BLC 20.5 Tune Up

Monday, October 22, 2012

emoticon emoticon Thank goodness for this tune up because I need it.

On Sept. 17 I posted a 12 week plan to:

1. Determination - Believe

2. Strong - Faith

3. Motivated - Support

4. Organized - Prepare

5. Reward - Earn

We'll that was a good blueprint but not actual measurable goals. And that has not helped me at all. My tune up goals are to:

1. Track food and post CICO at least 4-5 times per week

2. Fitness minutes 225 - 300 per week

3. Strength training 3 times per week 15min or more

4. Increase water to 6 -8fl oz daily

5. Increase vegetable to 5 - 9 servings per day

6. Stay honest and committed to my team. My knee injury has set me waaay back but there are other things that I could be doing my best at and I haven't, because the injury killed my motivation and hope. I'm still struggling with pain that comes and goes but finding ways to help it.

7. Reward myself weekly emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

8. Prepare meals for last minute days and after work

Another thing I need to do is create a visual remind of my goals and sit them in the most important places: work, car, home, etc.

    Very true and honest, Key..

    And I agree, an injury is both a physical and mental blow. But, good for you for your awareness and coming up with a plan so you don't de-rail!

    I have really struggled with hunger this week- but I know why - I have been too busy, and therefore skipped many small meals or snacks throughout the day, which have left me hungry when my blood sugar drops, and not eating as well as I also has shown on the scale..only a lb each week for the last 2 because of it...

    But again, awareness, I know what I have to do to get back on track - that's what this journey is?! Right!? Being in the "present" and helping ourselves move forward!!

    Great tune up! An injury isn't just a physical but mental blow and I am sorry you are struggling with that. It can definitely be a motivation killer but I know you are strong and it's clear you are going to keep pushing. emoticon
