BLC 18 Begins!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Today is the official start of the BLC 18. I am excited to get back in the swing of things after my extended break. I fell so far off the wagon this time that it is crazy!!! Never again will I let myself get so far off track. I am ready and willing to put in the work I need too to make my goals happen. I know that I have a bad tendency to over reach so I am going to try to moderate myself this time since I know that going too hard too fast has burnt me out quickly in the past.

So here are my starting stats:

Intital weigh-in: 218.7

Left bicep: 13"
Bust: 47"
Waist: 43.5"
Hips: 48"
Left thigh: 26.5"

Not exactly pretty but I need a starting point if I am going to measure my progress.... So I have laid it all out there... Now let me tell you what I am going to do about it!

The most important thing is that I have created mini weight goals for myself.... Just a 5% loss with a maximum due date of 2 months for each mini goal. (which means I want to have reached my first mini goal and be halfway done with my second by the end of the current BLC round). Since each mini goal is aprox 10 lbs or so I thing this is pretty attainable. That is technically only a little over a pound a week.
Here are my mini goals:

SW: 218.7 1/11/12
5% Goal 1: 207.8
5% Goal 2: 197.4
5% Goal 3: 187.5
5% Goal 4: 178
5% Goal 5: 169
5% Goal 6: 160.5
5% Goal 7: 152.5
5% Goal 8: 145
5% Goal 9: 137.8
Final Goal: 135

They are also posted on my sparkpage under My Goals. I will update them there with the date I achieve each one. There will be no giving up this time!

My other goals for this round of the BLC are:

1. 150 fitness mins a week
2. 64 ozs of water a day
3. Participation (not perfection) in all challenges

Well I am getting tired so I am heading off here to take a bath and go to bed! Night all!
