BLC19 Challenge Goals

Friday, April 13, 2012

Well, Iím finally signing up for a biggest loser challenge and Iím so looking forward to the accountability & challenges. It just gets boring doing the same thing for a long time.

My goals for the next 14 weeks include:

emoticon working up to running 10k (from 5k) using the plan in Gallowayís Book on Running (I found this book second-hand and Iím really enjoying it. He encourages increasing endurance by making sure to run at a slow, relaxed pace while increasing distance. Maybe this time I wonít get an injury. I always want to push myself and go faster.) Iíll be running 3x per week.

emoticon continuing to work on doing the Cathe Friedrich STS using the Pyramid Rotation. Iíve just completed all three mesocycles and will ďpyramid downĒ by repeating mesocycles 2 & 1. My STS workouts happen 3x per week alternating with my running days.

emoticon drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day, which I think the BLC challenges will be helping me with. I like water, but just donít think of it.

emoticon tracking what I eat. Iím getting better at sticking to this already thanks to the BLC preliminary challenges!

emoticon enjoying not feeling overstuffed, actually making a point of noticing how much better it feels. It helps me to cut back on what Iím eating by focussing on other reasons than just weight loss.

emoticon improving my ďmental toughnessĒ by using skills Iím learning in Steve Sieboldís free Fat Loser videos. Some examples are: writing down 5 things Iím thankful for every day and recording any victories Iíve had (even small ones), as well as making a point of thinking like a fit person, not a fat person.

Iím ready for this challenge & Iím ready to break through this plateau!

Edited: I almost forgot to mention my weight goals. Iíd LOVE to lose 10lb, but would be quite happy with 5lb.

    emoticon plan! I'm moving from c25K to 10K Runner! I use walk/run intervals to help me travel, greatly reducing knee and ankle problems that have plagued me in the past..
