I am really excited to participate in the 2015 Spring 5% challenge. Here are my commitments for the challenge:

30 minutes of exercise each day, no matter what. I will often do a good bit more than this, but this is my minimum. I commit to strength training three days a week. I committed to that in the winter and did not live up to that commitment so I am determined to do it now. I feel so much better when I do it!

Food: Staying within my calorie range of 1250-1600 and eating primarily whole food, with minimal refined sugar. I will log my food every day. I have been struggling with sugar (again) and am ready to cut it out.

I am also committed to improving my sleep habits, which are very out of whack. I am struggling with not using my laptop late at night. Time to rediscover books!

These are fine-tuned versions of the goals I had for the winter challenge. I made a lot of progress over the course of the Winter Challenge - most weeks I far exceeded my exercise minutes and did great with my food. I want to work on improving strength training and sleep in particular.

Other Information:
�An optimist isn't necessarily a blithe, slightly sappy whistler in the dark of our time. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places--and there are so many--where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."

- Howard Zinn, "The Optimism of Uncertainty," The Nation, 20
