It's on! It's begun. 1200 calories of balanced eating, strength and cardio exercises 6x a week, and being accountable to weigh-in once a week.
Challengers seem a lot more motivated than the previous phases. We've already started email supportive activity. Hurray!
I want to start a new blogroll with challenger blogs so I can check in now and then with my other P5 Peops. P-Fivers. :D Some time this week I'll start putting that together.
Did Pilates today. Did my walking. Knees weren't so cooperative with the jogging part. Geesh.
I've only had 450 calories (rounded) so far, so I have plenty for supper and a night snackie (I am addicted to my yogurt/fruit/nut snack). I've had more than half my water, and will have the rest before/during/after supper, and maybe leave one glass to have with my snackie.
My legs and arms and chest and hairline still have the itchy red bumps. I wore long leggings to walk just in case.
It's just the first day, and it's easy to be pumped the first day of a new challenge phase. Let's keep the momentum and faith in ourselves going. Let's see this as a good first step to lifelong habits of controlled eating and consistent movement. Let's not drop out..not a single one of us! If someone falters, let's cheer them back up. If someone slow down, let's get some wind at their back. Keep me going....and you keep going.....
