Summer BL Challenge in Review

Thursday, August 23, 2012

I really need to get in the habit of posting blogs, they just aren't my thing as I've said before but I need to do this one to complete Week 10 of the BL Summer Challenge.

Let me say, first of all, that my Turquoise Titan Team is an awesome group of ladies that have encouraged me all along the way. My goal was to lose 10 lbs. and I lost 11.2 (I'll take every little bit that I can)!! I did fall down on getting all the cardio and strength training that I wanted to but I did try to do as much as I could each week. I'll sure plan to step that up in the Fall Challenge.

I can say this time when we went to our cabin in the North Georgia mountains, I lost weight instead of gaining. Every time I would think about eating something unhealthy I would remember the goals I set to choose healthy foods over junk. There were times that I did give in (a couple of special occasions) but I also didn't beat myself up about it.

So here's to the Fall Challenge that will be underway shortly. Looking forward to what all is in store for me!!!

Thank you all for your support, encouragement and love! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Awesome job for Sparking out of town - traveling can be hard, but you're able to keep it in perspective (I need to follow your lead on this!). Keep sparking on!

Glad you met your goal for summer challenge.
I don't like blogging either because I don't know what to say and then I feel dumb after writing something.
Looking forward to Fall Challenge with the Titans.
