Summer Challenge....Can't Wait!!!!!


Sunday, July 21, 2013

I have my workout clothes ready and my workout equipment cleared off!!!!! I even spruced oup my page just for the challenge!!! I love these challenges because they make me think of the reasons I am on this journey. Sure I want to lose weight so I can be more active and look better but more importantly I want to be healthier and feel stronger. I also contemplate why my diet and exercise hasn't worked in the past. I think it is because I tend to put everything and everyone before myself. I also am a very much a stress eater. I had the stress eating under control for awhile but some events have triggered that behavior once again. I have decided I am important as anyone else so I deserve to take care of myself and to put myself first sometimes. I need to find ways that do not involve food to deal with my stress. Since ice cream and potato chips are my trigger foods I need to keep them out of the house. If they aren't there when I am feeling bad I can't eat them. This is how I plan to make the Summer 5% Challenge work for me

    I'm going to miss being on the Teddy Bears this time around. I just wish I would be assigned a team soon - I hate waiting this late to know!

    Stress eating is a big one for me too, but then it leads to just plain eating and that's the real problem. Good luck in this challenge! I'm looking forward to it in a way that I wasn't the last one, we'll be great!

    I'm right there with you on the putting everyone first...AND the stress eating. This has been a miserable last couple of years. But when the pendulum swings down..as it certainly has been...it has to swing back up...I'm hoping the upward swing is right around the corner.

I'll be your Ted~ster cheerleader...we'll hold each other accountable. NO junky food in the house and I'll share any great low cal recipies and any great calorie burners I come up with.

WE can and WILL do this...yep...I've got your back on this challenge! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
