Yeah! BLC 21 starts today! I'm so happy. My team (Pink Vikings that is all of you!) is incredible, everybody is so nice and enthusiastic.
I'm not happy about my first weigh-in but from that point it can only get better. I was really hoping that by now I would be 189 but I'm still 193 (the scale has been acting funny lately and my weight fluctuate a lot even just between readings the same morning!!!)
I'm a bit late in my BeFit in 90 workouts but I will get back on schedule tonight. Also, I think I might not be burning as much calories while doing it as I thought. So my personal challenge will be to add at least 3 good sessions (30-60 minutes) on the elliptical per week. That should help me burn an extra 1000-1500 calories.
Food wise, i'm still trying to reduce my grain intake. I trying to eat at least 2 meals everyday without starches. To counterbalance and feel full, I'm eating more veggies and more fat. I know, it sounds silly to eat fat if you want to lose fat but it worked well for 2 of my friends. I probably won't be as extreme as he is, but I decided to reduce the amount of low-fat stuff I buy. I prefer eating the real deal, because there is usually less chemicals and less sugar in it. I'm also trying to stay away from artificial sweetener. I would also like to find a way to be more organize. I don't know who said that Virgo were organized and neat people but he/she was really wrong in my case! I'm messy and far from a list addict. During the challenge, I will try to cook at least on meal in my slowcooker to have a big batch of food for later. I would also like to make one soup recipe every week, because I just love soup and it's a great way to get more veggies.
On our team, we discussed the link between clutter and being overweight. There might be some link because my apartment is a mess and I'm fat. I think I'm going to try and sit down and make a list (apparently those a great to be more organised lol!) of all the things there is to do and divided it by week or even by day. Example? Well right now I can barely see the floor in my bedroom because of all the clothes and stuff lying around my bed. I started a major clean up months ago and never finish, so I end up with an even bigger mess. So I want to do this but it seems such a big task. Maybe if I divided over the course of a week it will get done without spending a day in the bedroom!
= My face when I look at my room!
Last, I want to write down my goals and place them in a visible spot (maybe at more than one place) so I can constantly remember.
I think I can do all that prepping tonight. Considering I get home from work at 5 and usually don't go to bed before 10, it gives me a LOT of time. Somehow my couch is very time consuming!
To do list for tonight (I'll give it a try, maybe I'll become a list fan!)
