I had a great first day of this 12 week challenge. I was so excited did my weigh-in 140.0 lbs., went to the gym for an hour doing strength training, and tracked all my food I ate.
I'm really looking forward to our weekend challenge which consists of tracking our food intake, doing exercises to rack up fitness minutes, and post on our chat thread in order to get to know our team mates. Sounds very doable to me! The challenge is from Friday to Monday. The challenge for me is to stay focused on the challenge and not all the stuff I need to do!
I'm doing this challenge for me so I need to put it on high priority. The stuff will still be there after I get my workout done!
Here's to a great round with the Spies!

Pressing Forward Again
Funny thing happened after reaching my goal weight, you guessed it I gained 14 pounds! How could I have done this to myself after working so hard for years to get to that goal. Unfortunately I'm like millions of other people.
When you reach your goal weight your journey does not end. You need to have the strength to continue your healthy journey. It takes hard work and determination. I guess I just sabotage myself. Thinking I was strong enough to do it on my own. Well, I was wrong! So I have come home to Sparkpeople and have signed up for BLC -23 team! I'm very excited to dedicate myself to the hard work and dedication that is expected. This is a 12 week challenge. "Participation not Perfection" is the mantra. Weekly weigh-ins, Last Chance Workout, Tight'n and Tone, Weekend Challenges as well as posting on the team's page.
So after taking measurements, weighing, and taking before shots I'm READY! Let me tell you when I see my photos it is so embarrassing! I decided to post them on my page to reminded me to work hard to get back in shape!
Finding time to accomplish exercise and health can be difficult, but it is really just making yourself come first.

I'm excited to start a round with Team BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge). I was very successful in the past on this team. The team leaders are so organized and very helpful! I have recently regained 14 lbs after reaching my goal of 130lbs, last year. I'm back now excited for this upcoming challenge The team is in training right now, gearing up to the starting date, September 25, 2013! We have been taking before shots, taking our body measurements and weighing ourselves. We are learning good habits already! This is a 12 week challenge, so I'm hoping to get the pounds off.
SparkPeople is my friend always here waiting for my return, never judging me, always giving me support!

Time to go back to the basics. So I hit my goal weight and was maintaining for awhile. Next thing I know I weighed myself and the scale reads 10 lbs above my goal weight! What to do? Well, I could just give up, but no, I told myself, I need to get back on SPARKPEOPLE!
My baby step this week is to eat breakfast, strength train daily and get on the bike for at least 20 minutes a day. After my workout have my protein drink! Measure my food and get on the scale for accountability. I have lost 2 lbs so far, but weigh-in day for me will be Wednesday.

My 12 week plan for cardio, strength training and healthy eating...
First of all what are my reasons to lose and maintain my weight...
"To be healthy, wealthy and wise"
Oh, no, that is something else!
My main reasons are to have:
Clothes that fit better
My plan to get there:
3 days of personal training per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
5-7 days of cardio, this will be at the gym or at home
Prepare a meal plan in advance then go shopping for items.
I will not beat myself up if I slip, but I will work extra hard if I intake more calories that I should. I will follow a 80% on track and 20% off rule. Yes, you can have pizza and lose weight!
I have a goal of reaching 130lbs., but I would like to lose more inches and have more muscle. I have a goal of more muscle definition. This round I will be using pre-workout drinks and post workout protein drinks. I am going to see if these drinks make a difference in my performance and muscle strength.
This was my first week....
Week one (9/12- 9/18) -a change in personal trainers, Chrissy is great and is not "babying" me! Great workout on Wednesday, worked on machines, she killed me on Friday with kettle bells, and Monday was using the Gravity machine, which was my first time using. I feel great!
So, I dislike these photos, but that is why I'm here!
