Welcome to my Spark page.

Looking forward to a good summer.

2015 Spring 5% Challenge Commitment

Walk Mon and Fri for 30+ minutes
Walk Wed and Thurs for 10+ minutes
Strength Training Tues and Sat 10 minutes
Drink 6 glasses water daily
Get back on track.



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.

We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson

Have a SParkling week.

It's easy to lose focus on your goal when you experience bad emotions and feel like it makes no sense to go on longer. before you make the final decision, ask your self a few questions... like

1. Would you be happy if you gave up and your life remained the same?
Sometimes all it takes to keep going is to remind yourself of the end goal.

2. What's the worst that can happen if you keep going and don't achieve your goal?
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said: "Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

Even if you do not achieve your goal, the person you had become when striving to reach it was probably more than worth it.

3. How would it feel to tell other people why you gave up?
Would you be happy telling your friend you gave up because you prefer watching TV to becoming a healthier person?

4. What would you tell your cloest friend if you traded places with her?
Would you tell her to throw in the towel or motivate her to keep pushing...try something different to reach her goals...

Keep pushing and
Never give up!
