Summer 5% Challenge!

Sunday, July 14, 2013

I recently joined a new team, Summer 5% Challenge. It is a very active team that I am pretty excited to be apart of. I hope it helps me continue to stay motivated and reach my goal of losing 5% of my weight. The Challenge officially starts on July 27th but there are assignments we will be given leading up to it starting. I really love this because it gives me time to get ready and really think about what I want to accomplish my goal.

Some questions for me to answer are: How much and how often will you exercise? What diet will you follow? How will you support your team?

I plan on continuing with my current regimen on Spin twice a week, ZUMBA or Cardio Dance once-twice a week, and Strength once a week (maybe twice). I also want to try some new classes at the gym like Yoga and Pilates. If I don't go to the gym I will walk during my lunch hour.

My diet will continue to be focused on portion control, tracking everything I eat, and as much whole foods as possible.

I will support my team by posting on the forum and encourage my other team members.

I hope you follow along with me on my journey for the next couple of months! If you are interested in joining the Challenge check out the team page. Understand though that it is a very active team, only join if you are serious. This is why I joined. I need the challenge of being active on this site everyday and I hope being involved with this Challenge will help me.

If you are a fellow 5% member please friend me so we can encourage each other.
