Wanting to post my goals for the Summer 5% Challenge, I began reading some of my earlier blogs to see what earlier goals have been. It's a great thing to do. I find that some "new" things to try have become regular habits now--like exercising 120 minutes a day at least 3 days of the week. That's the most we can log for a day in the challenge, and it's become one of my best weight loss boosters.
I want to incorporate into my Summer goals the "one word" I adopted for the year 2012 in January--ACTION.
Since winters in Michigan are a time of hibernation for me, summers are the natural time for outdoor activities.
Besides tracking my meals each day, and making a big effort to stay within my calorie guidelines, I will:
Put my feet on the ground in some kind of activity for at least 60 minutes each day; some I think I'll enjoy that will be a step up from my winter activities:
Walking with poles
Walking to the grocery store and back carrying a few groceries
Meditation outside (no exercise min., but great to do)
Ready, Set, Go! Let's get this challenge party started!!!
