Hello Sparkpeople wonderful friends and random blogs readers (I do that too :P).
Today was the last weigh-in of BLC 24, a 12-weeks weightloss challenge. And, like you might have understand with my blog title, I reached my goal for the challenge.
When I registered in january, I was just starting my primal diet, and I didn't know how it would turn out. So I chose to be conservative with my goal, setting it for a 10 pounds loss over the lenght of the challenge. I was just getting back in the swing of things and I wanted to make sure I could reach it, in order to be successful instead of failing, right at the re-start of my weightloss journey.
But after 5 weeks, I had reach that easy goal. And I felt confident enough to go for something bigger. So I decide to aim for 20 pounds.
Last week, I gained a little, and I need to lose a little over 3 pounds in the last week to reach it, I was already talking to myself to be proud no matter what, etc.
I usually peek on the scale once or twice during the week. This week I didn't. The result on the scale this morning was a complete surprise. And a good one!
My BLC starting weight was 223.4 lb. My finish weight is 202 lb. A 21.4 lb loss!!!
Thanks to all the Mochas for your support and friendship. And to everyone passing on my page, leaving comments and goodies.
We are now entering the break between two BLC rounds and I must stay focus. I want to be under 200 for Easter so I have 3 pounds to lose in two weeks, gotta keep pushing.
Have a nice day!

Here's my schedule from today until april 3th.
I work monday-friday 7:30-4:00.
Tonight: Choir practice
Tomorrow: Zumba + singing practice for a friend's mom's funeral
Thursday: Prayer gatering (in the style of Taizé if you know about it).
Friday: Quick shopping for the weekend ahead, leaving for Sherbrooke (1h30 drive).
Saturday: Service for my boyfriend's grandmother, she passed today (that's why we need to go to Sherbrooke). Leave Sherbrooke at 11AM, get back home(1h30 drive), then go straight to my friend's mom's funeral (at 2:30) to sing because she asked me to. Then, leave after the funeral and drive about 2h to get to my other friend's cabin, because we had a party planned that weekend! Enjoy my evening!
Sunday: Leave from the cabin at unknown time, pass by the office to get my training material, drop boyfriend at home, take my suitcase and leave for Québec city (3h drive) to check in my hotel room.
Monday: I'm in Québec city to give a training, get back home after the training.
Tuesday: Choir practice
Thursday: Crash on the couch and never get up ever again!
It will be a real struggle for the diet AND the exercise. I'll do my best, because I don't want to screw the last week of BLC!!!

Why is it when I get something under control, something else just go flying.
I can't balance nutrition, exercise and sleeping it seems.
I feel like I can only pick 2 out of three! Lately, the sleeping is the one I left out.
I've been super good all week with my workout and what I ate, but went to bed almost everynight past 11h30!!! For this lady who needs to be out the appartment by 6h30, that's too late!
I guess that will be my challenge for next week!
Also, I'm gonna push really hard to be in the top 10 for this round of BLC. As of week 9, I'm in 13th spot!

I know, it's a shocking revelation! Working out feels good! Who knew!!!
Well I knew. But I forgot about it. Now that I'm working on my workout routine, I'm rediscovering the good feeling of sweat and sore muscles.
Today, I did a 40 minutes kenpo/kickboxing video and that was a lot of fun. After that, I did 30 minutes of arms and shoulders ST training.
I have stickers on my calendar everyday since monday and I want to keep this up.
A big one if I stick to my program (doing cardio when planned and ST when planned as well) or a small one if I get at least 20 min like a walk or a short cardio workout.
Feel free to ask me how are my stickers going if you don't ear about them in a while LOL.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Yes, I like cute things.
Yes, I like rewards.
Yes, I'm a big kid!
So I got me some stickers! Isn't it ridiculous that I'm super excited by some cute picture with glue on the back LOL.
Anyway, I had a calendar from the Scouts I wasn't using (they don't sell cookies here, but calendar, way less delicious, but not fatening!). I bought cute, cute stickers, and I'm gonna stick'em on the calendar everyday I work out 20 minutes at least. If I do the workout I had plan (see my previous blog), I'll put a big sticker and when I just do anyother workout for minimum 20 minutes, I'll put a small one.
If it works for little kids, I don't see why it can't work for big kids!
Here they are:
