Tweaking not Twerking

Tuesday, April 02, 2019

The Spring 5% Challenge is almost ready to begin. I have done most of the pre challenge activities. Here are some of the things I have done. Updated my page a bit but can't wait to earn some new badges with my Firecracker team. The best, most supportive team every, ok so I might be biased. I took my measurements which seem to be a better indicator for me than the scale. I've recommitted to the Spark Diet with a few modifications and dusted off my exercise gear.

During the last challenge I discovered all those excuses that I could not walk more than 6,000 steps was just a story I told myself. With the support of a side challenge among some of us Firecrackers doing a FitBit challenge I found out I could easily up my steps to 8,000 then 10,000 steps. It just meant more small bouts of 10 minute walks. I have hip and foot issues. I would say old age but that would be another excuse. People tell me I can't be my age and I say it is because I have the SPARK! I am now walking around 11,000 plus steps a few days a week.

So get ready teams, the Firecrackers are lighting their fuses. We will be blasting off soon and watch us Sizzle not Fizzle! If you missed out sighing up for a 5% Challenge team be on the look out for the next round.

Now about that twerking...... emoticon , not gonna happen!

    I'm ready to rock it with you...I've been doing my meal planning/prepping and wearing my fitbit again. I'm still getting over this sinus crud, but I am finally feeling a little better. I did get in the gym yesterday and logged it in our training week. Look forward to the spring challenge with you, fellow Firecracker, and we are an awesome team!

    You're doing GREAT! I'm so happy to be a part of the Fitbit challenges too. They really do help us all to move more, even when we might not feel like it. And you're right, the small bouts of exercise adds up. I'm excited to get started with the challenge. You motivate me! emoticon emoticon emoticon
