Winter 2013 5% Challenge Assignment #1

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Well, I need to get my tushie moving in the right direction. I was tossing ideas for a blog around in my head when I realized that I had forgotten to start my assignments for the upcoming Winter 5% challenge. I've been doing these for a while - with mixed results. I've lost weight in all but the last 2 (I think this is #7 for me). The first one I did was my most successful. I lost the full 5% I was hoping to lose. I'll be the challenge leader for the wonderful Teddy Bear team again. I think I'm doing okay and learning how to balance my needs along with the needs of the team. It's definitely a learning experience. That being said, here's my commitment to the 5% challenge...

I commit to be the best leader and participant I can be. I commit to daily cardio exercise and strength training at least 4 times per week. I also commit to write a daily blog, track and post my fitness minutes and track my food. I will update the team totals daily and read and comment on team member's blogs as I am able. I will weigh in weekly and post my weight to the challenge thread. I also promise to try not to dive myself completely nuts and will do my best each day.

I'm ready to start and most certainly ready to be 5% lighter! Feel free to join me along the way. I'll probably throw out a few personal challenges along the way. Sort of like some of the monthly 3000 or 1500 ones I did with some of my other friends a few months back. I want to make this a great 8 weeks!

Hope everyone is having a great week! Happy hump day to you all! LOL! Catch you later!

    I'm so ready! (The break has been too long) This will be my tenth Teddy Bear assembly within the 5% Challenge. I want to get back into a healthy BMI and hope I can do this in 8-12 weeks. Let's rock this next challenge!
