Title from Echolyn - “Settled Land”
I set some very modest goals for this BLC 21 challenge. In my post from January 6, just 23 days ago, I said that over the next 12-13 weeks, I'd get the weight down to 175, that I'd do 20 minutes a day of exercise, and that I'd do 10 squats and 10 lunges a day. Well, I'm not doing so hot at reaching those goals. The lunges, especially, are faltering, as I might do them twice a week. The squats, they occur more frequently, but it's not a daily occurrence. And while I'm getting exercise regularly, I've taken the last two Wednesdays completely off, failing to do a lick of exercise on the 16th or 23rd. That fact will probably force my brain to move my feet at some point today. Not sure in what direction, or in what motion.
But...there's a big but here. Two weeks into the official portion of challenge, I'm seriously challenging the goal weight I set in the first week of January. It won't happen tomorrow, I might not get there next week, but at the current pace, I’ll get to the 12 week goal in about four weeks. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the current pace will continue, nor that I won’t bounce in the wrong direction, as I have a habit of doing. But it means that there’s an off chance that I might be doing something right, even as I biff on what I’d intended to do.
Not sure whether to be heartened or annoyed by this dichotomy, so I’ll go with the first option. Plenty enough to be annoyed with otherwise.
