6 Weeks is enough time to do a lot of damage

Sunday, December 02, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

BLC 20 ends Dec 5th and BLC21 starts Jan 16th. 6 weeks is enough time to do a lot of damage, right? So I need a plan and some accountability partners to keep me honest.

My Falcon Flock is keeping me company these 6 weeks with continuing Weekend and Daily Challenges along with Weekly Weigh Ins.

I have 3 committed Accountability partners ready to cheer me emoticon commiserate with me emoticon or kick my butt emoticon depending. My Husband is also weighing in with me each week.

Ill keep with my standing Nutrition habits:
emoticon 8-10 glasses of water a day 2 when I first wake up.
emoticon 5+ veggie servings a day
emoticon Track my calories and Workouts each day here on SP

And heres my Workout Schedule: emoticon
Mon, Tues, Wed, Sun Treadmill and Cardio Videos
Thurs, Sat Kickboxing Class

Here are the biggest temptations coming up -

emoticon I have an office party this coming week. My plan is to drink lots of water during the day and the next day. I have no idea what the menu is, so Ill do my best to make sensible choices. And it will be easy enough to limit to 1 glass of wine with my boss there ;-) Whatever it is, I will log it as best as I can. Also I have volunteered to be one of the designated photographers for the event. That should keep my hands busy for quite a bit of the night.

emoticon Another two parties (one with dinner, one just cookies & sweets) Neither of these will have alcohol, so Ill plan to eat sensibly before hand and take reasonable portions.

emoticon Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be here at my house, so I can control the meal plan. I will have lots of veggies around for snacks. Still looking for one other snack recipe, something that does NOT have cream cheese in it. Let me know if you have any ideas.

AND ... if you are looking to join a challenge in the New Year that will kick start your Healthy Weight Loss Program, plan to join BLC 21 Jan 16th through April 10th.

    Great plan!!! You are so right - it's long enough for damage to be done, so let's have a plan and stick to it!

    This is a great plan!!

Snackage: when I do a veggie platter, I really put out a variety: the usual baby carrots and celery sticks, cauliflower and broccoli flowerettes. But then I add some unusual things like: raw, peeled sweet potato sliced into rounds (delicious!!), kohlrabi, sweet pea pods, the yellow Sunburst cherry tomatoes, and if I feel really extravagant, asparagas.

For a snack not involving cream cheese, what about mini cocktail meatballs? You can get the pre made ones, and lower the calories in the sauce by using reduced calorie cranberry sauce. Or if you really want to lower the cals, make the meatballs yourself using turkey or chicken, but that is very time consuming.

Hummus and baba ganoush are 2 great dips to have on hand, as is the traditional spinach dip made light.
