Fitbit 7-day Challenge ~ Accepted!

I go from barely blogging to 2 posts in one day! What sorcery is this!?

Ordinarily, I wouldn't post twice in one day but I got this 7-Day Challenge from Fitbit today and for the sake of my sanity, I need to post it the day I start it LOL

I really like this idea and hope that it goads me into doing better fitness and weight wise. My biggest crutch is no motivation and I'm hoping that with these prompts, I'll do better. Also, in setting more achievable goals, that should give me more incentive to reach them......duh, that's why you make achievable goals so that you can actually accomplish them LOL

So the 7-day Challenge on the app started off asking where I'd like to start (pics below).

I selected "Not sure, I'm just curious".

In this section, I selected "Lose weight" and 

"Reaching/maintaining goals has been tough and I need to try something new".

This is already looking promising!

My original step goal was 10,000 that was automatically set by Fitbit as the daily recommended average. If anyone paid attention to my Fitbit Stats, I rarely reached that goal. According to Fitbit, my average is 5,081, so 6,000 is a more attainable goal.

Weight has always been a touchy subject with me (I know I'm not alone there! haha), so I wiped out my goal weight, but it's an attainable goal if I keep everything else up.

I ended up selecting all 5 of the goals below b/c they're ALL good goals to have.

So, goal #1 is 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week. That's should be feasible, even if it's just walking. LOL

Goal #2 is to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night. Looks like I can manage that. 😀

Goal #3 is 15 minutes of activity per day, that could be during commercials......aim low LOL

Goal #4 is to log food daily. One thing I struggle with, maybe with this challenge, I can do it.

Goal #5 is 64 oz of water per day. I'm averaging about 32 oz (I know, pathetic but I honestly just don't get thirsty but when I am, I drink water).

So, there are my 5 goals for my 7-day challenge. I hope this is an ongoing thing b/c I think that'd help me complete these goals. I love a good challenge. 😉

Wish me luck!!!

Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
