5% Challenge- Countdown Activity Catch Up 6 - Final

Saturday, February 23, 2013

And now to finish the pre-challenge activies!

6. List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks.

Bored: I honestly don't know how to make it interesting for my personality, with what is available to me. I like to swim, but can't do that right now. I like zumba classes at the gym, but can't afford that. DVD's just aren't the same. I'd love to workout with friends, but they always bail.

Do too much to start with and end up sore, or do too little and see no results: Work on pacing to get things just right. Like porridge. Ha!

Just don't want to: Refuse to give in to this. "Don't sacrifice what you want, for what you want right now."

7. Starting Measurements

8. Take quiz - Are You Prepared to Reach Your Goals?
