We are through the third of the 5-day challenges. It is time for a building block evaluation.

Step 1:
Re-visit your current 5-day goal. Are you meeting your goal daily? Do you feel like you have a handle on this goal to continue meeting it each day without a specific focus on it? In other words - is it becoming a habit or a normal part of your daily routine?

Step 2:
After making your evaluation, determine if you feel that you need to stick to this goal for another 5 days or if you are ready to add a second building block to your daily routine. If you want to stick with your original goal, then you are all set for the next five days and continue on as you currently are - earning your daily blocks.

Step 3:
If you are ready for the next goal on your list, then post your new goal for the fourth 5 day challenge. Completing this new goal each day will earn you an alphabet block. However, keep up your other goal(s). Remember that we are working on adding building blocks for healthy living, not replacing them.


FUN WITH OUR BLOCKS
Time to play with our letters again. To earn a special goodie, use the letters you have earned to create a word that gives you motivation to keep going and adding those blocks every day!

Studies repeatedly show that "NOW" is the best time of the day for you to start that healthier diet.

I'm catching up with my trackers

I've fallen apart this week and haven't gotten to bed as early as I'm wanting. It is still earlier than I use to, but not meeting my midnight goal during the work week. I also have been blowing off my tracking again so I guess that I wasn't as strong with that as I wanted to be. I'm going to renew my committments and plow ahead. I earned my block for last night. :o)

emoticon Not over easy and not too hard... sunny side up!

ABC... I gave myself a letter for Wednesday because I tracked every bite. This is the skill I'm really working on. I didn't meet my goal of staying at 1,800 calories. I did eat a very light dinner and had only one evening snack after eating a huge lunch at a Mexican restaurant.

I honestly tried to track accurately, but the restaurant's webpage did not have calorie counts. I used SP nutrition tracker and choose items with the same name. I really wanted to plan ahead, but ended up ordering my favorite (one last time.) Famous last words.

That is a very good point Dee. These 5 day goals should be something that pushes you to do something you currently aren't, but also is attainable. Good goal setting should not set you up for failure. We are motivated by reaching our goals -- completing the tasks we give ourselves. Those of you that are putting stickers in your journals or adding money to your jars -- how good does it feel when you choose your sticker? Is it fun picking out one that matches how you feel about your accomplishment? How much fun do you think Brenda had in Vegas with her reward money?

You have started learning about what you are currently doing and then taking that baseline to set reasonable, attainable goals.

I have a bookmark in my journal that reads: "Reach for the moon, because if you don't make it you'll land among the stars.

emoticon The ABC Challenge

Week 3 Goal... Track every bite. My goal is to reduce from an average of 2,000 calories a day to 1,800 calories.

emoticon I have to admit that I've changed my second sentence three times now. First I had the word "try" in there, but I wanted to be more committed. Then I made it "my goal" but worried about failing. Changed it to "aim for" but that didn't sound positive enough. So I went back to goal.

A -- 6/05 Tracked one meal.
B -- 6/03 Tracked one meal.
C -- 6/13 Tracked every bite. (2,006)
D -- 6/01 Tracked one meal.
E -- 6/02 Tracked one meal.
F -- 6/14 Tracked every bite. (2,259)
G -- 6/12 Tracked every bite. (2,140)

I'm going to have to catch up in the mornning. I'm already running late tonight so no letter block for me.

My last goal was to go to bed earlier than I did the night before until I was consistantly in bed by midnight at the latest.

I have improved on this, but I don't feel like I'm in a routine with it yet. Also my tracking has slouched the past few days. Had great intentions tonight buy hubby's insurnace guy showed up unannounced at 8:30 and we didn't finish with him until 11:30. So now it is already after midnight. So for the third 5 day challenge, I'm going to stick with my current goal.

emoticon Step One -- Re-visit your current 5 day goal.

I started week one with the goal of tracking one meal. emoticon

Week two I bumped it up to two meals. emoticon
Even though my goal required me to track only two meals, I actually tracked all my food every day.

emoticon Step Two -- After making my evaluation, I've discovered that tracking isn't the huge pain in the side that I make it out to be. I can do it. As always, it's a matter of deciding that I want to do it.

A few things I've learned from tracking are: I'm eating 2,000 calories a day and it's the snacking that's really hurting my efforts.

emoticon Step Three -- Building on to my first blocks. My new goal will be to track all my food -- every bite. Look for ways to snack smarter. Average 1,800 calories a day as a goal.

I've met my goal for all 10 days so I have a lot of letters to use! Like Randy, I've had a bit of fun with my ABC blocks.

Waist -- I need to eat healthy and exercise to earn a smaller one.
Diets -- don't work. I'm creating a healthy life style.
Sweat -- It's good for me. Move every day.
Time -- there's no rush. Just keep trying.
Be -- Be who I want to be.
Swim -- a fun way to exercise. Easy on the joints.
Date -- a date with destiny. Create the life I want to be living!

Step 1:
Re-visit your current 5-day goal.

emoticon Didn't do well the last 2 days regarding the no diet pop (or today)-- but at the same time will continue drinking 10-12 glasses of H20. My first goal is going fair -- that was getting to the gym before work. MIssed yesterday but overall doing ok with that goal

Step 2:
After making your evaluation,

emoticon

Not continuing right now with the no diet pop -- but will remain focused on water.

Step 3:
If you are ready for the next goal on your list....................

emoticon I'm moving to another goal -- tracking all food for the next five days --- SP log or paper log and then combine them if nothing else.

FUN WITH OUR BLOCKS: A C E H N R Y

Hare (popped out first) and thought like the tortoise and the hare
Hen (eat more chicken)
reach (goals)
race
ran
yeah (goes with reaching those goals) or ah ha days
care (so much caring and support here at SP with our journey
ache (sometimes comes with the work
earn (those points - goodies etc)
Ace (wrap for those sprains and aches)

10 :) might have stretched it a little but it did say FUN with blocks

Could fit Henry in as a health related goal

You have made it through the second of the 5-day challenges. It is time for a building block evaluation.

Step 1:
Re-visit your current 5-day goal. Are you meeting your goal daily? Do you feel like you have a handle on this goal to continue meeting it each day without a specific focus on it? In other words - is it becoming a habit or a normal part of your daily routine?

Step 2:
After making your evaluation, determine if you feel that you need to stick to this goal for another 5 days or if you are ready to add a second building block to your daily routine. If you want to stick with your original goal, then you are all set for the next five days and continue on as you currently are - earning your daily blocks.

Step 3:
If you are ready for the next goal on your list, then post your new goal for the third 5 day challenge. Completing this new goal each day will earn you an alphabet block. However, keep up your other goal(s). Remember that we are working on adding building blocks for healthy living, not replacing them.


FUN WITH OUR BLOCKS
Time to play with our letters again. To earn a special goodie, use the letters you have earned to create a word that can relate to a healthy lifestyle like orange or disco or water, etc.



Studies repeatedly show that "NOW" is the best time of the day for you to start that healthier diet.

My first specific goal was to take my medications everyday and insulin with every meal. I was 4 for 5, then didn't check in until tonight. So, I'm setting my next goal for the next five days as: eat one fruit with each meal, plus take my meds & insulin with every meal.

I'm glad your back is healing. I'm sorry the Wellness Class didn't excite you. Hopefully, you'll relate better to the coach.
emoticon

I've tracked all my food for the past 4 days. I discovered that I'm consistently eating a little over 2,000 calories. Good news/Bad news: I thought my weekend eating was a lot higher than it actually is, but 2,000 is over my range if I want to lose and not gain weight.
emoticon I can fix this.

Good morning everyone!!! Last day of our 2nd five day challenges. My back is still hurting, but nothing like it was over the weekend. I have another busy day of work today and a client in so I won't be on much.

I didn't track my food over the weekend on SP, however, I did write everything down in my journal so I'm hoping that I can get caught up in the next couple of days. I am working on my sleep and was in bed by midnight last night so I'm making progress on that goal.

I had my first wellness class on Friday. Not as thrilled with this one. Wasn't so much the material as it was how they were teaching it. I'm starting back with a few weeks of wellness coaching next week. I hope that it will be better than the class. Well, better get started with my workday. Be back on when I can.

I tracked everything I ate on Friday. The total calories were 2,162. Over what I need to eat to fuel my body and lose weight. At least, I know where I'm starting from and can set a goal to cut back.

I know that I have the advantage since I make up the challenges, but my words include:

Rest
Ate
Tear
Star
Seat
Rate

I'm sure there are more, but this will do.

I have logged my food every day of this challenge and determined my fiber count, so I will continue to do this and add a second goal for the next five days.

My goal is to go to bed earlier than the day before until I'm consistantly in bed by midnight or earlier. Last night it was 1:30. It is now 20 after midnight so I better wrap up quick.

I got started late and tracking all of my food is still a struggle. My numbers are crap, but my goal right now is to track everything that goes in my mouth no matter how bad the numbers. This weekend i will be menu planning and shopping so next weeks numbers should be better. I am sticking with tracking every blasted thing I put in my mouth.

You have made it through the first of the 5-day challenges. It is time for a building block evaluation.

Step 1:
Re-visit your current 5-day goal. Are you meeting your goal daily? Do you feel like you have a handle on this goal to continue meeting it each day without a specific focus on it? In other words - is it becoming a habit or a normal part of your daily routine?

emoticon I did fair. Missed one day out of 3 getting to the gym before work. I will continue to use my commitment to a couple friends at the gym to keep pushing myself out of the bed. Getting to the gym helps me so much -- physically and emotionally for the day.

Step 2:
After making your evaluation, determine if you feel that you need to stick to this goal for another 5 days or if you are ready to add a second building block to your daily routine. If you want to stick with your original goal, then you are all set for the next five days and continue on as you currently are - earning your daily blocks.

emoticon ready for a 2nd goal

Step 3:
If you are ready for a second goal, then post your new goal and completing this new goal each day will earn you an alphabet block. However, even though you wll no longer earn a block for it, continue to meet your original goal. Remember that we are working on adding building blocks for healthy living, not replacing them.

emoticon my next goal will be no diet pop for 5 days -- no excuses and 10+ waters
when I'm not drinking pop -- the waters just seem to happen

I hope you have been choosing a variety of blocks. Take a look at the letters you have earned from June 1st through the 5th. Try to make words out of your letters. Anyone who can make at least 2 words that have three or more letters in them will win a special goodie. Post your words here.

A; N; R:

Only 1 ...3-letter word (RAN)
and 1 ....2-letter word (AN)

I will edit my post for today to remove my letter for the gym. And add it tonight at check-in time.
