BLC 26 half way

Monday, November 03, 2014

As I look back over the last 6 weeks and look forward over the next 6 weeks I wonder what I have done right, and what needs to change going forward.

I think my biggest problem is that I give 80 %, I exercise 80 % of the time, my effort is 80 %. I eat right about 80% of the time. All this is great if I want to maintain, the problem is that I don't want to maintain I want to improve.

I struggle with trying to convince myself that my weight isn't really that bad and if I stay the same weight it will be fine. I know in my heart of hearts that this isn't true. I don't feel healthy nor do I look healthy. It could be far worse than it is but it could also be better.

I have incorporated many healthy changes in my life over the past few years but it's not enough, I need to start giving a better effort on the little things to see changes. I need to focus on the last 6 weeks of this BLC and make some more changes.

My plan is to focus on the here and now, focus on my muscles during a work out, focus on my food when I am eating it. Focus on myself. emoticon

    That extra 20 percent is not that much more than you are doing now but the success result is 100 percent! I see success in YOUR future!

    Karen just take it one step at a time. I think so many of us think we have to be perfect from the start. Baby steps will get you there.

BLC 26 expectations

Monday, September 22, 2014

My expectations for BLC 26

I expect to come along side others and have them come along side me as we support each other in striving for a healthy lifestyle.

Sure, healthy life style is a very serious issue but BLC will make it fun. I love the week end challenges, the LCW, TNT .

BLC takes something that can feel overwhelming and unattainable and make it fun to do.

It's time to get consistent again. Looking forward to the New Year and tweaking my habits.
My goal is to lose 14lbs in 2014, I have more wt than that to lose but I think that is a very realistic goal.

Time will tell

last week BLC 22

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Goal between rounds:

Continue my consistency, maintain my weight or lose a lb. I don't have big losses or quick ones, I am slow and steady.

My plan to obtain this goal: Continue tracking food and exercise. I am joining the eat up, get slim challenge on the last day of BLC. I tend to still feel hungry even after I have eaten my alloted calories for the day. I think I need to tweak my choices and se if I can do better

One thing right in the last 12 weeks: CONSISTENCY, if I fell off the wagon I didn't sat off, I got right back on. I read articles and blogs and success stories on Spark People. It all helps to keep me focused.

What do I want to improve or change:

The next round I hope to be more active on the chat thread. I would check in almost daily and leave some short quick comment. I need to get to know people more and encourage others more.
