Week 5, BLC 17 WUB, Fitness Plan - All rolled into one!
Saturday, January 26, 2013
So I have this confession. I lost another 2.6 lbs this week, but I didn't really do anything to accomplish this. I know I really shouldn't be questioning this too hard. I should just celebrate, but it is frustrating when in the past I have worked so hard and seen such miniscule results. Then I put in very little effort and 'poof.' I'm confused, bewildered even, but I'm going to accept this gift from the weight loss gods, and move on. Imagine what I am going to do now that I am really trying!
I was somewhat cognizant of what I was eating, and making better choices than I have in the past. I did not have any fast food this week, which is kind of a big deal. I usually justify one meal from Wendy's for being so "good" the rest of the week. Bad reward, I know. It's funny though how we develop these little justifications. There almost like weight loss 'tics,' unique to each individual, and something we barely notice in ourselves because we've been doing it for so long. I think if we can just identify these tics we can consciously try to curb them in the future.
Time to start working on my fitness. Did anyone else just get Fergalicious stuck in their head? "I be up in the gym just working on my fitness He's my witness (oooh, wee)" Oh lord...
Fitness Plan: For the BLC#17 challenge I want to start small and work my way up, so I am going to update my fitness plan each week. For the first week (well, technically 2nd week, but I joined late), I am going to start with 10 minutes each day, Monday-Saturday. I do want to make sure I am doing Jillian's 30 DS on some days, which is about 30 minutes, so if I do more than 10 minutes "Yay!" If not, no big deal - at least 10 minutes a day though.
As for any other updates, as I am sure you already know from my previous comments above, I joined the BLC#17 challenge this week. I'm pretty excited at this point. I think I have better consistency when I have direction each week, am on a team, and know that there is the possibility of disappointing people on said team if I slack - so accountability I guess is my key.
There you have it, my weekly update and a fitness plan. Now I am hungry, so off to the kitchen I go. And, yes, I will look for something healthy.
