Sleep is Important

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Just saw a story on the news about how sleep is important to help you reach your weight loss goals. With that said, I'm off to bed. Goodnight. And although it was my first day back to work and I had to sit at my desk most of the day, I managed to get my exercise in--Yay!!

    I saw a story about that too. It's very important to hormones and metabolism plus being tired drives hunger. I'm working on sleeping 8 hours :)

I'm Committed

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Today I made sure to include plenty of activity in my day. I could have made better choices on a couple of snacks but I'm taking baby steps.

    Baby steps lead to walking confidently and then to running full sail and then into soaring to heights you only dreamed about! You got this!

    Baby steps are the way to go. I read too many stories about people who think they can treat their health like a race and get to the finish line as quickly as possible. This is a life-long journey and while we all have one big goal to reach, it is the short term targets that get us there. It is not one big jump.

Way to make good choices for YOU!!!

SPARK ON IN 2012!!

    Baby steps are the best steps to take, nice and steady. Keep it up, they add up fast if you let them :]

New Year, New Healthier Me

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2012. I'm ready to lead a healthier lifestyle. And through leading this healthy lifestyle I hope to lose a few pounds and inches as well. Twenty to thirty pounds would be awesome! This in turn will help with a couple of health issues which need to be addressed and rechecked in 6 months. But my main goal is to eat the right foods, exercise, and take care of myself. Only I can do it!

20pt Assignment

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

1. Why did you sign up for EPIC this leg? Motivation.

2. How has EPIC helped you thus far? Be accountable/tracking.

3. If you could change something about EPIC, what would it be (don't worry, my feelings won't be hurt and I want EVERYONE to be happy-- ideas are welcome)? Sorry I have no ideas since this is my first experience with this challenge.

4. Have you really dedicated yourself to this challenge, or have you been coasting by? (I want you to really dig down into the heart of this question and really examine your past couple of weeks) Not as dedicated as I should be.

5. How should we shake the challenge up in the next leg? Not sure maybe bonus points/incentives.

6. What Improvement challenge would you like to see in the future? Strive for 5 fruits/veggies.
