I missed blogginf yesterday, so I will respond to 2 challenge questions today.
What can you improve upon? Concerning my walking/exercising...
I can improve upon my consistency. It gets rough as the week goes on. Not to make excuses, but working two jobs makes things more challenging. I often think that I should take care of my exercise in the morning and have even attempted to set my alarm 45 minutes earlier. I AM SO NOT A MORNING PERSON!! I end up hitting snooze for 45 minutes.
I need to find a time that works for exercising whether I am working both jobs or not!! Morning could work. I could also utlize my emplyers gym that is right next door to my office, even if it is 15 minutes 2x each day. Perhaps I can try the treadmill today at lunch (I could get 2 miles in ... hmmm)!!
Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!
It always helps to receive motivation!! It is why I log into SP each day!!

5% Winter Challenge
How are you doing day by day?
It is how I approach everything... day by day.
So far, for this challenge, things are going well. Last week, I was shy 2 miles of my 10 mile walking goal. This week, I WILL meet my 10 mile goal. I have to because my goal for weeks 3 & 4 of the challenge is 12 miles/week. Like one of my teammates, I want a GOLD STAR for reaching this weeks goal!! :)
I am enjoying walking and really want to get this HABIT FORMED before the hot summer weather comes. If the habit is established by then, it will be harder for me to make excuses about 'how hot it is outside'!!!

What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track?
Spark recommends that users create motivational and visuals to aid in reaching goals. In order to encourage myself to stay on track with my walking routine, I have created visuals of a former me. I have pulled out pictures of myself, going as far back as high school. Along with this, I am looking at summer clothing! I LOVE CLOTHES SHOPPING!! The thought of being able to purchase a size or 2 smaller is encouraging and I focus on that.
Last, but not least (and I mentioned this before), I am using the Leslie Sansone DVDs to get walking routine started. Leslie is motivation!!

This will be my first blog... ever... on any social media network. I do not know why, because when there is something to say or learn, I love to share it.
Anyway, as a member of the 5% Winter Challenge, I have been tasked with beginning a simple blog series. This part of the challenge is designed to help us along in during the 2nd week of our 8-week journey.
1)What new habit do you wish to develop?
I would love to begin walking on a consistent basis. This past week, was the first time in years that I actually stuck to 4 days of walking as I had planned. Years ago, I used to walk and really enjoyed it. It was not only exercise, but it was time for me to think (which is why I prefer to walk alone). I hope this week brings about the same success!
2) How will you do that? PLANNING. NO EXCUSES!! JUST DO IT!!! (Leslie Sansone will help me get started!
