BLC Week 10 Weekend Challenge Blog ... Goals

Monday, March 25, 2013

I realized today that I was one week behind on what I was posting ... in number only (my last blog should have been titled Week 9 ) not in results.

One of our weekend challenges is to post a blog looking back at the past nine weeks regarding the goals we had set and if we think we will manage to obtain that goal.

I am so happy to say that I have achieved that goal, which was to lose 10% of my weight or 29 pounds (28.85 to be exact). As of last Wednesday I had made it to 31 pounds lost.

Things that I have done well:

Managed to track my food on the nutrition tracker about 99% of the time. I like this tool and I feel that I have gotten the hang of the nutrition side of things.

Participated in the team challenges emoticon ... to the best of my ability. I know going forward that I will need to do more and that area will be in the exercise arena.

I have really learned that emoticon 's are a HUGE piece of my success,

both my teammates in the challenge and sparker's I have met along the way...

You are all emoticon . I try to return the encouragement that I get ... kind of like paying it forward I guess. It is like the fuel to my fire.

What I need to do better/differently:

-Make exercise a priority
-Plan different meals and try new foods
-Check in daily on spark (more than just a log in)

    Cookie you are doing so well! Keep up with tracking your nutrition. That exercise will come. 10 minutes a day isn't much but you do need to plan for it. You know that already just by looking at your blog. I am so proud of you! Keep up the good work!

    Periodic assessment is a very good idea. Yesterday I looked back at my nutrition tracking for the past week and was surprised to see I had significantly exceeded my calories count 4 days out of 7, talk about a wake up call! I have made a new commitment to stay within my calorie limit.

    Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon
