    Thanks for your comment on my BLC "gap" blog. Thank you for the reminder that 4 lbs lost is better than a gain. Every little bit counts I see. You have done well!!!

The End of another BLC Round - A look back

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Cannot believe yet another round of BLC is about to end?! Where have the last 12 weeks gone!?! The kids are back in school, their summer is over. It was supposed to be a do nothing summer but it sure seems like it was busier than ever even though we didn't go anywhere. No vacations and not trips.

As I look back on this round I see lots of things I think I could improve on but before I get to the negative, let's talk about what I did right:
1 Tracking - I did a really good job at tracking this round. Food and Exercise. Sure I missed days here and there but typically I cannot stand to track and so I just don't. Or at least not for long.
2 I lost weight! I hit the very top of my maintenance range! While I am not ready to be put on MoM, I am pretty happy about getting to the top of those five pound range.

What could I improve or change?
1 ST - I go from really liking it to hating it. I think my numbers show that this round I pretty much hated it. LOL I have no idea why but I sure can improve on it a whole lot!

Looking ahead, next round of BLC doesn't start until Sept 25th so if you fail to plan, then of coruse you plan to fail. So What is MY plan for between rounds?
Well to NOT take a break. Continue doing what I am doing and tracking everyday!
My goal is to lose a half pound each week and if I am successful I will start the round as MoM!
How am I going to do that you ask? Well I have been loving being on my bike the last couple weeks 5-6 days each week, eating an 80/20 paleo diet and tracking everything!
Tomorrow I am going to get started on this plan by deciding how many miles on the bike I will ride each week. I have already made and bought a complete menu for this week that I will follow!

If any of my great friends out there in SP-land would like to join me in BLC 23 please let me know and I will let you know where to go to sign up!

this coming week I will being posting my weekly weigh-ins for this round!

    I'm in! Sounds like you did a great job this round. Yay for getting to your range weight! I hear you on strength training. Remember, my hatred of ST became the team joke the round before last.

"I don't have time" and 5 other lame excuses not to exercise

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

great blog post from
it goes right along with the blog I posted on Monday.

"Everyone who isnít active has an excuse why they donít workout, but theyíre all just lame reasons that say ďI donít want to.Ē"

What are your thoughts on this artilcle??

This statement stands out to me, "If, however, you have one job and can find time to watch even a little TV, mindlessly surf the Internet, spend extra time that you really donít need to at a life-sucking job, or refuse to look for those little holes in your schedule that you know you could find if you really tried, then whatís your excuse?"

I waste a lot of time doing the above yet can come up with excuses to not exercise. I have no excuse for it, well I have excuses but in reality I could find the time. Thanks for the link to the article!
