Here we are at the halfway point of the 12 round of BLC. Yes, this is for my 100 points in the challenge, but I really have been reflecting the past few days.
I rejoined BLC this round after regaining about 15 pounds from my maintenance weight that I had been at for around 3 years. UGH.
I had been a leader previously of the CAMO team for a few rounds. I LOVED it! I dropped out on the teams when my life became way too hectic. BAD DECISION in hind site! I can blame Kohl's & their breakroom food for my weight gain, but I do actually know it was just me slipping back into every old bad habit.
So..... The good so far this round......
~ I get on the scale once every morning once again. (I did this for years, but stopped doing it when the weight gain started. BAD CHOICE!)
~ I'm drinking all that water again. Taking a bottle with me every time I get into the car again. Ordering water at restaurants again.
~ I'm rotating Upper, Lower, Core ST most every evening like I used to do for years.
~ CARDIO again!! Walking, Running, Hiking, Biking, DVD's. Even tried Ziplining & Canoeing on vacation this past week!
~ I got more Fitness Minutes on vacation than I do at home normally!
What I still need to really work on....
~ That darn pop. When I kept it to one 12oz can a day, I was fine. Then Kohl's happened. I started sucking down 20oz Mountain Dews for the caffeine like it was going out of style. Empty calories at their best. Even when I left Kohl's, I was still in the old habit of drinking WAY too much pop.
I've gotten back to 12oz a day. Actually survived the whole day without it yesterday. (But I opened the fridge and stared at it about 5 times.)
~ Better calories. Yes, I can stay in my calorie range, but not exactly with the healthiest ones.
~ Baked goods. My kryptonite. My draw to them is strong again. But I really am doing better cutting back. Still have a long way to go.
So........ In conclusion..........
I'm human. Not perfect. But trying hard.
