Looking for a new fitness program? How about trying the Presidential Fitness Challenge. This challenge comes in three varieties:

1. The Active Lifestyle Program - For those of you who aren't active on a daily basis yet, this is a great way to begin. The rules are basically to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week, for a total of 6 weeks.

2. The Presidential Champions Program - If you're already active and want a new challenge, this program is for you. Your goal is to see how many points you can earn by staying active. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns. So the more active you are, the more points you'll get. When you reach 20,000 points, you'll earn a Bronze award. Then you can continue on in the Presidential Champions program for a Silver or Gold award.

3. The Advanced Performance Presidential Champions Program - This is basically the same system as the Presidential Champions Program, except that the award goals are higher. For instance, you need to get 40,000 points to earn a Bronze award.

The Presidential Champions Fitness Program Website (where you can log your progress and also order your awards when you've reached your goal)

Also, if you want, come join the LJ pres_challenge community to chat with others who are challenging themselves with this program.

Okay, so here's how yesterday went:
5 pizza pretzels
Microwaved burrito
Orange soda
2 orange push-pops
2 slices of bread
I know it sounds lacking in nutrients, and I'm sure it was, but the important thing is that fewer things lacking in nutrients were consumed. It's a step in the right direction... I guess. :)

Well, I haven't been posting, even though you know... this is my community. I'll do pretty well for a day and then the next time I'll eat everything in sight. So I guess I'll give it another try tomorrow.

Hey guys..I'm amaryllis on getcrafty. I used to post a whole bunch on the old "glitter" site and am just now getting back into the community. Anywho..I'm about 160 lbs and 5'6". I don't have a specific weight in mind but I would really like to shed some poundage. I just want to look and feel better in my clothes. I eat like a horse and I'm 29 so, if I don't start trimming up, it's going to catch up with me!

So..don't make fun but today I've had:

sausage biscuit from McD's
2 cups coffee/black
brown sugar cinnamon pop tart
huge bowl of raisin bran with bananas
2 mini snickers
some tuna salad and crackers

Omg and it's not even dinner time yet..that's the really bad time. Oh well, guess that's why I'm here. :)
