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.

Little mini-challenge for you: Try an Interval Walk or two this week (or adapt it whatever your cardio preference is). Exercise as fast as your can for just 30 seconds, followed by 1 minute at a steady, recovery pace, then repeat as many times as time permits. This type of "interval workout" intensifies your workout, so you don't have dedicate that much of your day to working out, but you still get the same benefits (if not more, because HITT workouts are a excellent addition to your workout regimen).

Little tid-bits (food for thought this week):

When you're having a good time exercising, it blocks out the unpleasant feelings that can be associated with the term "working out." If you do a heart-pumping activity "that makes you smile," you'll be more likely to stick with it. If you see exercise as an enjoyable part of life, you'll do more of it . . . and get more feel-good benefits from it. Find your passion!
