Fall 5% Challenge is Here!

Saturday, September 25, 2010

emoticon of the Fall Challenge has finally started. All of the work to get everything going was worth every minute! The team page looks emoticon thanks to the efforts of all 3 Team Leaders!

Now for the bad news-one of the first challenges is blogging and feedback on other team mates blogs. I will be the first to admit-I am a rotten blogger. I can't even keep a journal consistently!! So this will be a REAL challenge for me. I almost wish that this part of the challenge was going to be longer. I do fine on logging my nutrition and fitness, but my blogging and journaling are almost non-existent. Hopefully by the end of the first challenge, things will be better.

Then I weigh-in the AM. I will be the first to admit, I haven't exercised for the past two weeks. Stress at home has been escalating and I have let my fitness fall by the wayside.

The good news is I only gained 2.2 pounds. Trust me, it could have been a lot worse. I didn't log my nutrition, but the things I learned previously about portion control, staying away from fried foods, and eating healthier have definitely become a permanent part of my lifestyle change. Good for me!!

New I need to get back on track, reset my goals and get back to my regular workout routine. It will almost be like starting from scratch, but every minute I spend exercising will make me a healthier me!!

This is emoticon for a healthier me!

    emoticon I see the silver lining in the storms of life that hit us all. Some of those things that you never did before have become habits. Before long the healthy lifestyle will be yours!
