  • 5% Challenge - Loving the Challenge of Exercise Minutes

    5/26/2018 7:34:21 PM, by BONNIE1552

    The 5% Challenge Team is really encouraging me to get in my exercise minutes. I'm so impressed with how many of the team get in 120 minutes a day. I tried to get that much in, but I was done before the end of the day and just too tired. So.........I'm increasing it as much as possible but within rea... Read more

  • If You Have The Courage To Begin.......

    5/23/2018 10:17:55 AM, by BONNIE1552

    I came across this inspirational quote yesterday. It spoke to me then. It still speaks to me now. For some reason the idea of just beginning really resonated deep inside me. So what did I do with it? I got up from the computer and did some SP challenge workouts. Then early this morning I made ... Read more

    5/18/2018 7:38:53 AM, by BONNIE1552

    Definitely, I will attempt to conquer!!! There are many things that in this past year that I've had to conquer and still am working on. One of them happens today - garbage day. I'm sure you're thinking, whhhaaat???? Let me just say that I live on a large, fairy steep hill. There have... Read more

  • Doing the Very Thing I Can Not Do

    5/16/2018 7:59:33 AM, by BONNIE1552

    One very important thing that I conquered the last couple of days is driving to my younger daughter's house. Now, I realize that doesn't sound very BIG. But for me, it's HUGE. When my husband died just over a year ago, I found myself alone and only able to drive locally. Anxiety issues over the year... Read more

  • Surprise - It's Yoga

    5/9/2018 11:44:41 PM, by BONNIE1552

    Went to a gym class expecting weights. They changed the class to an hour yoga - easy yoga, I might add. I actually did the class and got more squats and lunges that I'd bargained for. Guess my lower body may remind me of that tomorrow.... Read more

  • To Pilates or Not To Pilates

    5/8/2018 8:54:56 PM, by BONNIE1552

    I have to admit that I've been resistant to trying the Pilates workouts here on SP. Honestly, some of it might be that I resist getting down on the floor. Yes, I bought a mat, but just saying.....I definitely prefer exercises that can be done standing or sitting. Then......I really looked at my... Read more

  • Binge From Nowhere

    5/7/2018 9:22:20 PM, by BONNIE1552

    I was completely surprised by a binge that struck from out of nowhere today. I had a low sugar day going, went to the gym, did lots of other workouts. Yes, I'm still down and still grieving, but just wasn't expecting this one. Staying on track and working out usually keeps my mind occupied. I h... Read more

  • Tighten That Ponytail

    5/6/2018 6:24:32 PM, by BONNIE1552

    Not that I have hair long enough to pull back into a ponytail - but I get it. I can picture it in my mind. Can you? It's that get ready, I'm about to get serious mentality needed to get the workout done. So I guess I need to tighten my imaginary ponytail and get serious to get the job don... Read more

  • On Becoming A Water Drinker

    5/4/2018 7:49:06 PM, by BONNIE1552

    When I first started specific challenges rewarding team members with points for getting in all their water, I struggled to get in 4 - 6 glasses per day. With all the diet soda I was drinking, I didn't have much room for water. Weeks later, I'm getting it in most every day. Heck, I even go... Read more

  • Believe You Can Do It

    5/3/2018 9:06:00 PM, by BONNIE1552

    Believing is half the battle - maybe even 90% of it. Have a great day! You CAN do this!... Read more

  • Can't Believe I Miss My 50/50 Spring Mix & Baby Spinach Blend

    5/2/2018 3:38:17 PM, by BONNIE1552

    Who would think that on a day when chocolate is safe to eat I would be missing my salad mix. That doesn't even sound like me. Never. I guess it's true that we sometimes want what we can't have. Does anyone know when the advisory on romaine will be lifted?... Read more

  • Just a Smiley Face for You Today - What's Your Why?

    5/1/2018 9:34:07 PM, by BONNIE1552

    My smiley face is because I actually got on the treadmill and walked for over a mile :) It's because I did about 33 minutes of strength training. It's because I got in my water. What's your why?... Read more
