Team Challenge Blog
Monday, March 01, 2010
Our daily challenge for the "40 somethings with 50-99 pounds to lose" goal is to write a blog with a few small goals I would like to accomplish this month, and to list 5 things that motivate me to reach these goals. So here goes.
This month I will be tracking my nutrition and fitness on the spark website everyday, eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables everyday, which will have me checking into the site everyday too. I also want to weigh less than my husband by the end of the month.
One of the things that motivates me is I try to keep within the range of calories that SparkPeople has set for me. This requires me to try and get my data entered throughout the day to make sure I've got enough left for dinner.
I have been wanting to get back into a regular fitness routine and by tracking it I will be more likely to do it because I feel obligated. I also just bought a recumbent excercise bike and I don't like to waste money so it will get used!
My pants have been so tight lately - Motivation (didn't see a emoticon for this)
Seeing and reading about how others are doing is motivating to me, and SparkPeople has been providing that for me. This will keep me coming back for more.
And last, but not least the Spark book is motivating me. I am trying to take my time reading it so I can absorb and reflect. I like to read this type of book every now and then to help me better myself.
