BLC Weekend challenge #11

Friday, December 06, 2013

Yikes! Only two weekends left in this round of the BLC (23). Good thing I'm reaching most of my goals or I'd be panicking right now....

Part of the challenge for this week is:
S - Strategize. Make a meal and exercise plan for the upcoming week.

I've had a pretty good plan for this round so I'm sticking with that.

-- 5/7 days with a negative or zero CICO
-- continue running 3 days a week
-- strength train consistently - 2x a week.
-- yoga
I also want to tweak my sodium levels & work towards improvement. I'm having difficulties staying under the 2300 mg that's recommended but I'm closer to average than I've ever been.

S - (Mon 2nd) Sink into the rewards of having gotten over the feast and its aftermath in a healthy fashion - Post your three most helpful things from the last week.

! - (Tues 3rd) What is something you are most excited about for the upcoming week that will improve your health - post and reflect!

The three most helpful "things" from last week were my son, my hubby and my running buddies. My son and hubby took care of Roo while I hit the gym, did yoga or went for a run. They also kept her in the mornings so that I didn't have to yoink her out in the cold and snow. My running buddies gave me something to be accountable for: they were waiting for me at the gym, in the yoga studio and on the pathways.

Some of the things that I'm most excited about in this coming week are:
The Santa Shuffle 5 km run on Saturday - there's a team of 21 of us (maybe more) doing it together. It won't be about speed or anything competitive. It's just about putting on a pair of antlers, hanging out with friends, getting a cute medal and scoring a Lindt/Lindor chocolate advent calendar.
On Sunday, we're meeting some friends and going to Heritage Park -
Other than that, I think this may be the weekend we put up our Christmas tree.

N - (Sat 30th) No Defeat! (What can you do TODAY to get back on track - exercise? foods?) what did you do to stay EXTRA healthy today.

emoticon Well, how did I miss this one?! So I got up early on a Saturday morning, packed a schwack of healthy snacks and a good lunch and my running buddies and I went snow shoeing. Even at Montana's I picked the meal that wouldn't be too sodium dense AND was still yummy (Bison burger w/side salad) and good for me. emoticon

K - (Sun 1st) Kinetics - have FUN with your family or yourself or your pets or friends by doing something unique that moves your body.

Running this morning. Yoga tonight. Neither are unique, though. I'll have to find something to do in the meantime, I suppose.

    Bison burger, yummy!! You can never go wrong with a salad. Good for you!! The parade is Friday. I will take pics! Just have to figure out where Bella stuck the SD card to get them off the camera. The cord is in Iowa LOL. If I can't figure it out (which I already tried) Adam next door will show me. Have a great Monday!

A - (Fri 29th) Aftermath - post your favorite HEALTHY leftover recipe (from any holiday)

Hm, the only think that I can think of is a hot turkey sandwich. One slice of bread, not two, low salt brown (package) gravy...
I don't really do anything special with leftovers.

    I miss those sandwiches. I'm going to have to find the perfect gluten free bread recipe and start making it.

As for leftovers, we just reheat and eat them usually. Nothing special.

H - (Thurs 28th) Help yourself, (but not too much) - strategy to keep eating under control at the big meal (and post if you have time)

Alright, I don't have to worry about a huge turkey dinner BUT my daytime eating, especially salty foods, has been an issue for a couple of weeks. Today, I will only eat during "meal" times or, if I don't, I'll do 10 Jumping Jacks for every bite I take. (Thanks Suezette)

I'll add my CICO to this entry at the end of the day.

    That's a great strategy and a bit comical. Glad you have a sense of humor - good luck staying away from those salty snacks. Oh how delicious they can be!! emoticon
