Happy Labor Day, everyone!
I am enjoying the BLC23 pre-challenge challenges. They are keeping me motivated. The challenge actually begins around September 26 and lasts for 12 weeks, so practically through the end of the year. It looks like a great team with lots of interesting things going on -- after 22 rounds, I think they've got it down to a science! So far it's a highly-organized challenge which appeals to me. If you want to check it out and have never participated in a BLC challenge before, here's the link.
In other news, my heart rate is still ridiculously high when I exercise vigorously. Yesterday TC and I ran intervals and after a few miles my heart rate was up to 174 while his was at 139. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I hope I get some good news because we leave for our Machu Picchu hiking trip in TWO WEEKS!!
In preparation for the appointment tomorrow, I got out the paperwork from my tests last year. In February 2012 I had a bone density test and my weight was 169! Today it is 149. As a chronic yo-yo dieter I am very, very proud that I have lost that 20 pounds and am determined to keep them off and lose the last 15 pounds in 2013. I am excited and motivated. A lot going on this year still, a lot of reasons I could give for NOT being able to lose weight, but I am finally learning that nothing knocks me off track -- EXCEPT ME.
I hope my Sparkfriends have a healthy, happy, relaxing Labor Day.
