Dear Outlaws:

Monday, July 29, 2013

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

    I printed it out as a "keeper" too - great quick workout (if you do it once) - course today I had to dot it several times. I had forgotten how hard real sit ups are. I have gotten into the habit of just crunches - gonna have to add some back into my routine.

Penticton so far....

Sunday, July 21, 2013

I'm going to inundate you with pics from my trip so beware emoticon
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.

    great pictures...was that some kind of skate park too? Very pretty up there! Oh and we peddled one of those carts a few weeks ago and I hated it. Way harder then it looks and it was kind of crowded where we were so hard to maneuver. Glad you had a good time!!!

BLC22 Weekend Challenge 7 - R is for Reflect.

Friday, July 19, 2013

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 -
emoticon 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.

emoticon 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.

emoticon 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.

emoticon 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.

emoticon 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, emoticon

BLC22 Weekend Challenge 3

Friday, June 21, 2013

"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?

    I used to be a victim of weekends.. Friday evening 'release' from the high tension week of stress, time to relax its the weekend RIGHT... ummm yah... and then come Sunday I was a bloated, lethargic, crumby feeling mess... then comes what I called the 'Monday fluffies'.
At some point I realized what I was doing to my poor body by allowing this vicious cycle to continue to happen. Just as I got it detoxed and back on track, it would be the weekend again.
It was because I was sports an all or nothing mindset. During the week I was ON routine, perfect diet, perfect gym attendance, killed my week... and then the weekend had no regimen, after-all I should be able to relax right? NO.
It wasnt until I started realizing I DO need routine and regimen EVERY DAY if I wanted success, that my weekends could be FUN and relaxed but I also needed to east well and NOT OVER-indulge did I get results. (-: I am sure my body is much happier and no more monday fluff-fest! (-:
You got this!! Susie*
