Why the 5% Spring Challenge?

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I must say, I am very excited about this Spring Challenge! I am getting more and more motivated by the day. I love all the pre-challenge tasks... getting yourself set up for success! Genius! Put my goals on my page, wrote my daily list, practicing tracking my food, re-reading my reasons to be 12 lbs lighter... That one, maybe I should share. It may be helpful to others. I know after reading it again (I hadn't in more than 6 months) I got a lot more motivated!

So, bottom line is, I have a plan. Not just I am going to eat less carbs, or I am going to drink less wine... but... I am allowing myself only one non-freggie carb a day, and I am limiting myself to 4 glasses of wine a week (I have been drinking about 7-8).

Luckily, I love to be active and have no problem exercising. It is the diet where I neeed to make the changes.

So... let's do this together! Let's commit to be fit and healthy! I truly believe that if you are honest with yourself and are exercising to the best of your ability (doing SOMETHING at least 6 days a week), and you are eating as healthily as you can (80% of the time), then you will be healthy and fit. And the weight will fall where it may.

So here's to 5%! And to a healthier us!

    Thanks! Yes! Let's do this thing!
I just looked at your Spark page and I did a Dirty Girls mud run last year! It was fun! But I can't seem to find women to do it with. It was just 2 of us and her daughter. And so not as competitive as I would have like. Would have been more fun with more girls! I'll try again!
