Fall 5% Challenge Day 1 - Treadmill Desk - Canadian Thanksgiving - Win List

Saturday, October 12, 2013

I ready for the Fall 5% Challenge and I will lose10.5 pounds in 8 weeks. I have to get over 'living in the moment' and focus on my weight goal 8 weeks away. My 5% Fall Mantra - My desire to change is stronger than my desire to remain the same!

Upstairs my treadmill desk was just set up in front of a window overlooking the street. I can see the dog walkers go by. After I post this blog I am taking my laptop up there so I exercise while I Spark. Last year I took a picture of my $0 computer table when it was in a temporary location.


I made my Win Checklists.

I have printed it off and will put it next to my treadmill where I will see it at least 3 times a day.

I need to firm up my exercise plan. I only included things I can do with no equipment/gym/pool. Then I have no excuses if I travel, I can still exercise.

Next week I am headed to Toronton, ON so I want to be off to a good start.

It's Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada and we are making dinner here. I am looking at recipes and think I can make a low calorie stuffing with lots of celery and onion, mashed potato & mashed cauliflower together, low fat gravy.

Any other ideas?
