My Vision Board June2014

Friday, June 13, 2014

I created this vision board for the remainder of BLC25.

With it I remind myself:
I am an athlete!
I need to eat healthy food that fuels my body with power!
Small steps each day with get me to my goal!
I want to be a runner!
Time with family can be fitness time (that is what the bike picture is for).
Sleep is important!
When I fit in my workout, I am in a good mood!

PAWSE - week 3

Friday, May 16, 2014

Plan/Prepare - I'm planning my food for the day in the morning and trying hard to stick to my plan. The only upcoming event I have is my friend's daughter's graduation party and I am making a big salad for it, so if there aren't many healthy options there, at least I will have that.

Act - I've been working at getting more consistent with my tracking. This weekend's challenge should help with that.

Write - I had a .8 loss this week. It wasn't the 1.4lbs. I was looking for, but it was a loss. I did have 2 rests days last week instead of 1 and did make a few less than healthy food choices.

Set - My scale goal is to lose 1.4lbs. this week.
My non-scale goal is to pre-track my food Friday - Tuesday

Execute - I did a 42 minute 5K with run/walk intervals.

BLC25 week 1 fitness test

Monday, May 05, 2014

Part of our first weekend challenge was to take a fitness test. These are my results:

1 mile: 12.09 min. (this really impressed me, especially since I walked about a quarter of it. I apparently have a fast running time. I just don't have the stamina to maintain it

1 minute of push ups: 25 modified push-ups (this one aggravates me, because you would think after so many years of exercising, I would be able to do regular push-ups)

1 min. crunches: 38 crunches (this one I felt fine with)

3 min. step ups then take pulse: 120bpm? (I think. I had trouble counting my pulse, so I'm not sure this is accurate.)

I know, what's with the upper arm strength? I think 25 is pretty good, though.

BLC25 Goals

Monday, May 05, 2014

I let myself slide over the last 6 months, so my primary goals for BLC25 are:

1. Get back to my goal weight of 135 which will require a loss of 15 pounds.

2. Re-establish a regular exercise routine.

3. Regain control over my eating habits.

4. Learn ways to work in my healthy habits when other things try to steal my time.

PAWSE - Week 1

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Plan/Prepare - Grocery shopping was done yesterday, so there are lots of fresh freggies in the house. I know tomorrow is Turbulent Twists and tomorrow is also my gym day, so I will plan the exercises and draw the cards tonight, so that I can just go to the gym with my workout list (I'd look pretty silly with a deck of cards at the gym. There don't seem to be any parties or events planned this week, so I think I am pretty safe food wise.

Act - All nutrition and exercise is tracked for today. I got in my workout even though I was a little tired when I got home from work (and it was a tough one).

Write - Well I must have done something write last week to lose 2 pounds. I think it was being more consistent with my exercise last week.

Set - My scale goal is to lose 1.4lbs. this week.
My non-scale goal is to track all week.

Execute - I was really wishy-washy about what exercise I wanted to do today. In the end, I decided to drag out my old EA Active game. I did a 20 minute circuit set on hard and it kicked my butt! emoticon
