Not Speedy

Welcome to my Spark page.

Looking forward to a good fall challenge.

Took off a few pounds in the summer challenge and then put them back on plus more. I got tired of watching what I ate so I ate what I wanted to. Slowing down as I get older and can't exercise like I use to. Having a hard time adjusting to that.

Determined to do what I can during this challenge.

Welcome to my Spark page.

Looking forward to a good fall challenge.

Took off a few pounds in the summer challenge and then put them back on plus more. I got tired of watching what I ate so I ate what I wanted to. Slowing down as I get older and can't exercise like I use to. Having a hard time adjusting to that.

Determined to do what I can during this challenge.

2016 Winter 5% Challenge Commitment

Walk Mon - Sat for at least 20+ minutes
Strength Training 2x a week - need to be consistent with this.
Post food
Drink 6 glasses water daily
Build up strength for trip to Nicaragua in April.



Motivation for Summer 5% Challenge
Dr. said I had to eat healthy, loose weight, and exercise more.
Exercise will give me more energy and I won't have to take a nap every day.
Want to live an active life.
Exercise also give me a positive outlook.
Want to fit back into clothes that I bought last year.

Goals for Spring 5% Challenge:
1. To get back on track and stop putting back on weight that I had lost.
2. To stay within 1200 - 1600 calories.
3. Strength training 1x a week.
4. Increase cardio to 20 min 6 days.
5. Focus on one day at a time.
6. Focus on the positive.
7. I CAN do this.

Winters are difficult for me. I have SAD and my body craves sunlight.
I need the Winter 5% Challenge to keep me motivated and responsible to my teammates.

Goals for Winter 5% Challenge:
1.Track my food and have 1200. to 1500 calories 6 days a week.
2. Do at least 10 minutes cardio 5x a week.
3. Strength training 2 days per week.
4. Weigh in and post my weight weekly
5. Support fellow members.
6. Love myself even when I mess up!

Every pound that is lost takes four pounds of pressure off of the joints.

A key to a healthy lifestyle is moderation, and moderation means setting limits, applying portion control, and making choices based on long-term health goals, not immediate gratification. I have to work on the �not immediate gratification� part. That is what I want for my life. Slow and steady wins the race and I am a winner.
