I forgot to blog yesterday. Need to make a list of everything I need to do.
I may have to cut back on some push up exercises. My wrists have been hurting. I've been doing the wall push ups, when called for any kind of push ups. Can't wear my wrist brace and do push ups either. lol
Big supper planned for tonight, of course, the day before weigh in. I'll have soup and some fruit, if I have the will power. DH is planning on a roast, mashed potatoes and biscuits.
I want to do the menu thing then special dinners can be planned for later. We never get around to making out menus. Use to, it was a great way to get rid of left overs and know just what to buy. Left overs get pushed to the back of the fridge and we end up buying extra.
We have 5-weeks until the end of our BLC#12 challenge and I'm a couple pounds above where I want to be. I'm not putting as much effort as I was doing the beginning of last year. Life styles change so it makes it hard to keep up with that kind of schedule.

I've got to be realistic that I don't think I'm going to reach my original goal of 98 lbs. It is going slower and time is running out; we only have 12-weeks altogether.
I know I'm not doing all that I was doing back when I lost all my weight and inches. I don't have all the time I did back then, but I need to concentrate on what is my main priority, lose weight or inches. I think the inches will help me fit better into my clothes, so strength training should be upper most on my schedule.
The 100s/GYM has given me loads of strength training info. The Boot Camp is another forum to follow.
Just put my mind and effort into it.

What is going on? Is it just me that feels there's an awful lot of devastation around us. For me, lately, it started with the young Luge guy at the Olympics dying. A skater lost her mom to a massive heart attack, just 2-days before she had to skate. Now earthquakes and Tsunamis. It just said on the news that Japan may get what we thought Hawaii would experience. USA was lucky.
I heard that Argentina had an earthquake as well as Chili.
I feel so bad for the families of those who died. The Luger's parents probably said, 'Good luck, have fun, see you when you come home, with or without a medal'. Never did they think their son would come home in a coffin.
The ice skater probably had plans to have dinner with her parents, maybe shopping, seeing the other events at the Olympics. Seeing her parents in the stand after she skates. But no, just her dad. Her mom was just 55 years old. I cried through her routine.
My heart breaks for family and friends.
God is still trying to get our attention, 'Pull your life together before it is too late'.
They've been saying, for a long time, that we are living in the end times. Someday the Rapture will come and all the saved in Jesus will go home to be with him.
As a Christian, I do believe that Jesus is God's son. By believing and confessing we will be saved and go to heaven when we die.
I know, some people don't believe that, but if I am.....where will you be when you die? Don't need to answer. Just blogging my thoughts.
Most of the stories in the news haven't been exactly uplifting, have they?

Okay, so I wasn't so gung-ho on the exercising today. I've been watching tv news about the possible Tsunami, so glad what we expected didn't take place. Things could have been worse. I think God is trying to tell us something. So many things happening in the world.
I should have been exercising while watching tv. I won't get the minutes in that I had yesterday. Tomorrow, I must do better and stay off of facebook until I have accomplished something substantial. I ended up redoing FarmTown because I bought a dairy barn. Geesh!
A year ago I weighed 93 lbs, now I'm around 109. Then I was doing a Wii Challenge and it helped me lose inches. Along with the treadmill and other routines. If only I would have started back on my routine when I started to gain, but no, I was too lazy.
By the end of this BLC round, I plan to be able to fit into my jeans and be as close to my goal weight of 98 lbs. If I was 5'5", I wonder if my weight would be shifted around so I would be skinny? Maybe most of my inches would be in my....bra! Couldn't hurt. I use to say I was an A-- cup.
Oh well, I'll try to do better tomorrow. I still have time to put in some more minutes tonight.

Our SPRING challenge sounds like a pretty good challenge.
S~Share. Make a blog.
P~Pump it up with strength training
R~Rest, 6 or more hours a night
N~Nutrition, stay in range
G~Get hydrated, 8 glasses a day.
I think I will be able to do most of them except the Rest. Being a caregiver to my mom, I have to get up during the night sometimes. It is hard to get back to sleep. She doesn't go to bed until around 11:30 at night. She does a lot of sleeping in her chair so, if I'm pre-occupied with doing something...like Facebook, it may be later getting her to bed.
I am also on another challenge with the Weekend Challenge team...LOSE. Have to count certain strength training. Two birds with one stone! Count the minutes for BLC and the reps for Weekend C.
I look forward to these challenges to hopefully get back into shape like I was a year ago. I look forward to the eating challenges so I will eat more fruit and veggies and for the cardio/strength challenges.
