Get Fit After 40 Summer 15 Pound Challenge Begins!!!!

This is it!!! Today is Day 1 of "Get Fit After 40 Summer 15 Pound Challenge"!!!! I'm excited, nervous and scared all at the same time!!

Excited because this challenge is just what I need to help me lose some weight. It gives me accountability, support and something to work toward.

Nervous because what if I fail!!! Will I let all the others participating in the challenge down? Will I look bad if I fail??

Scared because I'm wondering if I can really do it. I've tried to do it before in the last few months and after one week it all goes to the wayside. Will it be the same this time???

I'm just going to take the challenge one day at a time. If I can't handle one day at a time I'm going to take it one meal at a time.

As for exercise - I'm going to remember how good it feels after I exercise to get me motivated to do it. I do feel awesome after exercising and I sleep a whole lot better. Exercise also keeps me motivate to eat right. I feel like I'm doing something good for my body by exercise so I want to put good food into my body also.

SO - here it goes!!! Day One of the challenge!!! I'll let you know how it goes!!!

I don't care if you lost one pound the whole summer, it would be one pound less on your body.

Be good to yourself.

and it's day five, Woman.
hows it all feeling and going?

LOVE the challenge.

Scared because I'm wondering if I can really do it.

you can. and you need (I know. look at me telling you what to do ;)) to decide in your mind that you can and not let a THOUGHT of failure come into play.

do your best.
and, when you do, there is no failing because you gave it your all.
