BLC21 - Thoughts for Success..

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I can't believe we have started again already! Woohoo!!

Before the challenge officially started we were asked to create a plan for our 12 weeks challenge. What were we going to do to to achieve success, and what were our rewards going to be. At the time, I had to think about it. I mean, the plan I had for BLC20 worked really well (lost 12lbs), and I have continued to lose since the end (if only a little). So before I could share my plan I had to decide if I really wanted to change anything....After all, why 'fix' something if it isn't broken.

So, here is my thoughts on how to maintain success this round:

1. Plan - Continue to plan. In order for me to be successful, I need to plan my meals ahead of time. I also have found that planning and cooking meals on the weekend, saves time during the week, when I am tired and fed up and really just want to grab the closest thing for dinner.

2. Exercise. I did well last round, but I think I need to up my game. I want to try to get between 40-60 mins daily. This should be do-able, and even enjoyable. In order to do this, I need to make sure I get my schedule down...Which leads to number 3.

3. SLEEP! I need to go to bed early, so that I can get up early and do my first (longer workout). If I don't get the workout in first thing, I have a tendency to try a cop-out later. I end up doing it, but I end up trying to talk myself out of it. Well rested = Perky morning = good morning workout and no drama!

4. Water. Must keep drinking my water. Helps me stay refreshed and not feeling bloated.

5. Food. I need to eat protein at every meal or snack and I need to make sure I eat more often. The longer I go between meals and/or if I skip protein, sets me up for bingeing later on. Steady food and protein is better for me!

6. Support. I have to keep up my posts and blogging with my team. I really love them, and find I am more successful when I keep up with them.

7. Limit computer time. I use my computer to do a lot of time wasting things. I watch TV, read emails, play games, etc. Time I could use for other purposes. The more I sit in front of the computer, the less I want to do. SO....pull the plug. I will try to use my computer only for sparking, recipes and 30 mins of social stuff a day.

To help myself track....Here are some pics for the start of BLC21:


The differences may be hard to see, between these pics and the originals I took for BLC 20, but the differences ARE there...I'm good with that.

I am still thinking on my rewards. I don't know what each will be. That will have to come in another blog. For now, my plan makes me happy. And happy me = successful me. I can definitely live with that! emoticon

  Terrific! Thanks for sharing this. I'm trying to figure out why I can't figure out where the BLC is now!! I was really looking forward to doing it, but I seem to have lost where it's at. Your blog is great!
