Choose a TIKI to represent your fearless journey through the sweltering Summer to the oasis of Autumn, and to act as a reminder of your greatest strength:
I'm going to be a little selfish and call upon three TIKIs. I will call to Paka'a, the god of wind, to put the wind behind my sails and to bring me some cool summer breezes in this journey. I will call to Hi`iaka, the patron goddess of Hawai'i and the hula, to put some dance in my step and to teach me to defeat the monsters and demons that come upon me, as she did on her journey, the natural way. Because fighting for my body is the most natural thing. When all else fails, time to call upon the big dude, Kâne, considered the highest of the 4 major deities, he gives life through the sun, sky and dawn.
My NUTRITION goals for the next two months will be generally focused on GETTING ON PLENTY OF FRESH FOODS - FRUITS, VEGGIES, FISH, ETC. - AND CUTTING OUT AS MUCH SALT AS POSSIBLE.
My CARDIO goals for the next two months will be generally focused on INCREASING MY CONSISTENCY AND TRYING NEW (AND FUN!) THINGS TO CHALLENGE MYSELF AND KEEP MYSELF INTERESTED.
(I'm about 95% sure I'm buying that gym membership because waiting on the insurance company is just torture! I will also be buying a goal outfit for the end of this challenge. I know I'm really close to dropping a size, and I think I could do it if I work hard enough for the next two months. I've already picked it out and will order it ASAP!)
My STRENGTH goals for the next two months will be generally focused on CORE - CORE - CORE! AND ARMS.
My mantra/slogan for the TIKI Challenge will be SHAKE IT, BAKE IT, MAKE IT, AND, WHEN IT DOUBT, FAKE IT!
I am determined to change my body and my life in the next two months and I know I can do it because IT HAS BECOME A PART OF MY LIFE. I'M STILL ALIVE. TO GIVE UP IS TO DIE, AND I AM NOT READY TO DIE. I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT TO LIBERATE MY HEALTHY BODY FROM THE BONDS I HAVE PLACED UPON IT FOR SO, SO LONG!
The best way to MOTIVATE me is to BE MY SHOULDER WHEN I NEED IT, BUT DON'T LET ME FALL INTO EXCUSES. REMIND ME THAT I AM POWERFUL AND STRONG AND AM ALREADY DOING AMAZING THINGS!
I need my AB! teammates (and SparkFriends) to stop by my page and tell me THAT THEY ARE WATCHING TO SEE IF I DO WHAT I SAY I'M GOING TO.
I, Esther (CALLIKIA), promise to listen to my body and not push her beyond what is sane or healthy in the boiling hot months to come, and I promise to treat her with respect and dignity and love, because my body hasn't failed me yet.
