Walking By Faith

I took a bit of a break from Spark because my schedule just was not allowing me any time to be here. The resulting weight gain has me running back to SparkLand with the hope that I can jump back on the wagon and get back into some healthy habits. I'm gonna need my SparkFriends!

Personal Information:
I live in southeast Michigan.

I want to live a healthy lifestyle so I can be active with my kids and teach them healthy living skills.

I work a a very full-time job as a director of religious education and youth minister. But I have the bonus of extra time off during the summer with my kids!

My 5% exercise Commitment: For the Fall 5% Challenge I will do at least 30 minutes of cardio 6/7 days a week. I will also do strength training at least 2/7 days a week.

Note to self: Make it easier on yourself- get it done in the morning!

My 5% Nutrition Commitment: I would like to start with regular menu planning, and work my way to tracking on Spark regularly, and be within range on most days by the end of the 8 weeks.

Mini-challenge for you: "TIDY UP"

Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day .... to straighten up something, whether it be your desk, a cluttered table, junk drawer, or the kitchen counter. Return items to their rightful places, recycle, and put papers you need to go through in a folder for later.

A chaotic or disorganized space makes everyday tasks seem harder because you feel like you're always running behind. Cleaning up even one small physical space can help clear mental space, allowing you to be more efficient the rest of the day.

Your mini-challenge ... There are 3 Important Things to Remember this week:

Every good thing you do for yourself is a step toward good health ... whether it is moving more, getting more sleep, or eating clean.

Don't get caught up in the "all-or-noting" mentality trap. Ten minutes here & there really DOES add up, and IS better than nothing.

Set reasonable, small goals. And then when you have achieved them, set another small goal .... and continue on your health journey.

Little mini-challenge for you this week:

"Go Faster, Go Longer, Go Harder, or Do More.” In other words, speed up your workout, workout longer, push yourself harder, go further, or do more reps. Whether you are walking, biking, swimming,or strength training . . . whatever exercise you choose to do this week, do it with more intensity.

Push yourself just a little more ... to see just a little more result. A little goes a long way! emoticon emoticon
