I'm going to inundate you with pics from my trip so beware
We left home on Wednesday at the crack of stupid (A.K.A 5:30 a.m.). We only stopped for a few potty breaks and then, in Armstrong, at the goat walk so Roo could play with the goats and feed the horses and I could have "homemade" ice cream and ginger cookies. (which I just remembered 5/6 are still in the car!). Since getting here, we've been swimming in two different lakes (A LOT), drove a pedal car, ate at two VERY good restaurants.... and lounged. Lots and lots of lounging. It's vacation, right?
hm, I've been trying to upload pics all day... something keeps resetting so I guess I move to plan B.
Alright, that should work.
I'll be updating daily so check back if you're interested.

So, my mission is to reflect on the round so far. My plan for the round was to maintain my weight (125) within a pound or two either way. So far, so good. I currently weigh 123.
Here's what I wrote when the round started.
The next 12 weeks I'm committing to the following goals for round 22:
For myself -
Strength training a MINIMUM of twice a week.
This is going pretty well. I was doing BodyPump two or three times a week. Then I started the MMA bootcamp and reduced it to once, if any. Unfortunately, I haven't done much since 06/30 when I hurt my calf. I've gone once. When I get home from my vacation, I'll get back at it.
Running a minimum of three times a week.
This one, no surprise, was an easy one. Until, again, 06/30. I had to take two weeks off but I've run twice with plans for more since 07/14.
Start making yoga a part of my cross training routine.
I've done yoga twice. Got to get there more regularly. There's no good reason not to. Unless you count laziness. I don't.
Stay hydrated. Make sure I'm drinking my 64 ounces a day.
I can think of only a handful of days that I missed my goal on this one. Most days, I actually get more.
Maintain my habit of tracking. Focus on being with my range 5/7 days a week.
I'm halfway on this one. My issue right now is my range keeps changing. (I switched to the fitness-driven calorie range option on Spark) I'm tracking. I'm not gaining a schwack of weight so I must be okay.
HIGH FIVES to me for consistency with running, tracking, and all the other stuff that I'm doing good on.
BUTT KICK for not doing more yoga.
A few more tweaks and I'll be happy with everything. Overall,

"What is your biggest challenge this weekend with food? What is your plan for staying in control?"
Almost every Friday, like clockwork, I start to veer off track... take out food, chocolate, skipped workouts.. you know the deal. The idea is, I can get back at it on Monday. No harm done. So, here's my plan... be more realistic. Harm is done when you cheat all weekend. I'll track all weekend, get my 5 full servings of freggies, avoid my high calorie drink treats and do my workouts.
Simple enough, right?

So, here I am working on my fifth round of BLC. One of the challenges this weekend was to create a "Staples" grocery list and store it on your phone. Since I'm just the kind of person who will accidentally delete important stuff, or will have it deleted by a certain toddler who shall remain nameless, I'm putting it in this blog along with a few other things I'd like to keep.
Baby bel cheese
Whole wheat bread
Granola bars (Nature Valley or Kashi)
Lean ground beef
Tuna (low sodium packed in water)
Fresh seasonal fruit
Healthy frozen dinners for "emergencies"
Another "challenge" for the weekend is to plan my meals for three days. This isn't always easy BUT, with the above list, it is easier...
Breakfasts will continue to be my usual cheerios mix and a cup of coffee.
I have two snacks a day which include: almonds, baby bel, greek yogurt, granola bars and a piece (or two) of fruit. At the moment, my fridge has grapes, strawberries, oranges and apples.
Lunch will either be a sandwich and soup or salad depending on how my morning has gone and what kind of salads the store has when I go shopping tomorrow night.
Tuesday - salmon, rice and vegetables
Friday - pork chops, pasta, vegetables
Saturday - BBQ'd burgers & salad
And that's all for me tonight... I'm hoping to score a schwack of points for this BINGO points but I'm not going to get the card full. I'm disappointed because I didn't stay as on track as I'd hoped but it is what is is. I should have been paying closer attention to some things and I let myself veer... I will get back on track and move on.
