For our first weekend challenge of BLC22, we have been asked to blog about our goals for this round of BLC.
There are so many things that I want to change, it's nice to sit down and pare those down so they don't get so overwhelming and while the weight loss is nice, I almost think it is secondary to creating healthy, life long habits. With those habits, the weight loss just follows.
So, my goals for the next 12 weeks:
1. Get back to a morning workout routine. An hour of working out before getting ready for work doesn't seem like too much to ask of myself (especially when I used to do it faithfully). So, I'm setting my alarm clock to go off earlier, I'm putting my workout clothes out and I am getting out of bed the first time that alarm goes off.
2. Cut out the sugar. This is the area I feel like I struggle with the most. I have a book called "Beyond Sugar Shock" that deals with cutting sugar out of your diet. My first step is to read that book and incorporate the ideas so I quit eating (and craving the sugar)
3. Track my nutrition. Here is another place I've fallen off the wagon since the end of the last BLC round. I am making this a priority every day. No going to bed unless every bit of food I have eaten for the day is recorded in my tracker.
4. Meet new friends. I feel like I am already well on my way to doing this but with time and sharing, I feel those friendships become deeper. I will continue to check in with my team at least once a day and learn about their successes and struggles.
