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.

    You are taking care of yourself and I am so proud of you for that. It is so easy to slip back in to old habits and you have maintained your new healthy lifestyle by setting goals and keeping them. Good luck with the luncheon and take that relationship one day at a time. Just think how you would be with a friend and act accordingly because after all, it would be great to have her as your friend!
