B - BLOG/JOURNAL Sit down every day of this Challenge and either make your plan or anylize your day/Progress. Keep your FOCUS and Decide what you deserve a pat on the back for, and what still might need a little tweaking. 5 pts per day
L - LIST YOUR CALORIES, If you Bite it, You Write It; If you sip it, script it; Every Nibble, be SURE to scribble...lol, you get the idea. We all can get Dieters amnesia. Though when we write it down, we can not forget...and it will help to hold us Accountable...It will give us an idea of our food patterns and areas that we may be able to improve upon. It let's us KNOW Where we stand on the day. 5 pts per day
C - Cardio/Strength Choose either or do both...Why not do both at the same time...This is YOUR Challenge...Do what YOU can. Work at your own Fitness level...but think of this Wonderful New Challenge and WHY you are on this Journey and Work it out...5 pts for every 20 minutes up to 15 pts per day
+ Bonus 5 pts for Completing All Three Levels. You do NOT have to max out the "C" to get the bonus.
Perfect Score 30 per day MAX
This challenge will run Friday (4/15) through Monday (4/18).
Your mission this weekend is simple. On Monday I want you to report in on one of these things:
A. Total cardio calories burned. (Make it a BIG number)
B. Total fitness minutes reached. (Make it a BIG number)
C. List of new Personal Records in things like pushups, situps, pull ups, run times, etc.

So our Wisteria Wolves challenge this week/weekend is to post our goals for BLC16, with these guidelines:
1st goal must be food related.
2nd goal must be exercise related.
3rd goal must not be related to food or exercise.
1) I will track my food EVERY day!
*I've gotten out of the habit the past month or so, but as of yesterday I'm back on track with tracking, and I intend to keep it consistent.
2) I will exercise EVERY DAY for at least 10 minutes
*I let that drop off the radar with The Split - work has been so insane I just couldn't even think about it. But it really helped me feel better on those 12 hour days that I was doing SOME kind of exercise - I got in one set of wallies (wall pushups) already tonight, yay!
3) I will spend at least 5-10 minutes every day in daily Reiki self-practice
*I got the Level 1 Reiki attunment at Sirius Rising last summer, and intend to take the Level 2 class this year. Our instrutor recommended we take time every day to center ourselves with Reiki, and I really think that would do a lot to help my stress levels. Plus it's just good for you to keep your energy balanced anyway. All part of getting all around healthy, right?
Part TWO of the challenge:
Take a picture of yourself NOW :) Have it in the blog with these goals...so at the end of the twelve weeks we are go back and see if there are some changes :)
I JUST took these on my phone. :) Note - I'm not quite at the point I'm comfortable tucking my shirt in yet, but I'm getting there. I AM pretty happy at how loose the shirts are now though. You will also notice my GINORMOUS water bottle that I keep by my desk at work - it's my goal to down that whole thing by the time I have my break at 4am every night, and then I have a smaller one I finish off the rest of the morning. The more I drink at work, the less I get up to potty when I should be sleeping.
Alright...get ready...get set...GO!

What did you do this weekend for Mission 15?!?!
Nada - I've not been able to do much with any challenges the past two weeks or so. But I'm BACK IN THE SADDLE as of RIGHT NOW!
Pick two songs. Everytime you hear those two songs this weekend, you owe me 4 minutes of cardio. I recommend turning up the radio and dancing to that song, even if you are in the middle of mopping the kitchen floor. Time to have some fun. Time to dance when no one is looking. Word?
Hmmmm, I don't listen to the radio except in the car much - at home 'Yote usually either has some news show or other on the TV, one of his G4 favorites (he's an avid "Attack of the Show" and "XPlay" watcher), or he's got Firesign Theater playing on my computer while he wanders around 15 Century Rome shivving Templars (or riding the old west - he FINALLY started playing the Red Dead Redemption I got him for Christmas this week). SO, I guess my best bet on this one is to do my GOYBAD videos every day when I post 'em to the Wisteria Wolves team. Considering how often I post then and don't DO them, I should totally put my money where my mouth is there.
Wear your workout clothes around the house one evening instead of whatever you normally wear in the evenings. See if just wearing your clothes around doesn't or does make you want to drop and do some crunches, or take off on a walk or a run. Do it as a social experiment.
Teehee, I can totally do that.
Decide what your power snack will be this week.
Power snack? Hmmmmm... Okay, I've got a bunch of apples that need eating, so that works!
Set a cardio minute goal and do one of the strength workouts that you found at the beginning of B2W!
I'm going to set my goal at 90 minutes - considering I have to divide that up between Wednesday and Thursday I figure that's a good number.
Finish up a little bit of spring cleaning!
That I DEFINITELY need to do, though I'd really been planning it for later in the weekend. But since I work Saturday night again, getting it done early is a good thing. ON IT!

If you didn't see it, I posted a link to my first photo blog as part of yesterday's blog here. I'm specifically and intentionally posting them on my livejournal, as a tool to get me back to posting there regularly (I've sorely neglected my LJ over the past 9 months I've been active on SP). If you've got a livejournal - feel free to friend me and comment over there. But I didn't want my spark buds to feel left out, so I'm going to repost the links here.
