Jump Into June

Monday, June 10, 2013

BLC 22 is under way and I am getting off to a slow start. The break between rounds was rough ~ I had surgery to remove bunions from my left foot, so starting this round I am still in a walking boot and have limited mobility. Hoping to get the all clear this week and see what fitness the dr will approve! I have been doing some light pilates/yoga and chair exercises, but am really ready to increase the minutes and intensity.

During the next twelve weeks I would:

Like to lose 10 pounds
Lose inches
Tighten, tone and build muscle

To accomplish this I need to get back to meal planning and tracking food. And add as much fitness back into my daily routine as possible. At the end of BLC 21, I probably averaged at least 350 minutes a week of various activities and I would like to get back to that level again.

An additional goal is to strive to get out and get at least 15 minutes of sunshine on the weekdays. It really energizes me and helps get that much needed Vit D. It's so hot here in the TX summer, outdoor fitness is tough, but I can go and pull weeds from the flower beds for at least 15 minutes - that's a win-win!

    Sunshine works for me too - I'm much more likely to be active. I like your idea of pulling weeds for 15 minutes; goodness knows, I've plenty to pull!

As someone who had her exercise and nutrition together and then let it slide, the hardest part for me has just been to get started again.

Good luck, Donna. emoticon

    I agree with Jan. As long as you're doing something (tracking your food, for example), you will reach your goals.

    It may be slow going at first but I'm sure as we move through you'll pick up the pace excellently. Keep pushing!

    DONNA - keep at it and don't worry about the slow start - you STARTED - that's the important thing.
