Summer 5% Challenge pre challenge assignment

Friday, July 08, 2011

The summer challenge is here and I am trying to psych myself up for it. I did the spring one and as excited as I was join, I guess my heart wasn't into it. I need to fix that. I have to do this for me!!!

I want to look better and feel better about myself. I want to look in the mirror and not see the fat girl any more. There isn't a fat girl there, but it is still the person I used to be that I see. I would love to get off some of the medication that I have been on and be medication free. I would love to be able to wear cute tank tops and sundresses, but I know that I cannot target where my weight loss happens. What a bummer that is!!!

I know what I have to do. I know that exercise is a big part of a healthy lifestyle. Doing the exercise in your head does not count!!! I wish it did, but it doesn't. I have to get off the couch and start moving; doing the activities that I used to enjoy.

I will continue using Spark for the nutritional tracking. I just have to remember to track everything and not just the food that I think is good for me. I have been eating a lot of fresh fruit. I get it fresh every week.

I hope that I can remember to connect on the team page. I will try really hard to huddle and comment.

To be honest, I am lacking motivation right now. I need a kick in the butt to get me moving in the right direction. I know what I need to do, I just need to do it!!

    Pictures have always worked for me. Try putting pictures of tank tops and sundresses you like on your fridge or the desktop of your computer.

    I still see the fat little girl I used to be, too. Confidence seems to keep her at bay.

    You can do this! emoticon
