BLC23 Cruise Goals

Friday, September 27, 2013

This is the snapshot of me as I step off the deck after our 12-week cruise on the good ship BLC23:

emoticon I start each day with prayer, meditation and exercise.
emoticon I strength train three days a week.
emoticon I weigh 12 pounds less.
emoticon I plan and prep the week's meals in advance on one day.
emoticon I follow my meal plan.
emoticon I am not vampire dessert because my HbA1C is below 6.5!!!

How will I get there? With S.M.A.R.T. goals, of course.

emoticon emoticon
Week 1: Prayer & meditation 5 min, exercise 10 min
Week 2: Prayer & meditation 5 min, exercise 15 min add strength 3 times per week (10 min cardio, 10 min strength to start)
emoticon emoticon emoticon
Week 3: Prayer & meditation 5 min, exercise 20 min
Week 4: Prayer & meditation 5 min, exercise 25 min
Week 5: Prayer & meditation 5 min, exercise 30 min
Week 6: Prayer & meditation 10 min, exercise 30 min
Week 7: Prayer & meditation 15 min, exercise 30 min
Week 8-10: Prayer & meditation 15 min (morning); add 5 min/week (evening), exercise 30 min

Each week
emoticon Plan and eat within Spark Nutrition Tracker or WW guidelines.
emoticon Block out Sunday on calendar and plan, shop and prep until I know how long it takes. Then block out the time needed on each Sunday.
emoticon Use support from Azurite team mates, Beck buddy Callie and awesome Beck coach Marsha to stick to it.
emoticon Do blood tests on awakening, before and after every meal or snack and before bed; treat appropriately.
It's out there, it's scary in writing now! emoticon

    Not so scary! Those all seem like very manageable, realistic goals--you can ROCK this challenge!

Question for you, because I'm experimenting with meditation to see what works best for me... how do you meditate? Do you meditate anything in particular (say, on the content of your prayers or scripture or something) or try to calm your mind or what? Do you use a meditation aid (like beads)?
