BLC Break

Saturday, April 27, 2013

We are in between BLC 21 and 22, which is considered a break for 8 weeks.

This break has let me reflect on what I have been doing wrong for the last couple of months and what I am succeeding at.

I hit my 70lb loss on Feb 9th and since then I have been struggling to lose another 10. Since the break I've lost 2.8lbs in the last couple of weeks. That's the most in a while.

Some of my changes-
a. Changed my breakfast from multi-grain cheerios with a banana to Oatmeal with a banana.
b. added the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred in order to shake up my routine since I mainly workout at the gym.
c. Going back to recording my CICO.

The one thing I can still work on is my snacking. I've been great the last few days, but it's hard for me to be good everyday. I know I snack when I'm bored. I try to get my mind off of it when I start thinking about snacking.

I'm still working out hard and drinking my water.

My original goal was to hit the 100lbs off by August 31st. I'm at 79.8 right now. I technically can still do it in the next 4 months! I'm not going to focus on the numbers, but to continue toning and becoming stronger!!

Here is a picture of my journey so far.

    You look emoticon . You have come a long way. Changing things up is definitely the way to go. I have 8 JM dvds and I have a love/hate relationship with them all emoticon . When you build up to it, try doing all 3 levels at once. I start with L3 skip the cool down, L2 skipping the warm up and cool down, then L1 skip the warm up but do the cool down.

I'm sure you will reach your 100lbs loss. It doesn't matter how long it takes as long as you get there. emoticon

    You are right on track. It's so inspirational to read about your continued desire to make that 100 lb loss within goal time. I have lost 72 lbs and am finding my self in a slump just wavering up and down. Reading your story makes me realize that I just need to get on with it. Love the picture diary. You're looking fabulous.
