1. Try a new healthy recipe - Not a new recipe, but am using plain coleslaw (ready made, no mayo, just the veggies) instead of rice. Cutting carbs even further

2. Get as many spark points as possible - Even making "appointments" for my next day's exercise!!!

3. Have a day of rest - I take an "easy" day, that's the closest I can get!

4. Find a motivational quote that has special meaning for you - My daughter is almost always in my head telling me the Nike slogan: Just do it!

5. Exercise outside at least one day this week if the weather will permit.

6. Measure, weigh, and track all your food - Always, and in grams too, none of the cups nonsense, way too sloppy for my liking!

7. Continue to work on tracking your former challenges - review your goals/mission statement/progress, get your water in, get 7-8 hours of sleep a night, get your strength training and cardio in, eat on plan, eat a healthy breakfast, avoid fast food and junk food, practice mindful eating, continue with your healthy habit, make use of your workout music, perform random acts of kindness, offer other members support, don't make excuses, read a sparkpeople article every day, and do something different this week - Doing my best, every day.

I usually continue them if there is any participation. I like them to be a growing experience where you continue to work on past challenges while adding new ones. It's about slowly transforming to a healthier way of life, not about perfection, but a gradual change.

emoticon Good morning!

I love these challenges--different every week! Will they continue into Feb, too?

Anyway

1) a couple days ago I made the Breakfast Cinnamon Eggs www.fatsecret.com/recipes/cinnamon-b
re
akfast-muffin/Default.aspx

It was emoticon

2) doing OK here, too.

3) doing OK here, too!

4) Decide! Commit!! SUCCEED!!!
~ self explanatory & it says it all!

5) walking is about it

6) I don't really measure or weigh so much anymore, altho I really do need to

7) doing OK on these, too. PB seems to be my downfall, especially at nite. But I've avoided it the past couple of evenings, so we'll see.

Still on plan, just kind of plugging along. The scale is stubborn, but the waist measurement is down a bit, so that's encouraging, since that is where I carry my weight mostly.

I tried Chef Meg's baked blueberry donut recipe this morning. They didn't really taste like donuts due to the texture, but they were very tasty. Next I'm going to bake the donuts but with the One Minute Flax muffin recipe.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

How is everyone doing? Are you still on plan? Struggling? Stick with it through the difficult times, Sparkpeople. The rewards are great.

Your challenges this week are to:

1. Try a new healthy recipe

2. Get as many spark points as possible.

3. Have a day of rest.

4. Find a motivational quote that has special meaning for you.

5. Exercise outside at least one day this week if the weather will permit.

6. Measure, weigh, and track all your food.

7. Continue to work on tracking your former challenges - review your goals/mission statement/progress, get your water in, get 7-8 hours of sleep a night, get your strength training and cardio in, eat on plan, eat a healthy breakfast, avoid fast food and junk food, practice mindful eating, continue with your healthy habit, make use of your workout music, perform random acts of kindness, offer other members support, don't make excuses, read a sparkpeople article every day, and do something different this week.
