BLC23 Started!

Thursday, September 26, 2013

BLC#23 started yesterday, Wed. My initial weigh in (first time I've weighed in since the challenge ended at the end of Aug):

155.4 ---- 0.4lbs over my high-end maintaining range (my range is 155-145, with 150 being my center goal)
Well... I'm stressing about it, but I've definitely been thinking about ways to kick it back down again and why it may have gotten there to begin with.

My T25 workouts have been great. Really, I love the 25min quick workouts that really work my body.
But...2 of the 5 days are not cardio. Which is fine and good....but I think I need a pretty consistent cardio schedule, and when only 3 days on the T25 rotation give me cardio, I need to supplement in other ways
Which I haven't been doing consistently.

So, my plan.
On days when my life is a bit crazy, I'll do a cardio workout from T25, either the dvd CARDIO, SPEED 1.0, or TOTAL BODY CIRCUIT. That way I know I will get my cardio in, even if the rest of my day is crazy.
On days when I have a bit more time, I'll do the AB INTERVAL or LOWER FOCUS T25 in the AM and then supplement my evening with cardio, either going to the gym, a Wii game, or ZUMBA.

My goals for BLC23
-Get my weight back down to 150
-I measured 35 jumping jacks in 30sec today as a goal to improve on.
-I measured a 30sec plank hold today as a goal to improve on. I've gotten to 1min30sec before on this, I'm not sure why it was so hard today. Oh well, more reason to work on it.
-Drink 6+ cups of water every day. This has not been as set in stone lately.
-Track everything. This also has not been as set in stone lately.
-Exercise daily, even if it's only 10mins.

    I have to agree with the above comments . . . don't stress over the scale. Anything can throw the numbers off on the scale. You are doing great. Love you focus! emoticon

    Nice goals. And like you're always telling me...don't fret the scale! It's only can knock that and the rest of it out with the plan you've developed. As long as you've identified the reasons and triggers for the upwards movement then you should have no problem in getting the scale to move "correctly"

That T25 sounds that something you found online? Are there actual dvd's or youtube videos? Thinking it might help me a bit to mix something like that in my routine once in a while.

    Great goals Krystal!

Try not to stress over the scale gain. I have every confidence that with this additional focus, that weight is going to be history!

I don't like it one bit if I get to the high end of my range -- but it is my "call to action". No panic -- just focus and "reset" as needed. I'm targeting a couple of pounds myself right now!
