A new week! Bring on the new 5% challenge - starts Saturday!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

WooHoo! I can hardly wait to meet my new teammates!


Summer 5% Challenge Commitment:
I will walk daily, use my Mini Trampoline daily, continuing to count calories
I will log my fitness minutes daily & do the additional daily challenges to support my team
New Target Date - August 10, 2011
Eat between 1250 and 1600 calories daily
Burn 2800 weekly (400 daily)
I needed to rethink my goals - I was trying to lose too much too quickly, I should have known better. I think this is what triggered my binging. I am not supposed to lose more than 3/4 pound a week :(
I need a calorie deficit of 2625 per week -
hmmmm ok, that should be a 375 calorie deficit daily.

P.S. I will take any loss and be thrilled!!
P.P.S. I AM going to rock this!!

    I hope that you're having a sensational weekend. Sorry that I've not been posting to your blogs much lately. I'm back to spending 5 nights a week sleeping in my van & babysitting the grandchildren during the day along with working so my time on the computer has been severely limited. Bright blessings to you my friend. Love, Dawn emoticon emoticon

    I find it so amazing how much in tune I have become to calories and fat and protein and ... oh my, just everything. When just a few short months ago I was shoveling in anything I felt like. I actually plan my meals ahead now. I guess once you start the momentum and it works, you just dont want to stop.

    Be gentle with yourself, Linda--play more. You've been wonderful and done wonderful things. Taking care of yourself with your weight goals is wonderful, and it's not the only wonderful thing about you.

122 is good when you're feeling the void where your father was. Noticing the rise is good. Now that you've noticed, it will drop because you'll fill that void with love instead of food.

Love from me, too, as I pass through!

    That's the way. When something isn't working, figure out why and tweak it. Now you've got it!! Your plan looks great. YOu are so right that trying to lose too fast can set you up for overeating. Meet those nutritional needs and you'll get to goal healthier, happier, and with fewer problems!!

    What exactly is a 5% challenge? I've seen people mention it before, but I don't really understand what it is...
I know you can do it though! :-D
