November 11 - 17
This week for the main challenge we had to cut out one processed food and see how it makes us feel with the end of the week. The food i choose was Icecream, I did have one temptations this week but i held it, But now from now on i will try not to have icecream more than twice a week, i am not at the stage yet where i can continue cutting it out, 1 week is more than enough at this time of time, Without icecream i sadly went into the other option of chocolates, But even so i stayed in my ranges which was good, I had already done 2 weeks without candy and chocolate before with another challenge, that too was hard but i got through with it, i used to be someone who did these sort of challenges but gave in too quickly when it got hard, this time around with help with sparkpeople i have been able to push forward and continue it, i do it not only to get the points up for my team Wave Runners but i do it for myself, even though it was hard, it shows me what my limits may be. Sometimes it is good to test them to see how far you can go to better yourself. But yes it was a real hard one to limit Ice cream this week. But i had no icecream for 7 days so earned my 30 points.
For my Bonus for the 20 points we had to write a daily gratitude of something you are grateful or thankful for that day. I wrote them in my daily blogs but i write the list up here.
Here is the list of my gratitude :
11 - I am grateful for the feedback and encouragements from sparkpeople.
12 - I am grateful for the opportunities i get in life.
13 - I am grateful for the wonderful brother i have. And Happy Diwali for those who celebrate it.
14 - I am grateful for life and of sparkpeople existing.
15 - I am thankful for the support from the sparkpeople community and friends.
16 - I am thankful i have a job that i enjoy
17 - I am grateful for weekends.
For the team challenge we had to do wall pushups, starting at a start number and adding 5 additional wall pushups the next day. I did this to get my 50 points.
Monday: (10) 10
Tuesday: (15) 15
Wednesday: (20) 20
Thursday: (25) 25
Friday: (30) 30
The number in the brackets was my goal for the day, the other number is how many i did, i didn't do any extra knowing these do take time and i did not want to over do it.
