SPRING 5% CHALLENGE.

Can I "keep on keepin' on," maintain my 50 pound weight loss, and get to Onederland?

I'm starting this 8 week challenge not-feeling-well physically and feeling STRESSED emotionally and mentally.

I don't feel "fierce" (sorry Tiger Monarchs). I feel a bit fragile.

But I do WANT to continue this journey of sparking towards better health and happiness. I want to treat myself with gentleness and encouragement and trust ...
SPRING 5% CHALLENGE.

Can I "keep on keepin' on," maintain my 50 pound weight loss, and get to Onederland?

I'm starting this 8 week challenge not-feeling-well physically and feeling STRESSED emotionally and mentally.

I don't feel "fierce" (sorry Tiger Monarchs). I feel a bit fragile.

But I do WANT to continue this journey of sparking towards better health and happiness. I want to treat myself with gentleness and encouragement and trust that two steps forward and one step back is OK.

Goals for the next 8 weeks:

I will sit and breathe for at least a few minutes most days.
I will log in to sparkpeople.com every day.
I will do the weekly challenges to the best of my ability.
I will have healthy food available at work so I can be sure to eat something good-for-me every three or four hours.
I will exercise 50 minutes/day, five days/week -- walking and stretching.
I will get to the Y at least once a week.
I will get up from my desk and MOVE throughout the day at work.
I will get down on the floor and get up at least once a day.
I will DO one of my many, many exercise/fitness videos I have and POST about it.

My Goals:
I want to not-go-back to my old ways. I want to eat healthy and exercise regularly.

My Program:
Diet Plan for the 5% Spring Challenge:
I will eat breakfast, and something healthy every 3-4 hours.
I will mindfully choose my afterwork/tv-viewing snack. I will limit salt-bad fats-and sugars.


Fitness Plan for 5% Winter Challenge:
I will GET UP and MOVE every 30-60 minutes at work...walk for at least 20 minutes/day... and stretch for 30-minutes each evening.
At least once a week I will get to the Y for the weights or the pool or do one of my exercise videos.

Personal Information:
I am in my fifties...and still figuring out who I am.

I have a good life and its getting better.

I still have a long way to go...and I'm still afraid of not-changing my life/my health the way I want to.

I am a minister and it is "embarrassing" to not-have-my-act-together.

I have long felt that John 10:10 was "my" Bible verse -- "I came that you might have life, life to the full."

I want to live a full life!

Other Information:
"Living healthy is hard.
Exercising is hard.
Losing weight is hard.
Being overweight is hard.
Being sick is hard.
Which 'hard' do you choose?"
