Sunday, July 20, 2014 our BLC wide challenge....we have to write TWO blogs......Since I am on a roll....getting my second one done now! LOL! We are suppose to write what we are going to do now until the next round starts in September. I don't mind this one....I understand it......The underline to make one think ...plan...and hopefully execute what one is going to do in the interim. How many GAIN weight during the BLC breaks?

I plan on doing what I normally do.

I have a pattern now....and over time, it has gotten easier. When one first starts out, it is hard to always have healthy options on hand. I remember, I would buy stuff......and...never used it. I would have to throw food away due to expiration dates! LOL! I don't do that anymore! I stock what I like...what I look forward too......and keep a list on hand when I am getting low so I can restock next time I go to the store! SIMPLE ...right? YES it is...when you WANT it to be! When you don' gives one a GREAT excuse NOT too!

As far as fitness......I realized I am not some GUNG HO Babe that works out before work. I tried, but that is not me. I work from 7am to 7pm.....not happening. What I do walk the extra steps at work whenever possible. When we are slow......I do walk....a lot. This time of year...I swim when home at night. I love that.

My downfall .....the areas I need to REALLY work on....are veggies and being consistent. I need to do this DAILY....and not hit a few days here ...and a few days there. I am getting better. I have my active link and my spark tracker. I have to admit. I only wear my SPAT at work, but my active link 24/7. I love seeing my accomplishments they give me. You cannot FUDGE with electronic activity trackers.

In my INBETWEEN TIME....I won't be on the computer as much. I will get my stuff ready for next round....and check in with my friends....but...FOR time is so much less. This is the TIME of year to enjoy the sunshine......the OUTDOORS. I am cooped up too much in the winter along with the others! I also ......have found...I do the computer world less and less lately anyways. I want to LIVE life...and not talk about it so much. I am lucky, for I am finding my balance......and it is the best of BOTH worlds.

    I so agree with getting outside while we can. I really do not like winter any more. I am struggling on my BLC team because of all the documenting we do. It is easy to do the challenges but much harder to actually document it daily.
