BLC19 Plan

Monday, April 30, 2012

I've already set my goals down ...

1- I WILL get to exercise class 5 days a week. (Kickboxing 3 days a week and signing up for something new this weekend to start Monday :)

emoticon Good news!! I am on track here. Today is the first day of the new ST class.

2- I WILL participate in each and every challenge this Round.

emoticon Good news!! On track here, too. I've joined in the TNT, daily challenges and (as you can see by the blog here) the Weekend challenge so far.

3- I WILL be streaking for the 12 weeks.

emoticon Still on track here. Really glad I added this as a goal. Twice this week I would have blown off exercising if I wasn't streaking, but I made it a point to get at least 20 minutes in each and every day.

4- I WILL track my food every day.

emoticon I love getting back to basics here. I had fallen away and, interestingly enough, it was right around the time I started putting weight back on. ABS are made in the kitchen NOT the gym !!

5- I WILL blog twice a week.

emoticon I'll have to keep an eye on this. This is tough for me. I am not typically an active blogger.

6- I WILL get in at least 15K steps each day.

emoticon Not so good so far. I was over 15K 2 of 5 days only. I was over 10K 4 of 5 days.

So, what things do I need to add?

emoticon Tracking my CICO differential. This will give me a reason to blog. And also keeps me focused on bruning the right number of calories, not just getting in exercise minutes.

emoticon New recipes. Loving the Kale chips I tried this week. Going to try black bean burgers this week, too.

What do I need to continue?

emoticon Fresh veggies cut up in bite-size portions for ready snacking.

emoticon Starting my day with 16oz of water as soon as I get up. This has really helped keeping up with my water intake.

What should I stop doing?

emoticon Eating out. As I look back to when I was at my lowest weight here ... It was before I was eating out frequently. From now on, it is only Breakfast after church on Sundays.

emoticon Weighing myself more than once a week.

    : ABS are made in the kitchen NOT the gym !! Love it...You sound like a tough gym

Cool there will be more blogs yah! Never tried Kale chips but stay away from spinach chips...yuck. Wish I could do this 12 wk thing with you, but something in my foot cracked yesterday -just while walking...I think its the high heel shoes, but I was limping today. I know its weird but true. Tomorrow night is class night and I have to look good to make adrien sorry, which means I have to wear the painful heels again:( heating pad on foot now- hopefully tomorrow will be better and I can join the 12 week streak by thing this weekend! emoticon

    Great plan! You can do it! I hope you enjoy your ST class. I've taken that at my gym before and it's much more fun to do that in a group. At ours you use a step bench and light weights. MY first time I didn't think I was doing anything but getting my heart rate up but the next day I was so sore, proof that it works! I'm with you on the scale and not weighing more than once a week. As you know weight changes from day to do and there have been times where I've stuck to the plan for a few days and no change, which frustrates me.

    Great plan and goals. You can do this.

I will have to try the water first thing to see if that helps me.
