This is a tune-up blog because I see little change in my body and am not where I had planned to be at this point. The disappointing thing is that looking back at my goals when I started BLC, I’ve kept up with most (if not all) of them. I realize though…after re-evaluating…what I left off my initial goals is what I should have focused on. Yes, I drink more water. Yes, I work out harder. Yes, Ive been bringing lunch from home 90% of the time and yes, I have limited my BLTs (bites licks and tastes)…but my biggest weakness is sweets and snacking (mainly snacking on sweets) and that’s what I should have put as my #1 goal to begin with.
Plan from now on. Continue doing what Im doing but adding these elements:
Less snacking. Period.
Less snacking on sweets.
Less carbs for dinner.
More sleep. (Something else I struggle with)
Plan of Action on these:
For the snacking/sweet issue – make sure I plan at least the night before of what I’ll allow as a sweet or snack the next day. I cant realistically give it up cold turkey but I can make wiser decisions and plan according to what I have ‘space’ for on my trackers.
For more protein – starting off my day with at least 20g of protein..albeit eggs and/or oatmeal and/or milk.
Less carbs – focus on more veggies for dinner and small serving of brown rice or quinoa or 1 wheat tortilla
More sleep – just gotta get it in! Will focus on workouts earlier in the day (when possible) so Im not spending so much time at night doing them.
I know with all these changes, the more difficult ones that I must have subconsciously convinced myself to ignore in the initial goal setup, I surely will succeed.
