10,000 steps a day and exercise DVDs or elliptical, stationary bike, rowing machine. Alternate cardio and strength training and since all our equipment is here at home, I have my workout clothes, shoes, and gadgets, set out near where I work out, each day.

Fall 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment

I have a commitment to do 30 min of exercise daily 6/7 days a week.

My plan is to do Refit Rev a couple of times a week.

On other days it will be an exercise dvd such as Jessica Smith, Leslie Sansone, or a YouTube video.

I also have a treadmill, so if the mood isn't striking me for these, my plan is to walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes.

I find that I am most consistent when I exercise first thing in the morning - about 5 am.

My fall 5% challenge exercise commitment:

I am going to do a deep water aerobics class twice a week at least - tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

I am going to start using the exercise ball I move back and forth in my closet to do crunches on, and move on from there. I am also signing up for a walk to prevent suicide on November 11th, so I want to start walking to do well at this walk.

My clothes are ready and I carry my water bottle where ever I go. I will be using SparkPeople video's, YouTube videos, and some that I have at home. I also do body weight exercises in front of the TV at night. Every day I do neck exercises that the PT gave me to do. My husband got out the stationary bike so we could start using it. I have posted this to my Spark page.

Working on developing my full schedule, but I have made sure that I have everything I need!

Gym bag is packed!

I've registered for my first 5K in a series - planning to run about one a month, to really make sure I'm developing healthy habits and consistency!

Bought a Groupon for 10 dance classes, planning to do one a week throughout the challenge!

Currently debating on whether I want to get a gym membership near my office. If I do, it would be for the Zumba classes!

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

My swim bag is good to go. Don't need much equipment for any of my other activities.

Exercise plan is strength training at home in the mornings, morning runs on weekends, evening cardio classes on the nights we don't have the kids.

emoticon & emoticon Welcome 5% Challengers new and returning. The countdown to the Challenge is so exciting as we gather together and get ready for take-off.

emoticon 5% Challenge will be Saturday October 6, 2018.

Do these countdown assignments as they fit into your schedule. Use this time to set goals and plan for a successful fall challenge. Be ready Day 1 to put your good intentions into good actions.

OK, let's get started. Regardless of what you have been doing, remind yourself daily "I used to be that way, but now I am different"... quote by Linda Spangle. Empower yourself! Our challenge is not just about losing weight, it's also about having a strong healthy body. It about being a little stronger than you were the day before. Motto - strive for progress, not perfection.

Starting today - aim for at least 20 minutes of daily exercise to gain momentum and surge into summer. You can break it into smaller sessions if that helps. But don't mistake being busy for being physically active. You need exercise to have ease of movement, strength to do your daily activities and to feel happier.

emoticon We have 446 members now. If you are a blogger please mention the 2018 Fall 5% Challenge and invite your friends to join. You can use the 'Share This Post With Others' button under a blog too. This will help us recruit new members. This link is to our Community page.

Did you notice the 'Sorting Post on Top' button. Click it to 'Sorting First Post on Top' to make it easier to read the countdown activities.

Make this month one you will remember as a turning point in your life, when you decided to put your good intentions into actions for a healthier lifestyle. Look for ways to improve your health, feel better about yourself, and get launched with a running start.

Take part in these Countdown Activities. It will help you develop your personal action plan for success. You are off to a FRESH start and in the future you will join your team for an exciting 8 week Challenge. When you put thought into your desired actions and outcomes you are planning for success.

Our Leaders are setting up the Challenge behind the scenes. Your team invitation will be going out in the next week or so and you will have time to get to know your leaders and team mates. On the FIRST DAY of the Challenge, please weigh in and note your weight so you have it ready to record on your team page. If you will be away please post earlier, before you leave.

Exercise

Resources - Dust off the scale, get your exercise clothes out where you can see them, pull out the runners, find the gym bag, wash and fill the water bottle, find the pedometer, the heart rate monitor, swim suit, dog leash if you have a dog, take the clothes off the treadmill, find your Biggest Loser workout DVDs, see what exercise programs are at your gym, on TV, Spark TV, youtube, or learn to use Map My Walk on Spark, find a Meetup group that walks, dances or bikes. Just get out there.

Tip - put a pair of runners, jacket and a hat in the car so you are ready to walk any time.

Program - Plan on what exercise you actually will do. If you are just starting out aim for consistency; will you walk daily for 20 minutes? If you have been exercising for awhile can you challenge yourself to increase the intensity and time? Follow Spark exercises for upper, core, lower and whole body exercises. Look at chair exercises if you have mobility issues or to add additional exercise minutes while you watch TV. Spark exercises are excellent and require little equipment, and are the same as other professional trainers assign.
