I really need to lose my 5% this go around. Doing the bare minimum to get by isn't enough for me anymore!
Here are some things I am going to commit to doing NOW before the challenge starts (and will continue them throughout):
-60,000 steps a week MINIMUM. This allows for my 10k a day goal with maybe one "off" day. Sometimes I end the week with even less and that's no good.
-Logging my food on MFP. I have been doing better at this, but not 100% and I really need to update the nutrition goals anyway.
-I can only go on other social sites AFTER I do my MFP and Spark People each day. I've been letting both of those slip away and I need to make them a PRIORITY.
When the challenge begins I will:
-Log my minutes/miles every day (even if it's a 0!)
-Interact with my team daily
-Lose my 5% (well, really hoping!)
Part of what I find so overwhelming about SP (besides the site re-design which is still confusing me in terms of navigation), is the amount of friends I have! I love having a lot of friends, but with so many that go M.I.A. it's hard to keep track of everybody. I had a surge of new adds when I was M.O.D. a while back, but I think I may need to go through and weed out some of the inactive accounts. Having the blog subscriptions does help, but not everyone blogs. I feel like I'm missing a lot of important things!
I had some interviews and I thought they went well as I was called back for more meetings, but in the end it didn't work out. It's a little disappointing, but I'm still looking.
I won three ribbons at the LA County fair this weekend for my baking. I won a few in 2012 and then nothing last year so I was happy to win again! Luckily I haven't been baking too much so there hasn't been a ton of temptations around the house. But for me, I still find a way to overdo everything.
We're going to a couple weddings in September and I am bummed about my appearance. John tried on his suit last night and it's LOOSE on him. What the heck?! Story of my life.
Well here's hoping I really MAKE the time to myself a priority this Fall.
