Hmm... What to improve on? emoticon

I did my first challenge winter to spring 5% challenge --- it was an adjustment going to fitness, food and making habits. I also like the " countdown things to do before the challenge" getting ready to change cretain things this time around.

I did pretty good ... Considering I have been doing some walking in the past usually a block around my street....---I didn't think walking to groegies stories or drugstore errand or occesational trips to hositpals part of walking!! emoticon emoticon

The habits part like drinking water ( definelity need to work on that) and getting up now and then to get something to walk off my sleepy legs from sitting) I have balance issues so I have be careful too ( allgries this time year) . Walking little longer and nice weather sunshine calling my name....) emoticon emoticon

I think the food part is the hardest for me to change because I think im triggered by emtions
What does one do by not eating trigger direct something else to do instead of eating???!!??? emoticon

Another part is grew up eating junk and gradually wean away to some healthier " power foods" engery that last little while longer for instance does a milkshake or chocate milk be better for me???? Any suggestions would be helpful. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I like the motivational quotes ( activity 3 )
One comes to mind is "persistence ( staying on a goal) than perfection" is good because I can be little more honest on my struggles and sometimes I just dont know what they are and others I realize by reading other people blogs sharing struggles in staying a goal or changing food habits etc)

I hope to improve more this time around and have an idea how what to improve my fitness weight and food part in this challenge. Any advice would be appreciated. emoticon

    Your first challenge and you did great, Dolly! emoticon Now you have gained some things and are ready to try others. For me, food is a problem too so I sympathized.

    I wish you the best in setting up your next goal. emoticon emoticon

    I enjoyed your blog. I like your focus. I think that the chocolate milk is fewer calories but also will give you energy. The milkshake (at least the ones bought out) is probably VERY high in both fat and calories. Check the nutritional values on the tracker and see what fits into YOUR plan better. Of course you can have either depending on the situation - check it out and plan for it. I vote for the milk more frequently and only an occasional milkshake.

    Great blog !! I love the countdown activity too !! They are fun and make me accountable before the challenge. I've stopes drinking Cow milk and now I am drinking Almond mik. It has 50% more calcium then regular milk. emoticon
