Focus....

Monday, May 06, 2013

OK.
So I have cleaned up my SparkPage and I am ready to start the Spring into Summer 5% Challenge as a Cloverleaf.
If I want to succeed I have to have a lot of focus. These are my personal challenges and how I plan to address them:
1) Afternoon and late evening snacking... This is a biggie. If I stick to fruit and cheese I am OK. It is only when I start thinking that I can have one serving of those "whatevers" that are in the pantry that I get OOC! No more!
2) Be a more active community member. Now that I have cleaned up my friend feed (for the most part... I have still kept a few people on my feed who have been with me since the beginning and who I know come in and out of Spark in waves) I will be looking for new friends who motivate me and to whom I hope I can be a source of support as well. I will post in the Cloverleaf Clubhouse and try to comment on people's pages much more often.
3) Don't be lazy!!! I really want to try and get my 10,000 steps a day in. Today will defin itely be a challenge (as will Thursday) because those are the days I work and when I work I am VERY literally sitting in a chair for 9 hours straight. Doesn't leave much time for walking... and I get home at 10:00.... This morning I need to finish the laundry, etc. BUT I will try.

    You can do it emoticon

    Yes, May is going to be MARVELOUS!

    What I'm working on / what is toughest for me is tracking AND staying in my calorie range.

    Let's do this!

    Good luck with your plan. You can do this. Good luck with getting 10000 steps in. I walk at work and it is still a challenge

    Those goals are all attainable & you can do it! My plan is to be more consistent with my exercise. I also work at a desk most of the day and try to get up every few minutes and walk around. Do you wear a pedometer? You might be getting in more steps than you think..doing laundry..doing errands, etc. Let's have fun as we reach our goals. emoticon

    10,000 steps a day on a working day is an ambitious goal!!! Good luck!!! emoticon

    Lately I regard my exercise as more important than laundry or other household chores. (well of course my mother's opinion is that i am lazy and nuts but whatever) Of course these chores need to be done but i can always find a good reason to ditch exercising and I decided to put a stop on it. No matter what, I try to make it the first thing I do in my little free time!

    I guess it is more complicated when other people depend on you (whereas i live alone), but on the other hand hey maybe it is time for them to start doing the laundry themselves emoticon

    Do you have to stay seated for 9 hours? Can you get up and move once an hour? I have an SP buddy who does that most days because she has a desk job.
    My plan is to start getting a little exercise every day. I have been slacking for several months and my body is letting me know. I have a pretty physical job as a home health aide, but some of my clients just need me to be nearby without actually doing a whole lot.

    I also joined the challenge. My plan is to sit in front of the computer less and get outside more. Now that the weather is better I plan to get my gardens in tip top shape. Candy Crush Saga, a game on Facebook, has also been wasting my time, no more. Good luck on the challenge, it will be lots of fun.
