commitment for the winter 5% challenge

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

ok last challenge i was pretty successful. but i didn't have easy access to spark and went a bit out of control, breaking all the rules just to get the scale numbers down. and then.... whamm-o, the upward spiral started to get out of control. we've all experienced that before, no?

so, my commitment this time around is FIRST stop the spiral! if i simply maintain my starting weight, this will do!
BUT if at all possible, i'd like to get down to where i was before. at least halfway.

my program is the usual, dancing, walking, swimming, and housecleaning keep me busy at least 2 hrs daily, easily. so exercise is no problem.
my weak point is evenings, i tend to plunk in front of the tv and eat mindlessly. so i'll have to plan this time more efficiently. guess i'll have to start tracking, brrrrr i hate it. it's such an eye-opener!

ok guys and cats, we're on!

    You can do it! Try flossing and brushing right after dinner. It's an old trick of mine that works for me! I don't know yet which team I am on, but good luck to everybody!

    Good plan. Tracking etc. does take time to make a habit. For sure.

I have a super idea:Since I am a Spirited Under Dawg, I will chase you up as many trees as it takes for us to get down to where we want to be! emoticon emoticon and emoticon emoticon
