BTS - Recap - Tales From 100# Down

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I just finished the first quarter of BTS (10 weeks) and am in the three week interim before the 2nd Quarter begins April 7th. It's a good time for review.

My Successes:

1) Daily connectivity to sparkpeople/team.

2) Many days when I would normally have "blown off" fitness I pressed on because of a team challenge.

3) When I stumbled I got up more quickly due to the encouragement and example of fellow team members.

4) I tried several new, healthy recipes.

5) I made new friends!

6) I was accountable to somebody which kept me from straying too far off the path.

My Stumbles:

1) Failure to track food on some days which always led to more calories eaten.

2) Settling for the minimum on fitness on days when I "could" have done more.

3) Eating too many calories in SUGAR

4) Eating too many meals out.

I look forward to the next quarter because we are going to do some new things and continue the things that HELP!

    Like Heather, I allowed the weather to throw me off track. But here's to a new round, and a fresh start!

    I think I allowed the weather to have too much of an impact on me this go-around. I gave into comfort foods and it definitely impacted my fitness.
Since the weather has improved slightly I'm much more motivated to go for a walk than to veg in front of the tv.
I'm looking forward to the next round too.

You got this :)

    This quarter was a learning curve for all of us. Next quarter will be much better. You can do and I know I can because of all I have learned from you and the other members.

Keep Pushing Forward!!! emoticon

    It's always good to list our successes, even if we also have a list of things that side-tracked us. Keep up the good work!
