You can be the hammer, making things happen, or you can be the nail that sits there and gets pummeled over and over. It's time to start being the hammer.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Each week we will be having a new themed challenge to help keep us on track and excited about our summer goals. This week's challenge will be the Summer kickoff! Beginning on Saturday 5/5 follow along with us and the rest of the team by completing the "letters" below. Each day has a different letter with 3 challenges: one for nutrition, one for fitness and one for community.
For each challenge you complete on each letter, take 10 points (for a total of 30 points per day). At the end of the week, I will tally the scores and the winner will get a very special, highly coveted goodie prize from the team.
Keep track by posting 1 time and editing your post throughout the week. Good luck and happy summer!

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

You're on!

Day

Sat. 05-05 30 points -- healthy breakfast, squats (modified for my knee replacement needs), made at least one blog comment WooHoo!

Sun. 05-06 30 points -- ate in calorie range, did treadmill (but increased slope -- rained out all day), blogged (like a good girl! LOL)

Mon. 05-07 30 points -- ate kale! (yummo), walk 32,000 steps/day/treadmill (increased the incline), leg/core/weights summer healthy fitness plan: bike 3day/week, gardening, will be traveling to son's graduation in July (HOOZA!!!!) and made SURE the hotel room had a microwave (to cook some of my own food!), and a work out room w/treadmill -- scored on both of these counts! WOO HOOOoo. Bring it on. Will be able to spend a family day w/John (DS) the day before graduation, so plan on taking a hike around HUGE Ft. Leonard Wood where he's training. That oughta rack up a few miles! Posted a smiiley on a blog!!

Tues. 05-08 30 points -- eat only @ table (this has been a long standing habit with me and it works! already got the 45 min. of cardio under my belt! Took Mr. Spot (the Wonder Dog) for a walk and then jumped on the treadmill. Woot. As far as my goals, well pretty simple for me @ this point. I am in maintenance. My goals are to continue to weigh/measure/pay attention to portion sizes, do ST and cardio so my weight maintains. Need to get at least 9 glasses of water in, because I get dehydrated easily. Energy goal: pretty much the same situation -- mantain. I am very happy with my energy lever (scale of 1-5, I'm a 5.5!)

Wed. 05-09 30 points -- made eggs-n-oats (RACHEL_MAC's recipe) . . . delish! Jumped on the treadmill -- as always, did my stretches afterwards, and then grocery shopped and took Mr. Spot for a walk. Got my 8 hrs. beauty rest in . . . well, sleep . . . don't know about the beauty part! LOL

Thur. 05-10 30 points -- 9 glasses of water, 30 min. strength training, blogged re: the progress seen during this challenge

Fri. 05-11 30 points -- healthy breakfast, eat only @ table, 9 glasses of water (any extra points for # of bathroom visits/?) LOL

Sunday 5/6: 30 points today. :)

Monday 5/7: 30 today. I highly recommend celery root, my new freggie friend!

Tuesday 5/8: 20 points. I haven't eaten at the table in months, since we don't have planned food times, it has never really occurred to me. I think this is a problem for a lot of students.

Wednesday 5/9: 30 points! I tried zucchini pizza, but the result was less than satisfying. :(

Thursday 5/10: 10 points. Had a really sleepy day, so I didn't do the strength OR the blog.

Friday 5/11: 30 points, got my 8 cups of water, 8 hours of sleep, and tried another new freggie - jicama is definitely my new best friend!

Each week we will be having a new themed challenge to help keep us on track and excited about our summer goals. This week's challenge will be the Summer kickoff! Beginning on Saturday 5/5 follow along with us and the rest of the team by completing the "letters" below. Each day has a different letter with 3 challenges: one for nutrition, one for fitness and one for community.
For each challenge you complete on each letter, take 10 points (for a total of 30 points per day). At the end of the week, I will tally the scores and the winner will get a very special, highly coveted goodie prize from the team.
Keep track by posting 1 time and editing your post throughout the week. Good luck and happy summer!
