The Summer challenge Pre-activity 1.2.3.

Monday, April 29, 2013

I have commit to challenge myself to better myself for health and to be fit.
The Spring to Summer 5% challenge will start sometime in May. And they just started doing Pre-Activity. I like this count down type of activity that will puts me ready for the challenge. And by doing this Pre-activity also make me excite up coming challenge and hold me accountable. To me, I feels like lining up the start line of the important life event. I like to feel good sense of tension. I imagine myself as a runner of Marathon, who is waiting for the sound of blank gun shot to be resound for start.

**Activity 1 is to reinforce "Win today check list." Activity 2 is to reinforce Win "tomorrow check list." How cool is that!? It was so nice to provided us for download a check list, if we does not have our own. And The question asked was... " Do you already have a daily routine that includes your fitness and well being? " My answer to this is, yes ! I do have a daily routine so far is working for me. I normally do my cardio work out in the morning 6 days a week. I walk on my treadmill about an hour for 3-4 miles. Then three time a week I go to gym and use their ST Machine.

**Activity 3 is to share your own Motivational Quotes/Mantras. Prepare myself for success by having the words that will move me to action and keep me on track for the 8 Weeks of the 5% Challenge.

I do have my own favorite motivational quotes that I've been using as my mantras since I started my health journey about 15 month ago. I have couple of them I always go back and re-read and motivate myself. Some of them are in my SP page.

"A year from now, you will wish you had started today,,!!

"I need to remember how important that I am making progress !!
And will reach my goal.

" Do something today that your future self will thank you for."

" Be positive, and believe in yourself. " You are what you repeatedly do."

** Thank you to 5 % challenge community. These are words from our leader Lynn.

Develop a mindset to help you succeed in this Challenge or your health journey. If you do not already have the right words to help you keep on track consider some of the ones here on Spark. Share and save your favorites for instant motivation any time! Print them off or put them on your page or in your blogs if you wish. There are hundreds to choose from.

    I love your commitment Mickey. I am a little hesitant to make this commitment only because it is hard to get busy and do it and then post it. I will shadow you.

    Well done on the commitment Mickey! We are the only ones who can motivate ourselves to the maximum and you've got the hang of it!
I'm sure the Spring into Summer challenge will be as successful for you as the previous one. Or maybe more!
I'm looking forward to it, too.
