BLC 20 Creative Writing

Monday, September 17, 2012

Blogs are generally easy for me, but I've been procrastinating this one because I can't place my finger on what it is I want! I know what I need, but lately sorting out the "how" has been the difficult part!

I'm just keeping it simple, breaking it down into categories!

emoticon Exercise -
September... Continue Step'tember 100-700 daily. In addition, 20 mins cardio (minimum) 3 days, C25K 3 days, ST 3 days!
October...Continue C25K, increase cardio to 30 mins (minimum)6 days, continue ST 3 days! Find a 5K race early/mid November!
November...Finish C25K and complete race. Increase cardio to 45 mins (minimum) 6 days, continue running, continue ST 3 days
emoticonNutrition -
September ...Continue 30 days Green Smoothie. Plan meals ahead and make whole food choices! October...Begin 30 days of Clean Eating with focus on meeting macros daily!
November...Yet to be determined depending on results of October... Probably diving deeper into number analysis!
emoticonOutside of Spark-
Establish a daily schedule that includes time for "me" and stick to it! Tackle the many "projects", one at a time, that clutter space and mind! Take time for "family fitness fun" at least twice a week!
emoticon Reward-
I'll establish a saving reward plan based on the above goals that also includes payment weekly for each pound lost, or deduction for pounds gained!

Now for the ugly and probably the biggest reason for procrastination...Pictures! These are just more PROOF that the scale doesn't tell the ENTIRE story, as the few pounds of increase doesn't reveal the changes seen here in appearance or muscle tone! Before you gasp, as I did, please know that the attire worn was intentional to see changes in before/after pictures! These are things that I would not wear in public at the present time, but are goals to be able to wear freely and proudly when the 12 weeks are finished!....Before that wouldn't be too bad either! emoticon

And a special one for my GREEN friends.... emoticon

    My goodness look amazing in those pics. I only WISH I could wear shorts above my knees. I'm sure up close you see all your own flaws that bother you...I think we all have them, but my dear, the rest of the world doesn't see them. Trust me on that. All your hard work has paid off and shows it. You need to look at yourself and realize that. You are beautiful inside and out. I know after these 12 weeks you'll finally FEEL what the rest of us already know emoticon
