Restarting 2020 - finding my motivation

I am taking part in the 2020 Summer 5% Challenge, the goal is to lose 5% of my current weight - so about 12 lbs in 8 weeks.

This is my plan


FOOD:
My diet plan is to eat more fresh fruits and veggies, and count my calories. Everything in moderation.

EXERCISE:
My plan is to walk every day with my daughter. Will serve a double purpose- exercise and bonding time.

MOTIVATION:
What can you tell yourself every morning that will give you a sense of purpose for your day?
-Another day, another chance to be awesome and get healthy.

What can you tell yourself when you are thinking of skipping a walk or a workout?
-Just move! You won't regret it! Your DD needs a healthy mommy!

Is there something you can tell yourself when you are reaching for that second helping or that cookie?
-Do I really need that? Will it really help anything?

SUPPORT: I will work to support my team, commenting in as many forum posts as I can, and visiting sparkpages to help motivate my team.

    Another 5% challenge is coming to an end tomorrow when we do our final Saturday weigh-in and I hope you have been successful in reaching your goals. But, if not, keep living your healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and exercise and you will eventually see results as your body makes its adjustments. Remember about the in-between challenge that starts tomorrow on Saturday. It is a good way to stay on track and maybe even lose another pound or two. Also, I hope to see you in a couple of weeks next time at the Fall 5% Challenge with the Rowdy Rebels team.

    Best wishes & stay well as we continue our journey.

    Your SparkFriend,
    ~~~Marilyn

    We all have our ups & downs when we do our weekly weigh-ins. Here is something to think about...

    “Instead of letting the scale alone determine whether you're a success or failure, use more reliable measures to determine your progress. My philosophy is that weight loss is not a goal, but the result of healthy habits like a better diet and regular exercise. When you do step on the scale and don't see the reading you had hoped for, ask yourself these questions: Am I doing what I am supposed to be doing? Am I making healthy food choices most of the time? Am I exercising consistently? If you are, then trust that your body is making positive changes, and the results will come. If you are not, then resolve to be consistent in healthy behaviors to see the results you want.”
    ~~~ Received this thoughtful info from KRYs210...excellent advice!!

    Imagine that day where you can finally say I did it! When you can say, I never gave up, I never quit! Imagine that day when you win that gold medal, or reach your goal weight. Where these moments of pain turn into memories for that goal you wanted to obtain. It might take long to reach that moment, but as soon as you get there you’ll thank yourself for the rest of your life.
