First, I tried to do this last night but my laptop wouldn't let me in to make the post:
CI - 1838
BMR - 1565
CO - 534 (a mile walk at lunch and riding 2 horses)
BLC has ended. I am not thrilled with my results. I feel like I'm constantly making excuses. I tried Advocare during this round. The 24 day challenge would have ended 3 days before the end of BLC. Perfect timing right? Well, I stopped early with a HORRIBLE case of hives. And I hadn't lost that much doing it anyway. I'm only down about 2 pounds from my start BLC weight. Feel like this round was kind of wasted and I'm a little angry and a lot disappointed in myself. Self control when it comes to "I'll just have a little bit of (fill in the blank with something horrible for me like DingDongs, cookies, cake, ice cream, irish cream, etc.)" just hasn't been there at all. Add to that the waning light and weather meaning I don't want to go outside and do anything. The influence of my unmotivated roommate doesn't help. I'm not blaming him, but I'm definitely influenced by people around me. Mix in a little holiday stress, still unresolved emotional issues with Thom and the family (on top of being December ... aka Triad Anniversary Month).... and I feel like I'm drowning in excuses but can't find my own lifeboat. Where's the mental reset button when you really want one?
I've already signed up for the next round and will be doing the in between round challenges with my team, plus a little one on one challenge with a fellow warrior. Things have to change. They have to.
