BLC 20 Re-Boot

Monday, October 22, 2012

Ok, so I haven't been as successful in BLC 20. My goal is to lose 20 pounds by 12/5. 6 weeks in and I'm less than 5 pounds down. To be honest, my weight has stayed in the same 5 pound range for 2 months. So how about the rest of my goals?

1) Size 16 - in a 18/20 right now.
2) Less than 50 inch hips - met 10/13/12.
3) Less than 14 inch arms - currently at 14 and 14.25
4) Less than 37 inch chest - currently 38.
5) Less than 38 inch waist - currently 38.5.
6) Less than 25 inch thighs - currently 26.25 and 26.
7) Less than 16 inch calves - currently 16.5.
8) Work out at least 4 days a week - I'm averaging about 5 days.
9) Drink at least 4 glasses of water a day - not there yet.
10) 5 real pushups - I can do 20 three steps up on the stairs.
12) 20 second plank - met 9/24/12.

I am very close on my measurements, and think I will meet those goals. I'm pretty happy with my workouts, and have increased the time from 30 to 45 minutes on average. I really need to work on my water. I think I will have to be happy withb1 real pushup. I am getting stronger, and decreasing my angle on the stsirs, but I don't know that I'll be ready for 5. On the other hand, since I blasted through my 20 second plank goal, I think I can go for 40 seconds!!!

Some good, some bad. But progress is being made. My thighs have each gone up a quarter inch, so I have been trying o work my legs harder. I don't know if I'll meet my weight goal, but I'll keep trying!!!!

    Good chance your thighs are growing in muscle mass and not fat! I bet you can get that 1 full push up in soon and conquer 5! You are almost there with a 20 second plank! Keep progressing! You are doing great!

    The BLC is proving to be a great challenge in terms of keeping us going. I know that by the end of it we will come out stronger. It's a lot harder than I thought, but thus the word "Challenge." Keep pushing and you will reach your goals!

    i think you are doing great susan love.not to forget you may not be losing as much weight as you would like you are looseing inches which means you are builing up muscle which are dense that fat so will also slow down your weight the water if you leave a bottle by your bedside all the time and have a glass in the morning when you wake up and a glas at night that is already 2 glasses then have a glass with every meal and snack depending on how many meals and snacks you should meet your 4 glasses goal easy.hope this helps i think you are doing great love.keep up the good work and donīt forget to smile.
