NOW blog for Monday

Monday, May 30, 2011

I really need to work on sticking with a plan once I make it.

Sometimes I think I don't have the time...



but if I really want results...



I will find the time.

I also need to put good wholesome food in my body everday...



The obstacles will always be there...



but I am strong...



so don't mess with my success...

NOW blog for Friday

Friday, May 27, 2011

This weekend for our BLC challenge we are supposed to work to overturn a bad habit. One habit of mine that I really need to break is that I can have a really good week, but very rarely do I manage to string that great week onto another. I need to find a way to make the most of all my weeks. Even when my weight loss goal is reached, the journey is not over. In order to be the healthiest I can be I will always need to make good food choices and fit in fitness.

My plan to help me overturn this habit:

1. I am going to sit down with my calendar each week and schedule in fitness and plan healthy meals.

2. Each morning I am going to look at my plan for the day and see if it is going to work. If I see a problem for the day, I will come up with a plan to compensate.

3. Each evening, I will assess how successful the day was.

I may even find that this approach benefits other areas of my life as well.

    Great plan, Dulci! When I remember to sit down and make out a meal plan and grocery list for the week, the whole family eats better, stress levels are reduced, plus I save $$ because I use coupons when I plan ahead!

My Top 10 Musts for a Healthy Me!

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Here is a top 10 lists of things I must do to be successful in my journey to weight loss and good health.

1. Track, track, track. I am always more successful when I am honest with myself about what is going in my mouth.

2. Make fitness a priority. My life will never not be busy, so fitness needs to be worked into my day.

3. At least 8 glasses of water. Your body needs this to function at peak efficiency.

4. At least 7 hours of sleep each night. Less than this makes me grouchy and suppresses my self-control.

5. Always have a Plan B! Even the best planned out day can have a curveball thrown at it.

6. Surround myself with positive, supportive people.

7. Tap into the enthusiasm of others when I can't seem to find my own.

8. Find a way to deal with my inner brat, that says things like - "I'm too tired to exercise" or " I deserve a treat.".

9. Find a little me time each day. Note to self: Me time does not include diving into a bag of chips!

10. BE PROUD OF YOURSELF! No matter what, you are a strong and beautiful woman!

Challenge 2 - EGGSpedition

Friday, April 22, 2011

This weekend we'll be taking part in an "EGGSpedition" to see how many eggs we can pick up! Of course you're going to have to earn the eggs and the all important basket that you'll be lugging around! That's going to take some strength...the fuller it becomes the heavier it gets!

Challenge Runs FRIDAY - TUESDAY
Challenge accomplishment need to be posted to the tracking thread NO later than Midnight (your time zone) WEDNESDAY!
Tracking Example: Eggspedition: total # of baskets, total # of eggs!

Complete 30 minutes of planned cardio daily to earn your basket!

Complete 1 set of 15 reps ST to earn an egg! There is no limit to the number of eggs you can earn daily, so mix up the ST and sprinkle in some extra sets of 15 through the day!

Always remember to alternate ST and work different muscle groups daily to allow recovery time...upper today, lower tomorrow! It's suggested to make Tuesday a Core day to avoid strenuous strength training the day before weigh in!

Let's see if we, as a team, can gather all 1000 eggs before challenge end!

Friday: 1 basket, 16 eggs
Saturday:
Sunday:
Monday:
Tuesday:
