It's Here! Summer 5% Challenge!

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Day 1 of 56

This season I was put on the Firecracker Team. Is that an inspiring name or what? emoticon It's already an active team as we have had pre-challenge challenges and got to prepare our minds and agendas for the coming weeks.

This week will be unique. I'll do my best . After all, life throws circumstances at us. First off, we're hitting 106 outside in the non-existant shade. It's difficult for me to eat when I'm hot, so I started my day off in the usual way at 4 am with a hearty, protien rich breakfast. I have lots of fruit to snack on. It goes without saying I'll be staying hydrated as always.

Secondly, I'll be having medical procedures done later in the week so will be fasting, yet again, to prep for it. My scale reading may be a little off, but that's ok. The point of all challenges is to spur us on, reinforce the good habits we've ingrained, and enjoy life along the way.

I'll update my numbers on my S-page. I'm going to thank all of you in advance for cheering me on! You all help me stay on track!

    All the Firecrackers are right with you! The great part is that it's an 8-week challenge and not just 1 week. So, I hope all goes well this week, and we'll just keep pushing on after that!

  You have a great mindset and that is key. Way to go in planning ahead for life's adventures that don't always go according to what we'd like them to. emoticon

(I'm a Firecracker, too!) emoticon
