I know I am supposed to use the SMART goals format, I can never remember how that actually goes.... Now that I have done this once before, I want to really focus on making this work for me. I really want to see myself improve in the giving and receiving support. That would make me happy. Plus I really want to lose 12 pounds and once again, my friend exercise and I, we need to get closer, much closer, best buds even! Even when the odds seem against us getting together, we still should meet!

Now that we have gotten half way through the BLC challenge they tell me it's time to reflect. Reflect on my previous goal and see where I am in accordance with where I wanted to be upon finishing this challenge. Well here goes....
I was surprised to read over my goals blog and see some of the things I have accomplished. I think me and exercise have become friends, or at least closer friends than what we were before this challenge, thanks to some very well managed workout suggestions from the BLC leaders. (Thank you, ladies!) I really do love the way I feel after working out and that is definitely worth it to me. Because I have been working out I have gotten a chance to de-stress and unwind, thus taking care of another part of my goals.
I still want to lose 12 pounds. I'm not really willing to give up on that, it's my little personal goal, and I really want to get there. If I can't get there, I will forgive myself and move on, but right now, I am believing in my body's ability to do this and my determination to meet with my friend, exercise!
The last part was to make friends and be supportive, hmmm, on that account I'm sure there is still progress to be made. I'm not so good at that, even though I'd love to be. I'm certain I'm not doing it often enough to be effective in being supportive. Sometimes I don't feel like I really know what's expected of me and I'm much better at lurking than supporting. All my team-mates make it look so effortless...( anywho, you can sure tell where my insecurities lie!) On the flip side, I have made some friends. Not all goals met, but a very decent start!

For the 12 weeks that I am a part of BLC, my goals are 1. Lose 12 pounds, 2. learn to make a habit out of exercise, 3. change my attitude about exercise so as to make friends with it, and recognize that I love the way I feel AFTER I've done it, 4. make friends and be supportive. Really I want to de-stress, unwind, and enjoy the people, I think if I can do that I will have come a long way, and that's good enough for me!

I just did it, the brave thing, I just added pics of myself to use for before and after pics. The best is yet to come! The after pics, cause its so hard to commit to believing that there will be after pics. But it's ok, I'm better and a tad more confident than I was a year ago. Not quite as afraid to come out of hiding and post or be involved in a group, I think!
I've been lurking consistantly, reading and learning and changing the way I feel about me and my ability to make myself better this time.
I've also just joined the 28 Day Boot Camp Challenge Team, it makes me feel a little more commited instead of just involved. I even bought the app for my phone so I could be more involved. The better to lurk! :) AND I even put those pics on as I mentioned at the top!
Wish me luck!
P.s. How do I get my silly pics to behave and turn the right way?

OMgosh, I cannot believe how much I can want to make good decisions and want to eat everything at the same time. Feeling kinda down. Came down with swimmers-ear on Fri last week and just proceeded to blow it in the diet arena for a whole week. I didn't even record what I ate for a couple of days 'cause I didn't care to know how bad I'd blown it. I need to gather up all my courage and try again. Just because I can't do it perfectly doesn't mean it's time to give up. Easier said than done though. Ear is better, time to get back in the game and stop wallowing in my drug of choices, food.....Today again is the first day of the rest of my life, right?
