My name is Ute, I live in Upstate New York with my husband, my two dogs and a cockatiel. Our twin girls are finishing up their college diplomas, one in NYC, the other lives in the area. I have been a Spark Member since 2006 and always enjoy the support from my fellow Sparkers. My main focus is to use the tools here to help me lose the excess weight that might lead to health problems down the road, and take pressure off my knees. After successfully completing several 5 % Challenges, and making wonderful new friends, I am returning to the Shooting Star team for the 2016 Spring 5% Challenge. This will be my first time as a Motivational Leader (ML).


2016 Spring 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment

Strength Training:
Body Weight Exercises, light dumbells, rubber bands
Minimum 10 minutes, 3 days per week.
Sources: Deck of Cards Workout, 1 Minute Crunch Sessions

Cardio:
Minimum 30 minutes 5 days a week
Deck of Cards Workout, 1 Minute Crunch Sessions, Walking outdoors, Youtube: Step Aerobics Videos, Zumba Workout DVD's, Chair Workout Videos on days my knees are acting up.

What will I eat?
Simple.... I love to eat, and I have been my most successful by just tracking everything I eat daily, sometimes before, sometimes after. I incorporate everything I love into my meals and snacks, since I will be changing my habits for the rest of my life, not just for a few weeks. It has to be attainable and realistic.

Ute, But what happens when this challenge is over in May? Will there be another trip? Having to be accountable to others has really helped.
