My Commitment to the Spring 5% Challenge...

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Check Points:

Have you got your gym clothes, runners, water bottle, etc. ready to go? Yes. I have set up a space in my garage for my exercises. I have cushioned pads on the floor. I have my TV/DVD set up. I have my Nintendo Wii set up with my TV. I have and use my Wii Walk It Out and my Leslie Sansone Walk At Home DVDs. I have a weighted vest that I just purchased from Amazon that I plan on adding weights to as I shed weight. I plan in starting with 10 pounds then adding in increments of 5 pounds as I progress. I have my dog leashes and dogs at the ready. Hopefully, the Spring weather will allow for daily walks with the dogs.

What is your exercise plan? I plan on walking at least 30 minutes every day.

Do you know what diet you will follow? Found some recipes? Have you stocked up on the foods? SPARK Nutrition Guidelines; Recipes: Two Special Soups (one with spinach, the other with posole. Healthy and good. I have many ingredients and will get the rest this weekend. I'll make some batches up and freeze servings to use during the challenge time. I also will get plenty of fresh fruit and veggies. Yum!

Do you know how to connect with your team mates? I plan on posting on my Team Discussion Board every day. I will read at least a team blog every day and comment too. I will give goodies to my Team mates to celebrate their successes and give them support as they might need.

Did you put your Spring 5% Challenge Commitment on your page? Yes. Just now!

Update 4/26/2011:

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I'd like to say that I have lost 5% of my weight in the Winter 5% Challenge. Didn't happen. I've had some backsliding and have regained some of the weight that I have previously shed. I look forward to getting myself focused and moving in the right direction. I am excited that I have completed Rhythm Island for the second time using Wii Walk It Out. I've started my third Island build today. This is very motivating for me and I do enjoy it. Here's to the Spring Challenge. One day at a time...

    If it will make you feel any better, I gained back the 5% I am going to lose in the Spring Challenge.

We're all in this together!

We can do it!!

Spring Break with the Grandkids...

Saturday, April 16, 2011

I'm on a beach with the Grandkids for a great Spring Break week. I don't think I'll be doing much Sparking this week, but you never know. These last three days didn't leave me any time really for that...traveling across country does that to a person. But now that we're here and unpacked...this will be the week of nothing is impossible. Hope each day gives you a reason to smile.

Enjoy each moment.

Yesterday I finished my...

Sunday, April 10, 2011

2nd island build in the Wii Walk It Out program. I am very excited about that and I plan on starting a new island build next week. Today we had beautiful, sunny, rain free weather. My partner and I got to go outside and work in the yard: Mowing very long grass (it's been raining forever here); doing edging; weeding; hauling...you know...ALL the GOOD STUFF!!!. It felt so good. But, we are both moving a lot slower tonight. Advil all around. I hope you are having a lovely weekend too and getting more Vitamin D in your day than you can get in a pill.

    Hi
Great blog. You can send some of that rain my way, we need it badly. The one thing I miss from living up north is working in the yard. Felt good to get out in the spring air and get some exercise.
Enjoy your Sunday and thank you for sharing.
