Top five -

Monday, April 05, 2010

I get emails from Biggest Loser club all the time. MOST OF THE TIME, I just delete them because MOST of the time, it's all common sense stuff. Today, however, I thought it was kind of neat. It gave me an assignment and I like those. So here's what it entails : Try listing your top 5 choices in each category:

TOP 5 VICTORIES YOU'VE EXPERIENCED UP TO NOW IN YOUR JOURNEY.
(In no particular order)
~reduced my weight from 181 to 128(ish) ALMOST what I weighed in high school
~ran a dozen half marathons and countless other 10, 8 and 5 km "races"
~changed my lifestyle in a positive enough way that my children are adopting it, too.
~encouraged 100's of runners to complete their goals AND even got some non-runners to START running.
~cycled over 150 kms in two days and climbed 1512 stairs with little or no training (all just because I'm a healthier me now) I should add, not on the same day.

TOP 5 GOALS YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH THIS YEAR. (tough one!)
~ Climb Crowsnest Mountain
~Score a new PB in a HM
~More than 6 sets at the Climb for Wilderness
~

TOP 5 STRATEGIES YOU USE TO HELP MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES CONSISTENTLY.
~try to equate what I take in with what it'll take to burn it off.
~remind myself that I'm a role model for my children
~remind myself that I post almost everything on Spark =) and I should practice what I preach (within reason)
~think about how I'll feel after if I don't make the healthy choice
~reward myself for being "good"

TOP 5 SKILLS OR PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES THAT YOU'RE PROUD OF.
~I can run 21.1 kms
~I (think that I) look naked (TMI?)

    Great blog, Penny! My problem with things like this is that as soon as someone asks me these sorts of questions, my mind shuts down & I can't think of anything but your answers are a good starting point (I won't copy, I promise).

    Hugs, Nell!

    I think my niece is going to do the Regina Marathon. She did the Royal Victoria last fall. She ran the Hypothermic race as well. I keep trying to talk her into doing this one I saw that is on Easter Island. *lol* As far as what my goals are, man, I have no idea. That sounds like a cop-out I am sure but I just don't want to put pressure on myself because that's when my head gets weird and right now it is in a good place and I would like to keep it there.

    NICE! I may have to try this too. But not today - I'm having trouble thinking today, LOL.

    I do know though, that I want to go to Victoria (cheerleader) and Germany (SIGHTSEEING!). Can I come to Kelowna with you and that good friend also?
