5% Challenge Recap and BLC23 Goals!

Monday, September 23, 2013

I appreciate all who have commented on my last few blogs! I have not had the time to respond individually.

The 5% challenge ended on Saturday, and I pleased to say that I almost made it. I weighed in at 211.5 and my goal was 211. Not to bad and I will take it. If I did not have the encounter with the candy bars 2 weeks ago, I would have made it. I didn't think it would mess up my blood sugar control that badly. Live and learn moving on! I am doing another Fall 5% Challenge! I just loved it and I am now getting used to teams. I have not been a poster in teams, but I love how certain teams are set up for a purpose and focus, and I just love them!! I am getting the hang of it! I canít wait to be a Firecracker again!!

I am currently doing the BLC team Indigo. I love this too!! This has a different format and I LOVE the walking challenge!! I hope to meet my 100 miles at the end!! This goes for 10 weeks, and have done 1 week. I need to step it up on the walking!! It is much more than walking, but I am really loving this part, canít you tell!!

I am also doing the BLC23 round, my first one, and I am so excited to be part of the Silver Spies!! I am not sure how this all goes, but if it what I am thinking, I am sure in store for quite the ride!! This goes for 12 weeks. I am making some pretty high goals for the rest of the year, and certainly for the 12 weeks for R23. A fellow spy was suggesting a pretty high goal for himself for losing pounds and I thought I would join him in that goal! So, I am setting high goals! Each goal is numerically kept track of.

1. To lose 35lbs at the end of 12 weeks.
2. To eat foods on my food list and eat according to my clean eating plan 90% of the time each week and to the end.
3. To increase tonnage (weight moved) weekly through kettlebell swings.

So, the focus is on 90% adherence to diet and progressive training with kettlebells.

I am really loving these teams! I found what I need to keep me on track!!

    Great job! In my opinion you reached your goal. What is 0.5 lbs in the big picture? I am so happy for you that you have found something that works for you. Your blog is just dripping with enthusiasm. I have joined the 5% fall challenge and you have certainly made me less apprehensive.
