review of my journey in the 5% winter challenge

Tuesday, March 03, 2020

The winter challenge is coming to close it was interesting challenge. I did not reach the 5% weight loss but learned several things to take with me in the Spring challenge.

I learned to accept the scales bouncing up and down between 145 and 143 the entire winter challenge.

I am learning how to be like the little engine climbing the mountain in the story book The little train that could . Reminding my self I know I can , I know I can ! and I reach the top of the mountain I going to be shouting I knew I could I knew I could.

I learned a few tips to work on my Silly Eating
Rule 1 no eating at the computer sticky keys crumbs in keyboard not a good plan

Rule 2 drink a glass of water
If I am still craving something have some fruit (like grapes )

worked on my fitness
I remind my self of a saying that was on a the back of piggy bank I had growing up .
“Remember to watch your pennies and the dollars will take care of them selves.’’
I changed a few words. Remember to watch your fitness minutes and the pounds will fall off!

A Sparker shared her plan of exercising snacking.

Doing 5 min x 6= 30 mins
“Exercise snacking refers to “fun-sized” portions of exercise that fit into a day. they add up at the end of the day remember something is better than nothing’’. Beth Donovan
Thank you Beth.
My plan at the start of the challenge was to focus on working on my fitness and getting to the gym which more than one time a week and I did it! Some times only twice a week. My new goal is to go 3 to 4 times a week.
