Day 1 of the Fall 5% Challenge

Saturday, September 24, 2011

emoticon I'm excited to get started. I've weighed in, measured and now it begins. I ran 2.5 miles and walked 1 mile in the rain this morning. I know what to do, but you never know if it will actually yield the desired results, so I'm a little scared too, I must admit.

Oh well, what's the worse that can happen if I exercise 60 minutes daily and track my meals closely to stay within my ranges and I don't lose a lb.--at least I'll be the healthiest at this weight that I've ever been, right?

But I'm not that pessimistic; I'm sure I'll lose some weight--it's just that the last 10 are the hardest, and that's my goal. OK, Buck up, Jonnie.

I think I can, I think I can...chug, chug....

    Great attitude. Persistence always wins. Sometimes our bodies take awhile to catch up, but if we keep doing the things we know we should be doing, the weight and inches cooperate.

    60 minutes each day is also my plan (though sometimes I feel like I'm letting myself off too easy!!). If you start running from your house, and I start walking fast from mine we could meet somewhere in the middle and own this challenge!!
