Fall 5% Challenge-time!

Sunday, September 18, 2011

As I get ready for the 5% Fall Challenge, I need to change my Intro again.

I didn't lose any weight with the last 2 challenges - maybe even gained a couple of pounds - and after fighting with it for 4 months now, I am just going to settle in where I am and maintain! 120-ish is awesome!!

I am using a Stationary Bike along with my daily walking now - and working the trampoline in where I can. My focus now is to try to make more muscles!

I am still counting calories and will be counting them for the rest of my life!

Bring on the 5% Fall Challenge - I am so ready!!

**this challenge keeps me going . . . with my exercise minutes! it's not only about losing weight . . . it's about making better habits too!

I'm a Dawg again! WooHoo!! Woof! Woof!

**edit: I more or less maintained through the last 2 challenges. After much soul-searching, I have decided to go for it one last time! I love being part of the team and will remain regardless - but I am going to give it one more try at getting the 5 lbs off before winter sets in.

This time is different though - I refuse to allow myself to feel pressured and I am stepping up the exercise/cardio and I am feeling the biking in my thighs so I think I am on the right track. I have even figured out how to use the timer on the bike! If I am able to burn the extra calories daily to meet my "food-frenzy requirements" it will be a go!

    YOU GO GIRL!
You know you get so in the habit of counting calories it becomes a subconscious thing too.
As a Nutritarian I needn't count calories now but do anyway and I'm still tracking them with the nutrition tracker here LOL
And you know what I'm finding? That I'm eating to my heart's content no limits on fruits and vegetables but Sundays is my "cheat" day when I eat in the lower percentile and have a meat. So I definitely want know my calories, fats, carbs, proteins and sodium levels.
