-count calories
-exercise{which means just try to move more right now}maybe 5 minutes of walking/per day
-Drink at least 48 oz of water/per day
If anyone wants to join me ,on a healthier lifestlye for the next 5 days. That

I'm in. I need to focus on each day at a time and not the long haul right now.

For the next 5 days I will:'

*take a daily walk and track my mileage/progres on Map My Run
*log all of my meals and snacks on FitDay as soon as they are eaten
*drink 200 oz of water per day
*eat breakfast

Why not, I'm in!

Goals:
~Exercise Everyday
~Drink at least 100 ounces of water
~Eat Healthy (ie, no processed foods)

I have been craving potato chips and have managed to make it a week OP. I want to continue that success, so this 5 day challenge is perfect for me.

I'm having a good day here as well. We had McDonald's for lunch but I ate less than half as much as I usually do and only had about 2 oz of soda. Also got in a ten minute walk.

Edited @1843 EST to add- So far so good. Need to add some more water in but otherwise I'm doing really well thus far. I missed breakfast because dh grabbed the slim fast and grabbed lo carb for me by accident. I can't stand lo carb.

Count me in, too. Thanksf or starting this thread - I like focusing just a few days at a time. My goal is no sugar for the next five days. I just had a skim latte w/ a tsp of sugar, but from now until Saturday no sugar or sweetner for me! I've done this before - have actually cut out sugar for weeks at a time - and I find my cravings go away and food tastes better and it helps with weight loss.

day 1 3/4 a success {no breakfast }

I also got in 30 minutes of freeweight training. We have a smallish gym in our storage/spare room that has pretty much sat idle since my surgery last summer but hubby cleaned it up and we spent a good half hour back there tonight working out together.
