In BLC23, I'm a member of the Steely Sapphire Soldiers, and I think this team is a great fit for me! Lots of encouragement and structure, so I'll know what to do to succeed. Sapphire Strong!
My plan is less detailed than plans I've written previously, because I'm usually too ambitious at this stage in a new round, and I assume I'll do everything consistently and perfectly all through the round. That's simply not realistic, and it leads to disappointment when I don't meet my own expectations.
So, then - what's my plan?
Healthier eating habits:
Eat more freggies, fewer processed foods, and healthier fats in smaller amounts.
Increased water intake:
Establish a habit of consistently drinking 8 glasses a day.
Commit to 30 minutes of deliberate exercise at least five days each week. (This also meets the criteria for staying on the BLC Streaker team.)
During BLC23, I'll count steps with a pedometer, shooting for 10,000/day.
What are possible fears and obstacles?
I'm not an exercise lover, so I need to find the sweet spot where the exercise is challenging enough to do me some good, but where I still enjoy the overall process.
I used to enjoy certain activities, but now that I'm a bit older, they don't work as well for me as they used to, so time to try some new things.
And one obstacle that I have some control over is making the time to do this. I have a lot going on, but taking care of me needs to be one of my priorities, not an afterthought.
Okay, enough introspection. I think I'm focusing on the right areas, and looking forward to a successful BLC23 round. Bring it on!
