BLC23 Week 3 Evaluation and Week 4 Goals

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I thought I had finally lost back down to where I was at the end of BLC22, but I just checking the BLC22 ending stats, and I actually weighed less as of today than I did at the end of BLC22. I am not beating myself up for having put some back on during the hiatus; this journey has its ups and downs.

My goals will continue to be to maintain my 400+ minutes of exercise per week and to have fun. I am down just over 4 pounds in the first three weeks of BLC23 and in less than 3 pounds, I will be below 160 as I wished to be. Ideally, I will maintain around 150. I have my trackers set to lose slowly at this stage of my journey.

I didn't do as well with the 400+ minutes goal, and that surprised me. DH and I were camping, and I walked a lot, so I am not totally sure what happened. I didn't check it along the Wednesday thru Tuesday until this morning when I was totaling for the team stats. I was short, but I was above the first three weeks, so I imagine if I found an average of the four weeks, I would still be at 400). As for having fun on the journey, I enjoy the things that I do in order to be more healthy - the walking, exploring new exercises, interacting with my teams and sparkfriends, etc. Keeping myself as healthy as I can helps me to have healthy relationships when possible with others.

I wrote about a relationship in my life last week as I evaluated Week 2. I have a lunch scheduled for tomorrow with the person I wrote about. I must be careful to not get my hopes up for what I think is a "normal" relationship to occur eventually; all relationships have their ups and downs. This particular one may have more downs, but I am happy that I acted on my intentions to bring some possibly happy minutes into the situation. I had such lovely remarks on that blog; I am not good about sending Thank Yous in a timely matter, but they gave me such food for thought.

Being mindful of small goals helps me to be successful over time.
