“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.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Forgot to send in an update this week, but things are still on track. Met my goals last week and am trying out a 10K running clinic to shake things up a bit in that department. . . could be fun! emoticon

Do Not Expect Perfection, and Do Not Sit in Silence

To eat is a necessity.
To eat intelligently is an art.

PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART.

Over the last 6 months I've been slowly working up my jogging time to 60 mins a week. I was actually able to keep this up during the holidays and am looking to add a little variety for January.

While my first instinct was to add a huge number of minutes, in the interest of balance, consistency, and my long-term goals I am instead going to commit an additional 20 mins per week to an activity other than jogging.

So my total goal time for the month is 320 mins. . . not flashy or spectacular, but reasonable, manageable, and attainable.

Now to do it! emoticon

Happy Monday to you!

It is time for determining your JANUARY CARDIO MINUTES. How many minutes of cardio are you doing daily? How many is that in a week? How much is that for a month? Can you increase that for the month of JANUARY?

Many of us were faced with holiday food temptations. Increasing your exercise minutes for JANUARY is a great way to fight the "5lbs. holiday weight gain".

Your challenge today is to DETERMINE HOW MANY CARDIO MINUTES YOU CAN DO IN THE MONTH OF JANUARY. Make a pledge to yourself. You DESERVE to be healthy IN 2011. Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do TODAY.

Were you with our team for the month of DECEMBER? How did you do with your DECEMBER cardio minutes? Did you meet or exceed your pledged minutes? Did you have hurdles that made you fall short? Please feel free to share your experiences with the team. Your experiences might be the same thing that other members are feeling. We are all here to help one another.

Lastly, make a note of how many minutes you want to accomplish in JANUARY. You can make a note of your minutes here, as well as on your calendar. Put a note in your gym bag. Put a sticky note in your closet by your walking/running shoes. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Have a COMMITTING MINUTES FOR A HEALTHIER ME Monday!
