For the Fall 2014 5% Exercise Commitment Challenge --
Using this blog for accountability purposes....
ASSIGNMENT #1 ==
What is your exercise plan?
-- Cardio 30 minutes per day
-- Strength 3x per week for at least 10 minutes to start
-- Use my Spark Activity Tracker to count my steps...begin at 5,000 per day and work up to 10,000 per day by the end of the challenge
ASSIGNMENT #2 ==
Do you know what diet you will follow? 21 Day Fix (Beachbody) emphasis on portion control, eating clean, no junk or preservatives
Found some recipes? Yes, some came with the program. Plus, i have several other books/cookbooks that I can use.
Grocery list? Yes, I made one out
Shop? Did some shopping today to get started on meal planning for the week ahead.
Do you have the food on hand to get started? Some of it. I made several lunches today so I can just put them in my lunch box to take to work. That way I won't be tempted by McD's or the deli dept where I work.
Have you followed this diet before? No
Did you clean up your kitchen? Not yet, but plan on putting my food items on one shelf and the family's on the others.
