100 Day Challenge Again and Again!
Friday, October 06, 2017
This is basically what I wrote in March then again in May. It seems like I never got started on my 100 day challenge but the good news is that I'm not giving up. This has to do with Stephs blog about a 100 day challenge and I was so fired up! What happened? Basically what she wrote at the very end sums it up perfectly," 100 days of being accountable, trying to make the best choices, and to not giving up."
Where to start? I decided to join the Fall 5% challenge which lasts for 8 weeks. I am on the shooting star team.
I really need the accountability at this point in my life. I feel that by joining this team it will help me with accountability. I have had a few surgeries in the last 3 months with the last one being a week ago. I used my surgeries as an excuse to eat everything and any thing! It will be a little scary for me or to be honest it will be real scary to get back on that scale to see how much damage I did. I hope I didn't go into 250ville but if I did I will just have to swallow my mistakes and go from here! I am also looking into chair exercises
for the next few weeks till my foot heals. I am going to try & eat healthy as possible and stay within 1200-1400 calories a day. I will try to stay at the lower end because my activity level is very low right now. I am going to get back in the habit of weighing myself each day. This practice some people frown upon
but it holds me accountable. I don't think weighing yourself each day creates a problem as long as you realize that your weight can fluctuate each day & you will hit plateaus that can last a while. I will give myself a 5 minute pep talk each day. This talk really does help me tremendously.
I will try and blog once a week to let you know my progress. Even though I have a lot going on right now I feel very good that I have made the decision to start again! I REFUSE TO GIVE UP AND STOP TRYING! I will let everything go that is in the past and start fresh! I will be starting tomorrow October 7th, 2017 and end in 100 days January 15th, 2018. Each day I will be accountable, make the best choices (most of the time) , and most important even when I slip up Not Give Up!!!!
