Smile New for June 1st or 4th of July Challenge

OK Ladies, time to re-commit to our Challenge. The goal is to post your plan for each day regarding what you will do for fun, what you will do for exercise, and what you plan to eat.

Whoever has the most posts wins a prize (NOTE: only posts that contain your plan count).

Good luck,

Lynn

How Do You Keep CommittedWe should remind ourselves on a daily basis why weíre going thru the discipline and sometimes tedious job of posting our journals for the challenge. To look better, feel good about ourselves and to improve our health. That takes commitment!
We started out with about a dozen people last month and our commitment to the challenge made a dive out the window. For the June challenge we need to rededicate ourselves and stick to it. Recording our menu keeps us honest about what weíre eating and it also gives other posters ideas to try something new. It even helps you keep things in perspective when you stumble - you can see that it was only one bad day amid a generally good trend. A large part of losing weight is the ability to get back on the horse when you fall off. You always fall off - the only issue is whether you get back on or give up. We need to commit and be accountable to the challenge, check in daily.

OK, everyone. Your turn. What are the tools and techniques and tricks that will help you stay the course.
This time around Iím going to make a document on Word with my exercise, fun and menu on it, then fill in and re-use it every day. That will cut down on the tediousness of typing most of the same foods and categoriesí over and over again.

All right, Can I go furtherÖ? For me this is not a challenge.

It is Sharing and Learning.

Its like a camp.

We share ourselves. And I definitely learn something here everyday.

Sometimes I learn something, I can use in my new life changes. And sometimes I learn it CAN BE fun.





Ok. Here is my menu for yesterday.

Breakfast: Fiber one honey clusters, Eggbeaters with 2% cheddar
Snack: Carrots

Lunch: Left over bbq chicken and a very large salad, with greens, red kidney beans, tomatoes and mandarin oranges. topped with kenís sun dried tomato salad dressing.
Yogurt with raspberries

Dinner: Crab cake with sm. baked potato and 2 cups cauliflower.

Snack: P.B. and J. on roman meal bread.

For exercise: Did the elliptical 22 min. 60 Crunches on the ab lounge.

For fun: I did some work in the yard

Total: 1449
Fat: 20%
Carbs: 52%
Fiber: 55
Protein: 29%

As you can see, I don't write much on this thread - just the basics for the Challenge. Last month I got off track with travelling and teaching. This month, I'm not doing either until the last week in June, so I hope I will do better with my posts.
