My 6 week BLC 20 check-up

Monday, October 22, 2012

Revisiting my plan that I made 6 weeks ago for this round I'm very happy to say I'm at the lower end of my maintenance range. I've been very good at tracking my food on Spark, not 100% but closer to 90% and staying in range.

I've gotten rid of my twizzlers that was a food trigger, until my SIL sent some home with my DH, we'd left the bag at their house last summer. Ack! I've only had about 5 pieces in the last two weeks so I feel I'm in control.

I've also managed to stay on track through the weekend, always my downfall. As long as I have a nice meal planned for the weekend DH is less apt to suggest to go out to eat.

My exercise remains spot on, I'm working out 6x a week...still Streaking! I have not increased my cardio as I originally planned to do. I'd still like to add another 15 minutes a day but it's hard to get up any earlier than I already do to exercise.

All in all, I'm happy with my progress this round!

    I think learning how to work in your likes- in moderation and in control is a great accomplishment. That shows you are in it for a lifestyle. WTG on still streaking!

    You are such a wonderful example to all of us and therefore motivational in your actions. Is is great having leaders who DO as they preach and don't pay lip service to the goals of BLC. Fantastic Dalene. Congrats.

Just a twizzler thought. Think about the ingredients if you left them at her house last summer and they are still good.


Proud that you've done so well! You are one awesome leader of the pack!
