    Seeing is believing with your exercise you do a great job and you have more negatives than positives over the week that is what counts. emoticon

Spreading some Spark!

Saturday, August 31, 2013

One of my challenges for this weekend is to share a "secret" of success. Here's mine:

Secrets of Success

Use Everthying!

This can't be said enough: use EVERYTHING!
Track your nutrition, water, freggies and exercise.
Join the teams. JOIN THE BLC! Look at your spark summary calendar. Blog your good days and bad days so you can reach out for help OR help someone who is reaching out. Taking a multivitamin daily but you're getting forgetful? Use the planner to send you a reminder every morning.
Explore all the options. Use them to your advantage. It really works!

You know what I love most about the spark calendar....GOLD STARS!

Recapping BLC22 and gazing forward....

Friday, August 23, 2013

At the beginning of BLC22, we were challenged to set up some goals for ourselves. Mine were:
emoticon Strength training a MINIMUM of twice a week.
emoticon Running a minimum of three times a week.
emoticon Start making yoga a part of my cross training routine.
emoticon Stay hydrated. Make sure I'm drinking my 64 ounces a day.
emoticon Maintain my habit of tracking. Focus on being with my range 5/7 days a week.

Reading over my list, I think it's safe to say that I met most of my goals. ST, running, hydration and tracking emoticon

emoticon Adding hot yoga? Well, I've been there three times. That's hardly making it a habit BUT it's a start. I just have to organize my Fridays better. (that's my favourite night to go) And maybe open myself up to going Tuesday after I run.
emoticon In range 5/7 days? Hard to say. I've been diligent about tracking but I also added the feature that links my fitness and nutrition tracker and that messed up my goal calendar. No more gold stars to count. I'm maintaining my weight. I'll call that a win.

Alright! enough looking back, time to look forward.
emoticon Identify at least one thing you did right in the last 12 weeks.
emoticon Well, I think I've already identified quite a few but let's add in the fact that I've become more consistent with my freggie consumption, too.

emoticon Evaluate this round (#22), what is the one thing you want to improve/change?
emoticon I would really like to shift my focus from the scale to the measuring tape. I've gotten away from taking measurements and I know it's good for my psyche.

emoticon What is your goal for between rounds?
emoticon Basically, I'd like to keep reaching my current goals as listed above. Now that I'm going back to work again, I'll have fatigue and other excuses to fall back on. It'd be nice to win the fight against them.

emoticon What is the plan for reaching your goal between rounds?
emoticon From now until September 25th, I'll be working with my team to maintain our current levels of fitness and nutritional mindfulness. The big picture sees all of us starting round 23 at the same weight as we are now. (or lower).
I'll check in with the Outlaws everyday.
Schedule my workouts and do my best to keep to that schedule.
Ensure I get enough sleep so that I have the energy my body needs to continue working as hard as I want it to.

Easy peasy, right? Especially when my biggest fan is THIS cute:
