Yes, I am posting this late. Why? Because better late than never. I often make excuses about not being able to workout or make a race because I am too "late" with my time/training. Here I am being accountable and committing, late or not...I am doing this.

During this challenge, I have a general goal of _Getting closer to goal and toning_.
My biggest challenge will undoubtedly be _Lack of time. Work and school year stress_.
My nutrition goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Up protein and lower carb intake. Work on incorporating more vegetables and cooking a head of time. Dinner will NOT end up eating random leftovers scarfed down over the sink in between work, gym, and whatever sports practice my son has that night. Avoiding holiday/tailgating/wedding celebration buldge._

My strength training goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _Arms and legs_.
My rest and flexibility goals for the next 10 weeks will be focused on _More Pilates and Yoga time. It helps with core strength and balance _.
PART ONE - DIET & EXERCISE
Between now and 9/19, I am going to _ST in the morning and run or do cardio in the evening (as many days a week as possible). Fit in extra walks, squats, ST, or lunges where possible_.
Between now and 9/19, I am not going to _Let stress get the best of me. I am going to fight it with planning and work/life balance. I will NOT drink anything that I cannot factor into my calorie plan for the day. If I over eat I need to balnce with increase activity. I will NOT feel guilty for making time to reach my goals_.
These 3 excuses will be unusable for the duration of this template:
I am too tired
I will do it tomorrow
I deserve a break...a cupcake...a nap...whateva
***BONUS CHALLENGE- ADD UP HOW MANY CALORIES YOU *DRINK* THIS WEEK! (NON ALCOHOLIC AND ALCOHOLIC ALIKE!)
You can motivate me by _Sharing how well you are doing with you goals. eminding me about the green dress I have to wear at a wedding in October. Did I mention my ex will be in the wedding as well? I MUST look extra amazing.
PART TWO - THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
This week, take the time to do one of the following just for yourself.
A. complete a fun project
B. start a fun project
C. brainstorm ideas for something you can do just for yourself over the winter, something that will take a semi-long time to complete. - Like make your own new bag, or put together a family photo album, or redecorate a room, or start a journal, or make a quilt, etc
D. Make a list of things you loved as a child but have not done or participated in for a very long time. See which ones you can incorporate into your grownup life.
Practice setting time aside for yourself, either every day or once a week, and allow yourself to be selfish for a little while, and recharge, so you can better handle the rest of your life and be better for your family or job and friends.
