I'm taking on a new challenge on the Spooky to Hottie team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_
individual.asp?gid=10729 and I'm really excited about this one. Why? Because I feel this is a great stepping stone for those just starting, those who are starting over and those who are still going but need a little something to keep them on track. This means that all my friends can join without the need of rearranging their current plan. The plan comes from Dr. Oz and is called "Just Ten Lbs". It gives a list of task/goals to help you lose 10lbs. This is no diet with recipes or exercise plan. In fact the closes it gets to that is by telling you to move for 10 mins a day and "reinvent" your recipes. In short, no need for a gym membership or tread mill and no need for special smoothies and a new shopping list. Just move and sub your meat pizza for a veggie topped pizza type of deal.
I can so do that!
So I know that the idea is to take these all on at once but I don't want to be over whelmed so I'm planning on taking them on a little at a time. The goal is about 1-2 a day every day or other day depending on if I feel I have the control of the others and the ability to accept another challenge.
Below are the 12 Task suggested:
Task #1- Cut out soda
Task #2- Stop eating at least 3 hours before bed
Task #3- Move for 10 Minutes Each day
Task #4- Exercise portion Control
Task #5- Weigh yourself every day
Task #6- Take a Vitamin B Complex Every Day
Task #7- Take your vitamins (cal 1200 (600 from food) Mag 400 V D3 1000 with DHA, DHA 900, Probiotics in spore form and multi vitamin)
Task #8- Recipe Reinvention
Task #9- Know your serving sizes
Task #10- Conquer your cravings
Task #11- Survive the holidays
Task #12- Keep the weight off
Just so that you know this, task 11 and 12 come with helpful hints that I will blog about when I get to them. For now I'm planning out details on how I want to go about this challenge starting with grouping task into "bite size" portions I can handle. I'll list these as "days" though it may be not the next day that I start that next grouping.
Day 1- Task #1- Cut out soda and Task #5- Weigh yourself every day
Day 2- Task #2- Stop eating at least 3 hours before bed and Task #9- Know your serving sizes
Day 3- Task #10- Conquer your cravings and Task #4- Exercise portion Control
Day 4-Task #6- Take a Vitamin B Complex Every Day and Task #7- Take your vitamins (cal 1200 (600 from food) Mag 400 V D3 1000 with DHA, DHA 900, Probiotics in spore form and multi vitamin).
Day 5-Task #3- Move for 10 Minutes Each day and Task #8- Recipe Reinvention
Day 6- Task #11- Survive the holidays and Task #12- Keep the weight off
I think that all these task work hand and hand and go in an order for easiest to hardest for me. I feel if I put in the harder stuff and fail then I will give up sooner. Maybe with the easier stuff first and seeing success will help me stick with the harder stuff at the end.
Either way, the plan is set!
