New Day, New Blessings. I cannot let what happened yesterday ruin the beautiful things that will happen today. I take each morning as a new blessing of life. Being thankful for another chance to embrace this wonderful life that God has given me.

Remember the BUTTERFLY...While in the cocoon, a beautiful TRANSFORMATION is occurring. We are to be that butterfly.

Motivational Quotes:

Do not give up on yourself.

Today is a good day, make it happen.

My Goals:
Update 4/2017
I want to lose 8.8 lbs by the end of 2017 Spring 5% Challenge
I want to track my food daily
I want to do at least 10 minutes of exercise daily
I want to drink 6-8 glasses of water daily

I will use a reward system when I reach daily and short term goals:
$2 for every lb lost
$1 for every inch lost
$.25 for every 4000 steps each day
$.25 for staying within my calorie range each day
$.25 for stretches done each day
$.25 for drinking 6+ glasses of water each day

I will lose 8.9 lbs by the end of this 5% Winter challenge.
I will prepare more meals at home
I will drink 6-8 glasses of water daily
I will use portion control
I will track food daily

With 15+ minutes daily exercise (from fitness plan), and eating between 1,238 - 1,608 calories a day, I will lose 8.9 pounds in 8 weeks.

My Program:
Update 4/2017
I will be using a low calorie, low sodium eating plan
I will use the flexitarian program plan for eating

The program that I will be following is low sodium due to my hypertension. I will be using the trackers from SparkPeople. I also plan to do more plant-based meals than I have in the past.

I plan to exercise using chair exercises right now because I have an acute sciatic nerve problem in my left leg. I also plan to do stretches to help with the pain. Until this pain subsides I am going to get at least 2500+ steps per day. As I get stronger and feeling better I will increase my activity.
