Finding My Mojo; BLC22 Plan for Success

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

*Sigh*...How does it turn out that you have all of the tools, information and experience required for you to meet your goals but you hit a speed bump and land in a space of blah? Yep, I'm in Blah-ville right now. I started Sparking in October 2012 and instantly fell in love. I'd Spark for hours at the expense of other things and had to admit I was addicted. I had a slow but steady WL pace going and all was well in the world.
Fast forward seven months. I've had about a week and a half off track, not tracking and not Sparking. Something that had become second nature to me now feels foreign. In less than two weeks I went from rah-rah to blah. Less than two weeks! How can you lose your mojo that quickly? My body feels squishy like I need a serious workout and a detox. Good thing the BLC is starting again. I have a reason to get back on track. Easy to fall into oblivion when you don't have to report to other people. Not so much when there's a team you've committed to. Ok, I'm ready.

BLC22 Plan for Success (all the stuff i already know to do):
Track: This means every BLT, every day.
Count: Stay in my cal range daily. None of that 'weekly averages' mess either.
Food: At least 4 freggies daily.
Hydrate: At least 9 8oz cups of water daily.
Rest: At least seven hours of sleep per night.
Be well: At least 15 minutes of "me" time each day.
Nurture the spirit: Church at least twice per month.
Goals: Post them on the fridge weekly. (Keeps me honest)
Fitness: 3 days of cardio and 3 of ST each week. (Can be combined but 5 active days each week).
Communicate: Blogging and sharing can help.
Encourage: When I praise others I feel better.
And finally, do what my body leads me to. No bizarre workout schedules for this one. If I'm feelin a run, I'll run. If not, I'll walk. Maybe kickboxing...maybe dance fitness. Whatever I feel, whenever I feel it. Let it be what it will be.

I'll reward myself for sticking to my plan by saving for a nice destination trip with DH. Once I reach bikini weight it'll be on and poppin!!!

    Love the idea of posting goals on the fridge....and I also love that several of your goals focus on non-physical stuff! It's hard to remember to take time for "you" during all this craziness!
