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!
