August 2014

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Since my new position at work keeps me so very busy along with being a single mom and a full time student lol, I rarely get time to do more on spark then comment on a blog once in a while and track. I am staying fairly active in my BLC challenge...I would like to do better though. Nothing real substantial coming out of me today, but I am going to post my August goals.

1 - Get out and stay out of the 190's
2 - Continue on my nutrition plan and continue tweaking it for better results
3 - 1500 fitness minutes
4 - 1 gallon of water every single day
5 - keep positive when the scale decides to be mean.

    I hope the 190's takes a picture to remember you by, because I know you are leaving for good in August!! emoticon emoticon

    Life can get crazy at times & it's so easy to just put things off until "later". Great job making the most of the time you have available! Great goals! emoticon

    I hear you! I am really busy as well and I only read a few blogs and I am active only on one team, Team CAMO in the BLC. Round 26 will be starting in Sept and newbies can register in late August. My hangout here at Spark is the CAMO chat thread and everything BLC related, although not your BLC, yet. You CAN do it!! August will light up!! emoticon emoticon

Ok so my daily accountability blogs are gonna need to be more like weekly plans of attack with a recap at the end of the week. This week I only show a .2 lb loss and it upsets me but it is probably bloat and TOM. I am struggling this week to stick to lower carbs and have had a headache for about 3 days. Low carb used to be so easy lol. Today is going to be a higher carb day, we are having a going away lunch for two co workers, and I know there won't be a lot of healthy options. Such is life, and I need to learn how to deal with having a bad food day and not letting it turn into a bad food week/month/ year.

Since BLC weeks are Wednesday- Tuesday here is my plan of attack for this week.

Wednesday - planned higher calorie/carb day
Thursday - fasting day
Friday - low carb
Saturday - low carb
Sunday - low carb skip the cake at the bday party for my niece
Monday - fasting day
Tuesday - low carb

Fitness goals -
300 minutes total

    I'm looking to tweak my diet to help me loose more. I love the idea of journaling daily and focusing on low carb. On your "fasting" days are you eating at all? Juicing? I'm looking for some tips!

I took my carb reload on Saturday, I really felt I needed it. Now I am scared to check the scale, so I am staying away from it until tomorrow morning.

I met all of my goals Friday except the calendar... Will do that tonight after work.

Today's goals:
45 mins of cardio
30 mins of strength
1 gallon of water
under 45 net carbs
