Here's your STRONGEND #7 for this coming wknd: 5/27 thru 5/30 !!!
Good Morning BLC'ers!
Can you believe that we are half-way through this challenge? NOW is a great time to take a look at those goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the challenge. Are you on track? Do you need to tweak something? With our goals in mind, we are excited to bring you the NOW Challenge. This challenge will run 5/27 (Friday) through 5/30 (Monday). Yep, we know right smack in the middle of Memorial Day. What better time do we need to be reminded to FOCUS on our Goals!
So here we have it...
The NOW Challenge...Let's get started NOW!
N: Nutrition: Stay in Calorie Range, Eat for Health! Keep Track, Log your Food and Stay in Range! You may track in a Journal and then Log in SP or whatever tracker you use later if it is easier or necessary. And YES Counting Points for WW will be admitted. Reflecting shows some 'truths'...some good (increased freggies, when cravings strike) and some eye openers (stressful news = ME wanting junk food)... knowing this will help you learn better coping skills (10 pts/day)
O: Overturn a bad habit--be it nutrition, physical, mental (ie beating yourself up) then JOURNAL or BLOG about it - Post a blog entry or write in a personal journal about your Mid-challenge Thoughts. What bad habits do you have that are keeping you from your goals? What can you do to break these bad habits? Are you WHERE you wanted to be? What are your goals to Finish STRONG? What's your plan? (10 pts/day)
W: Wipe your brow. Get your heart rate up revved and get sweaty! Did you know more muscle boosts your metabolism, so pump some iron this weekend. Your Choice 20 minutes of CARDIO or STRENGTH...Why not Both?!?! Use good judgment when deciding whether to count an activity or not. YOU KNOW what you do better than we do. For example: Mall Walking = YES; Mall Shopping = NO. Mowing your grass? Well, does your heart rate get up? Then yes, count it! Are you sitting on a riding mower? Then no, DON'T count it.
20 minutes of intentional exercise/day (10 pts/day)
