Winter 5% Weight Loss Commitment

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

The Winter 5% weight loss challenge is approaching soon. I am in another Sparkteam which has 2 more weighins and one other team has 3 more weighins. The 5% Challenge will be starting in a few weeks. I will be doing the 5% Winter Challenge & I may start back up with Sparking as a team in March - it depends on my schedule.

It has been a while since I wrote up a commitment. I went back to the Fall 5% blog I posted in September & I am going to edit it to fit! I am not sure when this challenge will start, but hopefully I have the time to give my all!

I really want to get 155 by the end of Feb. If I can't do that, I definitely need to change the way I am doing things!

Winter 5% Challenge Commitment:
I will post my weigh-ins every week.
I will track my exercise to help out myself and my team!
I will stay on track with my calories/fat/etc the best I can.
I will try to post more frequently on the forum/team!
I will exercise at least 10 minutes five days a week.
I will exercise at least 30 minutes three days a week.
I will stick to my scheduled exercise - Zumba, yoga & 5K training
I will try new recipes from Spark & will create more batch meals for work
I will try to work on controlling my snacking at night
I will go to bed on nights when I feel tired/ready. I won't stay up late just because.
I will spend some ME time even with my crazy work schedule!
I will do the best I can with the changing weekly challenges!
I will not get discouraged if I do not meet the 5% loss in 8 weeks.

I especially like how you included the goal on sleep. I think I need to include that in my goals soon because I am staying up far too late these days because I am sparking and there's always more to read or do on this site.
Good luck on the 5% challenge. I'm looking forward to getting started again.
Which other challenges are you involved in right now.

    I'm always motivated when I read your posts about your commitments and how you're constantly creating and meeting little goals for yourself! It's great! I wish I had that much detail and zeal!

Keep up the great work! It sounds like you've really set yourself up for success!

    Great goals! It seems like sometimes it's easier to get all this stuff done when we're busy because there's no time to decide to not do it, if that makes any sense. Sounds like a good plan, and I know you'll meet your goals!

    What a great idea to get motivated to get to your goal this month. I have a hard time with staying up too late as well and paying for it the next morning. That's a tough one, but I know you can do it!

    You can do it! You've already accomplished so much; just need to push a bit harder to get it DONE!

We've missed you on Sparking as a Team; hope you get back to us in March!

    Kimpy ... I love reading your blogs. And this one is confirmation, as I planned to incorporate a 1-5% weight loss option in the next round of our BL Spring challenge ... emoticon !
