I have enjoyed participating in the 5% challenge. Each time I become stronger, and it is easier for me pass up a yummy treat that I love to eat. I say pass up, because I am not going to give it up. I know what I like, but I also know that I don't need it, I just want it. If I feel like I am to big for my britches, then I am going to either have to pass up that treat or deal with the uncomfortable overlap. I really do not like overlap.

I have not made a personal challenge for April. I believe I will just have a rest as long as I get in at least 60 to 120 minutes of exercise, either walking, cardio, lift, yard work or heaving cleaning. April is my month to regroup.

I didn't think that issues of the heart (emotions) could knock me down, but they did and now I am regrouping and will be make my come back in my own sweet time. I am shooting for May.

A mud run sounds like so much fun!!. In September, there is a 5K on one of the runways at O'Hare Field. I can't imagine what that would feel like. I'm going to have to talk my friend into joining me. Let me know how the mud run goes. Good for you!!!

Little mini-challenge for you this week . . . Try this somewhat "challenging exercise" whenever you visit your homepage:

Put your fists up, shift your weight from side-to-side, while in a semi-squat. Alternating your body weight from side-to-side while moving down & up (squatting in a “U” shape) is a great way to strengthen the muscles of your inner & outer thighs—while getting your heart rate up a little. Add a little speed (and perhaps a punch) & watch your heart rate climb!

GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon
