Summer B.E.A.C.H. Challenge!
Mini Beach Challenge - Olympic sport I did three days this week is rowing. I used my husband's bowflex which had a seat that swithced into rowing mode. My shoulder blades are killing me. It really takes a lot out of you to row for even 5 or 10 min. I did it though. At Black Pepper Chicken as the new Chinese dish. Tally - Red Hot Beach Bods Saturday - 3 Sunday - 3 Monday - 3 Tuesday - 5 (started double points challenge) Wednesday - 3 (Rowing is my Olympic Exercise - Bowflex) Thursday - 3 (Rowing is the Olympic Exercise) Friday - 4 (Rowing was the Olympic Exercise) Eating a new Chinese food today at lunch. Ate Black pepper chicken for the first time. It had a lot of peper.

Summer B.E.A.C.H. Challenge!
Mini Challenge - 8/04 through 8/09 - Red Hot Beach Bods I play serious tennis. Not enough to be a pro or make a living, besides I'm over 40 and the life of a professional tennis player is pretty short :-). Anyway, I have played tennis for years and now I get a bit of pain in my knee if I play for too long or for two or three consecutive days. I know the excess weight isn't helping which is why I really need to get it off. For the challenge this week I did research on how to treat intermittent knee pain. From the research I learned that I need to do more strengthening exercises specifically for the knee. My son has a bow flex which I used this morning to do some knee strength training. A good article on this for anyone who is in a similar situation is http://www.bigkneepain.com/

While studying the relationship between vitamin A, lung inflammation, and emphysema, Richard Baybutt, associate professor of nutrition at Kansas State, made a surprising discovery: a common carcinogen in cigarette smoke, benzo(a)pyrene, induces vitamin A deficiency. studies indicate that not only does the benzo(a)pyrene in cigarette smoke cause vitamin A deficiency, but that a diet rich in vitamin A can help counter this effect, thus greatly reducing emphysema.

Hi Everyone, Today was a 4 for me. I did pretty well. Only missed my WW watchers goal by 1 point. I was soooo....hungry tonight. I have worked out a plan so that I know exactly what my daily point tally will be. B.E.A.C.H. - My changed habits - Five days a week any exercise and three days a week weight training; Daily log of food and exercise and staying within my WW points total. Exercise - 2 points for at least 10000 steps each day; or 2 points for 30 min exercise plus weight training. Food - 3 points if I log everything and keep within the WW point total; 2 points if I log everything but miss the point total; 1 point if I log everything on the next day but miss point total;

Team Herschel - To infinity and Beyond
At work I lead a team of Project Managers. We have to deliver on time, on budget and we have to do it right. I often have to perform most of the roles described. I am however more inclined to be an introvert and love to problem solve. As a result I have become a specialist in my organization and Ihave always been a team player. So number 6. Team worker - cooperative, diplomatic, listens, builds and averts friction and number 9. Specialist – single minded, self starting, provides knowledge and skills in rare supply are the two roles that I volunteer for.

Team Herschel - "What is the one thing (bad habit or piece of baggage) you want to put in that air lock, push the button and watch disappear into the black hole forever?" Late night (after 8:00 p.m.) snacking (often around 700 calories after dinner) is the one habit that I will banish!! - 2 days on the wagon so far :-)

I was down to 173 during the week so this is disappointing, especially on weigh in day. I vow to do better this week and I am so glad to have discovered you guys and to be involved in the challenge. I feel so accountable Exercise this week; past Saturday - 60 min tennis; Monday 30 min (treadmill) Tuesday nothing; Wednesday; 20 min treadmill; 1 hour and 30 min tennis. Thursday; 15 min treadmill; Friday; nothing. Today 85 min of tennis. I am using a step counter and what I found is that I can do about a thousand steps in 10 min. Today I played tennis for 2.5 hours and my step counter is at 8500 so since tennis is stop and go that equals about 85 minutes!! or one hour and 25 min walking.

Mini Challenge My goals for this challenge are to: 1) Exercise for at least 30 minutes 5 times per week 2) Record what I eat and if I exercise every day 3) Limit night time eating to before 8 o'clock p.m. If I can do these three things I will consider myself a success. I am looking for more control over what I do relative to diet and exercise. I have started my "diet" over, every single day, for years. Usually starting out with healthy breakfast, reasonable lunch, then losing control by the end of the day and munching into the late evening hours. I am looking for a more discipline me...a NewMe2009
