The 5% challenge is almost starting

Friday, April 07, 2017

Tomorrow the 5% challenge will start. We're starting on a very interesting activity. We're pretending that we'll be traveling to Abu Dhabi which is 6484 miles away. We pretend that our minutes spent doing fitness are the miles to Abu Dhabi. we also have to track our LTGL points. this weeks LTGL will be pretty easy since we have track our water consumption. I'm in a really good habit of drinking water. After breakfast when I have two cups of coffee, water is all I drink.

Last night we went to the SJ Sharks game. Unfortunately they lost to Edmonton. We park about a mile from the arena and walk to our seats. Each of the two intermissions we walk around the arena. I think that is about a half of a mile. Then we walk back to the car for about a three mile evening. I already had about 13,000 steps from my walk at work. I had a 19,000 step day. Unfortunately we aren't tracking until tomorrow.

But I was proud to enter my starting weight as 126.7 for my small boned 5'5" body. Pretty darn good BMI even if I do say so myself of 21.1. I picked my goal weight 6 years ago based on a BMI right in the middle of 18.5 and 25. My weight is the same as when I got pregnant with my first son. He was born in 1978. I was only 26 at the time. Not bad!

Well I'll continue to blog about this challenge for the next 8 weeks Spark Cheers!
