The Blizzard Challenge!

Friday, February 08, 2013

Winter blizzards top the list of legitimate excuses to stay in, sit on the couch, eat sundays, drink wine and eat popcorn all while relaxing and watching movies. These are all the things I love when even the government is warning me not to go outside.

I have the brownie sunday under my belt so far, a little cleaning and a plan to watch a movie I rented.

So what challenge, tonight I will get up every hour until I go to bed and do 50 jumping jacks, and I will jog in place for a count of 50.

Saturday I will clean my kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and the living room floor. I will also take the dog for a walk and try to get a friend to go out sledding with me:)

Sunday I will ski.

Bring it on Mother Nature:)

Mini Goals - Week 2

Monday, February 04, 2013

So this mini goal thing really worked for me last week. I think if I set true mini goals rather then these reach goals I will be even more likely to be successful. So here they are:

Workout 5 days this week - (3) 30 minute workouts and (2) 1 hour workouts

4 days of 1200 calories or less and 3 days of 1500 calories or less.

Monday - 1370 calories eaten - 30 minute workout

    It makes so much sense to break it down like this. We can do anything for a week, right?

Did You Know?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

How many American's diet every year?

According to the Boston Medical Center indicates that approximately 45 million Americans diet each year! WOW that is a lot of dieters.

How much do Americans spend on diets each year?

According to Businessweek Americans spend $40 billion a year on weight-loss programs and products.

The next question is if money spent = weight loss how is it that 1/3 of Americans are still obese?

This is why I love Sparkpeople, it helps you with a practical approach to weight loss without spending money to do it. If you burn more calories then you eat, you lose weight. Absent some metabolic disorder the concept of losing weight is simple.

Thanks Spark!
