A question asked by the Team Leaders was: What areas are you improving in?
Things I do now that I didn’t do pre-challenge:
~ Ride bikes with my kids for fun. Today, we toured a downtown area & even rode an extra 3 miles (roundtrip) to eat lunch & then back to the starting point.
~ Eat veggies. Tonight, I had the most veggies of anyone in my family. That never happened before the challenges! I look for ways to include more freggies in my diet, mostly because I know they will fill me up & make me feel better. I’ve grown to love the taste of cooked carrots (not sure I will ever like them raw).
~ Look for ways to be busy/off the couch. I am a book worm at heart. It is hard for me to put down the books. But, in trying to reach new fitness goals & help my team, I now look for ways to be active. Today, I did walking laps in the lazy river, went up the stairs 3 times to the twitly slide, & did some gardening.
~ Value the hard work I’ve done to make my body healthy. I’m getting more comfortable walking around in a bathing suit. I’m liking the way the muscles look in my legs. I’m working on getting proud of my arms too!
I’m not sure what goals I will set for myself for the Summer Challenge, but I know there are areas that I can work on. And I’m sure I will meet new friends along the way!
