Well I haven't been logging my weight in here lately

Weigh in for BLC I'm down on the scale 141.9 but my average is 143.3 so next week should be a really good weigh in

Yesterday I posted a new blog : Too Many Questions To Be Asked And Answered

sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_indi
vidual.asp?blog_id=5093192


The newest challenge is going on great I have been asked if I would be a back up team leader I accepted its basically visiting team members pages as many as I can in a day and leaving comments when necessary seems easy enough so I have been dropping in on about 4 members a day

So I think I'm pretty much caught up here TNT was a awesome workout I can see why Madonna has those awesome guns emoticon

Will blog later about moving average wiehgt versus actual

Invite to 5% fall challenge has arrived I am a Casual traveler

So here is what teh team is about

2012 Fall 5% Challenge Rules:

The weekly aims of the challenges are for you to:
1. Exercise
2. Do and develop the healthy lifestyle habit
3. Lose weight

Each week we will race to a new destination, work on a healthy lifestyle habit, and do a Saturday weigh in. We're also going to celebrate victories along the way... scale and non-scale (NSV) alike!

Here are some important definitions:

FRIDAY MIDNIGHT = Friday midnight in YOUR time zone. The time stamp must be 11:59 pm - if it reaches 12:00 am it counts as Saturday. Example: you exercise Friday night at 8 PM. You must record your exercise minutes before midnight - in YOUR time zone - for those minutes to be counted for the team.

LIVING THE GOOD LIFE (LTGL) = a healthy lifestyle habit, a new one will be added to our challenge each week. Example: you don't add any extra salt to your meal.

AIR MILES = Fitness Minutes. These can be walking, running, chair exercise, cleaning your house, strength training... if you're moving intentionally then you're exercising.

RULES:

Weekly challenges run from SATURDAY morning 12:00 AM until midnight the following Friday in the team member’s time zone.

The 3 parts of the challenge are equally important. Team’s standings are based on your teams combined ranking in each of the 3 parts – Air Miles, LTGL points and Weight Loss. 1st place = 10 points, 2nd place = 9 points, 3rd place = 8 points, etc. A perfect score would be Weight Loss = 10 points, LTGL = 10 points, and Air Miles = 10 points for a total perfect score of 30 points.

We are the Casual Travelers, so we are NOT racing!! Everyone do what they can and we will not worry as much about who gets there first. The important thing is that we are all working it together!!

To Clarify Midnight Friday as stated above is midnight between Friday and Saturday.

Weekend Challenge 2 (BLC20) IT'S ABOUT THE FOOD!

•No Whites – Don’t eat any obvious white sugar or white flour. That means the usual cookies, cakes, candy, pies, sugared sodas, white breads & rolls . . . more than we can list here, but you know what they are.

•No Fast Food – If there is a drive up, stay away.

•Dump the Deep Fried Food – That means fries, potato chips, breaded fried chicken, tortilla chips at your favorite Mexican restaurant, hush puppies . . . you get the idea.

•Track all of your nutrition. Use the tracker on Spark, write it in your notebook, whatever works for you.

•Get at least 5 freggies daily.

•Get at least 20 min of intentional exercise. (Can’t have a weekend challenge without a little exercise.)

•Post on your chat thread or a blog at least one idea for controlling your nutritional intake, making meal planning easier, or eating cleaner.

Bonus: Stay within your nutrition range. Doesn’t matter what you count. It can be calories, Weight Watchers points, or carbs. But to take these points you have to have a measurable nutritional goal.

For BLC20 we have TNT (Tighten N Tone) for Thursday (but we are able to do it on Wednesdays ) which is for a fitness test here are my results then in 6 weeks we get to do it all over again 2minutes each

TNT: 9/ 12
* * Fitness Test Results * *
Push Ups: 50 (girlie kind knees bent)
Crunches: 45 (swiss ball)
Squats: 65 (squats are squats emoticon )

For "Focus Wednesday" late night snacking is my focus for the week - if I must have something it will be glass of water & piece of fruit those days I work nights last thing I will consume a protein drink I snack and munch way to much at night (after 8PM)

Finally a pledge I have taken today :

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would to my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

Signed

Linda

emoticon The GOLDEN contract

I hereby commit to my Nest-mates and myself to the twelve week challenge. I will participate to the best of my ability in challenges. To follow the BLC & Nest rules and guidelines.

I will set a program of regular exercise each week. I will focus on challenging my abilities in the pursuit of elevating my physical performance. I will endeavor to be conscious of when I eat. I will also be aware of why I eat, and will, to the best of my ability, eat primarily to satisfy my nutritional needs as opposed to my emotional needs. I will do my best to make healthy choices by substituting foods that are rich in nutrition for those that are nutritionally empty.

I am hereby joining the Golden Nest to become the POWERFUL GOLDEN PHOENIX knowing that the strength of my character will be challenged for the sake of my health.

Today was first weigh in for Leaves of Change Fall 2012 Amethyst BLC Team along with measurements. As I have a monthly accessment which includes measurements at the gym thais what I am using for the challenge just easier to have help getting measured.

1st ITC (Inter Team Challenge) is to blog about what might be holding us back from reaching our goals for bonus to blog on which one we plan to work on for the next 10 weeks.

I will be trying something different for this challenge i will be using the moving average weight instead of actual weight on scale. As example today showed a 1 pound loss there is no way I really lost one pound overnight so I do feel the moving average will give me a better idea of how I am really doing.

Question of the day: What Is My Motivation NOT To Quit On This Journey? Answer in blog tonight

sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_indi
vidual.asp?blog_id=5041659


Some might be offended but I can't help it really big obese people turn my stomach and I do have prejudices against them they are what keeps me motivated Really skinny people just don't motivate me!

Today once again I jump on the treadmill for a granny jog hey I'm really slow 3.2 to 3.8 speed on a level 2 setting turns out ot be about a 17 minute jog NOW that is SLOW!

Wasn't to sure if I would receive an invitation for Leaves of Change Fall BLC challenge or not but I did team Amethyst still waiting for 5% challenge invite

Doesn't seem like there will be any conflict between BLC20 and this one

Leaves of Change Fall Amethyst BLC team challenge will start on Sept 5th for the first weigh in and run until Nov 14th Theme is : CHANGE Requirements are weigh ins post cardio minutes & strength training minutes ITC ( Inter TEam Challenge) Bonus: Measurements on Sept 5th then on Nov 14th chat thread for us and games.

Week 1 ITC

Start by looking at things that might be holding you back from reaching your goals. Make a list of 5 things that might be holding you back or share 5 things that might have held you back in the past. You can do this privately, blog, journal or share it on your team in a thread.

Healthy Change Bonus: REFLECTING
Blog or journal about 1 thing that you are planning to work on this Fall Challenge. We will compare in Week 10 and see how far we have come.

Gives me time to reflect on my journey here then time to blog about it here and on my spark page.

----------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
------------------------

Hit the gym today for some strength training and cardio tomorrow will have my accessment at the gym Sunday was the 30 day mark so I shall see how I did Can't say I did great I only had 15 cardio sessions in and 13 strength training sessions in so I am not very hopeful that I lost anything.

Voom Voom emoticon emoticon Start your engine Linda Ready Set GO emoticon

Yes I have been here a million times before, after my self pity party for a couple of months I have my game plan / plan of action made I know how I will accomplish my goals.

A little background information before I get into the nitty gritty emoticon Back In May when I had a change in PCP (doctor) and who just totally and completely got into my head not in a good way either. She no longer has control over how I feel about myself. Partly do agree with the PCP that I do have to lose a few more pounds, so that being said I have a new goal weight of 130 to 135 (old was 140 to 145) I did get back up to 152 Okay it happens! Doesn't it?

I will be handling this at 5% challenge this way I shouldn't feel so over whelmed! (I'm hoping to get ot take part in the 5%challenge here on SP shortly) In the mean time BLC20 will be starting up around September 12th.

My biggest concerned still is my body fat % I have to much fat on this body! I want ot be a lean mean machine emoticon with a body fat % of 25 %.

New gym that I started with last month I'm using free weight to help build muscles added some other fitness class into the picture Yoga emoticon want to become a human pretzel emoticon and water aerobics emoticon

October Planet fitness will be opening they have later hours at there gym so when I can't get to the main gym I will hit the other

With no further ado here are my current measurements emoticon emoticon
