I started my day with a healthy Post Shreddies cereal and a half serving of protein sport chocolate milk with a banana. Then I worked out in the yard for 4 hrs. today cutting down hedges and burning them and cleaning out the flowerbeds. I was hurting and my husband had to come and take the rake away from me. After a piece of Hawaiian pizza I did my Bikini workout. Then I made myself dinner of 1/4 cup organic sprouted rice with quinoa blend, avocado and tomato with basil pesto and 50 g of Parmesan chicken. The Parmesan was lightly sprinkled on the chicken after it was plated. I still have a protein bar and a fig fruit bar yet to eat to round out my daily tracked meals. I am 2 water short of my 8 glasses but I have an hour yet to go before trying to sleep. Sleeping is my biggest issue because no matter how much I do every day I keep waking up every two hours and have a hard time going back to sleep for the next two hours or more. Sometimes that's when I will get my crochet out and do a little till I feel sleepy.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

April 27th - 29th: Walked (1 hour, 30 minutes, 30 minutes (respectively))

Diet: Great on the 27th and 28th. I ate a TON of sweets today. Actually had no real food. Only snacks :-(. I will do better tomorrow.

Sorry for not keeping up with posts. It's the last week of classes.

It's not easy doing the exercises every day but last week I only missed one day. I am alternating between walking 3 km. and doing the Bikini Workout. My goal is to be able to do the Bikini Workout every day but for now it's just too much. Nutritionally I am not doing as well now that I'm at the end of the month and food is getting low. Payday I will be able to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables again but for now I am using frozen or canned which I really don't like and save for when all the fresh is gone. I eat a lot of legumes and rice and have cut back to only sparingly using stew meat, hamburger meat or chicken as a flavor enhancement. One day I hope to find I have learned to eat so that I can eliminate the meat altogether but for now I am taking baby steps. Developing the legume and rice recipes that I like enough to eat often is the first step.

You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self.

I am trying to keep myself focused on the nutrition and the exercise. Sometimes I can only due the minimum but i have not missed a day of exercise yet in two months, even if it is only a 15 minute walk.

SPICING THINGS UP

One of our team members came up with a great idea that I'm excited to share! During this phase of the challenge, let your page status be "Comment/Like my status and I will do _____". You may fill in your blank with the following:

1) Drink 1 cup of water
2) Do 10 push ups
3) Do 5 lunges
4) Walk 1 mile
...

It's up to you! Whatever you feel that you are able to accomplish, make that your status. It's completely flexible, so if you choose to do those miles over the 20 day period, or per week or day, it's completely up to you! But this is an AWESOME way to get everyone involved and aware!!

Below is the outline of Phase Two. Again, each phase will have its own forum. You should aim to post within this form at least once per week.

PHASE TWO

* Nutritious Eating (Diet)

Outline is a bit more specific for this phase. You are to ensure that you get:
- AT LEAST 2 SERVINGS OF FRUITS/VEGETABLES EACH DAY
- AT LEAST 24 OUNCES OF WATER EACH DAY
- LIMIT (OR ELIMINATE) RED MEAT CONSUMPTION
- REDUCE (OR ELIMINATE) PROCESSED SWEETS (COOKIES, CAKES, ETC)

Basic requirements: Allow yourself no more than 3 cheat days during this 20 day period.

* Full Body Conditioning

Aim to workout between 3 and 5 days each week.

- AT LEAST 2 STRENGTH SESSIONS LASTING AT LEAST 20 MINUTES
- AT LEAST 3 CARDIO SESSIONS LASTING AT LEAST 20 MINUTES

Cardio exercises are exercises that raise your heart rate, while strength exercises increase muscular strength through some type of resistance. Use a combination of these exercises to get your body to a healthier state!

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTIONS:

- AT LEAST 2 MILES A WEEK (WALKING OR RUNNING, AND NOT NECESSARILY ALL AT ONCE)

- ALTERNATE BETWEEN MACHINE EXERCISES AND NON-MACHINE EXERCISES

During this phase, I will send out/post exercise suggestions as well as some links to healthier meal plans.

(Note: I am not a trained health/fitness professional. All fitness/diet plans are suggestions that have worked for me, family and friends, and many others. You should always complete any plan within your own abilities while remaining safe. Use your own judgement. However, you should still gently push yourself past comfort level.)

Anna, **God Strengthens Me**
