5% Challenge Assignment #1

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Have you got your gym clothes, runners, water bottle, etc. ready to go?
Got my sweats, shorts and t-shirts ready, I still need new shoes! My water bottle is full and I'm ready!

What is your exercise plan?
to exercise. I'm horrible in this area and want to create a new habit of exercise, including loving it instead of hating it. Illness in my family has made starting this hard this month, but I am just as determined! My plan is to break out and make good use of many dvd's I have including several cardio hula dance, zumba, samba reggae, and SP workout dvd's: 28 day bootcamp and the new total body one. I'll probably throw in walking as well when I can, maybe even bring my exercise bike back in the house.

Do you know what diet you will follow? Found some recipes? Have you stocked up on the foods?
I am going raw. So my diet will consist of lots of fresh veggies and fruits, very little dairy and lean meat/poultry/fish, basically NO wheat, rice, corn, sugar, or anything with preservatives or artifical ingredients. I bought a couple of books on going raw, so yes, I do have recipes. :) But not stocked up... hard to stock up on fresh foods. :)

Do you know how to connect with your team mates?
Sure do!

Did you put your Winter 5% Challenge Commitment on your page?
About to do that now.

    You'll be in better shape to take on all that once whatever is ailing you goes away. Please take care and don't overload yourself. I pushed too hard last year and paid for it. I don't mean to lecture. I just would hate to see that happen to you. Seems like you'll have time to get better before the challenge officially starts.

I don't know what team I'll be on. I did the last 3 seasonal challenges and think I told the leader the wrong one I was on in the fall. I really don't care which team I'm on. The idea is to do well and help others to do well.

emoticon At the end of 8 weeks we'll get to pat each other on the back and say emoticon !
