Yes, it is that time again where you will see some BLC 21 related posts from me. Some of our challenges include posting a blog about certain things, so I gotta do what I gotta do to represent the Sassy
Sheriff's and get those points!
The round just started this Wednesday, and I am pretty excited. I am ready to push myself for the next 12 weeks. The last round was my first time participating in the BLC, and I lost a little over 14 pound during the 12 week challenge. While I am proud of what I accomplished, I also hit my major plateau and did not lose an ounce for a little over 4 weeks. It was really frustrating not to hit my goal of 18 pounds for the round, but hey, stuff happens.
I enjoyed the experience so much that I am back for my second round. My starting weight for the round is 216.8 and my goal is to lose 20 pounds. It may be a bit of a lofty goal for me, but I am determined to push full steam ahead to try to lose 20 pounds, and if I fall short what's the worst that happens, I lose 15 pounds instead? I will take it. I really would like to at least hit Onederland during this challenge. Besides, we all know I am chomping at the bit to get my hand on the Ipod Touch 5 right?! It is definitely on my mind. Maybe I should put a picture of it on my fridge as an added reminder.
Anyways, having a goal to lose 20 pounds is great, but how am I going to get it done? Okay, I can't lie... I already set my January goals, and essentially all my goals are the same. The ONLY difference is, to get the points for this challenge I will need 300 fitness minutes a week, so that is the only thing that is really changing... trying to get in MORE fitness minutes.
BLC goals (same as January goals):
Blog once a week on Tuesdays with results for accountability.
Track water intake and get at least 8 glasses.
Strength Training 3 days a week for upper body, 2 days for lower body.
7 days of cardio... with 2 days being just walking for the cardio.
Track all food.
Stay in calorie range!
Hit 300 fitness minutes a week (added for blc, and to have 1000 fitness minutes for January).
So there you have it, here is my starting pic that many of you have seen, and here is to having a significant difference in my "after photo" 12 weeks from now!
