Completed all steps!

Dwelling on past mistakes does you no good. You can change everything today if you want to, or you can keep living the life you've always lived. It's up to you, but remember this: every moment is an opportunity to change your life.
~Aaron Chavez

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

Tuesday's Planning Steps and Action Steps include the following:

1) Weigh Yourself and Record Current Weight
(This is solely as a gauge to record your starting weight at the beginning of your 55-day Challenge... not for purposes of focusing on the number on the scale or beating yourself up. Detach yourself from the number and take an objective approach to this one-time weighing and recording)

2) Drink one waterbottle filled with water FIRST THING in the morning
(Make sure to calculate how many ounces the waterbottle holds and deduct it from your 64-ounce minimum total for the day)

3) Plan out your exercise schedule for this week on a piece of paper, daytimer, or calendar, and choose at least TWO DAYS where you will schedule your exercise for first thing in the morning instead of for later on in the day. Let's get those metabolisms going!

4) Consume two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables

5) Track all of your food today

6) Exercise for a minimum of 11 minutes OR, for a more intense challenge, increase your usual workout minutes by 11 minutes.

Yvonne, I completely understand.

And that's a good reminder to all of us.
If weighing in is going to work against empowering you, don't do it. It's totally optional. You decide.

Also, if you are able to do some of the steps and not all of them, THAT IS OKAY. The goal here is to CHALLENGE YOURSELF and to kick it up a notch each day. Tweek and tailor this as you see fit, but stay true to the challenging yourself part.

I did weigh in this morning and let me just say that...
I really need this challenge!

I think you all are doing so great and your enthusiasm is so uplifting!
WAY TO GO, WARRIORS!

It's all taken care of except weighing myself. I refuse to step on the scale till I am off these steroids. I have been on them since January. I am following my program but I don't want to know how much the steroids have caused me to gain.

I know me and if I gained a lot I just know I will binge. It is better I eat within my calorie range and exercise and continue on without knowing my weight.
