BLC 22, here I am!

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

We start BLC 22 today, so I had to step on the scale (I've benn avoiding in these past 2 weeks.) I was not suprised to see 195.3 lb but I was not happy.
I've been eating TONS of carbs lately, and I really need to take the control back.

Here's my plan for the challenge:

- Track! I'm very bad at this but now that it gives points, I really want to stick with that habit.
- Limit my carbs intake to one meal (I'm talking about bread/pasta/rice/potatoes here).
- Now that summer is here, eat a salad per day.
- Go to the market to get fresh produces.
- Prep in advance, cook in batch, become a pro in the no-excuse cooking.

- Stick to the minimum of 20 minutes/5 days a week streak. I will be a streaker this time!
- Follow my training program for my 10k in september.
- Start and finish both pushup (100) and situps (200) challenges.
- Use my bike when I want to go somewhere near (save on gas and burn some calories, double win!)
- Take any opportunity to be active, be it a walk in the park, playing with my nephew, swiming in my parents' pool, anything.

I've set a very, very, very attainable goal for this challenge. I want to lose 10 pounds. I can do that. I'm not setting myself up for failure this time with a too big goal. Of course, I need to stop thinking I be at my goal weight by Christmas... It's very unlikely to happen and I must accept it. I'm hoping that losing again will help me see that even if I'm not getting there in the time frame I had in mind, at least I'm going somewhere!

To all my Vikings: Let's ROCK THE BOAT!
And to all BLCers: Have a good time, and it will be a pleasure for us Vikings to beat your team ;)

Have a nice day and have a nice glass of water right now, to start all this the right way!

    Ce n'est pas facile d'admettre qu'il faut du temps pour maigrir durablement sans y laisser sa santé. On voudrait tous et toutes brûler les étapes autant que les calories, mais ça marche pas ainsi. Avec tes objectifs, tu vas voir des résultats et ça va t'encourager à continuer tes efforts.

    Bonne chance pour le BLC 22 ! emoticon

    Whoop! Love your goals, especially the one about the salad a day. That sounds so refreshing! I know you can do these!

    I followed your advice and drank a glass of water! Thank you for the reminder!

    Have fun to the BLC, you CAN do it!!!
    Try to stop thinking about "numbers" and "goal weight". Scale can be a very vicious little creature... Just stick to your plan and results are gonna come!

    You know what struck me on this blog..the 1 carb per meal thing. I realized that we had a habit of overdoing the carbs with our meals. We would have rice in our tortilla or rolls with potatoes. I am going to make every effort not to do that. Funny how we change the way we think. Pick one or the other but don't have both. : )

    We will pull together and help you meet your goals for this BLC!

    Row hard!

    Man, I could copy and paste almost all of your blog into mine for goals.... I have a goal of losing 12 pounds, though-- as I want to be in onderland 12 weeks from now....

    I love your goals, though-- they are very measurable and specific...

    I've super missed you around here-- I know you've been busy with job and car stuffs, but man, it is good to have you around!
