First off, I know I am BLC this, and BLC that. But this one if for points and I gotta do it and represent the Sassy Sheriff's.
I'm going to cross enemy lines to give a thank you and a shout out to my girl Susan from the Mighty Mocha Hunters. Her blog of goals blew me away. She taught me that goals need to be specific and something I can measure to show that I did or did not measure up. I can't simply say I'm going to eat LESS or exercise more, I need numbers, so thanks Susan for showing me how it's done!
Goals for 12 week BLC 20:
*Lose 18 pounds. That is fine and good, but how am I going to get there?
*By eating no more than 1550 calories each day. If weight loss stalls like it has in the past, I may try calorie cycling, but I am going to hope that it doesn't come to that. I have been in range eating 1650ish, and that has gradually been slipping to 1700. That is not okay. 1550, end of story.
*The Sheriff's roll with 360 fitness minutes a week. That threw me for a loop for a second, but it can VERY easily be done. So my goal is 360 minutes per week, no excuses.
Ideal breakdown of exercise minutes:
Sat, Sun, Mon = workdays. 45 minutes walking = 2 miles.
Mon,Wed,Fri = TNT - 20 minutes.
Tue = 30 minutes of cardio.
Wed, Th, Fri = 45 minutes cardio.
*Water! Water! Water!
This was a habit, a great habit that was like second nature to me for the last 4 months at least. I don't know what is up all of a sudden, but it's not happening as easily. So you know what that means, time to TRACK/MEASURE the water again. Yep, a little annoying but gotta do what I gotta do.
Over these 12 weeks, I want to, scratch that, I WILL push myself to the limits, for myself and for my team. I WILL get back to doing the things that got me to where I am, but with an extra KICK to it. This challenge is just what I needed, and I am happy to be a part of it. This challenge may very well be the tool that gets me SUPER close to Onederland, and that is something I am so excited about!
