It's been a long time since I posted a blog -- and I've been writing a bunch in my head without getting them down.
Thanks to a BLC challenge -- here I am -- blogging at last!
It's been a wonderful experience being part of BLC21. I have put in more fitness minutes than I would have otherwise -- and I am now jogging 30 minutes straight, having completed training with Spark and following the Run Your Butt Off Program that MRSVK11 introduced me to. I've also added Body Pump classes to my week and this will add a great weight training element to my cardio.
Here are some of my thoughts for the BLC 8-week break:
To keep the momentum -- I'm planning to "stick with what works." For me that includes the following:
Tracking -- a must!
Working Out -- Spin, Body Pump, Hooping, Walk/Jog/Hike
Continuing with BLC habits of LCW, Weigh In on Wednesday, TNT, and weekend challenges
Prayer and Worship
Learning more about Brain Gym and Mindful Yoga
Setting up e-cards to arrive two times a week with encouraging words, reminders to keep the healthy fires burning. If anyone knows a good site for that -- where you can pre-schedule when a card will arrive (and it's free) -- I'd love any suggestions.
I'm at a crossroads weight -- a weight I've often arrived at and then went up from rather than down. So, here are some words to myself:
No self-sabotaging. Don't get lax or overly casual with your eating.
You can win this!
You can achieve this!
Many others have done so . . . you will join them!
Remember the quote from a teammate's Sparkpage:
"If you're tired of starting over, STOP giving up."
Will probably work on these a bit more -- but wanted to make sure I posted -- both for my own sake -- and to bring on more points for my team (Hi Team!!!!!!)
Wherever this finds you --
Smiles for you!
Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What . . .
