Day 1 Cats 5% Fall Challenge

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Think I'd better blog before I get so tired and blurry eyed that I won't know what I am saying.

Today is the start of the 5% Fall challenge. With having been gone most of the day I was still able to count the walking I did for my exercise. I was home long enough that I was able to blog and also post on some team members blogs. So with that I was able to help out my team.

My goal for this challenge is to work on that 5% weigh in challenge, which for me is 9#. It does come off very slowly. So my immediate goal is to get below 170. I want to get back into the 160's. That would only be about 5#.

I will continue to post my food and stay in range on my nutrition page. I will be better about getting my water. I have been struggling in both of these areas lately.

I need to improve on getting my exercise more consistently. This has always been a challenge for me. I love it when I do my strength exercises. I love doing yoga and do it regularly with a group on Wed. I want to get back to doing it daily .

I need lots of Kudos and support and encouragement. Things have been pretty stressful for me lately. So I know I need to take care of myself. How to do that is always a challenge.

Good luck to all my fellow cats and anyone else on this Spark journey.

    Sounds like a great plan Marilyn - I have confidence in you and am sure you can at least get back in the 170's. If I lived closer I'd walk with you every day!! Good luck -

    Hope the challenge goes well for you Marilyn!! I know things have been stressful for you lately and you're right - you DO need to take care of YOU as well! I seem to do much better with losing weight when I make a real effort with the strength challenges, too! GOOD LUCK!!

    Keeping track of your food, staying in range AND drinking 8 cups of water is the way to go on this challenge. Add to it daily exercise and your goal of dropping 9lbs will be accomplished. I know emoticon if you put your mind to it.You're emoticon

    I wish you luck.....though as you well know it takes much more than that. We've all been there and we know how hard it it is, but if we are firmly committed and I feel we both are this time around, we will do it.

    Good luck on the challenge..... emoticon emoticon

    emoticon The Butterflies are flying high, and I look forward to being being in the challenge with you....I had such fun last time that I just had to come back for more. :)
