Spring 5% Challenge

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Here are my goals for the Spring 2012 5% Challenge

1) Follow Dukan Diet (no, I mean REALLY follow the diet -- not the halfway I've been doing it!)
2) Do some form of exercise for at least an hour a day: running, walking, dancing
3) Work harder at eating only while sitting down.
4) Abstain from carb binges
5) Journal and/or blog daily about my emotions and progress
6) Daily readings and prayer time with my husband

Current Weight: 149 pounds
Target Weight: 142.5 pounds
Weight loss goal: 7.5 pounds
By When: May 12, 2012

This is my third challenge (I think) and each time I have failed to give it all I've got. May this time be different!

    Good luck, PolarBearsCat! I hear you on #4, that's been my problem too (the two worst offenders: popcorn and chocolate). I'm on Day 3 of the Dukan Diet so far, and I've been going at it 100%, no cheats, nothing (first time I've EVER followed a diet like this), and I have to say that SO FAR, the cravings have evaporated. I feel like the restrictiveness and extreme lack of carbs makes me feel fuller and makes me less of an "impulsive" eater.
