BLC 15 Reflection

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Wow, time flies. I have been reluctant to post because honestly I'm not a big fan of blogging. Well BLC 15 is over and I will definitely be joining the next one. This was a true test in commitment and consistency. I set out to lose a bunch of weight but in the end didn't even make a dent in that goal. So it was a true test of my mental willingness to not completely bow out of the challenge as I stepped on the scale week after week only to be disappointed.

The up-side is that I have definitely gotten fitter. Around halfway through the challenge I started the Insanity workout and did it continuously for 3 weeks. Then I decided to do the DVD once or twice a week and continue to group classes I love so much because I was getting bored with Insanity everyday. At the beginning of the challenge I did 32 modified pushups in 1 minute and today I did 41. I also did 31 crunches in 1 minute 2 months ago, today I did 56! I feel much fitter climbing stairs, walking, and keeping up in the gym. So that is definitely an upside that I won't ignore.

Looking forward, I want to really take a long look at my eating habits and see why I wasn't shedding the pounds as I would have liked. I think I'll take 1 week to not only track but track things like time, how I'm feeling, why I ate, etc. and really pay attention to the nutrients. I really think it's not how much I'm eating but what I'm eating that's keeping me stuck.

Anyway, congrats to all those who really did so well this challenge. I saw a lot of people losing weight and really jumpstarting their journey. Beginning this journey is sometimes the hardest part. So congrats & see you next round
