weight off your body!

We have fun, but we are serious about this challenge and do have strict rules to keep us participating. So join me for the Fall Challenge!

If the link won't work, just copy it into your browser.

    I hold our challenges responsible for my success. I had such a good time trying on old bathing suits and getting a new one for our vacation and it's all because of the challenges I've been part of. It is thanks to you, Jonnie, that I got involved in the first time. That is why I consider you my BFF.

I am ready. I feel just like Bobbie. I can't let myself down and I really can't let my team down!

    I LOVE this challenge...as you WELL know my darling one! It's always so good to challenge yourself....not only for US...but to bolster our team. On many days that I would have slacked on the exercise...I thought...oh brother I can't let down the Teddy's..that JUST WILL NOT FLY! emoticon emoticon emoticon It got me on that treadmill...when other times I would have made a perfectly good but NOT logical excuse to slack! emoticon Teddy Bears RULE! emoticon

    Thanks for the info! Wild raspberries grow next to our mtn (dirt) road. They are tiny...and 1/2 hr of picking "amongst" the thorns results in 1/2 C, but they are yummy!

Glad to learn about the blackberries' ability to fight cancer!

    WOW, these are fantastic! I wish they weren't so costly at the store. We had wild blackberries and raspberries in the fields, but that was a long time ago. Great information. I might need to stock up on them when I catch them on sale. emoticon emoticon emoticon I feel better just looking at them. LOL!

OK, so I'll repent my sins tomorrow

Saturday, August 10, 2013

3 slices of pizza, much Chinese food and some wonderful red wine sent me way over my calorie allowance for the day, but Hey! I'm leaving my kids & grand kids tomorrow to head back to Michigan where I promise to resume my healthy eating habits.

Besides I'll be in the air or tromping around airports tomorrow, and I never eat much when I travel--nothing but junk to choose from--so I'll redeem myself soon.

And did I EVER enjoy myself! emoticon

    i once went to subway right before i went to the airport so i had something healthy when to eat when i got there. i also pack some healthy snacks. Part of a healthy lifestyle means that if you overeat 1 day it will not cause you to keep eating too much.

    The road has its fall downs and get ups and just plain old wiggle room. Sounds like the indulgence was worth it and not at all harmful to the Big Picture.

Travel safely!

Goals for the 2013 Summer 5% Challenge

Thursday, July 25, 2013

The Challenge will begin in 2 days, and I am so ready! Even with a couple of personal challenges, I will overcome, persevere and be victorious over these stubborn 9 lbs.

Challenge #1, the small challenge: The first 3 weeks of the challenge I'll be visiting family--eating, eating, eating. In all fairness to my son, however, he went grocery shopping for all the fruits and veggies needed for my plant-based diet. My veggie-fruit smoothies are already a big hit, even with my grand kids.

Challenge #2, the big challenge: I have a partially-torn achilles tendon and will not be able to walk for exercise, although the extra effort it takes to get around with one leg doing most of the work (especially stairs) must be using some extra calories. I'll be limited to calisthenics and weights for my exercise minutes for the entire challenge.

But there will be no whining; I will somehow find a way to make this work and still get those lbs off.

I'm anxious to get started! Let's go, Teddy Bears!
