This is week 7 of BLC 22. One goal of this week is to reflect on the past 7 weeks.

I have been struggling during this challenge. I gained weight in the very beginning, and have been unable to lose it. I know I am eating too much. I have focused so much on fitness, that I have neglected the biggest part of weight loss. Eating less.

I have tried to change my eating habits without success. One thing I need to work on is not eating when tired. I have been so busy for the past few months with work and family responsiblities, I have been pushing myself to exercise even when I am exhausted.

This is counterproductive. Today I was about to sign on to spark and I thought I am exhausted. Let me have some chips, and I will have more energy.

I instead took a nap. I woke up and felt so much better, PLUS I did not let my eating get out of control.

What I have done right this challenge.
Tracking my food
Exercising 6 days per week
Incorporating strength training.

What I need to adjust- stop emotional eating.
Get more rest

Focus more on what I need to do, and allow that there will be some days that I don't get a lot of spark points. I was involved in 3 challenges at the start of this challenge. I am cutting back on that as well. I will focus on one challenge at a time.

    Someone also told me that women tend to overeat when exercising due to THIRST. So make sure you are getting enough in to drink as well!

    Lynn - I agree with your blog. Eating when we are tired is so detrimental. Sometimes it happens before I am really aware of it because I am tired.

I also agree that one challenge at a time is all I can do. Any more send me over the edge.

Thank you for your blog! Hugs, Lizzie

    You have come so far with this. Minor setbacks are a real bummer - but they are bound to happen. We learn through the process of making our mistakes.
You are doing great!
