5% Winter Challenge - CATS team

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Well, I am back at it again! These challenges are so helpful on staying on task and moving forward with weight loss and fitness goals. Over the last few weeks, I have been very busy at work and have resorted to fast food and no exercise. UGH!! This usually translates into pounds gained and this is no different.

Enough with my excuses... because life will always have ups and down and we just need to adapt.

Since I have put on weight, I need to lose about 4 lbs. This may not sound like much for some people but nonetheless, it is no easier to lose. I am going to refocus and pay more attention to my food intake. Which by the way, I have done miserably today emoticon

However, on the plus side... I did go walk/run for 2 miles today. A little embarassing because I have done 5 half marathons over the last few years but again, I feel like my fitness level has hit rock bottom. I am also going to play doubles tennis this afternoon, so I hope through the exercising, I will find my old self again and start moving!!

    Don't compare yourself to where you were previously...Just focus on all the positive steps you are making going forward and it sounds like your are re-focusing! Great job!

    Sounds great! The less you have to lose, the harder it is!
I am on the Cats team, too. This is my first time, looks like fun.
See you around. emoticon

    I've been off track lately also. When I do workout, I can tell I'm not where I used to be.

This is my first 5% Challenge, and you're not the first SF to say they're great. Still waiting for my team invite. I'm excited!

See you on the boards emoticon
