2013 Winter Into Spring 5% Challenge - Assignment #6

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past. OK that might be too long a list, so give 3 or 4 reasons and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!


I recently found out i suffer from both Fibromylagia and IBD, and when they flare up it somewhat stops me from doing the things i should be doing. I have been able to do things when they are a lower pain but my constant pain is a 6, on scale from 1 to 10, 10 being unbearable, when i get to a 8 or more i do tend to stop.

In the past i had trouble sticking to something, and when i fell out i usually gained it back so i lost motivation. Also the fact i don't have a good support system to help me loose weight.

Flexible plans don't really work with me because it has no structure, and without it i fall out and go back to my own ways, but to build a structure plan i have trouble doing, so its a bit double.

Time management is an issue with me, so little time, so much too do. I need to work on this.

    I am a late night snacker. I think it is because I am so busy during the day so that when I sit down it all hits me. I have tried to stick to the policy that I can eat small quantities of healthy foods. It is kind of a hit or miss thing though.

    Evenings are my problem. My husband goes to bed earlier than I do so I stay up and watch another 30 minutes or so of TV or read my book. That's when I want to snack or have a glas of wine. Need to find a way to fight that bad health habit.
