I'm in my 2nd BLC!! I am a Crimson Butterfly this time around. Part of our challenge for this first week is to write a blog for our goals. So here we go!
My goal for this challenge is to lose 12.2#, which will put me at 325#. I will do this by doing a minimum of 3 things:
1. Track my calories daily and stay within range as best as I can.
2. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
3. Exercise at least 20 minutes 5 days per week.
I will work towards this goal and plan on reaching it by the end of the BLC in 12 weeks.

I was just looking at my weight report for the past year. I am exactly the same weight today that I was 1 week shy of a year ago. In that time, I have gained 25# reaching my high weight of 347.6# on Sept 10, 2012. Since Sept,I have lost that 25# again. Now I just have to keep working at that downward trend, and not spend another year making no progress!

Sooo.... today I was doing my WATP video. I was feeling pretty good about myself, so I told myself I would try to do all 4 miles, which I haven't done before. I usually do mile 1 and 4 (both 15 minute miles, mile 4 with a resistance band), occassionally I'll do mile 3 also (12 minute mile). I was all psyched up to do all 4 this time!!
Well, I was just a bit into mile 2, and doing double side steps at a pretty fast pace, when my 3 year old (who was sitting on the floor behind me and to the side a bit) decided that she wanted to reach forward and pet the cat, who was walking in front of me. Boom, I tripped over her and went flying, and landed HARD on my right knee. I made sure my daughter was ok (she was fine, just a bit shook up for a couple minutes) and then I sat there maybe 3 - 4 minutes until the pain subsided a bit and I was sure I hadn't done some serious damage. Then I got up, rewound my dvd to the point where I fell, and continued on to finish my full 4 miles! Whoo hoo!
But now anyway, this afternoon/evening my knee is really sore/tender and I'm limping pretty good and it's stiffened up a bit. I'm still pretty sure I just bunged it up good and didn't do any horrible damage, but I have a feeling it will be sore for a while. Good thing tomorrow is a super busy day for me so I was planning on taking a rest day from working out anyway. I think I'll just ice it when I can and take it easy.

I haven't posted a blog in a while, so thought I'd do just a quick one! I've been doing ok with my weight-loss efforts, but could do better. So far since September, I have lost 19#. I need to get that number going down a bit faster!! I'd like to get to 40# lost by my birthday (just over 2 months from now). If I work hard, I know I can do it.
So today I've done a 50 minute WATP video (3 miles), am working on my 8th glass of water, and have stayed in my calorie range today. Whoo hoo! Now I just need to keep it up.

I am a Scarlet Starlet in the BLC #21! Yay!!
Here is my pre-start challenge blog.
Size - Bust 58", Waist 55", Hips 64", Thigh 34", Upper arm 16.5"
Compose: 12-week plan - I want to get back into tracking and staying in my calorie ranges. My downfall in this area is not having a plan, and then just grabbing something convenient after work for supper... which usually means high-calorie and not nutritious. I will pre-plan my meals and make sure my shopping list is ready to go by Sunday each week, so I have healthy meals available. Also, I don't drink nearly enough water. I will bring 2 water bottles with me so that I can always have 1 chilling while I'm drinking from the other one. (I'm one of those that doesn't like the taste of water and can only drink it if it is ice cold!) I will schedule in exercise like an appointment instead of just saying I'll do it sometime before bed, because then it doesn't get done!
Reward - each night that I do my tracking, water, and exercise, I will reward myself with some "me" time where I can play on the computer or work on my puzzle book. If I stick to my goals throughout the 12 week challenge, I will reward myself with a haircut.
Snapshots: I've tried to post my before pics in a previous blog, and for some reason they won't upload. I'll keep trying, or maybe just try posting them on my sparkpage.
OK, still couldn't get them to work. I ended up uploading them to photobucket, and here's the links. I'm currently 335.8#.
