So we're half way through BLC 20 and it's time for an update! MOVE, LOSE, GAIN. Let's reflect
I haven't been moving as much as I'd like - as if I didn't know it already - life gets busy and there is always something. My "something" the past several weeks has been sick kiddos.
I have been doing some extra moves over my lunch break at work - so I'm doing more than before - need to keep it up and add some more.
I was doing great - down 5 pounds (I think) but this past week was a doosie on the scale - so now my total lose is only 2 or 3 lbs. WILL get back on track. Am hopeful that this next week I will show a loss. I've begun to become more aware of the carbs I eat - tyring to choose higher protein items.
I haven't done as much strength training as I'd like. I'm going to purchase a kettle bell and hope this something new will encourage me to not only move more - but become stronger too.
The past 6 weeks I've taken baby steps - but baby steps moving forward! I was thinking today how when my daughter took her first steps we cheered and cheered for her - we were so proud! My 8 month old twins are beginning to become more mobile and with every milestone we cheer and get so excited! I am going to choose to cheer and be excited for the progress I've made the past 6 weeks - regardless how small the steps. Here's to the rest of BLC!
Blogging weekly - I need to remember to do this. I totally forgot that I wrote that down!
Last week I began BLC 20 - it was encouraged that we write what our goals were for the next 12 weeks. I really like this idea so that I can remind myself what I want to do here. MOVE, LOSE, and GAIN.
I want to move forward. I'm tired of treading in the same space. I need to do something different in order to see results. no chage = no reward
I want to lose weight. I want to be happy with how I look in family pictures during the holidays. I want to be in the pictures - not only taking them.
I want to gain muscle and confidence. I had it once - I want it again.
I'm going to blog at least once a week. This is my space where I can write how I'm feeling. I'm going to write weekly goals. I'm not going to quit.
