5 by the 5th

Thursday, May 30, 2019

A blog from me on a Thursday? I know it's a couple of days early. I usually blog on Saturdays, but today is like an extra Saturday being a German holiday (Ascension Day). Sometimes I forget that a midweek holiday is coming up and then it's such a nice surprise to have a free day with no commitments!
"5 by the 5th" is my idea for a personal challenge. I would like to lose 5 pounds by my birthday on July 5th. Definitely doable if I get and stay focused, right? We're wrapping up the 5% challenge this weekend (yay, Firecrackers!) and this challenge should help me stay motivated, along with ongoing Fitibit challenges. I'll also join the In-Between challenge but I need something a bit more, well, CHALLENGING.
I have another trip coming up the first week of July and will actually be returning home on the 5th. But I'll be home the whole month of June and should be able to stick to a solid routine. Who knows, I might even start tracking again! Or going to the gym?!

Interested in joining me? Let me know. Not sure how I would set things up, maybe just continue to blog here every Saturday as I have been.

    A very doable goal for you. I know you are determined so no doubt that it is achievable. I am leaving for a long trip so my goal is to not gain 5 pounds while away! If I can get my hip straightened out and increase my walking I have a good chance.
    I am ready to cheer you on!

    I love it, but probably can't join you. I'm supposed to be maintaining. So far I'm not doing to well at maintaining - I've lost almost another 10 pounds since I hit my goal weight, and Rich says I look "fragile". I need to figure out the right balance of exercise and food. I had to reduce my exercise this week to take care of Scout, so I'll see what happens with that activity adjustment.

    Sorry I can't join you - it would be nice and so much easier to do it with someone. But we have 2 trips scheduled for June plus a wedding so I will be happy not To gain 5 pounds. Good luck though.
